Facebook Posts Back Up VAERS Reports Linking COVID Vaccines to Injuries, Including Death

Many VAERS reports give detailed pictures of adverse events that have occurred.

As the number of reported injuries and deaths following COVID vaccines continues to climb in VAERS, the CDC’s official vaccine adverse event reporting system, social media users also point to Facebook posts by people who enthusiastically got the vaccine, but have since died.

Facebook users have identified people who posted having a COVID-19 vaccination and then dying within hours.

The most recent Facebook post of 39-year-old Brittany Hall Perez of Atlanta on Jan. 12, for example, shows her wearing a mask while holding up a vaccination card with the slogan, “SAVE LIVES. Say Yes to COVID-19 vaccine,” and framing her photo. An obituary for Brittany Hall Perez of Owens Cross Roads, Alabama on Tribute Archive announced the death of the mother of two young girls on Jan. 13, but does not say how she died.

Other Facebook users have pointed to the latest post of Julie Schlachter Splattstoesser, a 50-year-old from Grand Island, Neb., whose Facebook page features the motto “The love of a family is life’s greatest blessing” and shows her most recent post on Dec. 31, 2020 with her husband and a heart-shaped logo saying, “I GOT MY COVID-19 VACCINE!”

An obituary in The Grand Island Independent states that Splattstoesser, the mother of five sons, died “unexpectedly” on Dec. 31, 2020. She had been A Clinical Research Coordinator at CHI Health Cancer Treatment Center.

A report from the government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Report System (VAERS) describes a 50-year-old Nebraska woman who died Dec. 31 on the same day that she received a Moderna vaccine after suffering from “cardio-respiratory arrest.” [918518]

A few deaths following vaccinations have been reported in the mainstream media. A celebrated 68-year-old Detroit news anchor died suddenly the day after she received a COVID-19 vaccine, CBS Detroit reported. Karen Hudson-Samuel, who had been a Detroit media celebrity for decades, was found dead at her home by her husband, though the cause of her death is still unknown.

“We suspect it may have just been a stroke, but because of the normal side effects of the vaccine it may have masked that. Hopefully, we’ll know soon from the autopsy report,” her husband, Cliff Samuels, told the news outlet.

A man in his 70s collapsed 25 minutes after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine at the Javits Center in New York, KVOA News reported. He died later in hospital and New York health officials said he did not have an allergic reaction.

The Windsor Star reported that a woman’s death after the COVID-19 vaccination was being investigated but provided few details.

As of Feb. 12, 929 deaths, 616 life-threatening adverse events, 316 cases of permanent disability, and more than 5,000 hospitalizations and emergency room visits after COVID vaccinations were reported to VAERS, which is updated weekly.

“VAERS reports alone cannot be used to determine if a vaccine caused or contributed to an adverse event or illness,” according to the CDC VAERS website. Rather, it is considered to be a tool for detecting “signals” or patterns of significant problems with vaccines. Any healthcare worker, vaccine manufacturer or member of the public can submit a report to VAERS, so interpretation is limited.

Still, many VAERS reports give detailed pictures of adverse events that have occurred. For example, the 929 COVID-19 vaccination-associated reported deaths include information about the patient’s age, state and how long after vaccination their symptoms began as in the following samples:

  • A 58-year-old Washington woman took Pfizer’s first dose of COVID vaccine at about 9 a.m. on Jan. 4 at the medical center where she worked as a housekeeper and one hour later began to complain of nausea and feeling like she was going to pass out. By 3 p.m. that day, she “appeared tired and lethargic,” according to a VAERS report, and about 4 p.m. she “went into cardiac arrest and was unable to be revived.” [921768]
  • A 56-year-old man who worked at an extended care community facility in Florida received a second dose of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine on Jan. 12 and was found “unresponsive,” within one hour. He was pronounced “brain dead” the same day and died two days later. [944595]
  • A 58-year-old woman walked to her car 20 minutes after receiving the first Pfizer vaccine dose in the state of Virginia on Jan. 30. According to a VAERS report, she was leaning out of her car saying that she couldn’t breathe and began vomiting. She was administered two epi-pens and an epinephrine gas but became unresponsive shortly after she was put in an ambulance, where a “large amount of fluid was suctioned from the patient’s lungs,” and she was pronounced dead at the emergency department. [989006]
  • A 23-year-old New York man received a first dose of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine on Jan. 17. “Patient developed 104.4 temp approximately 48 hours after being given the vaccine. I treated him with antibiotics, IV fluids, cooling methods,” stated one report filed by a physician. “Unfortunately, he suffered a cardiac arrest on 1/21/21 in the early morning and expired.” [960841]
  • A 28-year-old New Jersey man was due for his second dose of Pfizer’s vaccine Jan. 11 but was found unresponsive at his workplace in the hospital. His pupils were “fixed and dilated,” according to a VAERS report, and attempts to revive him were unsuccessful. [943397]
  • A 33-year-old woman died on Jan. 28 following her first dose of Pfizer’s vaccine. The report filed by a physician stated that “16 hours after receiving the vaccine (the) patient was found dead at her home.” [1000669]

  1. Adverse reactions are normal with any vaccine or antibiotic. One of two of the most common antibiotics nearly killed me a few years ago …. (the experts didn’t agree which). I avoid antibiotics if I can.

    I understand that adverse reactions between 1% and 1.5% are typical. Those adverse reactions vary from very mild (headache, muscular soreness and the like) to hospitalisation and in a few cases, death.

    Some 225 million covid vaccinations have already been given worldwide. Millions of adverse reactions (mostly minor) would be expected. There have been more than 60 million Covid vaccinations in the US. 1000 deaths according to your post (some of which may be concurrent with but not due to the vaccines) is 1 in 60,000 (so far there is no evidence of deadly longer term effects). To put that into perspective, more than 1 person in 660 has died from Covid in the US (Population 330 million, deaths 500,000+) 100 times more than the suspected deaths from side effects.

    Worldwide, the notified cases are around 113 million (likely underreported) and the death toll 2.5 million (also likely underreported).

    So, mortality rate among those infected is more than 1 in 50, far higher than in the rich countries like US, UK and EU.

    With more than 200 million vaccinations there is now heaps of primary data on both the vaccines and their outcomes. Research from Edinburgh and Cambridge (about to be published) shows the efficacy of Pfizer and AstraZeneca to be around 80% and protection for the elderly to be impressive. (Chris Smith on RNZ Kim Hill this morning) There’s an interesting trial approved in UK where 90 healthy volunteers (18-30 age group) are being deliberately infected with Covid in a carefully controlled environment (Guardian, Wapo and other news outlets).Such trials will give more valuable information on the incubation of the bug and the illness it causes .

    On the flip side, the emerging New York Covid variant with 2 mutations that alter the Covid spike protein make or are likely to make the existing vaccines less effective. One of the mutations is present in the UK and South Africa variants. They variants are rapidly increasing as a proportion of total cases which suggests that vaccines will need to be updated regularly and that Covid vaccination will become an annual exercise (like flu shots – according to WHO between 250,000 and 500,000 people die from the flu each year among an estimated 3-5 million cases of severe flu despite all the vaccination efforts in the rich countries). On the plus side, the incidence of flu has dropped dramatically over the past year due to improved hygiene, less travel, and fewer close contacts.

    I think your post is skewed to give the impression that vaccination is unsafe and ineffective and is not supported by the available evidence.

    Cheers

  2. I agree with the British Medical Journal, Lowell, that many of the Covid studies are being skewed for political reasons and shouldn’t be taken at face value. https://www.collective-evolution.com/2020/11/18/british-medical-journal-editor-argues-medical-political-complex-is-corrupt-suppressing-science/

    They also dispute the efficacy claims for both the Pfizer and Modern vaccine, arguing that the true efficacy and safety profile won’t be known until the drug companies agree to release the data (which they have refused thus far): https://blogs.bmj.com/bmj/2020/11/26/peter-doshi-pfizer-and-modernas-95-effective-vaccines-lets-be-cautious-and-first-see-the-full-data/
