Dr John Campbell, retired nurse educator and Covid data YouTuber, features the West Australian Vaccine Safety Surveillance 2021 report in a new video.
“I was completely appalled by this report,” he says.
Dr Campbell says he found preparing this analysis quite uncomfortable.
“If I had known prior to being vaccinated in 2021 myself, there is no way I would have accepted this vaccine. These rates of adverse reactions for me, for my personal risk, are just way too high, and for any other sensible thinking person. Quite unacceptable levels.”
Dr Campbell’s analysis is a good high-level summary of what is found in the report – most shockingly, a 24x increase in the rate of Covid vaccine adverse event reporting (per 100,000 doses) compared to all other vaccines combined.
Dr Campbell became popular for his explanatory videos early in the pandemic, particularly regarding Covid vaccines. He initially believed the vaccines were safe and effective. Over the past two years, viewers have watched in real time as Dr Campbell has ‘followed the science’ all the way from ‘safe and effective’ to “Time to pause covid mass vaccination.”
Dr Campbell commends the WA Government for providing such a thorough report, and I agree. That said, it got no press here in WA, and the Health Department media team refused to answer my stickier questions. They also sent me an intimidating email after I published several articles on the report, saying, “DOH public health experts have raised concerns regarding some of your assertions.” However, they declined to detail the nature of concerns raised by the faceless ‘experts.’
My in depth analysis of the report, published in March of this year, is below. It covers most of what’s in the video above, but in more depth, and with some additional contextual information. Click here to read my analysis.
West Australian government finally releases 2021 vaccine safety data: vaccines have been pulled from the market for far less than this
The full implications of this scandal are now apparent for the world to see, as is the role of Australian politicians, bureaucrats and media personnel.
Here are the opening paragraphs.
WA Gov has offered no reason for why they sat on this report for so long before publishing it, but the attitude of Minister for Health, Amber-Jade Sanderson gives a clue. When petitioned last year by thousands of West Australians to publicly release the health advice on which WA Gov based their extreme pandemic policies, Sanderson not only refused to make the health advice freely available, but countered that in asking for transparency from the government, petitioners were somehow seeking to, “undermine the Government’s efforts to keep Western Australians safe.” So much for the Labor government’s much touted promise of ‘gold standard transparency.’
Unique to WA vaccine safety surveillance data from 2021 is the fact that vaccine effects can be easily differentiated from Covid infection effects. There was almost no Covid in WA in 2021, due to WA’s extreme zero covid policies.
In contrast, almost four million doses of Covid vaccination were administered to the population during 2021.
The Covid jab rollout began on 22 February 2021 in Western Australia. You can see when it began.
A shorter summary article I wrote for Umbrella News went bonkers viral. This article focuses on the fact that WA was the perfect test group for Covid vaccines in the real world. We had almost no Covid in the state in 2021, so our vaccine safety data from this year is unconfounded by Covid infections.

And The Highwire also did a segment featuring my Umbrella article and the WA vaccine safety report (20 mins). Click here to watch.
And just to reemphasise, here is John Campbell’s YouTube video again. He has been on top of this evolving scandal from the beginning, and his channel is highly recommended.
