Estimates show that there will be four fatal and 16 serious side effects per 100,000 covid vaccinations, say research scientists Harald Walach, Rainer J. Klement, and Wouter Aukema.
If true, in New Zealand’s population of five million, 200 people could die due the covid jab if everyone is vaccinated against covid.
The scientists also say that covid jabs will save between two and 11 people per 100,000 vaccinations.
In a detailed report, the scientists conclude that their present assessment raises the question on whether it would be necessary for governments to rethink policies and use covid-19 vaccines more sparingly and with some discretion only in those that are willing to accept the risk because they feel more at risk from the true infection than the mock infection.
“Perhaps it might be necessary to dampen the enthusiasm by sober facts?” they write. “In our view, the EMA and national authorities should instigate a safety review into the safety database of covid-19 vaccines and governments should carefully consider their policies in light of these data.
“Ideally, independent scientists should carry out thorough case reviews of the very severe cases, so that there can be evidence-based recommendations on who is likely to benefit from a SARS-CoV2 vaccination and who is in danger of suffering from side effects.
“Currently, our estimates show that we have to accept four fatal and 16 serious side effects per 100,000 vaccinations in order to save the lives of two to 11 individuals per 100,000 vaccinations, placing risks and benefits on the same order of magnitude.”
