A 71-year-old Alaska man with a preexisting heart condition died one week after receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination, according to the latest report from the CDC’s VAERS reporting website.

Posted on Feb. 19, the report notes that the man died Jan. 19 of a heart attack “one week to the day” after getting his first shot. The medical write up states that he had no known allergies but had history of heart conditions. The cause of death is listed as a heart attack, and the attending physician was “not aware of any adverse events experienced from the time of vaccination to the date of death.” Due to the timing, however, the write up states that the vaccine “cannot be fully excluded” as having played some part.

The latest report shows that two other Alaskans experienced life-threatening but non-fatal conditions 12 days after receiving Pfizer vaccinations. The first was a 30-year-old woman who was extremely ill, weak and running a fever. The woman was hospitalized twice. According to the report, she said the vaccination was the “only new/out of the ordinary thing that she can remember recently” in regards to her medical history. The other case involved a 70-year-old woman with a preexisting heart condition who experienced a stroke on Jan. 27.

With the latest fatality, Alaska has now reported a total of eight post-COVID vaccination deaths and 137 total adverse reactions to the VAERS website. Nationally, nearly 16,000 adverse reactions with 929 deaths, post vaccination, have been reported to VAERS.

Anyone in the nation – including healthcare workers and others – can report adverse reactions or deaths following vaccinations on the VAERS website. The CDC investigates the raw data and later issues information on whether it believes the deaths were due to COVID or some other underlying condition. To date, the CDC has dismissed the possibility that any post-COVID vaccination deaths have had anything to do with the vaccine. Alaska’s state health officials, who rely exclusively on CDC’s investigations of adverse reaction, have echoed this opinion.

The VAERS website only captures a fraction of death reports for any given vaccine, as the vast majority are never entered into the website.

The CDC automatically requests medical records, autopsy reports and death certificates on all deaths listed in VAERS. Alaska is only contacted if CDC thinks further investigation is needed. These investigation notifications are not made public, however, because they contain details that could identify the deceased.

    And, there it is. They do not know what they are doing. They make these pronouncements like they are facts. They only have opinions. Your opinion is ever bit as valid as theirs.

  • Carol Allums says:

    I don’t see how these deaths could possibly be attributed to the vaccine. However, I don’t know everything. I just wish we would also be given detail on the investigations into them and the disposition.

    • Neocondom1 says:

      Hard to disagree. Nobody knows everything but you are asking the right questions. How could the deaths be possibly attributed to C-19? The human body is so complex, the vast majority of deaths are older people.

      The mystifying part to all of the this is that nobody nationwide got the flu in 2020.

    Has Bill Gates received the Covid-19 vaccine? Has his kids, wife, & other loved ones received the vaccine? Asking for a friend & a bunch of other people.
