ER Editor: We have been wondering about this, too. Why is the AstraZeneca vaccine being targeted for its bad side effects but not the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines? They are all of the mRNA gene-changing variety. Journalist Cesare Sacchetti (Twitter & Telegram):
See this excellent piece on the stinging letter a group of top doctors and researchers sent to Ursula von der Leyen and Charles Michel over the safety of these vaccines. They made the letter public because they got no response:
COVID-19 vaccine rollout suspended in European countries after blood clots, deaths
Deaths after receiving the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine were reported in Austria, Sicily, Italy, Denmark, and the UK.
Italy has suspended the use of a different batch of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, ABV 2856, after 43-year-old naval officer Stefano Paternò had a fatal heart attack 24 hours after receiving a dose of it this week in Sicily. According to the Corriere della Sera, Paternò was in good health before his inoculation, and then afterward suffered a fever, followed by convulsions. There are also reports that a second Italian, a 50-year-old policeman named Davide Villa, also died after receiving the vaccine in Sicily. Villa developed deep vein thrombosis after his inoculation and succumbed 12 days later.
Denmark, Iceland, and Norway have suspended using any batch of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine after the death of a Danish woman with blood clots. The 60-year-old woman died shortly after receiving the vaccine.
According to the Financial Times, residents of Denmark who have been inoculated with the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine in the past two weeks will be contacted by health authorities. They will be instructed in the signs of blood clots and encouraged to “contact their doctors if they suffer any new or surprising symptoms.”
According to the BBC, the medical regulator for the European Union has stated that there is no proof that the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine causes blood clots and that its benefits still “outweigh its risks.”
“There is currently no indication that vaccination has caused these conditions, which are not listed as side effects with this vaccine,” the European Medicines Agency (EMA) declared.
“The vaccine’s benefits continue to outweigh its risks and the vaccine can continue to be administered while investigation of cases of thromboembolic events is ongoing.”
The EMA also said the number of incidents of blood clots in vaccinated people is no higher than in the general population.
The British government’s response to the total suspension of the Oxford/AstraZenica vaccine by its northern neighbors was to tell UK residents to continue taking it.
“This is a precautionary measure by the Danish, Norwegian and Icelandic authorities,” the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said today.
“It has not been confirmed that the report of a blood clot was caused by the AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine. People should still go and get their COVID-19 vaccine when asked to do so.”
Dr. Phil Bryan, the MHRA Safety Lead, stated that vaccine safety is of “paramount importance” and continually monitored.
“Blood clots can occur naturally and are not uncommon,” Bryan added.
“More than 11 million doses of the COVID-19 AstraZeneca vaccine have now been administered across the UK.”
Bryan also said that the reports of blood clots that have been received thus far “are not greater than the number that would have occurred naturally in the vaccinated population.”
“The safety of the public will always come first. We are keeping this issue under close review, but available evidence does not confirm that the vaccine is the cause,” he added.
According to Britain’s most recent “Yellow Card” report on COVID-19 vaccine side effects, published March 9, there have been 134 deaths, nine “sudden deaths,” and four miscarriages after the use of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine in Britain.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
