Was it vaccine related? That’s what the math says. Here’s my calculation.
by Steve Kirsch
The VAERS data shows that Ramsay Hunt Syndrome (RHS) is 160 times more likely after a COVID vaccination than for all the other vaccines combined in any given year. And if you exclude the anthrax vaccine from that comparison, the likelihood is simply too high to calculate (0 cases in 32 years).
So the COVID vaccine should definitely be considered as a possible cause of this rare disease.
I show below that the estimated rate of RHS after COVID vaccination is 338 cases per 100,000. The medical literature says it occurs naturally in 5 cases per 100,000. Therefore, it is 99% likely that Justin’s RHS was caused by the vaccine, and only a 1% chance that he got “unlucky.”
The mainstream press isn’t doing its job if they don’t report this (which they won’t).
I was just finishing a slide in my Elephant deck scolding Jonathan Jarry for ridiculing my comments about how shingles is exacerbated by the COVID vaccines (search for Jarry in the deck).
I take a break and I check my email and it is lit up with messages from my followers about Justin Bieber per this story:

Here’s one of the messages:
Seems eerily similar to a vaccine related shingles activation, amongst other things. All these odd ones are popping up in what seemingly is a more than normal fashion, by a fair bit. We even have new problems, like “Sudden Adult Death Syndrome” which I am reading about all of the sudden. Hmmm….
This is the bad news for Justin Bieber
Compared with Bell’s palsy (facial paralysis without rash), patients with Ramsay Hunt syndrome often have more severe paralysis at onset and are less likely to recover completely.
Bieber’s wife was also likely vaccine injured
For example, see this tweet about his 26-year-old wife who had a mini-stroke after she was vaccinated. A lot of young people getting strokes nowadays… the one thing they have in common: they’ve all been vaccinated.
What does VAERS say about this?
First, here’s what the slide I wrote says about shingles says:
But according to Jonathan Jarry, the “Pseudoscience Buster” at McGill, I am a misinformation spreader for pointing out the high rate of shingles recurrence as acknowledged in the peer-reviewed literature.
In my defense, according to VAERS, there were 54 shingles reports following the COVID vaccines in the US and associated with death. There were 0 cases in 2020 for all vaccines combined. 54/0 is infinity which is “off the charts” for most charts I’m aware of.
But Bieber was diagnosed with RHS.
As all misinformation spreaders know, the MedDRA search term to use for RHS is the more cool-sounding “Herpes zoster oticus.”
Let’s search all of VAERS (all vaccines over 32 years):
Now, let’s limit our search to just the COVID vaccines:
So I could find only one case in VAERS where this happened for any vaccine in the 32-year history of VAERS for anyone between 20 and 30 years old, and there were 5 cases for the COVID vaccines which have only been available to someone Justin’s age for about a year. So that’s a 32*5=160X higher incidence rate per year. So we are comparing the COVID vaccines vs all other vaccines combined. If we compared the relative rates vs. a specific vaccine like the flu vaccine, it’s infinitely more likely since the sole case in VAERS was a military service member who got both the flu vaccine and the anthrax vaccine. Since there are no other cases reported for the flu vaccine, the most likely cause was the anthrax vaccine.
Justin likely didn’t get the anthrax vaccine, so I’d suspect the COVID vaccine.
Note that the counts are only 5 cases because of the age restriction. But due to the under-reporting factor in VAERS, there are likely around 500 people just like Justin ages 20 to 30, who suffer from the same thing.
VAERS calculation of overall incidence rate
If we do a full VAERS query without the age restriction, we find there are 66 cases of RHS. But we learned from my recent disability article (that I just wrote yesterday) that the URF is 128 for permanent disabilities. 66*128 = 8,448 estimated incidence rate. Since we’ve vaccinated 250M people, that’s a rate of 8448/250*10= 338 per 100,000 people-years. The medical literature says the natural rate is 5 per 100,000 people-years.
So there’s a 99% chance that it was the vaccine that caused his RHS. That’s what the math says.
If he has Bell’s Palsy, then it is less certain. Bell’s has a .5% incidence rate, so that is 500 per 100,000 compared to 30 per 100,000 which gives us a 94% certainty it was the vaccine.
But the false narrative says the vaccines are “safe and effective.”
Support from the scientific literature (two papers)
I’m not the only one who found the link.
The press simply does not do their homework.
There are at least two articles in the peer-reviewed scientific literature pointing out the connection.
Here it is in the BMJ:
To fact checkers
For all the “fact checkers” who are going to review this, please mention that my conclusions are supported in the peer-reviewed scientific literature that the COVID vaccines can cause RHS. Then show us the CORRECT VAERS calculation. OK? And explain in your “fact check” that you never called me. If you do call me, I’m going to record the call. Just mention that you didn’t want to be recorded so you didn’t call me. That would be the honest thing to do.
To Justin Bieber’s fans
Please don’t attack me. I’m not the enemy. I’m just telling you what the data and the peer-reviewed medical literature says. You are welcome to believe anything you want.
Justin Bieber is 99% likely another victim of the COVID vaccines. The mainstream media will never admit this because it would be counter to the “safe and effective” narrative.
Bieber’s doctors will never acknowledge the connection either, so he’ll never get the proper treatment he needs. It’s tragic.
The COVID vaccines are not recommended for anyone.
Everyone should take a look at my Elephant deck before considering taking the jab.
