We need to make sure CDC and FDA are living up to their promise of closely monitoring side effects and adverse reactions. But it does a disservice to highlight individual cases unless they’re really telling us something we didn’t know was possible.”
A health worker in Alaska had a serious allergic reaction after getting Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine on Tuesday and was hospitalized, according to three people familiar with official reports of the person’s health. The person was still in the hospital on Wednesday morning, under observation. In England, the National Health Service had to create “resuscitation facilities” for the vaccine victims. Now fake news outlets like CNN and the New York Times are wondering if all this reporting on adverse reactions is really necessary.
As we have told you multiple times so far, what you are watching is COVID theater, it is all fake, every bit of it, and it is all designed to drive a narrative pushed by the New World Order that life cannot continue until the entire world is vaccinated at least twice. Tomorrow morning, VP Mike Pence will get his COVID-19 vaccine penetration live on television, so you can ‘have confidence’ that this rushed, poorly-tested and ‘approved for emergency use’ COVID vaccine is safe. How ‘safe’ is it? Why don’t you try mine, I won’t be taking it, and you let me know how it goes.
“I’d just be clear that like NO ONE is trying to cover any of this up,”
FROM CNN BUSINESS: As the largest vaccination program in American history gets underway, incidents in which some people have allergic reactions will undoubtedly pop up — and that presents a complicated task for newsrooms. On one hand, an adverse reaction to a new vaccine is newsworthy. But on the other hand, news orgs risk saturating coverage with stories about isolated incidents that might give the public the wrong impression about the safety of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and others that eventually receive emergency use approval.

This tricky balancing act was brought to the forefront on Wednesday when The New York Times broke news that a healthcare worker in Alaska had suffered an allergic reaction to the Pfizer vaccine (a story that CNN and most major news outlets soon matched). A push alert from NYT added, “It’s unclear if the case has broader safety implications.” The push alert specifically raised eyebrows. “Debate the merits of doing this as a push alert,” tweeted Snapchat’s Peter Hamby.
“This is akin to having a breaking news alert if a person admits to voting twice,” Dr. Jonathan Reiner, a professor of medicine and surgery at George Washington University and a CNN medical analyst, told me. “An isolated instance doesn’t equal widespread voting fraud and isolated adverse events shouldn’t erode confidence in these vaccines. Multiple anecdotes do not equal data. We actually have solid safety data for the Pfizer vaccine from the phase 3 efficacy trial and the vaccine appears safe in the group in which it was studied.”
Reiner isn’t the only doctor who is worried about news orgs spending too much time covering adverse reactions. Dr. James Hamblin, a staff writer at The Atlantic, told me he has “extreme concerns” about this. “The concern is always that narratives are set by stories of individual outliers,” Hamblin said. “There’s no headline about the uneventful vaccinations.”
“I think as with so many things, the issue is the pressure for breaking news,” Hamblin explained. “We need to step back and look for patterns in who has reactions and how bad they are. We need to keep a close eye on them. We need to make sure CDC and FDA are living up to their promise of closely monitoring side effects and adverse reactions. But it does a disservice to highlight individual cases unless they’re really telling us something we didn’t know was possible.”
“I’d just be clear that like NO ONE is trying to cover any of this up,” Hamblin added to me. “We need absolute transparency in reporting these events to CDC and FDA, and all those stats should be publicly available. The only question is in how journalists tell this story as it unfolds. And they need to remember that they’re actively shaping public opinion in a moment where it’s extremely malleable.”
Michael Osterholm, an epidemiologist who serves on President-elect Biden’s Covid advisory board, made a similar point to Erin Burnett, stressing that context is key when discussing adverse reactions. “To me this is a small price to pay,” Osterholm said. “I’m willing to get my sore arm, I’m willing to potentially have a reaction, to get protected.” READ MORE
