The Commentary article in this week’s Gazette (Last bastion for vaccine hesitancy tumbles with FDA approval, Thursday August 26) states the FDA gave full approval to the Pfizer vaccine. This is factually incorrect.
The FDA gave approval to the Pfizer-BioNTech Cominarty vaccine, which is a slightly different version of the current Pfizer Vaccine. The Cominarty vaccine will not be available until end 2022/2023 and at present does not have immunity from prosecution in the event of Adverse Reactions.
The product is referred to as a “Biologic”, since it does not fit the definition of a “Vaccine” ( it neither prevents you getting the disease nor transmitting it). When it comes to market it will have a different label and name to the one currently in use.
The current Pfizer vaccine is still under the Emergency Use Authorization as before. Nothing has changed, and Pfizer is still protected from any adverse events prosecution under an indemnity shield. The current supplies of the Pfizer vaccine will be used up and then replaced with the Cominarty vaccine in around two years.

As an extra, which you might be unaware of, Pfizer document, Page 5, 1 : C states “The EUA can only be applied if there is no adequate, approved, alternative to the emergency use of Pfizer-BioNTech C-19 vaccine.”
In practice, what this has meant is that there has been a concerted, systematic repression of all attempts at offering early intervention treatments with medications such as Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, Fluvoxamine and others……despite many countries around the world having astounding results and thousands of lives saved. If these safe, cheap, effective medications were to become widely available then the EUA would be null and void and Big Pharma would lose Billions of dollars.
This is why people have turned to using animal grade Ivermectin products…because they are being denied the human medication (a Nobel prize winning medication for human use which has an excellent safety record after 4 billion doses used).
Instead they are being told to “go home and wait till you turn blue, then go to the hospital.” Wanting an option to be treated for Sars-Cov2 very early on in the disease to avoid hospitalization ” does NOT make one “entitled and in denial”, as you suggest and your trite use of these words suggests that you do not really grasp the magnitude of the issues involved here.
I am asking you to publish a correction to your comments in next weeks Gazette to clarify that the EUA for the Pfizer vaccine is still in effect and remains unchanged.
