A peer-reviewed MIT study of data in highly vaccinated Israel found COVID vaccines were “significantly associated” with a 25% spike in emergency medical services for heart problems in 16-39 year-olds.
A new study published in the Journal Nature under Scientific Reports titled “Increased emergency cardiovascular events among under-40 population in Israel during vaccine rollout and third COVID-19 wave” is one of many to raise safety concerns about COVID-19 vaccines.
The study used data from the Israel National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) from 2019 to 2021 to evaluate the association between the volume of cardiac arrest and acute coronary syndrome EMS calls in the 16-39 year-old population. Potential factors for these calls include COVID-19 infection and vaccination rates.
The authors found an increase of over 25% in both call types from January-May 2021 compared to 2019-2020. They explain that the weekly emergency call counts were “significantly associated with the rate of 1st and 2nd vaccine doses administered to this age group but were not with COVID-19 infection rates.”
“While not establishing causal relationships, the findings raise concerns regarding vaccine-induced undetected severe cardiovascular side-effects and underscore the already established causal relationship between vaccines and myocarditis, a frequent cause of unexpected cardiac arrest in young individuals. Surveillance of potential vaccine side-effects and COVID-19 outcomes should incorporate EMS and other health data to identify public health trends (e.g., increased in EMS calls), and promptly investigate potential underlying causes.”
The authors cite several studies that have, according to them, “established probable causal relationship between the messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines of BNTI62b2 and mRNA-1273 as well as adenovirus (ChAdOx1) vaccines with myocarditis.” These cases of myocarditis have been in middle age and young adults, and unfortunately primarily in children.
The authors also note that adverse cardiovascular outcomes like coronary artery thrombosis (blood clotting), cardiac arrest, acute coronary syndrome and myocarditis have been a result of COVID-19 infection as well. Multiple studies have made this clear. These concerns have been quite prevalent within the mainstream, and as a result many people have been made aware of this fact.
On the other hand, the majority of people are still not aware of data from regulatory surveillance and self reporting vaccine injury systems. These include, as the authors point out, the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) in the United States (US), the Yellow Card System in the United Kingdom and the EudraVigilance system in Europe. All of these systems have associated cardiovascular side effects with a number of COVID-19 vaccines.
As of when this article was written, 27, 532 deaths, 51,163 permanent disabilities and 152,574 hospitalizations have been reported to VAERS implicating COVID-19 vaccines. Approximately 50 percent of vaccine injuries reported to VAERS in the last 30 years are all from COVID-19 vaccines. Sure, VAERS has its criticisms, but it’s nothing to ignore.
For example, the authors mention one criticism,
“First, self-reporting systems of adverse events are known to have self-reporting bias and both under and over-reporting problems. Even the study from Israel, that is based on more proactive data collection mentions, that some of the potentially relevant cases were not fully investigated.”
It’s hard to know exactly if vaccine injuries are over reported and/or underreported. In a grant final report titled “Electronic Support for Public Health–Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (ESP:VAERS)” from 2011, at the time Harvard medical professors Ross Lazarus, Michael Klompas, and Steve Bernstein reported that less than one percent of all vaccine injuries are reported. Then again, you have publications suggesting the complete opposite, as the quote from the researchers above mentions.
Furthermore, the authors of this recent study pointed out that prior to COVID-19, there were already several studies demonstrating that myocarditis is a major cause of sudden, unexpected deaths in young adults. What we are seeing is not a new phenomenon, and its connection to the COVID vaccines may in fact be over exaggerated.
These are a few of multiple reasons mentioned as to why it’s almost impossible to pinpoint the cause of a cardiac event during COVID-19, especially given the fact that COVID-19, again, is a known cause itself.
But there are disturbing reports and signals out there. For example, three pathologists have published a piece in the journal, Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine regarding their examination of autopsies conducted of two teenage boys who died days after receiving Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine. According to the three pathologists, two of whom are medical examiners, “The myocardial injury seen in these post-vaccine hearts is different from typical myocarditis.”
These were healthy children, with no evidence of active or previous COVID-19 infection. They also had toxicology screens showing no poisons or drugs present in their bodies.
There are similar reports in VAERS. For example (I.D. 1764974), a 15-year-old boy who suddenly died six days after receiving his first dose of the Pfizer product had an autopsy. It revealed “small foci of myocardial inflammation.”
A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request made by the Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency group has revealed that Pfizer was aware of 1,223 possible vaccine related deaths and more than 40,000 serious adverse within the first 90 days of their COVID-19 vaccine rollout.
On Nov. 8, 2021, an abstract appeared in the Journal Circulation of the American Heart Association (AMA) showing that COVID-19 vaccines “dramatically” increase heart inflammation” in the people that were studied. It also led to a substantial increase in the risk of heart complications, like myocarditis and heart attacks.
Twitter put a note on the post by the AMA, stating that it could be misleading and the study could have errors in it.
Cardiologist and NHS consultant Dr. Aseem Malhotra appeared on GBN explaining the findings, and while he was doing so he mentioned another study conducted by a well known cardiologist, who wished to remain anonymous, that found the same thing.
He stated the following,
“A few days ago after this was published [the abstract], somebody from a very prestigious British institution, cardiologist department, a researcher, a whistleblower if you’d like, contacted me to say that the researchers in this department had found something similar within the coronary arteries linked to the vaccine, inflammation from imaging studies around the coronary arteries.
And they had a meeting, and these researchers at the moment have decided that they’re not going to publish their findings because they are concerned about losing research money from the drug industry.
Now this person was very upset about it, and um, I obviously wanted to share this on GB news today.”
This is how someone like me, for example, puts two and two together. I believe it’s important for one to go beyond the “data” and look at factors like this.
Furthermore, anecdotal evidence of people sharing what they perceive to be their COVID-19 vaccine induced injuries has exploded on social media. There are multiple examples, Jab Injuries Australia is one of them, Jab Injuries Canada is another.
A 2021 study out of the University of California Davis used VAERS to show the risk of myocarditis for teenage boys in the 12-15 age group is at least six times greater after two doses of the Pfizer vaccine than being hospitalized for COVID-19. Another one published in Nature Medicine suggested the same.
The good thing about this recent study published in Nature is that the authors recommend ways to improve vaccine adverse events reporting systems. They believe that additional data sources can compliment vaccine surveillance systems, like the EMS data used in their study.
“The significant increases in CA calls and ACS calls among the 16–39 age population during the COVID-19 vaccination rollout highlights the value of additional data sources, such as those from EMS systems, that can supplement self-reporting surveillance systems in identifying concerning public health trends.
Moreover, it underscores the need for the thorough investigation of the apparent association between COVID-19 vaccine administration and adverse cardiovascular outcomes among young adults. Israel and other countries should immediately collect the data necessary to determine whether such association indeed exists, including thorough investigation of individual CA and ACS cases in young adults, and their potential connection to the vaccine or other factors.
This would be critical to better understanding the risk-benefits of the vaccine and to inform related public policy and prevent potentially avoidable patient harm.”
We know that COVID-19 vaccines are associated with these cardiovascular events, and we know COVID-19 is as well. The question is, for young people at least, are COVID-19 vaccines more of a risk for these types of events than the actual virus is?
It’s really hard to say, the authors do state that “While The benefits of COVID-19 vaccination are clear, especially for populations at great risk of developing serious and potentially life-threatening illness, it is important to better understand the potential risks to minimize potential harm.”
They’re not wrong, with so much uncertainty out there, it’s wise to look at the risks from COVID-19 when deciding about vaccination. Multiple countries have reported zero COVID-19 deaths in children throughout this pandemic, like Germany, Finland and Sweden for example. Others have reported similar numbers on par with the flu, and the survival rate young people has been estimated to be nearly 100 percent.
In the US, approximately 95 percent of people who have died with COVID-19 have an average of four other causes listed on the death certificate. A Freedom of Information Act request that was released on Jan 17, 2022 shows that there have only been 6,183 deaths caused solely by COVID in England and Wales between Feb 2020 and Dec 2021.
It’s also confusing as to why the strength of natural immunity has not been included in health policy.
It’s hard to have open and transparent discussions about these facts. People, journalists, doctors and scientists who have brought up vaccine safety and efficacy concerns throughout this pandemic have been censored, vilified and labeled as “conspiracy theorists” by governments and legacy media.
Several researchers from various academic institutions in the United Kingdom, United States and Canada have published a paper titled, “The Unintended Consequences of COVID-19 Vaccine Policy: Why Mandates, Passports, and Segregated Lockdowns may cause more Harm than Good.” It gives a great breakdown of what I am talking about.
