Croatian MEP Shares False Information About COVID-19 and Vaccines on FB

The Croatian fact-checking website Faktograf reported that Croatian MEP Ivan Vilibor Sincic shared false information about COVID-19 vaccines and coronavirus infection and has manipulated certain facts. For example, Sincic claims he personally contacted European Medicines Agency, EMA, which confirmed to him that “they never tested the vaccine”. Faktograf, meanwhile, noted that the EU regulator is not in charge of testing the vaccines, but just analyzes the documentation of drug testing that pharmaceutical companies attach while applying before EMA for drug approval, and also follows the reports of suspected side-effects.
