An official tally of suspected side effects resulting from Covid vaccination in Sweden has surpassed 30,000, with the majority of cases occurring in people inoculated with AstraZeneca’s shot.
According to the Swedish Medical Products Agency, as of last week, the Scandinavian nation had received 31,844 reports of adverse reactions linked to the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines. Sweden is currently offering three variants of the drug. There are currently 2,103 reports of side effects from the Moderna shot, while the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine has been associated with 9,117 health issues. But the number of suspected adverse reactions from the two shots seems relatively small when compared to the 19,961 reports linked to AstraZeneca’s Vaxzevria.
The most common side effects for all three drugs were fever and headache. Other reported adverse reactions included nausea, joint pain, and dizziness.

The UK Government’s reporting system for COVID vaccine adverse reactions from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency released their latest report yesterday, June 10, 2021.
The report covers data collected from December 9, 2020, through June 2, 2021, for the three experimental COVID “vaccines” currently in use in the U.K. from Pfizer, AstraZeneca, and Moderna.
They report a total of 1,295 deaths and 922,596 injuries recorded following the experimental COVID injections.
Here are the breakdowns from the three shots:

Health Impact News
We wish to notify you of our grave concerns regarding all proposals to administer COVID-19 vaccines to children. Recently leaked Government documents suggested that a COVID-19 vaccine rollout in children over 12 years old is already planned for September 2021, and the possibility of children as young as 5 years old being vaccinated in the summer in a worst-case scenario.1
We have been deeply disturbed to hear several Government and SAGE representatives calling in the media for the COVID-19 vaccine rollout to be “turning to children as fast as we can”.2 Teaching materials circulated to London schools contain emotionally loaded questions and inaccuracies3. In addition, there has been disturbing language used by teaching union leaders, implying that coercion of children to accept the COVID-19 vaccines through peer pressure in schools was to be encouraged, despite the fact that coercion to accept a medical treatment is against UK and International Laws and Declarations.4 Rhetoric such as this is irresponsible and unethical, and encourages the public to demand the vaccination of minors with a product still at the research stage and about which no medium- or long-term effects are known, against a disease which presents no material risk to them. A summary of our reasons is given below and a more detailed fully referenced explanation is available.5
Risks and benefits in medical treatments
Vaccines, like any other medical treatment, come with varied risks and benefits. Therefore, we must consider each product, individually, on its merits, and specifically for which patients or sections of the population is the risk/benefit ratio acceptable. For COVID-19 vaccines, the potential benefits are clear for the elderly and vulnerable, however, for children, the balance of benefit and risk would be quite different. We are raising these concerns as part of an informed debate, which is a vital part of the proper, scientific process. We must ensure that there is no repeat of any past tragedies which have occurred especially when vaccines are rushed to market. For example, the swine flu vaccine, Pandemrix, rolled out following the pandemic of 2010, resulted in over one thousand cases of narcolepsy, a devastating brain injury, in children and teenagers, before being withdrawn.6 Dengvaxia, a new vaccine against Dengue, was also rolled out to children ahead of the full trial outcomes, and 19 children died of possible antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) before the vaccine was withdrawn.7 We must not risk a repeat of this with the COVID-19 vaccines, which would not only impact on the children and families affected, but would also have a hugely damaging effect on vaccination uptake in general.
No medical intervention should be introduced on a ‘one size fits all’ basis, but instead should be fully assessed for suitability according to the characteristics of the age cohort and of the individuals concerned, weighing up the risk versus benefit profile for each cohort and the individuals within a group. This approach was outlined last October, by the head of the Government Vaccine Task Force, Kate Bingham, who said “We just need to vaccinate everyone at risk. There’s going to be no vaccination of people under 18. It’s an adult-only vaccine, for people over 50, focusing on health workers and care home workers and the vulnerable.”8
Children do not need vaccination for their own protection
Healthy children are at almost no risk from COVID-19, with risk of death as low as 1 in 2.5 million9. No previously healthy child under the age of 15 died during the pandemic in the UK and admissions to hospital or intensive care are exceedingly rare10 with most children having no or very mild symptoms. Although Long-Covid has been cited as a reason for vaccinating children, there is little hard data. It appears less common and much shorter-lived than in adults and none of the vaccine trials have studied this outcome11 12. The inflammatory condition, PIMS, was listed as a potential adverse effect in the Oxford AstraZeneca children’s trial13. Naturally acquired immunity will give broader and better lasting immunity than vaccination14. Indeed, many children will already be immune15. Individual children at very high risk can already receive vaccination on compassionate grounds16.
Children do not need vaccination to support herd immunity
Already, two thirds of the adult population have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine17. Models that assume vaccination of children is required to reach herd immunity have failed to account for the proportion who had immunity prior to March 2020 and those who have acquired it naturally18. Recent modelling suggested that the UK had achieved the required herd immunity threshold on 12 April 2021.19
Children do not transmit SARS-CoV-2 as readily as adults, moreover adults living or working with young children are at lower risk of severe COVID-1920. Schools have not been shown to be the focus on spread to the community, teachers have a lower risk of COVID-19 than other working age adults21.
Short-term safety concerns
As of 13th May, the MHRA22 has received a total of 224,544 adverse events, including 1,145 deaths in association with SARS-CoV-2 vaccines. Reports of strokes due to cerebral venous thromboses were initially in low numbers but as awareness increased, many more reports led to the conclusion that AstraZeneca vaccine should not be used for adults under 40 years of age and this unpredicted finding has also led to the suspension of the Oxford AstraZeneca children’s trial.
Similar events have been noted with Pfizer & Moderna vaccines on the US adverse reporting system (VAERS)23 and it is likely that this is a class effect related to production of spike protein. New UK guidelines on managing Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT)24 include all COVID-19 vaccines in their advice. The possibility of further unexpected safety issues cannot be ruled out. In Israel, where the vaccines have been widely rolled out to young people and teenagers, the Pfizer vaccine has been linked to several cases of myocarditis in young men25 and concerns have been raised about reports of altered menstrual cycles and abnormal bleeding in young women following the vaccine.26
Most concerning with regard to possible vaccination of children, is that there have now been a number of deaths associated with vaccination reported to VAERS in the US, despite the vaccines only being given to children within trials and a very recent rollout to 16-17 year olds27.
Long-term safety concerns
All Phase 3 COVID-19 vaccine trials are ongoing and not due to conclude until late 2022/early 2023. The vaccines are, therefore, currently experimental with only limited short-term and no long-term adult safety data available. In addition, many are using a completely new mRNA vaccine technology, which has never previously been approved for use in humans28. The mRNA is effectively a pro-drug and it is not known how much spike protein any individual will produce. Potential late-onset effects can take months or years to become apparent. The limited children’s trials undertaken to date are totally underpowered to rule out uncommon but severe side effects.
Children have a lifetime ahead of them, and their immunological and neurological systems are still in development, making them potentially more vulnerable to adverse effects than adults. A number of specific concerns have been raised already, including autoimmune disease and possible effects on placentation and fertility.29 A recently published paper raised the possibility that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines could trigger prion-based, neurodegenerative disease30. All potential risks, known and unknown, must be balanced against risks of COVID-19 itself, so a very different benefit/risk balance will apply to children than to adults.
There is important wisdom in the Hippocratic Oath which states, “First do no harm”. All medical interventions carry a risk of harm, so we have a duty to act with caution and proportionality. This is particularly the case when considering mass intervention in a healthy population, in which situation there must be firm evidence of benefits far greater than harms. The current, available evidence clearly shows that the risk versus benefit calculation does NOT support administering rushed and experimental COVID-19 vaccines to children, who have virtually no risk from COVID-19, yet face known and unknown risks from the vaccines. The Declaration of the Rights of the Child states that, “the child, by reason of his physical and mental immaturity, needs special safeguards and care,
including appropriate legal protection”.31 As adults we have a duty of care to protect children from unnecessary and foreseeable harm.
We conclude that it is irresponsible, unethical and indeed, unnecessary, to include children under 18 years in the national COVID-19 vaccine rollout. Clinical trials in children also pose huge ethical dilemmas, in light of the lack of potential benefit to trial participants and the unknown risks. The end of the current Phase 3 trials should be awaited as well as several years of safety data in adults, to rule out, or quantify, all potential adverse effects.
We call upon our governments and the regulators not to repeat mistakes from history, and to reject the calls to vaccinate children against COVID-19. Extreme caution has been exercised over many aspects of the pandemic, but surely now is the most important time to exercise true caution – we must not be the generation of adults that, through unnecessary haste and fear, risks the health of children.

“TGA has confirmed that his illness is a direct result of the AstraZeneca vaccine.”
“The TGA has today confirmed that this case (together with 4 cases from other states) has been assessed as TTS, likely to be linked to the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.”
“The five reported cases include a 74-year-old man and a 51-year-old woman in Victoria and a 64-year-old woman from Western Australia and increased the total number Australian TTS cases, following an AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, to 11 out of some 1.4 million administered doses.”
A five-month-old baby has tragically died after becoming seriously ill within hours of his mother receiving a dose of the experimental Pfizer / BioNTech Covid vaccine.
The incident was reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Recording System (the USA’s version of the MHRA Yellow Card scheme in the UK) on the 4th April by the clinician who had attempted to save the life of the baby just a couple of weeks earlier.

April 19, 2021 (updated April 20, 2021)
VIRGINIA, USA — Just when you thought this whole COVID-19 “vaccine” agenda couldn’t go any lower, it has now set a new precedent.
Pfizer and Moderna are both running clinical trials for their experimental mRNA shots on 11,000 children as young as six months old. Both trials began in mid-March. Moderna calls its study KidCOVE. Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca are also using children as guinea pigs. These companies have no moral fiber and are driven solely by profits. That is a given. But the parents are something beyond surreal.

Mr. Jack Last
STOWMARKET, SUFFOLK — Mr. Jack Last had a pilot license, traveled everywhere from New Zealand to Antarctica, and was a scuba diver. His life was tragically cut short because of yet another coincidence.
Mr. Last received the experimental AstraZeneca viral vector shot on March 30, according to The Sun U.K. He suffered from excruciating headaches thereafter, which forced him to check into A&E at West Suffolk Hospital on April 9. His condition worsened, prompting doctors to transfer him to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge. But they could do nothing to save the “fit and healthy” young man, as described by his family. He died on April 20. // Click on the link for the rest.

About twelve hours ago I passed a sort of personal milestone: I found, and read, an ecstatic Facebook post from the twentieth person I know who has received a dose of one of those experimental drugs the U.S. government, at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars of our money, is trying to persuade us to turn loose on our immune systems.
ILION, WEST ATHENS — AstraZeneca crimes against humanity continue as another victim dies in Europe shortly after the shot.
A 65-year-old woman received the first dose of the AstraZeneca viral vector shot at the Ilion Health Centre on or around March 29, according to Skai News in Piraeus, Greece. She waited the customary 20 minutes to ensure there were no immediate side effects.

As mass vaccination campaigns with experimental COVID injections now move on to the next demographic populations after beginning with senior citizens in assisted care facilities, and the healthcare workers in those facilities, the next targeted groups are educators.
We have seen multiple reports, for example, in the U.S. of entire school districts having to close down following a mass COVID injection campaign, as so many people get sick after the injections that there have not been enough employees in some school districts to hold classes right away following these massive injections.
Last week, I was informed of 3 deaths among faculty following COVID injections in one school district in Portland. But with nothing printed in the media and social media accounts silenced, I could not get collaborating evidence to publish those stories.
The Italian press, however, has now reported another death following the AstraZeneca COVID injection, a young professor from Gela, Italy. This follows our report from last week about 31-year-old Ilaria Pappa, a professor from Ischia, Italy, that The COVID Blog reported.
Thanks to the UK Column. A must listen. What stands out as seen elsewhere, is the initial denial by the authorities about any connection to the injection. EWR (Thanks to the robinwestenra blog for this link).

Nicola knows all too well that vaccines have dangerous side effects. Her fit, healthy, 58 year old husband had the Oxford vaccine (first jab) and very soon after was very ill. He is in hospital and was diagnosed with suspected Transvers Myelitis. This is now re-diagnosed as Guillain-Barre syndrome. As her husband struggles to breathe and cannot walk, he is isolated without visitors on a neurology ward, with many other vaccine adverse reaction cases. Nicola says people need to be told the harsh reality about the dangerous side effects of vaccines, and asks “Why were we not told?”

A Norwegian physician and professor of medicine at Oslo University Hospital, Pål Andre Holme, held a press conference earlier today to announce the results of their investigation into three healthcare workers under the age of 50 in Norway who developed blood clots following the AstraZeneca experimental vaccine, resulting in the death of one of them.
Dr. Holme confirmed that the AstraZeneca vaccine was the cause of the blood clots.
Chief physician and professor Pål Andre Holme told Norwegian papers on Thursday, just hours before the EMA was set to release the findings of its promised “safety review” (which was conducted even more hastily than the initial vaccine studies), that he has a new theory about what caused the reactions in the health workers, and unfortunately, per Holme, the AstraZeneca jab acted as the trigger.
“The reason for the condition of our patients has been found,” chief physician and professor Pål Andre Holme announced to Norwegian national newspaper VG today.

Following reports of people developing blood clots shortly after receiving a dose of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine, Germany, France, Italy and Spain have joined a growing list of countries to suspend use of the drug, pending a full investigation. While the decision to pause the rollout of the vaccine is highly disputed – the World Health Organization and the European Medicines Agency have all advised against it – there’s no argument this couldn’t have happened at a worse time.

Two items have come to light regarding the refusal by insurance companies to insure. This is on top of governments absolving the Pharmaceutical companies producing the injections from any liability. And we are still expected to willingly receive the jab? This is like putting your nearest and dearest on a flimsy raft without life jackets & pushing them out onto the ocean with a hurricane brewing on the horizon.
Regarding the blood clots/AstraZeneca vax issue … in spite of the news here of certain countries suspending its use because of the issue, NZ mainstream news continues to assure us there is no connection. Another coincidence I gather? EWR
Here are two related posts from C-o-v-1-9 V@cc Reacts and News New Zealand

Australian Doctors, nurses and pharmacists who spread COVID anti-vaccination claims will face harsh penalties, including being stripped of their ability to practise, by the medical watchdog. The national medical boards and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulatory Agency (AHPRA) released a joint directive warning healthcare practitioners that they risk regulatory action if they spout false or deceptive misinformation to patients or on social media that could undermine the national vaccination program as the AstraZeneca vaccine rollout begins.There is no place for anti-vaccination messages in professional health practice, and any promotion of anti-vaccination claims including on social media, and advertising may be subject to regulatory action,” spokesman for the medical boards and Pharmacy Board chairman Brett Simmonds said.I ask myself, “what constitutes anti vaccine messages”? Does this law prevent medical personnel from participating in a genuine “informed consent” process in their practice? If they have concerns about the vaccine and their patient asks them questions….does this law prohibit them from sharing their medical concerns? Can they discuss with patients anything relating to…
*there is no long term safety data
*clinical trials are continuing until 2023…but vaccines are being administered globally “in the meantime”.
*serious injuries and deaths occurring within hours or a few days of receiving the vaccination are mounting.
*the mRNA delivery platform has never been used in human vaccination before.
*there are questions and concerns about the potential for Antibody Dependent Enhancement (a worsening of disease when you are exposed to the wild virus having had the vaccine).
*there is NO SAFETY data for use during pregnancy, auto immune disease, breast feeding.
*there is NO SAFETY data looking at any potential risk of vaccination in combination with pre existing pharmaceuticals being taken.
*there is NO DATA confirming that this vaccine will stop you from contracting Covid 19, OR TRANSMITTING it to someone else.
How do you do your job to “first do no harm”, and remain open, honest and able to discuss and advise on an individual “risk/benefit” basis, when you are gagged and your medical license is threatened, for doing so. This is serious and dangerous.

The UK Government’s reporting system for COVID vaccine adverse reactions from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency released their latest report today, March 4, 2021.
The report covers data collected from December 9, 2020, through February 21, 2021, for the two experimental COVID vaccines currently in use in the U.K. from Pfizer and AstraZeneca.
They report a total of 460 deaths and 243,612 injuries.
For the COVID-19 mRNA Pfizer- BioNTech vaccine analysis they report:
Countries like the U.S., UK, Israel, Saudi Arabia and others have their own regulatory process for granting emergency use approval for vaccines and other drugs, but those countries that lack the necessary regulatory framework rely on WHO to vet vaccines.
WHO’s approval of the vaccines produced by AstraZeneca-SKBio (Republic of Korea) and the Serum Institute of India paves the way for 300 million doses of AstraZeneca to reach 145 countries in the first half of 2021, through Bill Gates’ COVAX program.
But while WHO is moving forward, other countries are hitting pause on AstraZeneca amid ongoing reports of side effects and lack of efficacy.
(NaturalHealth365) As COVID-19 vaccine trials continue speeding along, a major pharmaceutical company leading the way is facing heat yet again for subjecting volunteers to these fast-tracked vaccines.
Internal papers from AstraZeneca reveal another victim who has developed a rare and serious condition affecting the nervous system after getting treated with the investigational drug. Of course, AstraZeneca representatives say it’s, “unlikely to be associated with the vaccine.”
But, this news certainly has many people wondering: how long will these trials continue to be allowed to go on?
Is there an echo in here? Earlier this month, we reported that AstraZeneca paused its UK COVID-19 vaccine trial because a volunteer experienced serious neurological symptoms consistent with a rare inflammatory disease called transverse myelitis. Officials admitted the victim had been injected with the investigational vaccine and not a placebo.
Later, an AstraZeneca spokeswoman said the female participant also happened to have undiagnosed multiple sclerosis, which she claimed had nothing to do with the drug. The phase 3 vaccine trial subsequently resumed.
Now, reports reveal a SECOND female participant has come down with transverse myelitis. She developed symptoms after getting a follow-up dose of the vaccine.
Two cases of a rare and serious neurological condition occurring in the same drug trial – and yet we’re supposed to believe what AstraZeneca says, that the illnesses were ‘unlikely to be related’ to the vaccine.
Tell us again why we have to furiously develop a new vaccine and vaccinate the majority of the population before we can get back to “normal” – despite the fact that Dr. Anthony Fauci and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) keep hinting that the novel coronavirus isn’t as deadly as the media firestorm wants people to think it is?
Updated on September 10, the CDC presents on their website five of their “COVID-19 Pandemic Planning Scenarios.” The CDC claims these aren’t predictions but rather simply to “advance public health preparedness and planning.” Yet they label the fifth of their scenarios as their “Current Best Estimate” for how COVID-19 is impacting the country.
Here’s what the CDC says is the current BEST estimate about the infection fatality rate (IFR) of COVID-19:
Infection fatality rate refers to the total number of deaths divided by all the people who have the given infection, whether they have symptoms or not. This is in contrast to case fatality rate, which is the total number of deaths divided by the people who have clinical symptoms of the disease.
Those aren’t typos, by the way:
The CDC’s current best estimate is that the IFR for COVID-19 is 0.005 to 0.054 for some of the most “at risk” age groups. This is a lot lower than the IFR for the seasonal flu!
Just read a section from a paper published in March of this year in the New England Journal of Medicine, co-authored by Dr. Anthony Fauci himself:
“If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases [of COVID-19] is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.”
As other sources have pointed out, Dr. Fauci and colleagues misspoke here: they should have used the terminology “infection fatality rate” rather than case fatality rate. Regardless, the implications are shocking.
And sure, lots has changed since March 2020, but even so, the U.S. government’s “current best estimate” is still directly in line with Fauci’s hypothesis … yet here we are: many places still on lockdown and our country being told that only a hastily developed vaccine (for a virus which may be less deadly than the seasonal flu) can save us.
The question remains: do our current circumstances justify the kind of response being put forth by so-called “health experts?” Or, is there another agenda being played out on the general public?
