The media and the CDC seem to focus on anaphylactic reactions to vaccines. A serious as anaphylaxis is, it does not tell the whole story. It seems that the relatively rare anaphylactic reaction gives a false impression that the vaccine only detrimentally affects a very few. As of December 18, there were only 6 cases in the U.S. of anaphylaxis from the COVID-19 vaccine. There are other reactions to vaccines that, while they are not as immediately life-threatening as is anaphylactic shock, can result in long-term disabilities.
On December 20, 2020, Brian Shilhavy, Editor, Health Impact News reported that “[t]he first week of injecting American healthcare workers with the experimental illegal Pfizer mRNA vaccine has resulted in over 3000 of these healthcare workers. reporting that they were injured to the extent that they could not continue on their jobs and perform normal activities, requiring care from a doctor or healthcare worker.”
That sounded like hyperbole to me, so I decided to go directly to the report cited by Shilhavy that was posted on the CDC website. Sure enough, the December 19, 2020, report from Thomas Clark, MD, MPH of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) COVID-19 Vaccines Work Group of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported 3,150 debilitating injuries as of December 19, 2020. This is how Dr. Shilhavy described the injuries:
We should all pray that these healthcare workers are not permanently disabled. But the sad reality is that adverse vaccine reactions are often long-term. Another scary fact is that adverse vaccine reactions sometimes do not manifest for many months after the vaccination. And this report is about adverse reactions to the first shot of a two-shot regimen. As time goes by and people receive the second shot we can expect more victims to have adverse reactions. The insidious thing about vaccines is that because there is often a delay of many months between the shot and the adverse reaction, the vaccine manufacturers can claim that the disability is unrelated to the vaccine. You can plan on the pharmaceutical companies and the government denying any connection between later-manifested illnesses and the COVID-19 vaccine, just as they have done with denying the connection between childhood vaccinations and autism, ADHD, and allergies. These initial 3,150 victims are likely only the beginning of a wave of disabled vaccine recipients.
