Omission of Children’s COVID-19 Vaccine Deaths In Australia Raises Concerns
The Epoch Times ^ | March 7, 2023 | Victoria Kelly-Clark

Posted on 03/07/2023 9:03:06 AM PST by george76

Australia’s drug regulator was slow to update the country’s Database of Adverse Event Notifications (DAEN) despite several deaths being attributed to the vaccine, including two children, aged 7 and 9.

The information came to light following a Freedom of Information request by an Australian doctor that found the delayed response from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

Senator Gerard Rennick said he would push for independent oversight of the TGA.

“A third independent medical party should examine the evidence as the TGA has a conflict of interest because they approved the vaccines and would therefore be held responsible for the deaths of these children due to poor regulatory oversight,” Rennick told .


The senator also said he was concerned that the TGA was soft-pedalling the risks with the COVID-19 vaccines, especially around myocarditis and cardiac arrests.

“They are definitely downplaying the risks. They do not have enough information to rule it out given the known link between the vaccines and myocarditis and myocarditis and cardiac arrests,” Rennick said.

As of March 6, the DAEN states that since the beginning of the vaccination rollout in Australia, 137,576 adverse events have been reported relating to the range of COVID-19 vaccines. Of those, 134,224 are believed to be directly related to the vaccines, while 980 are vaccine-related deaths.

What the Vaccine Safety Investigation Group Does..

The TGA does have a pre-existing independent review vehicle for vaccines called the Vaccine Safety Investigation Group (VSIG).

The group is meant to provide independent expertise to assist the TGA in investigating and managing Adverse Event Following Immunisation (AEFI) cases.

The group is described as a time-limited working group of experts that can be convened when a single serious AEFI—that is unexpected and without an obvious non-vaccine cause—occurs. The TGA notes that an AEFI is considered unexpected when it is not listed in the product information document for a drug, or when causality cannot be established.

Alternatively, the group can be established when a serious AEFI results in death, is life-threatening, requires inpatient or prolonged hospitalisation, results in persistent or significant disability/incapacity, or a congenital anomaly/birth defect.

It can also be established when an AEFI is above an expected rate or level of severity, or there is a cluster of AEFIs that are serious or could be due to administration or quality issues. A cluster is considered to be two or more cases of the same or similar events related in time, geography, and/or vaccine administered.

Despite the 100,000 plus adverse events recorded, according to the TGA’s website, the VSIG has been convened only a couple of times during the pandemic.

One instance occurred on Jan. 21, 2022, to discuss two fatal cases of suspected thrombosis with thrombocytopenia following a second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

“Both cases were complex and involved patients with underlying conditions that could have caused their symptoms. After extensive deliberation, the panel concluded there was not sufficient evidence to link either case to vaccination,” the TGA said.

TGA Head Defends Agency’s Record..

The deputy secretary of Health Products Regulation Group, Prof. John Skerritt, defended the TGA’s decision to recommend the vaccines in a Senate Estimates hearing in February.

He said that while the TGA acknowledged and apologised for the pain and distress of those seriously injured from the vaccines, those reactions were rarity.

“I have actually apologised on national television, together with former Minister Hunt, when the first death—the first sad death was a lady from the Central Coast. We apologised in writing for what were weekly and are now fortnightly vaccine safety reports.

“So we put out detailed public reports—as well as doing media—on vaccine safety, and, in those, we acknowledged the pain and distress of those who had been seriously injured, but we also emphasised the extreme rarity of these conditions,” he said.


He noted that all modern medicine comes with a set of associated risks, adding that many other common medicines have a higher rate of injury and death than the COVID-19 vaccines.

“We have modern medicines, and every medicine has risks as well as benefits,” Skerritt said. “By way of indication: since the beginning of the COVID pandemic, more than 10 times as many people have died from paracetamol, from Panadol, as from adverse events due to COVID vaccines.”

According to the DAEN website, since 2020, adverse events attributed to Panadol number 99; of those adverse events, 58 are believed to be directly tied to the medicine with four reported deaths.

The DEAN website also notes that since 1971, there have been 1,002 adverse events related to Panadol with 38 deaths.

Doctors Hands Are Tied..

Meanwhile, an Australian doctor who spoke to The Epoch Times on condition of anonymity, said they knew of hundreds of Australians suffering adverse reactions.

“I know of literally hundreds who are suffering from adverse events; they have had their WorkCover or government compensation claims declined and have been left with disabling injuries,” the doctor said.

“As doctors, we really do not know how to treat these adverse events; there is limited information and limited collaboration because overall there is some reluctance to discuss these events and for some doctors even to admit they are happening.”

Uh huh. Which doesn’t explain why the medical and political establishment seemed first dead set on denying any possible risks that the vaccines might have, and then when that failed, now try their best to conceal and obfuscate on how big those risks might actually be.

If YOU were guilty of injecting dangerous, untested chemicals into children which is killing them, you too would try to hide the truth about how many are dying.

They hid the fact that early treatments like HCQ+Zn & IVM worked well to make the virus irrelevant.

They hid the fact that the safety testing showed these chemicals are DANGEROUS and even sometimes FATAL.

They hid the facts that efficacy testing showed the crap didn't work to stop infection and to stop spreading the cam virus.

#Nuremberg2 is needed and lots of rope is needed to hang these murderers.

“#Nuremberg2 is needed and lots of rope is needed to hang these murderers.”

Well, we only got the first Nuremberg because it was one government in question and all the others were motivated to punish them. Now all the governments are guilty, so they’ll never punish themselves.

If we are ever going to get justice, the people are going to have to take it themselves, we will not get it from governments.
