ICAN’s attorneys demand the CDC and FDA explain the alarming results of an audit of VAERS which found major issues with 42% of the reports reviewed.
React19, a patient advocacy organization that represents thousands of people injured following COVID-19 vaccines, recently conducted an audit of the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database. It shared the results of this audit with ICAN and its legal team. The results are shocking.
As most of you know, VAERS is the database designed to monitor the safety of vaccines in the United States through vaccine injury reports submitted by patients and doctors. VAERS is used by individuals inside and outside the government to assess vaccine safety. It goes without saying that the VAERS system therefore needs to actually include the data submitted to VAERS. Unfortunately, React19’s audit revealed that, in many instances, that is not the case.
Based on its audit of 126 verified VAERS reports randomly collected from its members, React19 found that 5% never made it into the VAERS system, another 22% made it into the system but were not publicly visible, and incredibly another 15% of VAERS reports made it into the system but then were outright deleted! Even more concerning, the majority of the deleted reports consisted of permanent disabilities and emergency room visits! In total, 42% of reports were not accessible in the VAERS system used by many across this country to assess vaccine safety.
In light of these alarming findings, ICAN’s legal team sent a demand letter to the CDC and FDA demanding it explain why this crucial data the public pays for and deserves to see is either unavailable or has been deleted. We will keep you posted on their response. Unfortunately, whatever the response, this is yet another piece of evidence about how our health agencies are not interested in assessing safety, but rather only in affirming their policy and predetermined view these products are safe.
