As you may know COVID-19 vaccines are now being distributed and administered to what are deemed high risk populations. The goal is to eventually make the vaccine available to all. Nutrition 16:24 would like to provide credible resources to assist you in making an informed decision. We encourage you to research not only COVID-19 vaccines, but any and all vaccines you may be considering for yourself or a family member such as a child. Research ingredients, learn how vaccines work, and be familiar with any adverse associated reactions. Sounds daunting? We are hopeful that with the resources we provide below this task will not only be streamlined but also enlightening.
Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche has worked with the World Health Organization, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, and was previously the head of the vaccine development office at the German Center for Infection Research. In this video, he discusses the Covid-19 vaccine and its use amidst a pandemic.
The first resource is VAERS: the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. Established in 1990, VAERS is a reporting system that lists all adverse reactions reported after vaccination. You can search by symptom, by vaccine, by manufacturer, or by typing in a vaccine name. It is updated every Friday; you may even search for COVID-19 vaccine reactions.
You should see a long list with every adverse reaction reported. You may sort the reactions by number of events reported, or by percentage.
Note that the Department of Health and Human Services estimates that only 1% of vaccine reactions are reported to VAERS.
We have previously posted vaccination resources on our website that may be useful as you continue your research. For your convenience we are including them below.
