Using MedAlerts, I queried the CDC’s VAERS database for adverse effects from COVID vaccines. From about mid-December 2020 to 6 August 2021, there were
12.791 reports of deaths following the vaccine.
559,040 reports of adverse events not including deaths.
CDC’s own studies of VAERS indicate it only captures about 1% of actual adverse events. Even if that’s low, at 25%, which I think is high for a passive system, that means millions of people have suffered after vaccination.
In 1976, the government abruptly stopped vaccination for swine flu after 53 vaccine-related deaths.
I think the bar for what we consider a safe drug has been lowered over the years.
