Since the FDA hastily approved the various coronavirus vaccines in 2020, the agency has recorded 1.3 million “adverse effects” of all sorts, but despite that, it continues to waive off concerns about the safety of the vaccines.
The FDA has amassed records of 1.3 million reports of ailments attributed to the vaccine, medical issues that range from mild to severe, and includes 29,000 deaths.
Patients have died from blood clots to the brain, heart inflammation, and other issues, while many others experienced swelling, fevers, and other adverse reactions to the vaccines and boosters.
Real Clear Investigations notes that these are not “conspiracy theories.”
These reports are not anecdotes from “anti-vaxxers” on the dark web. They come from the federal government’s open-source log, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. It allows anyone to go online and report a bad reaction that could be linked to any vaccine, including those for COVID-19. (RealClearInvestigations has linked above to VAERS reports posted at Openvaers.com, an independently run and easier to navigate database that copies reports verbatim from the CDC’s less user-friendly “WONDER” system.)
While the reports are unfiltered and unexamined, the idea is that such public input will allow researchers to identify potential problems. But the sheer number of reports, and their specificity, have the attention of concerned scientists and even some politicians like Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, who has invited people harmed by vaccines to testify before Congress and advocates compensation for them.
Johnson’s office said he has been admonishing the health authorities over the VAERS reports for a year. “The senator believes the CDC and FDA need to take their own adverse event early warning system seriously and be transparent with the American people,” it said in a statement. “To date, they have not been.”
VAERS was created in the late 1980s as an outgrowth of a congressional mandate to create a system for compensating vaccine victims and their families. In 2015, the CDC said the average number of annual reports was roughly 30,000. In 2021, there were nearly 1 million. Given the large increase during a politically charged pandemic, the usefulness of VAERS is the subject of great debate even among scientists.
Real Clear Investigations has much, much more, of course. But the point is, there is a growing body of research linking these vaccines to serious medical issues that are caused by the vaccines.
Yet, Biden’s FDA continues to completely ignore any possible issues and continues to claim that everything is perfectly OK.
We should be allowed to ask why?Commentary
