Australia’s drug regulator, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), has no idea how many of the adverse events reported to its database are actually caused by the Covid vaccines.
Despite refusing to answer straightforward questions about how many reports it has assessed for causality, the TGA has confirmed that it does not have the information required to properly assess all adverse events (AEs) reported to its safety surveillance database, the DAEN (Database of Adverse Event Notifications).
Yet, there is a widespread perception that the TGA assesses all reports, particularly of serious AEs, for causality.
This is the stated belief of Country Medical Director of Pfizer Australia and New Zealand, Dr. Krishan Thiru, who told a Senate Committee Hearing on August 3rd 2023, “The TGA carefully analyses all of the reports that it receives and makes a determination if there is a link to the therapeutic product or not.”
But by the TGA’s own admission, this is not the case.
