V-safe's smartphone app and website, which require users to register, allow vaccinated people to "report their experiences, including serious suspected side effects, directly to the CDC." This feature allows the public health agency to add these reports to "data gathered from clinical trials and other safety monitoring systems."
However, V-safe users who wish to report adverse reactions from the COVID-19 vaccine were greeted with a short message: "Thank you for your participation. Data collection for COVID-19 vaccines concluded on June 30, 2023."
Research scientist and pharmacologist Dr. David Gortler questioned this decision to stop data collection, which was done without prior notice. The former member of the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) senior executive leadership team outlined his criticism in an Aug. 24 piece published by the Brownstone Institute.
He wrote: "Does this mean that the CDC believes that the mRNA COVID-19 injections are so safe, [that] there is no need to monitor adverse event reports any longer? What is the argument against continued monitoring, especially since the V-safe website was already up and paid for?"
"As a drug safety expert, I personally can't cite another example of any agency or manufacturer halting [the] collection of safety data. It seems even worse because mRNA technology is relatively new with long-term manifestations unknown."
As of writing, users who want to report adverse events related to the mRNA vaccines are now redirected to the FDA's Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
Similar to V-safe, VAERS collects vaccine injuries albeit more traditionally. Individuals can submit reports online, manually or via a toll-free number. Numbers from the FDA-run database show that mRNA vaccines have been linked to over 1.5 million adverse event reports – including over 20,000 heart attacks and 27,000 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis in the U.S. alone. (Related: VAERS data: 72% of all reported VACCINE DEATHS are attributed to COVID-19 injections.)
Compared to VAERS, V-safe data isn't made public without context. Instead, it is shared with the public via studies by the public health agency and meetings by the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.
Moreover, V-safe data has been used in different safety analyses. But just like those on the FDA-run safety database, V-safe data can still be susceptible to misinterpretation. Gortler pointed out the fact that VAERS reports, based on several studies and an FDA-funded study, likely represent only a fraction of actual vaccine-related adverse events.
Despite these alarming statistics, the CDC claimed that collecting new safety reports is somehow no longer in the interest of America’s public health. It also hasn't given any clinical or scientific justification for discontinuing the collection of new safety data for actively marketed products like mRNA vaccines. "To this very day, the CDC continues to urge everyone ages six months and older to stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters," Gortler pointed out.
