Public health advice regarding COVID-19 has shifted like quicksand since WHO declared a global pandemic last year, but one message remained the same: “Don’t kill Granny.”1 Most everyone heeded the warning and followed directives; avoiding grandparents as if they were the diseased ones. But now those same grandparents are either dying or being injured following vaccination against COVID-19 and nobody seems to care.
Vaccine deaths in Australia
As of May 23, 2021, the TGA has received 210 reports of deaths following vaccination (109 Pfizer; 94 AstraZeneca; 7 Unspecified). 93% of these reports were for people 65 years of age and over, and over three quarters were 75 years of age and over.2 The TGA isn’t alarmed, though. According to them, the observed number of deaths reported after vaccination is less than the expected number of deaths. But for many of us that answer isn’t satisfactory. How about an autopsy? How about telling us how those 210 people died?
Vaccine injuries in Australia
There are 27 cases of Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS) in Australia.3 According to the TGA website, “TTS is triggered by the immune system’s response to the AstraZeneca vaccine and is different from other clotting conditions.” What their definition brushes passed is that TTS is a new syndrome reported in people who have received adenoviral vector vaccines (AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson).4 The ‘newness’ of the syndrome is no doubt due to the fact that vector vaccines are new technology.
The features of TTS occur in days 4-30 after vaccination and may include symptoms of blood clots in various organs including (but not limited to) severe headaches unresponsive to simple analgesia, abdominal pain, significant respiratory symptoms/distress, visual changes, vomiting, seizures, focal neurological deficits/changes, and confusion/encephalopathy. Note: many of these symptoms are the same ones linked to the Indian variant, a variant that may breakthrough these vaccines.5
The TTS patients in Australia include two women from NSW (a 60-year-old and an 82-year-old), a 72-year-old male from WA, a 51-year-old woman from WA, a 73-year-old woman from Victoria, a 63-year-old man from Queensland, an 85-year-old woman from NSW, a 62-year-old man from Victoria, and a 76-year-old woman from Victoria. Of them, 17 cases have been discharged from hospital and are recovering; 4 have left hospital but require outpatient medical care; 9 patients remain in hospital; 2 are unaccounted for; 1 is dead, a 48-year-old woman from NSW.
Are we surprised?
Given the truncated testing period, many would argue that the deaths and injuries following these experimental jabs shouldn’t surprise us. The Australian Government was certainly expecting them; why else would they give the suppliers of two COVID-19 vaccine indemnity against liability for rare side effects?6
What is even more mind-boggling is the Federal Government’s messaging that Australians “have to get the jab” when the TGA cautions against a one-size-fits-all approach? For AstraZeneca, the TGA recommend that vaccination of “an elderly patient should be decided on a case-by-case basis with consideration of age, co-morbidities, and their environment, taking into account the benefits of vaccination and potential risks.” Perhaps this is the reason for elderly vaccine deaths and injuries; a one-size-fits-all approach over the TGA’s official recommendation.
Millions upon millions of people masked up, locked down, and stayed away to avoid killing Grannies. Now we’re shrugging off their vaccine deaths and injuries.
Something isn’t adding up.
