The FDA is pulling the same bait and switch they did with COMIRNATY (which remains unavailable in the United States). So lets make a few things very clear before the inevitable misinformation about Spikevax being available spreads. According to the FDA Spikevax has received FDA approval.
According to the FDA the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine REMAINS EMERGENCY USE AUTHORIZED.
Many will attempt to spread misinformation by claiming Spikevax and the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine are the same thing. The FDA’s letter of approval clearly states this is not true and that “The products are legally distinct with certain differences”
This is also clearly stated in the FDA‘s fact sheets to vaccine providers which was updated the day of Spikevax Approval 1/31/22
The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine is Emergency Use Authorized (EUA) for doses 1 & 2, as well as additional booster doses.
Spikevax is only FDA approved for doses 1 & 2, it is EUA for booster doses.
Why have 2 legally distinct vaccines?
It is simple, the PREP act protects people like Big Pharma, Vaccine Providers, and more from legal liability if the vaccine or any other EUA product hurts or even kills you. Yes death is covered by PREP act Liability protection.
The PREP act covers many people, including Ohio University. While FDA approved vaccines can lose liability protection for many reasons including if a pandemic is declared over, EUA countermeasures are covered indefinitely.
This means Pfizer and Moderna can advertise their vaccines as “FDA Approved”, give patients the Emergency Use Authorized Vaccines, and protect themselves from all liability, While receiving millions and billions from the government.
It is probably safe to assume you wont see any Spikevax doses being administered for the primary series anytime soon. Neither Spikevax or COMIRNATY is shown on vaccines.gov vaccine finder.
According to the CDC Vaccines.gov displays the “types of COVID-19 vaccines available”. So it’s odd they wouldn’t list their FDA approved vaccines on the website if they were actually available, which they of course are not.
Page 7 of The Letter of Authorization for Spikevax literally even admits Spikevax and COMIRNATY are not available in the United States as of 1/31/22. COMIRNATY has been approved since August, why else would Pfizer continue to produce the EUA vaccine and still have no FDA approved COMIRNATY available unless it was for the liability protection?
The FDA acknowledges once again the mRNA vaccines are known to cause Myocarditis and pericarditis in the SPIKEVAX Information for Recipients and Caregivers.
The Big Pharma pyramid scheme continues.
