Informed consent impossible with the mysterious ingredient in a Pfizer vaccine vial

Physicians For Informed Consent (PIC), a group of American doctors and scientists advocating informed consent for vaccines, recently posted a document on their Instagram profile from the Food and Drug Administration stating that the anti-COVID jabs from Pfizer/Comirnaty contain an unknown ingredient.

Table 2 shows that 0.45 ml of an undisclosed excipient is part of the composition of the diluted vaccine solution. Since the total solution in a multi-dose vial measures 2.25 ml, this excipient makes up 20 percent of the solution and potentially 20 percent of each vaccine dose.

The unspecified ingredient is also not mentioned in the package insert for the vaccine. If people do not know the description of an ingredient in an FDA-approved vaccine, how is that informed consent?

The Pulse contacted the FDA to ask about this mysterious ingredient, but has yet to receive an answer.



The document is from August 23, 2021. Perhaps this mystery ingredient is disclosed somewhere else, and just not within this document.

In simple terms, throughout the document “(b) (4)” shows up in a number of areas that are redacted. One of the ingredients has been redacted. Perhaps it has been redacted to protect proprietary processes. But can a company protect ingredients and still offer a product under informed consent?

The Pulse has contacted the FDA to inquire about why this redaction appears. We will update this article when/if we receive a response from them. Perhaps the FDA has a good explanation for lack of transparency, we will see when we receive a response. Be sure to sign up to our email list to be notified as well.

Regardless of what choice you make with regards to COVID vaccines, we all have a right to know what the vaccines are made of and what we are injecting into our own body. This is key in the process of informed consent.
