WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) sent a letter to the Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Dr. Francis Collins, the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the Acting Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Dr. Janet Woodcock, the Director of the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research at the FDA Dr. Peter Marks, and the Deputy Director of the Immunization Safety Office at the CDC Dr. Tom Shimabukuro regarding a letter from Dr. Patricia Lee to Drs. Peter Marks and Tom Shimabukuro detailing her first-hand account of treating patients with adverse events from the COVID-19 vaccine. The senator also raised the issue of the unresponsiveness of these federal agencies to his oversight letters.
“You sanctimoniously claim ‘to follow the science,’ yet fail to recognize natural immunity in your vaccine mandate rhetoric; continue to claim we are experiencing a ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated’ – even as evidence of breakthrough infections, hospitalizations, and deaths mount; and consistently deny vaccine injuries and ignore the vaccine injured,” the senator wrote.
