- The Facts:
- Canada’s national vaccine injury compensation program has released new numbers revealing how many Canadians have reported severe adverse reactions from COVID vaccines and requested compensation.
- Of 6,703 serious adverse events reported, there have been 400 claims seeking compensation for injury.
- Fewer than five have been approved.
- Reflect On:
- Why has the mainstream failed to have an appropriate discussion regarding vaccine injuries?
- Are they really as rare as we are made to believe?
- Are vaccine injury programs doing a proper job in monitoring potential vaccine injuries?

Just prior to the rollout of COVID vaccines in December 2020, Canada announced the creation of a vaccine injury compensation program (VISP). The program applies to all Health Canada approved vaccines administered from December 8, 2020 on and will provide compensation to those the government determines have been injured from vaccines. It was officially launched in June 2021.
The program has since received 400 financial compensation claims of serious COVID vaccine injuries despite the fact that 6,703 serious adverse events have been reported so far. Of the 400 claims, fewer than five have been approved.

According to the data recently released by the Canadian government, 387 of those claims have been assigned a case manager and 64 are inadmissible, meaning they do not meet the eligibility criteria or are unable to move forward in the process due to incomplete information. 323 have been deemed admissible.
Of the admissible claims, 127 are pending preliminary medical review by a physician to determine if additional medical records are required, and 196 claims have had their preliminary medical review completed.
These numbers come despite the fact that as of Dec. 17, there have been 29,806 reports of adverse events in Canada following immunization from a COVID-19 vaccine. The fact that 6,703 were considered serious means there is a good chunk of people with serious adverse reactions who are not going through VISP for compensation. This could be for many reasons, one of them being Canadians may not even be aware of VISP.
Furthermore, only healthcare providers can report these events, so it’s important to ask how many vaccine injuries have not been reported due to a healthcare provider believing the vaccine wasn’t the cause?
We recently covered a story about a man who, a day after his first COVID vaccine his heart rate rapidly increased and he started having extreme neurological issues. His doctor refused to sign the Vaccine Injury Support Program form or acknowledge the issues as vaccine related.
There is a medical review board representing the Canadian government that is made up of physicians who are tasked to determine if there is an association between the injury and the vaccine.
The next public reporting will be made no later than June 1st, 2022.
Determining whether or not an injury is the result of vaccines can be difficult. When it comes to COVID vaccinations, if someone has a heart attack or other ailment that arises from COVID vaccines a year later for example, there is almost a zero percent chance the vaccination will be considered. This comes despite the fact that there are some strong signals that this vaccine can cause a slow erosion of the endothelium.
This is one of many reasons experts in the field believe that vaccine injuries are severely underreported.
A study published on October 7, 2021 in the Journal Toxicology Reports estimates that underreporting of deaths as a result of the COVID vaccines may have resulted in a number 1000 times less than what the actual number is.
They also cite a widely distributed Harvard Pilgrim study published in 2010 which reported that less than 1 percent of vaccine injuries are probably reported. This includes serious adverse reactions.
This is very common with drugs as well. Multiple studies have found that many adverse reactions and serious adverse reactions to prescription drugs are not reported or are under-reported by up to 95 percent.
Documents released by the FDA in accordance with a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request reveal that Pfizer was aware of more than 50,000 serious adverse reactions during the first three months of the vaccine rollout. A large portion of these were “medically confirmed” while others were not. For example, Table 1. in Pfizer’s documents accounts 42,086 reactions to their COVID-19 vaccine over a 90-day period from December 1st. 2020 – February 28th, 2021. 25,379 reactions were ‘medically confirmed’ while 16,707 were ‘not-medically confirmed.’
Vaccine safety adverse events reporting systems around the world are recording a record number of injuries. By October 15th, 2021, adverse events reported worldwide passed 2,344,240 for COVID vaccines alone in the World Health Organization (WHO) reporting system VigiAccess.
