Washington has reported its third case of a person dying after receiving their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. The news has since put the spotlight on the number of people who die despite being fully vaccinated against the novel coronavirus.

Deaths after COVID-19 vaccination

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), operated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recently reported a case of a 17-year-old Washington woman who died Gone 36 days after receiving her second Pfizer jab. She appeared to be healthy as she had no allergies or previous illnesses.

The teenager received her first dose on September 3rd and her second dose on September 15th. She previously contracted an asymptomatic (non-severe) case of COVID-19 in August but made a full recovery from the infection. On October 23, she showed up at a hospital emergency room after having had chest pain and shortness of breath for the past 48 hours.

She suffered cardiac arrest in the hospital. Doctors tried to resuscitate her with cardioversion, amiodarone, lidocaine, and other antiarrhythmic drugs, but were unable to resuscitate her. The VAERS report stated that her possibly cause of death was acute myocarditis. However, it was also found that prior to the onset of chest discomfort on October 21, she was “completely fine”.

The 17-year-old’s case marked the third death Washington recorded in which someone died after receiving the vaccine. The second case was a 37-year-old mother of two named Jessica Berg Wilson, who died of “COVID-19 vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia,” according to her obituary on September 7th. She received the Janssen vaccine from Johnson & Johnson.

The first case was a 34-year-old man who suffered cardiac arrest eight days after receiving the Pfizer vaccine on June 23. He passed away two days later. Records showed he developed an anaphylactic reaction after being vaccinated on June 15. An autopsy report showed he was a healthy adult, while a toxicology report found the COVID-19 vaccine was the only contributing factor in his death.

Vaccine Brand Deaths

The CDC released data on the rates of infection and death by vaccination status last month. The report showed that unvaccinated people had 6.1 times the risk of contracting SARS-CoV-2. They also had an 11.3 times greater risk of dying from the disease compared to those who were already vaccinated.

After analyzing all of the data submitted by various health authorities in different states, the CDC itemized the case and death rates by vaccine brand. Of the three brands available in the country, the J&J brand had the highest incidence rate of 171.92 cases per 100,000 population. It was followed by Pfizer’s 135.64 cases per 100,000 population and Moderna’s 86.28 cases per 100,000 population.

In terms of deaths, the rate reflected the breakdown of cases by vaccine brand and frequency. However, the numbers were consistently significantly lower. It was also found that people over 80 had the highest death rate among the groups, whether or not they were vaccinated, as highlighted by Healthcare IT News.

As of November 5, the VAERS website has documented a total of 8,456 COVID-19 vaccination deaths in the country. Most deaths were reported in the age group over 75 – a total of 3,868. Oddly enough, the database also listed 3 cases with children under 3 years of age and 1 case for ages 9-12.

Of the total number of deaths, 10% occurred within 24 hours of vaccination, 15% within 48 hours, and 26% in people who showed symptoms within 48 hours of vaccination. All deaths were reported between December 14, 2020 and November 5, 2021, according to Children’s Health Defense.

Does this mean the vaccines are ineffective?

Contrary to what the latest data on deaths from COVID-19 vaccinations might show, scientists and medical experts are still strongly urging everyone to get vaccinated amid the ongoing pandemic. A CDC spokesman even reiterated that all COVID-19 vaccines available in the US are “effective in preventing” [severe infection]. “

Compared to the number of people who have benefited from the vaccines, the deaths are relatively small. To date, 427.6 million doses have been administered in the United States. Of this, Pfizer accounted for 250 million, Moderna accounted for 162 million and J & J’s Janssen vaccine 16 million.

A real-world study of more than 700,000 people, conducted by the Clalit Research Institute and published in The Lancet earlier this month, found that booster vaccination makes a big difference in providing optimal protection against COVID-19 infection. The study focused on Pfizer as it was the first to receive approval for their booster vaccination.

After analyzing the data, the researchers found that the third dose of the Pfizer vaccine reduced the risk of developing severe COVID-19 by 92%, hospitalization by 93%, and death by 81%. They also found that the booster effectiveness was similar by gender, age, and even in people with comorbidities.
