First, there is no correlation between COVID-19 vaccines and miscarriages, research claims.
Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System data “cannot be used to determine if a vaccine caused or contributed to an adverse event or illness,” the Department of Health and Human Services declared in a report.
Defending the Republic, an organization of lawyer Sidney Powell, originally published the image on Instagram.
The Instagram post had wrongly interpreted data from the OpenVAERS website.
As a private organization, OpenVAERS had cited 2,508 miscarriages caused by an experimental COVID ‘vaccine.’
This was mentioned on the OpenVAERS website, its data was sourced from VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System).

VAERS is a system managed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Reports of adverse events from health care providers, vaccine manufacturers, and the public are usually submitted to VAERS.
On Oct. 8, VAERS reported receiving 2,508 reports of miscarriages linked to the COVID-19 vaccine.
In the VAERS report, it is stated that its report “cannot be used to determine if a vaccine caused or contributed to an adverse event or illness.”
The VAERS also states that the reports “may contain information that is incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental, or unverifiable.”
“VAERS is not designed to determine if a vaccine caused or contributed to an adverse event,” the CDC states on its website.
“A report to VAERS does not mean the vaccine caused the event.”
There has been no evidence that the COVID-19 vaccine causes miscarriages even as several misconceptions drive this.
While OpenVAERS didn’t make any direct claim that vaccines caused these miscarriages, research has not shown COVID-19 vaccines to cause miscarriages.
In a report published in the New England Journal of Medicine on Oct. 14, researchers with the CDC and National Institutes of Health concluded that spontaneous abortion rates were no higher following mRNA COVID-19 vaccinations before or during pregnancy than in general.
On Oct. 20, the NEJM published another article about a study conducted by Norwegians, Americans, and Canadians that showed “no evidence of an increased risk for early pregnancy loss after Covid-19 vaccination.”
In September, a study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association about the use of the COVID-19 vaccine for pregnant women and spontaneous abortion.
It found that among 13,160 women identified as having miscarried, the “odds of COVID-19 vaccine exposure were not increased in the prior 28 days compared with women with ongoing pregnancies.”
“Results from published studies suggest that there is no increased risk of first-trimester loss in patients who receive any of the three vaccines currently approved for emergency use authorization,” according to an article published on the website of Johns Hopkins Medicine.
“These include the Pfizer, Moderna, and the Johnson & Johnson vaccines.”
Pregnant individuals should get vaccinated against COVID-19, according to the recommendations of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG).
In addition, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) states that “none of the COVID-19 vaccines available for use under emergency use authorization or U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) license causes infertility or spontaneous abortion.”
The COVID-19 vaccines produced by Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, and Pfizer-BioNTech “have been thoroughly tested and found to be safe and effective in preventing severe COVID-19,” according to Johns Hopkins Medicine.

The Pfizer is for people age 16 and older.
Lately, the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccination has received FDA approval, and the FDA has also authorized the use of the other two vaccines in the U.S.
Powell’s law office and Defending the Public were contacted several times for responses after their claim was proved false.
In spite of all effort, no response was received.
