Reports of serious side effects from the various COVID-19 vaccines, while treated dismissively (or simply ignored) by the Presstitutes, Drug Lords, and governments promoting “Vaccines for All, Forever!”, are hardly new. Trends Journal coverage includes, for example:
- “COVID VACCINE: ‘SIGNIFICANT SAFETY CONCERNS'” (15 Dec 2020)
- “ASTRAZENECA VACCINE TIED TO HIGHER RISK OF BLEEDING PROBLEMS” (15 Jun 2021)
- “STATS, SIDE EFFECTS & DEATHS” (2 Feb 2021)
- “YET ANOTHER REASON FOR VACCINE HESITANCY” (29 Jun 2021)
Now, as reported on 26 October by the Financial Times, an English study said to be the most comprehensive review yet of side effects of the Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines ties those shots to increased occurrence of seven different neurological complications, among them hemorrhagic stroke, encephalitis and meningitis (inflammations of, respectively, the brain and the membranes surrounding it) and myelitis (spinal cord inflammation); all can occur concurrently.
TRENDPOST: These complications were rare; only 60 more people out of 10 million presented with hemorrhagic stroke than would have absent the vaccine (although the risk was greater for females); nevertheless, that’s small comfort to those 60 people, who were no doubt assured the vaccines were “safe and effective” and any side effects would be minor and statistically insignificant.
Another serious neurological complication was an increased occurrence of Guillain-Barré Syndrome, in which the body’s immune system attacks the nervous system. The study found that an extra 38 persons out of 10 million presented with GBS after receiving the AstraZeneca shot.
TRENDPOST: Guillain-Barré [pronounced ghee-YON bah-RAY] Syndrome is described in the FT article as “causing pain and weakness in the limbs and is usually temporary.” That’s not quite so. It can cause degrees of paralysis, up to and including inability to breathe; it’s fatal in about 1 percent of cases.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced an update to the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine label regarding an observed increased risk of Guillain-Barré syndrome following vaccination.
Furthermore, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Slovenia and other nations have either banned and/or restricted the use of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine because the risk of unusual blood clots outweighs the benefits of the inoculation.
It often takes a year for patients to recover, sometimes with lingering effects. It is no laughing matter; in fact, the late Joseph Heller (known for writing “Catch-22”) had GBS and, with his friend “Speed” Vogel, wrote a book about it; that book is titled “No Laughing Matter.” Recovery does not confer immunity; while recurrences are extremely rare, GBS survivors are routinely advised to avoid vaccines. See “TV STATION SOLICITS UN-VAXXED HORROR STORIES, GETS DELUGE OF VAXXED HORROR STORIES INSTEAD: MEDIA IGNORES THE FINDINGS” (21 Sep 2021).
In fairness, it should be noted that infection with the COVID-19 virus carries increased risk of these same conditions, often at statistically greater risk than from the vaccines. That would seem to argue for being vaxxed, even for persons terrified of such conditions—except that all the “breakthrough” infections that have occurred prove that the vaccines cannot be counted on to prevent infection; see “BREAKTHROUGHS BEGET RISK REASSESSMENT” (24 Aug 2021).
TREND FORECAST: Those who view these statistics as perfectly good reasons to decline being vaxxed will continue to be vilified as “selfish” and will continue to be urged, coerced and threatened to take the shots, “if not for yourself, then for the safety and protection of those around you (ignoring the drug dealers claim that 96 percent of those who are vaxxed were sold as being safe).
However, as we have detailed, there will be strong anti-vax, anti-establishment movements sweeping the globe. There will be a push to relax the “No Jab, No Freedom” government imposed mandates as businesses seek to fill worker shortages and they continue to lose money because a sizable percentage of the population lack vax passports.
