Vaccine skeptics or opponents like to cite the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) as proof that coronavirus vaccines kill or seriously injure people resulting from detrimental results after being immunized. While the choice to vaccinate should be just that, fortunately, such claims aren’t so simple as revealed by an essay published in August by Cameron English at the American Council on Science and Health’s website. Never forget about environmentalism’s influence on opposition to vaccination too.
COVID Vaccines Kill? A Second Look At Scary VAERS Reports
By Cameron English – August 23, 2021
COVID-19 vaccination has been linked to a collection of severe side effects. Many cases of anaphylaxis, myocarditis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, blood-clotting disorders and even Bell’s palsy have been reported to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) since the first shot was approved last December. Predictably, these self-reported incidents have provided ample fodder to activist groups and skeptics working to scare people away from effective and very safe immunizations for COVID-19.
The skeptical take now seems to be that mass vaccination is injuring and killing untold numbers of people as well as driving the evolution of SARS-COV-2 variants, necessitating dangerous booster shots. That last argument has been addressed elsewhere, so we’ll continue our analysis of adverse events from part one.
As I noted in the first installment, studies of adverse events lag behind the reported adverse events. The skeptics will continue to cite unverified VAERS data, then quietly discard them once they’re investigated and found to be less damning than originally thought.
