Amid concern expressed by members of FDA and CDC advisory panels that safety data for children regarding Pfizer’s COVID vaccine is lacking, the pharmaceutical company’s CEO charged people are spreading “misinformation” about the vaccines, calling them “criminals” who have cost “millions of lives.”
The Pfizer chief, Albert Bourla, was reacting Tuesday on The Atlantic Council’s “Front Page” podcast to claims of the spread of “fake news” and “conspiracy theories” regarding the vaccines.
Atlantic Council CEO Frederick Kempe asked Bourla how he deals with that, what he thinks is the “primary source” and “how damaging” it was.
“I’m afraid it was quite a lot damaging,” Bourla replied. “There was particularly with us we were targeted by a lot of, let’s say, dark organizations that you don’t really know the ownership, you suspect there are some countries behind.”
“We were getting a lot of briefings from CIA, from FBI about attacks that may happen to us, cyber attacks I mean and also about spread of misinformation.”
Bourla said he understood people who are hesitant about the vaccine.
But there is a small portion of “professionals,” he said, who “circulate on purpose misinformation so that they will mislead those that have concerns.”
“Those people are criminals,” Bourla said. “They’re not bad people. They’re criminals, because they have literally cost millions of lives.”
Kempe agreed, adding they “should be treated as criminals as well, those who have done that.”

Hours before a CDC panel’s approval last week of the Pfizer vaccine for children 5-11, the British Medical Journal published an article featuring a whistleblower’s charge that poor practices at a contract research company helping to carry out the crucial third phase of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine trial last fall may have compromised data integrity and patient safety.
The FDA approved the Pfizer shot for kids one week after an FDA advisory panel voted 17-0, with one abstention, to recommended it, despite acknowledging the lack of safety data and the nearly 100% survival rate for children from infection.
During the FDA advisory committee meeting, Dr. Eric Rubin, editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine, expressed the concern of many members about possible severe side effects that cannot yet be measured. He concluded, nevertheless, there was no other way forward.
“We’re never going to learn about how safe the vaccine is unless we start giving it,” he said. “That’s just the way it goes.”
Dr. Ben Carson, the acclaimed former Johns Hopkins pediatric neurosurgeon and HHS secretary, said the Biden administration’s move to vaccinate young children for COVID-19 amounts to a “giant experiment,” arguing there is no sufficient data to determine the long-term risks posed by the shots.
In early October, three Pfizer scientists were captured on hidden camera in a Project Veritas investigation admitting, contrary to the claims of Dr. Anthony Fauci and other public health officials, that natural immunity is superior to the immunity afforded from COVID vaccines.
Project Veritas interviewed an employee of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services who secretly recorded colleagues voicing alarm about the safety of the vaccines. She alleged a cover-up of “evil at the highest level.” In another investigation by Project Veritas, two Johnson & Johnson officials said children don’t need the vaccine and it poses the risk of “unknown repercussions down the road.”
Pfizer scientist Rahul Khanke said employees are “bred and taught” to insist that the “vaccine is safer than actually getting COVID.” He said “we cannot talk about this” in public.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Last year, America’s doctors, nurses and paramedics were celebrated as frontline heroes battling a fearsome new pandemic. Today, under Joe Biden, tens of thousands of these same heroes are denounced as rebels, conspiracy theorists, extremists and potential terrorists. Along with massive numbers of police, firemen, Border Patrol agents, Navy SEALs, pilots, air-traffic controllers, and countless other truly essential Americans, they’re all considered so dangerous as to merit termination, their professional and personal lives turned upside down due to their decision not to be injected with the experimental COVID vaccines. Biden’s tyrannical mandate threatens to cripple American society – from law enforcement to airlines to commercial supply chains to hospitals. It’s already happening. But the good news is that huge numbers of “yesterday’s heroes” are now fighting back – bravely and boldly. The whole epic showdown is laid out as never before in the sensational October issue of WND’s monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREAT AMERICAN REBELLION: ‘We will not comply!’ COVID-19 power grab ignites bold new era of national defiance.”
