(Republican Insider) – Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a man who is widely known for his personal activism against vaccines of practically any kind, has come under heavy fire from critics after he made the claim during an interview on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program that COVID vaccines are far more deadly than all of the vaccines that have been created over the last 30 years combined.
According to WND, Kennedy, during a segment of his Fox Nation interview that Carlson aired as part of his nightly program Monday, went on to cite data from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, also known as VAERS.
“There have been 17,000 deaths reported to VAERS from the COVID vaccines,” Kennedy, the son of the former attorney general and New York senator and the nephew of President John F. Kennedy, went on to say during the interview.
“And that’s more, in the last eight months, than all vaccines – the billions and billions of vaccines – combined over the past 30 years. This vaccine appears to be killing more people than all vaccines combined,” he added.
“Health and Human Services points out that a VAERS report is not documentation that a link has been established between a vaccine and an adverse event. However, HHS also notes that VAERS is a ‘passive’ system of reporting, and it ‘receives reports for only a small fraction of actual adverse events,'” the report stated.
Many health care workers have also disclosed that they have been instructed by their supervisors to not report any harm that is caused by the coronavirus vaccine to VAERS.
Kennedy then went on to argue during his appearance on the program that physicians have a disincentive to report any kind of negative consequences that come about as a result of getting the vaccine that they are advocating so hard for their patients to get.
“The organization Kennedy founded, Children’s Health Defense, says it’s not against vaccines but raises issues about their safety,” WND says.
“Kennedy famously has claimed that mercury in vaccines has ’caused an autism epidemic,’ drawing the ire of immunologists and health-care professionals,” the report continued.
The media news site Mediaite slammed Kennedy’s claim concerning deaths from the vaccine by calling it “nutso” in the headline. Not shocking at all. These folks are just as much in the pocket of Big Pharma as other media companies.
“Mediaite cited Dr. Pradheep J. Shanker, a radiologist in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, who said in a May interview that Tucker Carlson was not providing an accurate assessment of the vaccine deaths reported by VAERS,” WND reports.
“VAERS was intended to cast a wide net to capture any possible or potential complication that even has the remotest possibility of being related to the vaccine. Any adverse event is considered reportable,” Shanker proclaimed. “This ranges from direct symptoms, such as fevers or hematomas, to events such as death from blunt trauma in a car accident (which, of course, is highly unlikely to be related to the vaccine).”
He then stated that show host Carlson “did nothing to filter out which deaths were expected with or without the vaccine, and which deaths can be tied to the vaccine.” And critics of the vaccines, the doctor said, “often omit, however, is the fact that the Covid vaccine was first administered to the oldest and most medically vulnerable people nearly a year ago.”
However, the website known as “OpenVAERS,” which compiles summaries of the information that is available on VAERS then noted an analysis known as the “Lazarus Report,” which came to the conclusion that VAERS only represents about 1 percent of vaccine injuries.
“As of Nov. 5, the VAERS count of COVID vaccine deaths was 18,461. The total vaccine adverse events was 1,720,302,” the report added.
