Shocker: CDC finds several 'safety signals' in two most popular COVID-19 vaccines made by Pfizer, Moderna
While it was clear that then-President Donald Trump was trying to do a good thing by getting COVID-19 vaccines developed and distributed to the public as quickly as possible in 2020 as the virus spread throughout the country, killing hundreds of thousands of Americans, it has become clear that the rush to get them to market was a huge mistake.
Vaccines, in general, are not good in a majority of cases, according to several experts. But that said, there is a reason why it takes years to develop and introduce them: The human body is complex, and there are so many things that can (and often do) go wrong during clinical trials which prevent rapid deployment of vaccines.
That did not happen with the COVID-19 jabs. Under the auspices of Trump's "Operation Warp Speed," vaccine makers sped development and delivery of several vaccines, and only now are we beginning to reap the consequences. Even the federal government's health agencies (which lied to get the vaccines approved and distributed in the first place) are discovering a wave of safety issues with the two most popular ones, the Pfizer and Moderna jabs.
The Epoch Times reported this week
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has identified hundreds of safety signals for the two most widely administered COVID-19 vaccines, according to monitoring results obtained by The Epoch Times. Bell’s palsy, blood clotting and death were among the signals flagged through analysis of adverse event reports submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
The CDC, which runs VAERS with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), describes it as “the nation’s early warning system” for vaccine issues. The CDC’s primary analysis compared the reports made for specific events suffered after receipt of a Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to the reports lodged following vaccination with any other vaccine, or all non-COVID-19 vaccines.
While safety signals require further analysis to determine if they are linked to a vaccine, they nonetheless are conditions that are, at least initially, thought to be related to the jabs.
According to the outlet, the CDC conducted its analysis of the adverse events
that were reported between Dec. 14, 2020, and July 29, 2022. The CDC refused to make the results public, so The Epoch Times
obtained them through a Freedom of Information Act request.
The VAERS is a passive reporting system that can accept reports from anyone. However, most of them are usually filed by health care professionals who were informed during the pandemic to make the reports if issues were discovered after patients were given vaccines. Anyone who files a fake report can face stiff penalties.
"Reports do not prove causality or a link between an event and a vaccine. At the same time, studies show that the number of reports is often an undercount of the actual occurrence of post-vaccination events," The Epoch Times
The type of analysis used to determine if there are safety signals is called proportional reporting ratio, or PPR, which "involves comparing the incidence of a specific adverse event after a specific vaccine to the incidence after all other vaccines," the outlet reported.
"A signal is triggered when three thresholds are met, according to the CDC: a PRR of at least two, a chi-squared statistic of at least four and three or more cases of the event following receipt of the vaccine being analyzed. Chi-squared tests are a form of statistical analysis used to examine data," the report noted further.
For months, Americans have been told in unequivocal terms that "the vaccines are safe," but as usual, the powers that be have been lying to us all along
No wonder trust in our institutions continues to collapse.
