And just like that, a safe and effective narrative crumbles. An inaccurate message global health officials have worked feverishly for three years to sustain in the face of continued evidence to the contrary was just officially destroyed in minutes by German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach during a live interview with the public news show Heute Journal.

Talking to the news host, Lauterbach stated: 

“According to the latest research data, severe vaccine injury is very rare. The incidence is less than 1 in 10,000. 

Lauterbach broke the golden rule of vaccine messaging – never mention the injuries the vaccine will cause. Always pivot to the positive. Never mention the negatives. 

His pivot was a far cry from his former stance on the Covid shot as evidenced by at tweet from 2021 in which he stated:

“And it is also about why a minority of society does not want a vaccination without side effects, even though it is free and can save their lives and that of many others. That’s why I’m pessimistic about voluntary sacrifices for climate protection”

Lauterbach was nebulous about exactly what ‘latest reproach data’ he was quoting. We already know that a reanalysis of the placebo-controlled, phase III randomized clinical trials of Pfizer and Moderna mRNA COVID-19 vaccines in adults found an excess risk of serious adverse events of special interest of 12.5 per 10,000 vaccinated in both Pfizer and Moderna’s mRNA COVID shots. 

The study concluded that the “excess risk of serious adverse events found in our study points to the need for formal harm-benefit analyses.” In other words, despite health officials repeating the line ‘the benefits outweigh the risks,’ it’s a lie…they really don’t know. 

A new systemic review of the serious harms of the COVID-19 vaccines looked at included 18 systematic reviews, 14 randomized trials, and 34 other studies with a control group. 

The study concluded that despite health authorities recommending a population-wide, one-size-fits-all vaccination, and booster doses, they do not consider that the balance between benefits and harms becomes negative in low-risk groups such as children and people who have already recovered from COVID-19 infection.

Again, the benefits do not outweigh the risks. 

In 2022, the large German insurance company BKK showed the world a glimpse of something incredibly terrifying. Looking at its internal data and running ICD codes for insured individuals seeking medical treatment because of the COVID shot, a BKK board member wrote the following to the German government and its lead health agency the Paul Ehrlich Institute:

“…216,695 treated cases of vaccination side effects after corona vaccination from this

sample run out.”

The internal investigation was done on 10,937,716 BKK-insured members.

The letter went on to state: 

“If these figures are applied to the year as a whole and to the population extrapolated to Germany, there are probably 2.5-3 million people in Germany [that have] been under medical treatment because of vaccination side effects after corona vaccination.”

It continued, “…in terms of the number of vaccinated people in Germany, this means that around 4-5% of vaccinated people were in medical treatment because of vaccination side effects.

For the first time, the public had a figure, 4% to 5%, in which they could grasp. 

We now can begin to triangulate the reality of vaccine harms using real-world data outside the often incomplete scientific research to date. 

Before the Covid vaccine rollout in America, the CDC created v-safe, a smartphone-based program, to collect health assessments after Covid-19 vaccination.  Approximately 10 million people signed up and submitted health reports after Covid-19 vaccination.

After suing the CDC twice, the Informed Consent Action Network’s legal team was granted a  court order requiring the release of the data. Over 144 million health entries obtained by ICAN are now in a searchable dashboard adding the next piece of the Covid shot injury puzzle. 

From a total of 10,10,273 individual users’ data, we see that 751,947 sought medical care after their Covid shot. Telehealth, urgent care, an emergency room visit, or a hospitalization stay. All, like the German insurance data, would generate an ICD code for medical treatment because of the COVID shot – in a perfect world where vaccine injuries were known and medical staff knew what to look for. But that’s not the reality we live in currently.   

A quick math equation [751,947 out of 10,10,273] shows that around 7.4% of people sought medical care after their Covid shot within the V-Safe data. So now we have a range using German and US data: 4 to 7.4% of people receiving a Covid shot need to seek medical care for some type of harm caused by that very shot. 

Another piece of the puzzle was added using the UK government’s own data presented to their Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization in January of 2023. They looked at the number needed to vaccinate (NNV) in order to prevent hospitalization and severe hospitalization. In other words, how many people need to take the COVID shot in order to keep one person out of the hospital from COVID.

Looking at the 16 to 19-year-old category, 76,000 people needed a booster to prevent one COVID hospitalization. Revisiting Karl Lauterbach’s admission of 1 in 10,000, most likely an underestimate, that would mean 7.6 people would need to seek medical care from the shot to prevent one hospitalization due to COVID. 

Looking at severe hospitalization in the 20 to 29-year-old age group, 41.18 would need to seek medical care from the shot to prevent one severe hospitalization due to COVID.

Let me state that again: For the vaccine to prevent ONE hospitalization, the same vaccine will send FORTY-ONE 20-29-year-olds to clinics and, yes, hospitals seeking medical care.

As the window of reality shines upon the true nature of  COVID vaccine injury many are now wondering why the shot is not being pulled from the market. Politics, money, and control appear to be key factors in continuing to push the most devastating pharmaceutical product, in terms of people harmed, in modern history.
