Was Pfizer forced to release 9 pages proving that their COVID-19 vaccine has 1,291 side effects?!
Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Pfizer Was Forced To Release 9 Pages Of Vaccine Side Effects!
This warning from China has gone viral, claiming that after the FDA lost their court case, Pfizer was forced to release vaccine documents that would have been kept secret for 55 year!
And amongst those documents are 9 pages of proof that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has 1,291 side effect!
It’s a long read, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts…
Truth : Pfizer Was NOT Forced To Release 9 Pages Of Vaccine Side Effects!
This is yet another example of vaccine fake news created and propagated by Chinese netizens, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : FDA Did Not Lose Their Case
The FDA did not lose the case brought by PHMPT (Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency) – the group requesting the data that the FDA used to licence the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
The PHMPT demanded that the FDA redact and release 329,000 pages of documents within 108 days, which would require them to process over 91,000 pages per month.
The FDA had been processing the documents at a rate of almost 5,000 pages per month, and had already released 7 of the 8 priority items by 31 January 2022.
On 6 January 2022, US District Judge Mark Pittman ordered a compromise, noting that “the Court recognises the “unduly burdensome” challenges that this FOIA request may present to the FDA“.
- The FDA will produce “more than 12,000 pages” as it proposed, by 31 January 2022.
- The FDA will produce the remaining documents at a rate of 55,000 pages per month, starting 1 March 2022.
Granted, the FDA did not win the right to continue processing at their own pace, but neither did the judge agree to let PHMPT force the FDA to deliver all documents within 108 days. It was ultimately a compromise.
Fact #2 : FDA Did Not Try To Suppress Pfizer Trial Data
This is a completely bogus claim, which I fact checked last year. The FDA did not ask to suppress data from the Pfizer mRNA vaccine trial.
That was the “interpretation” of Aaron Siri, the lawyer working for PHMPT. The truth is – the FDA was already releasing documents to PHMPT.
They not only released more than 12,000 pages of the requested 329,000 pages by end of January 2022, they were on track to deliver the remaining documents in about 5 years.
Fact #3 : There Is No Pfizer Report To Be Released In 2085
The fake story falsely claimed that Pfizer was forced to release a document that was “originally scheduled to be released in 2085”.
There is no such Pfizer report. Neither is Pfizer expected to produce a report for release in the year 2085.
Those documents belong to the FDA, and that is why it is the FDA that has to process, redact and release the documents, not Pfizer.
Fact #4 : Pfizer Document Did Not Reveal 1,291 Side Effects
The fake story falsely claimed that the first batch of Pfizer documents included 9 pages of side effects.
There are nine pages of potential “adverse events” listed in the “List of Adverse Events of Special Interest” (AESI).
However, that was NOT a list of side effects caused by the Pfizer mRNA vaccine.
Rather, that was a list of 1,291 potential side effects that Pfizer was specifically looking for in the reports of adverse events.
Think of it as a shopping list of adverse events that everyone agreed that Pfizer should be looking out for.
Even if these adverse events did occur, scientists still need to find out if they actually occurred because of the vaccine, or some other causes.
Fact #5 : AESI List Not Specific To Pfizer Vaccine
The Adverse Events of Special Interest list is not specific to the Pfizer mRNA vaccine. It’s actually stated on Page 16 of the document.
These AESIs are usually specified before clinical trials even begin, although new ones may be added later.
Fact #6 : Pfizer Document Showed No New Safety Concerns
The fake story falsely claimed that the document showed that the Pfizer vaccine caused 1,200 deaths.
If you read the Discussion and Summary + Conclusion sections, you will see that the data :
- did not reveal any “novel safety concerns or risks”
- support “a favourable benefit risk profile” of the vaccine
In other words – the Pfizer document pointed out that despite looking for 1,291 potential dangers, they found no new risks from the vaccine.
