  • A new report estimates that COVID-19 vaccine damages in the United States in 2022 led to over 26 million people being injured at a cost of nearly $150 billion to the economy.
  • The stark figures come in a report from Phinance Technologies, a global macro investment firm co-founded by former BlackRock portfolio manager Edward Dowd.
  • “Numbers conservative,” Dowd said in a tweet, adding that the economic damage estimates exclude knock-on effects like lost productivity due to people being present at their jobs but working at reduced capacity.
