The advisory panel of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) plans on holding an emergency meeting on June 18 to discuss reports of heart inflammation after doses of COVID-19 vaccine.
The meeting comes as the CDC looks into cases of myocarditis, inflammation of the heart muscles, in young people and adolescents who received the shot.
VAERS, the CDC’s primary mechanism in the U.S. for reporting adverse vaccine reactions, historically only reports 1% of the total actual adverse events according to a Harvard study.
This latest number of reported deaths among all age groups following COVID-19 vaccines passed the 5,000 mark, up 759 from the prior week, according to data released recently.
Some experts say, if VAERS only reports approximately 1% of the total adverse events from vaccines, the hundreds of thousands already reported to VAERS by healthcare professionals could possibly be really in the millions.
The newest data show that between Dec. 14, 2020 and May 28, a total of 294,801 total adverse events were reported to VAERS, including 5,165 deaths. There were 25,359 serious injuries reported, up 3,822 compared with the prior week.
Former Pfizer VP, Dr Michael Yeadon has been making his rounds on various outlets, warning about the reported surge in adverse events from the experimental MRNA vaccines. In a recent appearance, Dr Yeadon spoke about these adverse events, saying that ‘it makes no sense’ to vaccinate children with a vaccine that is statistically ’50 times more likely’ to kill the child than the virus itself.
Coronavirus vaccines may be widely available by the fall for U.S. children as young as 6 months, drugmakers say. Some schools may move to mandate the vaccines for children to be able to return to classes without masks.
