Did The Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Kill 6 Trial Volunteers?!
Antivaxxers and Google University doctors are warning that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine could be dangerous, possibly killing 6 trial volunteers!
Many of them are sharing news articles with clickbait headlines, or pictures with the warning, without context.
And most people only read the headlines, and just share the articles or pictures, with the out-of-context warnings.
These warnings and pictures have gone viral, together with warnings to avoid COVID-19 vaccines.
Did The Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Kill 6 People? Here Are The Facts!
Now, it is true that six people died in the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine trial, so many people are wondering :
- how did the vaccine kill them?
- how safe is the vaccine?
- why did they approve the vaccine for use, if it’s killing people?
Let’s break down the facts for you, so you can better weigh the risks and benefits for yourself.
Fact #1 : Only 2 Deaths Were From The Vaccine Group
While the headlines and viral pictures scream that six people died in the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine trial, the truth is only two of them received the vaccine.
The US FDA briefing document for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine stated very clearly that only two of them were from the group that received the vaccine. The other four deaths were from the group that received a placebo.
Fact #2 : Correlation Is Not Causation
As we earlier pointed out in our article on the Pfizer vaccine causing Bell’s palsy, correlation does not mean causation.
Just because something happened during the vaccine trial, it does NOT mean that the vaccine caused it.
For example, if you get infected with the flu virus after getting the COVID-19 vaccine, does it mean that the vaccine infected you with the flu virus? Of course, not.
Here is a famous example – showing how organic food sales correlated exactly with the incidence of autism. Can we therefore say that organic foods cause autism? Naturally, not.
Therefore, even though two people died after receiving the Pfizer BNT162b2 vaccine, we simply cannot say that the vaccine killed them. There is simply no data to support that conclusion.
Neither can anyone use this correlation to say that the vaccine is dangerous and can kill us. There is NO PROOF of that.
Fact #3 : The Deaths Were Within Normal Rates
Many people forget that people die every day, even if they don’t get the vaccine.
In the United States, about 2.8 million people died in 2018 – an average of 7,779 every single day, or 0.8678% of population per year.
From the 37,796 people who participated in the safety phase of the Pfizer BNT162b2 vaccine trial, we would expect 328 of them to die from “natural causes” this year, or 164 people in the roughly 6 month trial period.
Yet only 6 people died during the vaccine trial, instead of the expected 164. That’s a mortality rate of just 0.159% – 5.5X lower than the normal mortality rate.
Does that mean the vaccine and placebo protected them from natural causes of death? Again, correlation does not imply causation.
All deaths represent events that occur in the general population of the age groups where they occurred, at a similar rate.
Fact #4 : The Deaths Were Of Natural Causes
The US FDA briefing document also laid out the causes of those six deaths :
- Vaccine recipient #1 : >55 years old, cardiac arrest 62 days after second vaccination, died 3 days later
- Vaccine recipient #2 : >55 years old, died from atherosclerosis 3 days after first vaccination
- Placebo recipient #1 : myocardial infarction
- Placebo recipient #2 : haemorrhage stroke
- Placebo recipients #3 and #4 : unknown causes
Do they look like they were caused by the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine? They sure look like natural causes to me.
Fact #5 : COVID-19 Mortality Rate Is Roughly 2.3%
Based on the 10 December 2020 global statistics, the COVID-19 mortality rate is approximately 2.3% – 69.9 million people were infected, and 1.59 million of them died.
Compare that to the “risk” of getting dying from the Pfizer BNT162b2 vaccine – 0.0106% (2 out of 18,904 people), or the risk of dying naturally – 0.8678% per year.
In other words, the risk of dying from COVID-19 (after getting infected) is 217X higher than the potential risk of dying from the vaccine, and 2.7X higher than dying from natural causes.
Now that you know the odds, how would you like to bet your life?
