Paul Offit Behind Agreement Giving Vaccine Maker Impunity to Poison

Paul Offit belongs to the Wistar Institute, which owns the rubella component of GlaxoSmithKline’s MMR vaccine. It was secretly indemnified by the UK’s National Health Service in 1998, giving GlaxoSmithKline impunity to poison. But before that could happen, Wistar allowed its rubella vaccine’s continued use by GlaxoSmithKline in its combined vaccine even after it was pulled in Canada for safety issues. The subsequent indemnity led to the UK Department of Health and GlaxoSmithKline orchestrating the theft of vaccine-injured children’s medical records with London’s Royal Free Hospital.

And yet Offit has no problem remaining an adjunct associate professor on Wistar’s faculty. He has held the position for over 25 years, previously working as assistant professor and research investigator at Wistar.

He has spent much of that time working on rotavirus vaccine development at Wistar with rubella vaccine inventor Stanley Plotkin. Offit has also praised opposition researcher Brian Deer for his misrepresentations of vaccine-injured children’s medical records, which he got through theft masterminded by the GSK-backed administrator that shut down the original autism-vaccine research. It is quite clear that Paul Offit would gladly do the same to medical records of vaccine-injured children at his own hospital if he was given the chance. He has no respect for patient confidentiality and is happy to see medical records of children he helped poison be used to protect that poison.

To this day, his institute Wistar benefits from the secret indemnity agreement between GlaxoSmithKline and the UK National Health Service. So too does Paul Offit, who believes vaccine makers should poison kids with impunity.

How Paul Offit Profited Off The Backs of Kids Injured by GSK’s MMR Vaccine

“Get the fuck out of here! Piece of shit!”

That is what vaccine inventor Paul Offit yelled at Autism Investigated’s editor after being told that protection from personal injury litigation was making money off the backs of vaccine-injured kids. It turns out he was doing exactly that for his entire career, starting with his rotavirus vaccine’s development. At the time, the Wistar Institute he was working for was profiting from dangerous, since-withdrawn and secretly indemnified measles-mumps-rubella vaccines sold in the UK.

The co-inventor of Offit’s vaccine Stanley Plotkin is the inventor of the rubella component of all measles-mumps-rubella vaccines. Co-assignee of Offit’s vaccine patent Wistar Institute was the patent assignee of all rubella components of measles-mumps-rubella vaccines. That includes the now-withdrawn Pluserix vaccine introduced to the United Kingdom by Smith, Kline and French Laboratories, which previously funded Plotkin’s rubella vaccine development. During Pluserix’s introduction, Smith, Kline and French was an English subsidiary of Philadelphia-based SmithKline Beckman. Offit, Plotkin and Wistar were all based in Philadelphia as well.

Despite being already withdrawn in Canada for causing meningitis, Smith, Kline and French’s Pluserix vaccine was approved by the United Kingdom in 1988. In the supply agreement, the UK’s National Health Service secretly indemnified Smith, Kline and French Laboratories from liability. That made the British government liable for resulting vaccine injuries.

Subsequently, MMR vaccine injury litigation was shut down in the United Kingdom when federal funding was suddenly denied to lawsuits. Autism-vaccine research was shut down as well, the chief scientist fired and de-licensed. To this day, papers continue to be retracted including one by a long-deceased scientist. Medical records of children in the seminal 1998 vaccine-autism paper were stolen and expropriated by GlaxoSmithKline’s opposition researchers.

Paul Offit’s vaccine was developed with the dirty indemnity money that led to all of that. No wonder he still partners with GlaxoSmithKline to promote vaccines and dishonestly deny vaccine injury.

Glaxo Cartoon Celebrates Theft of Vaccine-Injured Kids’ Medical Records

Dr. Andrew Wakefield on Re-Licensure – “I will now give this very, very serious consideration”

At the annual AutismOne conference – 26.5 minutes into the below Twitter-linked video of a Q/A session on the documentary Vaxxed – director and much-maligned doctor Andrew Wakefield said he will give “very, very serious consideration” to getting his medical license restored. His comment was met with applause and cheers from the audience, who gave him a standing ovation.

Dr. Wakefield first expressed interest in having his license restored earlier this year, and Autism Investigated received a signed letter from the UK’s General Medical Council (GMC) saying they would consider his application for restoration and “any further supporting evidence” he provides. He then drew criticism from Autism Investigated after saying in a text message that re-licensure still was not a priority for him.

But on the night of May 28th, Dr. Wakefield had a well-received change of tune that couldn’t have come a moment too soon. He was gracious for being reminded earlier that day that it was approval from an ethics committee of the National Health Service (NHS) that the GMC claimed he needed but lacked when he arranged for blood to be taken from children at his son’s birthday party. However, those rules did not apply to those children because they were not patients. So the birthday party allegations are totally nullified.

All the GMC findings that caused Dr. Wakefield’s medical license to be revoked and his papers retracted have really been overturned four years ago. Unfortunately, it is because his medical license remains revoked and his papers remain retracted that he continues to be dismissed. Winning back his medical license would take away those excuses to dismiss him once and for all.

When the audience was done clapping for Dr. Wakefield after he expressed his renewed interest in restoration, he concluded, “If I am vindicated it will give credence to the parents’ story”. Then someone from the audience rose up and said, “the world needs more doctors like you. You need your license back.”
