Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Pfizer accused of ‘sabotaging’ AstraZeneca jab”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Teasers for a Channel 4 Dispatches investigative report, shown Monday, say that a Pfizer presentation described AstraZeneca’s vaccine against Covid-19 as unsafe for patients with compromised immune systems and potentially causing cancer. The speech took place in Canada sometime last year, but it was unclear whether it was a one-off event or if the speaker made the claim multiple times. 

Pfizer reacted by saying the presentation was “wrongly attributed” to them and was done by a third party. 

“We refute any suggestion that Pfizer has sought to undermine others’ scientific endeavors,” a company spokesman told the Daily Mail. “Our priority has always been getting high-quality, well-tolerated and effective vaccines to patients all over the world as quickly as possible and to help put an end to this deadly pandemic.”

The spokesperson explained that Pfizer had paid a third-party agency to create an educational program about vaccines in Canada, after the government in Ottawa approved Pfizer’s product for use in the country.

Channel 4 also said that Pfizer’s manufacturing costs were just 76 pence per jab ($1.01) but the company was charging the UK government £22 ($29.17) per dose, in what would amount to a 3,000% markup.
