At a glanceClaim:The United Kingdom and the United States are underreporting cases of COVID-19 vaccine's adverse effects, reporting only 1% of the actual number.Rating:FALSEThe facts:The study cited in the video has been previously debunked. Both the UK and the US have monitoring systems for COVID-19 vaccine's adverse effects. These use self-reporting methods in recording cases, which means reported events are not always proven side effects, and some events may have happened anyway, regardless of vaccination. The agencies in charge of these systems say that the actual number of cases may be lower than what is reported.

Agno also instructs her viewers on how to get the real number of cases. “Kung ano iyong amount dito ng mga tao na namatay, i-multiply 'nyo iyon ng 100(Whatever number you see in the reports, multiply it by 100),” she says, referring to the figures released by the Yellow Card Scheme of the UK and the Vaccine Adverse Reporting System (VAERS) of the US.
