Older people are at increased risk of dying from COVID-19 vaccines, with the risk of death doubling roughly every four years, according to a recent report.
The Sept. 17 study, published by the nonprofit research organization CORRELATION, analyzed COVID-19 vaccinations and all-cause mortality (ACM) data from seventeen equatorial and Southern-Hemisphere countries. In two nations—Chile and Peru—the researchers had access to detailed age and dose data. The risk of death per injection was found to increase “exponentially with age” in these nations for people above 60 years—with the risk “doubling approximately every four years in age.”
By dose four, or the second booster, the risk of death per injection reaches 5 percent, which is equivalent to 1 death per 20 injections.
“The older the people, the greater the risk of dying from COVID-19 vaccines and the more deaths there are,” Denis Rancourt, an author of the study, said in an Oct. 12 interview with investigative journalist Sonia Elijah. The 1 in 20 risk of death among the elderly population is a “massive risk of dying from a medical intervention that’s normally intended to help people.”
This doubling in mortality risk per COVID-19 injection every 4-5 years is around two times faster than the 10-year doubling rate of the yearly risk of death due to key old-age illnesses like cancer, pneumonia, and heart disease.
The 5 percent risk of death per COVID-19 vaccination among people aged 90 and above in Chile and Peru is much larger compared to these numbers in other countries. For instance, other studies have found the risk of death per COVID-19 injection to be at 1 percent among all ages in India, 0.55 percent for 80+ year-olds in Israel, and 0.93 percent for 85+ year-olds in Australia.
“This turns the public health policy of prioritizing elderly people for injection with COVID-19 vaccines on its head,” the study noted.
Such public health policy is based on two false assumptions, it said. The first is that there is a constant “age-independent” risk of death per injection. The second is that the risk of death per injection is a “small value,” which is based on optimistic estimates from “managed trials funded by the pharmaceutical industry.”
“Our research shows that both assumptions are false and far from reality in the field, on the scale of nations,” the study noted. “Prioritizing elderly people for COVID-19 vaccination, in the absence of relevant data, was reckless.”
The high risk of death per injection should make governments halt “the baseless public health policy of prioritizing elderly people for injection with COVID-19 vaccines until valid risk-benefit analyses are made and publicly reported,” the study said. “The same may be true of seasonal influenza vaccines.”
17 Million COVID Vaccine Deaths
The seventeen nations analyzed in the study are—Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Malaysia, New Zealand, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Suriname, Thailand, and Uruguay. Together, they make up 9.10 percent of the global population and 10.3 percent of worldwide COVID-19 injections.
The study calculated that there were around 1.74 million deaths caused by COVID-19 vaccination in the 17 nations. Extrapolating this to the global level resulted in an estimated 17 million COVID-19 vaccine deaths worldwide by Sept. 2, 2023.
The analysis shows that “the global COVID-19 vaccination campaign was in effect a mass iatrogenic event that killed” roughly 0.213 percent of the world population “and did not measurably prevent any deaths.” The term “iatrogenic” means any illness that is induced unintentionally by a physician, diagnostic procedure, or medical treatment.
There were approximately 1 death per 800 COVID-19 vaccine injections globally, the study estimated.
Researchers found that in 15 out of the 17 nations in the study that had sufficient mortality data, there was an “unprecedented and relatively sharp peak or surge” in all-cause mortality during the Jan-Feb 2022 period, around the time of a rapid rollout of COVID-19 vaccine boosters while non-booster doses were also being administered.
“There can be little doubt that the mass COVID-19 vaccination campaigns caused the temporally associated excess mortality in the 17 countries of the present study and in other countries studied to date,” it said.
“If vaccines prevented transmission, infection or serious illness, then there should be decreases in mortality following vaccine rollouts, not increases, as in every observed elderly age group subjected to rapid booster rollouts,” the study argued.
“And, mortality would not increase solely when vaccines are rolled out, where no excess mortality occurs prior to vaccine rollouts, as we have documented here, in nine countries across three continents.”
The researchers also noted that they have found “no evidence” in their analysis of all-cause mortality data that “COVID-19 vaccines had any beneficial effect.”
The Epoch Times reached out to Pfizer, BioNTech and Moderna for comment regarding the study.
Warning Against Vaccination
Some studies related to the safety of COVID-19 vaccines have shown them to be safe, while others highlight its dangers.
For instance, a December 2022 study found that “compared to placebo, most vaccines reduce or likely reduce, the proportion of participants with confirmed symptomatic COVID-19, and for some, there is high-certainty evidence that they reduce severe or critical disease.”
However, a June 2022 study that looked at mRNA vaccinations found that “Pfizer and Moderna mRNA COVID-19 vaccines were associated with an increased risk of serious adverse events of special interest (AESI).”
The CORRELATION study comes after Florida’s Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo advised people under 65 years of age not to take the new COVID-19 mRNA vaccines and for those over 65 to discuss the risks of the COVID-19 mRNA vaccine with their doctor to decide on their health approach during the pandemic.
“There’s essentially no evidence for it. There’s been no clinical trial done in human beings showing that it benefits people, there’s been no clinical trial showing that it is a safe product for people,” he said during a news conference.
“There are multiple studies now from around the world, Brazil, Australia, United States that show that over time these vaccines, these mRNA COVID-19 products actually increase your chances of contracting COVID-19.”
A March report from global macro investment firm Phinance Technologies estimated that COVID-19 vaccines led to over 26 million people in the United States getting injured, costing the economy almost $150 billion.
