Australia’s Drug Regulator Covered Up Child Vaccine Deaths to ‘Maintain Public Confidence’

Australia’s drug regulator has been caught covering up the number of children who died after receiving Covid vaccines, according to reports.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), Australia’s equivalent to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), kept the deaths hidden to “maintain public confidence” in the vaccines, it has been revealed.

The hidden deaths include two children, seven and nine years old, who both suffered fatal cardiac arrests.

The TGA assessed that those child deaths were causally linked to Covid vaccination.

The revelations come in documents obtained under a Freedom of Information (FOI) request by Dr. Melissa McCann.

Dr. McCann shared the shocking revelation in her address at the Covid Vaccine Conference, according to investigative reporter .

The event was hosted by Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party over the weekend in Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney.

The event featured leading ICU physician Dr. Pierre Kory, cardiologist and epidemiologist Dr. Peter McCullough, and McCullough’s collaborator, author John Leake.

Addressing sold-out crowds, Dr. McCann shared the extraordinary lengths she had to go to extract causality assessment documents relating to the TGA’s investigation of reported deaths after Covid vaccination.

The documents were obtained under FOI request in a process that took six months.

Dr. McCann lodged the request after seeing an unexpectedly high number of patients coming through her clinic experiencing adverse events after immunization (AEFIs).

She also noticed a high number of serious AEFI reports in the DAEN database, including the reported death of a 14-year-old in October 2021.

In her original FOI request, Dr. McCann requested causality assessments for all of the reported deaths in the DAEN database.

This request was denied due to the large scope, and in negotiation with the TGA, Dr. McCann agreed to revise the request down to the 11 documents that were eventually handed over.

Of which, ten related to DAEN death reports.

When the documents were finally provided to Dr. McCann in July 2022, she was dismayed to find that there were multiple reports that the TGA had assessed as causally linked to Covid vaccination, but, with the exception of one death, had not been reported in the TGA’s regular Safety Reports.

Following is a list of deaths that the TGA’s own reports assessed as causally linked to Covid vaccination:

  • 21-year-old female
    Case 729139, Document 1
    Moderna booster. Fatal AEFIs, including myocarditis, cardiac arrest, renal impairment, femoral artery embolism, spinal cord infarction.
    Assessment outcome: “Causal”
    * Initially determined as “unclassifiable”. VSIG (FOI 4049 Doc 5) updated the assessment outcome to “causal”.
  • 9-year-old
    Case 724023, Document 2
    Pfizer vaccination. Fatal AEFI, cardiac arrest.
    Assessment outcome: “Causality assessment outcome”
  • 24-year-old female
    Case 718277, Document 3
    Pfizer vaccination. Fatal AEFI, cardiac arrest.
    Assessment outcome: “Causality”
  • 7-year-old male
    Case 719838, Document 5
    Pfizer vaccination. Fatal AEFI, cardiac arrest.
    Assessment outcome: “Causality”
  • 21-year-old male
    Case 644148, Document 6
    Pfizer vaccination. Fatal AEFI.
    Assessment outcome: “? causality”

Of the above five listed deaths, only the first (21-year-old female, case 729139) has been published in the TGA Safety Reports, having been added on September 13 2022.

The reported deaths are listed in DAEN, but the causality assessment is not visible to the public.

Australians have been falsely and misleadingly advised by the TGA and official health representatives that out of 973 reported deaths, only 14 have been assessed as being causally linked to the Covid vaccines (13 following Astra Zeneca, one following Moderna).

The causality assessment reports released under FOI prove this statement to be a lie.

The November 2022 TGA Safety Report states that, “There have been no deaths in children or adolescents determined to be linked to COVID-19 vaccination.”

However, the assessment reports indicating the causal role of the Pfizer vaccine in the cases of the seven and nine-year-old children were released to Dr. McCann in July 2022.

The causality assessment reports prove this statement also to be a lie.

On reading the causality assessments provided to her under the FOI, Dr. McCann felt both shocked and confused.

“Why has this information not been provided to health professionals and the public who are making consent decisions?” Dr. McCann told Dystopian Down Under.

“Children are continuing to be vaccinated and this is something that parents deserve to be able to weigh up.”

It gets worse. Dr. McCann was surprised to find that documents 1-10 out of a total of 11 documents from the FOI had not been uploaded to the TGA’s public disclosure log, per regular protocol.

She emailed the TGA to query why documents 1-10 had been withheld from the disclosure log and was advised, in a communication on August 24, 2022:

The decision maker for this request decided not to publish documents 1-10 pursuant to section 11c(1)(a) of the FOI Act as they contain sensitive personal information about deceased persons.

As you would appreciate, consultation with the families of the deceased was not considered appropriate, and, as such, consultation was not undertaken with those families. Further, the decision maker determined that disclosure of the documents could undermine public confidence and reduce the willingness of the public to report adverse events to the TGA. (emphasis added)

The TGA seems to have assumed that families of the deceased will not want to hear from them.

On the contrary, Deb, mother of 21-year-old Natalie (case 729139), told Jab Injuries Australia that the lack of contact from the TGA was, “disgraceful treatment of a grieving mother who could have made a meaningful contribution to their investigations.”

Deb says that she has never been contacted by the TGA, and only discovered the causality assessment outcome of her daughter’s death via the TGA’s Safety Report (September 23 2022), which she accessed online.

As for the TGA’s assertion that disclosure of the documents could undermine public confidence, one could very well argue the opposite case.

Perceived lack of transparency drives public distrust.

The last thing the TGA needs is public suspicion that it is burying vaccine deaths.

Full transparency is the only way to create and maintain trust in public health.

Dr. McCann made this argument in a further communication, but the TGA’s decision against uploading documents 1-10 to the public disclosure log was final.

During this time, Dr. McCann, in partnership with other concerned doctors, repeatedly wrote to the Health Ministers and Adjunct Professor John Skerritt of the TGA to advise them of concerns about vaccine safety, and to call for immediate suspension of the vaccine rollout until an urgent review of adverse event reports could be undertaken.

These correspondences were met alternately with silence, obfuscation, or blanket assurances that the TGA was closely monitoring safety, and that the vaccines were safe and effective.

The TGA consistently reports that only 14 of the 973 reported deaths have been causally linked to vaccination.

But the contents of FOI 3727 raise questions:

  • How can the TGA’s statement be true? The TGA’s own causality assessments indicate that there are at least four more deaths that TGA has causally linked to vaccination (two adults, two children) which remain unaccounted for in the official count of 14.
  • How many of the 959 deaths that the TGA implies are not causally linked to vaccination have even been investigated? Are 900 reports ‘in progress’? How many have been determined as ‘not causally linked’? Dr. McCann asked the TGA to state the number of causality assessment reports that had been completed, but her request was denied.

Dr. McCann is concerned about the implications for public health and safety: “If everyone is working on the basis that all of these deaths have been investigated and have been determined as not causally linked, well we can’t be sure that that’s the case.”

For now, Dr. McCann is turning her efforts to a Covid Vaccine Class Action, which is expected to file within the month.

The Class Action has received over 350 expressions of interest, and the number is still growing.

“Hopefully this class action will force some transparency so that there will be more clarity around how adverse events are reviewed, and how many are likely to be linked to the vaccines,” says Dr. McCann.

Yesterday, Federal MP Russell Broadbent added further pressure on the TGA, referring to Dr. McCann’s FOI 3727 in Parliament: “Why has the TGA not responded to doctors who raised these issues with you six months ago, including drawing your attention to those case reports?

“This information is extremely alarming and demands an immediate response from the TGA.”


Sydney lawyer Tony Nikolic, of AFL Solicitors, has represented parents of children who are disputing the necessity of having their child vaccinated against Covid.

Nikolic is now seeing cases related to Covid vaccine injury in children as well.

Mr. Nikolic told Dystopian Down Under:

In circumstances where child deaths and serious long-term injuries are listed on the TGA DAEN database relating to new and unsatisfactorily tested vaccine technologies, there should be no other response than a complete suspension of injections until independent lawyers and medical professionals conduct a thorough investigation, which should consider any civil wrongs, crimes or other wrongdoing associated to the roll out of injections across Australia.
