You Still Cannot Sue Pfizer or Moderna for Vaccine Injuries or Deaths
Don't let your employer's HR department lie to you
I’m hearing from people who believe that they can sue Pfizer for vaccine injuries or deaths resulting from the Covid vaccine.
They can’t. Neither can you.
It doesn’t matter when you got the vaccine. It doesn’t matter what the injector told you. And it certainly doesn’t matter what your HR manager told you.
There is no FDA approved vaccine for Covid in the United States. Anyone who tells you otherwise is ignorant or lying.
As I explained last week, the FDA gave final approval to a Covid vaccine by Pfizer called Comirnaty, which is “legally distinct” from Pfizer-BioNTech, the drug that is available in the United States. BioNTech is under an emergency use authorization (EUA), not final approval. Therefore, any Pfizer Covid shot you get or have gotten is an emergency-use drug, not an approved drug.
The information in this CNBC article still applies to you:
If you experience severe side effects after getting a Covid vaccine, lawyers tell CNBC there is basically no one to blame in a U.S. court of law.
The federal government has granted companies like Pfizer and Modernaimmunity from liability if something unintentionally goes wrong with their vaccines.
You also can’t sue the Food and Drug Administration for authorizing a vaccine for emergency use, nor can you hold your employer accountable if they mandate inoculation as a condition of employment.
In February, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar invoked the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act. The 2005 law empowers the HHS secretary to provide legal protection to companies making or distributing critical medical supplies, such as vaccines and treatments, unless there’s “willful misconduct” by the company. The protection lasts until 2024.
That means that for the next four years, these companies “cannot be sued for money damages in court” over injuries related to the administration or use of products to treat or protect against Covid.
In other words, if your employer imposes a vaccine mandate, your choice is to get fired or submit to the largest human experiment in history because there is no fully approved vaccine for Covid in the United States.
