In 2013 U.S. biologist Dr. Brian Hooker received a phone call from a Senior Scientist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Dr. William Thompson. Dr. Thompson had led the agency’s study done in 2004 on Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine and its possible link to autism. In that phone call Dr. Thompson confessed that crucial data revealing a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism had been omitted in the final report.
Dr. Hooker enlisted the help of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the British gastroenterologist falsely accused of starting the “anti-vaxx” movement when he reported in 1998 that the MMR vaccine has a possible link with autism. This is not an anti-vaccination film. In fact Dr. Wakefield notes in the film that he still recommends children receive MMR vaccines, but in single doses rather than all at once. In his ongoing effort to advocate for children’s health, Wakefield has directed this 2016 documentary examining the evidence behind an appalling cover-up.
This 90 minute film features interviews with pharmaceutical insiders, doctors, politicians and parents of vaccine-injured children in addition to the confidential data provided by the whistleblower, Dr. Thompson.
There will be a post screening discussion and Q&A with Dr. Anke Zimmermann, a Naturopathic Physician from Victoria who has 25 years experience working with natural treatments for autism, ADHD and other behavioural and developmental disorders with a special interest in vaccine injuries.
