The point of this post is to illustrate that adverse events are occurring in Canada in response to the COVID-19 vaccines–some very serious.
This is a documented fact by the Canadian government–and this provides an additional reason why these products should not be coerced, besides the fact that informed consent is required by international and domestic laws which many Canadians in the private and public sectors insist on violating.
Canadian government web page: Reported side effects following COVID-19 vaccination in Canada
We update this page every Friday at 12:00 PM Eastern Time. . . .
This report was last updated on December 24, 2021 with data up to and including December 17, 2021.
Data Notes #1 at the bottom of the page includes the following:
. . . These delays may be due to jurisdictions investigating and reviewing each adverse event prior to submitting the information to PHAC. There are also limitations to reporting practices such as underreporting ….
We don’t know how many adverse events there actually were. I can’t take these numbers as being close to the actual numbers.
Above Figure 4: Text Description, it states:
Please note that one report represents one person and may contain information on more than one adverse event.
Go to Figure 4, click “Show More Adverse Events.” The graph shows “Number [or Rate] of the most frequently reported adverse events by vaccine type up to and including December 17, 2021 (n=81,780)”
That means “81,780” events have been reported.
To see the actual numbers, use “Figure 4: Text Description” below the graph, which shows a table.
Only the most frequently reported events are reported in the graph and in this table. The numbers are shown for the three types of vaccines also: Pfizer-BioNTech Comirnaty, Moderna Spikevax and AstraZeneca Vaxzevria/COVISHIELD, but I am just using the total number of events for all three.
These most frequent events are (sorted in order from most to least frequent). If they’re not explained in brackets, I include a definition with a link in square brackets.
Note that this chart doesn’t indicate how severe the particular event types are, e.g. headaches (manufacturer studies do distinguish these).
I have highlighted the types of events that seem very significant to me in themselves, just as examples, but readers can’t tell what kind of intensity people endured with any of these:
Paraesthesia (tingling or prickling) 4,744
Vaccination site pain 4,263
Pruritus [itchy skin] 3,435

Swollen tongue 655
Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) 619
Vaccination site rash 586
Reminder: the data on this government web page is for Canada only.
There are two separate sections below which show some of the more significant events: “Adverse events of special interest” and “Detailed information on safety signals, other safety updates and deaths.” Jumping to the information on Deaths at the bottom:
Up to and including December 17, 2021, a total of 254 reports with an outcome of death were reported following vaccination.
They proceed to categorize the reported deaths, dismiss and hedge as many as they can.
The general presentation of this page, especially at the top, is biased towards promoting the “vaccine” products and taking the numbers as if they are all legitimate and reflecting tiny percentages of the total doses.
“What you need to know” at the top of the page indicates there have been 6,829 “serious” (however they make that distinction) adverse events reported since Canadians began receiving these COVID shots and 30,900 total adverse events reported. 6,829 seems significant enough to me considering the “underreporting” admitted to.
The next section is Table 1: Adverse Events of Special Interest
Some of these are in the most frequent table also, but many of them are not. I’ve grouped the related ones together as in Table 1:
- Guillain-Barré Syndrome [your body’s immune system attacks your nerves … sensations can quickly spread, eventually paralyzing your whole body] 111
- Thrombocytopenia (low blood platelets) [Platelets (thrombocytes) are colorless blood cells that help blood clot] 70
- Cardiac arrest 39
- Cardiac failure 38
- Myocardial infarction (heart attack) 98
- Myocarditis1/Pericarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle and lining around the heart) 1,516
- Cerebral venous (sinus) thrombosis [“thrombosis occurs when blood clots block veins or arteries”] 16
- Cerebral thrombosis[cerebral is “relating to the brain“] 11
- Cutaneous vasculitis [“inflamed blood vessels in the skin”] 30
- Deep vein thrombosis 248
- Embolism [“obstruction in a blood vessel due to a blood clot or other foreign matter that gets stuck“] 15
- Haemorrhage (bleeding) 54
- Pulmonary embolism [“blockage in one of the pulmonary arteries in your lungs“] 375
- Thrombosis (blood clot) 259
- Thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (blood clot with low platelets) 89
- Acute kidney injury 46
- Glomerulonephritis (kidney inflammation) and nephrotic syndrome (kidney disorder) 11
- Liver injury 30
- Bell’s Palsy/facial paralysis 694
- Cerebrovascular accident (stroke) 179
- Transverse myelitis (inflammation of spinal cord) 40
For me, if 40 people had inflammation of the spinal cord due to an injection that should be enough to cause a scandal and shut the product down.
- Anaphylaxis 705
- COVID-19 170
Multisystem inflammatory syndrome 7
- Fetal growth restriction 5
- Spontaneous abortion 61
- Acute respiratory distress syndrome 5
- Chilblains [“painful inflammation of small blood vessels in your skin”] 19
- Erythema multiforme (immune skin reaction) 35
As mentioned above, the discussion of deaths [254 reports] is reserved for the end of the next section: “Detailed information on safety signals, other safety updates and deaths.”
I notice the footnote for the COVID-19 line in Table 1:
COVID-19 vaccines that are currently authorized in Canada cannot cause an infection because they do not contain the live virus. While they are all highly effective at preventing severe COVID-19 illness and death, no vaccine is 100% effective, and some COVID-19 cases will still occur. For vaccines that have a two-dose regimen, protection begins 14 days after the first dose, and 7 to 14 days after the second dose.
*”cannot cause an infection because …”? – I would question this statement. They can’t contribute to causing an infection despite all of the adverse events listed above?
*”…all highly effective at preventing severe…” – I would question this claim made about these products. Why should the government be promoting products instead of being objective?
*”For vaccines that have a two-dose regimen, protection begins 14 days after …” – this definition has the potential for obscuring the numbers of events counted (as a result of the vaccines or COVID, e.g. deaths) for those considered vaccinated or unvaccinated.
