The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)

Which of the following statements are ideas expounded upon by members of The World Economic Forum or others within the main stream media?

  1. World population growth is unsustainable with a population over 500 million.
  2. Vaccines can help reduce the population.
  3. Vaccine-hesitant people are a danger to everyone.

If you guessed all three, you earned yourself a gold star.

In this edition, I’ll be tackling the Health and Human Services’ Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). This system has been in use for several decades, chronicling incidents of people reporting adverse reactions from vaccine injections. These reports can be made by individuals as well as by doctors…if the doctors dare to do so.

Several years ago, the US Health and Human Services commissioned Harvard to review the VAERS and to report on their findings and recommendations. The conclusion was that VAERS was capturing less than 1 percent of all of the actual vaccine adverse events that were occurring. Keep this information in mind as I continue.

If you go to the VAERS website, you may find it a bit confusing, and that is probably not by accident. It is difficult to understand how to navigate the website and, if you find information you like, it may be in a different location the next time you look for it.

One site that has attempted to make sense of the data is here. They state up front that some case numbers are reported multiple times, making a truly accurate count very difficult. One look at the way the data is structured tells you why Harvard suggested scrapping this system for one that could actually be useful.

As an analyst, I decided I would go directly to the data and explore it myself rather than trusting the same people who are making money on the vaccines (actually gene therapy injections). This path has been a real eye-opener, to say the least.

There are two ways to get to the numbers. One is to use their Wonders program (it should probably be named Magic, although one wonders how they came up with the numbers if you use the “actual” data – that is the other avenue. So I will talk you through the “actual data” first.

You can find the actual data files here. Scroll down to near the bottom of the page and select the VAERS Data button. This will take you where the data can be downloaded. You can get all three in a zip file or you can download each separately. The data I will show is only 2021 data and will only look at COVID19 vaccines. You will need at least two of the three files (one must be the file titled VAERSDATA which is the master file (it only has one entry per VAERS_ID; the others have multiple records for single VAERS_ID numbers which makes it impossible to just get the data and put it in a spreadsheet with any accuracy) in order to figure out if the shots were for COVID as there are shots that cover any and all diseases within the data.

My “weapons” of choice are Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Access. I will use Excel to clean the data in the VAX and SYMPTOMS files. Both have multiple entries for the same VAERS_ID. Some even apparently give the same VAERS_ID to people in different states. The SYMPTOMS file only allows 5 symptoms to be entered. This did not stop those entering data, though. If there were more than 5 symptoms, the VAERS_ID was used again to add the next 5. In fact, there are many times where a VAERS_ID was used more than 10 times to list all of the symptoms!

For each of the files, after placing them in Excel as .xlsm files, I added columns with formulas to assist in paring the data so that only one entry was used for each VAERS_ID in order to match them with the VAERS_IDs in the VAERSDATA file. That matchup is also going to take some magic. Anyway, after creating the formulas and adding them to the appropriate files, I also wrote some Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code to automate the final process of getting rid of multiple VAERS_ID entries without losing data such as symptoms greater than 5.

After collecting data on three different occasions and cleansing it, I found I could not get anywhere near what their Wonder program got. My fun meter in this endeavor has been pegged and I will not waste any more time on it. If you are able to figure it out and get the same numbers Wonder gets, I’d be glad to hear from you on how you did it.

One final note: There is another site called where you can see pretty much what Wonder gives you. In openVaers FAQ page you can find the parameters they use to get the numbers they get, at least for the deaths.

The bottom line is: the governments of the world are lying when they say these “vaccines” are safe and effective. They are neither. Many have taken the experimental injection because they were told they could get their lives back to normal. This was another lie…until we all stop participating in this madness, nothing will ever get anywhere near normal and will only continue to get more bizzarre.

“Fight and you may die. Run, and you’ll live… at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin’ to trade all the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take… our freedom!” – Mel Gibson as William Wallace in the movie “Braveheart”
