CDC Knowingly Left Serious Adverse Events Off Post-Vaccination Surveys, Documents Show
re: ethics in medicine
Can there be more to the story, any mitigating factor, that would cause an agency ostensibly concerned with safety to leave out the most concerning issues that might occur?
The Epoch Times: CDC Knowingly Left Serious Adverse Events Off Post-Vaccination Surveys, Documents Show
2023-01-19, by Zachary Stieber. Emphasis added.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) didn’t include serious adverse events like heart inflammation on post-vaccination surveys even though the agency knew the issues could be linked to COVID-19 vaccines, documents show.
Even before the surveys were rolled out in December 2020 after the first vaccines were authorized, the CDC knew that myocarditis—a form of heart inflammation since confirmed as being caused by the Pfizer and Moderna shots—and other serious adverse events were of “special interest” when it came to the vaccines, according to a newly disclosed version of the protocol for the survey system.
The Nov. 19, 2020, protocol (pdf) for V-safe, the survey system, lists myocarditis, stroke, death, and a dozen “prespecified medical conditions.” The protocol was obtained by the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN), a nonprofit that seeks transparency around health information. All of the conditions can cause severe symptoms.
...None of the conditions were included in the actual surveys.
Respondents could check boxes if they experienced certain symptoms, but only 10 lower-level problems such as fever and nausea were listed as options.
“It’s deeply troubling that the CDC would construct V-safe in a manner that does not permit it to be able to easily assess the rate of harm from adverse events the CDC had already identified as potentially being caused by these products,” Aaron Siri, a lawyer representing ICAN, told The Epoch Times. “This calls into question what the CDC was really trying to accomplish with V-safe. Was it trying to assess the actual safety of these products? Or was it trying to design a system that would be more likely to affirm its previous public pronouncements regarding the safety of these products?”
The CDC did not respond to a request for comment for this article.
... V-safe users could report the serious adverse events, but only if they wrote them out in a free-text field... The CDC has resisted releasing the results from the field, insisting that it would be too onerous to review the 6.8 million entries for personally identifiable information (PII), according to a joint status report made to the court in November 2022.
WIND: if you are not measuring it, you are not managing it. Which is the whole idea when an agency is captive, and must serve the will of its political and Big Pharma masters, not to mention preserving its own facade of authority by never admitting to mistakes or misinformation.
An individual is presumed innocent until proven guilty. A corporation or government that will not divulge information and explain its actions in detail must be presumed guilty as the only rational assumption.
In my own experience, MD’s have little time or interest in reporting side effects. And given the intimidation and brutality shown to doctors by their institutions and the media were they to speak out, how many doctors are going to seend that time and energy and take that beating to report COVID side effects? Especially when the vast bulk of Jabs were given assembly-line fashion? And when most doctors are no different from the rest of us: herd animals.
I hesitate to sign up for the “vaccine damage” theories that abound on the internet today eg the excess deaths thing which has so many possible explanations vs the “Jab induced” assumptions it seems so easy to make. Will we ever get credible answers to just how much damage and death the gene therapy Jab caused, whether a little or a lot?
It will takes years to play out in the form of other health problems that must be assigned a cause. For example, if the spike proteins of the gene therapy Jab caused sub clinical micro vascular damage all over the body, what does that mean for you 10 or 20 or 30 years later? Who would even notice after the Jab or a year later? No-one in the medical profession, that is certain. The hapless Jabee might have some vague sense of unwellness for some length of time, but given that poor health is the the health state of most people, such people might not remark upon a somewhat crappier feeling at all, chalking it up to that extra burger.
