Experimental COVID Vaccines: Mounting Deaths Reported in Media and Social Media … Part 5 of 12


Deaths and adverse events following COVID vaccines continue to mount after 168 million administered worldwide. Estimated incidence (adjusted for underreporting) of adverse events following each COVID vaccine is now: for every experimental COVID shot given, 1 person in approximately every 30 would report an adverse event (AE); 1 in approximately every 164 to 2,135 would report a serious adverse event (SAE), and 1 in approximately every 582 to 7,558 would report a death (if all AEs, SAEs and deaths were reported). Tragic deaths of two young physicians in the prime of their lives. Serious, disabling, and fatal neurological and cerebrovascular adverse events reported globally. Forced schools closures due to staff suffering vaccine adverse events. Unheeded warnings from medical specialists continue to prove true. Vaccine manufacturers have no liability for injuries or death from their products. Denial of public access to truth is violation of medical ethical principle of informed consent.  Updated death reports and more, in today’s article.

Worldwide Administration of Experimental COVID Vaccines Hits 168 Million Doses in 77 Countries

As COVID vaccination programs continue rolling out worldwide, the latest numbers show that 168 million doses in a total of 77 countries have been administered. In the U.S. alone, nearly 36 million Americans have had their first shot. See Table 1 for the most recent figures. Table 1 Covid Vaccines

The Experimental COVID Vaccines: The Trail of Death and Serious Injuries Continues to Mount…

memphis surgeonPhase 1a of CDC’s COVID vaccination program scheduled frontline medical workers and the elderly in long-term care facilities to receive the experimental COVID shots first, and has left a trail of death and serious injuries in its wake. This week we read about the tragic deaths of two young physicians in the prime of their lives — a 39-year pulmonary specialist in Ireland and a 36-year old orthopedic surgeon in Memphis — whose premature deaths followed experimental COVID vaccines. As Phase 1b is being rolled out, we are now starting to see adverse effects in other frontline essential workers receiving these experimental vaccines. Reports of school closures around the country are not uncommon, as teachers, school staff, substitutes, aides, bus drivers and more suffer adverse effects and become ill after receiving the COVID injections. A post on Facebook announced that Fairless Elementary in Navarre, Ohio was forced to close because so many staff were out sick, and the Sandy Creek School District in Syracuse New York closed after numerous staff members reported feeling ill following the second Moderna vaccine. “We are a small district, and we had so many folks down and out today that we didn’t have enough people to staff the schools,’’ Superintendent Kyle Faulkner said. The district is using an emergency day for the school closing.fairless elementary

As of February 5, 2021, CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) lists 653 deaths in their system — 539 in the U.S., 51 “foreign” and 63 “unknown” since the experimental vaccines were rolled out in mid-December. An additional 439 deaths have been published by the media through February 12th, 2021. See Table 2 for the most recent numbers of deaths following COVID vaccines, itemized by country.

table 2 deaths by country

The distribution of deaths in the U.S. listed by state is displayed in Table 3. 

table 3 Vaccine Deaths

California continues to lead in death counts with 45 deaths reported to date, Ohio is next with 35, followed by Kentucky with 32 reported deaths. The CDC also publishes an up-to-date tally of the number of vaccines administered in each state here. 

During this same period, through February 5th, a total of 12,697 adverse events appeared in VAERS, including 2,311 considered serious (see VAERS data reports). As always, keep in mind that these figures represent fewer than 1% of all the actual vaccine adverse events and only 1-13% of serious adverse events/deaths. 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, accurate numbers adjusted for underreporting could be calculated at 1,269,700 adverse events (AEs), 17,795 to 231,100 serious adverse events (SAEs), and 5,028 to 65,300 deaths — if all AEs, SAEs, and deaths were reported to date.

Experimental COVID Vaccines: Generating Hospitalizations, Emergency Room Visits, Office Visits and Permanent Disabilities

This week we also looked at the number of adverse events entered in VAERS by February 5th which required hospitalization, visit(s) to the emergency room, visit(s) to a doctor’s office, and those cases which resulted in permanent disability —please see Table 4.  Again, keep in mind that these numbers represent fewer than 1% of all the actual vaccine adverse events and only 1-13% of serious events/death are reported

table 4 hospitalizations

The latest 
CDC reports disclose that 25,192,628 Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines and 23,111,715 Moderna vaccines have been administered in the U.S. by February 12th. 

The Pfizer vaccine received its Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the FDA one week ahead of Moderna’s, explaining why Pfizer continues to lead in having administered more vaccines. AstraZeneca’s experimental vaccine was authorized for emergency use in UK end of December, and their rollout began the first week of January; India’s brand of the AstraZeneca vaccine, Covishield, began administration mid-January in India. Currently, Pfizer’s shot continues its lead in the numbers of deaths following vaccination, as reported by VAERS and the media (see Table 5).

Using data provided by
Bloomberg’s COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker, we obtained the total number of vaccine doses administered to Americans by February 5th — the date VAERS most recently uploaded reports to their system —adjusted for under-reporting, and then calculated the estimated incidence of adverse events and deaths reported by VAERS per the number of vaccines administered (see Table 6). To date, for every experimental COVID shot given, 1 person in approximately every 30 would report an adverse event (AE); 1 person in approximately every 164 to 2,135 would report a serious adverse event (SAE), and 1 person in approximately every 582 to 7,558 would report a death  if all AEs, SAEs, and deaths were reported. 

Unheeded Warnings from Medical Specialists on COVID Vaccines Part II: Focus on Neurological and Cerebrovascular-Related Complications

Since COVID vaccine rollouts began in December, we have been hearing news reports — both here and abroad —about devastating neurological adverse events such as Bell’s Palsy, encephalitis, Guillain Barré Syndrome, seizures/convulsions, transverse myelitis, strokes, and more. In the UK, Coronavirus Vaccine – Weekly Summary of Yellow Card Reporting just recounted 99 cases of facial paralysis or paresis from vaccine recipients, 13 similar reports came from Israel along with 26 people who reportedly suffered what the ministry described as “neurological symptoms” after receiving Pfizer’s experimental COVID vaccine.32 Mexican Doctor Suffers

A 32-year-old doctor from Mexico suffered seizures and become paralyzed after receiving the Pfizer experimental mRNA vaccine on December 30, 2020. She began having difficulty speaking and moving her legs and arms, and was initially diagnosed with encephalomyelitis, and then transverse myelitis — a known vaccine side effect, and specifically of the COVID experimental mRNA vaccines. The case of a 42-year-old nurse, a mother of two from the Island of Corfu was in the news this week after becoming paralyzed from the waist down following her second COVID vaccine. Prior to the shot, she was in perfect health. Shortly after receiving it, she developed a fever, excruciating pain, paralysis, and went to the hospital where she was diagnosed with Guillain–Barré syndrome — another known adverse effect of these vaccines. She is now confined to a wheelchair. shawn skelton

We recently heard the heartbreaking story of Shawn Skelton, a mother of four from Indiana who was in excellent health and working fulltime in a nursing home prior to taking the experimental Moderna vaccine. Within a few days of receiving the vaccine, she developed uncontrollable shaking and tongue spasms. She was discharged from Deaconess Orthopedic Neuroscience Hospital with “…still no answers… I have no hope so far, I’m praying a lot.” Her fiancé explained that doctors at the hospital told her that her problem is likely stress related. Now she is disabled, unable to work and her fiancé is having to take time off work to help care for her. If this was not enough, Stephen Doig, a data journalism professor at Arizona State University and board member of the National Center on Disability and Journalism, told the Daily Dot that Skelton “is clearly faking a problem.” Really, Mr. Doig. How did he arrive at his clinical conclusion? Did he examine her? What was the source of his medical knowledge? If he had actually taken the time to sincerely investigate, he would have discovered that the FDA and the vaccine manufacturers themselves have been and are well aware of the potential for precisely these adverse events from these experimental COVID vaccines (see FDA working list).

In last week’s article we focused on cardiac-related adverse events. We now turn our attention to the devastating neurological and cerebrovascular effects — potentially disabling injuries to the brain — we have been seeing in COVID vaccine recipients since the rollout programs began, both in the U.S. and abroad.

As we pointed out in last week’s article, there have been a number of medical experts — we mentioned Drs. J. Patrick Whelan, M.D. PhD and Hooman Noorchashm, M.D., Ph.D. — who issued written warnings to our health regulatory agencies about these mRNA COVID vaccines, predicting serious and potentially fatal injuries to the brain, heart, liver, and kidneys. Dr. Noorchashm expressed his concern that those patients with a recent history of a COVID-19 infection who then receive a COVID vaccine, would be likely to suffer from autoimmune attacks along the ACE-2 receptors present in the heart, brain, liver and kidneys. He explained that when the immune system attacks those tissues, it causes inflammation there. This certainly explains how these vaccines can cause the devastating injuries to the brain that we are now seeing only too frequently.

Additionally, as mentioned in last week’s article, Lyn Redwood, RN, MSN, director and president emerita of Children’s Health Defense also issued a plea to the FDA as well as to the CDC to protect the health of Americans by convening emergency meetings to review these concerns, and issue new guidelines for vaccine administration to address them. She warned, “Ignoring these valid and scientifically supported warnings from leading physicians may result in hundreds of millions of people suffering potentially deadly injuries or permanent damage following vaccination.” These sound warnings by concerned medical specialists have essentially been ignored, and sadly, evidence continues to reveal the precision and truthfulness of their predictions.

Judy Mikovits Ph.D., a virologist who uncovered the relationship between immune-based inflammation and chronic fatigue syndrome and autism, also explains the underlying mechanisms and biological effects these mRNA vaccines can have on the brain. According to Dr. Mikovits, these neurological adverse events that we are seeing, are the result of “… neuroinflammation and dysregulation of the immune system and endocannabinoid system… It’s the brain on fire,” she explains. “You’re going to see ticks, you’re going to see Parkinsonian disease, you’re going to see ALS, you’re going to see things like this developing at extremely rapid rates, and it’s inflammation of the brain… myalgic encephalomyelitis, inflammation of the brain and the spinal cord.” Unfortunately, the truth behind Dr. Mikovits’ predictions has certainly proven to be accurate. 

To corroborate these predictions from medical experts — related to potential nervous system complications from these vaccines — we first searched the European EudraVigilance Adverse Reporting System for data. Much like our VAERS, this is a vaccine adverse event reporting system for the European Economic Area (EEA), which includes all countries in the European Union (EU) as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway. We focused our search on the numbers of nervous system-related adverse events reported up through February 12th for both Pfizer and Moderna’s experimental COVID vaccines (see graphs). The total number of individual cases of adverse events for those who took the Pfizer vaccine was 14,065, with 328 for Moderna’s. The largest number of adverse neurological events occurred in the 18 to 64 years of age group for both jabs, and female vaccine recipients experiencing these complications greatly outnumbered males in both vaccine groups. There are a total of 60 fatalities from neurological injuries — 58 after Pfizer’s jab and 2 following Moderna’s. Keep in mind that these numbers do not include psychiatric disorders such as anxiety and depression, many of which can be related to the same mechanism of neuroinflammation noted by Dr. Mikovits.

Next, we searched VAERS for specific neurological and cerebrovascular-related adverse events listed in this database through February 5th, tracking the numbers of these events deemed serious and those that resulted in permanent disability and death. Results are shown in Table 7. There were 163 reported cases of Bell’s Palsy, 9 with encephalitis, 15 events of Guillain-Barré Syndrome, 68 who experienced seizures, 3 who developed transverse myelitis and 82 people who suffered strokes or TIA’s; a search of those experiencing psychiatric disorders was not performed. Keep in mind that these include only those cases entered into VAERS by February 5th, and that these represent fewer than 1% of all the actual vaccine adverse events and only 1-13% of serious events/death are reported. In other words, accurate numbers adjusted for under-reporting, could be as high as 15,600 cases of Bell’s Palsy, 900 cases of encephalitis, 1,500 cases of Guillain-Barré, 6,800 cases of seizures, 300 cases of transverse myelitis, and 8,200 strokes or TIA’s.  Examples of individual cases for each category are:

table 7 neurological
1) Bell’s Palsy

Bell’s palsy is a form of facial paralysis or weakness on one side of the face, resulting in a temporary — usually lasting a few weeks to six months — inability to control the facial muscles on the affected side of the face. In some cases, there may be permanent muscle weakness. 

    • 29-year-old male from Illinois: “Bell’s palsy, right side of face is numb, with difficulty closing eyes, smiling, raising eyebrows, eating, drinking, swallowing.”
    • 41-year-old female from Alaska: “The day of vaccination, this employee did not experience symptoms. She woke up on 12/18/2020 with paresthesia to R side of face, that became progressively worse, and is now on the entire R side of her body. This employee’s face has a slight droop and asymmetric smile on the R side.”
2) Encephalitis

Encephalitis is inflammation of the brain, which can cause headache, confusion, seizures, loss of sensation or paralysis, problems with senses such as sight or hearing, and in some cases it can be life-threatening.

    • 33-yo male from Arizona: “Vaccine [Pfizer] received 12/19, began to feel ill later that evening. Night sweats and emesis. With confusion and hallucinations. Admitted to the hospital 12/21-12/27/20 for encephalitis.”
    • 69-yo male from Ohio: [Pfizer vaccine 1/8/21] “01-09-2021 very confused, nauseous, sweating profusely. sent to hospital – admitted with encephalitis, severe cognition decline. 01-13-2021 still in hospital, cognition Improved.”
3) Guillain-Barré Syndrome

Guillain-Barré syndrome is an autoimmune disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks its own nerves, causing weakness and tingling in the extremities as the first symptoms; these sensations can spread quickly causing eventual paralysis of the entire body.

    • 40-year-old female from Texas: “Patient developed symptoms of Guillain-Barré syndrome on January 15, 2021 and was admitted the hospital. She was diagnosed and eventually required ICU level care and has been treated with plasmapheresis. She is currently still in the ICU but is stable.”
    • 36-year-old female from New York: “Patient presented to the emergency department with sensory loss and loss of reflexes, evaluated by neurology and diagnosed with Guillain-Barré Syndrome thought to be secondary to the Pfizer COVID Vaccine.”
4) Seizures/convulsions
    • 19-year-old male from West Virginia: “Within 5 minutes, started feeling very tired and dizzy, leaned head back trying to relax. Approximately 15 minutes after vaccine had seizure lasting up to 15 seconds possibly. Brought to floor carefully. Then had small second seizure (about 5 seconds in duration). Difficulty Breathing immediately. Then extreme trouble breathing/stopped breathing, given 0.3 mg EpiPen in right thigh, gasped and began breathing again…”
    • 43-year-old male from Michigan: “I received the vaccine at 6:30pm on 12/27. I worked at 7pm and took lunch at 2:00am. After lunch, I immediately felt sick to my stomach and threw up. I went home after my shift and went to bed. After 5 hours, I woke up and went to the couch to lay down while kids watched TV. Next, I woke to several people in my house. I had a seizure and my son had called 911. I was taken to emergency department. I was admitted and stayed 2 nights in the hospital.”
5) Transverse Myelitis

Transverse Myelitis is an autoimmune disorder where the immune system attacks the body’s own spinal nerve tissues — in this case resulting in inflammation of the spinal cord. Symptoms, which develop over a few hours to a few days are pain, muscle weakness, paralysis, sensory problems, or bladder and bowel dysfunction.

    • 39-year-old female from Massachusetts: Numbness tingling in feet, toes progressed to waist. ER Sunday hosp, pt was admitted inpatient, diagnosis transverse myelitis.”
    • A 37-year-old female from Tennessee: “On 12/27 feet started feeling like pins sticking in then numbness & cold non-stop. This sensation gradually moved up to the waistline area. Then total numbness, heaviness in legs, making it difficult to walk. There is also a raised, red rash that burns. Her symptoms are not better.”
6) Cerebrovascular: Cerebrovascular Accident/CVA (“Stroke”) and Transient Ischemic Attack/TIA (“Mini-stroke”) 

A cerebrovascular accident (CVA), commonly known as a “stroke” occurs when the blood supply to a part of the brain is stopped — either due to a blockage (i.e., blood clot) or the rupture of a blood vessel (cerebral hemorrhage or bleed). A TIA is sometimes called a “mini-stroke” because it looks like a stroke, but symptoms disappear in less than 24 hours.

    • 33-year-old female from Texas with no previous medical history: “Pfizer-BioNTech COVID- 19 Vaccine EUA Received communication that patient experienced a stroke and received alteplase at a non-facility (Medical Center) 5 days after receiving COVID-19 vaccination.”
    • 51-year-old female from Michigan with no prior medical history received Pfizer COVID vaccine 1/5/21: “1/8/2021 17:30 patient taken to ER, cerebellar hemorrhage, stroke, aneurysm.”

Important Reminder: Vaccine Manufacturers have no Liability for Injuries or Death Caused by their Experimental Products

It is important to remember that vaccine manufacturers have no liability for vaccine injuries or deaths from any of these experimental COVID vaccines. This is clearly stated in the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREP Act), enacted by Congress in February 2020. If the new technology in COVID-19 vaccines injures or kills us or our loved ones, vaccine manufacturers have blanket indemnity, and cannot be sued for any injury or death caused by their experimental vaccine young girl

In the U.S., the only possibility for receiving any compensation for casualties from these investigational products is to file a claim with the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICV), which Congress created to cover any liability related to pandemics. Sadly, according to CNBC  the CICV “…is difficult to use and rarely pays. Attorneys say it has compensated less than 6% of the claims filed in the last decade.” Hardly good news for those who have been disabled or who have died… and for that matter, financial compensation does not help someone recover or bring a loved one back to life.

jacqueline GiffordSpeaking of losing our loved ones, the heartbreaking story of beautiful 28-year-old Sara was posted this week on a Gofundme page, in an effort by her family members to raise funds to pay for her funeral. *Facebook posts from friends and family reveal that Sara was in perfect health prior to taking two experimental Pfizer COVID vaccines [*injuries and deaths reported on social media are unconfirmed]. Just 5 days after receiving her second shot, she suffered a brain aneurysm and hemorrhagic stroke. She never recovered consciousness, and will be taken off life support after the organs which she previously agreed to donate are removed. 

How can something so unthinkable happen to a young person in the prime of life? Could Sara or her loved ones — even in their most horrific nightmares — have envisioned such a devastating outcome from taking these shots? It is unlikely, considering how these emergency-authorized experimental vaccines are relentlessly touted as “safe and effective” by our health “authorities” and media, and adverse events and deaths following in their wake are persistently deemed as “unrelated” to them. Did Sara die as a consequence of trusting what she heard? marcella_post

The truth is that for a healthy 28-year-old — like Sara was prior to receiving the Pfizer vaccines — if she had contracted COVID-19 illness her chances of survival were 99.98%! Was Sara aware of her infinitesimally small risk —0.02% — of dying from COVID-19 illness? Were Sara and her family aware that the vaccine manufacturers and our health authorities do not even know if these shots can prevent COVID infection or transmission? Does this not amount to a violation of the medical ethical principle of informed consent, when the public is denied access to the truth — that these vaccines are NOT proving to be safe — and that they have the potential to cause serious harm and even kill us? Do you think Sara, or her loved ones would have even considered taking such a risk if they had been properly informed of these facts? 


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) and reporting systems outside the US. 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.
