Pfizer bullied, blackmailed government officials to push covid vaccines and maximize corporate profits

Public Citizen has published a report that outlines how drug giant Pfizer created secret contracts and used its monopoly power to manipulate governments into buying and dispensing its Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines.”
As one of the top vaccine producers under “Operation Warp Speed,” Pfizer used its position of power to “silence governments, throttle supply, shift risk, and maximize profits,” according to Public Citizen.
“Behind closed doors, Pfizer wields its power to extract a series of concerning concessions from governments,” said report author Zain Rizvi, a law and policy researcher at Public Citizen’s Access to Medicines program.
“The global community cannot allow pharmaceutical corporations to keep calling the shots.”
Back in February, it was reported that Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech were “bullying” Latin American governments during contract negotiations about the injections. Pfizer targeted Albania, Brazil, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, the European Commission and Peru with predatory contracts.
In some cases, Pfizer asked some of these countries to put up their sovereign assets as a guarantee against the cost of any future legal cases. In other words, it was already known in advance that the jabs were going to harm people, thus leading to lawsuits, and Pfizer wanted to protect itself while still raking in maximum profits.
“We dug into Pfizer vaccine’s contracts,” Rizvi tweeted.
“They offer a rare glimpse into the power one corporation has gained to silence govts, throttle supply and shift risk in the worst public health crisis in a century. Govts must push back to ensure global access.”
