Gadawodd Bartholomeus Lakeman (Ataliwyd y cyfrif) anodiad ()

Public Health Scotland, as of 11 June 2021, report that 5,522 people have died within 28 days of receiving a COVID-19 injection. 1,877 deaths have been due to the Pfizer mRNA-, 3,643 deaths due to the AstraZeneca viral vector-, and 2 deaths have been due to the Moderna mRNA- jab. This equates to an average of 920 deaths occurring every month due to the Covid-19 vaccines in Scotland. Outnumbering 20 x the average number (54) of people who die with Covid-19 in Scotland.
The total population of Scotland is about 5.5 million people of which about 3 million are vaccinated; of which ±1 in 20,000 people (±0.02%) died. According to Eudravigilance is the vaccine % Fatality to cases 2.6% and the risk of dying from a Covid vaccine injection is more than 0.05%: ±1 in 5,000
Using the same percentages as the statistics supplied by PHS, based on the population of the UK, that would equate to about 57,470 deaths in the UK within 28 days of being injected with the COVID-19 shot; yet if extrapolated from Eudravigilance it could be 100,000.
