Trending social media posts refer to a lawsuit against the federal government that alleges 45,000 people died over a period of three days after receiving the COVID-19 shot. The posts claim, without evidence, that the federal government is covering up these deaths in order to roll out mandatory vaccines for children. The lawsuit is purportedly based on self-reported and unconfirmed VAERS data, but the numbers do not match up with VAERS reports. Notably, the lawsuit was filed by America’s Frontline Doctors, a group that has been shown to spread misinformation throughout the pandemic. The claims made in the group’s motion, which are not backed by any evidence, are meant to further discourage people from getting vaccinated.
