FDA wants to hold onto Pfizer’s vax secrets until 2076

The FDA in the US has asked a federal judge to make the public wait until the year 2076 to disclose all the data and information it relied upon to license Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine. That is not a typo. It wants 55 years to release this information to the public. 

The FDA had previously promised “full transparency” with regard to Covid-19 vaccines, including reaffirming “the FDA’s commitment to transparency” when licensing Pfizer’s vaccine. 

With that promise in mind, in August and immediately following approval of the vaccine, more than 30 academics, professors, and scientists requested the data and information submitted to the FDA by Pfizer to license its Covid vaccine. 

The FDA’s response? It produced nothing.

So, in September, my firm filed a lawsuit against the FDA on behalf of this group to demand this information. To date, almost three months after it licensed Pfizer’s vaccine, the FDA still has not released a single page. Not one.

Instead, two days ago, the FDA asked a federal judge to give it until 2076 to fully produce this information.

So, let’s get this straight. The federal government shields Pfizer from liability.  Gives it billions of dollars.  Makes Americans take its product.  But won’t let you see the data supporting its product’s safety and efficacy.  Who does the government work for?
