More Women Than Men Reported Injuries After COVID Vaccine, V-safe Data Show


by Michael Nevradakis, Ph.D., Childrens Health Defense:

Data collected from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s V-safe app reveal that women and also recipients of the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines were disproportionately affected by adverse events following their vaccination.


The data were publicized Oct. 3 by the Austin-based nonprofit Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) following its successful lawsuit against the CDC and a court order demanding the CDC release the data.

ICAN published the data using a graphical online dashboard and also made the raw data — containing more than 144 million lines of health data — available to the public.

The V-safe smartphone app collected post-vaccination health assessments from approximately 10 million people between Dec. 14, 2020, and July 31, 2022.

Del Bigtree, CEO of ICAN, described the data file as “huge, gigantic” and remarked on the CDC’s failure to make this information available.

“The CDC had billions of dollars to build something like this,” he said. “They didn’t do it, so we did it for them.”

Adverse events for Moderna, J&J recipients disproportionately high

According to data presented by Statista, of the more than 610 million COVID-19 vaccines administered in the U.S. as of Sept. 7, 59.2% (361.3 million) were Pfizer, 37.6% (229.8 million) were Moderna and 3.1% (18.9 million) were J&J.

However, the V-safe data reveal that out of the 3.35 million people who reported being affected in some way by the vaccines, 48.3% received the Moderna vaccine and 4.7% received the J&J vaccine.

Both percentages are higher than that of the general population that received those vaccines.

According to ICAN, “These data also reflect a disproportionate amount of negative health impacts, including medical events, following the Moderna vaccine versus the Pfizer vaccine.”

Attorney Aaron Siri, who represented ICAN in its lawsuit against the CDC, highlighted the disproportionate effects reported by Moderna vaccine recipients, telling Fox News:

“The Moderna vaccine, interestingly, even though less shots of it were administered, appears within this data set to have a higher rate of adverse effects.”

Dr. Madhava Setty, a board-certified anesthesiologist and senior science editor for The Defender, suggested the disproportionate percentage of adverse events associated with the Moderna vaccine may be related to Moderna’s larger dose, compared with Pfizer.

“The most likely explanation of the Moderna issue is that there is more mRNA in each dose of their formulation compared to that in Pfizer’s,” he said.
