Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Tucker Carlson's Wild Vaccine Speculation Draws Contempt”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Tucker Carlson opened Wednesday night’s program with what many found to be dangerous speculation on the unknown health risks associated with taking the Covid-19 vaccine.

The Fox News host did not come out and explicitly say that his viewers should not take the vaccine; in fact, he congratulated those who already had. But he did raise specious concerns about the vaccination in a manner that could have deadly results for anyone looking for reasons to avoid vaccination.

His show opened with a segment focused on Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), which is a public health tracking system used to identify trends in reactions to the various Covid-19 vaccines. Carlson used it, however, to warn of an “apparent death rate from the coronavirus vaccines.”

Carlson did hedge his warnings about the vaccine with an odd disclaimer. “Vaccines are not dangerous,” he said, adding  “that’s not a guess, we know that pretty conclusively from the official numbers.”

The CDC’s web page about VAERS says, “As an early warning system, VAERS cannot prove that a vaccine caused a problem. Specifically, a report to VAERS does not mean that a vaccine caused an adverse event. But VAERS can give CDC and FDA important information. If it looks as though a vaccine might be causing a problem, FDA and CDC will investigate further and take action if needed.”
