Rep. Norman: Vaccine data belongs to the public

A member of Congress is demanding the FDA release COVID vaccine data within 100 days instead of prolonging the release for up to 55 years.

Representative Ralph Norman (R-South Carolina) has gone so far as to introduce legislation [PDF] that could force the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to release all records of information submitted to the FDA regarding the authorization of emergency use or licensing of all COVID-19 vaccines

Last month, the FDA asked a court to allow the FDA to release just 500 pages per month to the public. This after receiving a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from Public Health and Medical Professionals (PHMPT) -- a group of 30 scientists and medical professionals from UCLA, Brown University, Yale University, and international institutions. The FDA denied expedited processing of PHMPT's request, prompting that organization to file a lawsuit against the FDA. It was in a hearing over that lawsuit when the FDA made its request for 500 pages per month.

"The FDA's only priority should be the health and safety of consumers. The agency has compromised its integrity by delaying information that belongs to the public. Since the Biden administration is hell-bent on forcing these vaccine mandates on us, the public has every right to know how this vaccine was approved, especially in such a short amount of time," Rep. Norman responded in a statement. "After all, the FDA managed to consider all 329,000 pages of data and grant emergency approval of the Pfizer vaccine within just 108 days. So it's hard to rationalize why it now needs 55 years to fully release that information to the public."

Speaking last week on American Family Radio about the 500 pages per month request, host Walker Wildmon called it completely laughable.

"They released about 90 pages the other day," noted Wildmon. "And in this report dated December 1, 2020 through February 28, 2021, there were a total of 42,086 case reports containing 158,893 adverse events. 1,223 died."

In addition to U.S. data, there is also information from the U.K., Italy, Germany, France, and Portugal.
