The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published data on July 10 that showed 9,049 deaths across all age groups due to COVID vaccines, an increase of more than 2,000 from the previous week. The information comes directly from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
In the United States, VAERS is the principal government-funded mechanism for reporting adverse vaccination responses. As a causal connection must be verified, reports filed to VAERS are investigated further. VAERS publishes every Friday all vaccine injury records received as of a specific date, generally a week before the release date.
Between Dec. 14, 2020, and June 18, 2021, a total of 387,087 total adverse events were recorded to VAERS, including 6,113 deaths, an increase of 120 deaths, according to data released on June 18. There were also 31,240 severe trauma reports. Besides, 316.1 million CCP Virus vaccine doses had been delivered in the United States as of June 18. There were 131 million shots of Moderna’s vaccine, 173 million doses of Pfizer’s vaccine, and 12 million doses of J&J’s CCP Virus vaccine.
According to data released today, 438,441 total adverse events were reported to VAERS between Dec. 14, 2020, and July 2, 2021, including 9,048 deaths, an increase of 2,063 over the last week. During the same time period, 41,015 serious injuries were reported, up 6,950 from the previous week.
In addition, as of July 2, 328.9 million doses of the COVID vaccine have been delivered in the United States. There were 134 million doses of Moderna's vaccine, 182 million doses of Pfizer's vaccine, and 13 million doses of J&J's COVID vaccine.
The overall VAERS data for all age groups this week, from Dec. 14, 2020, to July 2, 2021, shows:
- Cardiac disorders were responsible for 22% of deaths
- 50% of those who died were male, 45% were female and the remaining death reports did not specify whether the deceased was male or female.
- 74.2 was the average age of death.
- As of July 2, 2,678 pregnant women had reported COVID vaccine-related adverse events, with 994 of them reporting miscarriage or premature birth.
- Pfizer vaccines were blamed for 59% of the 4,456 cases of Bell's Palsy reported, while Moderna vaccine was blamed for 39% and J&J for 7%.
- There have been 398 reports of Guillain-Barré Syndrome, with Pfizer being blamed for 47% of cases, Moderna for 40%, and J&J for 19%.
- There were 121,092 reports of anaphylaxis, with Pfizer's vaccine accounting for 46% of cases, Moderna for 46%, and J&J for 7%.
- 8,256 reports of blood clotting disorders. Pfizer received 3,959 reports, Moderna received 2,699 reports, and J&J received 1,552 reports.
- Pfizer is responsible for 1,177 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis, whereas Moderna is responsible for 563 cases and J&J is responsible for 52 cases.
This week’s data for 12- to 17-year-olds show:
- 13,385 total adverse events, with 801 classified as serious and 14 deaths among 12- to 17-year-olds. Suicides accounted for two of the nine deaths.
A 13-year-old child with a previous history of COVID (VAERS I.D. 1431289) died 17 days after due to the Pfizer vaccine after suffering cardiac arrest. A 13-year-old boy (VAERS I.D. 1406840) who died two days after receiving a Pfizer vaccine, three 15-year-olds (VAERS I.D. 1187918, 1382906 and 1242573), four 16-year-olds (VAERS I.D. 1420630, 1426828, 1225942 and 1386841), and three 17-year-olds (VAERS I.D. 1199455, 1388042 and 1420762) were among those who died.
1,934 reports of anaphylaxis among 12- to 17-year-olds, with Pfizer's vaccine accounting for 99 %of cases, Moderna for 1.1%, and J&J for 0.2 % (or four cases).
347 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis (heart inflammation) have been reported, with 343 being linked to Pfizer's vaccine.
Pfizer was responsible for 56 of the 57 reports of blood clotting disorders, while Moderna was responsible for one.
On Thursday, July 8, Pfizer suggested a third dose for optimized protection, especially in light of the dangerous Delta variant, but public health officials say this is not the time to rush it.
Pfizer warned American citizens that the protection from two doses could fade away after six months, hence recommending people to get an additional “booster” jab to achieve “the highest levels of protection.”
Pfizer’s CEO Albert Bourla recommended that the third dose could become an annual deal like the flu shot.
Soon afterward, the FDA and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a statement telling them not to rush for the third dose yet, giving that there has not been adequate data to prove its necessity.
“Americans who have been fully vaccinated do not need a booster shot at this time,” they said in a statement according to CNN. “We are prepared for booster doses if and when the science demonstrates that they are needed.”
The two top federal agencies recommended that it was more important for unvaccinated citizens to get immunized.
