Who’s there? 

Vaccine-Injury Anecdotes!

Guess there’s nobody at the door!

 

Q. How many anecdotes does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A. You can never have enough.

 

Anecdotes are the neutrinos of the vaccine-injury world.  No matter how many of them there are, they will always go unnoticed.

That was a great article.

 

Several months ago, numerous posters asked where the "only 10% of adverse reactions are reported" stat cam from - and this article does give something of an answer:

 

"Under-reporting is understood to be a limitation of a passive reporting system like VAERS. In light of the fact that a vaccine manufacturer reported a 2% rate and that David Kessler, former FDA head, reported that one study found that only 1% of evenserious adverse events were reported to the agency,  proposing a reporting rate of 10% might be considered “conservative”, i.e., a low-ball estimate.  Under such a “conservative” scenario, 3,825,400 possible adverse vaccine-associated reactions could be projected.  That’s a lot of nothing."

Fortunately vaers is not the only source for estimates on frequency of adverse events.

It's a very sad state of affairs when all we have are a few severely flawed sources for estimating frequency of adverse reactions to vaccines--VAERS, industry studies that were fixed to downplay adverse reactions, and post-marketing surveillance data that has likewise been fixed.  In addition, the vaccine industry has put a lot of time and money into training doctors to baasically FAIL to recognize and therefore report serious vaccine reactions.
