Already 55 of Americans died after being vaccinated against COVID-19. These figures are given by the US federal database Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). She collects reports from medical institutions, comments from patients and their close relatives. According to reports, deaths recorded among people, who received Moderna and Pfizer / BioNTech vaccines.
In some cases, patients died within a few days after vaccination. In Colorado, 66-year-old nursing home man felt sleepy and stayed in bed all day after vaccinations. The next morning he was found in bed "motionless, pale, with half-open eyes and foam at the mouth ". By that time, he was no longer breathing and he had no pulse..
In other cases, death was recorded several hours after vaccination. As reported by The Epoch Time, 93-summer man from South Dakota injected with Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine 4 January is about 11:00. After about two hours, he said, that he is tired and cannot continue the course of physiotherapy, which he was passing at that moment. Soon his legs became heavy, and he stopped breathing. Beyond fatalities, Americans reported 96 life-threatening complications after vaccination, about 24 cases of disability, 225 hospitalizations and 1388 emergency room visits.
Moderna and Pfizer declined to comment on these episodes. Spokesperson for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Abigail Kapobianko told the media, that her agency “is closely investigating all reported deaths following vaccinations with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)». she stressed, that officials are working with health facilities to obtain patient records and information on clinical observations.
"It is important to note, that VAERS data usually does not provide confirmed information about, were the negative effects caused by the vaccine ", - added Capobianco.
The VAERS website also states, that incoming reports cannot be proof of, that the fatal effects are caused by vaccination. Head of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (one of the organs of the CDC) Nancy Messonnier stated, that severe allergic reactions to COVID-19 vaccines occurred with a frequency 11,1 per million vaccinations versus 1,3 per million flu shots. According to 15 January, about 10,5 million Americans have already received the vaccine. U.S. federal health authorities report, that the side effects of vaccines are not fully understood, nevertheless, Moderna and Pfizer / BioNTech are "still safe".
“These are safe and effective vaccines. We have statistics, to prove it ", - said Messonier.

His wife Heidi celebrated, that her husband was completely healthy before vaccination. The man was admitted to the intensive care unit with a diagnosis of acute idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. This is a blood disease, vaccine-induced.
“He was a supporter of vaccination, so I took a volunteer, - wrote Heidi on Facebook. - People need to know, what side effects may occur, that it's not good for everyone equally. In this case, a beautiful life is destroyed, perfect family, many people were affected. Don't let his death be in vain, you are welcome, save more lives, sharing this information ".
Pfizer's press statement said, that there is currently no evidence of a link between the vaccine and his death.
“Pfizer and BioNTech Know of the Death of a Healthcare Provider through 16 days after receiving the first dose of BNT162b2, - said in the statement of the pharmaceutical company. - This is an extremely unusual clinical case of severe thrombocytopenia, fortunes, which reduces the body's ability to clot blood and stop internal bleeding.
The company approves, that is actively investigating the fatal case and so far "does not see a direct connection with the use of the vaccine".
“Today millions of people have been vaccinated, and we closely monitor all side effects in patients, receiving our vaccine. It is important to note, what are the serious side effects, including deaths, not related to vaccine, probably, will occur with the same particularity, as well as among the general population ", - reports Pfizer.
