Last month, GreatGameIndia published a story on the VAERS entry regarding the death of a 2-year-old from Pfizer vaccine. Since, the vaccination trials were only for children from age 5 to 11 officially, we asked “how come a 2 year old baby got vaccinated” and that “the incident should be investigated by CDC immediately.” Now the CDC has removed the VAERS entry without providing any details.
On 28th April GreatGameIndia published a story on the VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) entry regarding the death of a 2-year-old who in late February had received the second dose of a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine during the companies’ clinical trials for children.
Below are the details:
A two-year-old girl received her second (Dose 2) experimental Pfizer mRNA shot on February 25. She apparently developed some sort of serious adverse reaction on March 1. The baby was dead on March 3. No further details were provided.
The mainstream media is silent on this issue, so is the CDC. The incident should be investigated by CDC immediately.

Soon after our reporting the issue became a controversy and the CDC was asked to comment on it.
Fact-checkers soon started to debunk the story claiming that “children under 5 did not begin receiving shots until April.” This was claimed by 3 eminent fact-checkers from Newsweek.
This in itself is a false statement. Vaccine trials for babies as young as 6 are underway atleast since March.
Pfizer and Moderna are going through clinical trials for their mRNA shots on more than 10,000 children as young as six months old. The trials of these vaccines started in mid-March.
The above details were provided in the very second paragraph of our article. Even Pfizer claims the same thing.
In March 2021, Pfizer and BioNTech dosed the first healthy children in a global Phase 1/2/3 continuous study to further evaluate the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine in children 11 years to 6 month old.
Further, the fact-checkers themselves agree that there was such an entry recorded in the VAERS system.
“It is true that a report was submitted to VAERS on March 5, 2021, which stated that a two-year-old from Virginia received a COVID-19 vaccine on Feb. 25, experienced the onset of side effects on March 1, and died two days later.”
So now the issue is blamed on VAERS. The CDC spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund said via email to USA Today that it was removed from the system for being “completely made up.”
As Newsweek puts it, “the CDC took the rare step of removing it from the VAERS system.”
The only explanation given for the rate removal of the VAERS entry was that it was “completely made up”. The are no details provided whatsoever.
Further, the controversy is being blamed on VAERS for being unreliable and a noisy system by design. They say VAERS is being abused by its users.
However, it is true the other way round as well. VAERS can also be abused by those agencies who collect all the data as well. The question is why is not being fixed?
It should be noted that it was only because of the VAERS system that the blood-clots caused by vaccines were picked up.
“The good news for a very rare event is it will pop up on VAERS,” Dr. Jesse Goodman, a former chief scientist with the FDA said on a call with reporters.
It should be remembered that when we first started reporting on the blood-clots issue, even that was branded by fact-checkers at the time as being false information. Now it is an established fact.
German scientists have found the exact 2 step process how the COVID-19 vaccine causes blood clots in recipients. They describe a series of events that has to happen in the body before the vaccines create these large clots.
Even, the ban on Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine was lifted with a condition that it will now include a safety label warning that its vaccine comes with blood clot risks.
Meanwhile, for reporting extensively on the blood clots controversy, GreatGameIndia is being targeted and being accused of spreading misinformation for the flimsy reason that our tweets were shared widely after the controversy.
Moreover, the VAERS system was used in 1999 to identify a rotavirus vaccine that had an increased risk of a bowel obstruction condition, and confirmatory research led to the vaccine’s use being suspended.
That is the power of VAERS. And this is what the vaccine manufacturers fear.
The real issue is that, a federal study commissioned by HHS and performed by Harvard consultants on behalf of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) found that only “fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events” are ever reported to VAERS.
Why is this crucial study not taken into account by fact-checkers? Or even the CDC?
