Question for written answer E-002296/2021
to the Commission
Guido Reil (ID)
The contracts which the Commission signed with Pfizer and Moderna have been leaked.
According to the De Brandt CV / SC law office, they are unlawful and therefore invalid. In particular, the producers are not obliged to guarantee the effectiveness of their vaccines. They do not have to assume liability for damage caused by vaccinations. The liability falls entirely to the Member States.
- 1.What legal opinions did the Commission obtain for the analysis of the contracts prior to their signature, and from whom did it obtain them?
- 2.How will the Commission ensure that the vaccines are effective and safe, given that the producers refuse to do so?
- 3.What legal measures will the Commission take in the light of this new legal opinion?
