"One in 5,000 people is affected by a serious side effect after a COVID19 #vaccination. If you suspect #sideeffects, get medical attention and report your symptoms to @PEI_Germany," a tweet from the German Ministry of Health said.
It later tweeted a correction that the number 5,000 refers to doses instead of individuals: "Correction: According to @PEI_Germany, the reporting rate of serious reactions is 0.2 reports per 1,000 vaccine doses."
This is a strange and welcome admission from a government about the scope of injuries caused by the COVID vaccines.
Nevertheless, the one person in 5,000 doses figure is too low. The second tweet explained that it was a reporting rate of serious reactions, so probably it refers to the rate of adverse events reported to the German equivalent of Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). If that is the case, then there should be an underreporting factor of around 10, which means the real number of severe side effects may be 10 times higher.
One reason why the one person in 5,000 doses figure is low is due to deaths being counted separately from severe side effects. Deaths are counted as deaths, so the one person in 5,000 doses figure only covers people who were severely injured by the COVID shots and survived.
If a person died from the shot, either instantly or a few months later, they were never registered as a vaccine-injured person. (Related: UK hospital data shocks the world: 80% of COVID deaths are among the vaccinated... COVID deaths up 3,000% after vaccine wave.)
The Germans are in fact excellent at monitoring vaccine safety. Besides their passive reporting system, the German medicine regulator, the Paul Ehrlich Institute or PEI, manages an active vaccine safety monitoring app called SafeVac 2.0. The data from this monitoring tool was incorporated in a Europe-wide report on vaccine safety last month and it showed that 0.3 percent of vaccine recipients in Germany reported at least one severe adverse reaction to the first dose of the vaccine.
The report mentioned that of the 520,076 participants from Germany who had received the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, 1,838 (0.3 percent) reported experiencing at least one serious adverse reaction.
These German numbers are in accordance with the overall rates across Europe. It must be noted, however, that a rate of 0.3 percent is 15 times higher than the rate of 0.2 per 1,000 (i.e., 0.02 percent) as quoted in the tweet.
The big question is why the German government used the 0.02 percent figure instead of the 0.3 percent figure from its advanced vaccine safety monitoring tool when drawing attention to vaccine side effects.
Concerns about high rates of severe vaccine side effects have been raised before in Germany. In May, Professor Harald Matthes, a scientist heading an independent study into the safety of the vaccines, stated that based on his data around 0.8 percent of vaccinated people in Germany have experienced severe side effects.
The figure is not surprising since it agrees with what is known from other countries like Sweden, Israel and Canada. Even the manufacturers of the vaccines may have already known this during their studies.
Meanwhile, an Israeli government survey found that 0.3 percent of vaccinated people reported being hospitalized as a result of their COVID vaccination, while a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) survey discovered that 0.9 percent of vaccinated people reported seeking medical care as a result of their vaccination.
