Freedom of Information Act


February 28, 2024 – Today, Defending the Republic (DTR) is releasing nearly 5,600 pages of animal studies submitted by Moderna to the FDA in support of the approval of its COVID-19 vaccine “Spikevax.”

This is the most significant and largest release of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine animal studies to-date, and is the result of DTR’s successful Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) case against the FDA.

These documents build upon the substantial public releases of the Moderna documents already provided by DTR after it sued the FDA. In July 2023, DTR released nearly 15,000 pages of documents – the first significant disclosure of data from Moderna’s COVID-19 clinical trials – which revealed the causes of deaths, serious adverse events, and neurological disorders potentially associated with Moderna’s vaccine. DTR provided thousands more pages in October of 2023 which included a listing of adverse events for thousands of clinical participants who received doses of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine.

You inspire us, and you make it possible for us to continue to fight the battles others fear and to fight back against all the lawfare directed against us. They want to destroy us so there will be no one remaining to stand up for you. We fight relentlessly every day to make sure that does not happen.

And in December 2023, DTR published thousands more pages of Moderna documents that revealed Moderna’s statement to the FDA that it had “no plan to produce BLA [biologics license application] SPIKEVAX labelled material.”

The animal studies released today focus on the effects of the Moderna vaccine on male and female rats. And they are important for a number of reasons: they provide context to the FDA’s ultimate approval of Spikevax, they show the flawed methodology of Moderna’s testing, and they demonstrate the serious adverse events to the animals following vaccination.

For example, the studies reveal changes to the lymph nodes, kidneys, livers, and lungs of test subjects soon after receiving the Moderna vaccine. These concerning side-effects were present in a number of the vaccine groups, as seen in this table from a 6-week (4 dose) study:

Similar troubling results were found in a 1-month (3 dose) vaccine study:

We encourage you to read through, and share, these important studies. And we ask that you support our ongoing efforts to expose government corruption, our fight for government transparency through FOIA litigation, our class-action lawsuits to reinstate and compensate military service members who were wrongfully terminated for rejecting the Biden Administration’s unlawful COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
