Children’s Health Defense filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for withholding critical documents related to the agency’s safety signals for the experimental COVID-19 jab.
The safety data is reportedly related to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) database.
In the lawsuit, Children’s Health Defense claims the FDA violated the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for refusing to provide the analysis of the VAERS data.
Unsurprisingly, the FDA reportedly said the records are fully exempt “from disclosure under FOIA,” The Defender reports.

The FDA is supposed to regulate products to determine their safety for the American public.
They’ve failed miserably at that job and have been captured by the pharmaceutical industry.
The agency ignored obvious safety signals in the VAERS database that has been available to the public since the COVID-19 jab rollout.

Also, the FDA actively smeared cheap medications such as ivermectin.
Remember when the agency said ‘you’re not a horse?’

If the FDA wasn’t corrupt and incompetent, they would’ve never allowed the experimental COVID-19 shots to hit the market.
They deserve to be sued into oblivion, permanently disbanded, and investigated for crimes against humanity.
As Steve Kirsch pointed out, “the agencies are so corrupt.”
FDA Sued for Withholding COVID-19 Vaccine Safety Analyses!!! Woo Hoo! They withheld the death Safety signal for over two years and are still pretending it hasn’t triggered even after admitting it did trigger in a FOIA request. The agencies are so corrupt.https://t.co/hjXQnyrFtl

The Defender shared additional details about the lawsuit:
CHD requested these data, along with records of the FDA’s communications with the CDC’s Immunization Safety Office regarding the CDC’s own COVID-19 vaccine safety monitoring.
The FDA on Oct. 4, 2022, denied CHD’s FOIA request in its entirety.
The FDA cited a FOIA exemption that protects inter- and intra-agency communications “consisting of opinions, recommendations, and policy discussions within the deliberative process of FDA, from which factual information is not reasonably segregable.”
The FDA claimed that because “the information also contains a discussion of legal and policy matters and falls within the attorney work product and attorney-client privileges as enunciated by the Supreme Court,” the information was exempt from the FOIA request.
CHD’s administrative appeal, filed in November 2022, addressed the FDA’s failure to explain why it would be impossible to segregate and disclose non-exempt information, what basis it had for claiming attorney-client privilege or whether the FDA had even searched for the records.
The FDA indicated that a response to those concerns would take 9 to 12 months.
In a separate-but-related FOIA request submitted in September 2022, CHD requested the records from the Empirical Bayesian data mining underlying the analysis published by FDA and CDC scientists in May 2022, in their death reporting rates article.
The article analyzed death reports in the VAERS database using the methods laid out in the operating procedures document, demonstrating the agencies are in fact doing this analysis are not making the data public.
After the FDA allegedly failed to disclose this safety data, Children’s Health Defense wants the courts to force the agency to comply with the FOIA request.
“The public must have truthful, complete information about the risks and benefits of these drugs, and others,” CHD President Mary Holland told The Defender.
Kim Witczak, co-founder of Woodymatters, a nonprofit that advocates for a stronger FDA and drug safety system, said at the time that the agency’s refusal to provide the analyses was not acceptable.
“The secrecy is unacceptable for an agency that said it is transparent with the public about vaccine safety,” Witczak said.
Lawmakers, including Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), have also questioned why the records were not released.
The FDA and CDC only publicly acknowledge a small number of adverse events as being definitely caused by or potentially caused by the messenger RNA shots, including myocarditis, or heart inflammation.
