Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) and several colleagues recently sent a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services and the Health Resources and Services Administration calling for the establishment a COVID-19 vaccine injury table, as required by the PREP Act.
Rep. Gohmert issued the following statement on the matter:
“It is asinine that despite the fact that our government and pharmaceutical companies fast-tracked the production of an experimental vaccine and forced millions of Americans to take it or risk losing their jobs or freedom, that a vaccine injury table disclosing known side effects of the vaccine as required by law has yet to be developed for the COVID-19 shot. Even when someone suffers precisely a disastrous side effect known to be caused by a specific vaccine, the government is making it as difficult as possible to be compensated for the damages caused by the vaccine. That vaccine just happened to have made its maker more billions of dollars than any medication in history.
“Unfortunately, the government not only paid billions for the vaccines that did not and do not stop the spread of COVID-19 nor prevent the disease as we were told, but current US law protects the makers from liability for any damages that they knew would be caused. Current law requires the US government to set up a table of injuries known to be caused by a mandated vaccine. Apparently, however, there must be concerns that when the American people find out that side effects were caused by the vaccines that they were told did not cause such conditions, people will be livid at the purveyor of the misinformation, as well as the damage and death.
“The ultimate result is people who followed their government’s demand, took the vaccine only to suffer terrible side effects, have been shut out from remuneration from pharmaceuticals with their new multi-billions of dollars in profit. Further, the government that forced the vaccination will not follow their own law and disclose the actual damages caused by the vaccines so that damaged Americans can get some help with financial damages resulting from the vaccines.
“It is imperative that Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) follow the law and immediately create a vaccine injury table for the COVID-19 vaccines so that Americans can have some proper recourse for this dangerous shot that so many were coerced to obtain.”
Representatives Bill Posey (FL-8), Mary Miller (IL-15), Gregory Steube (FL-17) and Randy Weber (TX-14) also signed the letter.
