COVID Vaccines Blow Up CDC Death, Disability List

As regular readers know, association isn't causation. But when an association is strong enough, causation is likely. The CDC has a system called VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Report System) to "detect possible safety problems in U.S.-licensed vaccines." Anyone can report an adverse event (a medical problem following a vaccine), and health care professionals are required to do so. People reporting don't have to prove the vaccine caused the reaction, and some reactions might be just a coincidence. But one new set of vaccines accounting for over half of all deaths reported since 1990 to VAERS is a very big coincidence. Click to enlarge tables.

Deaths per vaccine reported to VAERS since 1990 (top 11 vaccines on list). 

I assume the percent of events adds up to over 100 because people often get more than one kind of vaccine at a time. Again, this list (shown in part) depicts 30 years of reports. 

Permanent disability events per vaccine reported to VAERS since 1990 (top 12 vaccines on list).

Likewise, the chart above shows permanent disability events reported to VAERS over the past 30 years. COVID vaccines have soared to the top of the list in less than a year.

So-called "fact checkers" observe that anyone can make a report to VAERS and that the reported events were not necessarily caused be the vaccines. Correct as far as it goes--but that's also true for all the other vaccines on the list. And since VAERS isn't well-known but health care professionals are required to report certain adverse events to the system, they probably make the vast majority of reports. 

That's the extent of the explanation I've read for the explosion in reported death and permanent disability events. I thought I might see reports of bots or activist groups making false reports, but curiously, all I see in the news and on the CDC's web site is how safe the vaccines are--and how VAERS is supposed to work as an early warning system. If these levels aren't warnings, I don't know what is.

The Purge, COVID, and Return of GERD

The Purge I've been nostaligic for the days five to ten years back when the worst interaction you might have online was a nasty comment or two. Moderators, who might have to deal with a few hundred comments at most, blocked the trolls if they became too disruptive. Now that Facebook and Twitter are excommunicating people wholesale, maybe we'll go back to smaller, moderated sites and leave the yelling and screaming to the maddening crowds over there.  Dave Rubin asked Tulsi Gabbard today how she'd moderate Twitter. In practice, I don't think it's possible. It's too big with too many users who are completely unhinged and ready to come after you IRL if they don't like what you say. Then there's Facebook, which seemed like a platform for narcissists during the few weeks I used it long ago. They say people used to live in groups of about 150--maybe it's time for virtual communities to return to something closer to that number. Not only was there less trou

The NUMBERS! And Fairness! D'oh!

I'll start with some  good news : "...residents 70 and older can now register to receive the coronavirus vaccine through the state [of Indiana]'s website." The CDC and some academics wanted to vaccinate essential workers to " level the playing field ," because "essential workers" include a higher proportion of non-white people than the over-70 crowd does. As readers surely know, the over-70 crowd is far more likely to die of COVID than anyone else. No, the link doesn't go to the Babylon Bee or The Onion : they really called for more deaths in the name of Fairness.  And sorry, teachers , but you don't get to jump the line in front of doctors, nurses, essential medical staff and old people, either.  Oldsters among the first to get COVID vaccines in Indiana.

It was great day of having fun and getting things done: I mowed the lawn, trimmed the collards, cleaned the basement, and went to the festival across the street. I'm tired and a little sore--but what a difference from last year when a few hours' worked rehabbing the garage left me feeling like I'd been run over. Three weeks' chiropractic care, yoga and B. coagulans turned things around. I also started sitting ankle-on-knee more, something I read at Sal Di Stefano's site. He's a personal trainer that Dr. Davis had on the Zoom meeting this week. It seems to help.  Since it's too hot and humid now to sleep well, and I'm too environmentally conscious (read: cheap) to set the air conditioner lower, I sleep in the basement. After five years' living here, the basement accumulated enough crud and clutter to need a good cleaning. I'd put it off for weeks because cleaning and decluttering distresses me more than surgery or a root canal. My mother (a hoard

Frustrations! GERD, Masks and Carrageenan

I'll start with the good news: my Thanksgiving vacation didn't give me COVID. Since I don't have any major risk factors and I'm not 80 years old, I'm not surprised. Yesterday I was able to whip the yard into shape with the mower, rake, hedge trimmers and a sawzall . It was a beautiful sunny day, like winter in Denver, and most of my coworkers who give me work were in training. I was outdoors in a t-shirt. The thyroid problems seem like they're behind me.  But my GERD is back. After coming back from Ohio, I bought a magazine full of delicious looking keto recipes and made some of them: keto pound cake, keto brunch, keto enchiladas, and keto broccoli soup. The last two were heavenly going down--then they started pushing up acid. It's thought to be too much bacteria that creates gas and causes GERD; I wonder if the culture in the cheese has something to do with it, too.  Cheese: my love for you is way out of line. So I was suffering after having the enchiladas

Thanksgiving is ON

What Gov. Newsom & top doctors really think of California's COVID restrictions. Thanksgiving alone is too much even for someone like me. I'm secular, I'm a loner, I don't keep in touch with many family members. But a family holiday alone ( alone together is nonsense) is too strange even for me. A month and a half in quarantine last spring was tolerable because I was ill and too tired to do much after work. Summer and fall, I rehabbed my garage. Now? I ruminate over the sort of things that get worse when they're picked at.  I spent my first Thanksgiving in Indiana with a friend and her family and subsequent ones with a few members from my meetup group. This year, I'll be at a cousin's house. The weather in Cleveland, where she lives, is supposed to dry--something of a Thanksgiving miracle.  Risks? I'm about as likely to die of COVID as I am to get shot in Indianapolis: a few chances in ten thousand, at most. I don't have risk factors like diabetes
