Representative Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) issued the following statement regarding the quality of health care being provided at the Phoenix Indian Medical Center (PIMC), a federal government facility which is part of the Phoenix Area Indian Health Service that provides medical care to Native Americans from Arizona, Nevada and Utah.
“In response to the Project Veritas investigative reports that there is a deliberate underreporting or simply nonreporting of vaccine injuries by health care providers at PIMC, I sent a letter to the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) demanding a full review of all HHS health care systems nationally to ensure full compliance with vaccine injury reporting laws including reporting all adverse events occurring after the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Health care providers are inflicting harm on patients by not reporting adverse vaccine events, and they are violating federal law. It is key that we have accurate data concerning adverse vaccine reaction risks. Inaccurate data harms public health, and individual patients and their families.
More disconcerting is that Native Americans have suffered disproportionately from the COVID-19 pandemic. The fact that PIMC is underreporting adverse reactions to the vaccine occurring in Native Americans further jeopardizes the health of our indigenous peoples,” concluded Congressman Gosar.
