If you go to any page on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website that discusses COVID-19 and its subsequent vaccine, you will find the words “COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.” It’s written as a fact as if there can be no opposing opinion that is correct and no question to its validity.
The problem is that this mindset for any given medical treatment is just not correct. It’s why we call it the “practice” of medicine, as in it has not been perfected and not everything is known. It’s also why it’s common to get a second opinion on just about any procedure or possible treatment.
And yet, according to those on the political left and the CDC, it appears no questions or even hesitation should be allowed when it comes to the COVID vaccine. In fact, far too many of us have already been threatened with being fired or evicted or simply not served because we aren’t willing to take a government that has been known to lie to us at their word.
So if this helps you decide at all, as it is your choice and your choice alone whether or not to be vaccinated, we have some facts for you, call it your second opinion, if you want – Lord, knows you’re unlikely to get it from any government or CDC official.
According to Just the News, approximately 56 percent of Americans have received the approved mRNA shots in one form or another. That’s 391 million doses to about 185 million people.
After receiving these shots, 2,433,730 adverse symptoms have been reported to the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System or VAERS, with 569,294 reported incidents. Now, to be clear, that doesn’t mean 569,294 people have reported symptoms or adverse reactions. In some cases, one person may be experiencing more than one complication or symptom.
According to the outlet, as a result of these incidents, no less than 8,164 people have died.
Here’s a list of a few of the types of symptoms being reported and their approximate numbers:
- Problems with body temperature — 226,457
- Skin problems — 174,793
- Issues regarding movement, muscle, nerve, neuropathy, numbness and paralysis — 164,200
- Reactions at the site of injection — 121,538
- Headaches — 111,549
- Heart problems — 79,012
- Respiratory or lung problems — 77,976
- Abdominal problems — 40,415
- Catching COVID after being vaccinated — 34,589
- Blood clots or bleeding, including in the heart and in the brain — 32,023
- Mood or memory problems — 31,720
We must also point out that just because a symptom and incident have occurred after the vaccination, that doesn’t “necessarily mean they were caused by the vaccine,” according to the analysis. Neither is it just medical professionals who are reporting these cases. In some instances, patients or their families may have reported adverse symptoms. This means that they can’t be verified and are subjective.
Still, if even half of them are correct, it is cause for some concern.
In addition, Just the News reported that these are just the numbers being reported in the US. All around the world, similar instances of adverse reactions and symptoms continue to pop up.
Most common are reports of functional neurological disorders being found in women in their 30s – according to the outlet, ‘hundreds of thousands of reports. This may include “limb weakness, paralysis, tremor, spasms, problems walking, speech problems, tingling, vision loss, seizures, fatigue, anxiety, chronic pain, memory symptoms, and blackouts.”
According to a “real-world case-control study from Israel,” which has the highest population of vaccinated at 78 percent, 16,858 reports of lymphadenopathy have been linked to the Pfizer shot.
The Johnson & Johnson vaccine has been attributed to 696 cases of Guillian-Barre Syndrome paralysis. And the EU has reported a 5 percent fatality rate in men over 50 for the same symptoms.
According to the Journal of Neurology, 650 reports of acute central nervous system demyelination, including multiple sclerosis or MS, have been linked to Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, with several patients dying.
Then, there are the 2,810 reports of blood clotting and heart issues, so many that the CDC has an official investigation into Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. As a result, the FDA has been forced to warn about both shots being linked to heart inflammation. And the UK’s Daily Telegraph has reported that teenage boys are now “six times more likely to develop heart problems” from the vaccine than they are to get COVID.
Add this to an additional 32,000 reports of blood clots and heart-related disorders worldwide.
And yet, according to the CDC, the vaccines are without question “safe.”
Hopefully, this second opinion has convinced you that a little research before making a final decision couldn’t hurt. As with any medical choice, there are risks no matter which way you look. The risks you choose to take on, though, should be completely up to you.
