Recently, Paul Thomas contacted me about one of my posts. He wanted to interview me for his show about some of the current vaccine issues and where we should go from here. I think it was a pretty good discussion. (Here is the post which caught his eye: https://rickjaffeesq.com/2022/03/09/some-big-picture-thinking-as-covid-mandates-wind-down-around-the-world/)
As most of you know, Paul Thomas is an outspoken Oregon pediatrician who has had his run-ins with the Oregon Medical Board on the vaccine issue. His biggest crime is that he gave the world a peek into his pediatric practice, in an about as scientific way as can be done in terms of a retrospective study comparing the health of his vaccinated vs unvaccinated patients. He and Jack Weiler published the results of the study. The bottom line was that the unvaccinated patients were much healthier than the fully vaccinated group, a result which should surprise few reading this post.
As is often the case with studies that show results inconsistent with the narrative that vaccines are completely safe and beneficial with little risk, there were complaints about the study and its methodology. This is the standard tactic used against studies not in conformity with the mainstream narrative. As a result of the attacks, the study was forcibly retracted.

To me, the data and main thrust of the study is still a valid data point. The results are consistent with the African studies done by Peter Aaby. Aaby’s studies showed that while a specific vaccine (DPT) might reduce the incidence of the vectors of the vaccine, it caused somewhat troubling more generalized health problems; a significant increase in mortality in those receiving the vaccine. Here is one of his studies.
They couldn’t force the retraction of the Aaby studies, but the pro-vaxxer talking heads dismissed Aaby as unqualified, which was the tactic used against Jack Weiler in his and Paul’s study. The other bases for dismissal of Aaby’s work are, “Hey it’s Africa”, and “we don’t use DPT anymore.” I find neither response satisfying.
Ironically, now that Paul has his own podcast with CHD TV’s mega reach, he should have more of an impact on the vaccine debate than he previously had. So good on him and CHD for giving him a platform.
But I digress. Here is the link to the interview. https://live.childrenshealthdefense.org/shows/against-the-wind-with-dr-paul-thomas.
