W Stanach Zjednoczonych od 14 grudnia 2020 r. do 17 maja 2021 r. W tym czasie VAERS otrzymał 4647 zgłoszeń o śmierci osób, które otrzymały szczepionkę COVID-19.
CDC uses the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) to closely monitor reports of death following COVID-19 vaccination.
- FDA requires healthcare providers to report any death after COVID-19 vaccination to VAERS.
- Reports to VAERS of death following vaccination do not necessarily mean the vaccine caused the death.
- CDC follows up on any report of death to request additional information to learn more about what occurred and to determine whether the death was a result of the vaccine or was unrelated.
- CDC, FDA, and other federal agencies will continue to monitor the safety of COVID-19 vaccines.
Over 273 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020, through May 17, 2021. During this time, VAERS received 4,647 reports of death (0.0017%) among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine.
CDC and FDA physicians review each case report of death as soon as notified and CDC requests medical records to further assess reports. A review of available clinical information, including death certificates, autopsy, and medical records has not established a causal link to COVID-19 vaccines. However, recent reports indicate a plausible causal relationship between the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine and a rare and serious adverse event—blood clots with low platelets—which has caused deaths. Get the latest safety information on the J&J/Janssen vaccine. CDC and FDA will continue to investigate reports of adverse events, including deaths, reported to VAERS.
