210 COVID Vaccine Deaths in Australia, or just One?
Clive Palmer has recently been pushing the news that 210 people have been reported as dying after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.
The Australian government say it is only One.
I heard Clive Palmer three times on the radio while driving home, saying that 210 had died, and decided to check the facts.
The TGA report, quoted by Clive Palmer, has received 210 reports of deaths following immunisation, but, apart from the single Australian case in which death was linked to TTS, COVID-19 vaccines have NOT been found to cause death.
Clive Palmer, saying that the TGA has reported 210 deaths, omits the part that only ONE is vaccine related.
The TGA report states this:
To 23 May 2021, 3.6 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been given in Australia. In this period, the TGA has received 210 reports of deaths following immunisation – 109 have been reported for the Pfizer vaccine, 94 for the AstraZeneca vaccine and seven where the vaccine was not specified.
Most of these reports (93%) were for people 65 years of age and over, and over three quarters were 75 years of age and over. Many of the deaths relate to elderly aged-care residents.
To date, the observed number of deaths reported after vaccination is actually less than the expected number of deaths.
Each year in Australia, there are about 160,000 deaths, equating to 13,300 a month or 3,050 each week.
The TGA report in question.
