Thailand’s National Health Security Office as of March 8 paid the equivalent of $45.65 million to settle COVID-19 vaccine injury compensation claims under a system that is relatively easy to navigate, and quick to pay.Thailand Paid $45 Million in COVID Vaccine Injury Claims, While U.S. Has Paid $0
Peter Doshi, a senior editor at The BMJ, and Retsef Levi, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, told a panel of experts the COVID vaccines’ trial data doesn’t support the narrative that the vaccines are safe and effective.We’re Not in a ‘Pandemic of the Unvaccinated,’ Peter Doshi Explains During COVID Panel
“I see no need to rush the FDA approval process for any of the three COVID-19 vaccines. Expediting the process appears to only serve the political purpose of imposing and enforcing vaccine mandates,” Mr. Johnson wrote in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times.
U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy told “Fox News Sunday” that moving the Pfizer vaccine from “emergency” to “full approval” would make mandates more appealing.
Former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, who is on the Pfizer board of directors, also said the full approval will prompt more vaccine mandates.
Just hours before the Pfizer vaccine news became public, Gottlieb appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box to explain that any vaccine will need to be administered on an annual basis.
Some more notes that I made, about Gottlieb and the coronavirus, in March 2020.

A week later, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s Media Watch debunked the story with a roundup of reporting on the many holes in Markson’s work. According to its report, GNews was one of the earliest reported adopters of the conspiracy theory based on the discredited 2015 book.
The debunk explained that “a host of China experts say the book is not outlining China’s plans for biowarfare” but rather “it’s looking at defense against Western attacks, which it claims have already started.” Media Watch also noted that the document Markson based her reporting on is a readily available book that can be purchased online.
Financial disclosure records reviewed by The Daily Poster show Johnson and his wife own a limited liability corporation, which is the kind of pass through entities that were targeted for tax cuts by Johnson’s 2017 legislation. Their LLC owns an industrial building in Oshkosh, Wisc., that is worth between $5 million and $25 million and generated as much as $1 million in income last year.
Michael Linden, executive director of the Groundwork Collaborative, noted on Twitter following Johnson’s objection that “another round of stimulus checks at $1,200 would be roughly 1/7 of the size of the Trump tax cuts which Senator Johnson happily supported.”
In a letter to Peter Marks, director of the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. asks the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to take a cautious approach in approving COVID-19 vaccines that have been developed at “warp speed.”
