Data from vaccine adverse event reporting systems in the US (VAERS), the EU (EUDRA) and the UK (MHRA) indicates that covid vaccinations have already been associated with more than 10,000 deaths and tens of thousands serious adverse events, including allergic shocks, neurological, cardiac and cardiovascular disorders, and miscarriages. These figures may be an underestimate, as vaccine reporting systems typically cover only a fraction of adverse events.

Some post-vaccination deaths may be unrelated to the vaccination. However, in the US, about 50% of post-vaccination deaths occurred in people who became ill within 48 hours of being vaccinated. In addition, in the United States and Europe combined, several hundred cases of blindness, deafness, and Guillain-Barré syndrome have been reported shortly after covid vaccinations.

Compared to the hundreds of millions of covid vaccinations already performed, these numbers are small. Compared to the amount of covid deaths, too, these numbers are small. But compared to the standards for safe medical products, these numbers are certainly significant. Moreover, little is still known about the long-term safety profile of covid vaccines. Back in 2009/2010, it took one year for the public to learn about neurological damages caused by swine flu vaccine adjuvants.

US physician Dr. J. Patrick Whelan had warned the US FDA already in early December 2020 that vaccines based on the coronavirus spike protein may themselves trigger symptoms of severe systemic covid, including blood clots, pulmonary embolism and brain inflammation, even in children and young adults, who normally fight off a coronavirus infection in its early stages. In April 2021, Whelan’s prediction was confirmed (“SARS-CoV-2 spike protein alone may cause lung damage”).

Regarding vaccine effectiveness, real-world studies indicate that after the second vaccine dose, effectiveness reaches about 90% in people up to 60 years old, but only about 65% in people over 80 years old. About one third of people over 80 do not develop neutralizing antibodies.

As New York attorney Aaron Siri pointed out in an article on StatNews, neither governments nor employers are currently permitted to require covid vaccinations, as covid vaccines are experimental vaccines that have not yet been licensed: they only received an “emergency use authorization” in the US and a “conditional marketing authorisation” in the EU. Indeed, the US FDA specifically notes that covid vaccines are “investigational vaccines not licensed for any indication.”

Case reports

To study verified case reports of vaccine-related deaths and injuries, see:



April 2021

  • Israel: Increase in all-cause mortality and reports of a “murky wave of heart attacks”. More.
  • AstraZeneca vaccine: Suspended in several countries due to blood clots. Read more.
  • J&J vaccine: The J&J vaccine got temporarily suspended in the US due to blood clots.
  • AstraZeneca: The Norwegian Institute of Public Health stopped vaccinations with AstraZeneca, arguing thatthe risk of dying after vaccination with the AstraZeneca vaccine would be higher than the risk of dying from the disease, particularly for younger people.”
  • Thrombocytopenia: AstraZeneca confirmed that thrombocytopenia (low blood platelet count due to an autoimmune reaction) is a ‘frequent vaccine adverse event (1% to 10%)’.
  • Cerebral venous thrombosis: The risk after vaccination may be higher than after covid.

May 2021

  • J&J vaccine: Denmark stops the use of J&J, as “benefits do not outweigh the risks.”

June 2021

  • Myocarditis: Israel confirms that mRNA vaccines may cause heart muscle inflammation.
  • Vaccination of children: The German vaccine commission (STIKO) advised against the general vaccination of children below 16 years of age.
  • US FDA: Several doctors asked the FDA to stop the licensing process of all covid vaccines.
  • Guillian-BarrĂ© syndrome: The German Paul Ehrlich Institute confirmed that GBS occurred “at an increased rate” and might constitute a “new risk signal”.

Israel: Post-vaccination increase in mortality

Israel experienced a post-vaccination increase in 65+ all-cause mortality. Read more.

USA: Post-vaccination increase in all-cause mortality

In the US, all-cause mortality has been increasing in many younger age groups since about March/April 2021, despite a significant decrease in covid deaths since January.
