What a Despicable, Ruthless Bunch of Evil Scoundrels! Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson Pressured South Africa Into Implementing Provisions That Shielded the Companies From Claims Over COVID-19 Vaccine Injuries, Newly Disclosed Documents Show
Pfizer, J&J Pressured South Africa Into Shielding Companies From COVID Vaccine Injury Claims – Documents Additional Documents are Expected to be Released Under the Court Order Later This Month
By Zachary Stieber September 7, 2023
Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson pressured South Africa into implementing provisions that shielded the companies from claims over COVID-19 vaccine injuries, newly disclosed documents show.
Pfizer made the implementation of indemnification and a compensation fund part of its COVID-19 vaccine contract with South Africa, according to documents obtained by the Health Justice Initiative.
One document states that South Africa was agreeing to “indemnify, defend, and hold harmless” Pfizer and its partner BioNTech, as well as their representatives, “from and against any and all suits, claims, actions, demands, losses, damages, liabilities, settlements, penalties, fines, costs and expenses” arising from claims resulting from the vaccine, including injuries.
The only exceptions were for a breach of confidentiality or fraud.
The component was “a non-negotiable” part of the agreement between the parties, the Health Justice Initiative said in an analysis of the documents.
Johnson & Johnson, meanwhile, also secured indemnification and the introduction of the compensation scheme in its contract with South Africa.
In a Feb. 23, 2021, letter, South Africa’s ministers of health and finance said that Johnson & Johnson requested the no-fault compensation scheme “to address adverse events that are suffered as a result of the administration of the vaccine.”
“It has been noted in discussions with J & J, and acknowledged by J & J, that a no-fault compensation scheme for vaccine related adverse events does not exist in South Africa, and that the available legislative mechanisms for establishing a scheme would require some time to undertake, even if the most expeditious processes available are pursued,” they wrote.
In an exhibit attached to Johnson & Johnson’s contract, officials said that the scheme would compensate people who prove a causal link between the vaccination they received and their injury, as decided by a panel of experts. Among outcomes ripe for compensation were death, injury, and disability. The level of compensation, officials said, “should be sufficient to provide long-term relief to victims.”
Officials later promulgated (pdf) regulations on April 22, 2021, establishing the scheme.
The scheme would “provide expeditious and easy access to compensation for persons who suffer harm, loss or damage as a result of vaccine injury,” the regulations stated.
Like similar schemes in other countries, including the United States, the schemes shield vaccine manufacturers from lawsuits and compensate victims with taxpayer money.
Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson did not respond to requests for comment.
“I wouldn’t say we were bullied, but we were in a catch-22 situation to save lives of South Africans against all odds,” Foster Mohale, a spokesperson for South Africa’s Department of Health, told Al Jazeera. “The department entered into these agreements to secure vaccine doses to protect the lives of South Africans against the deadly virus which claimed more than hundred thousand lives in South Africa.”
Matthew Kavanaugh, an assistant professor at Georgetown University who analyzed the contracts, said that South African officials “were at the whims of each of these companies who really exploited that opportunity.
“No kind of contract that I’ve ever signed in my life says at some point will you deliver something to us, but in whatever amount and on whatever timeline you think works for you, and in the meantime, we will agree to fully indemnify you,” added Mr. Kavanaugh, speaking on INXPrime.
Just a handful of vaccine injury claims have been paid out so far, South African Health Minister Joe Phaala said in June.
A number of side effects of the shots have been confirmed or are suspected, including blood clotting and heart inflammation. Some people have died from vaccine-induced injuries.
The contracts, handed over on orders from a court, also confirmed that Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer required South Africa to make large payments, with the condition that at least some of the money would not be refunded if no doses were delivered.
South Africa was required to make a down payment of $27.5 million within five days of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorizing Johnson & Johnson’s shot.
The down payment was not refundable “in any circumstances,” according to the contract. Other parts of the document said that a refund could be sought on grounds of willful default or in the event the vaccine was determined to be unsafe or ineffective.
South Africa agreed to pay Pfizer $40 million up front for its vaccine.
South Africa could seek a refund of 50 percent of the payment if Pfizer did not deliver doses of its vaccine.
South Africa agreed to pay Pfizer $200 million in total for 20 million doses. An amendment increased it by $100 million and 10 million doses.
The Johnson & Johnson agreement was $310 million for 31 million doses.
“In our scramble for desperately needed vaccines, South Africa was forced to hand over unimaginable sums of money for overpriced vaccines doses,” Fatima Hassan, director of Health Justice Initiative, said in a statement. “We were bullied into unfair and undemocratic terms in contracts that were totally one-sided.”
Additional documents are expected to be released under the court order later this month.

Smallpox HNewsWire: By Zachary Stieber 9/3/2023 Updated: 9/3/2023 COVID-19 cases among vaccinated seniors soared in 2021, according to newly disclosed data that was acquired by U.S. health agencies but not presented to the public. Humetrix Cloud Services was contracted by the U.S. military to analyze vaccine data. The company performed a fresh analysis as authorities considered in 2021 whether COVID-19 vaccine boosters were necessary amid studies finding waning vaccine effectiveness. Humetrix researchers found that the proportion of total COVID-19 cases among the seniors was increasingly comprised of vaccinated people, according to the newly disclosed documents.…
Warning From the Watchman: This Month, Satan’s Soldiers Will Be Using Food Vaccines. Specifically, They Will Be Using mRNA Vaccines in Pigs and Cows. This Month: Aren’t All of These Theories Just Conspiracies? — Inform TWITTER AKA X, Fakebook, and Dark Google of HNW Findings
HNewsWire: Here’s What Satan’s Soldier (Bill Gates) Are Selling: Vaccines have accomplished “near miracles” in the fight against infectious disease. They have consigned smallpox to history and should soon do the same for polio. By the late 1990s, an international campaign to immunize all the world’s children against Six devastating diseases were reportedly reaching 80 percent of infants (up from about 5 percent in the mid-1970s) and was reducing the annual death toll from those infections by roughly three million. Yet these victories mask tragic gaps in delivery. The 20percent of infants still missed the six vaccines-against diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), polio, measles, Tetanus, and tuberculosis-which account for about two million unnecessary deaths each year, especially in the most remote and impoverished parts of the globe. Upheavals in many developing nations now threaten to erode the essence of the recent…

SRH: “What Does It Mean to Have a Reprobate Mind?” Worthless Literally or Morally–Ask Satan Soldiers,Bill Gates, Gov. Officials, Fake Dr. Fauci, CDC, FDA, and the W.H.O The phrase “reprobate mind” is found in Romans 1:28 in reference to those whom God has rejected as godless and wicked. They “suppress the truth by their wickedness,” and it is upon these people that the wrath of God rests (Romans 1:18). The Greek word translated “reprobate” in the New Testament is adokimos, which means literally “unapproved, that is, rejected; by implication, worthless (literally or morally).” Those (Big Tech CEO’s) “resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith” (2 Timothy 3:8). The resistance to the truth because of corrupt minds. In Titus, Paul also refers to those whose works are reprobate: “They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him,…
Watchman: The Demonic Spirit of Medicine Has Been Prophesied for Thousands of Years to Be the Means by Which the Whole World Would Be Deceived by the “Merchants” Who Distribute It, Kill Shots (mRNA) to Their Own Destruction
The light of a lamp will never shine in you again. The voice of bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again. Your merchants (Pfizer, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, etc.) were the world’s great men. By your “magic spell” (pharmakeia: medicine/drugs/vaccines) all the nations were led astray. (Revelation 18:23) HNewsWire: by Brian Shilhavy Editor, Health Impact News The medical system in the United States today is on the brink of collapse. I seriously doubt that there are too many people who would question or doubt this statement. For example, 100,000 nurses have left the medical system since COVID, and 800,000 more nurses plan on quitting. (Source.) Pharmaceutical drug shortages have become so severe, that pharmacists and hospitals are now rationing medical care. (Source.) And many hospitals are now “dumping” patients on the street, because they can no…
