    55 People Died in US After Receiving COVID-19 Vaccines: Reporting System
    BY ZACHARY STIEBER

    Fifty-five people in the United States have died after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, according to reports submitted to a federal system.

    Deaths have occurred among people receiving both the Moderna and the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines, according to the reports.

    The reporting system, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), is a federal database. The system is passive, meaning reports aren’t automatically collected and must be filed. VAERS reports can be filed by anyone, including health care providers, patients, or family members.

    VAERS reports “often lack details and sometimes can have information that contains errors,” according to the reporting system’s website. Still, reports on VAERS represent “only a small fraction of actual adverse events,” the site states, though underreporting is believed to be less common for serious events.

    In some cases, patients died within days of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.

    One man, a 66-year-old senior home resident in Colorado, was sleepy and stayed in bed a day after getting Moderna’s vaccine. Early the next morning, on Christmas Day, the resident “was observed in bed lying still, pale, eyes half open and foam coming from mouth and unresponsive,” the VAERS report states. “He was not breathing and with no pulse.”

    In another case, a 93-year-old South Dakota man was injected with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on Jan. 4 around 11 a.m. About two hours later, he said he was tired and couldn’t continue with the physical therapy he was doing any longer. He was taken back to his room, where he said his legs felt heavy. Soon after, he stopped breathing. A nurse declared a do-not-resuscitate order.

    Moderna and Pfizer didn’t respond to requests for comment. Abigail Capobianco, a spokeswoman for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), told The Epoch Times via email, “Any reports of death following the administration of vaccines are promptly and rigorously investigated jointly by FDA” and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    Officials at the agencies work with health care providers to obtain medical histories and clinical follow-up information and conduct a clinical case review, she said, adding, “It is important to note that it is generally not possible to find out from VAERS data if a vaccine caused an adverse event.”

    Health officials on the VAERS website caution that a report to the system doesn’t prove a vaccine caused the adverse event, and that no proof that the event was caused by the vaccine is required in order for the system to accept the report.

    In addition to the deaths, people have reported 96 life-threatening events following COVID-19 vaccinations, as well as 24 permanent disabilities, 225 hospitalizations, and 1,388 emergency room visits.

    COVID-19 is the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.

    Neither the CDC nor the FDA has a central database of reported adverse events. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said on Jan. 6 that severe allergic reactions to COVID-19 vaccines were happening at a rate of 11.1 per million vaccinations, compared to the rate of 1.3 per 1 million flu shots.

    As of Jan. 15, 10.5 million Americans have received a COVID-19 vaccine. Federal health officials have said that adverse events are being investigated but that the vaccines are still safe to get.

    “These are safe and effective vaccines. We have good data to show that,” Messonnier said.

    One death following a vaccination attracted attention earlier this week. Gregory Michael, a 56-year-old medical worker at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami, Florida, was injected on Dec. 18, 2020. Sixteen days later, he died.

    Michael’s wife Heidi Neckelmann said on Facebook that her husband was “very healthy” before being vaccinated. She said he was admitted to an intensive care unit with a diagnosis of acute idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, a blood disorder, caused by a reaction to the vaccine. He eventually passed away.

    “He was a pro-vaccine advocate, that is why he got it himself,” Neckelmann wrote. “I believe that people should be aware that side effects can happen, that it is not good for everyone and in this case destroyed a beautiful life, a perfect family, and has affected so many people in the community. Do not let his death be in vain, please save more lives by making this information news.”

    Pfizer told news outlets in a statement that no evidence currently shows a link between the death and its vaccine.

    “Pfizer and BioNTech are aware of the death of a health care professional 16 days after receiving a first dose of BNT162b2,” Pfizer said in a statement. “It is a highly unusual clinical case of severe thrombocytopenia, a condition that decreases the body’s ability to clot blood and stop internal bleeding.”

    “We are actively investigating this case, but we don’t believe at this time that there is any direct connection to the vaccine,” the company added. “There have been no related safety signals identified in our clinical trials, the post-marketing experience thus far, or with the mRNA vaccine platform. To date, millions of people have been vaccinated and we are closely monitoring all adverse events in individuals receiving our vaccine. It is important to note that serious adverse events, including deaths that are unrelated to the vaccine, are unfortunately likely to occur at a similar rate as they would in the general population.”

    A Pfizer spokesperson told The Epoch Times via email earlier this month that the company “closely monitor all reports following vaccination.” Moderna hasn’t responded to requests for comment on its involvement in monitoring serious adverse events in people who get its vaccine.

    The updated VAERS data came after Norway changed its COVID-19 vaccination guide to direct officials not to give “very frail” people one of the vaccines, citing 13 deaths among people who were vaccinated.

    Is that a normal number of deaths for a vaccine/flu shot? I don’t want one.

    Not exactly a trustworthy source, but the deaths in Norway may be alarming. I wonder if it is a mistake to start with the elderly population.

    Biden laid out the preferred formula for administering the vaccine. Essentially, the non-white minorities will receive it first (Tuskegee) and then white Democrats.

    So the 55 deaths is a lie?
    Please provide trustworthy information and not just your opinion to dissuade.
    Try MSM.

    Well, they were saying all deaths were corvid deaths, so now the official story will be saying no deaths are from getting their vaccine, they died of anything but that.

    If covid wont kill you, then the vaccine will. Everyone dies of covid. There are no other deaths, even accidents are covid involved.

    I don't know. I doubt they would make up 55 deaths. But I would want more information (55 deaths is very few, unless they were young, otherwise healthy guys with no underlying medical conditions).

    The source has a tendency to spin (just like MSNBC...just in an opposite direction).

    OK so I take my wife to her oncologist on Thursday and they say she should get on the list ASAP. My wife researches giving this vaccination to cancer patients and finds out that the chemotherapy they take makes the vaccine inert. All I can say is watch out as there is allot of false information being passed around.

    Opinion again, just like mine in that MSM is very unreliable considering its ownership:

    Traditional media giants are racing to consolidate in the face of tech industry disruption. Can they retain control of the medium and the message?

    Welcome to Hollywood, AT&T. The company that most people associate with mobile phones entered show business in June when a U.S. District Court judge approved its acquisition of Time Warner, giving AT&T command of Warner Bros., HBO, and Turner. (Stay tuned: The Justice Department filed an appeal in July.) A Disney acquisition of 21st Century Fox may follow—that is, if Comcast doesn’t get there first. What prompted this wave of megamergers? Silicon Valley, of course. Netflix has become an entertainment powerhouse; Amazon isn’t far behind. Meanwhile Apple, Facebook, and Google are all dipping their toes in the content pool. Consolidation gives traditional mass media a chance to stave off tech domination. Here’s a look at who controls what—for now.

    I do not trust the media....period. This includes your Falun Gong paper. I dismiss news sources that have an agenda either way. Too many choose which ever one shares their agenda and call it "news".

    Ah, you are also into The Gong Show.

    They are a PERSECUTED religion.
    I guess they would have no insight into Red Chinese tactics in that regard.
    Hey, That is my opinion.

    This is how you soldier in the kingdom?
    By disparaging others' political opinions yet feel free to spread your own?

    As for me, I don’t have a church that discusses politics. They tend to foment arguments and preach their own agendas... so let me ask you if your church does politics?

    NeverTrumpers are a minority like cannibals and therefore they go to the front of Biden’s line.
