This is an update of the March 31st CotD presentation of the “Adverse Events of Special Interest” (AESI) plus the “Total Adverse Events” within the Health Canada “Reported Side Effects Following Covid-19 Vaccination” report. The reports can be accessed via the Government of Canada website : https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/coronavirus-disease-covid-19/vaccines.html under Vaccine Safety and click on Reported Side Effects. Click on the “detailed technical report” for the most recent report or go to Archived Reports to view all reports since January 2021. Also try the Data Source shown in the graph. Total cumulative AESIs to date are 6,216 (in the order of 231 per month). Note that Health Canada has changed reporting this data from monthly to every three months.
Panel 1 illustrates the four main AESI sub-groups : Cardiovascular, Circulatory, Nerves/Nervous System and Other (mostly Anaphylaxis). These four sub-groups account for over 90 percent of the AESIs to date. The majority of cases within the Cardiovascular sub-group (80 percent) are attributed to myocarditis and pericarditis. Note: in a previous report (May 27, 2022), Health Canada erased (without explanation) 1014 Cardiovascular and 732 Nervous System AESIs.
Panel 2 illustrates the three sub-groups: Auto-immune Diseases, Kidney/Liver Injury and Pregnancy Outcomes (spontaneous abortion, fetal growth restriction) which combined account for 8 percent of the AESIs to date. Deaths are presented in the graph since the data set is separate and accessed below Table 1 in the website. The data indicates there has been on average 18 vaccine related deaths per month since May 2021.
Panel 3 illustrates the Total Vaccine Adverse Events. As per the website, there were 55,145 cumulative “total adverse event following immunization reports” with 44,239 defined as “non-serious” and 10,906 defined as “serious”. In order to comprehend the actual full picture of adverse events, look at Figure 4 (as per the Report) which lists the “most frequently reported” adverse events to date (i.e. n=140,451) or an average of 2.5 “events” per report. The 442 Deaths are added to the totals since Health Canada excludes Deaths from these statistics. Total Serious Events plus Deaths account for 21 percent of all Adverse Events. FYI, it is known that not all Vaccine Adverse Events are reported to the government and consequently are vastly “under-reported” (i.e. the numbers could be up to 40 times higher).
Remember, as per Health Canada : “Evidence indicates that vaccines and boosters are effective at helping to prevent serious illness, hospitalization and death due to COVID-19. Evidence indicates that the benefits of COVID-19 vaccines continue to outweigh the risks of the disease. Receiving an mRNA booster dose provides even better protection.” Do you think the data supports these claims by Health Canada?
