Texas sues Pfizer over COVID-19 vaccine: ‘The pandemic did not end; it got worse’:
Texas is suing the pharmaceutical giant behind the COVID-19 vaccine. 
In a suit filed Thursday in state district court in Lubbock County, state Attorney General Ken Paxton accused Pfizer of promoting the vaccine and its boosters by making “unsupported claims.”
“Americans were given the impression that Pfizer’s vaccine would end the coronavirus pandemic,” the lawsuit said, according to a report in the San Antonio Express-News. “Contrary to Pfizer’s public statements, however, the pandemic did not end; it got worse.”
Among the facts noted are that more Americans died of COVID-19 in 2021, the year the vaccine became widely available, than died in 2020. A majority of the adults dying of COVID-19 as of August 2022, had been vaccinated and/or boosted, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data shows.
Pfizer said the claims in the lawsuit had “no merit.”
“The representations made by the company about its COVID-19 vaccine have been accurate and science-based,” it said. “Pfizer is deeply committed to the well-being of the patients it serves and has no higher priority than the safety and effectiveness of its treatments and vaccines.” --->READ MORE HERE

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sues Pfizer, alleges pharma giant lied about COVID vaccine efficacy:
Paxton's office accused Pfizer of 'unlawfully misrepresenting the effectiveness of the company’s COVID-19 vaccine'
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing Pfizer, alleging that the pharmaceutical giant lied about the effectiveness of its COVID-19 vaccine.
In a press release obtained by Fox News Digital, Paxton’s office accused Pfizer of "unlawfully misrepresenting the effectiveness of the company’s COVID-19 vaccine and attempting to censor public discussion of the product."
Paxton said Pfizer’s claim that its vaccine possessed 95% efficacy against infection was "highly misleading."
The Republican AG accused Pfizer of using misleading statistics from initial trial results to "unduly influence" consumer choice by giving the impression that the vaccine was durable.
Paxton accused Pfizer of engaging in a campaign to silence and intimidate people who spoke out against the vaccine.
"We are pursuing justice for the people of Texas, many of whom were coerced by tyrannical vaccine mandates to take a defective product sold by lies," Attorney General Paxton said.
Thursday's lawsuit follows Paxton's investigation into Pfizer and other vaccine manufacturers announced earlier this year. --->READ MORE HERE
