Areas with higher vaccination rates also show soaring rates of excess deaths, a bombshell new study has revealed.
British researchers conducted an analysis of official data for England and compared vaccination rates and excess death rates for all 300-plus lower-tier administrative areas in the country.
Their findings add to the mounting concerns that the mRNA Covid shots are contributing to the sharp rise in excess deaths that started spiking in mid-2021.
The analysis used the pre-pandemic five-year average (2015-19) as a baseline.
Confounding factors such as age and deprivation were also taken into consideration.
Researchers compared the findings in the vaccination era to those in the first Covid wave, before vaccines were available.
The analysis looked at the three periods of excess deaths in England after the vaccine rollout.
These are, broadly, the Alpha variant period of winter 2020-21 (December 20, 2020, to March 7, 2021), the Delta period of the second half of 2021 (June 27, 2021, to January 9, 2022), and the Omicron period of 2022 (March 27, 2022, to January 1, 2023).
However, it’s important to note that for the milder Delta and Omicron periods, many or most of the excess deaths were not Covid related.
The low vaccine coverage during the Alpha period, very early in the rollout, means the findings for that period are uninformative.
However, the results during the Delta period, when many people had received two doses of the shots, the data is striking.
During this period, starting mid-2021, excess deaths begin soaring in areas with higher vaccination rates.
The data shows that areas with higher vaccination rates have larger increases in excess deaths than those with lower vaccination.
Researchers found that the data was further confirmed when comparing data for those who had received a third dose during the same period.
When compared to the pre-vaccination baseline, excess deaths increase to the point that the figures are higher after the “booster” shots.
The more-boosted areas are slightly worse off than the less-boosted areas during the Alpha period, data shows.
The excess deaths continue to increase as we move into 2022 and the Omicron period in the data sets.
The results show that excess deaths in 2022 are much more concentrated in more-vaccinated than less-vaccinated areas of England.
When comparing the pre-rollout data to the Omicron period, it shows a significant rise in excess death rates.
Data analyst Joel Smalley, who led the analysis, commented: “As always, remember, the burden is not on me to prove that Covid jabs result in higher excess deaths, the obligation is solely on the jab pushers to prove unequivocally that they reduce death.”
So far, the U.K. government has refused to carry out an investigation into the cause of the skyrocketing excess deaths seen across the country.
