Excluding “foreign reports” to VAERS, a total of 691,884 adverse events, including 9,295 deaths and 59,767 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S. between December 14, 2020, and December 10, 2021.
Foreign reports are reports received by U.S. manufacturers from their foreign affiliates. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations, if a report is obtained from a U.S. manufacturer, the U.S. manufacturer must notify the U.S. FDA.
If a manufacturer is notified of a foreign case report that describes an event that is serious and does not appear on the product label, the manufacturer must send the report to VAERS.
Of the 9,295 U.S. deaths reported as of Dec. 10, 21% occurred within 24 hours after vaccination, 26% occurred within 48 hours after vaccination, and 61% occurred in persons who experienced symptom onset within 48 hours after vaccination.
