Latest data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) on deaths and injuries after receiving the COVID (CCP virus) vaccine show a jump of nearly 4,000 reported cases in just one week.
Between Dec. 14, 2020, and Feb. 18, 2021, 19,907 reports of adverse events have been reported to VAERS, including 1,095 deaths and 3,767 serious injuries.
Roughly a third of the deaths reported occurred within 48 hours of vaccination, and almost half of the people who died became ill within 48 hours of being vaccinated.
The first such data was released in December, and the trend has been the same. By comparison, during the same period—Dec. 14, 2020 to Feb. 18, 2021, VAERS received reports of 83 deaths following flu vaccines.
According to the VAERS website, “it is important to note that for any reported event, no cause-and-effect relationship has been established … VAERS collects data on any adverse event following vaccination, be it coincidental or truly caused by a vaccine. The report of an adverse event to VAERS is not documentation that a vaccine caused the event.”
Dr. J. Patrick Whelan, a pediatric rheumatologist, warned the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in December that mRNA vaccines like those developed by Pfizer and Moderna could cause inflammation of the brain and heart and other injuries in ways not assessed in safety trials, reports LifeSiteNews.
At least one-fifth of the deaths reported were heart-related.
Life Site reports that of the registered deaths, 966 were in the United States and 129 outside the United States. The average age of the deceased was 77.8; the youngest was 23. Of those who died, 53% were male, 46% female, and 1% of the reports did not include gender. Of those who died, 56% received the Pfizer vaccine, and 43% got the Moderna vaccine.
While Whelan said the vaccines had the potential to stop the virus’s spread quickly (assuming that the vaccines prove actually to prevent transmission—also not assessed in the clinical trials). Although he cautioned that “it would be vastly worse if hundreds of millions of people were to suffer long-lasting or even permanent damage to their brain or heart microvasculature as a result of failing to appreciate in the short-term an unintended effect of full-length spike protein-based vaccines on other organs.”
As of Feb. 18, 57.74 million COVID vaccines had been administered in the United States.
