Pfizer and Moderna don't really own their vaccines, says Children's Health Defense founder.
Children’s Health Defense founder Robert F. Kennedy Jr. claimed that, contrary to popular belief, the vaccines were not originally produced by the pharmaceutical companies.
“There were 138 companies that were involved in manufacturing and distributing the vaccine. They’re all military contractors. The Pentagon and the National Security Agency ran the entire pandemic response,” Kennedy Jr. said on “The Kim Iversen Show” earlier this month.
“Pfizer and Moderna don’t really own those vaccines. They slap their labels on them, but it was a Pentagon project,” he added.
Government documents confirm Kennedy Jr.’s claim.
From the Congressional Research Service on the vaccine in March 2021:
Operation Warp Speed (OWS) is an interagency partnership between the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Department of Defense (DOD) that coordinates federal efforts to accelerate the development, acquisition, and distribution of COVID-19 medical countermeasures. Collaborating HHS components include the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA).
Medical device R&D executive Sasha Latypova further explained in a lecture the defense contracts that were used to produce and distribute the COVID-19 mRNA vaccine.
