During COVID-19, Dr. Paul Offit momentarily became something of a skeptic, telling media outlets he wouldn’t get a COVID-19 booster and wouldn’t recommend it. Now, he’s back to recommending the vaccines for infants as young as 6 months old.
Dr. Paul Offit is a familiar figure to most Defender readers — he’s been pushing vaccines for decades, especially to children.
Vaccine inventor, pharma spokesperson, adviser to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — and vociferous denier of vaccine harms — that’s Paul Offit in a nutshell.
He told the press that the boosters were “grossly oversold” and voted against them in an FDA vaccine advisory panel. In July 2022, he gave an interview to ZDoggMD during which he speculated that the Biden administration had pressured the panel and that “the fix was in,” suggesting there might be corruption at work.
Whatever Dr. Offit’s misgivings, he’s now back to his old self, promoting a new book, out Feb. 13: “Tell Me When it’s Over: An Insider’s Guide to Deciphering COVID Myths and Navigating Our Post-Pandemic World.”
In this Substack post to promote the book, he hyped COVID-19 shots to infants as young as 6 months.
Dr. Offit rues that only 4% of parents with children younger than age 4 have given them COVID-19 shots. He then recommends the vaccines by suggesting that children are suffering from severe COVID-19 disease, that the vaccines are effective in young children and that they are safe.
His post offers no scientific references whatsoever. It’s just, “trust me, I’m Dr. Offit.”
So the real Dr. Offit is back! Pharma’s most prominent vaccine shill is back to push SARS-CoV-2 gene therapy injections on infants and toddlers.
Children’s Health Defense (CHD) has debunked these claims in many articles and pieces, including this “Top 10 Reasons” not to give COVID-19 shots to kids, and this 2023 Defender article. And unlike Dr. Offit, CHD provides references.
Dr. Offit concludes: “At this point, the choice to vaccinate young children should be an easy one.”
I agree. The 96% of parents with children under age 4 have made the easy and right choice — to reject these unsafe, ineffective, liability-free gene therapy injections.Suggest a correction
