Independent board member responsible for ensuring vaccine safety was on Pfizer’s payroll

A Pfizer’s Independent Data Safety Monitoring Board member admitted in court that she was on the pharmaceutical company’s payroll.

Lawyer Aaron Siri, representing Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN), pulled the shocking admission during a cross-examination of Kathryn Edwards, a vaccinologist, MD, and Vanderbilt University professor.

“Since it’s supposed to be independent, it’s critical that the members of that Independent Data and Safety Monitoring Board are in fact independent of the pharmaceutical company whose product is being evaluated – correct?” asked Siri.

“That’s correct,” Edwards said.

ICAN, a Texas nonprofit “committed to informed consent, and the eradication of Man-made disease,” obtained a court order requiring the CDC to hand over vaccine safety data in September.
