I have. My loved ones are all vaccinated. I honestly am unaware of a single person in my social circles that is unvaccinated- aside from ineligible children. No one has died or had adverse reactions to the vaccine. I know of multiple people in my social circles with long COVID-19 or with parents who died of COVID-19 before vaccines were available.
I stand by my statement earlier:
I can’t tell if you’ve been horribly misinformed or if you’re attempting to confuse people into distrusting everything. That is generally how misinformation is most effective.
The misinformer doesn’t need to convince others of anything in order to have an impact. They merely need to make others distrust institutions in order to sow chaos. Unfortunately, such chaos in this instance can result in illness and death.
Here is a link to CDC website dispelling vaccine myths:
In case you are simply the misinformed and not a true misinformer, here is a resource from the UK government to help you identify if the sources you are using are actually reliable:
In addition, please consider who benefits from your sowing misinformation.
VAERS clearly states:
“ When evaluating data from VAERS, it is important to note that for any reported event, no cause-and-effect relationship has been established. Reports of all possible associations between vaccines and adverse events (possible side effects) are filed in VAERS. Therefore, VAERS collects data on any adverse event following vaccination, be it coincidental or truly caused by a vaccine. The report of an adverse event to VAERS is not documentation that a vaccine caused the event…
…A report to VAERS generally does not prove that the identified vaccine(s) caused the adverse event described. It only confirms that the reported event occurred sometime after vaccine was given. No proof that the event was caused by the vaccine is required in order for VAERS to accept the report. VAERS accepts all reports without judging whether the event was caused by the vaccine.”
An additional disclaimer:
“ Key considerations and limitations of VAERS data:
- Vaccine providers are encouraged to report any clinically significant health problem following vaccination to VAERS, whether or not they believe the vaccine was the cause.
- Reports may include incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental and unverified information.
- The number of reports alone cannot be interpreted or used to reach conclusions about the existence, severity, frequency, or rates of problems associated with vaccines.
- VAERS data is limited to vaccine adverse event reports received between 1990 and the most recent date for which data are available.
- VAERS data do not represent all known safety information for a vaccine and should be interpreted in the context of other scientific information.
VAERS data available to the public include only the initial report data to VAERS. Updated data which contains data from medical records and corrections reported during follow up are used by the government for analysis. However, for numerous reasons including data consistency, these amended data are not available to the public.”
