Adverse Events Anecdotes: speaking louder than the data
With this incredible corollary graph:
So that graph looks incredibly scary, doesn’t it? But maybe it’s not telling the full story. The article you linked has an inset that was apparently added after it was first posted. I’m going to try to post a photo below (and twitter link to discussion) that shows that this plot may be very misleading. The poster claims that there is always a large spike in this category for recent deaths and that over the time deaths are reclassified into other categories.
Don’t understand this has to be a tradeoff between old and young.
Don’t understand why the word ‘vaccine’ is magic – it’s not.
Pretty fun series of videos and personal accounts from the now deleted facebook group tracking adverse events from the vaccine.
I posted this on a different thread but thought i should post it on this thread. This was my adverse advent. I had my second AZ Jab on the 10th of June.
On the 10th of June 2021, I went to receive my 2nd dose of the AstraZeneca Vaccine. I received the first one on the 22nd March without any major undue reaction, so I had no real worries about receiving the second one. After 10 minutes of receiving the Vaccine, I had tingling in my arm, similar to the tingling I had when I had Guillain Barre Virus, I let the doctor who administered the Vaccine know and at this point they took my blood pressure, and it was 147/84 they informed me that I needed to wait a bit longer. I already had a 30-minute wait period because of my self-declared medical history.
A further 20 minutes went by, and I felt like my throat was closing over, which was similar to my previous anaphylactic reaction to contrast. I again informed the clinic, of feeling like my throat was closing over and they took my blood pressure again, it was 180/100, which they attributed to stress or putting the cuff on the arm where I had the injection. At this point they called the Ambulance, they continued to monitor my blood pressure whilst I waited for the Ambulance. I was transported to GV Health and although I wasn’t admitted to the base, I spent 6 hours in emergency.
It was whilst I was the Hospital that my rash developed where I was administered antihistamine and an anti-nausea medication. When I was reporting this information on the TGA website, I read on the that it has been reported that people have developed Guillain Barre Virus. Which is a neurological condtion (that I had 15 years ago), it is a serious condition, which causes your immune system to attack itself but you don’t hear the media talk about this condition and I am wondering if possibly my immune system recognised previous symptoms of this virus, and this is what caused this immune response to the Vaccine and I received immunotherapy for this condition. My adverse event wasn’t treated very seriously at the hospital, I have reported it to the relevant authorities. I basically get told that i have full immunity so i shouldn’t worry. What i don’t know is what will happen if i have to get a booster shot.
The best i have been told is I might need to go to an immunologist to have a consultation.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating the case of a 13-year-old Saginaw County boy who died in his sleep three days after getting his second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine in mid-June.
The county health department confirmed the investigation, telling the Free Press that the medical examiner’s office conducted an autopsy and the death was reported to the state health department as well as the CDC.
The boy, Jacob Clynick, lived in Zilwaukee and had just completed eighth grade when he got his second dose of the Pfizer vaccine June 13 at a Walgreens store, said Tammy Burages, his aunt.
Jacob was healthy, she said, and had no known underlying medical conditions. He was looking forward to starting classes in the fall as a freshman at Carrollton High School.
