(LifeSiteNews) – The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) never actually approved the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine currently available in the United States, Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin told Fox News host Tucker Carlson this week.
“These mandates are driven by the bait and switch of the FDA that we now have an approved vaccine. We do not have an approved vaccine in America,” Johnson said Monday on Tucker Carlson Tonight. “They did it for the Comirnaty – it’s available, I guess, in Europe, but the Pfizer vaccine available in the U.S. is not FDA-approved – it’s got an emergency use authorization (EUA).”
The Republican senator added that he sent a letter to the FDA days after the agency approved the Pfizer COVID vaccine branded as Comirnaty, which is “legally distinct” from Pfizer’s jab that remains under EUA in the United States, according to the FDA.
An FDA fact sheet for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine released in August described the two jabs as “legally distinct with certain differences that do not impact safety or effectiveness” and said the vaccines “can be used interchangeably.”
Pfizer representatives have said that those distinctions refer to manufacturing differences, like the use of different sites or materials from different suppliers, though not formulation.
It's official: Joe Biden has announced that his Administration will be forcing COVID vaccinations on nearly 1/3rd of American citizens, blatantly disregarding the personal objections of millions of people and moving America ever closer towards a medical dictatorship.
We cannot stand for this unprecedented overreach, and we will not submit to Biden's tyrannical public coercion efforts.
Please SIGN this urgent petition informing the President that you will NOT comply with these unconstitutional vaccine mandate orders issued by the Biden Administration, and that elected officials should act in their capacity to block these intrusive demands.
On Thursday, September 9th, Joe Biden announced the latest round of federal orders meant to further coerce large swaths of the public into getting the COVID vaccine -- many against their will.
While the legal standing of these measures is, at best, dubious, the Biden Administration appears more ready than ever to gut our individual rights and practically erase medical autonomy in our country.
This latest escalation in overreach was announced via a televised speech in which Biden outlined a new "six-point plan" that includes far more than just six avenues to achieve mass medical compliance.
Among the most egregious new federal mandates are the following:
- A requirement that all private businesses employing more than 100 people mandate their workers get the Covid-19 vaccine or submit to weekly testing (to be implemented by way of a new Department of Labor rule)
- A requirement that all federal employees and federal contractors get the COVID vaccine
- A requirement that all healthcare workers in facilities that receive reimbursement from Medicare and/or Medicaid (an estimated 17 million) get the Covid-19 vaccine without an alternative testing option
- A requirement that all Head Start teachers get the COVID vaccine
- A federal effort to lobby states to implement vaccine mandates for all school employees, and require regular testing of all students and school staff
- A federal effort to lobby entertainment venues to require proof of vaccination or testing in order to grant entry to the public
- A continuation of mask mandates on all federal properties and during interstate travel (i.e. planes, trains, buses)
All in all, these new vaccine mandates, which will go into effect within the coming weeks, will affect an estimated 100 million American workers -- 2/3rds of the entire workforce!
And, according to an administration official, violations of these unconstitutional requirements could result in fines of up to $14,000.
While this is clearly a political ploy on the part of the Joe Biden and his team of power-hungry Washington insiders to shift the focus from their disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the American public knows better: After nearly a year and a half's worth of arbitrary, ever-changing, and unconstitutional government mandates in response to the COVID outbreak, it was always a given that the Biden Administration would ramp things up even further when it behooved them.
And now, it would seem that time has officially come.
"This is not about freedom or personal choice," Biden uttered in his remarks, confirming his administration's blatant dismissal of all Americans' right(s) to accept or decline the experimental Covid-19 vaccine.
This is a stunning reversal from Biden's declaration last December that "I don’t think [the vaccine] should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory."
In fact, Biden even confirmed his intention to flout states' rights in the process, warning that "If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way."
These are not the words of an "empathetic" leader; these are the words of an aspiring dictator. And, for the time being, the only way to stop Joe Biden's tyranny is through mass noncompliance.
As we've said from the beginning, science, basic logic, and common sense should dictate policy regarding COVID and the Delta variant.
But Joe Biden and the federal government have long abandoned those principles throughout this crisis, culminating into this disturbing yet inevitable flurry of intrusive vaccine mandates that use people's jobs, individual autonomy, and livelihood as leverage.
This assault on our individual rights, private businesses, and American workers cannot be tolerated, and the easiest way to combat these unlawful orders is to just say NO.
Please SIGN and SHARE this most important petition letting Joe Biden know that you will NOT comply with the unconstitutional medical demands being made by this administration, and that action should be taken to block any intrusive action against working Americans and private employers.

“There is no doubt that the FDA’s action will lead to more vaccine mandates and increased pressure on those currently choosing not to get vaccinated,” Sen. Johnson stated in his letter to FDA chief Janet Woodcock, dated August 26.
“Is there sufficient supply in the U.S. of the Comirnaty vaccine to ensure that those being vaccinated under mandates will be receiving the FDA-approved version? Or is it more likely (or certain) that they will be vaccinated using the vaccine administered under the reissued EUA?”
“I look forward to receiving a response to this limited number of questions no later than August 30, 2021,” he told Woodcock. “Your answers are crucial to Americans who will now be forced into making potentially life-altering decisions in response to the employer, military and educational mandates that your August 23, 2021 letters have triggered.”
“If there is insufficient supply of Comirnaty vaccines for those succumbing to the coercion of mandates, isn’t the FDA de facto endorsing vaccine mandates utilizing EUA vaccines?”
Johnson told Tucker Carlson that the FDA has still not responded to his questions. “Why are they basically lying to the American public? That’s a serious question to be asked,” he said, adding that “we are destroying our health care system with these [vaccine] mandates.”
The Biden administration has repeatedly used the FDA’s approval of Comirnaty to push mandatory COVID-19 vaccination.
“Of the nearly 80 million eligible Americans who have not gotten vaccinated, many said they were waiting for approval from the Food and Drug Administration — the FDA. Well, last month, the FDA granted that approval,” Joe Biden said in an announcement last month of vaccine mandates for all federal workers and for large private businesses.
“So, the time for waiting is over.”
