Texas Sues Pfizer for Misrepresenting COVID Vaccine Claims, Censoring Americans | 30 Nov 2023 | Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Thursday that he's suing pharmaceutical giant Pfizer for "misrepresenting COVID-19 vaccine efficacy." Paxton issued a news release describing in detail how Pfizer systematically misled the public about vaccine efficacy as well as attempting to "censor public discussion" about their mRNA products. "The pharmaceutical company's widespread representation that its vaccine possessed 95% efficacy against infection as highly misleading," the letter reads. "That metric represented a calculation of the so-called 'relative risk reduction' for vaccinated individuals in Pfizer's initial, two-month clinical trial results. FDA publications indicate 'relative risk reduction' is a misleading statistic that 'unduly influence[s]' consumer choice." It continues: "Pfizer was also put on notice at that time that vaccine protection could not accurately be predicted beyond two months. Nevertheless, Pfizer fostered a misleading impression that vaccine protection was durable and withheld from the public information that undermined its claims about the duration of protection."
