Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued pharmaceutical giant Pfizer on Thursday for using “highly misleading” rhetoric to con Americans into getting the company’s Covid-19 shot despite its failure to prevent infection or transmission.
Pfizer debuted the jab in late 2020 with the promise that it was 95 percent effective against Covid-19 infection. The company used this statistic, based on a final efficacy analysis, to bully Americans into getting the shots in the name of protecting their family and friends from the virus.
The lawsuit out of Texas, however, alleges that the company “engaged in false, deceptive, and misleading acts and practices by making unsupported claims” about its Covid jab that violated the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
“Pfizer created the false impression that its vaccine provided a substantially greater amount of protection against COVID-19 infection than what it afforded in reality. Pfizer undertook a continuous and widespread campaign comprised of the deceptive concerning [sic] alleged above for the purpose of misleading the public about the efficacy of its vaccine,” the lawsuit states. “This course deceptive conduct was reinforced and extended by Pfizer’s efforts to censor persons who sought to disseminate truthful information that would undermine its ongoing deception.”
Paxton specifically found that the data Pfizer used to conclude the Covid shot was nearly 100 percent effective relied on a “relative risk reduction” assessment, a measurement that the Food and Drug Administration warns leaves patients “unduly influenced” and vulnerable to “suboptimal decisions.”
