Reporting states fifty-five people who took COVID-19 vaccines have died in the United States.

Some died within several days to hours after taking the COVID-19 vaccines.

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) reported the deaths of whom took the first doses of Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech Vaccines.


Anyone can make a file the reporting system, that is family members, health care providers or patients.

A lacking in details is common with the system that can sometimes contain errors. Reports on VAERS say that there are only a small fraction of actual adverse events. For serious events, it is less common.

On January 4 a 93-year-old South Dakota man was injected with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. Within two hours, he reported feeling tired; not being able to continue with physical therapy that he was doing before the jab. He said his legs felt heavy after being taken to his room, and he later stopped breathing. A nurse declared a resuscitate order.

The VERS website does not have a ‘vaccine caused adverse event’ option meaning that there can be no proof supplied to back an event where someone may die by a vaccine-related symptom or after-effect.

The FDA reportedly ‘investigates’ deaths following vaccines’ administration, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). However, they reportedly do not have a central database of reported adverse events.

A rate of 11.1 per million of vaccinations given contains a sort of severe allergic reaction to a patient, compared to the rate of 1.3 per 1 million from flu shots. 10.5 million Americans have as of January 15 received the COVID-19 vaccine.

Health officials at a federal level say they are investigating the events but say vaccines are supposedly safe to take.


A medical worker at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami, Florida, named Gregory Michael who is aged 56 was injected on December 18 of 2020. He died sixteen days later.

Michael’s wife Heidi Neckelmann made a Facebook post saying her husband was very healthy prior to vaccination.

He was sent to an intensive care unit diagnosed with a blood disorder, acute idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. A reaction to the vaccine caused it.

“The love of my life, my husband Gregory Michael MD an Obstetrician that had his office in Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach Died the day before yesterday due to a strong reaction to the COVID vaccine,” Neckelmann wrote.


“He was a very healthy 56-year-old, loved by everyone in the community delivered hundreds of healthy babies and worked tirelessly through the pandemic. He was a pro-vaccine advocate that is why he got it himself.”

“I believe that people should be aware that side effects can happen, that it is not good for everyone and in this case destroyed a beautiful life, a perfect family, and has affected so many people in the community.”

Pfizer claimed to media outlets, that they hold no evidence showing a link between their vaccines and deaths after taking them.

“Pfizer and BioNTech are aware of the death of a health care professional 16 days after receiving the first dose of BNT162b2,” Pfizer said in the statement.

“It is a highly unusual clinical case of severe thrombocytopenia, a condition that decreases the body’s ability to clot blood and stop internal bleeding.”

“We are actively investigating this case, but we don’t believe at this time that there is any direct connection to the vaccine. There have been no related safety signals identified in our clinical trials, the post-marketing experience thus far, or with the mRNA vaccine platform.”

“To date, millions of people have been vaccinated, and we are closely monitoring all adverse events in individuals receiving our vaccine.”

“It is important to note that serious adverse events, including deaths that are unrelated to the vaccine, are unfortunately likely to occur at a similar rate as they would in the general population.”
