The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) Results currently lists 44 deaths in a data search for adverse events associated with all COVID vaccines administered in the United States.
Also called CDC Wonder, the system, updated every Friday, currently lists 6741 total events. Deaths make up 0.65% of this total. Also reported are 57 anaphylactic reactions (a possibly life-threatening allergic reaction), 0.85% of total events reported.
The most frequently reported events associated with COVID vaccines are:
- Headache, 1512 events, 22.43% of total events
- Fatigue, 1132 events, 16.79% of total events
- Dizziness, 1097 events, 16.27% of total events
- Chills, 987 events, 14.64% of total events
- Nausea, 986 events, 14.63% of total events
- Pyrexia (raised body temperature, fever), 958 events, 14.21% of total events
- Pain, 945 events, 14.02% of total events
As multiple symptoms may be included in each report, the percentage of total events will be over 100% (the system currently lists 29,081 symptoms reported, 431.40% of total events).
The CDC lists certain caveats with the data, including the following statements:
“VAERS accepts reports of adverse events and reactions that occur following vaccination. Healthcare providers, vaccine manufacturers, and the public can submit reports to VAERS. While very important in monitoring vaccine safety, VAERS reports alone cannot be used to determine if a vaccine caused or contributed to an adverse event or illness. The reports may contain information that is incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental, or unverifiable. Most reports to VAERS are voluntary, which means they are subject to biases. This creates specific limitations on how the data can be used scientifically. Data from VAERS reports should always be interpreted with these limitations in mind.”
