      The recent deaths reported were in Norway were confined to elderly (some terminal) nursing home patients. There is also one death involving a Florida doctor, but it is yet unclear if the COVID vaccine was involved in his death. As with any medication, there will be a very small percentage of those who receive these vaccines, who experience adverse effects, most of which are minor and not life threatening. Vaccination can be considered safe and effective in providing protection against the COVID disease.

      Really. I just so a doctor die of taking the vaccine. That was in December 2020. Then I saw another person die. Those might have been mishaps. But they died. pfizer-BioNTech is the one that doctor took. Apparently he never did had the virus before. So he died. Interesting.

    55 people in the US have died, mostly nursing home residents who were considered “most at-risk” for the virus – now more at-risk for the vaccine. This makes eugenicist Bill Gates very happy. The vaccine is under-tested and full of chemicals which cause anaphylaxis. Ever have a bad reaction to Miralax? Then you are ineligible to take the Covid vaccine because Polyethylene glycol (PEG) frequently causes anaphylactic (allergic) reactions and especially when injected. Avoid. Fauci has admitted that the vaccine does NOT slow the spread of the disease, it supposedly only reduces severity of symptoms if you do catch the disease…unless you’re allergic. Even that does not line up with the fact that in animal testing, those who received the vaccine and were subsequently exposed to the virus itself actually had an overraction (inflammatory) response and most died.
