Shock in Germany: Insurance company reports rise in vaccine side effects

According to a response to an official (https://bit.ly/3QxX4IX)
request for information from the German Techniker Krankenkasse
insurer, the number of billed cases of vaccine-related adverse
effects needing medical treatment skyrocketed in 2021 compared
with 2019 and 2020. The request relates to four diagnostic codes:
T.88.0: Infection following immunisation
T.88.1: Other complications after immunisation
U.12.9: Adverse effects after Covid-19 immunisation
Y.59.9: Complications due to vaccines or biological substances
In 2019, the total number of confirmed diagnoses was 13,777. In 2020
it was 15,044. In 2021 the total number was 437,593. This is more
than thirty-fold the average for those four codes in 2019-2020,
a 2,937% increase.
More precisely, it is the T.88.1 - Other complications after
immunization, and U.12.9 - Adverse effects after Covid-19
immunization - that are spiking. The latter code of course has no
data for the prior years, but close to 150 thousand incidences
in 2021.
Approximately 11 million people are insured by the Techniker
Krankenkasse. 473,593 cases of medical treatment resulting from
vaccination thus amounts to around one in every 23 people vaccinated,
assuming all 11 million are vaccinated. The rate for 2019 and 2020
is one in every 760 people.
The vaccination effort against COVID-19 is unprecedented in its scale
and thus a rise in the number of adverse effects is to be expected.
But what should be expected? We can try to correct for the difference
in scale to compare the COVID-19 vaccination effort with vaccination
for other diseases. As the German total numbers are not easy to come
by, we approximate this by using worldwide estimates. In 2017, the
WHO estimates 2.7 billion vaccine doses were administered worldwide.
In 2021, 57.7% of the world's population had received at least one
dose of COVID-19 vaccine, which amounts to about 4.55 billion
people. From this we can conclude the number of persons vaccinated
against COVID-19 last year was about 1.7 times the number otherwise
vaccinated against other diseases. Thus, assuming the number of
people vaccinated against other diseases stayed the same, the number
vaccinated in total against any disease in 2021 was just under three
times the earlier number. Correcting for this difference we get
a tenfold increase in adverse effects needing medical treatment. This
is a rough estimate, but gives us some idea of the actual rate.
Last February, a board member of another German insurance company,
BKK Provita, Andreas Schofbeck, informed the Paul Ehrlich Institute
of a tenfold rise in the incidence rate of adverse effects among the
company's clients, due to the COVID-19 vaccines. Schofbeck was
promptly fired from the company after his disclosure.
The US VAERS database shows a 35-fold increase in reported
vaccine-related deaths in 2021 compared with 2019. In 2021, Iceland
saw a 160-fold (https://bit.ly/3CdQAL4) increase in reports of all
adverse effects from vaccination compared with 2019. In July of this
year, the Icelandic National Health Insurance had received 40
applications for damages resulting (https://bit.ly/3SZ37I4) from
COVID-19 vaccination, approximately one for every 8,000
people vaccinated.
Recent studies of excess mortality and adverse effects indicate the
mRNA vaccines especially provide limited if any benefit. Dr. Martin
Kulldorff, former professor at Harvard Medical School, member of
the Food and Drug Administration's Drug Safety and Risk Management
Advisory Committee and a former member of the Vaccine Safety
Subgroup of the Centers for Disease Control's Advisory Committee
on Immunisation Practices, concluded in an article last July that the
benefits for working age people were unclear and that the elderly
only "may benefit" from being vaccinated.
The new German numbers only add to already rising concerns regarding
the COVID-19 vaccines. Especially with the now prevalent and much
milder Omicron variant, the data indicate that vaccination may
increase infection and hospitalisation rates rather than reducing
them and produces a rise in all-cause mortality. In light of this,
continuing to inject younger people is highly irresponsible, if not
criminal. And now, a few weeks after Danish health authorities banned
the vaccination (https://bit.ly/3K84oc4) of children below the age
of 18, new Thai research indicates as many as one in three teenagers
suffer from heart-related problems (https://bit.ly/3zZiY0R) following
mRNA vaccination.
