The federal government and mockingbird media are still clinging to their slipping grasp of the dwindling minority of Americans who are still concerned about the “pandemic”.
Reported by the USAToday:
The FDA gave emergency authorization to a “bivalent” vaccine that targets both the original virus and the BA.4 and BA.5 variants that now dominate the world…
As requested by the companies, the Pfizer-BioNTech booster was authorized for anyone ages 12 and up, while Moderna’s vaccine is authorized for adults only. Both were authorized for use at least 2 months after any previous COVID-19 shots.
The new vaccine, which is actually called Bivalent, is still not the FDA-approved COMIRNATY, which is Pfizer’s only FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine. In fact, USAToday claims this modified vaccine is “bivalent”, but the FDA specifically confirms that COMIRNATY is a monovalent vaccine.
The new COVID boosters were not tested on humans – only mice.
Furthermore, that same FDA webpage lists COMIRNATY as:
a monovalent COVID-19 vaccine that is approved for use as a two-dose primary series for the prevention of COVID-19
and then immediately underneath it, the FDA states:
Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine is a monovalent COVID-19 vaccine that is authorized for emergency use to prevent COVID-19
and then in another semantics pretzel, they introduce Bivalent:
Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent is authorized for use to prevent COVID-19 in individuals 12 years of age and older
COMIRNATY is still, to this day, not available in the United States. A USAToday “fact-check” that states the two vaccines are the same and there’s no issue interchanging the two. It’s notable that the USAToday received enough feedback to warrant an entire “fact check” article, but the FDA still won’t address the distinction between the two on their FAQ page. This article from the Brownstone Institute may offer some insight:
Peter Meyers, emeritus professor at George Washington University Law School told me the only difference in American law between an EUA or licensed covid-19 vaccine is that “the statute specifically says that the physician who gives you the vaccination must tell you, that for an emergency use vaccination, that it’s optional, discretionary, it’s not mandatory that you get it.
…He said the EUA and BLA status of the vaccine also does not alter the liability protections afforded to the vaccine manufacturers for the covid-19 vaccines, with one exception — willful misconduct.
Brook Jackson, the whistle-blower who provided The BMJ with evidence of falsified data in Pfizer’s pivotal mRNA trial has already filed a lawsuit for false claims against Pfizer (and its trial site operators) alleging they “deliberately withheld crucial information from the United States that calls the safety and efficacy of their vaccine into question” and “concealed violations of both their clinical trial protocol and federal regulations, including falsification of clinical trial documents.“
So while people are still trying to figure out whether or not there is an FDA-approved version of the Pfizer vaccine, there is now a third variation of the Pfizer shot available for those who are still in the grips of fear.
