Fraud, false claims about products, safety cover-ups and good old-fashioned bribery; the shocking track record of the companies now making your vaccines.
Pfizer $2.3 Billion; GSK $3.75 Billion; Johnson & Johnson $2.2 Billion fines since 2009.
The very Pharmaceuticals giants behind Covid Vaccines have all been fined Billions of Dollars for making false claims for previous products as well as bribing doctors and government officials to promote them. Have these companies suddenly turned over a new leaf, found a moral conscience and are finally putting patient's health above profits? Or should we learn from their criminal past?
After we've shown you the evidence, you decide.
Pfizer: fined $2.3 Billion for making false claims and bribery.
In 2009 Pfizer was fined $2.3 Billion Dollars by US authorities after it was found guilty of making false claims about its drugs Bextra, Geodon, Zyvox, Lyrica. It was also prosecuted for giving 'kickbacks' and bribes to thousands of doctors and healthcare officials in the US as part of the massive fraud. At the time it was the single biggest payout in US history for a drug company fraud. Since which time, it's been exceeded by GSK:
GlaxoSmithKline: fined a total of $3.75 Billion for making false claims, safety issues, and bribery.
In 2012 GSK was fined a total of $3 Billion Dollars ($1B criminal, $2B civil) for an Off-label promotion and failure to disclose safety data. They were also found guilty of paying kickbacks to physicians, making false and misleading statements concerning the safety of a drug: Avandia, and reporting false best prices and underpaying rebates owed under the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program.
in 2010 GSK had been fined $750 million for poor manufacturing practices that lead to safety issues they failed to declare. A number of drugs were found to be defective including Kytril, Bactroban, Paxil CR, Avandamet and US authorities prosecuted the drugs company under the False Claims Act.
Johnson and Johnson: fined $2.2 Billion for making false claims and bribery.
in 2013 Johnson and Johnson were fined $2.2 Billion Dollars for making false claims about three of their products as well as giving kickbacks to doctors and health officials. Following a two year criminal investigation the drugs giant was prosecuted under the False Claims Act.
If you think that having an AstraZeneca vaccine means you've escape harm then sorry to disappoint you, but AstraZeneca are just as corrupt as their competitors.
AstraZeneca: fined $520 million for making false claims and bribery.
in 2010 AstraZeneca was found guilty for making false claims about their product Seroquel and paid out $520 million dollars. Previously they paid out a similar amount for Medicare Fraud a crime favoured by several drugs companies.
These are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Pharmaceutical companies criminality. Some of the other pharmaceuticals giants who have been found guilty of fraud, covering up safety issues and bribery are:
Novartis 2010 -fined $423 million for false claims and bribery
Eli Lilly 2009 - fined $1.4 Billion for false claims and bribery
Amgen 2012 - fined $762 Million for false claims and bribery
Allergan 2010 - fined $600 Million for false claims about product Botox
Novartis 2010 - fined $423 Million for false claims and bribery
This is just the tip of the iceberg, billions have been paid out by pharmaceuticals companies in the US alone for making false claims about drugs, covering up safety issues and bribing the medical profession.

The very same drugs companies who are now making wildly unsubstantiated claims about a are deadly virus and a life-saving vaccine are the very same drugs companies who have spent the last decade acting fraudulently , selling us drugs we didn't need, for illnesses they'd made up all to make a profit. In many cases, the drugs were dangerous but the evidence was covered up or ignored, purely to protect profits.
Still unconvinced? Well, consider this: In 2009 the same companies created the Swine Flu pandemic, all so they could sell you the cure. It very nearly worked too:
