Mislav Kolakusic, a Croatian lawyer and politician who has been a Member of the European Parliament for Croatia since 2019 recently called out the President of France, Emmanuel Macron. He did so for taking away the rights and freedoms of French citizens during the pandemic. This took place at a meeting of the European Parliament on January 21, 2022, in Strasburg, France.
Kolakusic brought up that Macron has stated that he is proud there is no death penalty in Europe. Kolakusic then stated that “tens of thousands of citizens have died due to vaccine side effects.” It’s not clear whether he meant EU citizens or just in France alone. He then stated that “mandatory vaccinations represent (the) death penalty and its execution for many citizens.” He references data from the European Health Organization (EMA).

Is Kolakusic correct about COVID vaccine injuries?
Government health authorities claim that serious adverse reactions and deaths from vaccines, including COVID vaccines are extremely rare. But what is considered rare? COVID vaccines alone are responsible for approximately 50 percent of vaccine injuries reported to the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) in the last 30 years.
As of today, 22,193 deaths, 39,150 permanent disabilities, 118,367 hospitalizations and 25,265 life threatening injuries have been reported to VAERS. U.S. federal health regulatory agencies have emphasized that there is no way to prove these injuries are connected to the COVID vaccines in any way. That being said, VAERS has always been used by them as a surveillance system to detect ‘red flags’ with regards to vaccine safety the past, so why is now different?
Over the years VAERS has been quite useful. On July 16, 1999 for example, the CDC recommended that healthcare providers suspend the use of the licensed, RotaShield – a rotavirus vaccine – after only 15 cases of intussusception were reported to VAERS.
The United States also has a Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), it has paid out more than $4 billion in taxpayer money to claimants since its inception, while pharmaceutical companies are completely protected from any liability.
It was created in the 1980s after lawsuits against vaccine companies and health care providers threatened to cause vaccine shortages and reduce U.S. vaccination rates. People injured from COVID vaccines however are not entitled to receive compensation while they are under emergency use.
Furthermore, it’s assumed that a large majority of vaccine injuries remain unreported.
A study published on October 7, 2021 in the Journal Toxicology Reports estimates that underreporting of deaths as a result of the COVID vaccines may have resulted in a number 1000 times less than what the actual number is. A Harvard Pilgrim study published in 2010 estimated that less than 1 percent of vaccine injuries are probably reported at that time. This includes serious adverse reactions.
It’s already known that serious adverse reactions to prescription drugs, for example, are extremely underreported, perhaps up to 95 percent of them as multiple studies have pointed out.
Jessica Rose PhD, who studied Immunology at Memorial University in Newfoundland and Labrador along with statistician Mathew Crawford published a paper in September looking into this specifically for COVID vaccines.
Using the VAERS database and independent rates of anaphylaxis events from a Mass General study, they computed a 41X under-reporting factor for serious adverse events in VAERS, leading to an estimate of over 150,000 excess deaths caused by the vaccine.
“The estimates were validated multiple independent ways” the authors claim. She concluded that at least 150,000 Americans have been killed by the Covid-19 Vaccines. She was subjected to the criticism of “fact checkers.” However, “fact checking” have been losing credibility and have even been called out by organizations like the British Medical Journal (BJM).
Here are a few examples of what a VAERS report looks like.
A death involved a 12-year-old girl (VAERS I.D. 1784945) who died from a respiratory tract hemorrhage 22 days after receiving her first Pfizer product dose. Another recent death is the case of a 16-year-old girl (VAERS I.D. 1694568) who died of pulmonary embolism 9 days after a Pfizer product dose (whether it was the first or second is unknown).
A 15-year-old died six days after receiving his first dose of Pfizer product. The VAERS report (I.D. 1764974) states that the previously healthy teen ‘was in his usual state of good health. Five days after the vaccine, he complained of shoulder pain. He was playing with 2 friends at a community pond, swinging from a rope swing, flipping in the air, and landing in the water feet first. He surfaced, laughed, told his friends “Wow, that hurt!”, then swam towards the shore, underwater as was his usual routine. The friends became worried when he did not reemerge.
His body was retrieved by local authorities more than an hour later.’ The autopsy revealed ‘small foci of myocardial inflammation’, an adverse effect of these COVID products commonly found among children and youth, particularly young men.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration, a regulatory agency of the Australian Government, has recorded approximately 80,000 adverse events linked to COVID-19 inoculations. So far, more than 10,000 people have registered to make a claim. The registration for this compensation program opened up last September. If each claim is approved, as of now the cost of payout would be at least $50 million. The adverse reactions range from mild to serious, including deaths.
There are also people all over social media sharing their story. Are these unreported and unverified incidents? Here’s an example from Australia, and instagram account dedicated to sharing the stories of people who believe they’ve suffered severe COVID vaccine injuries.
Previously confidential documents released via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit revealed that Pfizer was aware of more than 50,000 serious adverse reactions to their inoculations within the first 90 days of their rollout.
By October 15th, 2021, adverse events reported worldwide passed 2,344,240 for COVID vaccines alone in the World Health Organization (WHO) reporting system VigiAccess.
With all of these numbers, using a vaccine injury database like VAERS, for example, has been deemed useless by the mainstream. They claim that that “anti vax conspiracy theorists” are using VAERS to scare and mislead people.
Sure, VAERS is a flawed reporting system, but it’s what the government officially created to monitor vaccine issues and it’s all we have. Why aren’t measures put in place to make the monitoring and reporting of vaccine injuries easier and more accurate? If there are so many limitations with regards to VAERS, why not put some effort into improving the system?
The VAERS system isn’t even designed to determine causality of adverse events. So why isn’t there a system designed to do so? Or at least further investigate?
All this being said, the majority of reports to VAERS do seem to come from health service employees, as they are required to report what they believe to be a vaccine injury to the system.
Why isn’t this issue addressed and focused on? It’s almost as if the FDA and CDC don’t want to make an appropriate vaccine injury monitoring system.
Other factors not included are long term consequences. How do we know vaccine injuries may not occur years after inoculation? There are so many limitations that we have no choice but to refer to what people are experiencing and reporting.
With all of these factors and numbers, how can COVID vaccine mandates be justified? Furthermore, vaccines have failed when it comes to stopping the transmission of the virus. This has not been a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” as politicians have claimed. Throughout this pandemic there have been multiple examples of the most vaccinated regions and countries on earth experiencing large COVID outbreaks.
Vaccines that do not stop transmission, as explained by paper that was published in PLOS BIOLOGY in 2015 titled, “Imperfect Vaccination Can Enhance the Transmission of Highly Virulent Pathogens” by Penn State biologist David Kennedy PhD.
All of these factors continue to be ignored, censored and/or labelled as “false news” by “fact checkers.” There is never a proper discussion about vaccine injuries within the mainstream.
