Re: the under-reporting & risks of covid vaccine injury in Germany
English Translation of the Health insurance company BKK letter to the Paul Erlich Institute re: Vaccine AR under-reporting (as reported in the Berliner Zeitung Feb 24, 2022)
The health insurance company BKK has evaluated millions of insured data. According to this, the stated case numbers of the Paul-Ehrlich-Institute on vaccination consequences are too low.
A major German health insurer has recorded figures on side effects of Covid vaccines. It said the result was “a significant alarm signal.” According to BKK ProVita, the number of side effects is many times higher than those officially announced by the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI).
In a letter to the PEI (available to the Berliner Zeitung – read in German), it says: “In our eyes, there is a considerable under-reporting of vaccination side effects.” The board of BKK ProVita, Andreas Schöfbeck, told the world: “According to our calculations, we consider 400,000 doctor visits of our insured due to vaccination complications to date realistic.”
The health insurance company has had the data of millions of insured persons of the BKK group analyzed. Based on the evaluated data, Schöfbeck also concludes that “danger to human life cannot be ruled out.” Schöfbeck has now written a letter to Prof. Dr. Klaus Cichutek, the president of the Paul Ehrlich Institute. The letter also went to the GKV-Spitzenverband, the Federal Medical Association, the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians, the Standing Vaccination Commission and the BKK Dachverband. The Berliner Zeitung publishes the letter with the headline “Heftiges Warnsignal bei codierten Impfnebenwirkungen nach Corona Impfung” in its wording.
“Dear Prof. Dr. Cichutek, The Paul Ehrlich Institute has announced via press release that 244,576 suspected cases for vaccination adverse events after Corona vaccination were reported for the calendar year 2021. The data available to our institution give us reason to believe that there is a very significant under-reporting of suspected cases for vaccination adverse events after Corona vaccination. I am enclosing an evaluation of this in my letter.
The data basis for our evaluation is physician billing data. Our sample is from the anonymized data set of the company health insurance funds. The sample comprises 10,937,716 insured persons. So far, we have the physicians’ billing data for the first half of 2021 and approximately half for the third quarter of 2021. Our query includes valid ICD codes for vaccination adverse events. This analysis has shown, although we do not yet have the complete data for 2021, that based on the available figures we now already assume 216,695 treated cases of vaccine adverse events after Corona vaccination from this sample.
If these numbers are extrapolated to the entire year and to the population in Germany, probably 2.5-3 million people in Germany have received medical treatment for vaccination side effects after Corona vaccination. We regard this as a considerable alarm signal that must be taken into account in the further use of vaccines. In our view, the figures can be validated relatively easily and also in the short term by asking the other types of health insurance funds (AOKs, substitute health insurance funds, etc.) for a corresponding evaluation of the data available to them. Extrapolated to the number of vaccinated people in Germany, this means that approximately 4-5 percent of vaccinated people received medical treatment for vaccination side effects.
In our view, there is a considerable under-reporting of vaccination side effects. It is an important concern to identify the causes for this in the short term. Our first assumption is that, since no compensation is paid for reporting vaccine adverse events, reporting to the Paul Ehrlich Institute is often not done because of the great expense involved. Physicians have reported to us that reporting a suspected vaccine adverse event takes about half an hour. This means that 3 million suspected cases of vaccine adverse events require about 1.5 million working hours of physicians. That would be almost the annual workload of 1,000 physicians. This should be clarified in the same short term.
A copy of this letter will therefore also be sent to the German Medical Association and the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians. The GKV-Spitzenverband will also receive a copy of this letter with the request to obtain corresponding data analyses from all health insurance companies.
Since danger to human life cannot be ruled out, we request that you provide feedback on the measures initiated by 6 p.m. on February 22, 2022.
