1 in 5,000 COVID-19 Shots Leads to Severe Adverse Reaction, According to German Ministry of Health


Several months ago, a board member of a large German health insurance company sounded the alarm regarding data for insured individuals with COVID-19 injection complications.

BKK Board Member Andreas Schöfbeck said in a report by WELT, “According to our calculations, we consider 400,000 visits to the doctor by our policyholders because of vaccination complications to be realistic to this day. Extrapolated to the total population, this value would be three million.”

Board Member of Large German Health Insurance Company Says Number of COVID-19 Jab Side Effects Much Higher Than Official Reports

Now, the German Ministry of Health is relaying disturbing numbers of individuals who've suffered severe adverse reactions to the COVID-19 injections.

"One in 5,000 is affected by a severe adverse reaction after a COVID vaccination."

To clarify, the statement means there is 1 reported severe reaction per 5,000 vaccine injections.

(Translated): Correction: According to @PEI_Germany, the reporting rate for serious reactions is 0.2 reports per 1,000 vaccine doses.

According to Our World in Data, Germany has administered 184 million COVID-19 injection doses.

Given the reporting rate for serious reactions (0.2/1,000 = 0.0002)


184 million x 0.0002 = 36,800 serious adverse reactions. 

Let's apply this reporting rate for the United States.

According to Our World in Data, the United States has administered 599 million COVID-19 injection doses.

599 million x 0.0002 = 119,800 serious adverse reactions. 

With VAERS-reported hospitalizations above 160,000, I'd estimate the reporting rate for serious adverse reactions is even worse.
