Jon K asks; now that the FDA has licensed the Pfizer Covid vaccine can my employer make it mandatory for continued employment?
Currently the various vaccines being used were produced under the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) act which are classified as experimental under U. S law and subject to the Nuremberg Code as well as federal regulations that state that no one can force a human being to participate in an experiment without full disclosure and their agreement to participate. EUA approved vaccines carry with them a liability shield authorized under the 2005 Public Readiness and Preparedness Act which holds vaccine manufacturers immune from liability. The recent Food and Drug Administration (FDA) licensing of the Pfizer Comirnaty vaccine removes any protection from the 2005 act and makes them liable should anyone be harmed from taking the vaccine. While employers, state and government agencies can now require vaccination to keep your job because of the FDA’s licensing of this particular vaccine, it also puts Pfizer at increased risk should someone be harmed. Undoubtedly Pfizer will lobby congress heavily to not be held liable. That all being said, apparently there is not enough of the Pfizer Comirnaty vaccine available to vaccinate everyone, so you may be offered the current vaccine authorized under EUA. The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines have as of yet not been licensed. If you are asked to get vaccinated it is recommended that you ask to see the vial to see if it is the Pfizer Comirnaty vaccine. If it isn’t you have the right to refuse and your employer may not use this as grounds to discriminate against you as it is against U. S law and the Nuremburg Code. If it is, and you choose to get the vaccination, remember that Pfizer can be held liable similar to what Monsanto is now experiencing for their Round Up disaster.
