On September 10, WXYZ-TV Channel 7 posed a question to their viewership on Facebook.
After the vaccines were available to everyone, did you lose an unvaccinated loved one to COVID-19? If you’re willing to share your family’s story, please DM us your contact information. We may reach out for a story we’re working on.
What they got was an avalanche of stories of vaccine injuries and deaths instead. Did they pivot and do a story about vaccine injuries and deaths? Of course not. Below is a sampling of the more that 252,000 comments posted on the site:
“How about doing a story about my uncle who was in fine shape until he got vaccinated. Or my boss’s uncle who was healthy and in his 50s, then died suddenly a week after getting vaccinated.”
“My sister-in-law’s father died of a stroke 48H after Moderna vax. He was active and healthy.”
“The shot murdered my friend three weeks after he got it.”
“I know 2 women who had strokes aright after their shot.”
“We lost an uncle to heart inflammation 2 days after he received the vaccine.”
“Lost a very dear man after his second dose of the vaccine and he said he regretted getting it and he advised me not to get it. How about reporting on those? He died of a brain aneurysm, and was a very healthy man.”
“My beautiful mother passed away recently, 23 days after having the first AstraZeneca shot (that I didn’t know she was getting). ‘Immunization’ was the ‘cause of death’ on her death certificate.”
“I now know more people injured by the vaccine than people who even had covid.”
“No, but I know of two people who died from Covid after being fully vaccinated.”
“My uncle passed away 3 months after his second shot. He was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer, had surgery, was released to rehab and then died of a blood clot. Thanks Pfizer.”
“I know of two women who had miscarriages within 2 days of taking it.”
As noted by one commenter, “Doesn’t sound like you’re getting the story you need judging by the vast majority of these comments about vaccine losses and side effects. Since there is such an overwhelming outpouring of vaccine reactions, maybe do a story on that?”
