Kingston, a former Pfizer sales representative for the company's branch in New York, left the company and turned into a whistleblower following the Big Pharma corporation's creation of the COVID-19 vaccine. She talked about how Pfizer created this drug with Ann Vandersteel during the Sept. 29 edition of the latter's Brighteon.TV program, "The Zelenko Report."
According to Kingston, Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine did not go through the FDA's strict approval process – and it didn't have to since it was granted emergency use authorization by the FDA, which later gave the vaccine full approval.
"There are distinct legal differences between a product that's used for emergency use authorization versus a product that goes through the FDA approval process, also known as the Initial New Drug application process," said Kingston.
Kingston added that any company that wants to put its products through the Initial New Drug application process agrees to subject those products to a wide range of consumer protection laws, namely the Federal Trade Commission Act of 1914 and Title 21 sections 300 and 500 of the United States Code.
For Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine, this means it would have been prohibited from starting phases 2 and 3 of drug trials if it puts people "at unnecessary risk," said Kingston.
Kingston added that Pfizer would have also been prohibited from giving the product to any "woman of childbearing age that might affect their reproduction," and to any children who are not at risk for the disease the product is marketed at defending against, especially if it could increase the risk of children to "any kind of disease, disability or death."
Because Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine was under the protection of emergency use authorization, it avoided being put through intense scrutiny and rigorous testing before being distributed for widespread use. (Related: No, Pfizer can't use the government as a shield from liability for making false claims about COVID vaccine, lawyers argue.)
"Under emergency use authorization, willful misconduct is legal," Kingston said. "The point of EUA is simply to get a product to market if there is a chemical, biological or a virus agent that is a threat to national security."
By contrast, Kingston said the point of putting products through the FDA approval process is to prove that those products are safe and effective.
"So, if you look at all the documents and the law – I mean, all the FDA documents, the applications, the Department of Defense contracts, you'll clearly see that it states over and over again that the emergency use product from Pfizer and BioNTech is separate," said Kingston. Meaning, the product didn't go through the normal process before being injected to millions of Americans and billions worldwide.
