From Sore Arms to Sudden Death

Reader reports on adverse vaccine reactions.

It is undeniable: The Corona vaccines cause a wide array of adverse events, not all of them understood. Right now it’s hard to assess their population-wide impact, but it is no longer reasonable to doubt that they’re substantially more dangerous than ordinary vaccines. Rough calculations from VAERS data suggest that they’re at least several hundred times more dangerous than flu shots.

In addition to acute vaccine reactions – fever, myalgia, swollen lymph nodes and injection site soreness in the days following vaccination – many of you also discussed an array of more disturbing symptoms, including serious tinnitus, heightened blood pressure, chest pains, irregular menstrual bleeding and shortness of breath. I also had many letters describing shingles and Bell’s Palsy following vaccination; and of more puzzling and potentially more serious neurological problems, from vertigo to muscular tremors to seizures. For the most part, milder acute symptoms disappeared in days, but some you report sore arms and tinnitus lasting many months.

Among the severe reactions, myocarditis and stroke have a prominent place in your reports; I had fewer reports of miscarriages, but they were also present. Consistent with internet discussion elsewhere, some of you also report the sudden development or resurgence of cancer following Corona vaccination.

Broadly speaking, dose 3 seems to have been worse than dose 2, and dose 2 worse than dose 1. Many, many of the vaccinated among you caught Corona following vaccination. There are the preponderance of infections in the week following the first and third doses, which we already knew about, but these are but a fraction of post-vaccine infections overall. Probably a big thing that has stalled the political momentum driving mass vaccination, is the prevalence of bad booster reactions followed by breakthrough infection.

Another point that emerged from your letters, is the generally high threshold for obtaining an exemption from further vaccination following an adverse reaction. It was disturbing to read several stories of people who were essentially vaccinated to death – dying after dose 3, following a rough reaction to dose 1 and a near-miss with dose 2.

Finally, almost all of you were vaccinated under duress. Some of you accepted vaccination simply to end the medical surveillance or to win back some freedom of movement. That was surprisingly uncommon, though; those who gave in to the petty harassments of the vaccinators generally said they didn’t appreciate the risk of the vaccines, or the outrageousness of the legal regime surrounding them, until later. Most often, people gave in to keep their jobs or to appease insistent family members. Some parents accepted vaccination so that they could attend school events involving their children; other people wanted to see elderly relatives in hospital or care homes.

As always, I’m very, very grateful for all the time you took to send detailed and textured reports of your experiences with this unprecedented, coercive experiment. I’ve read every email you sent; this time, in fact, I’ve studied them even more closely than usual, which is why this post has taken a while. I regret as always that I can’t publish everything. What follows is my best attempt to be representative, and to highlight a few unique perspectives.

I’ve kept all reports anonymous, and clipped some of them for length or to remove potentially identifying details.


Let’s begin with some views from inside the system.

This hospital doctor in Scotland explains the “under-reporting culture” that exists within his profession:

As a hospital doctor in Edinburgh, UK, I am in a position to assess for myself the impact of public health measures on my daily work and the disease burden in my patients.

I’d like to focus on MHRA yellow cards, and highlight the actual under reporting culture.

I think this is a function of some deeper problem in modern, ‘enlightened’ society, where individuals are completely dissociated from their problem solving, sceptical, and observational capacities. They are unaware of the existence of injury potentials or rationales, nor even of monitoring systems in place like VAERS or yellow card.

The question: “shall we complete a yellow card?” is answered with: “what’s a yellow card?”. This is my experience.

Patients answer: “No“, when you ask them: “Did you get any injections from your GP?”.

They say: “No“, again, when you ask again, until you prompt hard enough for them to recall that a pandemic has been raging.

Ultimately, most individuals have a health event- or interestingly, NO health event, at all- to report. They are not empowered to attribute causality to some new, or exacerbated symptom in their life. Often, an episode of confusion is completely unattributable to an injection, because of the very cognitive incapacity that muddies a prodromal medical history. Families are not complaining of causality when they give collateral histories, and the injectors themselves are not receiving feedback on their actions.

Nurses are roaming the hospital with backpacks and lists of subjects to inoculate, and doctors are motivated to increase vaccine coverage.

Incapacitated patients are receiving experimental products.

One seldom sees a complete pharmaceutical history documented clerk-in. This must include immunisations and their associated batch numbers in cases of potential injury.

My own MHRA Yellow Card submissions have included adverse events descriptions with as much clinical and laboratory data as I could organise and report. I have kept my own list.

One case required radiographic CT investigation from head to pelvis of the largest thrombus we had ever seen (from facial sinuses down to axilla)- without a malignancy visible on scans. I later learned the patient had died soon after discharge, and that the cause of death was of Cancer of Unknown Origin (a common diagnosis in the absence of pathological proof of cancer). The patient’s GP had been irritated by Yellow Card grievances, which is another interesting factor to consider in our professional lives.

MHRA have only chased me up for more data from this single case. A second form with identical information was submitted.

We whisper to each other about the serious adverse events we have come to suspect; a flatmate’s mother’s death by myocardial infarction, a friend with hepatitis in hospital, another friend’s death, someone’s Guillain-Barre-Syndrome. Contemplating the worst case scenario is so sad for me, and I must navigate the complexities of serious face-to-face conversations with patients, families and my colleagues. The moral injury I sustain feels very significant.
