On Friday, Sept. 24, 2021, The Associated Press reported on stories circulating online incorrectly asserting that experts with the Food and Drug Administration revealed that the COVID-19 vaccines are killing at least two people for every person they save. But FDA experts did not say this, and strongly refuted this false claim in an email to The Associated Press. A speaker who is not affiliated with the FDA made these statements during the open public hearing portion of a Sept. 17 FDA vaccine advisory panel meeting. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)
