Vaccination Related Risks of COVID19 Vs. Flu

These set of figures compare the COVID19 vaccine to the traditional Flu vaccines.  ‘Risk of Death’ percentages depend on the ‘# of Vaccinations’ data, which is only approximate, and was pulled from the CDC’s report on Flu vaccination coverage for the 2019-2020 season, and from Our World in Data for the COVID19 vaccinations.

  1. Can you search the death reports for “Autopsy”. How many done, how many pending, how many have no plans or no info at all.

    1. Thanks Ben for the very good idea…initial query shows 247 autopsies on covid19 vaxxed deaths (1.9% of covid vaxxed deaths), and 1510 on non-covid19 vaxxed deaths (17% of non-covid19 vaxxed deaths)…is this bombshell-worthy? A more thorough query would require searching over the main descriptive text of the vaers records for common phrases indicating an autopsy was done…will have to do this later as time permits.

      1. Thanks so much. Bombshell? Maybe. The “pro-vax” crowd claims that most vax deaths are just coincidental. But without autopsies, we don’t know. I did read somebody’s thread (somewhere else, I don’t remember who or where) that they thought that the autopsy rate for both Covid infections and vaccinations was mysteriously low. The thread speculated whether autopsies were “low” because of fear of infection by coroners, a desire to inflate Covid deaths (the old “of Covid” versus “with Covid” issue) to instill fear into the population, or to cover up vaccine deaths. We need to know the “normal” autopsy rates in various jurisdictions (I don’t know what that would be). But with these new vaccines, we really need an autopsy rate that is way above “the normal rate”.

    2. Thank you so much for your hard work, it is so important for everyone to have access to this information. This is definitely an eye opener for anyone and everyone that takes the time to actually wants real facts to help us to make the choice whether or not to get the vaccine. These numbers should be concerning for older individuals and for those who have higher health risks.

  2. VAERS Summary for COVID-19 Vaccines through 8/13/2021

    Regarding this article can you point me directly where you found this data? I am trying to find it and cannot on vaers website. I specifically trying to find the number of deaths regarding covid-19 vaccines.

    1. to get the total death count using the clunky VAERS interface:
      go to, press ‘VAERS Data Search’
      then use the following options (leave everything else not mentioned below as default)
      1. Organize table layout:
      For “Group Results By”, choose “Vaccine Type”
      3. Select vaccine characteristics:
      choose “COVID19 (COVID19 VACCINE)”
      4. Select location, age, gender:
      Under “State / Territory”, choose “All Locations”
      5. Select other event characteristics:
      Under “Event Category”, choose “Death”

      press any of the “send” buttons, then you should see “These results are for 13,068 total events”

  3. This is a gruesome waiting game that we are all playing. My wife and I have both had ultimatums delivered to us, we have to get the experimental shot in the next few weeks or we will both be fired from our positions. We are health care workers. I feel that they are rushing to get as many people vaccinated as possible because the narrative is collapsing. There is no reason to force us to get this experimental procedure given that we are healthy and the procedure does not affect the transmissibility, in fact it may make it worse and indeed the leaky “vaccines” (they are not vaccines at least in the USA, they are experimental gene modification procedures) may actually accelerate the propagation and development of mutation variants, as they are putting pressure on just eh spike protein itself, hence any changes in that protein will rapidly result in propagation of the mutation. This is exactly what one would do if one were TRYING to encourage the propagation of ever more dangerous mutations.
    Sadly, at this rate many thousands more people will be dying and will be put on the VAERS and in less than two months the tide will turn both epidemiologically as well as sociopolitically: the oppressed majority will rise up and insist that our Constitution be followed and that Medical Martial Law and Medical Apartheid be abolished across the country before it is too late.

    1. agree completely with you. Stand firm in your convictions…if you need to get fired, so be it…it can’t come soon enough, but there are people working on setting up alternative health care “systems” and will be needing workers like you. Reimer Fuellmich’s team is planning to buy a hospital in Germany just for that purpose.

        1. completely drug free here. Are you saying not a single person has died from the vax? While there are thousands of vax-induced deaths, here’s one that’s fairly cut and dry:
          “Forensic Pathologist after full autopsy determined patient was a healthy adult with no heart disease, no liver disease, and no pnemomia. Coroner determined after toxicology report that covid 19 vaccine was the only contributing factor. Everything else was ruled out.”

          Here’s another recent example:

        2. This is evidence if you wont stay blind it is your choice do not put down people who are doing their job and use their brain and keep their eyes open. Ignorance is choice.

        3. My father-in-law is in the ICU on a ventilator. I have spoken with the doctors and nurses several times, and they all say the same thing. If a vaccinated person ends out in the Intensive Care Unit, the majority walk out of there. The unvaccinated do not, and if they do, it’s rare. If you get a severe case of Covid, you better get your monoclonal antibodies very quickly. When the vaccine deniers come to terms that they have Covid, it’s too late for the monoclonal antibodies.

    2. Fight it. Get a religious or medical exemption. This is our last chance to keep our bodily integrity and medical freedom. DO NOT COMPLY

    3. Stand your ground Diego! Many medical personnel are refusing to get the vaccine and walking out from their positions. There are already staff shortages and they will not fire you. They are bribing, threatening, coercing people to get the vaccine, but as more people will be getting ill from the boosters, flu shots, and exposure to variants, hospitals/clinics will be needing even more med personnel. My daughter’s position in the college where she has worked 13+ years has been requiring the vaccine for faculty/staff/students. She was given an exemption because there is no one to step into her position. Forcing untested substances on people was banned in 1947 by the Nuremberg Code for the world. If people take a stand, they cannot force it! There have been many lies during the course of this scamdemic, and the greatest deception has been about the vaccine unknowns. Look up the huge number of adverse events that have occurred as they distribute these. The Swine Flu Vaccine was pulled after 25 people had died, but they record deaths from the vaccine at 13,000+ as Covid deaths and blame the unvax’d. Those who receive the vax are contagious for 14 days and can get sick again after recovery, and they face significant risk with getting the Variant. The unvax’d may get a variant, but the symptoms are significantly less for them. Remember, 99.8% of people recover with minimal or no symptoms. The vax’d are also at risk of developing ADE if they contract a variant or have other vaccinations later.

    4. I agree with everything you have said and sympathize with your situation. There seems to be plenty of data showing that the vaccines offer very little, if any, protection against the new variants:

      Resurgence of SARS-CoV-2 Infection in a Highly Vaccinated Health System Workforce, Symptoms were present in 109 of the 130 fully vaccinated workers (83.8%) and in 80 of the 90 unvaccinated workers (88.9%)

      In the Massachusetts outbreak, fully vaccinated people accounted for 74% of nearly 469 COVID-19 cases. (Four of the five people hospitalized in the outbreak were fully vaccinated; no one died.)

      The vaccines do not prevent infection via mucous membranes — the immune defenses they prepare only kick in after infection. So of the vaccinated are causing evolutionary pressure on the virus: they don’t prevent typical infection, they just reduce symptoms. They don’t create “herd immunity” at all — they encourage the virus to continue circulating and evolving.

      If the vaccine does not stop transmission or get us to herd immunity what is the point of forcing everyone to vaccinate?
      CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky “But what they can’t do anymore is prevent transmission.”
      Sir Dr. Andrew Pollard M.D., PHD Oxford lead team that created vaccine AZ “says that herd immunity is “not a possibility” in light of the spread of the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2.”
      Michael Mina M.D., PHD Harvard’s epidemiology “I think we’re pretty much going to see unabated transmission amongst vaccinated. The whole notion of herd immunity from two vaccine doses is flying out the window very quickly.”

  4. What criteria does VAERS used to link an AE to the vaccine ?
    Especially what is the time post vaccination to qualify?

    1. anyone can submit a report at anytime to VAERS. There is no time limit post vaccination to submit a VAERS report (there are some reports that are entered years after the AE occurred). VAERS is a simply repository of AEs submitted after a vax has been taken. The CDC is supposed to investigate every report to determine if there is causality.

  5. Facebook flagged best I can tell, unless you disclaimer info that not all deaths injuries are proved unlike what they called covid death as in motorcycle death it is misleading, liked your data and feel it makes a valid point obviously it detracts from the narrative. Perhaps you can highlight that like the other covid unsubstantiated deaths this info is for you the individual to decide

  6. cool charts. cite your sources more effectively. your analysis is entirely misleading based on the fact that VAERS data is inclusive of ALL death types after vaccine. you’re attributing incorrectly and trying to develop a hot take from nothing, essentially ruining the data. be a better analyst. love you, byeeeee.

    1. not sure I understand your comment…”your analysis is entirely misleading based on the fact that VAERS data is inclusive of ALL death types after vaccine. you’re attributing incorrectly”…please clarify or shoot me an email. thx

    2. Isn’t that how they document deaths by covid? If it was cancer, a heart attack, whatever the case, they only want to say it was covid and leave out all the underlying health conditions. This data is great and should be more widely spread. The fact that people who have already had covid are being forced to get the jab or be fired is insane since they are naturally immune now. No one should be able to force anyone to take it who doesn’t want to, especially looking at those numbers.

  7. How does the data compare in this regard: vaccination attributed deaths vs COVID attribute deaths?

    I anticipate there are a few provisos and yeah buts and therefores as with most things in the world that must be understood to understand that particular set of data.

    1. tough question as there is fraud and suppression of truth on both sides of the equation. Here are the “official” US figures– vaccine attributed deaths: 0 (or near 0). Covid attributed deaths: approx 623K. What are the real numbers? We may never know, since many of the deaths from the vax are not reported, autopsied, or investigated (and often the bodies are cremated). And there was gross overinflation of the Covid deaths — that is, many of the Covid attributed deaths were not really Covid (eg. if a man died from a gunshot wound or in a motorcycle accident, did he really die from Covid just b/c he may have tested positive in the last 28 days???)…IMO, this is all by design to obfuscate the truth.

    1. You summed up in your article exactly what seems to be going on: “The evidence for funny business is, of course, circumstantial. But direct evidence of funny business, would be a direct confession of fraud, which we’re never realistically going to see. Clearly, something is awry.” They are likely committing fraud (no surprise) by suppressing the US deaths and piling up the foreign bodies instead, to perhaps make the death counts less shocking for the US. IMO, VAERS is dramatically underreporting the deaths and adverse events…the only way the truth gets exposed is if this goes to discovery in court, or if more whistleblowers come out with hard evidence… we already have whistleblower testimonies coming out– one for 45K minimum deaths and the other for 200K deaths (and those are just the numbers for people dying in the immediate term–within first 3-7 days). Steve Kirsch’s team has come up with numerous ways to logically and reasonably estimate a figure of 150K deaths. The CDC will never admit any fault or wrongdoing, but their lack of transparency regarding the true numbers is IMO, an implicit confession of guilt at this point.

  8. First, thank you for doing this work. While this alone does not prove anything, it is certainly cause for concern. My issue all along has been – why the strident call for the vaccines after the strident efforts to suppress the use of therapeutics like HcQ an Ivermectin which have both been shown now to be effective at preventing and treating COVID. They are not 100%, but then nothing is. So, my question for you is, are you able to do a similar report from FAERS (FDA Adverse Effects Reporting System) focusing specifically on therapeutics like HcQ and Ivermectin. I would be interested to see AE’s for the life of each therapeutic and separately AE’s associated with use on COVID. This may be difficult if not impossible given that Ivermectin was used largely in developing countries to fight parasitic diseases which were rare and possible non-existent in the US. I am constantly battling with people who claim that Ivermectin is “horse medicine”, which is true, but misleading given that it has been administered nearly 4 billion times to people. The issue with it is that people are going to their veterinarian, or tractor supply store and buying a formulation intended for use on horses or livestock, and that is dangerous. It can be prescribed by a doctor which is what people need to do if they want to use that medication. For a lot more info, go to the FLCCC website.
    Anyway, thanks again.

    1. AFAIK, the data for the specific symptoms related to FAERS adverse events is not available…the raw numbers of AEs/Deaths, however, are available. I already summarized the comparison of deaths from common therapeutics vs. covid here:
      IMO, horse Ivermectin is perfectly fine I don’t believe it is dangerous as long as you dose it properly…the FDA is the one to blame for people taking it…if the FDA/CDC would just allow Ivermectin to be prescribed (many docs won’t prescribe) or even make it available over the counter, no one would be taking the horse version.

      1. I agree with you it is the CDC and FDA fault people are going to feed stores for Ivermectin. If doctors won’t prescribe (I have asked 4) and big drug chains and some small ones won’t fill prescriptions where do we go to get it quick? I have it for my horses and it helped my long haul problems so until I can get a prescription from a doctor my farmers coop will do. Thank you for the great data!!

        1. Marg – check this list out as provided by the FLCCC doctors. It took me a couple of weeks to finally get through to a doctor who would prescribe, but I finally did and now have a 3 months supply of Ivermectin, plus an additional prescription for HcQ to use in treatment if I become infected.

    2. Hello Barnes,

      I agree with what you have said regarding suppression of Ivermectin & HCQ and people going to their veterinarian for the medication. Just wanted to comment though that I spent $270 on 30 pills of Ivermectin prescribed by a medical doctor and feel that I was taken advantage of.
      So I agree that people should be going through a physician but our government has made it very difficult and expensive to do so.

  9. Another question re: the reported deaths daily vs. doses administered. The ratio is much higher at the beginning of the use of vaccines which may be because the elderly were being vaccinated first and many may have had other co-morbidities, or were near death anyway. Is there a way to re-run that graph to exclude deaths for people over, say 65?

    Thanks again, this is all good work.

    1. yes, but keep in mind that the frontline docs & other medical prof’ls were also being jabbed at the same time as the elderly, so maybe not so simple a conclusion. Also, IIRC, there were also people who desperately wanted it and “claimed” they were immunocompromised and should skip to the front of the line, and they got it around the same time as well.

      1. Thank you for your responses and the work you are doing. Re: Ivermectin, I agree 100% that the FDA should not be disparaging it and that doctors should be prescribing it. I finally was able to get a 3 month prescription for it to use as a preventative along with a prescription for HcQ to use if I do happen to get infected. Re: using veterinarian medication, one caution I have read about is that the serum version of Ivermectin also contains other ingredients that may be helpful for animals, but harmful to humans. I am not an expert so can’t offer anything other than an opinion based on what I read. For me, the safest approach is to find a doctor to write a prescription, and as you are likely aware, the FLCCC doctors have put together a list of doctors willing to do that. It can just take time.

  10. The information that you have provided is a lot to chew on. But very interesting for other research for another novel.

  11. Most media outlets are discounting the VAERS data as being unreliable. For example:
    This article states: “However, many of these deaths show no verifiable link to the vaccine.
    For example, a 72-year-old woman died in mid-July — a month after being diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. She was included in the report because she received the vaccine in March. (VAERS ID: 1478698)”

    I’m wondering what your thoughts are on this type of counter argument? Is there any “verified” list available?

    1. Most media outlets are controlled by big Pharma, so it is no surprise they are trying to discount VAERS. “Many of these deaths show no verifiable link to the vaccine”…that is true, there are probably many deaths which cannot be proven to be linked. Also notice that the example that they give is perfect for their narrative–an older woman who dies months after first receiving the vax…for sure those cases are going to be hard to prove and may not truly be linked at all. However, how about some other examples? Here’s a few: 1334527,1480163,1456637,1431289, 1501694 . These are healthy, young people dropping dead within days of receiving the vax…what is their counterargument to that? Coincidence? (maybe one or two, but how about a couple hundred?) Or maybe fake reports? (VAERS claims it removes false reports). You don’t need a medical degree to know that healthy people (esp. younger ones) don’t just drop dead in large numbers for no reason after they’ve taken an experimental jab just days before…you only need common sense to see that these are vax associated deaths. If you can find a couple hundred healthy people who have died within a short time of the vaxx in VAERS, should that not shut this whole program down immediately? Remember that the 1976 swine flu vax program was shut down after 20-50 or so deaths occurred within close proximity to vaccination. Also, there are autopsies finally being done on the jabbed, though not many, see my post on it, and they are showing conclusively that the vax is causing harm and death.
