Truth : Hackers Did Not Steal / Release Pfizer + Moderna Vaccine Death Data!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and promoted by disinformation websites like Before It’s News, How Bad Is My Batch, Best News Here, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Pfizer + Moderna Servers Were Not Hacked
Those websites falsely claimed that hackers broke into Pfizer and Moderna servers, and stole their (hidden) vaccine death data.
There is no evidence the Pfizer and Moderna servers were ever hacked, or had any data stolen.
Fact #2 : All Data Are Publicly Available
Despite claiming at the start that the data provided in the website was stolen from Pfizer and Moderna servers, the article ends with a statement that all of the data was really sourced from VAERS.
In other words – they falsely claimed that the data was provided by hackers who broke into Pfizer and Moderna servers. The data were all from VAERS, which is publicly available.
Fact #3 : VAERS Data Cannot Be Used As Evidence
- Reports may include incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental and unverified information.
- The number of reports alone cannot be interpreted or used to reach conclusions about the existence, severity, frequency, or rates of problems associated with vaccines.
But anti-vaccination activists and disinformation websites LOVE to use VAERS, because they can easily manipulate the reports to create a fake narrative.
Fact #4 : Pfizer + Moderna Released Their Data In 2020
Both Pfizer and Moderna submitted data from their COVID-19 vaccine clinical trials to health authorities across the world, like the US FDA and EMA in Europe in November 2020.
The release of clinical trial data, which would include post-vaccination adverse events, is necessary for any health authority to approve their vaccines.
The US FDA released the briefing documents Pfizer and Moderna submitted to the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) in December 2020 :
- Pfizer-BioNTech BNT162b2 vaccine : Publicly released on 10 December 2020
- Moderna COVID-19 vaccine : Publicly released on 17 December 2020
Fact #5 : FDA Started Releasing Pfizer Documents In 2021
On 27 August 2021, a group that called themselves Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency (PHMPT) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the US FDA to gain access to all of their documents related to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
The US FDA started releasing the Pfizer documents on 17 November 2021. They were then ordered by US District Judge Mark Pittman to speed up the release of those documents on 6 January 2022.
As of 2 May 2022, the US FDA had already released 238 documents related to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, containing thousands of pages.
Fact #6 : Before It’s News Is Known Fake News Website
Before It’s News is known for creating and spreading fake news – not just misinformation, but also disinformation about everything from MH17 conspiracy theories to anti-vaccination claims.
Everything posted by Before It’s News must be considered FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.
