The current COVID-19 coronavirus vaccines are not being tested for their ability to reduce mortality at this time. That would require a long-term study because there are so few deaths (376,000 in 325,000,000 Americans or 0.001 (1/10th of one-percent) in the population at large.
But here in the short-term (2 weeks) 24 deaths among 193 vaccinated residents = 12.4% mortality rate or a 124-fold increase in mortality over and above the COVID-19 death rate for the population at large is reported.
There are an estimated 1.4 million residents in nursing homes in the US. A 12.4% mortality rate would kill 173,600 if extrapolated to the entire US nursing home population. Amazon Essentials Men&... Buy New $37.50 (as of 05:26 EST - Details)
Usually when such horrific deaths occur in the middle of a clinical study of an unproven vaccine (which is what this is), the study is halted.
Based upon a prior study, the complication rate for people from the flu shot is 1 in 100 (mostly elderly) that are hospitalized from vaccine-related side effects and then 1 in 100 of those hospitalized due to side effects of the vaccine die.
These deaths may be caused by the frailty of the patients or other non-vaccine-related factors such as medication errors, antibiotic resistance, etc, rather than the vaccine itself. So the vaccination process must be evaluated in total. The vaccine industry gets off the hook for these deaths by saying the deaths were not deemed to be vaccine-related. But vaccination did hasten death from all causes, what is called all-cause mortality.
