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. Why isn’t VAERS reporting all the CMS data? Data that in July showed 44,000 + deaths following 3 days post COVID injections from the Medicare and Medicare systems?
    Why have over 150,000 VAERS reports disappeared?
    Show us all the data.
    Dr. McCullough has estimated VAERS is withholding 500,000 deaths following COVID injections from the public.
