A whistleblower charging that a contract research company helping to carry out Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine trial last fall falsified data has responded to her former employer’s accusation that she is lying.
Article by Art Moore from our news partners at WND News Center.
Brook Jackson’s company, Ventavia Research Group, released a statement of denial, claiming “no part of her job responsibilities concerned the clinical trials at issue,” reported investigative journalist Maryanne Demasi.
But Jackson’s lawyer has served Ventavia with a cease-and-desist letter, pointing out she has documentation showing she was hired as a regional director by Ventavia on Sept. 7, 2020, to oversee the operations, recruitment and quality assurance of the company’s clinical trial sites. She came to the job with nearly two decades of experience in clinical trial co-ordination and management.
Leaked documents and the testimony of two former Ventavia employees corroborate claims by Jackson that were published earlier this month by the esteemed British Medical Journal. Jackson charged that during the pivotal Phase III trial, Ventavia falsified data, unblinded patients, employed inadequately trained vaccinators and was slow to follow up on reported adverse events.
Jackson said that after her company ignored her complaints, she emailed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. On the same day she sent the email, she was fired.
After the report in The BMJ, the FDA and Australia’s counterpart TGA released statements declaring their full confidence in the Pfizer vaccine. That’s when Ventavia released a statement claiming Jackson had nothing to do with the Pfizer trials. Her attorney Robert Barnes served Ventavia with a letter demanding a public retraction and formal apology.
“This statement is false,” Barnes wrote. “This statement impugns the reputation of my client, Brook Jackson, and falsely implies she publicly misrepresented her work on the clinical trials.”

Jackson told Demasi there were multiple examples of “laboratory processing logs” filled in by staff that contained glaring inconsistencies and anomalies in specimen handling. Jackson has a document with a list of Ventavia’s outstanding “action items,” which include discussions with trial coordinators about serious breaches of data integrity.
She described a chaotic work environment embroiled with so many egregious issues that she called for an immediate halt to the recruitment of trial participants.
Finally, in September 2020, Ventavia agreed with Jackson and asked staff to compile a list of “common” quality control breaches to be reviewed. And the recruiting was paused. But text messages obtained by Jackson indicate Ventavia did not inform Pfizer of the reason for the pause, as required, and engaged in a cover-up.
“I feel like we need to say we met our committed number [of participants],” said one senior staffer. “Make it like it’s no big deal. I wouldn’t say one negative thing. I would keep it that we are in a perfect place.”
Jackson says the work environment became hostile when she raised her concerns with Ventavia. She was fired on the day she filed her formal complaint with the FDA, Sept. 25, 2020.
Demasi reports that despite the credible evidence of clinical trial misconduct, the FDA did not investigate the site. Jackson told Demasi the problems were pervasive and persistent, putting patients at risk and likely impacting data integrity.
“When you look at the whole picture, can we really trust the data that is coming from Ventavia? No,” she said.
Jackson noted that in the early stages of “Operation Warp Speed” under the Trump administration, there was a rush to recruit participants and get the trials underway in record time.

“There was no doubt that speed and haste were driving enrollments at Ventavia,” she said. “Pfizer’s race to be number one was driving enrollments, offering bonuses if they met enrollment expectations.”
Jackson said it raises the question, “If it happened in Ventavia, where else did it happen?”
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
