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. Hi,
    Thank you so much for this website!!! The WONDER searches I have done were befuddling and the data download was hard work (and, even, blocked Monday when I tried this last).
    Could you possibly run deaths and incidents set of reports that show, say, the rolling last 12 months? It seems that the percentages have improved considerably — although the message is still basically the same. I don’t know why this seems to have dropped (your ideas are welcome), but I want to avoid making arguments or decisions based on “ancient history” or start-up problems.
    Thank you,

  2. Awesome job putting this reference together! I’ve already used it many times to keep my friends abreast as to what’s really going on out there. Keep up the good work! Question: I just read an article saying J&J jabs were responsible from numerous cases of Guillan-Barre. Is there an existing chart on this site that compares the incidents of specific Adverse Events by vaccine manufacturer?
