Experimental COVID Vaccines: Mounting Deaths Reported in Media and Social Media … Part 3 of 12


Deaths following COVID vaccines continue to mount. Under an Emergency Use Authorization, the investigational COVID vaccines must be voluntary, however, employers are mandating experimental COVID vaccines, coercing injections with threat of job loss. Nurses refusing to get COVID vaccines, and some refusing to give it. India launches Covishield. Global agencies do an about-face and now recommend vaccinating pregnant women, despite early evidence of miscarriage. Updated death reports, and more, in today’s article.

Nearly 100 Million Experimental COVID Vaccines have been Administered Worldwide with Warp Speed

Picking up where we left off with our last article (Part 2 of 2), the updated numbers of COVID vaccines administered worldwide through January 31st are now nearing almost 100 million doses. See Table 1 for the most recent figures:

Mounting Death Toll Continues…

CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) currently lists 329 deaths — 261 in the U.S., 44 “foreign” and 24 “unknown” — entered into their system through January 22nd. An additional 156 deaths were published by the media through January 31st. Only a week prior, through January 15th, VAERS listed 181 deaths following COVID-19 vaccines, with an additional 94 deaths published in the media through January 24th.  See Table 2 for the most recent numbers itemized by country.

Please note that the numbers of deaths and adverse events currently reported on the VAERS website are likely to be only a fraction of the actual cases reported to them to date. Many of the “new” cases — those entered between January 15th and January 22nd — are older reports, dated prior to January 15th. It is also important to remember that VAERS is a passive reporting system, and that the number of cases reported account for fewer than 1% of all the actual vaccine adverse events and only 1-13% of serious events/death are reported. Therefore, more accurate figures are obtained by multiplying the number of reported adverse events by 100 (i.e., to account for the fewer than 1% reported), and serious events and deaths by 7.7 and again by 100, to account for the range of 1-13% reported. Thus, the actual number of deaths following COVID vaccinations — adjusted for underreporting — could be calculated at approximately 2,533 to 32,900 — not 329.

Through January 22nd, a total of 9,845 adverse events were entered into VAERS, including 1,234 deemed serious (see VAERS reports). Again, keep in mind that these figures represent fewer than 1% of all the actual vaccine adverse events and only 1-13% of serious events/death are reported. More accurate numbers — adjusted for underreporting — would be closer to 984,500 adverse events and between 9,502 and 123,400 serious adverse events!  

The distribution of deaths in the U.S. listed by state is displayed in Table 3. California leads the death statistics with 22 deaths reported so far. The CDC also publishes an up-to-date tally of the number of  vaccines administered in each state here.

The CDC reports that close to 16,775,916 Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines and 14,246,089 Moderna vaccines have been administered in the U.S. to date. The Pfizer vaccine received its Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the FDA one week prior to Moderna’s, giving them a head start. Thus, Pfizer has administered more vaccines than Moderna. 

COVID Vaccine Deaths by state

The death toll following Pfizer’s COVID vaccine continues to exceed that of Moderna’s jab both in the U.S. and abroad, and now with AstraZeneca’s vaccination campaign recently beginning in India, fatalities are mounting rapidly (see Table 4). The AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine was developed in the UK, and previously authorized for emergency use in Britain, Argentina, and El Salvador. It is being produced locally by the Serum Institute of India (SII) under the brand name Covishield. It was just authorized for use in India, and India’s COVID-vaccination program began January 16th

Since then, the media has reported nine Indian healthcare workers — six men and three women with ages ranging from 27 to 56 — have died between 24 hours and five days after taking the experimental Covisheld vaccine. All deaths have been attributed to cardiovascular problems or “brain stroke.” 447 adverse events were reported in the first two days of the inoculation program, including serious cases requiring hospitalization. India’s foreign ministry said that they have started exporting their Covishield vaccines to neighboring countries including Bhutan and Maldives, with plans to distribute them next to Bangladesh and Nepal.

Phase 1a: Leaving a Trail of Death and Serious Injuries in the Elderly and Frontline Healthcare Workers

In our last article, we outlined the CDC’s phased COVID-vaccination program, which began in mid-December 2020 with phase 1a, calling for frontline healthcare workers and the elderly residents of long-term care facilities to receive these non-FDA-approved, investigational vaccines first. With this phase nearing its end, the rate of deaths and serious adverse reactions reported by the media and to CDC’s VAERS  has escalated. The high death toll in the elderly was detailed in our last article, and now, with increasing frequency, we are hearing about healthcare workers of all ages who have died within hours or weeks of taking the experimental COVID vaccines. A few of the recent cases are:

  • A 41-year old pediatric assistant from Portugal was found dead in her bed 2 days after her first Pfizer vaccine.
  • A 56-year old obstetrician in Miami who had been in perfect health prior to his Pfizer vaccination, was hospitalized 3 days after his first shot, and died from thrombocytopenia, an autoimmune disease a few weeks later.
  • The death of an 18-29-year-old male healthcare worker in New Jersey who died at work in the hospital was reported to VAERS: “On day due for 2nd dose, patient was found unresponsive at work in the hospital. Patient pupils were fixed and dilated…”
  • A 60-year-old x-ray technician who worked at Coastal Global Medical Center in Santa Ana, began complaining of abdominal pain and difficulty breathing 2 ½ hours after receiving his second dose of the Pfizer vaccine. Two days later, he was put into a medically induced coma and on a ventilator and rushed to UC Irvine Medical Center, where he died.
  • A 39-year old nurse’s aide in Ohio died within 48 hours of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. Her brother related, “She was coming home from work and as soon as she drove into her parking lot she passed away.” The mother of two was reportedly required by her employer, a skilled nursing facility, to have the vaccination or else lose her employment. “Yes, it was a mandatory vaccine that she had to take for her job,” her brother reported. Sadly, since the vaccine is not FDA-approved and only allowed to be administered under an Emergency Use Permit, it is illegal to mandate it. It must be voluntary.

While many healthcare workers are being pressured to take these experimental vaccines, some medical facilities are even mandating them for their employees. We are currently seeing many workers refusing employer-mandated vaccines, even at the cost of losing their employment. For example, a nursing home in Wisconsin, informed staff that the investigational Moderna vaccine was “a requirement for all staff” and those who did not comply would be laid off.  Staff were told that those laid-off employees “will not be allowed to return to work until they have completed the COVID-19 vaccine series.” To make matters worse, staff who had their first Moderna vaccine are having side effects, and according to a secretary at the nursing home they are being told, “Too bad.” 28 employees at the home have sent complaints to the county’s Health Services Committee outlining their concerns about the mandated vaccines. It appears many are electing to lose their jobs rather than be forced to take vaccines that they believe to be dangerous. Estimates from the American Health Care Association are that about 50 percent of long-term care staff are declining the experimental vaccines. In Ohio, the governor said that 60% of nursing home staff in his state declined the vaccine when it was offered. 

The fact is that the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have only received an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA)  from the FDA — they are not fully licensedStates may not mandate the vaccines, and private employers do so at the danger of violating federal law.  Under 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3, “Authorization for medical products for use in emergencies”, any product with the designation of an EUA means that its use must be voluntary. Why are so many employers imposing mandates for their workers as a requirement for their employment? How is it possible that bills to mandate these experimental COVID vaccines are even being proposed?  Are our legislators unaware of the law?  

Aside from frontline workers from long-term care facilities, we are also seeing more and more healthcare personnel from hospitals and clinics refusing to take these experimental COVID vaccines, even though this could cost them their jobs. The Los Angeles Times reported that, in Northern California, fewer than half of the staff at St. Elizabeth Community Hospital were willing to take the vaccine. Public health records in Los Angeles show that approximately 20 to 40% of all frontline workers refused to take the investigational COVID vaccines, while in Riverside County about 50% declined them. The media is reporting the same pattern overseas, where 87,000 nurses in the Netherlands refused the experimental vaccines, stating they “… are not guinea  pigs.”  

There are even some nurses who are now refusing to administer these investigational COVID vaccines. Four nurses at a rural health department in Coffey County Kansas are refusing to give any COVID-19 vaccines, citing concerns about their safety. Lindsay Payer, Coffey County Public Health Administrator said, “I strongly feel that if people want this vaccine, they should receive it. Absolutely. But just like it’s their choice to receive it or not, I feel like it should also be my choice to give it or not.”

With Phase 1a of the CDC’s COVID vaccination program leaving a trail of death and serious injuries in its wake, we are now beginning to move into Phase 1b. This next phase of the program calls for frontline essential workers (i.e., fire fighters, police officers, corrections officers, food and agricultural workers, United States Postal Service workers, manufacturing workers, grocery store workers, public transit workers), the educational sector (i.e., teachers, support staff, and daycare workers) and people 75-years of age and older to receive these investigational vaccines. After seeing so many elderly residents of long-term care facilities and healthcare workers who have died or suffered serious adverse effects from these experimental shots, many who are called to be next in line are understandably apprehensive — and plan to refuse them. Already, more than  half of the 2,000 members of New York’s Uniformed Firefighters Association (UFA) have said they will refuse the vaccine when it is offered. The UFA’s president, Andrew Ansboro, has said that the union will defend their right to make that choice. Unfortunately, not all unions are supportive of their member’s right to choose. According to Teachers for Choice, it appears that all New York Teacher Unions are pushing for coercive medical mandates for teachers to keep their jobs. Teachers for Choice have just released their demands, and if they are not met, they will divert their union dues into an Emergency Health Protection Fund to defend their right to choose or refuse experimental medical procedures. In the coming weeks as Phase 1b of the CDC’s COVID vaccination program rolls out, we can likely expect to see those employers mandating experimental medical products to be challenged in court.

WHO, CDC, ACIP now Recommending Experimental Vaccines in Pregnancy — WHY?

This week, a deeply concerning issue arose. The World Health Organization (WHO) suddenly reversed its initial conservative guidelines on the use of experimental COVID vaccines during pregnancy. Although the Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccines have never been tested on pregnant women, the WHO has now adopted the position of recommending these experimental products for pregnant women. On January 26th, WHO issued the following statement: “… based on what we know about this kind of vaccine, we don’t have any specific reason to believe there will be specific risks that would outweigh the benefits of vaccination for pregnant women.” The CDC and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommend that, “People who are pregnant and part of a group recommended to receive COVID-19 vaccine, such as healthcare personnel, may choose to be vaccinated.”

A review of various cases of adverse effects in pregnant women reported to VAERS over the past month reveals that there may very well be “…specific risks that would outweigh the benefits of vaccination for pregnant women.” Here are just a few examples:

  • “I was 28 weeks and 5 days pregnant when I received the first dose of the COVID19 vaccine. Two days later (12/25/2020 in the afternoon), I noticed decreased motion of the baby. The baby was found to not have a heartbeat in the early am on 12/26/2020 and I delivered a 2lb 7oz nonviable female fetus at 29 weeks gestation.” 
  • “Contractions at 26 w 3 days sent to L&D to be monitored on 12/28/20. Covid-19 Sars Vaccine given 1st dose 12/27/20. Patient was diagnosed with Fetal Hydrops. Patient Hospitalized 12/28/20” 
  • “January 15th baby no longer had a heartbeat after two previous visits confirming heartbeat and EDD.” [Moderna’s vaccine was administered 12/22/20]
  • “I suffered a miscarriage on 12/31/2020. I was at 5 weeks gestation. This was my first pregnancy. I had uterine bleeding and abdominal cramps on 12/31/2020 and underwent evaluation by my Obstetrician and was diagnosed with a miscarriage after ultrasound.”
  • “Pt was 18 weeks pregnant at the time of the vaccine. Second pregnancy. Pt is a physician. Pregnancy was entirely normal up to that time. On 1/18/2021, she began to have heavy vaginal bleeding probably due to a placental abruption and subsequently delivered at 18 weeks. Baby was stillborn. Ultrasound done 1/15/2021 normal. Lethal event for the fetus.”

How is it possible that the WHO, the CDC, the ACIP, and the various healthcare providers advising these women would recommend they take experimental medical products incorporating brand new mRNA technology, which have never been tested in pregnancy? On what evidence did the WHO base their statement, “… we don’t have any specific reason to believe there will be specific risks that would outweigh the benefits of vaccination for pregnant women?” How did they arrive at this conclusion?

Boiling it Down to the Crux of the Matter: Weighing the Risks against Potential Benefits of the Vaccines

Although the media incessantly assures us that these experimental COVID vaccines are “safe and effective,” it is truly up to us to ultimately examine the facts and determine the truth of this for ourselves and our loved ones. A review of the initial evidence which has unfolded over the last month — the myriad of serious adverse events and deaths reported in this article alone — reveals that these investigational vaccines can hardly be considered safe. In fact, it appears to be quite the opposite!

This brings us to the next questions: “Are they effective? What are their potential benefits?  To find answers to these questions, we can refer to what was outlinfatality survival rates covid19ed in our previous article (Part 2 of 2)Dr. Fauci and the WHO acknowledge that health officials do not know if these vaccines can prevent COVID infection or the spread of the virus to others. Dr. Fauci has also admitted that the only potential benefit could be reducing the severity of symptomatic COVID-19 infection and has even confessed that they do not know how long this limited immunity might last. It is quite clear that potential benefits of these vaccines are less than encouraging. 

Finally, when considering any healthcare procedure or product, the personal decision should always boil down to weighing the potential benefits against the risks. We have just examined the potential benefits… so, what are the risks? First, we know that the estimated fatality and survival rates for COVID-19 illness are indisputably high (see Table 5). Frankly, the potential benefits of these experimental vaccines are hardly reassuring… particularly when we consider the remarkably high likelihood of surviving COVID-19 illness, should we contract it. Ultimately, considering the enormous death toll, suffering, and disability unfolding in the wake of these experimental COVID vaccines, what could possibly justify taking such a risk?  


This article contains a growing list of deaths that occurred after the experimental COVID vaccine was administered. The death reports are culled from the media and from social media, as well as from the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). Injuries and deaths reported on social media are unconfirmed. Although the deaths are temporally related to the COVID vaccination, Children’s Health Defense – California Chapter cannot claim the COVID vaccine definitively caused the deaths. That said, the symptom patterns and timing are highly suspicious, and tend to follow patterns of adverse events widely recognized to occur after other vaccinations. The death reports serve as anecdotes that may soon establish a pattern. Children’s Health Defense – California Chapter is providing regular updates on newly reported deaths that occur after COVID vaccination. As always, Children’s Health Defense – California Chapter supports fully informed consent and no medical mandates. This is not medical advice.
