On YouTube, Charlie Kirk speculates that 1.2 million people could've died from the COVID-19 vaccine “Why are our leaders all a sudden peddling the vaccine?” Written by Media Matters Staff Published 07/21/21 2:50 PM EDT Video file Citation From the July 21, 2021, edition of The Charlie Kirk Show, streamed on YouTube CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): So as we've been talking about throughout this entire hour, the new VAERS data according to the CDC website, VAERS is a public portal that you can plug into. The Vaccine Adverse Effect Reporting System shows that there's as many as 12,313 deaths after getting the vaccine. We've also gone into detail about how VAERS and the FDA -- according to this study of the Electronic Support for Public Health -- Vaccine Adverse Effect Reporting System -- shows that it may really might only reflect 1%. So, if VAERS is off by 99%, that would mean 1.2 million people died after getting the vaccine. If VAERS is off by 90%, that means that -- make sure I get my math right here. That's right. If VAERS is only calculating 10%, that means 123,000 people died. ... More than double the amount of people who have died from COVID in the U.S. I'm not saying that's true. I'm saying that according to how we calculate VAERS, by the independent study that was administered, this could be true. So where are our elected leaders looking into this? Why are our leaders all a sudden peddling the vaccine? For the facts about VAERS, see here, here, or here.
