Mainly young people, even children, died suddenly and unexpectedly, often after blood clots in the brain or heart. The non-governmental organization ‘New Zealand Doctors Speaking Out With Science’ calls the situation a “humanitarian crisis.”
RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – The vaccination campaign in New Zealand is turning into a major drama. There is “a shockingly large burden of deaths and injuries following the Covid-19 vaccines.”The situation is getting so out of control that New Zealand doctors have writtenan open letter calling on authorities to investigate the post-vaccination deaths. The doctors have banded together under NZDSOS, short for New Zealand Doctors Speaking Out With Science.
They write that a shocking number of deaths and injuries occurred after the Covid vaccination. In addition, the doctors say certain systems were disabled to conceal the extent of the damage.
Children and young people are dying and suffering. Many healthy elderly people have also died. We are being lied to, the group says. Health Forum New Zealand tracks all deaths and injuries after vaccinations.
The organization’s database includes about 500 deaths. In their open letter, NZDSOS doctors give the (fictitious) names of about a third of all victims. The actual names are known to the police.
These are mainly young people, even children, who died suddenly and unexpectedly, often after blood clots in the brain or heart. NZDSOS calls it a “humanitarian crisis.” “For God’s sake, let’s make sure our MPs and police put an end to this now!”
Eddie (13) from Wellington died in his sleep a few days after vaccination, Joanna (15) collapsed in her bathroom and died on the way to the hospital, Timothy (33) died of a heart attack two days after vaccination, Annabelle (38) died in September 2021 two hours after her second vaccination.
The hospital confirmed that she had died from the vaccination but forced her family to sign a vow of silence.
Maggie (47) fell ill after receiving the booster vaccination, which the coroner said she should not have received at all because she was immunocompromised. Mark (52) died suddenly in his sleep after his second injection.
Alyss (31) was urged by her family doctor to have the injection but suffered a brain hemorrhage 10 days later and died. Bodybuilder Alex (25) died in his sleep after receiving his first vaccination.
Satya from Manurewa died in her sleep after receiving the vaccine. Ana (43), also from Manurewa, died in her sleep shortly after receiving her booster. Lefty (23) suffered a fatal stroke in his sleep after his second shot.
Timothy, a healthy 60-year-old, died of a heart attack three hours after his first shot. And there are hundreds more such cases.
Defending the Republic, a Texas-based non-profit filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Food and Drug Administration for refusing to turn over records related to the approval of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccines.
The group filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking the production of records relating to the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) internal review process of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine marketed as “Spikevax.” Given that the forces impacting the FDA’s decision to authorize the vaccine could have influenced Americans’ decision on whether or not to get vaccinated against COVID-19, Defending the Republic requested expedited processing of relevant records.
“Please provide all data and information submitted by Moderna relating to the FDA review and approval of Spikevax. This includes, but is not limited to, all safety and effectiveness data and information; all data and information in the biological product file; and all ingredients,” outlined the initial FOIA request.
On February 9th, less than a week after the initial FOIA was filed, the FDA refused the request for expedited processing, prompting Defending the Republic to appeal the decision.
“The FDA declined the appeal, leaving Defending the Republic with no choice but to file this action seeking a court order requiring the FDA produce the requested records on an expedited schedule— just as those who obtained a court order for the expedited production of records relating to the FDA approved Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine,” explains a complaint filed by Defending the Republic.
Defending the Republic was especially interested in better understanding the review process for Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine, as data has shown its risk were not adequately explained to those receiving it and data surrounding its efficacy remains obscured. As Defending the Republic explains:
Despite the FDA’s promises, a closer inspection of the Spikevax approval reveal there may be glaring issues in the approval process. The Spikevax package insert concedes “[a]vailable data on SPIKEVAX administered to pregnant women are insufficient to inform vaccine-associated risks in pregnancy.” And while the FDA publicly pronounced that the “data demonstrated that Spikevax was 93% effective in preventing COVID-19,” the Spikevax fact sheet for recipients and caregivers provides important context omitted by the public officials: “The [Spikevax] duration of protection against COVID19 is currently unknown.
The lawsuit comes amidst several National Pulse exposés revealing how lobbyists from pharmaceutical companies including Moderna have entrenched themselves within Washington, D.C.
Do You Have Shingles or HIV?
Pfizer & Friends Just Happen to Have the Solution for You
Greg Hunter: “So they are marketing to people with diseases that they knowingly caused?”
Dr. Ryan Cole: “In my opinion, yes.”
– A Moderna study confirms an uptick in shingles. What do these companies do? Create a shingles solution.
– Pfizer jab gets emergency use authorization for children. What do they do? Buy a heart treatment company.
“They knew in advance all these harms. You can look back at years of mRNA trials and animals and the reason we haven’t done this on a large scale before is because they never worked.
There were too many adverse effects over time to where it wasn’t safe enough to bring forward to humanity.”
MONKEYPOX FALSE FLAG
>Biden Crime Family to reap massive profits from monkeypox vaccines
As you might expect, the current White House occupant is about to rake in boatloads of cash from the new monkeypox “vaccines” that are currently under development.
The Penn Biden Center, a globalist think tank at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital, is receiving a flood of cash, we now know, to create the next wave of plandemic injections at warp speed. And as its name suggests, the Penn Biden Center is directly tied to the Biden Crime Family.
Patrick Howley told Owen Shroyer during a recent live transmission of “War Room” that the pharmaceutical-industrial complex is greasing the skids for the Biden Crime Family to profit heavily from the monkeypox false flag event that is now unfolding.
“The University of Pennsylvania, which hosts Joe Biden’s think tank the Penn Biden Center and paid Joe Biden in the lead-up to his run for president, got paid by the company Bavarian Nordic to perform a clinical trial on the Bavarian Nordic monkeypox vaccine,” stated an article by Howley that was published by National File.
“Joe Biden’s host university profited from helping Bavarian Nordic develop the MVA-BN monkeypox vaccine.”
Monkeypox is a coverup (distraction?) for covid “vaccine” adverse events, including AIDS
(Natural News) The media’s new obsession over monkeypox could be a planned diversion away from the many adverse effects that are now appearing in people who took Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines.”
Suddenly the monkey disease is said to be spreading among the LGBT community, and the same type of fearmongering that appeared at the start of the Fauci Flu plandemic is once again being deployed by the government and the media. (Related: Bill Gates and other deep state criminals held a monkeypox “simulation” event last year that predicted the current outbreaks.)
Even though this is hardly the first time that monkeypox has jumped ship from animals to humans, it is all of a sudden a major deal, we are told. Could it be that this is all a coverup or distraction to keep people fixated on the next scare rather than all the health damage being caused by Operation Warp Speed injections?
“The new evolving hysteria surrounding the alleged emergence of ‘monkeypox’ in Western nations is not what it appears to be,” reports Exposé News (UK). “We are not witnessing the monkeypox virus run rampant across first world countries for the first time ever.”
“Instead, we are witnessing the latest attempt to advance Draconian biosecurity policies through a monumental coverup of the devastating damage done to the immune systems of people who have had the Covid-19 vaccine. Damage so severe that it can be likened to Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome.”
Will monkeypox become the next global plandemic?
It turns out that monkeypox is really not that big of a deal. It is much less contagious than coronaviruses and not nearly as big of a threat as smallpox, its biological relative.
Chances are that very few people will actually catch it, save for those involved in homosexual sexual activity. So why all the ballyhoo about monkeypox – and why now specifically?
While monkeypox has mostly been restricted to Africa throughout its history of circulation, it did escape the continent and arrive in the United States for the first time in 2003. Since then, there have been a few minor outbreaks.
Now we are being told that monkeypox is spreading like wildfire at LGBT festivals in Europe, and the same type of rhetoric used in early 2020 to scare the world about covid is once again being used to scare the world about monkeypox.
“The main points to take away from this are that the alleged monkeypox disease is extremely rare, has rarely been seen outside of Africa, and has never been recorded in multiple countries outside of Africa at the same time,” the Exposé explains.
“So with that being the case, do you not find it strange that we are suddenly being told that cases of monkeypox are now being recorded in the USA, Canada, the UK, Australia, Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy and Germany, all at the same time?”
A map of all the places where monkeypox is suddenly an issue reveals that only those areas of the world where Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) jabs were introduced are reporting “cases” of it. Could it all be a big distraction from the elephant in the room known as Fauci Flu shot adverse events?
“… evidence suggests we’re not witnessing an outbreak of monkeypox across first-world countries at all,” reports indicate.
“Instead, we’re witnessing the consequences of the damage that has been caused to immune systems by the Covid-19 injections in the very same first-world countries, and authorities are rushing to cover it up.”
The longer time goes on, the more we are going to witness vaccine-induced AIDS (VAIDS) manifest in the “fully vaccinated.” With that said, monkeypox hysteria will likely continue until they move on to the next distraction.
The latest official Covid-19 figures from the Government of Canada are truly terrifying. They show that the double vaccinated population across Canada have now lost on average 74% of their immune system capability, and the triple vaccinated population across Canada have now lost on average 73% of their immune system capability compared to the natural immune system of unvaccinated people.
So much damage has now been done that the figures show the double vaccinated population are on average 3.8 times more likely to be infected with Covid-19 and 3.3 times more likely to die of Covid-19 than the unvaccinated population.
But it’s even worse for the triple vaccinated population in terms of their risk of death. The official figures show that they are on average 3.7 times more likely to be infected with Covid-19 but 5.1 times more likely to die of Covid-19 than the unvaccinated population.
These figures therefore suggest that both the double and triple vaccinated population in Canada have now had so much damage caused to their immune systems by the Covid-19 injections that they have now developed Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome.
The Canadian Covid-19 figures are produced by the Government of Canada (see here).
Their latest data is available as a downloadable pdf here.
The Government of Canada is publishing its official Covid-19 data in a way that makes it appear Canada is very much experiencing a ‘Pandemic of the Unvaccinated’, and that the Covid-19 vaccines are clearly effective. But this data is a fraud.
Page 20 onwards of the downloadable pdf contains data on Covid-19 cases, hospitalisations and deaths from the very start of the Covid-19 vaccination campaign in Canada on 14th Dec 20 all the way through to 27th Feb 22.
And it is this date parameter that makes the presented data extremely misleading, because there was a huge spike in Covid-19 cases, hospitalisations and deaths in January 2021 when just 0.3% of Canada were considered fully vaccinated.
But thanks to the gift of the ‘WayBackMachine’, we can look at previous Government of Canada Covid-19 Daily Epidemiology Update’ reports to deduce who is actually accounting for the majority of these deaths, hospitalisations and cases.
Here are the tables from the January 30th, February 6th, February 13th, February 20th, and February 27th, Government of Canada Covid-19 Daily Epidemiology Update’ reports showing the number of cases, hospitalisations and deaths by vaccination status from as far back as 14th December 2020, as well as the total population sizes of each vaccine group at the time of each report –
Now all we have to do is carry out simple subtraction to deduce who accounted for the majority of Covid-19 cases and when. The following chart shows the total number of Covid-19 cases per week by vaccination status across Canada between 31st Jan 22 and 27th Feb 22 –
Therefore, based on the figures provided by the Government of Canada in the tables above, here is a chart showing the population size by vaccination status across Canada each week between 31st Jan and 27th Feb 22 –
The unvaccinated population size is deduced by simply subtracting the total population size of those who’ve received at least one dose of Covid-19 Vaccine in Canada from the overall population size of 38.01 million. The double vaccinated population size is simply deduced by subtracting the triple vaccinated population size from the total population size of those who’ve received at least two doses in Canada.
As you can see the largest population size is actually the unvaccinated population, falling from 13.31 million in the week ending 6th Feb to 13.11 million in the week ending 27th Feb. Whereas the triple vaccinated population has increased from 10.9 million in the week ending 6th Feb to 12.9 million in the week ending 27th Feb.
So why on earth are there so many more cases among the double vaccinated and triple vaccinated population when –
a) They have a smaller population size than the unvaccinated? &
b) They have had a vaccine that allegedly reduces their risk of contracting Covid-19?
The answer is obvious. It’s because the Covid-19 vaccines damage the immune system and make recipients more likely to contract Covid-19.
The following chart shows the Covid-19 case-rate per 100,000 individuals by vaccination status across Canada per week between 31st Jan and 27th Feb 22 –
The case-rate is deduced by first dividing the total population size of each vaccine group by 100,000. The number of cases in each vaccine group is then divided by the answer to the previous equation to calculate the case-rate.
e.g. – 13.31 million / 100,000 = 133.1 6,932 cases / 133.1 = 52.08 cases per 100,000 individuals
As you can see the case rate has been astronomically higher among both the double and triple vaccinated since at least the 31st Jan 22. Now that we know the case-rates we can use Pfizer’s vaccine effectiveness formula to work out the real world Covid-19 vaccine effectiveness among both the double vaccinated and triple vaccinated populations.
That formula is –
Unvaccinated Case Rate – Vaccinated Case Rate / Unvaccinated Case Rate x 100 = Vaccine Effectiveness %
The following chart shows the real-world Covid-19 vaccine effectiveness across Canada among the double vaccinated and triple vaccinated population based on the case-rates above-
In the week ending 6th Feb the real-world vaccine effectiveness among the double vaccinated was an absolutely shocking minus-221.16%. But by the week ending 27th Feb this had fallen even further to minus 276.16%.
But the triple vaccinated population, whilst faring ever so slightly better, have seen a much steeper decline. In the week ending 6th Feb the real world vaccinated effectiveness among the triple vaccinated was still a shocking minus minus-197.79%. But by the week ending 27th Feb this had fallen to minus-269.87%.
This means that on average, the double vaccinated population are 3.8 times more likely to contract Covid-19 than the unvaccinated, and the triple vaccinated population are 3.7 times more likely to contract Covid-19 than the unvaccinated.
But vaccine effectiveness isn’t really a measure of a vaccine, it is a measure of a vaccine recipients immune system performance compared to the immune system performance of an unvaccinated person.
The Covid-19 vaccine is supposed to train your immune system to recognise the spike protein of the original strain of the Covid-19 virus. It does this by instructing your cells to produce the spike protein, then your immune system produces antibodies and remembers to use them later if you encounter the spike part of the Covid-19 virus again.
But the vaccine doesn’t hang around after it’s done the initial training, it leaves your immune system to take care of the rest. So when the authorities state that the effectiveness of the vaccines weaken over time, what they really mean is that the performance of your immune system weakens over time.
The problem we’re seeing here is that the immune system isn’t returning to its original and natural state. If it was then the outcomes of infection with Covid-19 would be similar to the outcomes among the not-vaccinated population.
Instead, it continues to decline at a rate that means the not-vaccinated population have a better performing immune system, so this means the Covid-19 injections are decimating the immune systems of the fully vaccinated.
The following chart shows the double vaccinated and triple vaccinated immune system performance across Canada vs the natural immune system performance of the unvaccinated population –
The immune system performance is calculated by using a slightly different calculation to the one used to equate vaccine effectiveness, which is as follows –
Unvaccinated case rate – Vaccinated case rate / LARGEST OF EITHER unvaccinated case rate OR vaccinated case rate X 100 = Immune System Performance % e.g. – Triple Vaccinated 21st Feb to 27th Feb = 22.83 – 84.44 / 84.44 x 100 = -72.96%
These figures show that the average double vaccinated Canadian has lost 73.42% of their immune system capability, meaning they are down to the last 26.58% of their immune system for fighting certain classes of viruses and certain cancers etc.
But unfortunately, the third jab hasn’t improved things because these figures show the average triple vaccinated Canadian has lost 72.96% of their immune system capability, meaning they are down to the last 27.04% of their immune system for fighting certain classes of viruses and certain cancers etc.
However, the figures provided by the Government of Canada are not separated by age-group, instead they provide overall figures for the entire population. And as we know, vaccine effectiveness (which is really immune system performance), is declining by the week.
Therefore, it’s perfectly plausible to assume that those who received the vaccine first will now be suffering much more severe immune system degradation than those who have only just received their second or third jab. And based on the following official figures on death, we propose that many double and triple vaccinated Canadian’s have surpassed the minus-90% to minus-100% immune system performance barrier, meaning they have essentially developed some new form of Covid-19 vaccine induced Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.
The following chart shows the total number of Covid-19 deaths per week by vaccination status across Canada between 31st Jan 22 and 27th Feb 22 –
We have had to group the last two weeks together because the 27th Feb report showed less deaths in all vaccination groups than the 20th Feb report, with the exception of triple vaccinated who saw an increase. So we deduced the number of deaths between the 14th Feb report and 27th Feb report.
As you can see, just like with cases there have been far more deaths among both the double and triple vaccinated, but special attention should be paid to the final two weeks.
The following chart shows the population size by vaccination status across Canada between 31st Jan and 27th Feb 22 –
The following chart shows the Covid-19 death-rate per 100,000 individuals by vaccination status across Canada per week between 31st Jan and 27th Feb 22 based on the death figures and population size figures above –
As you cans see the death rate has been lowest among the unvaccinated since at least 31st Jan 22, and highest among the triple vaccinated population. But the death rates shown for 14th Feb to 27th Feb are deeply troubling.
The following chart shows the real-world Covid-19 vaccine effectiveness against death across Canada among the double vaccinated and triple vaccinated population based on the death-rates above-
In the week ending 6th Feb the real-world vaccine effectiveness among the double vaccinated was a troubling minus-10.79%. But by the week ending 27thFeb this had fallen to an absolutely shocking minus-228.52%.
But things are far worse for the triple vaccinated. In the week ending 6th Feb the real-world vaccine effectiveness among the triple vaccinated was a disturbing minus-57.25%. But by the week ending 27thFeb this had fallen to devastating minus-414.49%.
This means that on average, the double vaccinated population are 3.3 times more likely to die ofCovid-19 than the unvaccinated, but the triple vaccinated population are a shocking 5.1 times more likely to die of Covid-19 than the unvaccinated.
But don’t forget vaccine effectiveness isn’t really a measure of a vaccine, it is a measure of a vaccine recipients immune system performance compared to the immune system performance of an unvaccinated person.
The following chart shows the double vaccinated and triple vaccinated immune system performance against death across Canada vs the natural immune system performance of the unvaccinated population –
Double vaccinated individuals across Canada had an immune system performance of minus-69.56% by the 27th Feb 22, but triple vaccinated individuals across Canada had an immune system performance of minus-80.56%. This is what Covid-19 vaccination has done to the people of Canada.
AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) is the name used to describe a number of potentially life-threatening infections and illnesses that happen when your immune system has been severely damaged.
People with acquired immune deficiency syndrome are at an increased risk for developing certain cancers and for infections that usually occur only in individuals with a weak immune system.
Unfortunately, official Government of Canada data indicates that a large proportion of the double vaccinated and triple vaccinated population have now developed Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, (AIDS) or a novel condition with similar attributes that can only be described as Covid-19 Vaccine Induced Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (VAIDS).
A 33-fold spike has been witnessed in the occurrence of a blood clot in the lung, which can be fatal, in 30 days after getting infected with coronavirus, found a new study.
Another five-fold rise in the risk of getting deep vein thrombosis (DVT) has been linked with contracting Covid, it also said.
The findings of the research were published in the British Medical Journal on Thursday.
The study was carried out by Anne-Marie Fors Connolly of Umeå University in Sweden and her colleagues. The team looked to check the risk of DVT, pulmonary embolism, which is a blood clot in the lung, and other types of bleeding in over one million people, who were also the confirmed cases of Covid.
They also found a two-fold hike in the risk of bleeding after 30 days of the infection.
After becoming infected with coronavirus, patients remain at heightened risk of pulmonary embolism for six months. For bleeding and DVT, the risk is for two and three months, respectively.
“Pulmonary embolism can be fatal, so it is important to be aware [of this risk]. If you suddenly find yourself short of breath, and it doesn’t pass, [and] you’ve been infected with the coronavirus, then it might be an idea to seek help, because we find this increased risk for up to six months,” Connolly told the Guardian.
Despite the massive 300% rise in myocarditis, the Welsh government are still rolling out vaccines for children.
The first minister Mark Drakeford knows of the vaccine injuries and deaths but still rolls out these death shots. Mr Drakeford is therefore culpable in the murder of innocent children in wales and guilty of crimes against humanity. We therefore must protect the children and bring charges against Drakeford. The link below is a letter to parents from a primary school who will also be served with a liability letter.
A new peer-reviewed study shows more than two-thirds of adolescents with COVID-19 vaccine-related myopericarditis had persistent heart abnormalities months after their initial diagnosis, raising concerns for potential long-term effects and contradicting claims by health officials that the condition is “mild.”
A new peer-reviewed study shows more than two-thirds of adolescents with COVID-19 vaccine-related myopericarditis had persistent heart abnormalities months after their initial diagnosis, raising concerns for potential long-term effects.
The findings, published March 25 in the Journal of Pediatrics, challenge the position of U.S. health agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which claim heart inflammation associated with the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines is “mild.”
Researchers at Seattle Children’s Hospital reviewed cases of patients younger than 18 years old who presented to the hospital with chest pain and an elevated serum troponin level between April 1, 2021, and Jan. 7, 2022, within one week of receiving a second dose of Pfizer’s vaccine.
While 35 patients fit the criteria, 19 were excluded for various reasons. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the remaining 16 patients was performed three to eight months after they were first examined. The MRIs showed 11 had persistent late gadolinium enhancement(LGE), although levels were lower than in previous months.
According to the study, “The presence of LGE is an indicator of cardiac injury and fibrosis and has been strongly associated with worse prognosis in patients with classical acute myocarditis.”
In a meta-analysis of eight studies, LGE was found to be a predictor of all-cause death, cardiovascular death, cardiac transplant, rehospitalization, recurrent acute myocarditis and requirement for mechanical circulatory support.
Similarly, an 11-study meta-analysis found the “presence and extent of LGE to be a significant predictor of adverse cardiac outcomes.”
Researchers said that while symptoms “were transient and most patients appeared to respond to treatment,” the analysis showed a “persistence of abnormal findings.”
The results “rais[e] concerns for potential longer-term effects,” researchers wrote, adding that they plan to repeat imaging at one year after the vaccine to assess whether abnormalities have resolved.
“The paper provides more evidence that myocarditis in adolescents that result from COVID-19 vaccines is very serious,” said Dr. Madhava Setty, senior science editor for The Defender.
“All patients had significantly elevated serum troponin levels indicative of heart damage. And LGE, which is indicative of poor outcome, was present in more than two-thirds of the kids.”
The study stated, “All patients had elevated serum troponin levels (median 9.15 ng/mL, range 0.65-18.5, normal < 0.05 ng/mL).”
“These young patients had a median troponin level of 9.15 — more than 20 times greater than the levels found in people suffering heart attacks,” Setty said.
Commenting on the study, Dr. Marty Makary, surgeon and public policy researcher at Johns Hopkins University, tweeted “CDC has a civic duty to rigorously study the long-term effects of vaccine-induced myocarditis.”
CDC has a civic duty to do rigorously study the long-term effects of vaccine-induced myocarditis. New follow-up study 3-8 months after myocarditis shows the MRI heart abnormality of late gadolinium enhancement seen in 63% of children. Merits further study. https://t.co/klPVsnqrkc
Dr. Anish Koka, a cardiologist, told The Epoch Times the study suggests 60% to 70% of teenagers who get myocarditis from a COVID vaccine may be left with a scar on their heart.
“Certainly, children who had chest pain severe enough to merit seeking medical attention need to at least make sure they get a follow-up MRI,” Koka said, adding that the findings “should have clear implications for the discussion around vaccines, especially for high-risk male teenagers … and definitely for vaccine mandates.”
Myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart, is a severe and life-shortening disease. It was virtually unknown in young people until it became a recognized side effect of mRNA COVID vaccines, especially in boys and young men.
Pericarditis is inflammation of the pericardium, a sac-like structure with two layers of tissue that surrounds the heart to hold it in place and help it work.
According to the CDC, the most at-risk group is 16- and 17-year-old males, who have reported rates of 69 per million after the second dose of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine, although that number is likely underreported.
The CDC presentation also reported that in three-month follow-up evaluations, less than one-third of adolescents 12 to 17 who suffered vaccine-induced myocarditis (reported in Vaccine Safety DataLink) had fully recovered.
The 69-per-million rate the CDC uses to determine the incidence of myocarditis in 16- and 17-year-olds came from the agency’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) — a U.S. government-run database that receives reports of vaccine adverse events.
One of the biggest limitations of passive surveillance systems, like VAERS, is that the system “receives reports for only a small fraction of adverse events,” according to the Department of Health and Human Services website.
This incidence matches nearly exactly with findings from a study that used the Vaccine Safety DataLink system, which showed 37.7 12- to 17-year-olds per 100,000 suffered myo/pericarditis after their second vaccine dose.
This indicates an incidence rate that is almost six times higher than the 69-per-million rate reported by the CDC.
In a preprint study from Kaiser Permanente, the incidence of myocarditis in 18- to 24-year-old males post-vaccination was even higher — at 537 per million, or 7.7 times higher than the statistics reported by the CDC.
No such thing as ‘mild’ heart damage
A paper published Jan. 14 in Circulation summarized the clinical course of 139 young patients between the ages of 12 and 20 who were hospitalized for myocarditis following COVID vaccination.
Of those patients, 19% were taken into intensive care, two required infusions of potent intravenous drugs used to raise critically low blood pressure and every patient had an elevated troponin level.
Troponin is an enzyme specific to cardiac myocytes. Levels above 0.4 ng/ml are strongly suggestive of heart damage.
The paper concluded, “Most cases of suspected COVID-19 vaccine myocarditis occurring in persons <21 years have a mild clinical course with rapid resolution of symptoms.”
“We suppose [a ‘mild clinical course] refers to the 81% who did not go to the ICU or the fact that none died or required ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation, a desperate means to keep the body oxygenated when a patient’s heart or lungs have completely failed),” wrote Setty and Josh Mitteldorf, Ph.D., a theoretical physicist, in an articlecritiquing the Circulation paper.
“When does a ‘mild clinical course’ require hospitalization for a two-day median length of stay?” they asked. “How does anyone know if symptoms rapidly resolve?”
“We don’t know what it will do to young boys in the long term, especially since every patient had some damage to their heart as evidenced by significantly abnormal troponin levels,” Setty and Mitteldorf wrote. “And we don’t fully understand the mechanism by which the vaccines cause myocarditis.”
