‘Data released Sept. 17 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed that between Dec. 14, 2020 and Sept. 10, 2021, a total of 701,561 adverse events following COVID vaccines were reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). The data included a total of 14,925 reports of deaths — an increase of 419 over the previous week.
Of the 6,756 U.S. deaths reported as of Sept. 10, 12% occurred within 24 hours of vaccination, 17% occurred within 48 hours of vaccination and 31% occurred in people who experienced an onset of symptoms within 48 hours of being vaccinated.
In the U.S., 378.2 million COVID vaccine doses had been administered as of Sept. 10. This includes: 216 million doses of Pfizer, 148 million doses of Moderna and 15 million doses of Johnson & Johnson (J&J).
The data come directly from reports submitted to VAERS, the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.
Every Friday, VAERS makes public all vaccine injury reports received as of a specified date, usually about a week prior to the release date. Reports submitted to VAERS require further investigation before a causal relationship can be confirmed.
This week’s U.S. data for 12- to 17-year-olds show:
The most recent deaths involve one report of two patients [VAERS I.D. 1655100] who died after their second dose of Pfizer, including a 13-year-old female.
Other recent reported deaths include a 15-year-old boy (VAERS I.D. 1498080) who previously had COVID, was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy in May 2021 and died four days after receiving his second dose of Pfizer’s vaccine on June 18, when he collapsed on the soccer field and went into ventricular tachycardia; and a 13-year-old girl (VAERS I.D. 1505250) who died after suffering a heart condition after receiving her first dose of Pfizer.
FDA panel overwhelmingly rejects Pfizer boosters for healthy people 16 to 65 years old
On Sept. 17, a panel of scientific advisors to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) voted 16 to 2 against recommending a third shot of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine for healthy people 16 and older, but voted unanimously in favor of recommending the booster shot for the immunocompromised and all people 65 or older.
The vote came after a sharp debate in which many of the panel’s independent experts, including infectious disease doctors and statisticians, challenged whether the data justified a broad rollout of extra shots when the vaccines appear to still offer robust protection against severe COVID-19 disease and hospitalization, at least in the U.S.
Officials at the FDA previously had expressed skepticism about the need for Pfizer COVID vaccine booster shots in a 23-page document released Sept. 16, prior to the meeting, on the agency’s website.
The report analyzed data submitted by Pfizer and BioNTech as part of the drugmakers’ request for authorization for their vaccine to be given as a booster shot in people 16 years and older. FDA officials said, based on their analysis of data submitted by Pfizer and BioNTech, they could not yet take a stance on whether to recommend COVID boosters for the general public.
16-year-old Sara Green “wants life back” after developing neurological problems following Pfizer vaccine
Sarah Green was a healthy 16-year-old until she developed neurological problems after receiving her second dose of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine. In an exclusive interview with The Defender, Sarah (VAERS I.D. 1354500) and her mother, Marie Green, said they feel helpless because nobody will acknowledge Sarah’s vaccine injury and “nobody can help them.”
Sarah received her second dose of Pfizer on May 4, and immediately began experiencing headaches. She then developed facial twitches and tremors, lost the ability to write, cannot drive and had to drop two college classes, Green said.
Sarah has seen numerous doctors who refuse to acknowledge the vaccine caused her condition. One doctor said Sarah had functional movement disorder and it was not related to the vaccine — although she said she has seen more cases since COVID vaccines were approved because people “stress themselves out over the vaccine and it’s psychosomatic.”
Green said she and Sarah are not anti-vaxxers, but there are too many people having problems for them not to know there’s a problem with mRNA vaccines.
Champion show jumper, 22, develops blood clots after Moderna COVID Vaccine
Allen was told by doctors the clots could have been triggered by the vaccine alongside five years on the contraceptive pill. Allen, a champion show jumper, may never be able to ride a horse again and her dreams of becoming a police detective were dashed after she was left bedbound.
“I was always wary of something happening, and it just shows that I had every right to be, because look at me now,” Allen said.
Babies could be given COVID vaccines in U.S. this winter
Pfizer’s COVID vaccine could be rolled out to babies as young as 6 months in the U.S. this winter — under plans being drawn up by the pharmaceutical giant.
According to the Daily Mail, Pfizer plans to apply for authorization to immunize American infants within the next two months, although the timeline will depend on findings of in-house trials that assess safety and efficacy of children aged six months to 5 years.
Frank D’Amelio, CFO and executive vice president of global supply at Pfizer, said in an industry conference last week the firm plans to “go file” by November, the Financial Times reported.
“We would expect to have … data for children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years old that we would file with the FDA,” D’Amelio said at the Morgan Stanley Global Healthcare Conference. “I’ll call it in the weeks shortly thereafter the filing of the data for the 5- to 11-year-olds.”
Young boys at higher risk of hospitalization from Pfizer vaccine than from COVID
According to a new pre-print study, healthy boys between the ages of 12 and 15, with no underlying medical conditions, were four to six times more likely to be diagnosed with vaccine-related myocarditis than they were to be hospitalized with COVID.
To identify children with evidence of cardiac injury, researchers reviewed reports submitted to VAERS of adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 who received an mRNA COVID vaccine.
The researchers identified a total of 257 cardiac adverse events (CAE) using the CDC’s working case definition of myocarditis, and found the post-vaccination CAE rate was highest in 12- to 15-year-old boys following their second dose of Pfizer. About 86% of the boys affected required hospital care, the authors said.
Dr. Tracy Høeg, physician, epidemiologist and associate researcher at UC Davis, found the rate of myocarditis after two doses of Pfizer’s vaccine to be 162.2 cases per million for healthy 12- to 15-year-old boys, and 94 cases per million for healthy 16- to 17-year-old boys. The equivalent rates for girls were 13.4 and 13 cases per million, respectively.
At current U.S. infection rates, the risk of a healthy adolescent being taken to the hospital with COVID in the next 120 days is about 44 per million, they said.
Experts accuse CDC of ‘cherry-picking’ data on natural immunity
Yet, the CDC is ignoring the science of natural immunity when it comes to COVID, while acknowledging it for other diseases, said Dr. Marty Makary, professor of surgery and health policy at Johns Hopkins University. On Sept. 14, Makary said on the “Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show,” the agency is providing contradictory, “illogical” COVID messaging. He accused the CDC of “cherry-picking” data and manipulating public health guidance surrounding vaccines and natural immunity to support a political narrative.
Makary explained how the CDC’s current guidance for chickenpox, for example, does not encourage those who have contracted it to vaccinate themselves against the virus. The CDC only recommends two doses of chickenpox vaccine for children, adolescents and adults who have never had chickenpox.
Makary called the conflicting guidance “absolutely illogical,” and accused the agency of “ignoring natural immunity.” He added the CDC is engaging in a statistical technique called “fishing,” where “you look for a tiny sliver of data that supports what you already believe.”
194 days and counting, CDC ignores The Defender’s inquiries
According to the CDC website, “the CDC follows up on any report of death to request additional information and learn more about what occurred and to determine whether the death was a result of the vaccine or unrelated.”
On March 8, The Defender contacted the CDC with a written list of questions about reported deaths and injuries related to COVID vaccines. We have made repeated attempts, by phone and email, to obtain a response to our questions.
Despite multiple phone and email communications with many people at the CDC, and despite being told that our request was in the system and that someone would respond, we have not yet received answers to any of the questions we submitted. It has been 194 days since we sent our first email to the CDC requesting information.
If you don’t agree with lockdowns and mandatory vaccination you are according to the LEFT associated with ‘Far right nationalists, anti-vaxxers, libertarians and conspiracy theorists‘! That’s what Leftist’s think of freedom loving people! So, I wasn’t surprised to read a Leftist say ‘Scenes of protesters clad in hi-vis jackets and shouting anti-vaccination slogans have dominated the news this week. As the ABC reported:
Some of those gathered held a banner reading ‘freedom’, while others sang the national anthem and chanted ‘f*** the jab’.
Some attacked union offices, drawing criticism from officials such as ACTU chief Sally McManus, who described the protests as being orchestrated “by violent right-wing extremists and anti-vaccination activists.”
These images may shock some but for researchers like me — who research far-right nationalist and conspiracy movements, and explore the online spaces where these people organise — these scenes came as no real surprise.
Far right nationalists, anti-vaxxers, libertarians and conspiracy theorists have come together over COVID, and capitalised on the anger and uncertainty simmering in some sections of the community.
‘COVID-19 vaccine refusal rates may be high among white evangelical Christians, but the International Mission Board (IMB) — which deploys thousands of missionaries — is not hesitant about the shot.
The global agency of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest evangelical Protestant denomination in the U.S., announced this month it is requiring vaccinations for missionaries they’re sending into the field amid the pandemic.
The IMB may be the first U.S. missionary agency known to have such a mandate, according to leaders in the field, as other faith groups approach the issue in a variety of ways including limiting where people can serve and making considerations for uneven global access to the vaccines.
“This is a very common-sense decision,” said Ed Stetzer, a Southern Baptist who is dean of Mission, Ministry and Leadership at Wheaton College. “Mission-sending agencies from the United States have the real opportunity to be vaccinated, and they’re going to places around the world that don’t.”
The IMB policy applies to both current and future missionaries as well as some staff members. Among the reasons it cited for the measure are health concerns and the fact that increasing numbers of countries are implementing their own vaccine requirements — some field personnel have reported needing to show proof to board airplanes and subways or enter restaurants and malls.
In a statement announcing the policy, IMB leaders acknowledged that it could be a deal-breaker for some people considering missionary work or currently serving with the organization.
The Rev. Allen Nelson IV, a pastor who leads a Southern Baptist congregation in Arkansas, said he is not against vaccines but is completely opposed to mandates for missionaries.
“This is something that must be left up to a person’s own conscience, research and discussions with a doctor, as well as their particular ministry context,” said Nelson.
The United Methodist Church, for its part, strongly encourages missionaries to get vaccinated but does not require it. That is partly because availability is not consistent around the world, according to Judy Chung, executive director of missionary services for the denomination’s Global Ministries.
“We have discussed how to promote vaccination without making a mandatory requirement,” Chung said, “because some may not have access to that yet.”
The denomination currently has about 240 full-time missionaries serving in 70 countries, and the most recently deployed cohort of about 40 has a vaccination rate around 80%.
“We want to make sure that our missionary population are safe so that they can focus on the mission work that has been assigned to them,” Chung said. “We want to make sure that we are not causing harm as we engage in mission.”
A key question for U.S.-based mission groups is whether they will fall under the Biden administration’s recently announced rule that companies with more than 100 employees must require workers be vaccinated for the coronavirus or undergo weekly testing.
If they do, Ted Esler, the president of Missio Nexus, an association that includes hundreds of missionary agencies in the U.S. and Canada, said about 30% of those agencies could be affected. He thinks they would comply with the federal mandate but said the issue is not currently stirring much discussion.
Ultimately, he noted, organizations’ internal rules may be rendered moot by vaccine entry requirements that many countries have instituted for visitors.
“Whether you have a policy or not,” Esler said, “if you’re going to serve cross-culturally in another country, you’re going to be faced with the government regulation.”
A June survey by the Public Religion Research Institute showed COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy decreasing and acceptance growing, but refusal rates holding steady. It also found significant variance of opinion between people from different faith traditions.
White evangelical Protestants had the highest vaccine refusal rate at 24% and among the lowest acceptance rates at 56%. By comparison, acceptance rates stood at 56% for Hispanic Protestants, 65% for Latter-day Saints, 66% for Black Protestants, 69% for other Protestants of color and 74% for white mainline Protestants.
The IMB has had vaccine requirements for other diseases in place since the 1980s, and it says some have chosen to skip international service because of it.
Esler, who served as a missionary in Bosnia in the 1990s with the Pioneers organization, said he had to be inoculated against diseases like diphtheria, polio, tetanus and typhoid before he could go.
Esler wasn’t eager to get a COVID-19 vaccine and is hesitant to advise others to roll up their sleeves. But he got vaccinated because he is continuing to travel.
“From my perspective, this is an issue more because of the fact that it’s COVID-related than it is vaccine-related,” Esler said.
‘One of the silver linings to the Covid cloud is that we now know who “they” are. You know, the mysterious “they” who “say.” As it turns out, “they” are lawless politicians, media propagandists, ignorant experts, and deluded educators. Everything “they” have been telling us for 18 months is nonsense. We know it. They know we know it. And still they speak.
They (as personified recently by President Biden) are getting increasingly shrill, frustrated that they have not yet made everyone insane like them.
But who is crazy – them, or us? It’s hard to believe that mental illness could be as pervasive as it seems to be. We have a strong bias against recognizing mass hysteria. Here are some reality checks for those moments when it seems like you’re the last sane person on Earth.
Absurdity #1: Doing the same thing and expecting different results
An unending need for more Covid booster shots would be proof the shots don’t work. “C’mon, man! Get a shot! The shot will protect you! But not this shot, the next shot. No, I mean the one after the next one – that one will really…you know the thing….”
No, sorry. That’s cuckoo.
I got vaccinated so that fearful people would be reassured that it was safe to be around me, and do business with me. And it does give me a sense (justified or not) that I’m safer. But if two shots aren’t enough, then I’m done. More of what doesn’t work won’t work.
Absurdity #2: Believing contradictory things
“They” will say at 10:00 in the morning that everyone should get vaccinated, to protect us from The Covid. Then they’ll say at 10:02 that the vaccinated should wear masks to protect us from The Covid. Well, which is it? If the shots are effective, no vaccinated person should wear a mask. Ever. Freedom from the face diaper is your reward for getting the vaccine – and it would be proof to the skeptical that the vaccines work. It undercuts their position to say, “vaccines work, but wear a mask.”
These nutjobs may really believe the shots protect you, and simultaneously don’t protect you. Somehow. They live in their own scrambled mental universe where something can be itself and its opposite in the same way at the same time.
As President Biden really said in his speech announcing (illegal) vaccine mandates, “We are going to protect the vaccinated workers from unvaccinated coworkers.”
Huh? If your vaccination doesn’t protect you from the virus, how is giving someone else the same ineffective shot going to help you? Total lunacy.
Absurdity #3: Liars demanding to be believed
This one hardly needs elaboration. The frauds who’ve told us one falsehood after another for a year-and-a-half always insist that they are telling the truth this time; that they have only our best interests at heart, and if we don’t comply, they’ll shoot. Because, compassion.
But to give just one example, answer this question: How many Americans have died from The Covid? Now, that should be a pretty solid number. Out of respect for those who have died, not to mention the interests of science and public policy, we should know that number within a small margin of error. But the CDC number is a myth, everyone knows it’s a myth, and “they” know that we know it’s a myth. The real number is not known, and because of the shenanigans they’ve played with incentives and data, it can never be known.
It’s very cynical to lie to people about life-and-death stuff. Or more likely, psychotic. But liars will keep lying to you as long as you keep listening.
Absurdity #4: Insisting on inconsistency
“The vaccine is safe,” they tell us. Yes, as far as we know now, it is – judging by the usual standard of safety for this sort of thing. We call many drugs and treatments “safe” if only a fraction of a percentage of users get sick and die from taking them. Nothing is absolutely “safe” for everyone. We don’t expect that – that would be loony.
But if we were to apply that customary, sane, and normal standard to SARS-CoV-2, we would find that it, too, is “safe.” Few people get The Covid; those who do get it usually don’t get very sick from it; those who do get sick are not likely to die from it. Why is The Covid somehow different from every other danger that mankind has ever faced? Hint: it is not.
Then why is it treated differently?
If we were to apply our Zero Tolerance Covid Policy to other hazards, no one would ever get in a car again. And why don’t we have masking and vax mandates for children exposed to the seasonal flu, which really does kill children? The fact that they do not think about The Covid like they think about anything else is a sign that they’re not thinking straight.
If we’re going to reclaim our individual and collective sanity, we’ll have to deal just as rationally with the dangers posed by The Covid as we do the dangers posed by sugar, swimming pools, and SUVs. We’ll take reasonable precautions, and then go on with our lives.
I wonder whether, if we had kept our heads in the early days of the pandemic instead of allowing them to inflate The Covid into the ultimate bogeyman, we would be over and done with all this by now. More natural immunity, fewer variants, no excuses for carpet-bombing the economy, no endless wars against normality and sanity.
It seems that they’ve “flattened the curve” out to infinity, and the most likely explanation is that they don’t want the suffering and the disruption to end. “Never let a crisis go to waste” is the cry of a sociopath who will prolong a crisis, or create one if none turns up. And we have a lot of those folks.
The Australian Federal Government does not allow doctors to prescribe other treatments such as Ivermectin so the citizen is being forced to take what Big Pharma sells. The UAP isn’t swallowing the Kool Aid and is fighting back.
‘UAP Chairman Clive Palmer says he welcomes the legal threats made by the head of the TGA, John Skerritt, against the Federal Leader of the United Australia Party, Craig Kelly.
“Any legal action against Craig Kelly or the United Australia Party will provide an opportunity to subpoena and cross examine John Skerritt and Greg Hunt about each of the 483 deaths which have been reported to the TGA and the 75 pages of over 46,000 reported adverse reactions.
“If John Skerrit seeks a legal confrontation by threatening to take Craig Kelly – a member of the House of Representatives who has sworn to protect all Australians – to court I am sure the truth will be revealed.
“All Mr Kelly did was publish the TGA’s own reports which all Australians have a right to know,” Mr Palmer said.
“The TGA report clearly highlights that the COVID-19 vaccine treatment has been responsible the deaths of 483 Australians and over 46,000 adverse reactions,” he said.
“We would welcome any chance to see Professor Skerritt cross-examined under oath so the truth can be heard about the vaccinations and the harmful effects they have on thousands of Australians.
“The United Australia Party would like to hold the Government to account for providing pharmaceutical companies with a full indemnity if they kill or cause harm to Australians being administered COVID vaccines,” Mr Palmer said.
“We would be questioning why the Government has given the pharmaceutical companies an indemnity for any claims related to the injuries and deaths their vaccines may cause.
“It should be concerning for all Australians that we don’t have the required one, three or five-year safety data for the use of this vaccine on humans or animals, and there has been no safety testing on pregnant women or children,” Mr Palmer said.
“History has shown that governments have often been wrong. That propaganda and cover-ups have often taken place. That millions have died because people in authority lack the courage and the proprietary to follow through with the principles and ethics of their calling,” Mr Palmer said.
“John Skerritt is incompetent and should resign from his position immediately.
“The Hight Court of Australia has reconfirmed the implied term in our constitution of political free speech.
