The Commons on St. Anthony nursing home is a 300-bed facility located in Auburn, New York. Several dozen coronavirus (COVID-19) related deaths were reported to have occurred there. According to ronpaulinstitute.org, the deaths started occurring only after medical personnel began vaccinating the elderly nursing home residents. NOI Research Group posted information about the deaths via twitter @NOIResearch.
On December 22, 2020 the nursing home began administering the COVID-19 vaccinations to its elderly residents. 193 residents at the nursing home received the COVID-19 vaccine. The deaths began occurring approximately seven days after the nursing home began giving the residents the COVID-19 vaccinations. Since December 29, 2020 there have been 24 elderly residents at The Commons on St. Anthony nursing home confirmed dead from the COVID-19 vaccinations according to James T. Mulder’s article at syracuse.com.
Prior to the vaccinations The Commons on St. Anthony had no reported COVID-19 related deaths according to Mulder’s syracuse.com article. After the deaths began mounting at the nursing home, its COVID-19 vaccination program was temporarily suspended. Prior to suspension of COVID-19 vaccinations, 80 percent of the elderly residents were vaccinated. The nursing home offered the COVID-19 vaccine to staff, but less than half of The Commons on St. Anthony nursing home staff had been vaccinated.
A reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine could prove fatal for the elderly and those with underlying serious medical conditions. Recently in Norway 23 people died after receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine according to a report in Newsbreak.com. Dr. Sigurd Hortemo, Chief Physician at the Norwegian Medicines Agency, said in the press release that common side effects like fever and nausea “may have contributed to a fatal outcome in some frail patients.”. A spokesman for The Commons on St. Anthony nursing home said they plan to resume COVID-19 vaccinations in January 2021.
