FACT: There has been a massive increase in deaths reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) this year. That’s not a ‘conspiracy theory’, that’s an indisputable fact. You can try to explain it or justify it, or even argue it doesn’t matter, but you can’t deny it.

We’re not talking about a modest increase in death reports, something we might chat about in concerned voices over Chai tea and bagels at a company mixer. We’re talking about a huge and unprecedented increase—so massive that in the last 4 months alone, VAERS has received over 40% of all death reports it has ever received in its entire 30+year history. So massive it’s literally “off the chart.” The first chart in the pair below shows VAERS death reports from 2014 thru 2020. If you tried to add the 2021 data to it, it would be way, way off the chart. The second chart shows how much detail was lost when the 2021 data was squeezed in.

The pair of charts below are another illustration. Notice all age groups had an increase in death reports from the COVID-19 vaccines—with both the 18-64 and 65+ age groups experiencing a dramatic “off the chart” increase.

The increase in VAERS death reports is not due to more vaccination

Even with the COVID-19 shots, the estimated total vaccines administered so far this year is less than the yearly average–because we are only a quarter of the way through this year. No doubt the vaccine count will climb much higher by the end of this year, but it’s not the reason for the massive increase in VAERS death reports over the last 4 months.

The following chart compares estimates of vaccines administered with deaths reported to VAERS, separating COVID-19 vaccines from other vaccines. The rate of reported deaths for other vaccines looks fairly normal; the massive increase is mainly from the COVID-19 vaccines.

There are many notes at the end of this paper about how the vaccine data was estimated, and where the data for these charts was obtained, along with the data table.

What the official experts have to say (*crickets*)

With all the many experts at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ostensibly dedicated to COVID-19 and vaccine safety, not a single one has attempted to explain or analyze, or has even mentioned, the massive increase in deaths reported to VAERS from the COVID-19 shots. The silence is telling.

But it’s not as if VAERS death reports are being hidden, exactly. VAERS data is freely available to the public…and if you don’t want to look it up, you can follow the CDC’s COVID-19 Vaccine Death Count online, which is updated regularly. Just scroll down to the section called “Reports of death after COVID-19 vaccination” for the latest numbers. Most recently, the death count went from 2794 on April 5, to 3005 on April 12, to 3848 on April 26. But a mere 1054 deaths in 21 days is no problem for the CDC—it probably just means the vaccines are working.

Covid 19 vaccine death count.jpg

I found only one paper (1) that mentioned VAERS death reports re COVID-19 vaccines. The lead author was Julianne Gee, from the CDC’s COVID-19 Response Team, and the paper concerned safety monitoring during the first month (December 14 to January 13). We are told, in the Summary:

“Monitoring … indicates reassuring safety profiles for COVID-19 vaccines. … No unusual or unexpected reporting patterns were detected.”

The authors said 113 deaths were reported to VAERS that month from the COVID-19 vaccines. Incredibly, they never compared that number to historical VAERS averages or trends…just kidding. Of course they compared it, realized it was shockingly higher than the historical average of 12 deaths per month, and decided not to mention it. Never let science interfere with good vaccine marketing.

Bizarrely, the authors actually implied the number of VAERS death reports indicated a safe vaccine, because a lot fewer deaths were reported to VAERS than they would have expected to see coincidentally among people who got the vaccine. Do you think that makes sense? I hope you said “no,” because it does not make sense. You can’t conclude a vaccine is safe because fewer people filed VAERS death reports than were expected to die coincidentally. I can’t even explain it in a way that makes sense—because it’s NONSENSE.

They were going to die anyway…someday

One hypothesis I’ve heard, and which is hinted at by Gee, in the paper above, is that the elderly and infirm, many in long-term care facilities, were the first to be targeted by the COVID-19 vaccine campaign, and they are much more likely to die coincidentally. These coincidental deaths then lead to an increase in suspected vaccine-induced deaths reported to VAERS.  (*cough*)

VAERS data just does not support that hypothesis. First, because all age groups—not just seniors—had a dramatic increase in VAERS death reports from COVID-19 vaccines, as illustrated in the charts below. The red line represents reported COVID-19 vaccine deaths, and the green line represents other vaccines. Across the board, all age groups experienced a dramatic increase in deaths reported to VAERS from the COVID-19 shots—even the under 18 group, which has had very few COVID-19 shots (so far).

Second, the increase in death reports in the 65+ age group is just so massive that coincidental death, no matter how sickly the population, just doesn’t seem like a sufficient and plausible explanation. After all, the elderly and infirm in long-term care facilities are frequent targets of flu shot campaigns.

What does VAERS, and the people who tend to it, do all day?

VAERS is a “hypothesis generating system” that “identifies potential vaccine safety concerns that can be studied in more robust data systems.”  VAERS uses data mining to “…identify disproportional adverse event reporting for vaccines, including COVID-19 vaccine.” VAERS also “identifies… adverse event-vaccine pairs reported at least twice as frequently as expected for a COVID-19 vaccine…” (2) (Pages 12-15)

Given the massive increase in deaths reported to VAERS—not a modest increase, but an enormous, unprecedented increase—it’s unfathomable that VAERS would not detect “disproportional” reporting, thus putting the wheels in motion to study the situation “in more robust data systems.” But there is no indication anything like that has occurred.

According to the CDC:

“VAERS has not detected patterns in cause of death that would indicate a safety problem with COVID-19 vaccines.”

Even as the death reports continue to roll in at an astonishing rate, by the dozens and sometimes hundreds per week, in true Orwellian fashion, the CDC simply updates the Death Count on its website and reiterates:

“VAERS has not detected patterns in cause of death that would indicate a safety problem with COVID-19 vaccines.”

And, of course, the old standby reassurance:

“COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.”

CDC Covid What you Need to Know.JPG

The only way it seems possible that VAERS did not detect any safety concerns, is if VAERS was actually programmed to expect a very high rate of deaths from the COVID-19 vaccines—much higher than the rate of deaths expected for other vaccines. That would explain why VAERS did not detect any “adverse event-vaccine pairs reported at least twice as frequently as expected for a COVID-19 vaccine…”

On the other hand, maybe people are just lying, and VAERS is either doing nothing at all, or something other than what we’re being told; or, it is detecting possible safety concerns with the COVID-19 vaccines like crazy, and it’s being covered up.

But, hey—never let it be said I don’t have an open mind. Maybe one of the many highly paid and respected experts at the CDC will do an analysis—like my humble analysis here, but bigger and fancier with more bells and whistles, because they are experts—and prove the massive increase in VAERS death reports has nothing to do with dangerous COVID-19 vaccines. But I won’t be holding my breath. I think if that could be done, it would have been done already—in triplicate.

13.   Age data was consolidated into 3 uniform groups of Age 0-17, Age 18-64 & Age 65+. The Census Bureau uses a 0-19 age range, and no adjustments were made for that.

14.   The CDC’s estimated rate of flu vaccination for 2010-2020 was used to estimate the rate of all vaccinations.

15.   % vaccinated in each age group for flu was used to estimate the rate of vaccination per the CDC’s vaccine schedule for non-COVID-19 vaccines.

16.   Minimum recommended vaccines for each age group were divided among the years in the age group to estimate yearly vaccine consumption:

17.   Age 0-17: 18 flu shots + 35 other shots = 53 / 18 = 2.94 per year.

18.   Age 18-64: 45 yrs, 45 flu shots + 12 more recommended for everyone (18 more for some) = 45 + 12 = 57 / 45 = 1.24 per year.

19.   Age 65+: 15 yrs: 15 flu shots + 5 more recommended for all (18 more recommended for some) =  15 + 5 = 20 / 15= 1.33 per year.

Well reasearched and well written article!

I suspect that VAERS cherry pick and publish reports of vaccine-related injuries and deaths on their website only if the write-ups can make people think that vaccines might not be the cause of the incident. But even if they report a small percentage of the injuries and deaths caused by vaccines, it’s factually incorrect to say that they are “safe and effective”. Unless it means that it’s SAFE for the vaccine manufacturers to get away with damages they cause to the public, and EFFECTIVE for reducing the world population with vaccines. (Gates talked about it in his TED talk)

They always try to make it as if it’s only a coincidence when people get injured or die right after they’re vaccinated. And yet, these coincidence theorists are glorified on the media as the saviors of people when they’re doing the exact opposite of that.

We are all being told the biggest lie n human existence and where this started to a certain extent many years ago when big pharma destroyed the only strategy to stop these killer viruses on the altar of 100s of billions of continual pharmaceutical profits indefinitely by selling the big lie. Big money equals billions out of the pocket of 90% of the people and where Covid-19 is not either one of these killer viruses to start with and is just a cover up for what is the normal flu if truth be known – no flu deaths this year and that should ring alarm bells to ask WHY?

Rear what happened in 2007 that was part of this Covid-19 strategy to stop all other alternative strategies that had been proven to work, but and this is the BIG but, they hardly needed any virus vaccines (if Covid-19 exists at all) and what happened to one of the most eminent global scientists who put forward the non-drug vaccine strategy who had kept Hong Kong safe and the world for 30 years dealing with the deadly ones (not like Covid)

“Probably the Most Important Keynote Speech ever given for Humanity’s Future Survival as the ‘Unthinkable’ will eventually happen according to Dr. Margaret Chan, D-G of the World Health Organization (WHO) who has said many times, it is only a matter of time not when” –

Then general population can be so gullible. They shop from the middle of the store, drink their fluoride daily, and trust the “officials”.

Thinking for yourself takes effort. Some are just not willing to put in that effort.

This is barely the tip of the iceburg since VAERS on average reports only 1% of the cases and most MDs do not fill in any reports related to adverse effects related to vaccination. The VAERS system as such is a criminal joke. You can thus extrapolate that 99% of the deaths have not been reported. That would give 400 000 people murdered by the CDC-FDA Big Pharma criminals.

I tend to agree with what’s being said here, with the exception of the 99% of death have not been reported. I can see that statistic being true for more minor side effects, but if my wife or child died shortly after taking the jab, I think I’d much more likely report it to VAERs. So, that 99% is likely a lot less when it comes to people dying after the jab. My two cents.

Perhaps you would, Harry, or maybe you’d be too busy in your grief to run to VAERS and begin filling out forms. And many dying obviously can’t report their deaths such as nursing home residents whose deaths following vaccination are just assumed be from being old and/or sick. And those living alone or those with relatives that don’t know of VAERS. Europe has a better tracking system that doesn’t rely solely on volunary reporting and their vaccine deaths are now at 7766 with 118,000 adverse events. There was another interesting post I recently saw that provided compelling evidence that the CDC is throttling back the release of deaths and injury numbers.
