Death Certificates Confirm that Apple Valley Village Health Center Experienced a Mass Dying Event in January 2021
Steve Kirsch published a substack recently that contained the explosive allegation that the Apple Valley Village Health Center, also known as the Augustana Health Center of Apple Valley, suffered what could be accurately described as a mass dying event after they vaccinated the residents:
From his substack:
I recently heard an extraordinary story from an employee at Apple Valley Village Health Care Center in Apple Valley, MN.
Before the vaccines, there were 27 cases of COVID and no deaths from COVID. Not a single death.
So things were under control. No need for a vaccine; nobody was dying.
But they had to roll out the vaccine because they were told to.
Here’s what happened next:
30% of patients killed by the vaccine in 3 weeks: Over 40 people died within 3 weeks after the shot. There were around 140 residents at the time, so the vaccine killed nearly 30% of the residents.
10X higher death rate from COVID: Shortly after the vaccine rollout, in one span of just 3 weeks, there were 90 cases of COVID which resulted in 28 deaths from COVID. COVID, which wasn’t deadly before people got the shots, seems to have made people much more likely to get COVID and much more likely to die from COVID. You don’t have to take my word on this; it’s right there in the official US government CMS data: a 10X higher death rate from COVID post-vaccine.
Also from Steve’s substack:

Since we have all of the Minnesota death certificates, we were able to check to see if this really happened as described.
Short answer: yes, with a few minor discrepancies.
Apple Valley Deaths
The following chart shows the number of deaths that identified Apple Valley Village Health Center as either the residential facility or the place of death of the decedent that occurred in January for every year 2015-2022 for the month of January (blue = 2020; yellow = 2021; red = 2022)
So yes, January 2021 saw an astounding 25 deaths, way more than any previous year.
Next up, we have a chart showing the number of covid deaths from AVVHC for the **ENTIRE calendar year**, each year:
While there were only *TWO* covid deaths1 identified in 2020 (one of which was on December 29th), there were THIRTY covid deaths in 2021, and five more in 2022.
Of these thirty 2021 covid deaths, 24 occurred in January, 5 in February, and 1 in March:
Or in other words, 24/25 of the January deaths in AVVHC were *covid*. In 23/24 covid deaths, covid is listed as the Underlying Cause of Death (UCoD), which in laymen’s terms means the primary cause of death. So we’re supposed to believe that only TWO resident deaths for the entire month were not PRIMARILY FROM covid??
What were the documented Causes of Death for the January deaths at AVVHC?
The screenshot below contains all the causes of death and the ICD 10 code assigned as the UCoD on the death certificates for the January deaths from AVVHC. U071 is the code for covid. You can judge for yourself how credible they are:
It stands to reason that the conditions listed in Part 2 of these death certificates might well be the genuine causes of death for at least some of these decedents.
For the record, the poor chap who died on 1/10 on account of Covid and “respiratory complications of suffered multiple blunt force injuries” as a result of the following injury described on the death certificate as follows:
DECEASED SUFFERED A SCALP LACERATION, SUBDURAL HEMATOMA AND LEFT FEMUR FRACTURE AFTER A FALL DURING A TRANSFER BETWEEN A BED AND A CHAIR
Of course, covid was coded as the primary cause of this death.
Notes to keep in mind
While the numbers from Steve Kirsch’s informant and mine from the death certificate do not match up precisely, this could be due to a few death certificates not identifying Apple Valley Village Health Center as either the decedent’s residential facility or the decedent’s place of death. (Yes, coroners or doctors filling out death certs make lots of errors, a subject for another time.)
These are death certificates, not medical records, so I obviously can’t weigh in on the % of residents who got covid or who died.
The death certificates confirm the substance of the two central allegations put forward in Steve Kirsch’s substack
There was a mass dying event that happened in January 2021, when we know the vaccines were rolled out to seniors in nursing homes
There were essentially no covid deaths prior to January 2021 in this nursing home facility, but then covid deaths exploded, with at least 24 in January alone, plus 4 more in February.
This does not mean that these deaths were legitimate covid deaths, just that the death certificate listed covid as a Cause of Death
