(LifeSiteNews) – Public Health Ontario released its most recent Surveillance Report on COVID jab data in the province and over 20 thousand shot recipients were diagnosed with confirmed cases of adverse reactions due to the jab.
The report gathered together data from when the shots were rolled out in December 2020 to the end of August 2022.
The report reads: “This report provides a summary of adverse events following immunization (AEFIs) that are temporally associated (i.e., occur after receiving the vaccine) with receipt of COVID-19 vaccine and meet the provincial surveillance definitions (i.e., confirmed).”
Of the 21,439 confirmed adverse events reported, almost 1200 met the “serious definition” criteria which are defined as an event “that results in death, is life-threatening, requires in-patient hospitalization or prolongs an existing hospitalization, results in persistent or significant disability/incapacity, or in a congenital anomaly/birth defect.”
The fatal and life-threatening events reported are listed as the following: “[V]accine-associated enhanced disease, multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children and adults, acute respiratory distress syndrome, acute cardiovascular injury, myocarditis/pericarditis, coagulation disorder (including thrombotic events), thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) and vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT), acute kidney injury, acute liver injury, anosmia and/or ageusia, chilblain-like lesions, single organ cutaneous vasculitis, erythema multiforme, acute pancreatitis, rhabdomyolysis, and subacute thyroiditis.”
All confirmed events that met the provincial surveillance definition were vetted by a strict process that requires reported events to be assessed by a public health unit that are then assessed by a provincial regulator before finally assessed by a federal organization.
Canada does not have a similar system as the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) in the United States, where anyone who experiences a reaction can report their information to the system.
It is estimated that only a fraction of vaccine adverse events are report to the VAERS system and that it is significantly underreported how many events actually take place. Given that there is not self-reporting system in Canada like the US, it is not known how many significant reactions may have been missed.
Many Ontarians were coerced into taking the jab in order to keep their jobs or go to school even though Canadian public health officials are now admitting that COVID represents a similar risk as the average flu for most people.
