National Academies badly misleads America about the safety of the COVID vaccine


by Steve Kirsch, Steve Kirsch’s newsletter:

They claimed there were no safety signals for the mRNA vaccines except for myocarditis. The problem is that relying solely on published papers is a very bad idea. A huge mistake.

Executive summary

The US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM) recently issued a safety report on the COVID vaccines with the following conclusions (for the Pfizer vaccine):


  1. Causes: myocarditis (but not pericarditis).
  2. Do not cause: infertility, Guillain-Barré syndrome or Bell’s palsy, thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS), heart attack, and ischemic stroke.
  3. Inconclusive: all other conditions tested including chronic headache, tinnitus, capillary leak syndrome and sudden death.

I wrote an email to the Vice Chair of the committee saying that the clinical reality doesn’t match their rhetoric and offered to have a discussion to resolve the conflict.

My email was ignored, exactly as 78% of my readers predicted.

The medical community is violating the first rule of holes: if you find yourself in one, stop digging.

These 100% verifiable anecdotes are statistically impossible if the vaccines are safe

You only need one example to reject the null hypothesis.

Yet I can easily come up with many.

For example, I just did a survey of 1,140 people who experienced one of the 28 side effects studied in the report. You can view the results here. Basically only 1 person thought their injury (I only allowed the 28 side effects in the NASEM survey) was NOT due to the vaccine!!

That fact alone is damning, but some people could just claim that everyone who follows me is a nut case that thinks that everything is caused by vaccines.

More objectively, in 23 of the 28 side effects, the event rates were not evenly spread out over time. That means something is going on.

In short, it seems pretty obvious that in at least 23 of the 28 side effects, the vaccine was more likely than not causing the effect.

The signal for died suddenly is stronger than for myocarditis

For example, for “sudden death”, here are the Fisher stats:

In plain English, your odds of “dying suddenly” were 4.4X higher in week 1 vs. week 2 and the number of cases were so large that the probability that this “anecdote” happened by random chance is 4.5e-9, which is nearly 1 chance in a billion.

In other words, it’s a statistical certainty that “died suddenly” is associated with COVID vaccination. It also means that it’s likely that at least 77% of the “sudden deaths” happening post vaccination were caused by the COVID vaccine.

Or if you think my survey is biased, simply explain why, of the nearly 500 people in Ed Dowd’s book who died suddenly after 2021, only 1 person was found to be unvaccinated. Ed simply picked those people without knowing their vaccination status. How could Ed get so “lucky” and just pick only vaccinated people who died suddenly? The chance of him doing that is less than 1 in a million.

So there’s really no doubt at all that that the vaccine is causing people to die suddenly, yet the medical community is completely incapable of finding a huge signal like this, even though the signal strength (in my survey) was higher than the myocarditis signal.

By contrast, the NASEM report said there wasn’t enough data to form a conclusion on sudden death.

The data is in plain sight showing the connection between the COVID vaccines and injuries

Perhaps they should read the 1,140 injury reports and read the 625 comments and see how they explain all of these as “coincidences.” How do they explain the odds ratio and p-values?

All I need is just a single compelling case for each injury type. Some people who reported injuries noted in their report that their doctors agreed it was caused by the COVID vaccine.

For example, recordID 240 documents a 65 year old male who got just 1 COVID shot and developed GBS in less than 24 hours from the shot: “Even the medical doctors agreed it was from the covid injection.”
