One of the doctors who argued for mandatory vaccinations recently in a USA Today op/ed is being bankrolled by Big Pharma, creating a massive conflict of interest for the self-professed medical expert.
Dr. Michael Lederman co-wrote the op/ed titled, “Defeat COVID-19 by requiring vaccination for all. It’s not un-American, it’s patriotic,” which was published by the USA Today on Thursday.
“Broad induction of immunity in the population by immunization will be necessary to end this pandemic. In simple terms, a refusal to be vaccinated threatens the lives of others,” the doctors wrote, arguing that those who refuse to comply with vaccine mandates must be punished under the law.
The doctors also called for an end to the 4th Amendment of the Constitution by proposing an invasive federal vaccine tracking database: “A registry of immunization will be needed with names entered after immunization is completed… Thus, immunized persons will need to receive expiration date-stamped certification cards, which should be issued to all who are immunized in the country, whether here legally or not.”
Dr. Lederman’s ties with Big Pharma go back many years, as he has soaked up millions from pharmaceutical corporations to fund his medical research. He received $2.5 in grant money from Gilead Sciences in 2017 to study AIDS and HIV treatments. Back in 2014, Dr. Lederman and his fellow Case Western researchers received $12.7 million from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci for other AIDS/HIV trials.
