Political consensus? Celebrations, with over 5,000 plus post-vaccine deaths in India

By Rosamma Thomas* 

As India fully vaccinated nearly 20% of its population and celebrated the “milestone” of administering one billion (100 crore) Covid-19 vaccine doses, it was time to remember those who died shortly after vaccination. By October 20, 2021 Twitter handle C400T, tracking deaths reported to have occurred after receiving the Covid-19 shot in India, updated the 5,134th death.
Earlier, in April this year, it was reported that 700 cases of serious adverse reactions to the vaccine would be investigated. The results of that probe are not yet available. Meanwhile, in the US, over four lakh cases of adverse reactions were reported by July 2021. In the European Union, at least 66 deaths were reported by April 2021, months after the vaccine was first launched.
Despite the obvious – and not rare – adverse reactions, there is no sign that the decision to vaccinate will be reviewed. Across the world, there is a call for vaccinating larger and larger numbers of people, even though a large percentage of the global population is most likely protected by natural infection now.
There are scientists who hold that the best protected are those who have once been infected – natural infection is held to be far superior to vaccine-induced immunity, which both wears off with time and protects only partially, leaving even the vaccinated prone to infection.
Awaken India Movement, which is campaigning to prevent the vaccination of children and pregnant women without first studying the long-term impact of such an intervention, has been petitioning the President and Prime Minister to review the need for the vaccine. 
Never before in history has an experiment with a drug been carried out on such a scale, the movement’s website records. This group has been sending weekly updates to the President and the Prime Minister, noting the number of post-vaccine deaths and seeking a halt in vaccination until proper safety studies are carried out and more data is obtained of long-term effects. AIM is also collecting testimonials of the affected.

Pune resident Moinuddin, who works with a local packer and mover company, took the first dose of Covishield on September 20, 2021. He said: 
“I would not have taken it at all, and was convinced that there was no need for it. I had to travel to Dubai by December, and was forced to get the jab in order to be allowed to travel. Just days after the jab, I had clots on my arms and near the neck, and even on the legs. There were visible clot marks, and I was itching a great deal. I also felt weak and did not want to report to work. There is no way now that I will take the second dose. The fact that this jab does not suit me is something I know better than anyone else, no matter what the propaganda is.”
Seventy-year-old KV Dominic received the jab in April. By August, a lump on the neck of this resident of Pala, Kerala, was diagnosed as cancer. “They tell me that it cannot be connected to the jab,” he says. Dominic has had a lifetime of good health so far; he would often be complimented for appearing younger than his age, and he did a great deal of manual work on his farm. A doctor in Idaho, US, reported that there was a huge spike in cancer cases at his pathology laboratory ever since the rollout of the vaccine.
Despite all the data-gathering by private citizens and groups, however, there is political consensus that the way out of the so-called “pandemic” is through the vaccine. The government and Opposition parties in India are both agreed on this, and questioning the need for the vaccine is not allowed in the mainstream media. Globally, doctors opposing mass vaccination find their licence to practice at risk.
Something is rotten. And not in the state of Denmark.
