VAERS data released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show 1,307,928 reports of adverse events from all age groups following COVID-19 vaccines, including 29,031 deaths and 240,022 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020, and June 17, 2022.

VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.
The data included a total of 29,031 reports of deaths — an increase of 172 over the previous week — and 240,022 serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 1,610 compared with the previous week.
Foreign reports are reports foreign subsidiaries send to U.S. vaccine manufacturers. Under U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations, if a manufacturer is notified of a foreign case report that describes an event that is both serious and does not appear on the product’s labeling, the manufacturer is required to submit the report to VAERS.
Of the 13,388 U.S. deaths reported as of June 17, 16% occurred within 24 hours of vaccination, 20% occurred within 48 hours of vaccination and 59% occurred in people who experienced an onset of symptoms within 48 hours of being vaccinated.
In the U.S., 592 million COVID-19 vaccine doses had been administered as of June 16, including 349 million doses of Pfizer, 223 million doses of Moderna and 19 million doses of Johnson & Johnson (J&J).
Every Friday, VAERS publishes vaccine injury reports received as of a specified date. Reports submitted to VAERS require further investigation before a causal relationship can be confirmed.
Historically, VAERS has been shown to report only 1% of actual vaccine adverse events.
U.S. VAERS data from Dec. 14, 2020, to June 17, 2022, for 6-month-olds to 5-year-olds show:
- 1,757 adverse events, including 64 cases rated as serious and 3 reported deaths.
- 4 reports of myocarditis and pericarditis (heart inflammation).
- The CDC uses a narrowed case definition of “myocarditis,” which excludes cases of cardiac arrest, ischemic strokes and deaths due to heart problems that occur before one has the chance to go to the emergency department.
- 13 reports of blood clotting disorders.
U.S. VAERS data from Dec. 14, 2020, to June 17, 2022, for 5- to 11-year-olds show:
- 11,534 adverse events, including 298 rated as serious and 6 reported deaths.
The most recent reported death (VAERS I.D. 2315376) occurred in a 9-year-old female from Florida who died 172 days after receiving Pfizer’s vaccine. She was diagnosed with COVID-19 on May 28, 2022, and treated with various drugs, including Remdesivir. She was found unresponsive at home on June 3, and was declared brain dead.
- 22 reports of myocarditis and pericarditis.
The Defender has noticed over previous weeks that reports of myocarditis and pericarditis have been removed by the CDC from the VAERS system in this age group. No explanation was provided.
- 44 reports of blood clotting disorders.
U.S. VAERS data from Dec. 14, 2020, to June 17, 2022, for 12- to 17-year-olds show:
- 32,386 adverse events, including 1,834 rated as serious and 44 reported deaths.
- 62 reports of anaphylaxis among 12- to 17-year-olds where the reaction was life-threatening, required treatment or resulted in death — with 97% of cases attributed to Pfizer’s vaccine.
- 655 reports of myocarditis and pericarditis with 643 cases attributed to Pfizer’s vaccine.
- 166 reports of blood clotting disorders with all cases attributed to Pfizer. VAERS reported 167 cases of blood clotting disorders in the 12- to 17-year-old age group last week.
- 20 cases of postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) with all cases attributed to Pfizer’s vaccine.
U.S. VAERS data from Dec. 14, 2020, to June 17, 2022, for all age groups combined, show:
- 20% of deaths were related to cardiac disorders.
- 53% of those who died were male, 42% were female and the remaining death reports did not include the gender of the deceased.
- The average age of death was 73.
- As of June 17, 5,592 pregnant women reported adverse events related to COVID-19 vaccines, including 1,748 reports of miscarriage or premature birth.
- Of the 3,614 cases of Bell’s Palsy reported, 51% were attributed to Pfizer vaccinations, 40% to Moderna and 8% to J&J.
- 892 reports of Guillain-Barré syndrome, with 42% of cases attributed to Pfizer, 30% to Moderna and 27% to J&J.
- 2,290 reports of anaphylaxis where the reaction was life-threatening, required treatment or resulted in death.
- 1,726 reports of myocardial infarction.
- 14,118 reports of blood-clotting disorders in the U.S. Of those, 6,313 reports were attributed to Pfizer, 5,065 reports to Moderna and 2,703 reports to J&J.
- 4,060 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis with 2,596 cases attributed to Pfizer, 1,441 cases to Moderna and 172 cases to J&J.
- 11 cases of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease with 5 cases attributed Pfizer, 5 cases to Moderna and 1 case to J&J.
- 267 cases of POTS with 165 cases attributed to Pfizer, 84 cases to Moderna and 17 cases to J&J.
CDC advisors recommend Moderna shot for children ages 6 through 17
The CDC’s vaccine advisory panel unanimously voted 15 to 0 to recommend two doses of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 6 through 17 years old.
Members of the panel acknowledged there is a risk of heart inflammation associated with both mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, but they said a follow-up survey suggests most fully recover.
Not everyone agrees, including University of British Columbia professor Dr. Steven Pelech, who last year criticized health agencies’ relaxed attitude about myocarditis as misleading.
“Contrary to what a number of people have said, there is no such thing as ‘mild myocarditis,’” Pelech said.
