The Israeli health ministry deleted abusive comments and fake messages related to COVID-19 vaccines and not stuff related to vaccine adverse effects.One of the viral videos posted on The Rumble claimed that the Israeli government suppressed all the adverse event testimonies of vaccinated people to portray COVID-19 vaccines to be safe. The video further claimed that Israeli citizens were not given a platform to report adverse events related to COVID-19 vaccines. The claims made in this video are baseless. On September 30, 2021, the Israeli Ministry of Health published official data on the side effects reported following vaccination against COVID-19 via a Tweet. The post received thousands of comments, and many alleged that some of the comments stating various side effects of COVID-19 vaccines disappeared. However, on October 1, the Ministry clarified that the deleted comments included swearing, abusive comments, lies, fake news. The Ministry of Health further claimed that the actual reason for the deletion of such comments was misrepresented. According to Reuters, Israel's Health Ministry had identified fewer than 10 cases of heart inflammation following a third dose of the Pfizer vaccine among millions administered. In total, out of 3.2 million Israelis who have received the third jab, only 25 people reported severe adverse events, including myocarditis. Meanwhile, the Israeli government has provided a portal to report any adverse event during or after getting the first, second, or third dose of the COVID-19 vaccines. Furthermore, there is no evidence that cases of adverse events caused by COVID-19 vaccines were deliberately suppressed by the government.
