How to Self Report a Vaccine Related Adverse Event to Health Canada

New step-by-step guide published by the Canadian Covid Care Alliance

The Canadian Covid Care Alliance has just published a step-by-step video guide on how to self-report vaccine-related adverse events to Health Canada.

It is a dark and upsetting reality that with each passing day, more and more Canadians are succumbing to new or worsening illnesses and injuries for which they have no reasonable explanation. Of course, correlation is not causation. However, because millions of Canadians received an experimental medicine with known safety risks following a highly problematic clinical trial, it is increasingly necessary to look closely and swiftly at any such unexpected malady as a possible adverse event.

Unfortunately, Health Canada made the adverse event reporting process unacceptably difficult between December 2020 and February 2023. We at the Canadian Covid Care Alliance felt it was time that somebody made clear to the general public that you can, indeed, tell Health Canada about your potential adverse event following receipt of a COVID-19 vaccine,1 and you are not expected or required to go through your doctor.

I’m proud to share that I narrated the video, which was edited by the same video production team behind the CCCA’s “More Harm than Good” video, which currently stands at 3.75 million views since its release in late 2021.

Since that initial analysis of Pfizer’s own Phase III clinical trial data (which revealed that, well, the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine products cause far more harm than good), my team and I have learned a great deal about how Canada’s pharmacovigilance systems work—or, rather, how they appear to have been designed to fail. For a deep dive on this topic, and for an in-depth explanation of the adverse event reporting system highlighted in our newly-published video guide, I highly recommend reading my previous article titled “Government of Canada Misled Canadians on COVID-19 Adverse Event Reporting”.

While we have a daunting amount of healing to do as individuals and as a country, the process begins by extending a hand of help. If you know somebody who may want to let Health Canada know about their potential adverse event, please send this video to them.
