Fact Check: Is there a global recall of Covid-19 vaccines?

Published on:

Quick Take

After the June 27, 2022 session of the Texas Senate Health and Human Services Committee, the recorded testimony of Dr Peter A. McCullough has become the talk among social media users. Highlighting a section of the testimony where Dr McCullough talks about the global recall of Covid-19 by the World Council for Health (WCH), a social media user indirectly claims that Covid-19 vaccines are not good for humans. We fact-checked and found the claim to be Half True

The Claim

On June 27, 2022, Dr Peter A. McCullough gave testimony on the safety of Covid-19 vaccines.

Highlighting a section of the Dr. McCullough testimony, an Instagram user posts “Global Recall on all C-19 Vaxx. Instagram deleted it so I had to post it again! ‼️Share Share Share!‼️This is important information they don’t want people to be aware of 🤦🏾‍♀️ Do your own research!”.

Fact Check

Is there a global recall of Covid-19 vaccines?

It seem so. A press release titled ‘Covid-19 Vaccine Pharmacovigilance Report’ was published on June 11, 2022, by the World Council for Health (WCH), claimed a global recall of Covid-19 vaccines. However, it has not been implemented yet. 

WCH is not a government agency and does not represent public health agencies around the globe. Even though WCH may sound similar to the World Health Organization (WHO), both are different organisations, and WCH has no connection with WHO.

A Bloomberg article published in July 2022 shows ‘more than 12.2 billion doses have been administered across 184 countries’. Similar data can be seen on the OURWORLDINDATA website.

A (2021) research paper has highlighted that there is not enough evidence that confirms Covid-19 vaccines contributed to fatalities. This paper shows that ‘clinical information such as death certificates, autopsy, and medical records establish no causal link to the COVID-19 vaccines. The death of a person following vaccination does not necessarily mean, the vaccine caused health problems and could be coincidental’. 

THIP MEDIA TAKE: The World Council for Health (WCH) claimed a global recall of Covid-19 vaccines. However, it has not been implemented yet.
