Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed a lawsuit on behalf of the state against Pfizer. The lawsuit claims that Pfizer intentionally misrepresented the efficacy of its COVID-19 vaccine.

Pfizer asserted 95% efficacy for its vaccine because it offers “relative risk reduction” for recipients. However, Paxton argues that this claim is misleading, pointing out that the same study, which cited the vaccine’s efficacy, found less than 1% “absolute risk reduction” in vaccine recipients.

Paxton claims that the pharmaceutical company misrepresented the vaccine’s effectiveness in the interest of larger profits. The company’s total revenue more than doubled following FDA approval of its COVID vaccines, with the portion attributed to COVID-19 immunizations exceeding $74 billion in the past two years.

Also in the lawsuit, Paxton accuses Pfizer of being part of a larger effort to censor social media posts that voiced skepticism over the company’s vaccines.

“In summary, Pfizer intentionally misrepresented the efficacy of its COVID-19 vaccine and censored persons who threatened to disseminate the truth in order to facilitate fast adoption of the product and expand its commercial opportunity,” the lawsuit states.

“We are pursuing justice for the people of Texas, many of whom were coerced by tyrannical vaccine mandates to take a defective product sold by lies,” Paxton said in a press release.

In a statement, Pfizer said its representations about the vaccine have been “accurate and science-based,” and that it believed the Texas lawsuit had no merit.
