The reason we built OpenVAERS in part is due to the difficulty in correctly using the Wonder interface. Without understanding the underlying data tables it is hard to get an accurate number out of the system. Here is how you can replicate our death number for COVID. Use the following settings on the Wonder request form:

Step 1. Group By SEX

Step 2. Select All Symptoms (default)

Step 3. Covid 19 (Covid19 Vaccine)

Step 4. ALL LOCATIONS, All Ages, All Genders

Step 5. Event Category: Death (leave the rest alone)
