FDA's court-man­dat­ed re­lease of Pfiz­er Covid-19 vac­cine doc­u­ments con­tin­ues to turn over few sur­pris­es

A Texas court loss for the FDA has tied up the agency’s FOIA of­fice for months, as it must re­lease hun­dreds of thou­sands of doc­u­ments linked to the FDA’s re­view of Pfiz­er’s li­censed Covid-19 vac­cine. But so far, the re­leas­es have been more noise than sig­nal.

The first two doc­u­ment drops from this month and March from the group that won the suit, known as the Pub­lic Health and Med­ical Pro­fes­sion­als for Trans­paren­cy, have of­fered few new de­tails on the safe­ty or the ef­fi­ca­cy of the Pfiz­er vac­cine, as more than 300 mil­lion dos­es have now been ad­min­is­tered in the US, ac­cord­ing to the CDC.
