Whistleblower alleges—without evidence—misconduct in Pfizer vaccine trials

A trending article reports a whistleblower’s allegation that Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine trials were compromised due to misconduct from a research organization contracted by the company. The allegation, which includes accusations of data tampering, is being used to claim that the vaccine is not safe. The article’s claims have not been verified. In a statement, the research organization in question denied that the whistleblower, who the organization briefly employed, was involved in any clinical trial research. The accusations are not evidence against the vaccines. A systematic review of the real-world benefits and harms of the vaccine found it to be safe and effective, with many studies ongoing as part of a global effort to ensure safety and transparency.
