Experts are saying that some data has been misinterpreted after a vaccine safety program data shows that more than 900 people have died after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.
The data comes from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), which is monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
As of this past Sunday, the VARES system shows that 977 people have died after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine from both Moderna and Pfizer.
Dr. Arnold Monto, a professor of epidemiology and global public health at the University of Michigan, has said that there is no reason for anyone to be concerned, “If you start looking at where the deaths are occurring post-vaccination, you find that they’re mainly in nursing homes.”
Of the people that died in the state, half were seniors, and more than 33% of them were more than 80 years old. It should be noted, on the VARES website, it’s stated that “vaccine deaths” may not be directly caused by the vaccine.
“The reports may contain information that is incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental, or unverifiable. Most reports to VAERS are voluntary, which means they are subject to biases.
This creates specific limitations on how the data can be used scientifically. Data from VAERS reports should always be interpreted with these limitations in mind,” the disclaimer states.
