...Known as the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, or VAERS, the database includes hundreds of thousands of reports of health events that occurred minutes, hours or days after vaccination. Many of the reported events are coincidental -- things that happen by chance, not caused by the shot. But when millions of people are vaccinated within a short period, the total number of these reported events can look big.

Epidemiologists consider this database as only a starting point in the search for rare but potentially serious vaccine side effects. Far more work must be done before a cause-and-effect link can be determined between a reported health event and a vaccine....

My wife and I had zero effects from the Pfizer vaccine other than the usual slight soreness at the injection site, as we do any time you touch your arm where a shot went in.

Covid side effects are listed in databases as well. One being obituaries.

I got Pfizered and felt fine for a day, then fatigued for 3 days and then dizzy for one. I have no idea if how I felt had anything to do with the vaccine. I don't care if it did and would endure that again to get protected.

Anti-vaxxers are actinic. Civilized society much have not invited them to the prom and they're out for blood. I wonder how many people they've already killed?

Nineteen Percent of Asymptomatic COVID-19 Patients Develop Long-Haul COVID

...Nineteen percent of COVID-19 patients without symptoms went on to exhibit at least one of the post-COVID conditions known as long-haul COVID 30 days or more after their initial COVID-19 diagnosis.1 This is among the findings in FAIR Health's new white paper, the eighth of its COVID-19 studies, A Detailed Study of Patients with Long-Haul COVID: An Analysis of Private Healthcare Claims[1]. The report uses FAIR Health's repository of private healthcare claims data to study 1,959,982 COVID-19 patients"the largest population of COVID-19 patients ever studied for long-haul COVID"over the period from February 2020 to February 2021....

It seems like the anti-vaxxers playing the odds may want to look at the COVID-long data as it surfaces.

Pfizer vaccine is 88% effective against the Delta variant after both shots.

So, still 12% unprotected, so wear a mask when you're in a crowd or indoors to be safe. Anti-mask/anti-vaxxers will continue to spread the Delta and other new variants.

BTW, testing is down. Reported cases most likely don't reflect the reality of how many new cases a day in the U.S.
