Pfizer Acknowledges Employees Received Batch of Vaccines That Australian Senator Said Were Not TGA Tested

According to two executives at Pfizer Inc., Australia-based staff at the pharmaceutical company were provided with their own separate batch of specially imported COVID-19 vaccines. The executives spoke at a hearing in the Australian Senate, where they were questioned by Queensland Senator Malcolm Roberts.

An excerpt from the hearing was subsequently shared by Mr. Roberts on his YouTube channel. The shared segment depicts the Pfizer representatives—Dr. Krishan Thiru, Medical Director for Pfizer Australia and New Zealand, and the company’s Head of Regulatory Sciences, Dr. Brian Hewitt—fielding the senator’s questions.

“We’ve read that your [employee] vaccine mandate was using your own batch of vaccine especially imported for Pfizer, which was not tested by the TGA. Is that correct?” Mr. Roberts asked, in reference to the Therapeutic Goods Administration, which regulates medicines in Australia.

One of the Pfizer executives responded by confirming that Pfizer imported a batch of vaccines especially for the company’s employee vaccination program. The reason for this, according to the representative, was so that no vaccines would be taken from the government’s TGA-approved stocks that were being delivered to clinics in Australia.

Mr. Roberts then asked whether any employees who had refused to take the injection were fired as a result. The executives confirmed that “a small number of colleagues departed the company.” After further questions from Mr. Roberts, the Pfizer representatives also confirmed that Australian employees of the company remain under vaccine mandate to this day.

However, the representatives repeatedly declined to discuss details of the indemnity contract Pfizer was granted by the Australian government.

When asked whether the company’s contract with the government for the supply of injections included a clause that negates Pfizer’s indemnity in the event of criminal activities, such as fraudulent treatment of trial data, the executives responded by saying that the company’s indemnity agreements were confidential and could not be shared with the committee.

Pfizer’s ‘Highest Standards’

Dr. Thiru stated at the hearing that Pfizer “always abides by all of the laws and regulations of the markets in which it operates,” and that it abides by the “highest standards” for clinical trials.

However, Pfizer has previously been fined $2.3 billion in the United States for the illegal promotion of drugs.

The senator went on to ask the representatives whether COVID-19 vaccines were initially developed as a counter-measure for the United States’ Department of Defense (DoD). Dr. Thiru declined to provide a yes-or-no answer, saying that the vaccine was developed in the early part of 2020 as a response to what he referred to as the “dire global public health emergency” that was COVID-19.

Mr. Roberts noted in the description of the video that the Senate Hearing had already revealed “that Pfizer is rewriting history on transmission of infection.

“We’re supposed to conveniently forget they said ‘Get it to protect others, to save grandma,’ and ‘When you’re vaccinated the virus stops with you.’ They’re hiding behind their indemnity contract with our government and dodging responsibility,” he said.

Mr. Roberts said he is advocating for the end of what he calls “unsafe and ineffective shots,” and to “drop the destructive mandates now.”
