Re: Urgent warning re Covid-19 vaccine-related deaths in the elderly and Care Homes
In our Open Letter of 23 November 2020, addressed to the MHRA, JCVI and Matt Hancocki, we outlined our concerns of potential public health risks from a mass roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccines because of only limited short-term safety data and no long-term safety data.
In this letter we draw to your attention the mounting evidence that the public health risks we identified may be materialising.
We now call for an immediate and urgent audit of deaths that have occurred since the beginning of the Covid-19 vaccine rollout, to ascertain if Covid-19 vaccines (in general or any one brand in particular) are leading to an increased number of deaths (Covid-19 and non-Covid-19 related), Covid-19 cases or increased risk of death in certain age groups or cohorts.
Among our concerns in our previous Open Letter, we raised the potential issues of:
- Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE) induced by the vaccines causing more severe Covid-19, with increased hospitalisations and deaths in the weeks or months after vaccinations.
- The lack of safety data on elderly people with multiple comorbidities. This cohort was under represented and a statistically insignificant group in the clinical vaccine trials . We postulated that there may be increased vaccine side-effects in this group, which would only become apparent when many thousands of them had received vaccinations.
- The absence of any safety data regarding those who have already had Covid-19, and the possibility that prior immunity may lead to increased side-effects from the Covid-19 vaccines.
CURRENT CONCERNS AND CONTEXT
Our particular concern is the impact of Covid-19 vaccines on the very elderly and those in care homes. ONS data shows that weekly care home deaths tripled in the two weeks between 8th and 22nd January 2021ii, at a time when there was a massive increase in the rate of vaccinations of care home residents iii (Fig 1 and Fig 2).
