Editor’s Note: See how millionaire vaccine industrialist Paul Offit – “Scientific Technical Advisor” of “Invisible Threat” – deals with critical questioning at a public talk he gave at NIH in the above video.
Vaccine industry front group Every Child By Two (ECBT) kicked off a letter-writing campaign asking legislators to attend a pro-vaccine film featuring millionaire vaccine developer and industry spokesman Paul Offit. In the film, Offit calls those who question vaccine safety “evil.” Every Child By Two posted online:
By flooding [legislators’] offices with calls and emails between now and May 1st we can make it clear …we stand firm against vaccine misinformation that is resulting in weakened public health policies, watered-down school vaccination requirements and the resurgence of deadly diseases!… Explain that this student-film aims to uncover the truth about the anti-vaccination groups who seek to dismantle the progress made to combat deadly diseases that used to take the lives of millions of people each year.
The “student film” was directed and produced by adults, not students, and the project has deep pharma ties. Paul Offit is the film’s “Scientific Technical Advisor.” ECBT has received millions in funding from pharmaceutical companies. Funding and other support for the film comes from the Rotary Club; Rotary International receives grants from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – a major investor in vaccines.
The student who is listed as the film’s writer, Camille Posard, posted on the ECBT blog that she fears vaccine safety advocates, and she compares us to “white supremacists.” This is not the first time the vaccine industry has resorted to hate-mongering. But exploitation of high school students is a new low.
A woman conducting interviews for the film was “clearly not a student,” according to Shawn Centers, Autism expert and pediatrician. Dr. Centers says the filmmakers gained access to his practice, his patients and their parents under false pretenses. He was told the documentary was about autism, so he gave permission to film. But CHSTV’s own Facebook page reveals the film was about vaccination, not autism, seven months prior to the filming.
While promoters want us to believe the teens “stumbled into” the vaccine controversy, the Rotary Club grant, Offit’s involvement and ECBT’s relentless promotion of the film are ample evidence that Invisible Threat is pharma’s most shameless PR effort to date.

Editor’s Addendum: As a result of Posard’s comparison of vaccine skeptics to racist bigots, I implore you all to click the hyperlink below, and read about the bigotry and abuse that was directed at me by her film’s “Scientific Technical Advisor.”
