Piers Corbyn makes misleading claims about vaccine deaths – Full Fact


4 June 2021

What was claimed

Covid-19 vaccines have caused 859,481 adverse reactions.

Our verdict

Slightly fewer adverse reactions have been reported but it doesn’t mean they have been caused by the vaccine. The vast majority are normal and clear up within a few days.

What was claimed

Covid-19 vaccines have caused 1,213 deaths.

Our verdict

False. This is the number of deaths within seven days of vaccination reported through the Yellow Card scheme, but this does not mean the vaccines caused these deaths.
