Note: Adverse events reported after vaccination are not necessarily related to vaccination; the illnesses could be coincidental. For a summary of adverse events associated with Covid-19 vaccines, click the link in the blue box below entitled "Covid-19 Vaccine Concerns Summary."
There are 18 deaths reported after Covid-19 vaccine among children aged 12-17.
That's according to the most recent data in the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Database from a search conducted by Children's Health Defense.
One of the most recent deaths reported is that of a 15-year old boy, who previously had Covid-19 but was vaccinated, anyway. He died four days after getting his second Pfizer shot and collapsing on a soccer field.
Another recent death is that of a 13-year old girl who died after suffering a heart condition after her first dose of Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine.
There were 432 reports of myocarditis and pericarditis among 12-to-17 year olds. Almost all of them were after Pfizer's vaccine. There were also 86 cases of blot clotting disorders in children, all of them after Pfizer's vaccine.

Barry Burton says
Out of all of the numbers given, not a single mention of total vaccinations given to the groups in question, making the given information meaningless. On purpose?
Does it matter? Are any deaths of children, due to an optional (i.e., not naturally infected) procedure acceptable?
How many children do we sacrifice? What's an acceptable number? How many people, in whole, would you allow as acceptable sacrifices?
For a situation that is rarely dangerous to children (if naturally infected), it seems pro-covid vax people find people unnecessarily dying, acceptable. Any death due to these "vaccines" was preventable.
Libby Parker says
what about the lil guy who had COVID and had to have his arms and legs amputated. He had only 25% to live. His mom just let him go instead of suffering. I don't want to risk my child leaving here with COVID. Even without the med you can have a heart problem if you become infected.
a few people who swim in the ocean will get bit by a shark every year...do you swim with your kids in the ocean? I'll bet more people get bit by sharks than have gotten this supposedly covid related condition. And I feel very sadly sure that more children will die from these jabs than from this MIS-C. (When I googled it, the last article on it was from February 2021...I'm very doubtful they have continued to see a relationship or they would be feeding the news cycle with it...part of the propaganda covid fear mongering. The fact remains that kids have a 99.998% chance of surviving covid. Do you really think giving them the jab is going to fix that .002%. Good golly, Miss Molly the fear whores are winning.
Yes that’s missing but when you take these numbers in all categories and map them to the true number of Covid deaths in healthy people the vaccines lose by a lot.
Sorry but I’m tired of reading stories about the 85 year old guy dying from Covid who had heart and other issues. It was his time.
John Citoyen says
Since when are you the judge of whether an 85 year old's time was up?
Vaccine doesn't even work though. You're risking your life for nothing. All the new strains avoid vaccine. 70% of COVID illnesses are from the vaccinated. Nothing has changed except you risked your life on an experimental vaccine.
Are you playing percentages? Is a certain percentage of adverse events and death fine, even if it's in the thousands?
I don't care about total vaccinations. I care about the individuals harmed by the "vaccines", even if they only amounted to .00001%. Every life has value, and doesn't deserve to be experimented on.
I'm sure many are all in favor of "if it saves even one life" when it comes to advocating for the shot...
Evette Adriana says
Not to mention, all the adverse events that were never reported.
Grorgann eoods says
Right? About two hundred kids under 11 have died from Covid from the beginning of the pandemic !! Why in the world would I let my five yo take any risk from this vaccine! I bet most of those two hundred kids were unhealthy. I make health decisions for my kid in relation to what is best for him! It’s an individual choice - no one should take the vaccine for the good of the community; especially now that we see they are not working so great; If he was injured by the vaccine, he might live with those consequences for decades! If he gets Covid - he will most likely
be kinda sick and THEN have natural immunity! This country has lost their collective minds!
There's only been 16 deaths in people under 20 with covid in canads. Nit one of them was healthy. So no, the number of doses doesn't matter. Even one healthy that would not have died from covid is too many.
It's not meaningless, the standard to pull a vaccine has always been 25 deaths or 25 serious events. If you feel good risking your healthy child's immune and long term health to quell your fears, it's a clear sign of hynosis. This is lunacy. The kids have a greater chance at adverse events than they do being hospitalized for covid.
The ratio could be 1 child out of 1,000 children, that would be enough for me to say absolutely not. Many mothers spend our entire parental lives protecting our children and keeping them out of harms way. And the moment that a virus comes along with a 99.7 survival rate, fear attacks and everyone rushes to an experimental drug and very few stop to ask questions first. I am absolutely opposed to giving these things to my children. The FDA approved Comirnaty is not even available but supposedly it is identical to Pfizer. However, Pfizer is only authorized (not approved) under an EUA. You cannot have an FDA approval AND an EUA for the same vaccine. This alone leaves the liability of adverse reaction or death on the parents alone. It takes the responsibility of the “safety and efficacy” off of the manufacturer and everyone else involved. If a vaccine is approved by the FDA then there should be an insert with all of the vaccines information on it. Where is this insert? It doesn’t exist. At least it has not been released to the public. Then you look at the VAERS website and the numbers are piling up. The vaccines of the past would have been shut down at 1/10 of those numbers, maybe even less. In just a very short time that these vaccines have been given to children and already the numbers are astonishing. The most incredibly horrific part of doing this research of the adverse reactions on the VAERS website was when I read the descriptions of the adverse reactions those children had. And my heart was pounding with every word that I read of what these children suffered at the hands of a vaccine meant to protect them from a virus with a 99.7% survival rate. And I closed my eyes and imagined taking my children to get those vaccines, sitting my kids down and allowing someone to inject my children with this after all that I know and I could feel my own heart ripping out of my chest. I am a mother who does everything I can to protect my children. We all had Covid-19 in may of 2020. It has been well over a year now. These vaccines may be considered safe and effective by the people pushing them down our throats. Or the people who are making tons of money from all of this. But I will not subject my children to be test subjects for a vaccine that doesn’t protect or provide immunity,. To each their own!
Well said Mama!! I wanted to get my 13 yr old daughter vaccinated but was so leary of it, I just felt a gut instinct not too. After reading your post I am just reading exactly the reason I won't. Thank you for your post, and caring so much for your own kids but also making me notice exactly was is right and fact.
You really need to take VAERS reporting system with a grain of salt. VAERS is self reporting and misused by anti-vaxxers to try and terrify the public with misinformation. The VAERS system is an unverified reporting system that does not determine if a vaccine caused the events that are reported. Anyone who received a vaccine can submit a report. And, these reports themselves are not vetted. VAERS has a disclaimer warning, submissions “may include incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental and unverified information.”
Get you daughter vaccinated. Vaccines decrease the risk of COVID-19 and long covid, they don't make you immortal and they don't cause death. Just because somebody reports death doesn’t mean that the vaccine caused the death. Correlation does NOT equal causation. The vast majority of events reported for COVID-19 vaccines haven’t been serious. The anti-vaxxers like to cherry pick the information and don't know have the medical knowledge in how to accurately read it.
Critical Thinker says
Screw your advice. You sound like someone who doesn't have a child.
Kay Dixon says
The issue is not the injection, it's the choice. This "mandate" is not a law, but is severe government overreach. It is morally and ethically bankrupt. Those who agree with the injection should absolutely stand by the choice and reject the mandate.
Cmdr. Data says
That is untrue. Vaers is used by health professionals and doctors and their reports are followed up and verified. On the contrary, Covid death counts by the CDC are inflated enormously since 96% of correlation is considered as causation. These inflated numbers are used by pro-vaccine psychos to terrify the public into accepting dangerous vaccines. It doesn't actually take medical knowledge to interpret statistical data. Without VAERS you have no data to speak of. You can not claim these vaccines are not killing children. There is no counterpart to VAERS. Vaccination status of the deceased is not recorded. Whatever you believe, it is hearsay and worthless.
It is also a federal offense to misreport on VAERS. In addition to that adverse reactions are followed up on.
Joseph Jeremiah Coon says
When you are forced to pay for a vaccine by a government who takes your money through taxes; gives BigPharma immunity from litigation; AND forces you take a vaccine that has NEVER been administered before (mRNA), a certain amount of skepticism is to be expected. I don’t buy the latest version of consumer electronics as soon as they come out so I can see how it goes by early adopters. Why would I change my philosophy about an experimental vaccine with a tainted trial?
You do know that they informed the placebo group of their status to give them an option to take the vaccine, right? NOW we have no control group to determine any long term effects of an EXPERIMENTAL vaccine based on mRNA rather than portions of an actual virus. You have LIVE mRNA strands going into your cells and hijacking your ribosomes.
I am not an anti-vaxxer. And, I will be reporting my adverse event in VAERS. Don't minimize every single report in VAERS. I had a migraine for 3 weeks after the Vax, which required two trips to ER because I thought I was having an aneurysm. I was unable to work for 3 weeks. My adverse event was pretty terrifying and painful so I will be reporting it!
real simple question.... why would you put a disease into your body when you DONT NEED IT. IF THAT IS YOUR REASONING THEN YOU BETTER START CHEMO, BECAUSE YOU HAVE A FOURTY TWO PERCENT CHANCE OF GETTING CANCER.....AMY!!!
Mary Mason says
Oh, okay, I see. If the numbers jabbed were high then it would be okay that these people suffered severe adverse reactions or death. You're a numbskull.
Deciding to get a vaccine is a risk/benefit analysis, So yes, the “numbers jabbed “ are very important in making an assessment. This allows you to weigh the risk of the disease against the risk of the vaccine. Both choices have an associated risk. In your own words, you’re a numbskull for not grasping this concept.
I totally agree. I'm trying to run this risk/benefit analysis right now before making a decision on vaccinating my kids, and would like to see the totals listed based on
Michelle Trout says
Thank you. Couldn’t have said it better myself!
Greg t says
Agree the total count must be givin for information to be considered. Where did this doctor get her schooling? Like the statement of " 432 reports of myocarditis and pericarditis among 12-to-17 year olds" is this having a number of 500 total vaccines? Or 1,000,000 vaccines. Yes i agree any death is horrible. Would you get it if the total number was only 500?
Why does that matter in this case? Risk to children of death from Covid is less than 1%. Why are we giving them an immunization that is causing deaths and long-term health effects? Bizarro world. Thank you for this website!!
More deaths by Covid than vaccine (over 700 in the 0-17 age group) ... plus the severe illness and long term effects.
I find interesting in this story and your other story https://sharylattkisson.com/2021/08/read-cdc-on-covid-19-vaccine-safety-in-kids/ is that all of these VEARSs reports and the CDC studies do not mention that over 4000 of the events have an unknown age, suggesting there is a possibility of more events not categorized by age range. That is important to factor in as well as the fact not all adverse affects are reported and I suspect deaths that are reported to the system (the closer to the time of vaccination the more likely to be reported this less the further from time of vaccination). As far as total vaccinations by adolescents, see the story referenced above which links to the CDCs study which put it a 8.9 mil Dec 4th 2020 - July 16th 2021 ages 12-17. To then take to the total population of adolescents and Covid outcomes you can get a closer idea of risk factors (not perfect due to VEARs data not capturing all events). Keep in mind, that vaccination adds additional risk while not totally mitigating Covid risk which has to be accounted for and doesn't seemed to be discussed much.
Alexandra Gecin says
Most of the reported cases of myocarditis and pericarditis in young people have been from the Pfizer shot yet now the government is investigating links of these inflammations from the Moderna shot. Meanwhile, Pfizer continues to say there is no link.
Yet the Pfizer jab just got FDA approval Do you trust the FDA?????
KENNETH BENDELL says
The FDA gets most of its operating costs from the companies it is supposed to regulate...
Yet the Pfizer jab just got FDA approval Do you trust the FDA????? The figures were given as percentages all shots of adverse reactions rather than percentages of adverse reactions by type of shot so the shots might be compared. it seems to me that the mRNA clot shot is much riskier as well as less effective.
Luke John says
All this for children who have as close to zero risk as possible in such cases.
Per the CDC - a 0.00015% chance of hospitalization.
A way smaller chance of serious complications and an EVEN LOWER chance of death.
All this for children who have as close to zero risk as possible in such cases.
And it is now thought that vaccinated kids are still capable of transmitting the virus to the elderly
So I have to ask, "What the hell is the point?"
De population is the point.
One really has to ask the question, if the vaccine is okay to use then why do these vaccine manufactures have a no risk policy, meaning they are not responsible for any ill effects of their products. This only happens in this industry, any other industry that tried to push a product that caused adverse reaction would be sued into bankruptcy. 7.5 billion lab rats and they are laughing all the way to the bank.
Let's begin with what we know ...
1. SARS-CoV-2 is a zoonostic disease and the so-called "vaccination" is really nothing more than a "therapeutic," as it doesn't not eradicate the disease. It's sole purpose is to lesson the severity of the symptoms, should you become exposed.
2. We know from numerous studies that both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated carry the same viral load, so a vaccinated person can spread the disease just as easily and the unvaccinated.
3. Mandates ignore all of those infected with Covid-19 prior to any shot becoming available. A recent study found that an estimated ONE-THIRD of the U.S. population was likely infected. Combine this with the percentage of the population that has received the shot and we near 100 percent. (See: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-021-03914-4)
4. A total of 81 studies (to date) have found not a single benefit for those previously infected to be vaccinated.
5. The narrative that "vaccinations are superior to natural immunity" is an outright falsehood. In 2008, a study of survivors of the 1918 Spanish flu epidemic found that "100% of the subjects had serum-neutralizing activity against the 1918 virus and 94% showed serologic reactivity to the 1918 hemagglutinin.." (See: https://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2008/08/researchers-find-long-lived-immunity-1918-pandemic-virus)
6. Child morbidity among children is extremely rare. According to CDC data (ending October, 2021), 96 children have died from SARS-CoV-2 or a death rate of 0.00012% of all Covid-19 deaths. This is in spite of an estimated 1.9 million infections and as in the "adult vaccination," these children had at least ONE underlying condition (obesity, chronic metabolic disease, feeding tube dependence, cardiovascular disease, neurologic disorders, chronic lung disease, blood disorders, immunosuppressed conditions, etc.)
If we already know that the vaccine does not prevent infection, one has to ask why there's such an
enormous push to vaccinate them, when the risk clearly outweighs the reward.
Over 700 children age 0-17 have died. Not sure where you got your 96 number? Thousands more have been hospitalized and have long term effects. Far more than have been affected by the vaccine. And the vaccine is not a 100% guarantee against infection but it does prevent infection in most people and lessen symptoms in many more. My friend is an ICU nurse, ALL of her intubated and sedated patients are unvaxxed. Some are young with no underlying conditions. She said you wouldn't wish it on anyone. I wouldn't say the risk outweighs the reward.
david reyna says
You and your ILK are claim to be unbiased and ethical and yet you use VAERS data prove your point, but the data states on its site that - the report may contain information that is incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental or unverifiable. Why would you use and promote as factual anything from this database.
It is only a database that anyone can provide data to and not to be used for scientific conjecture.
But proves what I always believed , you can always find what you want to believe and if it fits your agenda - you use it. Your true colors exposed and add nothing constructive to the legitimate conversations on this topic.
Don't see much mention of the fact that vaccines reduce transmission for society as a whole, only hair-splitting about whether it is more dangerous for kids to get covid or to get the covid vaccine. That is important, but it is not the only point. Cutting transmission protects from the continued circulation of the virus, of it reaching unvaccinated people, whether adults or children, and other vulnerable people, as well as helping to return to some sense of normalcy. A lot of the views here are extremely atomistic at best, and simply paranoid at worst.
Art II says
Your “fact” that vaccines reduce transmission for society as a whole is a conclusion and a poor one at that as it is not supported by any reliable data. The risk/reward data for vaccinating children is clear. Children 18 and younger are hundreds of times more likely to suffer severe adverse effects from the vaccine than die from Covid. What you reference as “hai-splitting” makes me question how you perceive the size of a hair. Your statement that begins with “Cutting transmission....” again false because it assumes that vaccinated individuals do not spread COVID-19. The data here is again clear, as stated in earlier posts- vaccinated people can both become infected and transmit the virus equally as the unvaccinated. In addition this is a virus with animal reservoirs- Covid like the flu will not be going away.. There will be a new normal, nothing like the one you think we’ll get back to though. Referring to people’s views as “atomistic at best” when they refer to a rapidly expanding body of evidence from a growing number of reliable sources/ studies indicates a gross misunderstanding at best and an egregious misuse at worst.
There was manipulation of data from the outset. Listen to Dr Ezike explain the numbers
And then there's the PCR test guaranteed to give false positives. Fauci even said so!
You fools. Turn off the TV
