The three COVID-19 vaccines used in America are still undergoing clinical trials. The FactSheets for Recipients for each of these vaccines unambiguously state that the vaccines “have not undergone the same type of review as an FDA-approved or cleared product.”
Media fails to elucidate the difference between Emergency Use Authorization, and FDA approval. Covid-19 vaccines do NOT have FDA approval. In order to obtain approval, final phases of the clinical trials must be completed. Vaccine companies are using data from people currently being vaccinated around the world, AS the final phase clinical trial. Therefore, the trials are not complete; the final clinical phase was skipped.
In addition, animal safety trials were not completed. When human trials commenced, some companies began animal trials in parallel.
