Reported Health Problems After C19 Vaccines
Do the Covid-19 shots "protect people"? Are the Covid-19 shots safe? These are reasonable questions that deserve honest responses. Especially this week, as Vermont parents, students, teachers, nurses and others face state-sponsored policies that "encourage" (coerce) Covid-19 vaccination prior to the start of school.
The situation on the ground is that those who do not want the products are being pressured into accepting them or face losing their college education, their dreams of travel, their jobs and their livelihood. Colleges are mandating the EUA vaccines, including the University of Vermont
. Demands for masking and/or disclosure of otherwise private medical paperwork are becoming routine in some medical center environments and at places of employment. Exemptions remain available under Vermont law, but some schools are restricting privileges and opportunities nonetheless. Massive federal funding is now tied to incentivize compliance.
Consent is paramount in medicine. So is full disclosure of risk. Sadly, many Vermonters after being told the shots were safe have been hospitalized after taking an experimental vaccine. Next of kin are being told "no way it was the shot(s)" and "it's normal, nothing to report or worry about" and "at least they didn't die of COVID." Those who encouraged the shots are now routinely downplaying and discounting these real-life experiences. Meanwhile, people are picking up the pieces and doing the best they can with what little help they can find.
People are asking for information, and want the truth. So in this update, we offer what we know so far about reported health problems, including but not limited to:
COAGULOPATHY (Blood Clots)
April 26, 2021: The US FDA amended an Emergency Use Authorization for the J&J vaccine to reflect the risk of rare blood clots - but then also said vaccinations could resume immediately.
MYOCARDITIS (Heart Inflammation)
June 4, 2021: A presentation from the US vaccine safety work group of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices noted the “likely association” of myocarditis with mRNA vaccination (i.e., Pfizer, Moderna) in adolescents and young adults.
Even so, “the CDC and the US Department of Health and Human Services, together with 15 of the country’s leading medical and public health organizations — including the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the American Medical Association and the American Nurses Association — issued a joint statement after the meeting saying they “strongly encourage everyone 12 and older ‘to get the shots because the benefits far outweigh any potential harms.’ (Source: Washington Post)
“While myocarditis has not been officially listed as a rare adverse event related to mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines (i.e., Pfizer, Moderna), an editorial related to both reports lines up the circumstantial evidence.
The striking clinical similarities in the presentations of these patients, their recent vaccination with an mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccine, and the lack of any alternative etiologies for acute myocarditis suggest an association with immunization," write David Shay, MD, MPH, of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and colleagues.
Myocarditis or pericarditis were not detected in the clinical trials for these vaccines; however, it is possible that any association is too rare for recognition in a clinical trial enrolling less than several hundred thousand participants."
This temporal association [with mRNA-based COVID vaccines] does not establish causality, especially because a myocarditis-like syndrome has been seen following SARS-CoV-2 infection," the authors write. "Rather, these case series highlight the need for additional surveillance and investigation." (Source: CIDRAP)
July 12, 2021: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a new warning on Johnson & Johnson’s (J&J) COVID vaccine, saying the shot has been linked to Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS), a “serious but rare” autoimmune disorder.
The Washington Post attributed the news to “four individuals familiar with the situation.”(Source: Children’s Health Defense)
Guillain-Barré syndrome can cause muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis, and symptoms typically last for a few weeks to a couple years. (Source: LiveScience)
SCIENTISTS AND HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS EXPRESS CONCERNS OVER VACCINE-TESTING, FDA FAST-TRACKING
“There is no legitimate reason to hurry to grant a license to a coronavirus vaccine,” they wrote in a blog post published in The BMJ.” (Source: Medpage Today)
In which he explained:
“As hundreds of millions of people around the world get vaccinated, it may seem like wordsmithing to highlight the fact that none of the covid-19 vaccines in use are actually ‘approved.’ Through an emergency access mechanism known as Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA), the products being rolled out still technically remain “investigational.” 3 Factsheets distributed to vaccinees are clear: ‘There is no FDA approved vaccine to prevent covid-19.’
"Officials have consistently emphasised that despite shaving years off traditional timelines for producing vaccines, no compromises in the process were taken. However one type of study, tracking the distribution of a vaccine once injected in the body, was not conducted using any of the three vaccines currently authorised in the US.
"Continuation of placebo controlled follow-up after EUA will be important and may actually be critical to ensure that additional safety and effectiveness data are accrued to support submission of a licensure application as soon as possible following an EUA.
"Once a decision is made to unblind an ongoing placebo controlled trial, that decision cannot be walked back. And that controlled follow-up is lost forever,” the FDA said last October. (Source: BMJ)
