Texas attorney general sues Pfizer for misrepresenting Covid vaccine efficacy


Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has sued Pfizer, Inc. for unlawfully misrepresenting the effectiveness of the company’s Covid-19 vaccine and attempting to censor public discussion of the product.

Pfizer engaged in false, deceptive, and misleading acts and practices by making unsupported claims regarding the company’s Covid-19 vaccine in violation of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

The pharmaceutical company’s widespread representation that its vaccine possessed 95% efficacy against infection was highly misleading.

That metric represented a calculation of the so-called “relative risk reduction” for vaccinated individuals in Pfizer’s initial, two-month clinical trial results. FDA publications indicate “relative risk reduction” is a misleading statistic that “unduly influence[s]” consumer choice.

Pfizer was also put on notice at that time that vaccine protection could not accurately be predicted beyond two months. An yet, Pfizer fostered a misleading impression that vaccine protection was durable and withheld from the public information that undermined its claims about the duration of protection. And, despite the fact that its clinical trial failed to measure whether the vaccine protects against transmission, Pfizer embarked on a campaign to intimidate the public into getting the vaccine as a necessary measure to protect their loved ones, Paxton said in a statement.

In fact, Pfizer’s product failed to live up to the company’s representations. Covid-19 cases increased after widespread vaccine administration, and some areas saw a greater percentage of deaths from Covid-19 among the vaccinated population than the unvaccinated. When the failure of its product became apparent, Pfizer then pivoted to silencing truth-tellers.

The lawsuit says: “How did Pfizer respond when it became apparent that its vaccine was failing and the viability of its cash cow was threatened? By intimidating those spreading the truth, and by conspiring to censor its critics. Pfizer labeled as ‘criminals’ those who spread facts about the vaccine. It accused them of spreading ‘misinformation.’ And it coerced social media platforms to silence prominent truth-tellers.”

“We are pursuing justice for the people of Texas, many of whom were coerced by tyrannical vaccine mandates to take a defective product sold by lies,” said Attorney General Paxton. “The facts are clear. Pfizer did not tell the truth about their COVID-19 vaccines. Whereas the Biden Administration weaponized the pandemic to force illegal public health decrees on the public and enrich pharmaceutical companies, I will use every tool I have to protect our citizens who were misled and harmed by Pfizer’s actions.”

The lawsuit follows Attorney General Paxton’s investigation into Pfizer and other vaccine manufacturers announced earlier this year.


  1. Psst… psst… Hey Alaska’s Attorney General… might be a good idea to join this lawsuit on behalf of all the Alaskan’s that were forced, coerced, duped, etc. etc. etc. Into getting these so-called “vaccines” as well… just a thought… maybe stand-up for all the individuals who were not allowed to stand-up for themselves at the time and forced to sign waivers on their individual rights when they were forced to get the “shot”…

    • That would be a good first step to becoming governor. Dunleavy needs to get primaried …such as that is with our current voting/election system.🙄

    • Oh my goodness. When the vaccines were made available, they were still under research status. It was in the interest of American society to avoid as many deaths as possible. Most reasoning and reasonable folks generally accept rationale for MODERN laws arresting those drivers with certain BAC, those not wearing seatbelts, and regulations requiring babies to travel in carseats, recalls on unsafe toys as issues for universal protective public health measures. I’ll bet most of the folks here are not of the age to remember quarantines for the German measles, what occurred during the ’50s, ’60s with regard to poliomyelitis, or would be able to recognize a smallpox scar.

  2. Good. We can’t be made whole, but we can air out the truth and move to have the worst offenders punished.

  3. Texas needs to add Fauci and any other government officials who held stock while simultaneously forcing the vaccine on us.

  4. Sv-40 is in the shots and wasn’t supposed to be in them. Robert Malone talked under oath to congress about the science of the sv-40 getting into shots, within the last couple weeks.
    I’m baffled at the lack of outrage and education from the public. I’ve talked to a few doctors and generally I know more as a layman than they do even after they have been administrating the shots.
    This malfeasance of the medical field is pure evil and criminal, in my opinion.
    Malone stated that the first know effects of sv-40 is birth defects and cancers.

  5. I said it from the beginning. It was crimes against humanity. Should be seen the same way as the holocaust. Being them all to trial and do it quickly

  6. It would be just that the pharmaceutical companies be held accountable. They differ little from the tobacco companies in principle, although I can’t remember even the tobacco companies going quite so far. Excessive greed always leads to misconduct and all Americans should expect accountability. Political players who knowingly engaged in this widespread deception should also be held accountable, and those adversely effected deserve justice as well. The handling of this pandemic will inevitably go down in history as one of the greatest tests of our system.

    • Based on this comment by Trig, it could be concluded that there are folks out here that never, ever, in their whole life ever was prescribed a medication, nor ever, never smoke a commercial cigarette, or alcoholic beverage. Or, maybe, has remaining residual anger still over the tetanus shot after stepping on a rusty nail, or that big penicillin shot forced upon them as a child when they had strep throat

      • Dont forget the chinese made fentanyl your president is importing to your list that is taking 100,000 lives/yr (including infamous deceased individuals such as George Floyd)

  7. Just think about what was suppressed by the government/Big Pharma/Mainstream Media/Social Media conspiracy and the lengths they went to to destroy anyone who opposed them. They should all face the full fury of justice and the American population. These mRNA “vaccines” qualify as a crime against humanity and anyone who still believes that the jabs were actually beneficial should put the Koolaid down and do some independent research…or, go out and get the latest booster because your sacrifice just strengthens the species.

  8. Considering Pfizer was fined and forced to pay out 2.3 Billion in 2009 for the same type of violations of lying to the public about the efficacy and the governments role in forcing the phony shot mandate should make them both partners in crime.
    The Federal agencies (FDA CDC WHO etc) and mainly the mad scientist Fauci who could never repeat the same info week to week who kept changing his lies as the virus He was in charge of developing was spreading around the world should also be charged with their roles in the madness that ensued after releasing the virus just in time for the election.
    With the financial assistance AND approval of the Obama administration to develop a gain of function super virus the culpability cannot be solely on the shoulders of Pfizer Moderna J&J.

    All of the masterminds who said “the benefits of this very important viral research was far greater than the risks involved” (straight out of Fauci’s lying mouth) should be held accountable and punished accordingly.
    Texas is the perfect venue for such a trial as they still have the death penalty for extreme premeditated first degree murder which should be on the table in this case.

    • And, yet, the president in front of him taking all the credit does not ‘deserve’ any accountability, nor punishment, but should’ve been rewarded with a golden fleece. Eh?

  9. Good for Texas! Wish our Cowardly Lion of a Governor would direct his Attorney General to do the same.
