Over 400 million of doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the USA thus far. As of October 8, 2021, a total of 856,919 negative reactions related to COVID-19 vaccines have been reported to the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) [1], including:

  • 18,078 deaths, with the youngest being deaths in several 13-year-olds and a 12-year-old [2] 

  • 220,644 reports of anaphylaxis (allergic reaction) [3]

  • 131,027 serious reactions, such as blood clots, convulsions, and heart attacks [4]

  • 4,206 miscarriages and preterm births [6]

Vaccine reactions are known to be greatly under-reported to VAERS. It has been estimated that fewer than 1% of adverse reactions are reported to the VAERS [7].
