Spreading dangerous ideas on vaccines in Scotland

This is of relevance as Dr Malhotra’s ideas, popular with Andrew Bridgen MP (Con), on the Covid vaccines have gained traction in Scotland too. I had a look at his research.

His research casting doubt on C19 vaccine safety is in the Journal of Insulin Resistance.

While this journal, and thus Dr Malhotra’s research, is peer-reviewed, it does not seem to feature at all in the Top 100 High Impact journal listing for medicine-related research, unlike say, the Lancet which is at 5. The debate on vaccines in the UK, read widely and influential in decision-making circles, has unfolded largely in the Lancet and in the British Medical Journal yet Dr Malhotra’s ideas have not featured in either.

Research published in the Lancet, in June 2022, suggests that the vaccines saved tens of millions of lives globally. You can read the report in full at: https://www.thelancet.com/journals/laninf/article/PIIS1473-3099(22)00320-6/fulltext

And, no, the Lancet is not owned by Bill Gates. Indeed it has criticised him: https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(05)71053-9/fulltext

  1. There is a lot of misinformation out there, including by John Campbell via his YouTube channel, who is an anti vaxxer, having at the beginning of the pandemic been pro the vaccine. He apparently makes a lot of money from his channel, so plenty of people take his views and opinions as gospel.
    There are people trying to counter the misinformation out there however.
    Like Dr. Oliver here.


  2. Given the level of Covid 19 vaccination in here it looks as though the anti vaxers have not had much success in Scotland.
