As of July 9, 11 Vermont deaths from Covid-19 vaccination have been reported on the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), according to research conducted for Vermont Daily.
Vermont Health Dept. Commissioner Mark Levine said VAERS reports are not verified as accurate by health professionals. “The reality is they are just raw reports,” he said at today’s press conference.
However, merely finding a VAERS report on the cumbersome CDC website is not a simple task. Filing one is daunting. Also, falsifying a VAERS report is a federal crime punishable by imprisonment.
There are no reported incidences of vaccine-related Guillan-Barre syndrome, which has emerged as a major concern worldwide.
Serious adverse events total 68, per the breakdown by age below:
Many reports from the link above resemble the report about a woman who survived: “Patient experienced dizziness, numb tongue, difficulty swallowing, difficulty breathing, and inability to move arms and legs. The patient had no COVID prior vaccination and had not tested post vaccination. Therapeutic measures were taken as a result of the events which included: Epinephrine, ER treatment, and Prednisone. The events resulted in: Emergency room care and life threatening illness.”
Of those 68 serious adverse events, 8 occurred same day.
Also, Covid-19 vaccines make up 30% of all reports to VAERS for all vaccines since 1990.
Further, Healthcare providers are required by law (42 U.S. Code § 300aa-25) to report to VAERS. Vaccine manufacturers are required to report to VAERS all adverse events that come to their attention. Yet for whatever reason, experts say, the trend is to under-reporting.
Former FDA Commissioner, Dr. David A. Kessler (MD, JD) stated, “Although the FDA receives many adverse event reports, these probably represent only a fraction of the serious adverse events encountered by providers.”
A 2010 federal study commissioned by Health and Human Services (HHS) and performed by Harvard consultants on behalf of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) found that “fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events” are ever reported to VAERS.
