May 10, 2021 (Children’s Health Defense) — The number of reports of injuries and deaths following COVID vaccines continues to rise, according to data released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The data comes directly from reports submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S. Reports submitted to VAERS require further investigation before a causal relationship can be confirmed.
Every Friday, VAERS makes public all vaccine injury reports received as of a specified date, usually about a week prior to the release date. Today’s data show that between Dec. 14, 2020 and April 30, a total of 157,277 total adverse events were reported to VAERS, including 3,837 deaths — an increase of 293 over the previous week — and 16,014 serious injuries, up 2,467 since last week.
In the U.S., 240.2 million COVID vaccine doses had been administered as of April 30. This includes 105 million doses of Moderna’s vaccine, 127 million doses of Pfizer and 8 million doses of the Johnson &Johnson (J&J) COVID vaccine.
This week’s VAERS data show:
21% of deaths were related to cardiac disorders.
54% of those who died were male, 44% were female and the remaining death reports did not include gender of the deceased.
The average age of death was 75.1 and the youngest deaths reported include two 15-year-olds (VAERS I.D. 1187918 and 1242573 ) and a 16-year-old (VAERS I.D. 1225942). There were other reported deaths in children under 16 that could not be confirmed or contained obvious errors.
Of the 1,597 cases of Bell’s Palsy reported, 51% were reported after Pfizer-BioNTech vaccinations, 40% following vaccination with the Moderna vaccine and 131 cases, or 10%, of Bell’s Palsy cases were reported in conjunction with J&J.
There were 162 reports of Guillain-Barré Syndrome with 41% of cases attributed to Pfizer, 45% to Moderna and 19% to J&J.
FDA set to authorize Pfizer vaccine for young teens
On May 4, The Defender reported the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is preparing to authorize use of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID vaccine in adolescents 12 to 15 years old by early next week.
According to CDC data, the death rate among adolescents ages 0 to 17 who get COVID and are subsequently hospitalized is 0.7%, with many experiencing either mild or no symptoms at all. The COVID death rate in all adolescent age categories is less than 0.1%, leading some experts to question whether vaccines should be targeted to an age group that so far appears to be mostly spared from severe COVID.
As CNN reported Friday, Pfizer filed for full FDA approval for its COVID vaccine for people ages 16 and up. The FDA requires vaccine manufacturers submit data on manufacturing processes, facilities and additional information that demonstrates the vaccine can be produced reliably and consistently.
Once all the required information is submitted, a goal date will be set for a decision by the FDA. Pfizer requested priority review, which asks the FDA to take action within six months, compared to 10 months designated under standard review.
Third US male diagnosed with vaccine-induced blood clots, woman dies from brain hemorrhage after J&J vaccine
On May 6, The Defender reported doctors at University of Utah Health treated the third male to develop vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia in the U.S.
The man, under age 50, received J&J’s vaccine in early April. Ten days later he experienced pain in his toes, which then progressed to his thighs. He later began experiencing chest pain. A CT scan revealed a bilateral pulmonary embolism. Physicians discovered low platelets and blood clots in his legs and lungs, leading them to suspect VITT was the cause.
On May 4, The Defender reported a 35-year-old Michigan woman died from complications 11 days after receiving J&J’s vaccine. The woman’s family said her headache started on April 16 — eight days after being vaccinated. She died three days later. Her death certificate notes a natural death, specifically from an acute subarachnoid hemorrhage, or bleeding between the brain and tissue around the brain.
The attending physician filed a report to VAERS. In an email to the family, the CDC confirmed her death had been reported to VAERS, but said the system is not designed to determine whether a reported adverse event was caused by the vaccine.
Children’s Health Defense queried the VAERS data for adverse events associated with the formation of clotting disorders and other related conditions and found 2,808 reports for all three vaccines from Dec. 14, 2020, through April 30.
Powerful nations of the world, including China, the UK, and Canada are discussing plans to require so-called 'vaccine passports' as a condition for travel, and possibly to restrict entry to shopping and entertainment venues.
Israel has already put in place a system to discriminate against those who choose not to take the COVID vaccine, and, in the United States, Joe Biden has signed a new executive order which could pave the way for the implementation of a 'vaccine passport' system. [See more below.]
This kind of medical dictatorship must be resisted, and therefore, we must act quickly before these authoritarian notions take root and spread!
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to SAY NO to government 'vaccine passports.' Tell your legislators to respect your freedom not to vaccinate without fear of repercussion.
People should not have to live in fear of government retribution for refusing a vaccine which is being rushed to market by Big Pharma and their fellow-travelers in NGOs, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
It would be intolerable and immoral for the government to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping, go to a high school soccer game, travel on public transport, or visit their relatives who live in a different part of the country, or overseas.
Medical freedom must be respected in principle and also in practice.
So, it is now time that our policy-makers listen to all voices involved in this vital conversation, and start to represent those who will not tolerate being punished, restricted, or tracked for refusing an experimental vaccine.
Simply put, legislatures must begin to act as legislatures again.
Questions must be asked. Hearings and investigations must be held. And, the legislatures of each state and country must return to the business of representing the people who voted for them, assuming their rightful place as the originator of legislation.
We will no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question. And, neither can we accept the dictates of some doctors who seem detached from reality and from science.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which asks national political leaders (as well as state and provincial legislators in the U.S. and Canada) to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and NOT introduce 'vaccine passports,' or any other system which would discriminate on the basis of taking the COVID vaccine.

Of the 2,808 cases reported, there were 1043 reports attributed to Pfizer, 893 reports to Moderna and 860 reports to J&J — 847 cases more than U.S. health officials acknowledged during the April 23 meeting where it was recommended the pause be lifted on J&J’s vaccine.
Denmark ditches J&J vaccine
The Danish Health Authority said in a statement it had concluded “the benefits of using the COVID-19 vaccine from J&J do not outweigh the risk of causing the possible adverse effect in those who receive the vaccine.”
“Taking the present situation in Denmark into account, what we are currently losing in our effort to prevent severe illness from COVID-19 cannot outweigh the risk of causing possible side effects in the form of severe blood clots in those we vaccinate,” the health authority said.
CDC ignores The Defender, no response after two months
According to the CDC website, “the CDC follows up on any report of death to request additional information and learn more about what occurred and to determine whether the death was a result of the vaccine or unrelated.”
The Defender reached out to the CDC on March 8 with a written list of questions about reported deaths and injuries related to COVID vaccines, the status of ongoing investigations reported in the media, if autopsies are being done, the standard for determining whether an injury is causally connected to a vaccine, and education initiatives to encourage and facilitate proper and accurate reporting.
We have made numerous attempts to contact the CDC via phone and email. As of May 7, 60 days after our initial inquiry, we still have yet to receive answers to our questions.
