The FDA has requested a Federal Judge to make the public wait a total of 55 years before it has to legally disclose all of the data and information received from Pfizer used to license its mRNA Covid-19 injection.
With that promise in mind, in August and immediately following approval of the vaccine, more than 30 academics, professors, and scientists from the USA’s most prestigious universities requested the data and information submitted to the FDA by Pfizer to license its Covid-19 vaccine.
However, the FDA did not produce a single document. So, in September, Sili & Glimstad filed a lawsuitagainst 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. The FDA asked the judge to let it produce the 329,000+ pages of documents Pfizer provided to the FDA to license its vaccine at the rate of 500 pages per month, which means its production would not be completed earlier than 2076., breaking its previous promise of transparency.
It took the FDA precisely 108 days from when Pfizer started producing the records for licensure (on May 7, 2021) to when the FDA licensed the Pfizer vaccine (on August 23, 2021). Taking the FDA at its word, it conducted an intense, robust, thorough, and complete review and analysis of those documents in order to assure that the Pfizer vaccine was safe and effective for licensure. While it can conduct that intense review of Pfizer’s documents in 108 days, it now asks for over 20,000 days to make these documents available to the public.
