The watchdog group Judicial Watch has recently uncovered information showing that the head of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Rochelle Walensky, requested details about the death of a 13-year old after Covid-19 vaccination.
The death was one of thousands reported to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System known as VAERS.
Judicial Watch said it obtained the information about Walensky's request through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. In response to the request for public records, the CDC provided 314 pages of emails sent to and from Walensky referencing the terms ‘Antibody Dependent Enhancement,' also known as ADE.
ADE is a phenomenon in which vaccination can make a person more susceptible to serious illness from the disease it was supposed to prevent. Scientists say ADE can occur when antibodies generated during an immune response recognize and bind to a pathogen but don't prevent infection. Instead, the antibodies allow the pathogen to get into cells and replicate, making the immune response worse. Other terms used to describe ADE are "pathological priming" and "disease enhancement."
The email records show that Walensky forwarded an article titled “CDC reportedly probing Michigan teen's death after COID-19 vaccination” to her subordinates, asking, “Any details on this?”
CDC colleagues responded to Walensky, stating the CDC was not actively involved in the death investigation, but that they had contacted the Michigan health department and the pathologist who conducted the child's autopsy. According to emails, Walensky was informed that the initial report was filed in VAERS and that CDC would receive a copy of final autopsy.
Also according to the documents, CDC official Jennifer Layden shared the following with Walensky via email:
- The patient was a male aged 13 years with no notable medical history.
- He was found unresponsive 2 days after vaccination. Aside from a fever, he was in his usual state of health prior to his demise.
- An autopsy has been performed; the results and final report are pending.
- CDC and the state health department are in communication about this case, which remains under investigation.
- The pathologist indicated that there appeared to be bilateral ventricular enlargement and histology consistent with myocarditis, but those were preliminary findings.

Other CDC emails showed that there was data indicating "imbalances in adverse effects" and reactogenicity between placebo and vaccine groups. The emails were shared with Walensky on July 26, entitled "Six Month Safety and Efficacy of the BNT162b2 mRNA COVID-19 Vaccine."
An excerpt from the referenced study is below:
- Reactogenicity events among participants not in the reactogenicity subset are reported as adverse events, resulting in imbalances in adverse events (30% vs 14%), related adverse events (24% vs 6%), and severe adverse events (1.2% vs 0.7%) between BNT162b2 and placebo groups. Decreased appetite, lethargy, asthenia, malaise, night sweats, and hyperhidrosis were new adverse events attributable to BNT162b2 not previously identified in earlier reports.
The study was paid for and conducted by Covid-19 vaccine makers Pfizer and BioNTech.
Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch summarized the findings of the FOIA documents by stating, "The American people have a right to know as much as possible about the safety of the COVID vaccines. The CDC needs to be more transparent about its investigations of COVID vaccine adverse events, including deaths, reported on VAERS.”
