German Insurer Warns: “More Vaccine Side Effects Than Previously Known”

A board member of German insurer BKK ProVita recently had analyzed the data of millions of insured individuals of the BKK group. The results conclude that the number of COVID-19 “vaccine” side effects is much higher than is being reported by the German federal agency and medical regulatory body, the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI). According to BKK board member Andreas Schöfbeck, the new data is an “alarm signal.” He highlighted on Wednesday that “the figures determined are significant and urgently need to be checked for plausibility.” Noting the importance of the potential findings, he added:

“The numbers that resulted from our analysis are very far away from the publicly announced numbers. It would be ethically wrong not to talk about it.”

Schöfbeck remarked that Munich-based BKK ProVita has been listening carefully since the case management of the health insurance company has been increasingly diagnosed with vaccine side effects. The German publication WELT reports, “the joint data pool of all BKK health insurance funds was used according to the diagnosis codes T88.0 (post-vaccination infection/sepsis post-vaccination), T88.1 (other post-vaccination complications, skin rash post-vaccination), Y59.9 (complications due to Vaccines or biologically active substances) and U12.9 (Adverse reactions to the use of COVID‐19 vaccines).”

The result: From the beginning of 2021 to the middle of the third quarter, 216,695 BKK policyholders were treated for vaccine side effects. Seven thousand six hundred sixty-five (7,665) cases of complications from other vaccines were excluded. The statistics did not include any multiple treatments of insured persons—they calculated one per patient.

By comparison, WELT notes that up to the reporting date of Dec. 31, 2021, PEI “only recorded 61.4 million vaccinated people, [with] 244,576 adverse reaction reports triggered by COVID-19 vaccines.” Schöfbeck remarked that the data he and his team evaluated cover only 10.9 million policyholders and just seven and a half months—yet the vaccination campaign in Germany has been active for 14 months. Schöfbeck explained:

“Our analysis shows that we are dealing with a clear underreporting.” He added, “According to our calculations, we consider 400,000 visits to the doctor by our policyholders because of vaccination complications to be realistic to this day. Extrapolated to the total population, this value would be three million.”
