Peter Doshi and FDA approval of Pfizer COVID vaccine – what now?
Once again, the anti-vaccine shill, Peter Doshi, uses his BMJ blog to complain about the recent Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine approval by the US FDA. I’ve already seen anti-vaccine activists use this as a “peer-reviewed paper that shows that the vaccine is dangerous.” First, it is not peer-reviewed, it is a blog post no different than the one I’m writing right now. Second, it’s an opinion piece, he’s not showing any original or even secondary research to support his wild claims.
BMJ is not a hotbed of anti-vaccine pseudoscience, except for the presence of Peter Doshi. For example, they published a series of articles, written by Brian Deer, about Andrew Wakefield’s despicable deceit, you can read about it here, here, and here. Deer has also written a powerful book about Wakefield’s fraud. I wonder what Mr. Deer thinks of Peter Doshi as an editor at the acclaimed medical journal.
Even though anyone with the least bit of scientific expertise understands that whatever Peter Doshi says about the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine FDA approval is nonsense, I will endeavor to take apart his ridiculous claims.Read More »Peter Doshi and FDA approval of Pfizer COVID vaccine – what now?
