After finding mysterious white floating contaminants in five unused vials of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine (the safety profile of which is presently being reexamined by an FDA advisory board) Pfizer has managed to convince Japanese health authorities that the particles are “safe”.
Apparently, the vials containing the white floating matter all belong to the same Pfizer vaccine lot (No. FF5357), said the cities of Sagamihara, and Kamakura, and Sakai, according to the Kyodo News agency. The vaccines were discovered in different areas, and vaccine lots can often number in the hundreds of thousands of jabs. Local health authorities asked that Pfizer “review” the substances in the vials, though they didn’t ask that shots from the same lot be suspended.
Meanwhile, back in the US, the Washington Post just reported – in an “exclusive” scoop likely spoon-fed to its journalists – that the administration is planning to buy hundreds of millions of additional doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech jab to donate to less fortunate countries from around the world. The announcement is expected to be made around the start of next week’s United Nations General Assembly meeting, though the details haven’t yet been finalized.
