“The cure can’t be worse than the disease” doesn’t just apply to lockdowns.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) thousands of people have been “unable to work or perform daily activities,” or “required care from a health care professional” since taking the COVID-19 vaccine.
The information was presented on December 19 by CDC epidemiologist, Dr. Thomas Clark, to the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, an independent panel that provides recommendations to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
The Epoch Times reports:
As of Dec. 18, 3,150 people reported what the agency terms “health impact events” after getting vaccinated.
Those who are experiencing these “events” are “unable to perform normal daily activities, unable to work,” or “required care from [a] doctor or health care professional.”
The incidents were reported through V-safe, a smartphone application. The tool uses text messages and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins, and allows users to quickly tell the CDC if they’re experiencing side effects.
The CDC and Pfizer, which produces the vaccine with BioNTech, didn’t immediately respond to request for comments.

It’s important to note that 272,001 vaccines have been rolled out, so the 3,150 people experiencing negative reactions is a drop in the bucket, but it’s almost the same percentage of the number of deaths in the U.S. attributed to COVID.
Let’s take a second to compare.
Using the numbers that we have today, the overall Infection Fatality Ratio (IFR) in the United States is approximately 0.018%. To get that number, you divide the number of deaths attributed to COVID by the number of cases. Worldometer reports that the U.S. has had 324,498 deaths attributed to COVID and 18,277,433 cases of COVID. Now, I know that doesn’t include complications or “lingering effects” from COVID. It also doesn’t account for the likely undercount of cases which would drop the IFR significantly lower, but let’s use what we’ve got reported.
Now, let’s take the number of negative reactions to the vaccine (3,150) and divide by the number of vaccines given (272,001), it’s 0.011%.
Consider now that we’ve completely reshaped our entire lives because of the virus but we’re going to dismiss risks from a vaccine despite the likelihood that the people reacting to the virus wouldn’t have been the ones that were at risk for fatality in the first place.
We have seen some pretty severe reactions to the vaccine in the initial rollout.
There have been a handful of reports of anaphylactic reactions to the Pfizer vaccine. As a result, the CDC has recommended that people with severe allergies don’t get vaccinated just yet. The U.K. has issued the same warning. Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that can be fatal.
Then there was that nurse in Tennessee that fainted on camera 15 minutes or so after getting the vaccine.
She later explained that she “faints when she feels pain.” That makes her a weird choice to be the one to be used as an example to instill trust in a vaccine that so many people are skeptical of, no?
Alaska reported five cases of adverse reactions from the Pfizer vaccine, one healthcare worker had to be hospitalized for two days. Illinois halted the rollout after four hospital employees suffered adverse reactions to the vaccine.
The FDA is now working with the CDC and colleagues in the U.K. investigating the cause of the allergic reactions.
“We’ll be looking at all of the data we can from each of these reactions to sort out exactly what happened. And we’ll also be looking to try to understand which components of the vaccine might be helping to produce them,” said Dr. Peter Marks, director of the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research.
One possible cause is polyethylene glycol, a component of the vaccine that can sometimes cause an anaphylactic response. It is present in both the Pfizer and the Moderna vaccines.
But that is just speculation at this point.
This isn’t to bash the Trump admin or Big Pharma that managed to get a vaccine out in incredible time — there are risks for all vaccines, just like there are risks for other things.
It is interesting that the same people that are saying that we can’t assess risk with our jobs, living our lives, and having our children get a proper education, (though, is that even a thing at public schools in America these days?) will say that the risk is worth the reward when it comes to a vaccine.
It looks like there are some risks that the government is considering mandating that you can take, and others that the government won’t even address. Even though they’re both minimal.
Strange, isn’t it?
In passing off our responsibilities to the government, we’ve passed off our autonomy, too. And in case you haven’t noticed, they’re not interested in giving it back.
It’s up to free people to TAKE it back.
Because once enough people refuse to follow the lead of a tyrant… they lose the source of their power over the rest of us.
