Autopsies reveal that 93 percent of post-vaccination deaths are caused by COVID-19 vaccines.

A non-peer-reviewed paper is cited to show vaccinations cause deaths. There is no direct clinical evidence linking COVID-19 vaccines to deaths.

A report published on the conspiracy website The Expose cited a non-peer-reviewed research paper showing that COVID-19 vaccines caused 93 percent of post-vaccination deaths. The paper was published on the Doctors for COVID Ethics website, known for making several unfounded and misrepresented claims about COVID-19 vaccines.

One of the coauthors of the non-peer-reviewed research paper, Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, has been called out by many reputed news outlets and medical experts for spreading misinformation on COVID-19 and the vaccine against the virus.

A clinical analysis published by the U.S. National Institute of Health studied the autopsy results of eighteen deceased vaccinated individuals between March 11, 2021, and June 9, 2021. The study showed that in at least 13 cases, postmortem analysis linked the cause of death to multiple pre-existing conditions and that there was no direct link to the vaccinations. In another four cases, Vaccine-Induced Immune Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia was the likely cause of death. This study also recommended that autopsy and histopathological examinations along with other additional laboratory examinations need to be conducted to arrive at a possible causal relationship between vaccines and death.

Furthermore, no peer-reviewed studies or other clinical analysis have confirmed a direct relationship between the deaths of people vaccinated against COVID-19 and the vaccines. Reuters has quoted multiple experts pointing out several major flaws in the research paper published on the website. This interpretation indicates that the non-peer-reviewed study might not get approved by the larger medical community. Thus it is evident that claims of vaccines resulting in the death of most vaccinated people are clinically incorrect and are being propagated by anti-vaxxers to discredit the COVID-19 vaccines.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19, including symptoms, prevention, and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organization or your national healthcare authority.
