Drug Maker Didn’t Test if COVID Vaccine Stopped Transmission of Virus

Government requirements that people get vaccinated or lose their jobs or access to public accommodations were imposed based on the assumption that COVID vaccines would succeed in preventing COVID from spreading. But it turns out that Pfizer didn’t even test whether its vaccine prevented the spread of the virus.

“Pfizer executive Janine Small admitted to the European Parliament with a laugh that the company did not test if its COVID-19 vaccine stopped transmission of the virus before the vaccine was put on the market,” reports PJ Media.

Small made the admission in a video tweeted by Dutch member of the European Parliament Rob Roos.

The Dutch government instituted a COVID-19 vaccine passport in late 2021. But as Roos notes, Small’s admission undercuts the Dutch government’s justification for the passport.

“If you don’t get vaccinated, you’re anti-social. This is what the Dutch Prime Minister and Health Minister told us,” Roos said. “You don’t get vaccinated just for yourself, but also for others—you do it for all of society. That’s what they said.” But that argument no longer holds, Roos explained. “Today, this turns out to be complete nonsense. In a COVID hearing in the European Parliament, one of the Pfizer directors just admitted to me—at the time of introduction, the vaccine had never been tested on stopping the transmission of the virus.”

“This removes the entire legal basis for the COVID passport, the COVID passport that led to massive institutional discrimination as people lost access to essential parts of society,” Roos said. “I find this to be shocking, even criminal.”

In the video, Roos asked Small, “Was the Pfizer COVID vaccine tested on stopping the transmission of the virus before it entered the market? If not, please say it clearly. If yes, are you willing to share the data with this committee?” Roos said he was asking in English specifically to avoid any misunderstanding on Small’s part.

Small clearly dreaded answering the question. “Regarding the question around, um, when we knew about stopping immunization before, um, it entered the market—no!” Small exclaimed with a nervous laugh. “These, um, you know, we had to really move at the speed of science to really understand what is taking place in the market.”

A recent study funded by Moderna found that the Moderna coronavirus vaccine actually increases the odds of people getting infected with the most recent strains of the coronavirus, in contrast with prior strains of the coronavirus, which the vaccine helps prevent.The vaccine helps against variant BA.1, but become worse than useless against variant BA.5 (the most common strain today), BA.2, BA.4, and BA.1.12.1, within 150 days after the vaccine is administered. So it looks like people should get a different vaccine than the Moderna.

Although vaccines don’t do much to reduce the spread of recent strains of COVID, and thus should not be legally required, they have reduced the severity of illness of many people who got vaccinated, and thus reduced overall mortality.
