Children’s Health Defense (CHD) has joined with Doctors for COVID Ethics and other organizations around the globe to encourage and make it easy for healthcare professionals and vaccine recipients to report injuries and adverse reactions to any vaccines, including COVID vaccines.
CHD and Doctors for COVID Ethics urge all healthcare professionals who are aware of a vaccine adverse event, and anyone who suspects they have suffered any kind of adverse side effect — from any vaccine — to report these injuries. This information is critical in the assessment of vaccine safety.
There are three ways to report an adverse event:
- VaxxTracker International for physicians and healthcare professionals.
- VaxxTracker International for consumers.
- U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) for consumers and healthcare providers.
VaxxTracker gives people a safe place to report symptoms they believe resulted from a vaccine.
For consumers and healthcare professionals who are eligible to report to VAERS, we recommend reporting to this government-run system, as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are monitoring the adverse events reported to VAERS.
All users of VaxxTracker can view charts and graphs illustrating the types of symptoms being reported, as well as the number of symptoms associated with specific vaccines and other trends.
The VaxxTracker portal for healthcare professionals offers the following features:
- Confidentiality: Healthcare professionals who file reports are encouraged, but not required, to share their personal information along with their report. VaxxTracker gives healthcare providers an opportunity to do so once they have completed the case report. Any personal information shared will be stored in encrypted form only.
- Professional data management and evaluation: The back end of the website is powered by the VaxxTracker web application, which stores and manages the data securely. The data will be evaluated by professional epidemiologists and medical experts.
- Data integrity: The data will be left intact as entered. No filed records will be memory-holed because they do not fit preconceived notions or narratives.
- Language support: VaxxTracker uses an internationalized medical terminology. Chances are healthcare professionals will be able to file a report in their own language.
- Country-specific reporting: VaxxTracker is able to generate reports specific to the countries who participate in providing data. This is especially important for those countries that don’t have the infrastructure to create their own vaccine adverse event reporting systems.
The purpose of VaxxTracker is to provide the global public with truthful information about adverse reactions to the COVID vaccines, in particular. To achieve this, we need your support:
- If you are a healthcare professional, and you have first-hand, accurate information about a specific occurrence of an adverse event, please file a case report.
- Regardless of whether or not you have a report to file, please help raise awareness for the VaxxTracker site by sharing it on social media and bringing it to the attention of physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals who may have first-hand information to share.
“With vaccines so much in the spotlight now, we have a tremendous opportunity to draw attention to the issues of vaccine safety and vaccine choice,” said CHD President Emerita Lyn Redwood, RN, MSN. “But we need help from the public and healthcare professionals. That’s why CHD has joined in this effort with Doctors for COVID Ethics to ensure that vaccine injuries are reported, so they can be analyzed and appropriate actions can be taken.”
CHD, Doctors for COVID Ethics and other organizations will closely monitor adverse event reports collected by VaxxTracker to follow trends and report signals to the responsible federal agencies, the vaccine manufacturers and the public, Redwood said.
“The pandemic has resulted in the largest-ever massive global effort to convince, and in some cases coerce and bully people, into not only being vaccinated, but to accept without question unlicensed, experimental vaccines, rushed to market and approved for emergency use only,” Redwood said.
“Instead of focusing on prevention and effective therapeutics, the mainstream media, aided by slick PR campaigns, continue to report that all COVID vaccines are safe and effective, and that they are the only way to end the pandemic.”
The Defender recently reported that VAERS data (released July 30) show that between Dec. 14, 2020 and July 23, 2021, a total of 518,770 adverse events were reported to VAERS, including 11,940 deaths — an increase of 535 over the previous week. There were 63,102 serious injuries reported during the same time period — up 14,717 compared with the previous week.
By law, Redwood said, healthcare workers are required to report any adverse events they suspect may be related to a vaccine, but historically, this hasn’t always happened. Sometimes, the side effect didn’t occur immediately, and neither the patient nor the doctor connected the dots between the vaccine and the symptoms.
A 2010 federal study commissioned by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and performed by Harvard consultants on behalf of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality found that fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are ever reported to VAERS.
In his Dec. 18 letter to Dr. David Kessler, newly named co-chair of then-president-elect Biden’s COVID-19 Advisory Committee, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., CHD chairman and chief legal counsel, said regulatory officials can’t count on post-marketing surveillance to reveal COVID-19 vaccine injuries because VAERS “is broken.”
“COVID vaccine advocates argue that post-licensing surveillance will remedy the deficiencies in the pre-licensing clinical trial data collection system. As you know, this is not true. The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), a voluntary reporting system co-administered by FDA and CDC since 1990, is a well-documented public failure.”
“VAERS clearly states that it is a ‘passive reporting system,’” Redwood said. “That means HHS isn’t going out of its way to track vaccine injuries — the system is totally dependent on people who are injured to do the reporting. It’s critical, as employers and health officials recommend mandating COVID vaccines, that all injuries get reported.”
