FDA Withholding Autopsy Results on People Who Died After Getting Covid Vaccines

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is refusing to release the results of autopsies conducted on people who died after getting COVID-19 vaccines.

The FDA says it is barred from releasing medical files, but a drug safety advocate says that it could release the autopsies with personal information redacted.

The refusal was issued to The Epoch Times, which submitted a Freedom of Information Act for all autopsy reports obtained by the FDA concerning any deaths reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System following COVID-19 vaccination.

Reports are lodged with the system when a person experiences an adverse event, or a health issue, after receiving a vaccine. The FDA and other agencies are tasked with investigating the reports. Authorities request and review medical records to vet the reports, including autopsies.

The FDA declined to release any reports, even redacted copies.

The FDA cited federal law, which enables agencies to withhold information if the agency “reasonably foresees that disclosure would harm an interest protected by an exemption,” with the exemption being “personnel and medical files and similar files the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.”

Federal regulations also bar the release of “personnel, medical and similar files the disclosure of which constitutes a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.”

The Epoch Times has appealed the denial, in addition to the recent denial of results of data analysis of VAERS reports.

‘Easily Be Redacted’

Kim Witczak, a drug safety advocate who advises the FDA as part of the Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Committee, said that the reports could be released with personal information blacked out.

“The personal information could easily be redacted without losing the potential learnings from [the] autopsy,” Witczak told The Epoch Times via email.

People make the choice to submit autopsy results to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, Witczak noted.

“If someone submits their experience to VAERS they want and expect to have it investigated by the FDA. This includes autopsy reports,” she said.

Autopsies are examinations of deceased persons performed to determine the cause of death.

“Autopsies can be an important part of postmortem analysis and should be done especially with increased deaths following COVID-19 vaccination,” Witczak said.

FDA Responds

An FDA spokesperson noted that deaths following COVID-19 vaccination are rare, citing the number of reports made to VAERS.

As of Sept. 14, 16,516 reports of death following COVID-19 vaccination have been reported. Approximately 616 million doses have been administered in the United States through September.

The spokesperson declined to say whether the FDA would ever release the autopsy results, but pointed to a paper authored by researchers with the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The paper, which has not been peer reviewed, analyzed the approximately 9,800 reports of death to VAERS following COVID-19 vaccination lodged from Dec. 14, 2020, to Nov. 17, 2021. Researchers found that reporting rates were lower than the expected all-cause mortality rates.

“Trends in reporting rates reflected known trends in background mortality rates. These findings do not suggest an association between vaccination and overall increased mortality,” the researchers wrote.

The researchers noted that prior studies have found that adverse events reported to VAERS are an undercount of the true number of events.

    The FDA does NOT want an accurate account of all the people they MURDERED.

    I am not a lawyer, but if you Google “Health Information of Deceased Individuals”, it sounds like the dead person’s family can release information from HIPAA rules.

    “During the 50-year period of protection, the personal representative of the decedent (i.e., the person under applicable law with authority to act on behalf of the decedent or the decedent’s estate) has the ability to exercise the rights under the Privacy Rule with regard to the decedent’s health information, such as authorizing certain uses and disclosures of, and gaining access to, the information.”

    Event 201 and Operation Lockstep were plans to create a pandemic, offer a ‘solution’ to it that would allow you to be controlled, while having you handing them over your sovereignty without you knowing it.
    Which is what the dems want. Remember, biden saying that The Constitution for America is just a piece of paper that needs to be done away with? Then there’s God obama saying, at a speech, that humans are too stupid to take care of their own lives, and that handing their sovereignty over to them is the best thing to do.
    God bill gates and others who want to depopulate the world because, in their opinion, that’s what is needed because the Earth can’t continue to support the current population. Ain’t it funny how a computer nerd came up with the medical solution. Now, his solution is killing people. Coincidence? They also figured that by using shots, they could kill more people without people catching on to their plan.
    Then god klaus schwab (WEF) who wants technology to be used to make your life easier. Like a computer chip in you, so you wouldn’t have to carry cash, and would be able to unlock doors by tapping your hand on something. Things like that.
    1) Read Event 201 and Lockstep. You’ll find that you have what is and has happened with the covid-19 pandemic.
    2) The SARS-CoV-2 virus, that causes covid-19, does NOT exist. The report on the calibrating of the PCR test, clearly says that they did NOT have the SARS-CoV-2 virus and had to use something similar to replicate a positive covid test.
    3) People are dying in alarming numbers since AFTER the shots came out. It’s like the world is being depopulated.
    4) Wire like, and technology type things are being found in people who have died from the shots.
    5) There’s a CCP video where they say once the American army is vaxxed, they will win. I think, they mean that they will have the advantage over American troops, because our troops will be too sick to fight them.
    Coincidences? So far, ALL the conspiracies about covid have come true. Welcome to World War 3.

    VAERS the government website reflects less than 1% of the actual numbers of deaths and injuries because most if not all are not reported! I heard that a doctor was trying to report injuries to his patient only for the VAERS to kick it out of their system!
