CDC Releases Previously Hidden Reports on Adverse Events Post COVID-19 Vaccination

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has made public a large volume of reports that detail adverse events experienced by individuals after receiving COVID-19 vaccinations. These reports, numbering around 780,000, were submitted through V-safe, a text-message based system designed by the CDC to track potential side effects from the vaccines.

The disclosed reports highlight various post-vaccination complications, including facial paralysis, heart inflammation, miscarriages, and seizures. One person described their experience with sudden loss of consciousness and seizures immediately after the injection, leading to an emergency room visit. Another report detailed a diagnosis of Bell's Palsy, characterized by facial numbness and paralysis.

The CDC had previously withheld the V-safe data, opting instead to publish studies that asserted the vaccines' safety. Yet, data released in 2022 indicated that nearly 8 percent of the 10 million V-safe users needed medical care or were hospitalized post-vaccination, with many reporting disruptions to their daily activities.

The release of these reports follows an order by U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk in January, which called for the disclosure of free-text entries where individuals could elaborate on their experiences. Judge Kacsmaryk, appointed by former President Donald Trump, rejected the government's claim that processing and redacting sensitive information would be overly burdensome.

Out of the 523,000 individuals who reported, some instances included dozens of reports of heart inflammation, hundreds of facial paralysis cases, and thousands of tinnitus reports. The free-text responses provided a unique avenue for individuals to document adverse events, including heart inflammation, despite the CDC's prior knowledge of these risks.

The Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN), a nonprofit organization, initiated the litigation that led to the release of these reports. Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center, criticized the CDC's lack of transparency, emphasizing the importance of public awareness when consistent symptoms are reported post-vaccination.

The exact dates of the free-text entries are currently unknown, but attorney Elizabeth Brehm, who represents ICAN, stated that these entries are among the earliest received by the CDC following the vaccine rollout in late 2020. The remaining entries are expected to be made available progressively.

A CDC spokesperson provided limited information but noted that individuals who sought medical care after vaccination were prompted to submit a VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) report. The spokesperson confirmed that data from VAERS is analyzed to identify uncommon patterns or high incidences of rare and serious adverse events following vaccination. They acknowledged that the VAERS data helped identify issues that the vaccines cause, including myocarditis.
