The UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (“MHRA”) has acknowledged that it used circular reasoning and lacks documentation to support its claim that there is a high number of Yellow Card reports related to covid injections. The agency asserted that the increase in reports is due to heightened public awareness, resulting in more people submitting reports than usual.

The MHRA has previously claimed there were a high number of Yellow Card reports relating to covid injections due to a high level of public awareness on reporting the ill effects.

In a recent article, Stephen Feldman highlighted a response to a Freedom of Information Act (“FoI”) request that revealed the MHRA used circular reasoning to make this claim. On 9 February, the FoI Team for the MHRA’s Safety and Surveillance said:

The statement made by the MHRA concerning high public awareness of the Yellow Card scheme and the reporting of suspected reactions was inferred from the number of Yellow Cards received reporting suspected side effects to the covid-19 vaccines.

FOI 24/099, MHRA, 9 February 2024
The MHRA has admitted that they began with what they are trying to end with. They wanted the high level of Yellow Card reports to be due to the high level of public awareness. So, they used the high level of Yellow Card reports to claim there was a high level of public awareness, which resulted in a high level of Yellow Card reports – circular reasoning.
