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. We have to stand up and say no, and when they try to force us by guns and threats than God said the have the right to stand up for Jesus and God, he has chosen his David to stand for his people, he is on the earth already, no one knows him, but he will come forward when it is right, God said have FAITH and PRAY for He hears His people, He will come and Purge the Earth of all the evil and Jesus will call His people there will be 1000 years peace.

  2. I love this site and appreciate all the work that goes into it.

    Would it be possible to start tracking data for the Novavax as well? As it’s a more traditional vaccine, I’m thinking it will be much safer compared to the mRNA and adenoviral vector vaccines, but it would be nice to have the data to confirm that.

    Now that it’s in late stage US trials, I’m thinking there must be publicly available sources for it.

      1. thanks for the comment, but haven’t seen much on Novavax yet, and already stretched too thin to think about trying to keep track of that one as well right now. Plus at this point, very skeptical of anything new that is coming out of the pharma industry.

  3. I agree with you Wayne, I do not think there is anything as fair competition to possibly create a “safe” vaxx, as if the powers that be will allow new player, and new vaxx technology, etc… Pharma is a complete attack on God given natural innate immunity and health. Thank God I never took any vaxxes or flu shots in my life! My madre early on did not subscribe to childhood vaxxes. What’s more is she would falsify my yellow card school vaxx records growing up, an easy task as she was lead manager of her husband’s 3 medical clinics (Meridian Medical Group) here in Silicon Valley, SF, Salinas, Manteca. lol

    I was not anti vaxx myself in regards to annual flu shots, I just never carved out time to get a shot, I was never ever that sick when I would catch a 48hr bug every few years… what’s the point of a shot? I was a simpler man back then. Now since my own research, all trust has been lost in pharma and vaxxes in particular, I wouldn’t even let a doctor rx me aspirin or even penicillin…. maybe some Toradol or Rocephen, but I would go to my x-step daddy for that! All off the books as usual. I’m might be one of the last Aztec unicorns to exist! Pureblood! lol Stay Cool

  4. I would like to receive any updates on this information. Thank you for carrying out this research.

  5. These manufacturers think there exempt, maybe today, but wait till the law makers are rotated. That exemption can be removed as fast as it was put in place. And new laws can say anything, including using the word retroactive. Each of these companies are doomed. Heads will roll, corporate leader’s pay and bonuses will be returned via (claw back).
