There was a huge increase in vaccine side effects in 2021, although with the arcane coding systems hospitals use its impossible to say how many were from the Covid vaccine. From Alex Berenson at alexberenson.substack.com:
At many hospitals, the number of patients reported to have post-vaccine injuries rose fivefold or more after Covid vaccines were introduced in December 2020, medical records databases show.
For example, one database including 100 institutions included more than 8900 reports in 2021, compared to fewer than 2000 in 2019 and 2020. A different system reported an increase from 162 in 2019 to more than 1100 in 2021.
Several people with access to different databases provided the figures, on the condition that they remain anonymous, as the databases are proprietary and confidential. All the databases showed a similar increase, ranging from four-fold to more than 10-fold.
The rise parallels the massive increase in vaccine injuries and deaths reported to VAERS – the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System – in 2021. Over 740,000 VAERS reports were submitted last year, compared to 50,000 in 2020. Of the 2021 reports, 700,000 were Covid related.
Vaccine advocates insist that VAERS reports are unreliable and do not prove causation because anyone can submit a VAERS report. The figures in these databases cannot be similarly dismissed. Access to them is strictly limited – and represents the clinical judgment of the physicians treating patients.
The increase is particularly stunning because American medical records systems won’t accept a newly created code meant for the reporting of Covid-specific vaccine injuries. The problems can only be recorded as non-specific vaccine injuries, using an earlier diagnosis code.
That earlier code, called T50.Z95A, is the one which has shown the huge increases in 2021.
Further, hospitals receive no financial benefit from including the T50.Z95A code in patient records. Adding the code does not increase the reimbursement they receive. Thus, aside from accurately documenting what is happening to their patients, they have no incentive to record vaccine injuries.
