68-Year-Old Dies After Anaphylactic Reaction to COVID Vaccine as CDC Continues to Ignore Inquiry Into Increasing Number of Deaths Data released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the number of injuries and deaths reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) following COVID vaccines showed that between Dec. 14, 2020 and March 19, 2021, there were 44,606 reports of adverse events, including 2,050 deaths and 7,095 serious injuries. In the U.S., 118.3 million COVID vaccine doses had been administered as of March 19. VAERS is the primary mechanism for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S. Reports submitted to VAERS require further investigation before a causal relationship can be confirmed. Every Friday, the CDC makes public all VAERS vaccine injury reports received as of the previous week. This week’s VAERS data included 2,306 reports of anaphylaxis. Fifty-five percent of anaphylaxis reports were attributed to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, 45% to Moderna and 1% to the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine, which was rolled out in the U.S. on March 2. As The Defender reported earlier this month, the J&J vaccine contains polysorbate 80, known to trigger allergic reactions. The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines contain polyethylene glycol (PEG), also known to trigger anaphylactic reactions. The latest news report of an anaphylactic reaction to a COVID vaccine was of a 68-year-old Kansas woman who died a day after receiving the vaccine. According to EMS dispatch records, the woman had an allergic reaction at a vaccine clinic site around 4 p.m. on Tuesday, KMBC reported. She had difficulty breathing and speaking and was injected with an EpiPen.
Woman raises questions after mom’s death certificate references vaccine. Experts warn about drawing conclusions A Chapel Hill woman who says her mother died of a stroke 48 hours after receiving the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine spoke to WRAL News about her concerns and the questions she has about her mother’s death. The state and a UNC doctor, though, warn about drawing any conclusions yet. Becca Ingle is understandably devastated after her mother’s sudden death two weeks ago. She says her mother was in good health, but started feeling very ill shortly after getting the vaccine. She wants to know if her mother’s death could be connected to the vaccine. The state is investigating this case and so is WRAL. As a college professor who worked in person with her students at Appalachian State University and spent lots of time caring for her two grandchildren, 63-year-old Virginia Ellington was counting the days until she could be vaccinated against COVID-19. “I have texts from her saying how excited she was to get it,” her daughter, Ingle, said. Ingle said her mother and father got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine on the morning of Monday, March 8, at the Watauga Health Center in Boone.
Why Is Everyone in Texas Not Dying? I’m sitting at a bar in Texas, surrounded by maskless people, looking at folks on the streets walking around like life is normal, talking with nice and friendly faces, feeling like things in the world are more-or-less normal. Cases and deaths attributed to Covid are, like everywhere else, falling dramatically. If you pay attention only to the media fear campaigns, you would find this confusing. More than two weeks ago, the governor of Texas completely reversed his devastating lockdown policies and repealed all his emergency powers, along with the egregious attacks on rights and liberties. There was something very un-Texan about those lockdowns. My hotel room is festooned with pictures of cowboys on horses waving guns in the air, along with other depictions of rugged individualism facing down the elements. It’s a caricature but Texans embrace it. Then a new virus came along – as if that had never happened before in Texas – and the new Zoom class took the opposite path, not freedom but imposition and control. After nearly a year of nonsense, on March 2, 2021, the governor finally said enough is enough and repealed it all. Towns and cities can still engage in Covid-related mischief but at least they are no longer getting cover from the governor’s office. At that moment, a friend remarked to me that this would be the test we have been waiting for. A complete repeal of restrictions would lead to mass death, they said. Would it? Did the lockdowns really control the virus? We would soon find out, he theorized. I knew better. The “test” of whether and to what extent lockdowns control the virus or “suppress outbreaks” (in Anthony Fauci’s words) has been tried all over the world. Every serious empirical examination has shown that the answer is no.
Questions of The Day!
Hi Robert! My husband is trying to quick soda. We’ve been on a cleanse, and the hardest part for him is wanting that soda first thing in the morning and the rest of the day isn’t any easier. Is there a supplement he could flood his body with that might make it easier for him?
Hello again, I ‘m at work and got side tracked before asking my part 2 question. Pulse beat in ear – is that something I should be concerned about. I only get it sporadically but I’ve noticed it more the last week or so. I read everything from blocked artery to vertebrae issue. Would love to hear your thoughts.
Hello Robert and Super D.,
Thanks for such a great show! It’s my all time fav. My little brother is weening off anti depressant and anti psychotic drugs. High doses of vitamin c are recommended during this process on drugawareness.org. I was wondering what your take on this is, would you substitute with selenium and chromium? Can you point me in the right direction with determining correct dosage of selenium and chromium? Should he take both selenium and chromium? Or just selenium? Would love it if I could point my little bro to some natural remedies to aid with his weening.
Did I mention you guys have a really awesome show?
Amish community may have reached coronavirus ‘herd immunity,’ health official says An Amish community in Pennsylvania may have become the first group in the U.S. to achieve herd immunity, a local health official claims. The administrator of a medical center in the heart of Lancaster County’s New Holland Borough, which is known for its Amish and Mennonite communities, estimates that as many as 90 percent of the religious families have had at least one family member infected with the virus. “So, you would think if COVID was as contagious as they say, it would go through like a tsunami; and it did,” said Allen Hoover, an administrator of the Parochial Medical Center, which caters to the religious community and has 33,000 patients. The Amish and Mennonite groups initially complied with stay-at-home orders at the beginning of the pandemic — shuttering schoolhouses and canceling church services. But by late April, they had resumed worship services, where they shared communion cups and holy kisses, a church greeting among believers. Soon after, the virus tore throughout the religious enclave. “It was bad here in the spring; one patient right after another,” said Pam Cooper, a physician’s assistant at the Parochial Medical Center. In late April and early May, the county’s positivity rate for COVID-19 tests exceeded 20 percent, according to nonprofit Covid Act Now.
At Least A Third Of Coronavirus Infections Are Asymptomatic The pandemic has corrected several common misconceptions about health, like the assumption that you only catch and spread infectious disease when you seem sick. At one extreme, the measles virus always reveals signs of infection, whereas at the other end, many of those infected with polio virus show no clear symptoms. Where does the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus sit on that scale of causing symptoms? Researchers have now estimated the proportion of infected people who never develop symptoms of Coronavirus Disease. The research by Daniel Oran and Eric Topol from Scripps Research Translational Institute in La Jolla, California, involved a systematic review of reports that tested for Covid. Those tests either looked for current viral infection through PCR (polymerase chain reaction) analysis or via past infection, as indicated by antibody testing — the presence of antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Oran and Topol’s review, published in Annals of Internal Medicine, found 61 reports, 43 of which used PCR after collecting nose/mouth swabs, and 18 that had performed antibody testing. The study aimed to count the number of people who never have symptoms of Covid — asymptomatic cases — and exclude those who initially show no signs but then eventually develop the disease. As it’s only possible to identify the latter — presymptomatic cases — in retrospect, the study only considered reports with a follow-up period that tracked whether Covid appeared later.
Your Papers, Please: New York Introduces “Vaccine Passport” For Events, Businesses New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced a “vaccine passport” that New Yorkers can use to prove vaccination or history of a negative Covid-19 test. The program, called the “Excelsior Pass,” is an app that is not mandatory. “Similar to a mobile airline boarding pass, individuals will be able to either print out their pass or store it on their smartphones using the Excelsior Pass Wallet app,” the state news release said. “Each Pass will have a secure QR code, which participating businesses and venues can scan using a companion app to verify proof of COVID-19 negative test results or proof of vaccination. An individual’s data is kept secure and confidential at all times.” No health information will be revealed when scanned. A green checkmark or red “X” will be the only identifiers. Madison Square Garden and the Times Union Center in Albany are among the venues that will begin using the app next week. On April 2, Excelsior Pass will expand to “smaller arts, entertainment and event venues. “New Yorkers have proven they can follow public health guidance to beat back COVID, and the innovative Excelsior Pass is another tool in our new toolbox to fight the virus while allowing more sectors of the economy to reopen safely and keeping personal information secure,” Cuomo said in a statement.
Climate of ‘fear’ prevents experts from questioning the handling of the pandemic A CLIMATE of fear is preventing experts from questioning the handling of the pandemic, with reputations smeared, jobs lost and even families threatened. Much abuse has come from within academic or professional circles, with one professor saying debate was becoming impossible because “we are not talking to each other properly. We are being thrown into confrontational positions.” Many leading experts have withdrawn from the debate after having reputations smeared, jobs lost and even families threatened raising questions about pandemic policy. This month alone has seen one leading medic, working to protect vulnerable children, forced to abandon a project to safeguard youngsters after their name was sullied when they questioned the government approach. Another expert has been sidelined from a vital role on a government advisory group, while senior NHS staff have been threatened with disciplinary measures for questioning the government approach online or in the media. Senior academics say they have feared losing vital funding, warned not to speak out with the threat of disciplinary action or deemed ‘outliers’ for their views on lockdown.
Comments of The Day!
In case you were wondering, blood mobiles ARE taking blood from people who have taken the COVID shots. My dad, a long time blood donor, went yesterday and had no problem giving blood, even though he, at 95, got both Pfizer injections. I asked him if they asked if he had been vaccinated, and he said they did ask. So they know they are accepting blood from people who are part of a medical experiment. Real nice.
We have gone 100% organic. If we go to a friends house who doesn’t cook organic, I have to pack or I get sick. We can’t go out to eat, so we have to pack. And it’s all because you challenged us to eat even better. So thank you! – Jocelyn
