No! Pfizer’s Covid-19 Vaccine Was NOT Approved, It Was BioNTech’s Vaccine ComirnatyAustin Roe
The FDA has been caught yet again playing bait-and-switch with the data and Covid-19 vaccine approvals. Technocracy described the sham:
First, the drug giant Pfizer did not directly develop its mRNA shot: it hired a German company in 2018, BioNTech, to do that for them. They subsequently entered into a joint marketing/manufacturing agreement to deliver the resulting product to the world. Thus BioNTech is not a subsidiary of Pfizer. According to their joint 2018 press release, we learn that:
“Under the terms of the agreement, BioNTech and Pfizer will jointly conduct research and development activities to help advance mRNA‐based flu vaccines. Pfizer will assume sole responsibility for further clinical development and commercialization of mRNA‐based flu vaccines, following BioNTech’s completion of a first in human clinical study.”
The latter human clinical study is what was delivered to the FDA for evaluation, on behalf of BioNTech, in order to get FDA “approval”. BioNTech named the shot Comirnaty. Pfizer has not conducted its own trial, much less submitted it to the FDA.
Because of the contractual development agreement between the two companies, it is unclear that the BioNTech shot is identical to whatever Pfizer is distributing in America, or anywhere else, for that matter. Nevertheless, the media and the FDA promote Pfizer/BioNTech without making any distinctions between the two.
What was “approved” by the FDA on Monday (8/23) was Comirnaty, which belongs to the BioNTech side of the Pfizer/BioNTech working agreement.
