Texas Attorney General Files Lawsuit Against Pfizer Alleging Misleading Vaccine Claims

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has taken legal action against pharmaceutical company Pfizer, claiming that the company used deceptive tactics to coerce the public into getting the COVID-19 vaccine. In a 54-page lawsuit, Paxton alleges that Pfizer engaged in false advertising by making unsupported claims about the effectiveness of its vaccine.

He accuses the company of intimidating and silencing those who questioned the vaccine’s efficacy. Paxton, a vocal critic of COVID-19 safety mandates, believes Pfizer deceived the American public and sold a defective product.

“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,” Paxton stated. “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 seeks $10,000 in civil penalties for each of the alleged violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, totaling more than $10 million. Additionally, the state is requesting a permanent injunction to prevent Pfizer from making false claims about its vaccine.

Pfizer has denied the allegations, asserting that the lawsuit lacks merit. The company maintains that its vaccine has been administered to over 1.5 billion people worldwide and has a favorable safety profile, effectively protecting against hospitalization and death.

The lawsuit, filed in a Texas state district court, criticizes Pfizer for not ending the pandemic quickly enough. However, health data at both the federal and state level contradicts many of the claims made in the lawsuit.

Infections and deaths significantly decreased in early 2022, coinciding with a high vaccination rate. According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, fully vaccinated individuals in Texas have a COVID death rate 12 times lower than unvaccinated individuals.

Paxton’s lawsuit follows an inquiry that began in May, in which he examined the efficacy claims of major drug companies regarding their vaccines. The attorney general expressed his commitment to uncovering the decision-making process behind pandemic interventions, suggesting that political pressure and financial motives may have influenced the companies.

The investigation commenced just days before the official end of the pandemic. Despite facing impeachment for abuse of office, Paxton was acquitted in September after a trial and reinstated as attorney general.
