VAERS – COVID-19 Vaccine Injuries and Deaths Reporting System (USA)

VAERS is a voluntary reporting system that was put in place by the U.S. Government in 1990. It allows healthcare works as well as the general public to report vaccine injuries following the administration of a vaccine.

VAERS is however little know both among healthcare workers and the public. So, not unsurprisingly it is widely estimated that less than 1% of actual vaccine injuries are reported. (See the Lazarus Report). This means that you will likely get a more accurate figure by adding two zeros to any of the figures shown.

VAERS is actually quite complex to use and to obtain the data you might be looking for. It really isn’t a very user friendly system to use (perhaps deliberately so).

The OpenVAERS Project allows you to browse and search through the VAERS database in a much simpler way without the need to compose an advanced search (more advanced searches can be done at or

Whilst you likely have been told that the COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, the reports you’ll see on the VAERS system tells an altogether different story! This is especially true if you remember to add the two zeros to the numbers you are seeing.

For example, looking at the number of reported COVID-19 vaccine deaths to May 27, 2022 of 28,532, based n the estimated less than 1% of injuries being reported, adding two zeros provides a closer representation of the true number of COVID-19 vaccine deaths of 2,853,200! And the total number of reported injuries of 1,287,593 becomes 128,759,300!
