The FDA, CDC and NIH Do Not Want Adverse Drug Reactions Counted

Executive Summary

  • The FDA, CDC, and NIH promote the safety of drugs, but none of them want the public to know about adverse reactions.


The FDA, CDC, and NIH do not like the public knowing about the adverse reactions of drugs, and this is because of the deep financial ties between these agencies and the pharmaceutical companies. This article covers how all of these agencies do their utmost to hide adverse reactions from the public.

The Poor Safety Record of The Covid Vaccines

This article addresses the overall issue of the suppression and undercounting of adverse drug reactions by health authorities, but let us begin by reviewing the safety record of the covid vaccines.

  • We covered the effectiveness of the vaccines in a separate article, How Effective Are the Covid Vaccines.
  • On the other side of effectiveness is the safety of the vaccines — or the potential of the vaccines to harm. Their safety is described in the following quotation.

After 1,517,211 injuries and 9,027 deaths following the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines recorded in the U.S. Government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), the FDA today gave full approval to the Pfizer COVID-19 injections for people over the age of 16. – Vaccine Impact

Here is a graphic from VAERS. Remember that the number keeps increasing as time passes, and it is estimated that VAERS captures around 1% of the actual number of adverse reactions.

Besides the U.S. VAERS, the British Yellow Card reporting system for injuries and deaths following COVID-19 vaccines reports 501 deaths and 293,779 injuries following Pfizer COVID-19 injections. (Source.)

EudraVigilance, the European Union database of suspected drug reaction reports for COVID-19 vaccines, reports 10,616 deaths and 833,498 injuries following Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines. (Tally here, source here.)

Today is a historic day in the United States, because no pharmaceutical product linked to so many deaths and injuries during its trial period has ever before been approved by the FDA.

Just from Europe and the U.S., official government reporting systems list a total of 20,144 deaths and 2,644,488 adverse reactions following Pfizer’s injections.

We know that these reported numbers, directly from official government health organizations, are severely under-reported, as doctors and other medical personnel are pressured to NOT link these deaths and injuries to the COVID-19 shots.

We also know that the same thing is happening in many other countries around the world, as we reported last week that official media sources in Brazil admit that over 32,000 people have died following COVID-19 shots, and one of the approved shots in Brazil is the Pfizer/BioNTech shot. – Vaccine Impact

And this quote.

EU/EEA/Switzerland to 28 August 2021 – 23,252 Covid-19 injection related deaths and 2,166,285 injuries, per EudraVigilance Database.

UK to 18 August 2021 – 1,609 Covid-19 injection related deaths and 1,165,636 injuries, per MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.

USA to 20 August 2021 – 13,627 Covid-19 injection related deathsand 2,932,001 injuries, per VAERS database.

TOTAL for EU/UK/USA – 38,488 Covid-19 injection related deaths and 6,263,922 injuries reported as of 30 August 2021.

Nota Bene:

It is important to be aware that the official figures above (reported to the health authorities) are but a small percentage (1 to 10%) of the actual figures. – Vaccine Impact

Observe that the adverse reactions and deaths from the vaccines are entirely uncovered in the establishment media. And they are also uncovered by the CDC because the CDC is a PR front end for the pharmaceutical industry, expressed in the following quotation.

The CDC’s Involvement in Supressing Adverse Events

There are several methods the CDC uses to suppress adverse events.

Step #1: Keep Quiet on Adverse Events

Do not discuss adverse events, only discuss the benefits of drugs.

Step #2: Say The Numbers Are Still Being Calculated

This is a long-term pattern by the CDC to never report any number unless it fits with the ability to put the drug in the most positive light. And also extends to when things like deaths are reported. When Omicron became the dominant strain of covid because the deaths were so low, the CDC decided to say that the data was still coming in. The CDC did not want the real numbers published as it would have contributed to “vaccine hesitancy.” In addition to omitting numbers, the CDC publishes falsified numbers as is covered in the article How The CDC Rigged the Count of Adverse Reactions From The Covid Vaccines With A 14 Day Lag.

This is shown in the following video.

The CDC does not exist to educate the public, but to serve as a propaganda and marketing apparatus for pharma companies. 

Step #3: Massively Underinvest in Adverse Event Tracking

Put minimal resources into the VAERS adverse reaction database. This allows the CDC to say they have a database, but to ensure that the number of adverse reactions is comically underreported.

The CDC’s History of Underfunding Their Adverse Reaction Database

This lack of interest in having the true adverse reactions properly counted is explained in the following quotation.

For example, when a government-commissioned study highlighted VAERS inadequacies in 2010 — estimating more than 99% of vaccine adverse reactions were going unreported and that one of every 39 doses of vaccine administered was linked to adverse events corroborated in vaccine package inserts — the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) simply shut the project down. – The Defender

The CDC created a PPR tool, which was used to hide adverse reaction incidence.

“[O]ne vaccine that kills and cripples 20 or 50 or 1,000 times as much as a very safe vaccine will show the same PRR … and no safety signal will be identified by the CDC. By design … [E]ven if I take a cell … and plug in some enormous number like 1500, there is still no safety signal as per CDC definitions.” [Emphasis in original]

As Crawford points out, these undeniable mathematical patterns cannot help but raise suspicions that the PRR function is designed to “establish an illusion of safety” and provide “a reason to ignore the true signs of danger.” – The Defender
