Florida Health issued an alert to the health care sector regarding a “substantial increase” of COVID vaccine injuries.
The state’s communications office issued the health alert on Wednesday.
“The State Surgeon General is notifying the health care sector and public of a substantial increase in Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) reports from Florida after the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.”
“In Florida alone, there was a 1,700% increase in VAERS reports after the release of the COVID-19 vaccine, compared to an increase of 400% in overall vaccine administration for the same time period,” the statement read.
The alert pointed to studies suggesting the risks are far greater than other vaccines pose.
One study showed the excess risk of adverse effects from the COVID vaccine was 1 in 550 individuals, “including coagulation disorders, acute cardiac injuries, Bell’s palsy, and encephalitis.”
State Health Officer Joseph A. Ladapo said that President Biden and Big Pharma “continue to blindly push mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, Florida remains dedicated to responding to public health concerns guided by data and common sense.”
The state alert reminded health care providers to communicate these risks before giving the vaccine.
This alert follows an October notice from Florida Health, when the department said that men under 40 should avoid the COVID vaccine due to the risk of cardiac-related death.
The updated guidance included an analysis that showed an 84% increase in the risk of cardiac-related death for males between 18-39 years old within 28 days following the COVID vaccine.
As for Canada, the government has acknowledged over 10,000 Canadians have suffered a “serious” injury from the COVID vaccine but continues to recommend all Canadians get “up-to-date” vaccinated.
