Post-Vac-Syndrome Germany is an organization with over 1500 members affected by Post COVID Vaccination Syndrome, which focuses on medical and scientific understanding of these diseases. Our friends at Post-Vac Syndrome Germany have completed a survey of almost 800 of those affected, which we have translated here for an English-speaking audience. In addition to the final analysis, we have also provided the machine translated English PVS Survey.
In addition to research, their group maintains a list of injured stories and a German FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) for the injured who are looking for answers and support.

1. General Information
Surveys completed in full: 777
- Start of survey: 20.02.2022
- End of the survey: 30.06.2022
- Type of survey: online survey, which was shared exclusively in private stakeholder groups as well as in the non-public area of the PVS forum.
- As can also be seen from the questionnaire, only a portion of the questions and data were evaluated. Therefore, further questions can be discussed with the raw data.
Limitations of the results:
- No conclusions can be drawn from the survey about the prevalence of PVS among vaccinated individuals in the population.
- The survey cannot prove causality between symptom occurrence and vaccination.
- If a sufficiently large population is vaccinated, it is also to be expected that vaccinated persons develop certain diseases or symptoms, which only correlate temporally with the vaccination, but whose actual cause does not lie in that vaccination.
- However, the closer the time of vaccination and the occurrence of symptoms are in time, the more likely a causal relationship becomes.
- The respondents indicated that 57.4% developed the symptoms within one week and another 21.4% within 1-2 weeks after vaccination. (4.1.1).
- The temporal proximity between vaccination and complaint onset therefore also strongly suggests a causal relationship! This assumption is further supported by the strongly similar symptoms of the affected persons (cf. 4.2.).
- The medical examination is the responsibility of the Paul Ehrlich Institute, which must evaluate the reported suspected cases in this regard.
- Since the survey was conducted online, it can be assumed that people without Internet affinity are underrepresented in the survey; this could affect older people, for example.
3. Pre-Existing Illnesses
3.1. Pre-existing conditions among respondents
4. Side Effects After 1st Vaccination
4.1. Vaccine Manufacturer
Without comparison to the values of a representative control group, no conclusions can be drawn about the qualitative properties with regard to the side effects of the individual vaccines.
4.1.1. Onset of long-term side effects after 1st vaccination.
4.2. Summary: Symptoms and symptom groups
4.3. Symptom groups in detail
4.3.1. Neurological symptoms
Note on the evaluation of the median minimum duration of symptoms:
This is the median of the respective duration in days. If the response option “until today” was selected, the Indication relates to the date of the survey. The duration is then calculated from the respective vaccination date and the response date. This can thus be both overestimated (side effects do not occur immediately after vaccination) and underestimated (side effects continue even after answering the survey).
This, of course, applies to all symptom groups.
4.3.2. Mobility Symptoms
4.3.3. Cardiovascular symptoms
4.3.4. Eye symptoms
4.3.5. Digestion symptoms
4.3.6. Nephrological symptoms
4.3.7. Psychological symptoms
4.3.8. Respiratory symptoms
4.3.9. Skin symptoms
4.3.10. Immune system symptoms
4.3.11. General conditions
5. Final Questions
5.1. GPCR autoantibodies prevalence
Note: Due to an error in the question, only a partial cohort (n=296) could be included in the analysis of this question after correcting the question. Unfortunately, the n=481 responses collected before correction could not be included in this question. This circumstance results in different n for the subgraphs.
For the first two graphs n = 296 (left) and 47 (right)
5.2. Reporting of side effects
Interpretation example: 67% of the respondents stated that their treating physician did not report the side effects to the appropriate authority. 75.6% indicated that they then carried out the reporting themselves.
5.3. Emergency room stay
Interpretation example: 56% of women reported emergency department visits after vaccination.
5.4. Activity level before 1st vaccination
Interpretation example: 12.4% of women reported that they were very physically active in their occupation, while 48.2% of women reported that they were more likely to have a sedentary/resting occupation.
5.5. Physical activity level before vaccination
Interpretation example: 45.8% of women did light endurance sports several times a week before vaccination.
5.6. Performance limitation after 1st vaccination
Reading example: 33.5% of women describe themselves as “Heavily limited” in their participation in social life after vaccination. 28.6% even as “unable”.

I’m very curious if anyone with diabetic neuropathy has sad anything about increased discomfort or swelling in the lower extremities??? And, what should a person born with asthma along with type 2 diabetes do when it comes to additional booster shots?? I’m deathly afraid of catching Covid19. I’m also strongly against putting any more of that poison in my system…..
Please give me advice. Thanks
Your genetics (check your family), initial viral load, physical condition, comorbidities determines how you respond to any infection. What you CAN do is give your immune system what it NEEDS to fend off infections. Vitamins, minerals, supplements listed elsewhere. Includes reducing self-induced stress.
I have neuropathic feet pain, pre-diabetic, 72 year old male, overweight.
After 2.5 years of going about life normally (sans mask), I finally tested positive. Fatigue, dry cough for three days. Chest muscles/tendons painful during coughing, related to my three jabs.
