- The Turning Point USA founder speculated that more people have died after getting the covid-19 vaccine than have actually died from covid-19 itself.
- Kirk has stated that he will not get vaccinated after seeing the reports on VAERS of people dying after receiving the covid-19 vaccines.
- “If VAERS is off by 99 percent, that would mean 1.2 million people died after getting the vaccine…” Kirk cited on his radio show.

“Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk irresponsibly speculated that more people have died after getting the covid-19 vaccine than have died from covid-19 itself.
Kirk has said he will not get vaccinated, and on his show Wednesday he talked about the number on VAERS of reports of people dying after receiving the covid-19 vaccines.
Presumably going off tweets from Alex Berenson, Kirk actually suggested that over one million people died after getting the vaccine, saying, “If VAERS is off by 99 percent, that would mean 1.2 million people died after getting the vaccine… If VAERS is only calculating 10 percent, that means 123,000 people died.”
“I’m not saying that’s true,” he continued. “I’m saying that according to how we calculate VAERS by the independent study that was administered, this could be true.”
He went on to attack Senator Mitch McConnell and other political leaders for “peddling” the vaccine.
The CDC’s VAERS website says, “VAERS accepts and analyzes reports of possible health problems—also called “adverse events”—after vaccination. 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.”
An actual medical expert — Dr. Pradheep J. Shanker, a radiologist who writes about health in the National Review — spoke with Mediaite in May after similar commentary from Tucker Carlson on VAERS to explain…”
