U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data turned over by court order shows healthcare workers and others who were first to get the mRNA COVID vaccines suffered an extraordinarily high rate of complications.
Among the earliest populations to get vaccinated, data withheld by the CDC showed 1-in-3 reported needing medical care, missing school or work, or the suffering an inability to “perform normal daily activities,” Just the News reported.
The CDC collected the data through V-Safe, described by the agency as a “smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins after you receive a COVID-19 vaccination.”
The Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) obtained the data through an ongoing Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the CDC.
Significantly, V-Safe failed to include chest pain and other cardiac symptoms that could indicate myocarditis and pericarditis in the survey checkboxes.
In June 2021, more than six months after the vaccine was rolled out, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) added a warning to the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine fact sheets of an increased risk of myocarditis, inflammation of the heart muscle, and pericarditis, inflammation of the tissue surrounding the heart.
The survey allowed such symptoms to be written in the form’s “other” field, but the omission from the checkboxes made the data harder to standardize.
Further, ICAN is still trying to get the CDC to turn over the written data, the organization’s lawyer, Aaron Siri, told Just the News.
Siri said the fact that the CDC didn’t prompt users to consider the adverse events is “one of the best and most compelling pieces of evidence supporting premeditated [wrongful] conduct.”
In a November 4 filing, ICAN said the CDC, “in dozens of publications, relied on the data from V-Safe to argue and support its recommendations regarding COVID-19 vaccination that upended the lives of tens of millions of Americans who refused to comply” with mandates.
Siri’s firm alone has heard from “thousands” claiming “serious injuries” from COVID vaccines.
V-Safe surveys also excluded seizures, Guillain-Barré syndrome, and other “adverse events of special interest” the CDC explicitly identified before deploying the system.
ICAN, Just the News reported, speculated the data “may run contrary to the recommendations [the CDC] pushed to deprive people of their jobs, their livelihoods, schooling, military careers,” and to the agency’s “claim that there was a low incidence of various serious issues, like tinnitus, myocarditis, and small fiber neuropathy, from this product.”
