Amanda Black is known for boldly speaking her mind on topics she feels strongly about – and one of those is her COVID-19 anti-vaccine theories and disdain for pharmaceutical group Pfizer.

The South African singer shared her views on a viral Twitter clip in which the multinational corporation revealed that their vaccine was not tested for its ability to prevent transmission before it entered the market in 2020.


In a clip that fuelled anti-vaxxers, Janine Small, president of international markets at Pfizer, told the European Parliament last week that the company essentially did not know whether its COVID-19 vaccine prevented transmission of the virus before it entered the market in December 2020.

Many tweeps claimed that the “admission” contradicted the principle of the COVID-19 vaccine mandate, adopted by many countries and companies.

And weighing in with her own opinion, Amanda Black expressed her views in a series of tweets.

The former Idols SA finalist slammed influencers who were “paid” to “bash” people who did not take the COVID-19 vaccine. She also clapped back at Pfizer, adding that the “truth is coming out”. The award-winning singer also praised those who “listened to our instincts”

“Vaccine influencers? People have died and people are chronically sick and you were here bashing, and ridiculing people. Hope the money you got ran out quicker than the truth is coming out. That’s what happens to easy, evil money.

“Still gathering my s**t together, no1 ever wants to be right about something so horrible. We don’t deserve this, history repeating its f**ken self. Thanks to everyone who kept strong in the face of losing everything. trusting, listening to our instincts even with lack of evidence”

“F**k @pfizer”

“I really don’t care what people say about me or to me in these streets. Apologise to your family members and friends who you ridiculed and treated like lepers for not wanting to inject forced medication into their systems”

“I’m so sorry for those who succumbed to the pressure to take the vaccine coz they were afraid and their livelihoods were threatened. Sending you love and light”

Earlier this year, Amanda Black weighed in on a report about vaccine “side-effects”. In the 38-page report, Pfizer documents 1291 “vaccine side-effects” of their COVID-19 jab.

However, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Tom Shimabukuro, their data suggested that 92% of the negative side-effects were not serious. It also found that less than 1% of people sought any medical care following vaccination. Although the list of vaccine side-effects were long, they were also rare.

Meanwhile, several news agencies shared fact-checker information in the wake of the “misinformation” being spread about Pfizer vaccines.

Here’s what they found…

Pfizer was transparent about their lack of information about their COVID-19 vaccination and transmission.

AP reports: “Pfizer never claimed that its clinical trial, upon which the vaccine was authorized for use, evaluated the shot’s effect on transmission. In fact, shortly before the vaccine’s release, the company’s CEO emphasized that this was still being evaluated”.

A spokesperson told the news agency about the vaccine: “Stopping transmission was not a study endpoint”.

Additionally, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla claimed in a December 2020 interview with CNBC that it was still unclear whether vaccinated individuals could carry the virus and transmit it to others.

He said: “I think this is something that needs to be examined. We are not certain about that right now.”

Pharmaceuticals were not required to determine if vaccines reduced transmissions for initial regulatory approval. Nor did they claim to.

Reuters added: “To get emergency approval, companies needed to show that the vaccines were safe and prevented vaccinated people from getting ill. They did not have to show that the vaccine would also prevent people from spreading the virus to others”.

Details of Pfizer’s clinical trial have been public knowledge since November 2020

Covid-19 vaccines did assist in prevention of serious illnesses and reduced transmissions

Dr. Monica Gandhi, a professor of medicine at the University of California San Francisco told Politifact: “The pharmaceutical companies and the CDC both were accurate in terms of their messaging and reporting on the vaccines over time in terms of their ability to reduce transmission and — currently — their incredible ability to reduce severe disease due to the generation of cellular immunity”.

She added: “So, the prevention of transmission (and asymptomatic COVID) were not primary endpoints of these trials and were never a claim of the pharmaceutical companies in developing these vaccines. Indeed, this revelation is not new.”

The viral social media post is “misleading”

Politifact added in conclusion: “An Instagram post claimed that a Pfizer executive suddenly “admitted” that its COVID-19 vaccine had not been tested for preventing transmission before it went to market.

“But this is not a revelation. Pfizer’s clinical trial was always intended to study whether the vaccine prevented recipients from getting infected with COVID-19 and whether it prevented severe disease. Pfizer did not claim to have data about transmission of the virus to others”
