As we head into 2022, and renewed efforts are being made to get Washington residents and Americans vaccinated against COVID, we have some data on how those vaccines fare vs. other traditional shots.


According to VAERS data (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) nearly twice as many persons have died after receiving COVID vaccines as have all others, dating back to 1990.

VAERS is the reporting system used to track and catalog adverse or negative reactions to vaccines. According to two different sources, the number of persons who've died after receiving a COVID vaccine varies, whether comparing world vs. U.S. data.

The website lists total COVID vaccine deaths as 9,778 in the U.S. while worldwide data shows 21,382.  The National Vaccine Information Center also shows a figure of 21,382 but doesn't list specific U.S. numbers.  These figures are as of 12-31-2021.

Both sites show (worldwide) a total of 1,07,001 adverse reactions to some sort of COVID vaccine, while the VAERS analysis site says 715,857 of those were in the U.S.

According to the VAERS analysis site, here's how COVID vaccines fare vs others combined (from December 2020 through December 31, 2021). All other vaccine data is from 1990 to the present in the U.S.:

Number of Adverse Reactions:    COVID  715,857 -  All other vaccines  754,241

Number of life-threatening events:  COVID  11,066   All other vaccines  9.895

Number of Hospitalizations:           COVID  46,755    All other vaccines 38,770

Number of deaths:                        COVID 9,778        All other vaccines  5,233

 Permanent disabilities following vaccination:   COVID 11,413   All other vaccines 12,787.

The CDC data reports, as of 12-31-2021 at least 489 million doses of COVID vaccines have been administered. That's total doses, NOT the number of fully immunized persons.  Compared to the VAERS data, where there were just under 1.1 million adverse reports, that is a rather small percentage.

However, when you compare the Adverse Events of all other vaccines combined since 1990, it clearly shows by far the most have come from COVID 19.

The VAERS analysis site contains this quote:

"*Note that the total number of deaths associated with the COVID-19 vaccines is more than double the number of deaths associated with all other vaccines combined since the year 1990."

We are attempting to obtain specific data for Washington state, but have not located it yet.
