While myocarditis was presented as one of the first line vaccine injuries to garner worldwide attention, a large German insurance company, BKK, has estimated 2.5-3 million people in Germany are under treatment for side-effects caused by the Covid shot vaccination.
“For the first time, the figures from a large German health insurance association are available on the side effects of Covid vaccines. The board of directors of BKK ProVita, Andreas Schöfbeck, had the data of millions of insured persons of the BKK group analysed.”
The German news outlet Welt.de has reported that “An analysis of millions of insured persons’ data from the BKK company health insurance company comes to significantly higher figures for side effects than the Paul Ehrlich Institute.
By using the company’s nearly 11 million insured participants, they ran a query using International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes for vaccine side effects. Looking at just the first half of 2021 and “about half for the third quarter of 2021” found that 216,695 people had already been treated for vaccine side effects from Covid vaccination“.
Andreas Schöfbeck said that this new data is an “alarm signal,” and he sent a letter which contains the details of this “alarm signal” to the Paul Ehrlich institute, which is the agency of the German Federal Ministry of Health responsible for vaccines and medicines regulation.
The letter continues, “…with regard to the number of vaccinated people in Germany, this means that about 4-5% of the vaccinated people were under medical treatment for side effects of vaccination.”
This event marks the first time that a private insurance company has audited its data to challenge a governmental heath agency on the widespread underreporting of vaccine side effects, since, it has been consistently found that vaccine side effects are chronically underreported.
“In the United States, a study funded by Health and Human Services conducted by Harvard Medical School tracked reporting to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) over a three-year period at Harvard Pilgrim Health Care involving 715,000 patients and found that “fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported.”
