German PEI report fuels fear of long-term vaccine damage

Thrombosis, cerebral haemorrhage, heart attacks, facial paralysis and more: the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI) in Germany has reported almost 5000 suspected serious side effects and 524 deaths after Covid-19 vaccinations. However, the unknown long-term consequences may be much more dangerous than we think.

    The “undesirable reactions” of the vaccination have so far received little media attention. Regardless of massive side effects and deaths, the vaccination propaganda continues. AstraZeneca, despite the high risk, is now given to younger people and in Germany, mobile vaccination teams visit supermarkets and socially disadvantaged areas. The vaccine from Pfizer/BioNTech will even be given to children aged twelve and over from August – although they almost never get Covid-19.

    It may be a political medical scandal in the making because the new “safety report” published on May 7 by PEI admits that an unreported number of deaths can be assumed.

    By April 30, the PEI listed almost 50 000 reported suspected cases of relevant “adverse reactions” to Covid-19 vaccinations. Only 41 percent of this had subsided at the time of reporting.

    In total, the PEI reported almost 5000 vaccinated people who had suffered severe reactions and eleven percent of them, that is 524 people, died. The institute recorded the highest number of side effects with the vaccine Vaxzevria from AstraZeneca. However, Pfizer/BioNTech’s Comirnaty vaccine had a record number of deaths based on vaccine doses administered.

    Based on the PEI figures, in relative terms, this means: For every million AstraZeneca doses administered, the institute recorded a total of 4585 “adverse reactions”, of which 387 were serious and nine were fatal.

    For every million Moderna doses administered, there are 1862 reported “adverse reactions”, of which 110 are severe and seven are fatal. For every million Pfizer/BioNTech doses injected, the PEI reported a total of 955 side effects, 112 of them severe – but also 21 deaths.

    According to the PEI, a total of 28,8 million vaccine doses were administered in Germany by April 30, 2021, 21,3 million of which contained the serum from Pfizer/BioNTech, 5,8 million contained the vaccine from AstraZeneca and around 1, 7 million that of Moderna.

    It should be noted, however, that the number of vaccine doses does not match the test subjects because the people are vaccinated twice. The vaccine from Johnson & Johnson (Janssen), which was administered only once and only recently received conditional approval, has so far been given to 2106 people, and the authorities recorded three suspected adverse reactions.

    Women in particular seem to suffer from serious side effects. According to the report, three quarters of those affected were women. The PEI attributes this to the fact that so far more women than men have been vaccinated. The PEI does not include the proportion of vaccine subjects in terms of gender. The institute also leaves the gender of the 524 reported deceased open. Some 58 people died after being vaccinated for Covid-19 – which raises questions about the effectiveness of the vaccinations.

    Most of the dead, the PEI said, had “multiple previous illnesses”, “such as carcinoma, renal insufficiency, heart disease and arteriosclerotic changes, which were presumably the cause of death”. Some 18 people vaccinated with AstraZeneca succumbed to a cerebral vein thrombosis, four women with a cerebral haemorrhage. According to the PEI, twelve suspected vaccine deaths were younger than 40, and another 39 were between 40 and 59 years old. And 90 other people died between the ages of 60 and 79, while the rest were older.

    AstraZeneca’s Vaxzevria vaccine “very rarely” triggered a double reaction: a cerebral vein thrombosis with a simultaneous lack of blood platelets, a so-called thrombocytopenia, called TTS in technical jargon, which can lead to internal bleeding. This thrombocytopenia is presumably triggered by an autoimmune reaction. “Very rarely” means: Less than one in 10 000 vaccinated people is affected.

    It may be limited to this double reaction, although both can also occur independently – and apparently much more frequently. In any case, TTS cases had been reported to the institute 67 times by April 30. Of these, 14 people died – nine dead, according to the PEI, were younger than 50 years. As of April 21, the PEI had reported 34 TTS cases in its “current information”, including twelve deceased. Some 29 other people vaccinated with AstraZeneca had “only” suffered a cerebral vein thrombosis.

    Cases of TTS have only occurred with Vaxzevria from AstraZeneca, according to the PEI. What it hides in the report, however: By April 21, it recorded twelve cerebral vein thrombosis without additional platelet deficiency after vaccinations with Comirnaty from Pfizer/BioNTech. This also resulted in deaths: three of these victims had died by the time this report was made. And: According to a study by the University of Oxford, thrombosis generally occurs just as often with the mRNA vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech as with the vector vaccine from AstraZeneca.

    As with Vaxzevria, the Coronavirus RNA is also transported by a vector virus in the Janssen vaccination. On April 26, the company also warned of a “very rare combination of thrombosis and thrombocytopenia, in some cases accompanied by bleeding”, especially in women under 60 years of age. Signs of this include shortness of breath, chest pain, leg swelling, stomach pain, severe headache, blurred vision or bruises.

    As important as it is to report on the TTS combination, cerebral vein thrombosis and thrombocytopenia in themselves are already dangerous health impairments. And according to AstraZeneca, these occur much more frequently than communicated at Vaxzevria. An EMA analysis estimated that this autoimmune reaction occurred in one to ten out of a hundred people vaccinated, as reported by the German edition of RT.

    The biochemist Christian Steidl explained on, that only vaccinated people with symptoms were examined. Specific symptoms do not always appear immediately, but with autoimmune diseases these only get worse over time. He also writes: “So far, the symptom-free vaccinees have not been tested for whether they have this disease in the early stages. If antibodies against platelet factor 4 (PF4) are present in the blood, it can be concluded that immunothrombocytopenia is present.”

    Steidl demanded an immediate vaccination halt. Even if “only” one percent of all vaccinated people are affected by this reaction, action must be taken immediately. Because autoimmune diseases usually get worse over time. Anyone who apparently tolerated the vaccination well could suffer a cerebral vein thrombosis after years, for example. “Nobody knows that right now,” explained Steidl.

    The PEI described a few other serious vaccine reactions that have occurred in more detail in their latest report. A total of 223 people had suffered anaphylactic shock, also an autoimmune reaction. In addition, there were 61 heart attacks, twelve brain infections, 99 facial paralysis cases and 16 heart muscle infections.

    Also included were twenty cases of Guillain-Barrè syndrome, which means damage to the nerves, especially in the spinal cord, with sometimes severe motor dysfunction such as paralysis, which persists for life in every fifth person affected and leads to death in five percent of all cases. All vaccines were affected, while heart disease only affects younger people, especially men. Age information on the other side effects was however missing in the report.

    All in all, it appears as if, contrary to previous medical standards, the manufacturers completely refrained from weighing up the risks and benefits. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) ascribes a high level of effectiveness to the vaccines, but then states: “How long the vaccination protection lasts is not yet known. Protection does not start immediately after vaccination, and some vaccinated people remain unprotected.”

    It can be assumed, according to the RKI, that people “can be infected symptomatically and asymptomatically despite vaccination and thereby excrete SARS-CoV-2”, that is, they are contagious. It is therefore necessary that vaccinated people continue to adhere to the hygiene rules and wear masks.

    FREEZING IN THEIR HOMES is the new grim reality for many Brits and Northern Europeans. Margaret is 92 years old and has just come in from the winter cold, but no warmth awaits her at home. She fears her own home more than the icy streets. Next to her are four thick blankets, and on the shelf above the fireplace, which she can no longer afford to buy wood for, is a meter showing the daily cost of electricity (inset). It shows £1.03, about 13 SEK. When it reaches £3, about 38 SEK, she is forced to turn off the little heat she has to afford it. Still image: ITW News

    Brits Forced to Live in Darkness and Cold

    Food prices are rising at a furious pace, fastest in Scotland in almost half a century. At the same time, energy prices are at record highs. People are forced to choose between freezing or going hungry, and a majority of Scots are forced to live in cold and darkness to cope with bills. Old generations' tricks for saving and keeping warm are returning. Nevertheless, it is feared that 10,000 Brits will die of cold homes this winter. We present the Swedish Public Health Agency's guidelines on indoor temperature. Governments in Europe are introducing rationing and monitoring of food purchases. Net-zero emissions are a lie that, in practice, de-industrializes the West and dramatically lowers our standard of living.
