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 CDC’s Vaccination Trends in the US for the COVID19 vaccinations.

  1. This information needed to have been made widespread with efforts for highest media coverage on an ongoing basis early on. Most Americans have not seen these data updates which in my view is a dereliction of CDC’s sworn duty. The recent Court mandated release of Pfizer data in scheduled tranches is revealing more issues that also need to be shared widely as well on an ongoing basis to alert the public to health-related risks for fully informed personal decision with no government mandates. To do otherwise is to further erode the trust in the CDC and our government as well. Long terms studies of adverse impact and associated deaths should be funded and conducted by impartial researchers who have no conflicts of interest and published ASAP as well.
