Researcher: The FDA’s risk-benefit analysis in connection with Pfizer’s Emergency Use Authorization application to inject children ages 5 to 11 with its COVID-19 vaccine is “one of the shoddiest documents I’ve ever seen.”
Where to even begin with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) preposterous risk-benefit analysis of Pfizer’s mRNA COVID-19 “vaccine” in children ages 5 to 11?
Let’s start with my bona fides. I have a year of undergraduate statistics at one of the best liberal arts colleges in America (Swarthmore). I have a year of graduate statistics at the master’s program rated #1 for policy analysis (UC Berkeley). And I have a Ph.D. in political economy from one of the top universities in the world (University of Sydney).
My research focus is on corruption in the pharmaceutical industry so I’ve read scientific studies in connection with vaccines nearly every day for five years. Earlier in my career, I worked professionally tearing apart shoddy cost-benefit analyses prepared by corporations that were trying to get tax breaks, contracts and other concessions from local government.
Suffice it to say I’ve thought a lot about risk-benefit analysis and I’m better equipped than most to read one of these documents.
