Coronavirus Vaccine Update With Paul Offit - JAMA video

Coronavirus Vaccine Update With Paul Offit
Streamed live on Dec 2, 2020 (30-minutes)

With the Pfizer and Moderna coronavirus vaccines reportedly under review at the US FDA for emergency use authorization (EUA), Paul A. Offit, MD of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, returns to JAMA's Q&A series to provide an update on what to expect, prospects for vaccine rollout and distribution in the coming months, and ongoing safety surveillance. Recorded December 2, 2020.

Fall 2020 is seeing continued global spread of COVID-19 with uncertainties about the effects of school reopenings on transmission and the prospects for dual COVID-19 and influenza outbreaks heading into colder months. Vaccine trials are heading into phases 2 and 3, and the FDA’s earlier-year reliance on emergency use authorizations (EUAs) under perceived political pressures to deliver pandemic solutions is raising concerns about the integrity of approval processes for vaccines potentially offered to millions of otherwise healthy people.

His name should be Paul PR-Offit.

" At our April 6th autism hearing, Dr. Paul Offit disclosed
that he holds a patent on a rotavirus vaccine and receives
grant money from Merck to develop this vaccine. He also
disclosed that he is paid by the pharmaceutical industry to
travel around the country and teach doctors that vaccines are
safe. Dr. Offit is a member of the CDC's advisory committee and
voted on three rotavirus issues, including making the
recommendation of adding the rotavirus vaccine to the Vaccines
for Children program."


"Then there's Paul Offit, perhaps the most widely-quoted defender of vaccine safety.

He's gone so far as to say babies can tolerate "10,000 vaccines at once."

This is how Offit described himself in a previous interview: "I'm the chief of infectious disease at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and a professor of pediatrics at Penn's medical school," he said.

Offit was not willing to be interviewed on this subject but like others in this CBS News investigation, he has strong industry ties. In fact, he's a vaccine industry insider.

Offit holds in a $1.5 million dollar research chair at Children's Hospital, funded by Merck. He holds the patent on an anti-diarrhea vaccine he developed with Merck, Rotateq, which has prevented thousands of hospitalizations.

And future royalties for the vaccine were just sold for $182 million cash. Dr. Offit's share of vaccine profits? Unknown."
