“Perhaps the most entertaining opinion, however, has to be the one voiced by pediatrician Daniel Summers, MD in The Washington Post. The headline boldy claims, ‘The evidence for vaccine safety is abundant. That will be $100,000, please.’
First, let’s get something straight right off the bat. One should always be circumspect about any article about vaccines written by a pediatrician. Why? Because pediatricians, as well as medical doctors in general, actually know very little about how vaccines affect the human immune system, brain, and microbiome. Apart from learning the vaccine schedule and memorizing the CDC’s mantra that vaccines are safe and effective and that serious vaccine reactions causing injury or death are so rare the incidence cannot be measured, doctors receive almost no education on vaccine science in medical school.
No, medical doctors are not “experts” in this area of ‘health care.’
So, when Dr. Summers writes, ‘It’s nearing two decades since I graduated from medical school, and in that span of time I’ve immunized thousands of patients,’ that statement has little or no bearing on his knowledge or level of expertise about infectious diseases or vaccine safety and effectiveness.”
