Scroll down for campaign directions.

Join the campaign as we call on the public to play a crucial role in the COVID-19 vaccine trials - The Control Group. Shortly after receiving Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), Pfizer and Moderna chose to unblind their placebo participants by  offering them the vaccine, citing ethical concerns. In doing so, they have obstructed the vaccine development process and diminished the potential to conduct long term studies to determine true long term safety and efficacy. 

“In a scientific study, a control group is used to establish a cause-and-effect relationship by isolating the effect of an independent variable. Researchers change the independent variable in the treatment group and keep it constant in the control group. Then they compare the results of these groups.”

Without a true control group, vaccine makers do not have the data to draw meaningful conclusions about the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines long term. As members of the public and believers in science, we are becoming the control group in order to ensure proper vaccine development and it’s true safety and efficacy.     

To participate in the campaign, post a picture of your face or family, and use one of the captions for your image below along with the hashtag #wearethecontrol.

Vaccine trial protocols cannot be compromised at the expense of individual health and safety. 

This campaign is SOLELY MEANT to provide awareness about the ethical questions surrounding unblinding placebo patients and the integrity of long term data and is NOT part of any clinical trial.

The FDA issued their Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the mRNA vaccines—Pfizer on 12/11/2020 and Moderna on 12/18/2020.

With lightning speed, by 12/16/2020 (Pfizer) and 01/14/2021 (Moderna.) Shortly after receiving their EUA’s, citing ethical concerns, both Pfizer and Moderna chose to unblind their saline placebo participants, and offer them their EUA vaccine. This irreversible decision was made less than only 6 months after they had started their clinical trials. In doing so, they have obstructed the vaccine development process and diminished the potential to conduct long term studies which determine legitimate safety and efficacy.

We are calling on those who wish to volunteer, to “participate” as the control group and play a crucial role in bringing awareness to the COVID-19 vaccine trials. With thousands receiving EUA vaccines and plans to make them widely available, the knowledge that these are not yet FDA approved vaccines and have not completed clinical trials leaves thousands without proper informed consent and diminishes our chances at learning the true long term safety and efficacy of new mRNA vaccines.

Less than 6 months after beginning clinical trials, both Moderna and Pfizer cited ethical concerns to support the unblinding of their COVID-19 vaccine trials. In doing so, placebo participants were given the option to receive the vaccine while the trial has yet to conclude.

This rush to unblind the trials undermines the scientific process and diminishes the small window of opportunity to study long term outcomes of these experiments.

In light of the now-shrinking size of the placebo recipients, we volunteer to take over as the control group.

We will “risk it all” for the greater good; sacrificing our chance at the COVID-19 vaccine so a group of intact individuals will remain as a long-term comparative group.

You’re welcome.

It is deeply troubling that both Pfizer and Moderna, less than 6 months after beginning their clinical trials, unblinded their saline placebo group. These actions have ruined any hope of gleaning meaningful data re: long term safety and efficacy of this never-before-used mRNA technology.

As such, please join me in restoring what is now lacking in this breach of scientific methodology: abstain from the vaccines and become a part of the control group.
