A Pfizer executive admitted Monday that it did not know whether the COVID-19 virus vaccine it had developed with BioNTech would be able to prevent viral transmission. This shocking admission was made by the executive of the company.
Janine Small, Pfizer’s president for international development markets, testified Monday before the COVID-19 committee of the European Parliament on behalf of Dr. Albert Bourla (Pfizer CEO). The committee summoned him but he resigned.
Rob Roos (a Dutch Member of Parliament) asked Small if Pfizer could show evidence that it believes the vaccine will prevent coronavirus transmission prior to bringing it on the market.
Many governments across Europe and the globe have implemented policies that require people to prove their COVID-19 vaccination to be able to participate fully in public life. This was in response to guidance from public health officials. These “COVID passports”, also known as COVID passports, were created on the assumption that people who had been vaccinated would be protected against illness and could therefore socialize with others without the risk of spreading the disease.
Roos was among a few other European Parliament members who objected to the vaccination requirements in a video Tuesday. He said that the justification for COVID passports was “always a lie.”
Roos stated that Small’s admission of not having tested the vaccine to prevent transmission “removes all legal basis for the COVID Passport.” The COVID passport was a major source of institutional discrimination, as people were denied access to vital parts of society.
Pfizer-BioNTech developed the mRNA vaccine and was granted an emergency authorization in the United States Dec. 11, 2020. It was later approved by Food and Drug Administration on August 23, 2021. Comirnaty is the name of the vaccine. It is approved for emergency use by children as young at five years old, but it can be used to prevent COVID-19.
The FDA granted Pfizer an emergency authorization in late 2020. It stated that there was no evidence that this vaccine prevented the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 between person and person.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), COVID-19 vaccination reduces the likelihood of serious illness, hospitalizations, and even death for COVID-19-infected people.
Pfizer claimed, prior to the vaccine’s approval that it had been shown in studies that its vaccine was as effective as 91.3% against COVID-19. It also showed 100% effectiveness in preventing infections in at most one study.
Roos stated that Pfizer’s admission that it never tested the vaccine for transmission prevention was “scandalous.”
The vaccine’s effectiveness against mutations has declined over time (Delta and Omicron, for example). SARS-CoV-2 virus. As breakthrough infections are becoming more common, health officials recommend that people receive COVID-19 booster shot.
Officials claim that COVID-19 vaccination is not effective in preventing infection, despite the evidence. In July 2021, President Joe Biden stated that “You are not going to get COVID” if you have received these vaccines. He tested positive for the virus one year later.
The White House’s outgoing chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci has made contradictory statements about the effectiveness of the vaccine. Fauci stated to CBS News in May 2021 that vaccine-vaccinated individuals were “dead ends” for the virus and said that the chance of a person transmitting COVID was “very very low.”
Fauci, however, told Katie Couric in August 2021 that people who had been vaccinated could still transmit the virus. He said, “They are either without symptoms or only mildly affected.” It’s not likely that the vaccine will make the person sick. It’s more likely that the vaccine will allow the vaccinated person transmit the virus to another person, such as a elderly person, a vulnerable member of the family, or a child who isn’t vaccinated.
Fauci stated that the goal wasn’t to stop transmission but to reduce the severity and duration of illness. He stated, “The vaccine is doing exactly the thing we wanted it to.” “It prevents people from becoming seriously ill. That’s why you get vaccinated.”
