About the Yellow Card Scheme

To quote the Yellow Card website:

The Yellow Card scheme run by the MHRA and is the UK system for collecting and monitoring information on safety concerns such as suspected side effects or adverse incidents involving medicines and medical devices. The scheme relies on voluntary reporting of suspected side effects or medical device incidents to be reported by health professionals and the public, including patients, carers and parents.
The operative word here is voluntary. There are a lot of people who are not reporting adverse reactions to the scheme. There are also reports of people not being told about the scheme at the time of vaccination. As of 07/07/2021, there have been 1470 reported deaths from the vaccines since 09/12/2020. That's reported deaths. Let that sink in.


The government produces weekly cumulative reports for each of the three vaccines in use (Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Moderna) and one for "brand unspecified", where the vaccine brand wasn't specified at the time of injection.

They are available from two pages:

Weekly Yellow Card reports for each Covid-19 vaccine

I have uploaded the previous reports to a Google Drive:

Each week, I produce a spreadsheet from the Yellow Card death data and compare it to the Covid-19 deaths for the same week, from the government's data:
