Posts misrepresent European data on Covid-19 vaccines deaths

Social media posts share a video of a Swiss-based researcher who claims that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has "linked" Covid-19 vaccines to 18,000 deaths. This is false; a report of a fatality following vaccination in the EMA's database is not proof of a tie between the two,and though serious side effects following vaccination have been recorded, they remain rare, according to the health agency.
