A top Pfizer international executive admitted to a European Parliament committee Tuesday that the pharmaceutical giant did not test its COVID mRNA shot for whether it could prevent transmission of the virus before it was placed on the market and then mandated in many parts of society throughout the world.

Rob Roos, a member of the European Parliament from the Netherlands, tweeted a video of his exchange with Janine Small, president of international developed markets at Pfizer.

“‘Get vaccinated for others’ was always a lie,” Roos posted. “The only purpose of the COVID passport: forcing people to get vaccinated.”

In the video, Roos asks this question of Small:

But to you, Ms. Small, I have the following short question, to which I would like to receive a clear response. I’ll speak in English so there are no misunderstandings. Was the Pfizer COVID vaccine tested on stopping the transmission of the virus before it entered the market?


If not, please say it clearly. If yes, are you willing to share the data with this committee? And I really want a straight answer – yes or no, and I’m looking forward to it. Thank you very much.

Small’s response:

Regarding the question around did we know about stopping immunization before it entered the market – no (she laughs). These, um, you know, we had to really move at the speed of science to really understand what is taking place in the market.

The member of the European Parliament called Small’s response “scandalous.”

“Millions of people worldwide felt forced to get vaccinated because of the myth that you ‘do it for others,’” he asserted. “Now, this turned out to be a cheap lie. This should be exposed. Please share this video.”

Roos elaborated on the extent to which government leaders used the claim that the COVID mRNA vaccine could block transmission of the virus to induce guilt in those who have been hesitant to take the shot.

“If you don’t get vaccinated, you’re anti-social,” Roos said in the video. “This is what the Dutch Prime Minister and Health Minister told us.”

“You don’t get vaccinated just for yourself, but also for others – you do it for all of society,” he continued. “That’s what they said. Today, this turns out to be complete nonsense.”

Roos added Small’s admission “removes the entire legal basis for the COVID passport. The COVID passport that led to massive institutional discrimination as people lost access to essential parts of society.”

“I find this to be shocking – even criminal,” he asserted.

The extent to which, in the United States, the Biden administration has collaborated with Big Pharma and Big Tech to push for vaccine compliance has become increasingly apparent as more healthcare leaders who have warned of the safety issues and lack of effectiveness of the mRNA shots have been blocked from social media platforms.

Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo, for example, was blocked by Twitter, and then restored, over last weekend, after he posted his office’s analysis of a study that found an “there is an 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years old within 28 days following mRNA vaccination.”

“Individuals with preexisting cardiac conditions, such as myocarditis and pericarditis, should take particular caution when considering vaccination and discuss with their health care provider,” the guidance states.

“With a high level of global immunity to COVID-19, the benefit of vaccination is likely outweighed by this abnormally high risk of cardiac-related death among men in this age group,” the statement continues.

“The State Surgeon General now recommends against the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines for males ages 18-39 years old,” the guidance asserts.

Twitter initially blocked Ladapo’s tweet, saying the information presented in it is “misleading.”

Cardiologist, internist, and pioneer of early treatment for COVID Dr. Peter McCullough was also suspended from Twitter on October 7. McCullough has since joined with co-author John Leake at a new Substack column.
