Pediatrician Paul Thomas responds to WW cover

Alt-Vaxx is not anti-science

Surprising correction: I am not an anti-vaxxer, nor the "king of the movement", I am simply a responsible, caring and evidence-based doctor who is in possession of shocking data that the world must see [“Alt-Vaxx,” WW,  March 20, 2019].

What would you do if you came across vital information that could save nearly 100,000 children each year from the fate of autism in the United States?

And if this information contrasted with the accepted paradigm and was so incredible that it would almost certainly be rejected?

This is the dilemma I faced, which led me to accept an interview with Willamette Week.

Unfortunately, here is the data I've submitted that they chose not to publish:

Among the 3,345 patients born in integrative pediatrics since June 2008, the autism rates are as follows:

Of 715 unvaccinated children, only one was diagnosed with autism.

Of 2,629 vaccine-adapted plans (alternative schedule), only six were diagnosed.

Compare these rates to the current rate of vaccination schedule for control and prevention centers of 1 in 45 children diagnosed with autism.

The above data were obtained by a pediatrician, neonatologist and independent computer expert, responsible for data extraction, at the request of those who wanted to know the results of my practice.

Now, you know why I want everyone to know. What should be our response to such information? I suggest that we all ask for studies comparing non-vaccinated and partially vaccinated to those fully vaccinated according to the CDC schedule.

I am also proposing that we put an end to the vaccine mandate legislation – such as Bill 3063 – which would put the CDC Act on universal adherence to the citizens of Oregon. The measles crisis used to advance the agenda of mandatory vaccines is actually no crisis. Ninety-five percent of Oregon residents are immunized against measles (our vaccination rate for that one), and no cases during this outbreak have been contracted in the community. All were family contacts of people involved in the initial outbreak. Of the 73 cases of measles, there was only one hospitalization and zero deaths.

I am in favor of vaccines and measles vaccine (MMR), but I also support informed consent and patients' right to choose. What kind of message do we give to our children when we say that they have no right to choose what is injected into their body?

This article on Dr. Paul Thomas is a regurgitation of all reporting on the issue of vaccines. Anyone anti-vax is anti-science, end of the story. This doctor or one of the many mothers who opposed the MMR vaccine in particular did not present any convincing argument? Has even been asked why a three-dose vaccine should be given to children under 2 years of age? Why is there not mention of how vaccine manufacturers are immune from prosecution and the number of vaccine-related injuries reported each year? This article, like so many others, only messes with those who doubt the safety and necessity of this vaccine and throws them out with those who are against all vaccines. Should not children be allowed to develop their own natural immunity before injecting a cocktail of chemicals that some mothers are convinced that they caused autism in their children? Is not it reasonable to give them at least a few sentences to explain their reasoning? All that we have had is this doctor and those who wonder about the MMR vaccine are badly seen by the scientific community. The journalist should have done her job including all the salient points that helped her arrive at her resume. WW did excellent investigative reporting, but that was not the case with this story.
