Urgent Preliminary Report of Yellow Card Data Up to 26th May 2021


Dr Tess Lawrie, Director, Evidence-based Medicine Consultancy Ltd and EbMC Squared CiC, writes to the UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency after evaluating the Yellow Card data. 

The Covid-19 vaccines were rolled out in the UK on the 8th of December 2020. As of the 6th May 2021 nearly 39 million people have received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, and 24 million both doses. Sufficient data have now accumulated to get a good overview of adverse drug reactions (ADRs). I would, therefore, like to draw your attention to the high number of covid-19 vaccine-attributed deaths and ADRs that have been reported via the Yellow Card system between the 4th January 2021 and the 26th May 2021. In total, 1,253 deaths and 888,196 ADRs (256,224 individual reports) were reported during this period ...

This report is not comprehensive, and analysis of Yellow Card data is ongoing. The process of defining the search terms was iterative and we trust that it provides a basis for discussion among clinicians and scientists. We have not compared the frequencies of ADRs between different vaccines; however, our impression is that ADRs were not limited to any particular vaccine brand (AstraZenenca, Pfizer and Moderna) or type (mRNA and DNA) currently used in the UK. UK ADR data mirror data reported on the World Health Organization's pharmacovigilance database  (www.Vigiaccess.org). On the latter, most reported ADRs to date (941,774 ADRs and 5,474 deaths) have occurred among individuals in the 18 to 44 years and 45 to 64 years of age categories (38% and 35%, respectively); the vast majority (72%) of reported ADRs have occurred among women. Unfortunately, we have been unable to examine the UK Yellow Card data according to age and gender due to lack of data availability. 

We are aware of the limitations of pharmacovigilance data and understand that information on reported Adverse Drug Reactions should not be interpreted as meaning that the medicine in question generally causes the observed effect or is unsafe to use. We are sharing this preliminary report due to the urgent need to communicate information that should lead to cessation of the vaccination roll out while a full investigation is conducted. According to the recent paper by Seneff and Nigh (1), potential acute and long-term pathologies include: 

• Pathogenic priming, multisystem inflammatory disease and autoimmunity 

• Allergic reactions and anaphylaxis • Antibody dependent enhancement 

• Activation of latent viral infections 

• Neurodegeneration and prion diseases 

• Emergence of novel variants of SARSCoV2 

• Integration of the spike protein gene into the human DNA

As pharmacovigilance data are known to be substantially under-reported, we recommend that the MHRA urgently publicises these ADR data and assists people with their ADR reporting, to facilitate full elucidation and clarification of the extent of the problem. 

The MHRA now has more than enough evidence on the Yellow Card system to declare the COVID-19 vaccines unsafe for use in humans. Preparation should be made to scale up humanitarian efforts to assist those harmed by the COVID-19 vaccines and to anticipate and ameliorate medium to longer term effects. As the mechanism for harms from the vaccines appears to be similar to COVID-19 itself, this includes engaging with numerous international doctors and scientists with expertise in successfully treating COVID-19. 

There are at least 3 urgent questions that need to be answered by the MHRA: 

1  How many people have died within 28 days of vaccination? 

2  How many people have been hospitalised within 28 days of vaccination? 

3 How many people have been disabled by the vaccination? 

EbMC Squared CiC remains at your service to assist with further analysis. We kindly request full access to the Yellow Card database with immediate effect to enable a comprehensive, independent and accurate evaluation of the Yellow Card data, which will be undertaken in collaboration with clinical experts.
