Reports collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration reveal that 966 U.S. individuals have died after receiving mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.
According to The Epoch Times, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) followed vaccinations by Moderna and Pfizer between December 14 2020 and February 19 2021. The system reported 966 deaths of people who received either of these vaccines, the only two available at that time, which represents 5% of the total number of 19,769 adverse events reported. The report noted that 472 people died after receiving the Moderna vaccine, and 489 died after getting the Pfizer vaccine. Five other people died after getting a shot from an unknown manufacturer, according to Newsweek.
According to the Times, the death rate of the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines is much higher than that of the flu vaccine which was associated with 0.0000265% of deaths in vaccinated people in 2019. The COVID-19 vaccine rate of death as of Feb. 19 was .0023%.
When asked about the VAERS death report, Steven Denehy, director of Media Relations at Pfizer, said, “To date, millions of people have been vaccinated with our vaccine. Serious adverse events, including deaths that are unrelated to the vaccine, are unfortunately likely to occur at a similar rate as they would in the general population.”
However, an infectious disease expert in France, Dr. Christian Perrone, filed a complaint against mRNA vaccines in Europe stating that they are “not vaccines. They are gene therapy products. They inject nucleic acids that will cause our own cells to produce elements of the virus,” according to the Times.
Newsweek launched its own investigation of the VAERS data but included all adverse reports of death up to February 26. They counted a total of 970 people who died after getting their shots — remarkably close to the results published in the Times.
The CDC stated on March 1 that “To date, VAERS has not detected patterns in cause of death that would indicate a safety problem with COVID-19 vaccines.”
Kent Woods, the former chief executive of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency in the U.K. told Newsweek that when someone dies after receiving a vaccine it does not prove the drug caused the death.
