US Health Agencies' Record of False Pediatric Death Statistics
A record of the times the CDC, FDA, and Pfizer cited false or inflated death statistics to support Covid vaccine approvals
A note before I dive in: The cyclical nature of the references to child Covid deaths between Pfizer, the FDA, and CDC is a little hard to keep track of. When Pfizer was referencing these “deaths” in their reports that they submitted to the FDA, they are usually citing CDC’s own data. Then after the FDA would authorize the shots, in turn, the CDC would reference Pfizer’s report or EUA applications (which was usually CDC’s own flawed data) ,NOT correct or adjust the data, and the cycle continues. For more detail on the heart of THAT issue, see’s work here. This is the root of the issue- bad data. There’s a lot more to unpack in that subject but suffice to say the best way to account for deaths is to leverage the data source that actuaries use: CDC Wonder, which is based on death certificate data. Although it’s also imperfect and not always straightforward, it does allow us to cut down the numbers to a more realistic number- by only including deaths that could possible ever logically have anything to do with Covid. However, even then we will see that there is stuff grouped in that does not belong.
The purpose of this post is to be a record of the critical decision points made by health agencies, justified by data supplied by Pfizer, and show how inaccurate it was. None of this is new information, as anyone familiar with the way we were counting Covid deaths, especially among children, understood everything we were doing was unprecedented.
This post is not exhaustive, as there are many cases where our 3 letter health agencies were fast and loose with these stats, but here are a few very important events where massively inflated death statistics were used to influence major decision points for the three following age groups: 0-4, 5-11, and 12-15. I have built a dashboard (link at end for paid subscribers) where you can interact and browse all of this data easily for yourself.
NOTE: this data is from 2020 and 2021. (2022 data is still being collected, as it takes time to process death certificates).
CDC ACIP Meeting for for the recommendation to use the Pfizer EUA Vaccine in Age 12-15:
“As of May 10, 2021, there were 127 COVID-19-associated deaths among children and adolescents 12-17 years of age”
First of all, notice how they included deaths from ages 12-17, rather than age 12-15? 12-15 was the actual age group of the relevant question at hand for this meeting, yet they lumped in a completely different age group.
