President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton said that recent documents obtained by the watchdog group reveal that the United States was involved in a secret deal with the United Kingdom to keep information about adverse reactions to the COVID-19 vaccine hidden from the public.
“They were talking about anaphylaxis responses and adverse events related to the vaccine,” Fitton said on the Wednesday edition of the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show. “They were sharing information with their UK counterparts.”
Judicial Watch put out a press release last week, linking to the 57 pages of redacted documents.
“Judicial Watch announced today it received 57 pages of heavily redacted records from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that show, just two days prior to FDA approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, a discussion between U.S. and UK health regulators regarding the COVID shot and ‘anaphylaxis,’ with the regulators emphasizing their ‘mutual confidentiality agreement,'” the press release reads.
Fitton said that the information revealed is troubling to say the least.
“Why are we engaged in a secret deal to keep secret information about adverse events related to the vaccines?” he asked. “I just think it’s troubling. The documents speak for themselves.”
Fitton added that this isn’t the first time something like this has happened.
“It’s not the first time we’ve seen this,” he said. “Back when COVID first emerged, we uncovered documents showing there was an agreement with the Chinese where they dictated terms of secrecy and an agreement in exchange for our ability to go over there. And it looks like in order to look at what information they had on the virus at the time. Obviously, they weren’t terribly forthcoming.”
