You might not have heard it in the news, but in recent months Pfizer’s pharmacovigilance documents requested by the European Union’s drug regulator, the European Medicines Agency, have been released. They show that Pfizer knew about a sickening level of injury early on.
Analysis by British Medical Journal senior editor Peter Doshi and colleagues has shown that the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are statistically more likely to cause serious adverse events than they are to prevent hospitalization.
Examining serious adverse events reported in the vaccines’ clinical trials, the analysis found that while the Pfizer vaccine reduced the risk of hospitalization from COVID-19 by 2.3 per 10,000 participants relative to the placebo group, and the Moderna vaccine by 6.4 per 10,000 participants, together the injections were associated with an increase in serious adverse events of 12.5 per 10,000 participants.
To read how a researcher involved in the clinical trials for Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine has revealed that some of the study data claimed to have been obtained from the tests were falsified, see this article on our website.
