Blood Clots With Concurrent Low Platelets
The MHRA has undertaken a thorough review into UK reports of an extremely rare specific type of blood clot in the brain, known as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis occurring together with low levels of platelets following vaccination with the COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca. It is also considering other blood clotting cases alongside low platelet levels.
This ongoing scientific review has concluded that the evidence of a link with COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca is stronger and an announcement was made on 7 April 2021 with a further statement on 7 May. We have continued to publish the latest breakdown of all cases of these extremely rare side effects on a weekly basis. In this report we provide updated information on cases received up to 18 August 2021. Our advice remains unchanged.
Anyone who experienced cerebral or other major blood clots occurring with low levels of platelets after their first vaccine dose of COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca should not have their second dose. Anyone who did not have these side effects should come forward for their second dose when invited.
The MHRA recently confirmed that the evidence to date does not suggest that the COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca causes venous thromboembolism without a low platelet count.
If you experience any of the following from around 4 days after vaccination should seek medical advice urgently:
Can Delta Infect Fully Vaccinated People
Yes, although vaccination still protects extremely well against severe disease and death. A study of a recent Delta-driven outbreak in Provincetown, Massachusetts, published in CDCs Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report last week, was pivotal to the agencys decision to reverse itself and advise fully vaccinated people to wear masks in indoor public places in areas where transmission is high, agency Director Rochelle Walensky said. In the Massachusetts outbreak, fully vaccinated people accounted for 74% of nearly 469 COVID-19 cases.
Strikingly, the study found that fully vaccinated people carried just as much virus in their noses and throats as the unvaccinated. Since then, a new, not-yet-peer-reviewed preprint from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, has reported similar findings.
Its not surprising that, at the time theyre diagnosed, fully vaccinated people might carry a large nasal load of a variant thats known to replicate rapidly, says Sixto Leal, who directs medical microbiology at UAB hospitals. Thats because although vaccines are excellent at generating blood-borne antibodies, they are not as good at generating a form of antibody that occupies the lining of the nose and throat. Theres a window of time when fast-replicating virus can enter , replicate like crazy in a very high amount, and symptoms, Leal says.
Lisa Shaw: Presenter’s Death Due To Complications Of Covid Vaccine
A radio presenter died due to complications from the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine, a coroner has found.
Lisa Shaw, who worked for BBC Radio Newcastle, died at the age of 44 in May after developing headaches a week after getting her first dose of the vaccine.
Newcastle coroner Karen Dilks heard Ms Shaw suffered blood clots in the brain which ultimately led to her death.
The inquest heard the condition linked to the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine was very rare.
The coroner said: “Lisa died due to complications of an AstraZeneca Covid vaccination.”
Ms Dilks said Ms Shaw was previously fit and well but concluded that it was “clearly established” that her death was due to a very rare “vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia”, a condition which leads to swelling and bleeding of the brain.
Given The Dire Situation I Wanted To Know What Is Keeping So Many From Getting Vaccinated So I Asked My Brother Why Won’t You Get A Vaccine It’s A Conversation Many Family Members Are Having
First of all, he doesn’t trust it. He’s worried about long-term effects years down the road.
I pointed out that all three U.S. vaccines went through rigorous clinical trials. Moderna was tested on 30,000 people, Pfizer on nearly 44,000, Johnson and Johnson on more than 39,000. Side effects, including pain at the injection site, headache, fatigue and nausea, were mild to moderate and resolved within a few days.
And since then, about 165 million Americans have been fully vaccinated. Long-term side effects are extremely unlikely, according to the CDC, because historically vaccine monitoring has shown side effects appear within six weeks.
A study out Wednesday, published by JAMA, showed that for every 1 million Americans vaccinated against COVID-19, only 60 developed heart problems. Complications were short-lived.
My brother, Chris Carroll, also says fully vaccinated people are getting breakthrough viruses, so why bother. The vaccinated can get COVID. Sen. Lindsey Graham announced this week he tested positive despite being vaccinated. But, as Graham pointed out, those with the vaccine generally have mild cases and are far less likely to die than the unvaccinated.
Hospitalized Or Fatal Covid
As of August 23, 2021, more than 171 million people in the United States had been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
During the same time, CDC received reports from 49 U.S. states and territories of 11,050 patients with COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough infection who were hospitalized or died.
*Patient had no symptoms of COVID-19 or their hospitalization or death was not COVID-related
Previous data on all vaccine breakthrough cases reported to CDC from JanuaryApril 2021 are available.
Claim: Cremations And Burial Rates Are No Higher Than Normal
Verdict: This is not correct. Across the UK, there was a sharp increase in cremations in 2020.
Over recent months, people have been sharing data from Freedom of Information Requests about cremations and burials in different local authorities across the UK.
They claim the figures are no higher than in previous years and question whether there are really any excess Covid deaths.
One widely shared example looks at data released by Birmingham City Council.
The council told us the figures initially provided in response to FOIs were wrong because of a glitch in the reporting process.
These suggested the 2020 figure was the lowest in the last six years.
But according to the corrected data, there were 8,316 burials and cremations in 2020, more than the previous year and just about the highest since 2009 .
We looked at the national picture on cremations, using figures from a charity which collects this data.
The Cremation Society has counted 70,000 more cremations in 2020 than in 2019.
We looked but couldn’t find national burial figures.
We also know that there have been more than 115,000 excess deaths – over and above the usual number at the time of year – in the UK since the outbreak began.
How Many Have Died From Covid Vaccine
TxBigfoot said:I go by what I’ve personally seen. I know relatively young, healthy people who have died of Covid. I stood beside my wife when my FIL was taken off of life support and died. Another person I know died last week from Covid, he was very anti vaccine.What I’m getting at is all of the people I know that have died from Covid were not vaccinated, all of the people I know that are vaccinated are ok.I don’t judge either way, mask, no mask, vaccine or not, whatever. I just hate hearing people downplay the severity of Covid and talk about the vaccine like it’s some conspiracy when I know that it does work, not 100% but it does work.
A guy I went to High School with just died of it.He was a fitness nut too. Ran 10 miles every day.Super fit for a guy 60yrs old. ZERO health issues.Anti- vaxxer. Anti gov big time.Became ill about a month ago. Dead last week.
After 1517211 Injuries And 9027 Recorded Vaccine Deaths In The Us Fda Gives Full Approval To Pfizer Covid

After 1,517,211 injuries and 9,027 deaths following the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines recorded in the U.S. Governments Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System , the FDA today gave full approval to the Pfizer COVID-19 injections for people over the age of 16.
Besides the U.S. VAERS, the British Yellow Card reporting system for injuries and deaths following COVID-19 vaccines reports 501 deaths and 293,779 injuries following Pfizer COVID-19 injections.
EudraVigilance, the European Union database of suspected drug reaction reports for COVID-19 vaccines, reports 10,616 deaths and 833,498 injuries following Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines.
Today is a historic day in the United States, because no pharmaceutical product linked to so many deaths and injuries during its trial period has ever before been approved by the FDA.
Just from Europe and the U.S., official government reporting systems list a total of 20,144 deaths and 2,644,488 adverse reactions following Pfizers injections.
We know that these reported numbers, directly from official government health organizations, are severely under-reported, as doctors and other medical personnel are pressured to NOT link these deaths and injuries to the COVID-19 shots.
So do you still believe that a worldwide eugenics program in place to reduce the worlds population is a conspiracy theory?
How To Interpret These Data
The number of COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough infections reported to CDC are an undercount of all SARS-CoV-2 infections among fully vaccinated persons, especially of asymptomatic or mild infections. National surveillance relies on passive and voluntary reporting, and data are not complete or representative. These surveillance data are a snapshot and help identify patterns and look for signals among vaccine breakthrough cases.
Information on patients with vaccine breakthrough infection who were hospitalized or died will continue to be updated. Studies are being conducted in multiple U.S. sites that will include information on all vaccine breakthrough infections regardless of clinical status to supplement the national surveillance.
People Die In Japan After Moderna Shots From Tainted Batch
At a news briefing, Ardern said that beginning August 31 most of the country will move to a level-three shut down, which allows businesses to fill online orders and do takeout services. Bars and restaurants remain closed, except for takeaways. Ardern said Auckland will remain under alert level 4, which requires all schools, offices and all businesses to be closed, with only essential services operational. Before this latest lockdown, the nations last stay-at-home orders were lifted in March. The government took the measures to stop the spread of the delta variant of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. New Zealands health service reported 70 new cases on Friday, bringing the total number of infections during this outbreak, which began this month, to 347. New Zealand has been a global leader in effectively controlling the spread of COVID-19. Some information for this report came from the Associated Press and Reuters.
Pentagon Pulls Trigger: Will Order All Troops To Get Covid Vaccine By Sept 15 Under Threat Of Court
Will the members of the military comply?
This full approval by the FDA will also now give some legal precedent for local health departments in every county of every state in the U.S. to start mandating COVID-19 vaccines as well.
But to enforce it, they will need armed support from law enforcement and/or the military, such as the National Guard.
Will they comply, or will America finally wake up and start resisting in mass?
I have seen little evidence for massive resistance to COVID mandates so far in the U.S., while in other countries people are now taking to the streets to protest.
One policeman in Canada has apparently gone public and stated that he would never enforce COVID vaccine mandates, and that there are hundreds of thousands of other law enforcement like him in Canada.
What about the United States??
What You Need To Know
- COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.
- Millions of people in the United States have received COVID-19 vaccines under the most intense safety monitoring in U.S. history.
- CDC recommends everyone 12 years and older get vaccinated as soon as possible to help protect against COVID-19 and the related, potentially severe complications that can occur.
- CDC, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration , and other federal agencies are monitoring the safety of COVID-19 vaccines.
- Adverse events described on this page have been reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System external icon.
- VAERS accepts reports of any adverse event following any vaccination.
- Reports of adverse events to VAERS following vaccination, including deaths, do not necessarily mean that a vaccine caused a health problem.
Serious adverse events after COVID-19 vaccination are rare but may occur.
For public awareness and in the interest of transparency, CDC is providing timely updates on the following serious adverse events of interest:
How Many Cases And Deaths Can The United States Expect In The Delta
Many computer models predict case counts will peak sometime between mid-August and early September. That peak may bring as many as 450,000 daily cases, according to forecasters at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington. IHMEs models have drawn controversy throughout the pandemic and other groups are more conservative: The COVID-19 Forecast Hub predicts the daily case count on 21 August will be somewhere between 29,000 and 176,000, using a range of estimates from 41 different models.
But all projections rely on assumptions that are moving targetssuch as mask wearing and vaccination behaviorand accuracy quickly diminishes the further out the forecast. We can probably expect to see cases continue to rise for the next 2 or 3 weeks at least. Beyond that, I think its challenging to predict, says David Dowdy, an infectious disease epidemiologist at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Claim: There Are Tens Of Thousands Of Unreported Deaths From The Covid
Verdict: These reports, which have been widely shared online, are not correct.
The starting point for these erroneous claims is a US government database called VAERS, where anyone in the US can report adverse effects after receiving a vaccine.
TikTok videos claim to show people how to find data relating to deaths from the Covid-19 vaccine on the VAERS website.
The video claimed that this search reported more than 51,000 results and evidence of a “cover-up”.
However, we spoke to the US Centers for Disease Control, who told us the methodology used to search for data in this video was wrong.
The correct figure of reported deaths among people who received a Covid-19 vaccine from December 14, 2020 through to July 19, 2021 is 6,207.
Importantly, the VAERS system is not designed to determine whether a vaccine caused a problem.
Cdc And Fda Data Show This Many People Died After A Covid
Recorded data co-managed by the CDC and FDA shows that this many people have sadly died after receiving a coronavirus vaccine.
Experts are saying that some data has been misinterpreted after a vaccine safety program data shows that more than 900 people have died after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.
The data comes from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System , which is monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration .
As of this past Sunday, the VARES system shows that 977 people have died after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine from both Moderna and Pfizer.
Dr. Arnold Monto, a professor of epidemiology and global public health at the University of Michigan, has said that there is no reason for anyone to be concerned, If you start looking at where the deaths are occurring post-vaccination, you find that theyre mainly in nursing homes.
Of the people that died in the state, half were seniors, and more than 33% of them were more than 80 years old. It should be noted, on the VARES website, its stated that vaccine deaths may not be directly caused by the vaccine.
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, the disclaimer states
Can Other Countries Delta Surges Offer Hints About What Will Happen In The United States
In India, where the Delta variant was first identified, a massive, Delta-driven wave began in late March and receded by late June, even though mask wearing was spotty and less than 1% of the population was vaccinated as the wave began. In the United Kingdom, a surge that began in early June peaked in mid-July and is now rapidly receding, although daily cases are still many times what they were before the Delta variant took over.
But assuming the U.S. surge will recede as quickly as the one in the United Kingdom did may be a mistake. In that country, vaccine uptake has been much higher than in the United States. Former CDC Director Tom Frieden, president of the nonprofit Resolve to Save Lives, cautioned yesterday in a tweet that the number of unvaccinated Americans could make the U.S. surge much deadlier than the United Kingdoms.
The US Covid surge continues, but hospitalizations are increasing far faster here than they ever did during the UK’s surge. With so many unvaccinated Americans, our surge will be MUCH deadlier.
Dr. Tom Frieden August 3, 2021
Data Collection And Analysis
Researchers from the RAND Corporation and Indiana University examined the effect of state vaccination campaigns on the number of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. The study estimates the number of lives saved during the first 5 months of the vaccination campaign in each of the 50 states and Washington, D.C.
Using Bloombergs COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker, the researchers measured the cumulative number of doses that each state administered weekly. They then obtained 2018 state population counts from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results program , and used them to calculate the number of doses per 100 people aged 16 years and older.
The team also obtained daily data on state-reported COVID-19 deaths from the New York Times database, using this information to calculate cumulative deaths per 100 adults in each state per week from December 21, 2020, to May 9, 2021.
The researchers statistically estimated the number of deaths that would have occurred from COVID-19 with no vaccination program and compared that number with the reported deaths from each state.
Reported Side Effects For Covid
Gathering reports of adverse events following immunisation is just the first step in determining whether or not the effect is related to the vaccine and whether a significant safety issue is involved. Learn more about how the TGA identifies and responds to safety issues.
In the week of 17-23 May 2021 we received 1609 AEFI reports for COVID-19 vaccines.
Covid Cases In Parts Of Missouri And Arkansas Surge To Levels Not Seen Since Winter
The upward trend in national statistics is being driven almost entirely by outbreaks in places with low vaccination rates, such as the Ozarks, Florida and parts of the Mountain West. Some counties, especially in Missouri and Arkansas, are recording more cases now than they did during the winter.
“Unvaccinated Americans account for virtually all recent COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths,” said Jeff Zients, the White House COVID-19 response coordinator. “Each COVID-19 death is tragic, and those happening now are even more tragic because they are preventable.”
More than 99% of recent deaths were among the unvaccinated, infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci said earlier this month on NBC’s Meet the Press, while Walensky noted on Friday that unvaccinated people accounted for over 97% of hospitalizations.
About 56% of the U.S. population has received at least one dose of the vaccine, but in many counties especially in rural America that number is under 20% despite the widespread availability of the vaccine.
Two Die In Japan After Shots From Suspended Moderna Vaccines

TOKYO, Aug 28 – Two people died after receiving Moderna Inc COVID-19 vaccine shots that were among lots later suspended following the discovery of contaminants, Japan’s health ministry said on Saturday.
The men in their 30s died this month within days of receiving their second Moderna doses, the ministry said in a release. Each had a shot from one of three manufacturing lots suspended on Thursday. The causes of death are being investigated.
Japan halted the use of 1.63 million Moderna doses shipped to 863 vaccination centres nationwide, more than a week after the domestic distributor, Takeda Pharmaceutical Co , received reports of contaminants in some vials. read more
“At this time, we do not have any evidence that these deaths are caused by the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine,” Moderna and Takeda said in a statement on Saturday. “It is important to conduct a formal investigation to determine whether there is any connection.”
The government has also said no safety or efficacy issues had been identified and the suspension of the three Moderna batches was a precaution.
Fumie Sakamoto, the infection control manager at St. Luke’s International Hospital in Tokyo, cautioned against drawing a connection between the shots and the fatalities reported on Saturday.
Tts Cases In Australia
Medical officers at the TGA continue to investigate suspected cases of TTS and share information with other medicines regulators. As previously reported, the TGA determines whether a report is likely to represent TTS by assessing cases against a consistent set of criteria, based on the case definitions established by the UKs Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency.
Since last weeks report, a further six reports of blood clots and low blood platelets have been assessed as confirmed TTS likely to be linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine. These cases were in two women from NSW , a 72-year-old male from WA, a 51-year-old woman from WA, a 73-year-old woman from Victoria and a 63-year-old man from Queensland.
In addition, there were three cases classified as probable this week. These cases were in an 85-year-old woman from NSW, a 62-year-old man from Victoria and a 76-year-old woman from Victoria.
This takes the total Australian reports of cases assessed as TTS following the AstraZeneca vaccine to 27 confirmed cases and six probable cases.
We have information about all but two cases at this stage:
17 have been discharged from hospital and are recovering
four have left hospital but require outpatient medical care
nine patients remain in hospital.
As previously reported, one case in a 48-year-old woman from NSW was unfortunately fatal.
Who Is Getting Breakthrough Covid Cases
According to the CDC, most of the severe breakthrough cases about 74% had been among seniors who were 65 years or older, reports.
- About 20% of the people who died from COVID-19 after a breakthrough case died from something other than COVID-19, though they had a breakthrough case when they died, according to .
Disadvantaged Older Workers Less Likely To Work From Home
25 August 2021
Those living in deprived areas are less likely to have switched to home working during the coronavirus pandemic. Those with poor health, poor well-being and lower levels of qualifications are also less likely to have switched to working from home.
Overall, the proportion of older workers planning to work from home after the pandemic is higher than the proportion who worked from home before the pandemic.
Working from home appears to benefit older workers and their employers, with older workers reporting improved productivity, well-being and work-life balance. Evidence suggests that working from home may enable older workers to retire later, having a positive impact on both the individual’s financial security and the wider economy.
While increased homeworking among older workers may benefit some, dissimilar opportunities to work remotely may reinforce existing inequalities.
Vaccines Prevented Nearly 140000 Covid
As of May 9, the U.S. COVID-19 vaccination campaign is associated with an estimated reduction of 139,393 pandemic deaths, according to an NIA-supported study published Aug. 18 in Health Affairs. While the rate and number of COVID-19 vaccinations varied among states, the RAND Corporation and Indiana University researchers concluded that these results underscore the need for policies and public health actions to expand vaccine administration to benefit larger populations, especially low-income and minority populations.
As of July 18, more than 4 million people died from COVID-19 worldwide, including more than 600,000 people in the United States. In addition to the devastating loss of life, there have been extensive social and economic costs that have worsened health disparities in low-income and minority populations. Between Dec. 11, 2020, and Feb. 27, 2021, three COVID-19 vaccines received emergency use approval by the Food and Drug Administration. During clinical trials, these vaccines were shown to be highly effective against COVID-19.
The researchers acknowledge some study limitations. For example, they could not distinguish the roles of vaccination from increases in natural immunity and social distancing policies on the numbers of COVID-19 deaths. Also, they did not look at the effects of the first and second vaccine doses and were not able to measure the effects on vulnerable subpopulations, such as the elderly or racial minorities.
