Status: Not True
UK Yellow Card submissions are not Cause and Effect determining. Much like the VAERS data in the US, it is used to track any deaths after vaccination. If a person hit their head and died after a vaccine, it would go on the Yellow card list. Remember, people die every day after having a cheeseburger but there is no Yellow Burger's List or BAERGRs list.
The UK's Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency(MHRA) concludes from the same Yellow card data:
"Vaccination is the single most effective way to reduce deaths and severe illness from COVID-19. A national immunisation campaign has been underway since early December 2020."
VAERS submissions have deaths such as these recorded:
"She passed away on 12/27/2020 of natural causes per report. Has previously been in & out of hospice care, resided in nursing home for 9+ years, elderly with dementia. Due to proximity of vaccination we felt we should report the death, even though it is not believed to be related."
"patient tested positive for COVID 19. She had a number of chronic, underlying health conditions. The vaccine did not have enough time to prevent COVID 19. There is no evidence that the vaccination caused patient's death. It simply didn't have time to save her life."
"VACCINATION WAS RECEVIED THE MORNING OF 1/5/2021- IN THE EVENING OF THAT DAY RESIDENT SUSTAINED A FALL AND WAS TRASNPORTED TO FACILITY FOR TREATMENT. IT IS NOT UNUSUAL THAT RESIDENT WAS SELF TRANSFERRING AND HAS A HISTORY OF FALLS."
"Patient was vaccinated and about a week later she tested positive for COVID-19. She had underlying thyroid and diabetes disease. She died as a result of COVID-19 and her underlying health conditions and not as a result of the vaccine."
* Thanks to Dr. Anthony Cox for capturing these posted public claims.
As is evidenced, there was no cause and effect established; yet, it was reported anyway.
The Yellow Card System
Unlike the VAERS system where medical professionals report the deaths and potential side effects, with the Yellow Card system, anyone can submit a claim. This means it is even less reliable. The system is set up to be an early warning system, but much like any public submission system, it is rife with abuse and inaccuracy; especially in light of so much fear, doubt, and disinformation already out there about the Covid-19 vaccines. Again, this system has not determined cause and effect. The yellow card site itself says:
Vaccines are the most effective way to prevent infectious diseases and they save millions of lives worldwide. Like all medicines, vaccines can cause side effects. Most of these are mild and short-term, and not everyone gets them.
If the Yellow card site and VAERS reporting systems are supposed to be a deterrent to getting the Covid-19 vaccine, they both officially think it is best to get vaccinated.
