CDC Stops Accepting Injury Reports For COVID-19 Vaccines

Portal shows that from vaccine rollout to Sept. 2022, over 3.3 million people reported adverse health impacts

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stopped collecting reports for adverse events related to COVID-19 vaccines.

Until June 30, the agency accepted reports through its website v-safe. Now, the website displays a generic message advising that the CDC has finished collecting data on COVID-19 vaccines.

As reported by attorney and journalist Megan Redshaw, “The agency provided no explanation for its decision.” She added, “It did not convene its panel of vaccine advisors to determine whether this was a good idea, publicize the decision on its social media channels, or provide a press release for the corporate media to spin.”

However, a statement from the CDC says that a new version of v-safe is being developed, though the agency did not indicate when the portal will be active.

According to a CDC brochure, the v-safe program was a post-vaccination health check to monitor the safety of COVID-19 vaccines. The data gleaned through the programs show a large number of vaccinated people experienced adverse events attributable to the vaccine.

The v-safe portal shows that just through September 2022, more than 10.1 million people completed over 150 million health surveys regarding their experience after receiving a COVID vaccine. 

The Austin-based nonprofit Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) presents CDC data obtained in September 2022 in a dashboard that shows about 3.3 million v-safe users reported over 6.4 million adverse health impacts.

Redshaw explains:

More than 1.2 million people could not perform normal activities after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, 1.3 million missed school or work, and 0.8 million needed medical care.

Approximately 71,299,666 symptoms were reported following COVID-19 vaccination, including pain, fatigue, headaches, joint pain, and abdominal pain. That’s 1.4 symptoms per person who used the app. In case you weren’t aware, joint pain is a clear indicator of an inflammatory response.

Finally, 751,947 people needed medical care after getting a vaccine that was supposed to prevent them from needing medical care. An alarming 65.5% of children under the age of 3 were taken to urgent care, and 9.1% of children were hospitalized—which is pure insanity when you think about the fact kids are not at risk of experiencing severe COVID-19 in the first place.

While the CDC is no longer taking reports of vaccine injuries, the agency has advised that the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) will still receive reports, though VAERS is more cumbersome, which has led to an underreporting of vaccine injuries, according to research dating back to 2007.
