The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released new data showing a total of 927,740 reports of adverse events following COVID vaccines were submitted between Dec. 14, 2020, and Nov. 26, 2021, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
The data included a total of 19,532 reports of deaths — an increase of 283 over the previous week — and 146,720 reports of serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 3,325 compared with the previous week.
Excluding “foreign reports” to VAERS, 672,373 adverse events, including 8,986 deaths and 57,143 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S. between Dec. 14, 2020, and Nov. 26, 2021.
Of the 8,986 U.S. deaths reported as of Nov. 26, 20% occurred within 24 hours of vaccination, 26% occurred within 48 hours of vaccination and 61% occurred in people who experienced an onset of symptoms within 48 hours of being vaccinated.
Every Friday, VAERS publishes vaccine injury reports received as of a specified date. Reports submitted to VAERS require further investigation before a causal relationship can be confirmed. Historically, VAERS has been shown to report only 1% of actual vaccine adverse events.
The most recent death involves a 16-year-old girl from Georgia (VAERS I.D. 1865389) who died reportedly from a heart condition and multi-organ failure two days after receiving Pfizer’s COVID vaccine.
60 reports of anaphylaxis among 12- to 17-year-olds where the reaction was life-threatening, required treatment or resulted in death — with 96% of cases attributed to Pfizer’s vaccine.
In a study published in the American Journal of Cardiology, the researchers found the age-adjusted incidence rate of myopericarditis in men was higher in the vaccinated than the control population, while the incidence rate of myopericarditis in women was the same between the vaccinated and control populations.
They also found an increased incidence of myocardial injury in both men and women in 2021 compared to 2019, although they suggested some of the apparent increase in the diagnosis of pericarditis after vaccination may be attributable to factors unrelated to the COVID vaccines.
