Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Nov. 30 sued Pfizer, alleging the company misrepresented how efficacious its COVID-19 vaccine was.
“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,” Mr. Paxton, a Republican, said in a statement. “The facts are clear. Pfizer did not tell the truth about their COVID-19 vaccines.”
Pfizer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The trial was aimed at determining how many participants contracted COVID-19 with symptoms after receiving a vaccine, not COVID-19 overall.
