Pfizer Safety Document and Remdesivir

Chuck Schooner (Account suspended) made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Chuck Schooner (Account suspended) to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Chuck Schooner (Account suspended)

Dear Ministry of Health,

Please state if the following report was used in the assessment to approve the Pfizer/Biontech vaccine when Medsafe first approved this gene therapy/vaccine.


If the report was not available can you please state if Medsafe requested any real time safety reports from Pfizer in advance of approving this gene therapy.

By the time Medsafe approved this gene therapy the vaccine had been widely used globally and so there would be real time statistics. If not, did you rely on Pfizer trial information only?

Medsafe then approved the gene therapy for two more years and stated Pfizer had met a number of safety conditions following their provisional approval. Please provide all reports/evidence that Pfizer provided Medsafe that prove that they met their safety conditions that were part of the first gazette notice.

The above report was dated early 2021 - please state if Pfizer had provided this to Medsafe at all when they have completed any of their due diligence in assessing this gene therapy.

Please state if on the release of the documents by the FDA has Medsafe requested all of the Pfizer documents that have been released - please provide a list of all the Pfizer documents that Medsafe have relied upon in approving this gene therapy.

This document is now available and if you approve this in children who will ultimately be responsible for illnesses in children? Medsafe or Ministry of Health.

Were Medsafe responsible for approving Remdesivir as a Covid-19 treatment.

Is Medsafe/Ministry of Health using Remdesivir as a Covid-19 treatment?
What studies were used to say Remdesivir was safe?

An Ebola study using Remdesivir showed that it was pulled from use in a 12 month trial after six months because it killed 54% of the trial subjects it used.

The Remdesiver study also showed that patients were having the following side effects

- 10 day treatment of Covid-19 showed 23% had serious adverse events were organ dysfunction syndrome, septic shock, acute kidney failure and kidney failure.

Please state how many Covid patients have been treated with Remdesiver in New Zealand and how many of them had the above side effects and died. It appears Remdesiver will kill you. Did Medsafe do any due diligence for Remdesiver as it will likely poison patients.

Yours faithfully,

Chuck Schooner

Chuck, if you do a search on Remdesivir here, you will find several earlier requests relating to this drug. One of them indicated that 25 people had at that time been treated with it in Auckland during the current outbreak.

The current costs (which are exorbitant) have also been disclosed, although exact details (number of vials and total cost) were supposedly to be kept secret from the public.

Thanks Victoria
Do we know the health of those people treated? The trials for this drug were not good. It got stopped after six months and was shutting down the body as well which are conveniently now some of the issues with Covid-19
