Mending the NHS: Stop Paying Doctors Extra to Give Vaccinations

My book NHS: What’s wrong and how to put it right contains a list of 25 things we need to do to repair the National Health Service.

Here is number 12 on the list.

‘Doctors should not receive an extra fee every time they give a vaccination. The extra fees can add up to a huge amount of money (I have estimated that many doctors made £50,000 to £100,000 each from giving the covid jab.) If doctors simply gave vaccinations which they knew to be useful and safe there would be far less vaccinating going on. It is difficult to see why doctors should receive an extra bonus payment simply for doing their jobs. It is as absurd as paying Marks and Spencer staff a bonus every time they sell a pair of socks or a croissant. The whole vaccination programme needs properly assessing (something which has never been done, since new vaccinations are simply added to the collection without any testing to see how safe or effective these additions might be.) One of the many unfortunate side effects of the attention which has been given to the covid-19 jabs is the fact that more traditional vaccinations (including the dozens routinely given to children) have been forgotten and are now largely administered without protest, controversy or a second thought. Independent doctors need to assess the ever-growing hailstorm of vaccinations, aimed particularly at children, which have seemingly become an integral part of our relationship with health care in general and doctors in particular. There has for a long time been a blackout on any discussion of the more traditional vaccines and the reputation of vaccines is built on a toxic mixture of myths, fallacies and plain, vanilla lies. My own questioning of official establishment policies had, for a long time, made me unpopular with the establishment. Vaccination is a taboo subject and vaccines are protected from criticism in the way that film stars were protected in the 1930s. In 2011, I described vaccination as ‘a massive confidence trick’ and predicted that ‘vaccination will become compulsory’. However, the mainstream media has devoted itself to promoting vaccines and never allowing any aspect of vaccination to be questioned. The BBC actually has a policy of excluding all vaccine criticism from its programmes. Merely questioning the validity of vaccination draws a torrent of abuse down upon the questioner’s head. The inevitable result is that vaccination programmes continue pretty well unhindered, and millions of children are now regularly jabbed with products which have never been properly tested or evaluated either for safety or efficacy. All around the world, infants and children are now subjected to a seemingly endless series of assaults on their immune systems. The vaccines used have never been adequately tested to see how they might interact or how they might affect other medications. Very few long-term trials have been done though the few available confirm my scepticism. For example, in 2017, the Danish Government and a Danish vaccine maker funded a study of the DTP vaccine. The WHO and the medical establishment claim that the DTP vaccine saves millions of lives but, after looking at 30 years of data, the scientists concluded that the DTP vaccine was probably killing more children than died from diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus prior to the vaccine’s introduction. The vaccine had ruined the immune systems of children, rendering them susceptible to death from pneumonia, leukaemia, bilharzia, malaria and dysentery. Sadly, the results of that trial changed nothing. The vaccination programmes continued unhindered. The vaccines most often described as having changed the world are those for polio, whooping cough and smallpox. With polio the truth is that as with other infectious diseases the significance of polio dropped as better sanitation, better housing, cleaner water and more food were made available in the second half of the 19th century. Look at the evidence and it shows that the number of polio victims went up not down as a result of vaccination. In Tennessee, USA (chosen at random) the number of polio victims before vaccination became compulsory was 119. The year after vaccination was introduced the figure rose to 386. In America as a whole, the number of deaths from polio had fallen dramatically before the first polio vaccine was introduced but the incidence of polio increased by around 50% after the introduction of mass immunisation. Of even more significance, 17 million people who were given polio vaccines as children in the 1950s and 1960s are now at risk of developing cancer. This is because the first practical vaccine used monkey kidney tissue – which contains a carcinogenic virus. Moreover, the virus can be passed on to the children of those who were given the contaminated vaccine. Could this explain the ever rising number of people with cancer? We’ll never know. The doctor who first warned of this risk was ignored and her laboratory was closed down. The documents showing who had received the dangerous vaccine were destroyed by the Department of Health in 1987 though it seems likely that millions of doses of the dangerous polio vaccine were used despite the risk. The smallpox story is equally startling. The myth that smallpox was eradicated through a mass vaccination programme is just that – a myth. Smallpox was eradicated through identifying and isolating patients with the disease. One of the worst smallpox epidemics of all time took place in England between 1870 and 1872 – nearly two decades after compulsory vaccination had been introduced. The people of Leicester refused the vaccine and there was only one death. In contrast there were massive numbers of deaths in towns where people had been vaccinated. German doctors are taught that it was the Reich Vaccination Law (making vaccination compulsory) which halted smallpox in their country. But the incidence of smallpox had dropped before the law came into action. Once again, a legally enforced national vaccination programme did not eradicate the disease. Look at history and it is clear that the number of cases of smallpox has gone up each time there has been a mass vaccination programme. It’s worth remembering too that Dr Jenner, a hero for pro-vaccine folk, refused to have his second child vaccinated after he’d tried his smallpox vaccination on his own son. Tragically, the boy remained mentally retarded until his death at the age of 21. Everywhere you look the evidence is the same: vaccination doesn’t work. Moreover, it is not difficult to sustain the argument that it does more harm than good. Sadly, the medical establishment and the media have for years conspired to suppress the truth and to demonise the truth-tellers – simply demanding bigger and bigger fees for giving vaccinations which have never been properly assessed either for effectiveness or safety.
