Pfizer hired 600 full-time employees to handle the volume of reported adverse events resulted from its mRNA vaccines, lawsuit filing shows
It’s been a while since we last reported about the covid pandemic. At a time when we’re all trying to move on and put the pandemic behind us, a new omicron subvariant has reportedly been detected in the United Kingdom.
Known as the XE variant, the virus has so far been detected in 637 patients across the United Kingdom, according to the latest data from the U.K. Health Security Agency. The organization said there is currently not enough data to draw conclusions on the transmissibility or severity of the variant.
Meanwhile, there is a new revelation about why The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been trying to conceal the information about the Pfizer mRNA vaccines for 55 years. As we reported late last year, the FDA asked a federal judge on Nov. 15 to give it until the year 2076 to fully release all of the data and the documents the agency used as the basis for the approval and license of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. Now we know why.
According to a new report from The Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN), a non-profit organization focused on the scientific integrity of vaccines and the pharmaceutical industry, Pfizer hired 600 full-time employees to handle the volume of reported adverse events from its mRNA vaccines over the last two years.
The attorneys that represent ICAN are representing the plaintiff in a lawsuit against the FDA to obtain Pfizer’s covid vaccine documents. They recently secured an unredacted copy of a previously produced post-authorization adverse event report. The lifted redactions reveal that within weeks of Pfizer’s vaccine being administered pursuant to emergency use authorization, Pfizer, apparently unexpectedly, had to hire 600 full-time employees “to help alleviate the large increase of adverse event reports” being received by the company.
You can find the initial redacted copy of the report here and the unredacted copy here with the redactions lifted on page 6.
The lifted redactions also reveal the number of doses that had been shipped as of the date of the report (just over 126 million doses), offering at least some denominator to assist in understanding the volume of reports following vaccination. Notably, this is the number of doses shipped and the report does not disclose the number of doses administered by the date of the report.
