The Revealing Accounting of Vaccine Damage

by Ulrich Adam

Since 1 April 2021, numerous cases of adverse reactions in connection with Covid-19 vaccinations have been documented in Germany and billed to health insurers – the picture painted there testifies to a comparatively poor safety profile. Who doesn’t know the obligatory slogan after every TV or radio advertisement for non-prescription drugs? At the end it always says in unison: “For risks and side effects, read the package leaflet and ask your doctor or pharmacist.”

The package leaflet is rarely seen with Covid 19 vaccines, and enquiries with doctors and pharmacists about possible side effects are often not very meaningful or informative. In view of the fact that the substances have only been on the market for just under 14 months,
longer empirical values are of course not available.

At the same time, there are a large number of articles and reports on side effects on the internet, most of which are anecdotal and suggestive and do not necessarily help to make a sober scientific assessment.

So where can an interested layperson start? One of the official pieces of information from the Federal Ministry of Health already makes one wonder: the risk of myocarditis is given here as 1:5000, an extremely poor value for a vaccine in terms of safety profile – both in
comparison to other classic inactivated vaccines and under medical ethical and regulatory aspects. After all, vaccines are usually administered to healthy persons and must therefore rightly meet the highest safety requirements. The latest report of the Paul Ehrlich Institute on reported suspected side effects is complex, but points in a similar direction: severe side effects are estimated in a similar order of magnitude (2/10,000).

Worrying data

It is good that there is the INEK database, which contains the services documented and billed in German hospitals. Unfortunately, there are no regular reliable summaries regarding the frequency and severity of Covid-19 vaccination reactions registered there. But as long as
you know that since 1 April 2021 the code U12.9 can be used for such adverse event diagnoses, you can do a little research yourself in the publicly accessible database.

The picture that emerges there for the period from 1 April to 31 December 2021 confirms the comparatively poor safety profile, and the full extent of toxicity does not yet seem to be covered.

Even taking into account the high number of Covid-19 vaccine doses administered in total during this period (around 110 million), the frequency and severity of side effects is considerable. 14,367 cases were treated in German hospitals, 1,652 of which involved a stay
in intensive care, and 170 people died.

In addition to the deaths, the intensive care stays are worrying, since it was precisely the avoidance of a potential temporary overload situation in intensive care units in Germany that was cited as the primary justification for the measures – and vaccinations – taken.
The breadth and (in some cases) severity of the adverse events recorded is also worrying.

Many of the primary diagnoses recorded in association with U12.9 as a secondary diagnosis (369 in total) are consistent with those in the emerging scientific literature. For example, the available data show significant adverse events in seven prominent areas (myocarditis,
pericarditis, non-pyogenic thrombosis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, tachycardia, hypoaesthesia/paraesthesia of the skin, pulmonary embolism) – in addition to the numerous others (many of which, however, are also mild and temporary, such as headache).

Urgent data research needed

A comparison with the data for the previous year’s period also indicates a possible under-recording/under-use of the U12.9 code. For myocarditis (codes I40.8, I40.9, I51.4), an 80% increase in total cases compared to the previous year is reported. 4,478 cases in the last 9
months of 2021 were compared to 2,481 cases in the same period in 2020. Of the 4,478 total cases, 618, or about 30 per cent of the increase, were associated with a Covid 19 vaccine adverse event.

Although it cannot be excluded that other factors may have played a role in the massive increase in myocarditis cases in 2021, a possible under-reporting seems plausible. Further data research is urgently needed to clarify the situation in order to prevent possible harm to people.

Slogans and slogans can no longer help to overcome the existing uncertainties. Risks and side effects are not a banality, certainly not in the context of a mass vaccination campaign. A broader discussion and more extensive educational work on risks and side effects appear to be urgently needed.

English Translation of the Health insurance company BKK letter to the Paul Erlich Institute re: Vaccine AR under-reporting (as reported in the Berliner Zeitung Feb 24, 2022)

The health insurance company BKK has evaluated millions of insured data. According to this, the stated case numbers of the Paul-Ehrlich-Institute on vaccination consequences are too low.

A major German health insurer has recorded figures on side effects of Covid vaccines. It said the result was “a significant alarm signal.” According to BKK ProVita, the number of side effects is many times higher than those officially announced by the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI).

In a letter to the PEI (available to the Berliner Zeitung – read in German), it says: “In our eyes, there is a considerable under-reporting of vaccination side effects.” The board of BKK ProVita, Andreas Schöfbeck, told the world: “According to our calculations, we consider 400,000 doctor visits of our insured due to vaccination complications to date realistic.”

The health insurance company has had the data of millions of insured persons of the BKK group analyzed. Based on the evaluated data, Schöfbeck also concludes that “danger to human life cannot be ruled out.” Schöfbeck has now written a letter to Prof. Dr. Klaus Cichutek, the president of the Paul Ehrlich Institute. The letter also went to the GKV-Spitzenverband, the Federal Medical Association, the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians, the Standing Vaccination Commission and the BKK Dachverband. The Berliner Zeitung publishes the letter with the headline “Heftiges Warnsignal bei codierten Impfnebenwirkungen nach Corona Impfung” in its wording.


the letter:

“Dear Prof. Dr. Cichutek, The Paul Ehrlich Institute has announced via press release that 244,576 suspected cases for vaccination adverse events after Corona vaccination were reported for the calendar year 2021. The data available to our institution give us reason to believe that there is a very significant under-reporting of suspected cases for vaccination adverse events after Corona vaccination. I am enclosing an evaluation of this in my letter.

The data basis for our evaluation is physician billing data. Our sample is from the anonymized data set of the company health insurance funds. The sample comprises 10,937,716 insured persons. So far, we have the physicians’ billing data for the first half of 2021 and approximately half for the third quarter of 2021. Our query includes valid ICD codes for vaccination adverse events. This analysis has shown, although we do not yet have the complete data for 2021, that based on the available figures we now already assume 216,695 treated cases of vaccine adverse events after Corona vaccination from this sample.

If these numbers are extrapolated to the entire year and to the population in Germany, probably 2.5-3 million people in Germany have received medical treatment for vaccination side effects after Corona vaccination. We regard this as a considerable alarm signal that must be taken into account in the further use of vaccines. In our view, the figures can be validated relatively easily and also in the short term by asking the other types of health insurance funds (AOKs, substitute health insurance funds, etc.) for a corresponding evaluation of the data available to them. Extrapolated to the number of vaccinated people in Germany, this means that approximately 4-5 percent of vaccinated people received medical treatment for vaccination side effects.

In our view, there is a considerable under-reporting of vaccination side effects. It is an important concern to identify the causes for this in the short term. Our first assumption is that, since no compensation is paid for reporting vaccine adverse events, reporting to the Paul Ehrlich Institute is often not done because of the great expense involved. Physicians have reported to us that reporting a suspected vaccine adverse event takes about half an hour. This means that 3 million suspected cases of vaccine adverse events require about 1.5 million working hours of physicians. That would be almost the annual workload of 1,000 physicians. This should be clarified in the same short term.

A copy of this letter will therefore also be sent to the German Medical Association and the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians. The GKV-Spitzenverband will also receive a copy of this letter with the request to obtain corresponding data analyses from all health insurance companies.

Since danger to human life cannot be ruled out, we request that you provide feedback on the measures initiated by 6 p.m. on February 22, 2022.

Yours sincerely

Andreas Schöfbeck Vorstand
