I am sure all these pro-vaccine people below are so super concerned about the health of people not getting vaccinated, calling them insults. Definitely the most effective way to show people it is about their health and not politics is to insult them and call them "Trump supporters" if they do not choose to get the experimental vaccine. And, as a side note, the demographic that has the lowest vaccination rate is not "Trump supporters", it is black people. Democrats are against voter ID, but places like NY are imposing vaccine passports despite under 30% black vaccination. This means that all these white liberal now get to enjoy their gym and restaurants with 70% less black people. Goes with a long history of democrats being the party of oppression and segregation.

pcg upstate  These people get so angry when they leave Twitter/CNN and see that their view of the world is false and they have just been fed a constant stream of propaganda. It is why they are sitting there wearing two masks even after getting vaccinated waiting for Lord Fauci to tell them what to do next...the same guy who funded the lab that created the virus.

From the CDC page regarding VAERS. Reports of death after COVID-19 vaccination are rare. More than 346 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020, through August 2, 2021. During this time, VAERS received 6,490 reports of death (0.0019%) among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine. FDA requires healthcare providers to report any death after COVID-19 vaccination to VAERS, even if it’s unclear whether the vaccine was the cause. Reports of adverse events to VAERS following vaccination, including deaths, do not necessarily mean that a vaccine caused a health problem. A review of available clinical information, including death certificates, autopsy, and medical records, has not established a causal link to COVID-19 vaccines. However, recent reports indicate a plausible causal relationship between the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine and TTS, a rare and serious adverse event—blood clots with low platelets—which has caused deaths.

jason black Was it magic, Jason? Or were the broad-spectrum statistics previously reported revised because they were counting deaths that didn’t apply? Do you think the previous, unrevised daya was the most accurate? Cherry picking, you are.

Not unsurprisingly, I just viewed the websites for One America News Network, Newsmax and Fox and they have nothing in the first 30 headlines that support any of the claims being made about vaccine-related deaths, hospitalizations or adverse reactions. Oh, I forgot... the “real” information is being suppressed by the leftwing mainstream media.

More than 1/2 of the population is fully vaccination supposedly, and we have close to 100,000 new cases on the average in the past 7 days back to the top of the chart again? Seriously? Comparable to the times when no vaccine was available? Do the Math!  Don't blame the un-vaccinated and be be Biden's sheep!

All you people posting statistics should cite your sources or pound sand. Without the opportunity to verify your information everything you post amounts to rhetoric.

This site is extremely heavy on censorship. It even censored the link for source in the article. Plus, people like you really do not care about sources, you just do not like people challenging your narrative and rather than look stuff up yourself just watch CNN.

Reality, state rankings of COVID-19 death rates per capita, highest to lowest: #1 New York, #2 New Jersey, #3 Massachusetts, #25 Florida. Thousands of COVID positive individuals brought in and spread throughout the US, predominately into red states, from the Southern boarder by the Biden administration. Murder rate in Portland between 2020 and 2021 is up 327%.

bull flag   You mean hot spots of cases? You mean after the CDC altered the way they were counting cases in vaccinated versus unvaccinated people back in May to artificially make it seem like vaccines were working, which we now know they do not prevent people from getting/spreading the virus. The numbers that I posted above are current. The death rates are so low now, even among the unvaccinated, that it has not changed the per capita death rates being predominately in blue states. In fact, even the most vaccinated parts of the country are re-imposing restrictions because of how ineffective vaccines have been at preventing the spread of the virus.

bull flag  And just fyi, republican polling numbers have actually been increasing significantly recently with large drops in support for democrats. Biden and Kamala have seen significant drops in approval. California and New York Governors being recalled and/or impeached. People are not falling for the false narrative...except I guess the last few remaining sheep like you. Republicans value freedom over the "it's for your safety narrative" that has completely fallen apart and been shown to be nothing but statistical malfeasance.
