1/6: Our @TexasChildrens Center for Vaccine Development @BCM_TropMed (co-directed by @mebottazzi @PeterHotez with a team of 25+ amazing scientists) works to place all of our findings in the public domain through scientific publications. Sometimes we do this in lieu of patents..
2/6 This includes our low-cost recomb protein "people's vaccine" for COVID-19, licensed to the amazing @biological_e in India + others. Here's our most recent in @SciImmunology on protection of the vaccine in primates in collaboration with @EmoryVaccineCtr immunology.sciencemag.org/content/6/61/e…

Our conservative-libertarian friends are criticizing me for highlighting the potential of long Covid, neurological sequelae in young adults, adolescents, children. That’s why I put up a number of papers a few days ago. Will repost a few nature.com/articles/d4158…

1/3 Many thanks ⁦@ChrisJansing⁩ for hosting me today re the POTUS statement on antivaccine misinformation. While FB was specifically mentioned the truth is it’s not that simple. Here’s the deal: There are 2 pieces, one being mentioned by the White House, other ignored Image
2/3 regarding the FB mention, yes they’re culpable but actually all the social media platforms are involved, as well as the e-commerce platforms. Amazon for instance is the largest promoter of fake antivaccine and Covid conspiracy books
3/3 …but the biggest piece unmentioned in both the US Surgeon General report and the White House is the SOURCE of the information. They won’t mention the triple headed monster. So I will…

1/3 USG health misinformation advisory. Good intentions, maybe some modest impact but inadequate. If they had done this 5-10 years ago maybe? But back then all I got from Dept HHS "Peter, we're not calling attention to this, it will just give it oxygen"
2/3 Currently, the advisory reflects a tone deafness or lack of situational awareness regarding the depth and breadth of an antiscience empire that was allowed to build and monetize the internet over the last decade from NGOs, news outlets, Russian Govt
3/3 I've called on the White House to form an interagency task force that includes Depts Homeland Security, State, Commerce, Justice, and HHS, and recognize that the threat of the antiscience empire is as grave as global terrorism, cyberattacks, nuclear proliferation.

Many thanks ⁦@chrislhayes⁩ for hosting me ⁦@allinwithchris⁩ with ⁦@RepLamar⁩ I explained health consequences of low vaccination in a state like TN where only 20% of adolescents vaccinated and low numbers young adults. In addition to failing to stop the virus….
I’m worried about the effects of long Covid and findings such as these in @JAMA_current where 26% young adults suffer from this.. jamanetwork.com/journals/jaman…
What about unvaccinated adolescents? We don’t know but an article just out in @nature says 5-10% or even much higher. nature.com/articles/d4158…

"Scarlet Letter L" fueled by COVID vaccine defiance + delta variant taking shape across conservative strongholds in the South. It began in Missouri, descended into Arkansas Louisiana and is now reaching East across the Gulf Coast states of Mississippi, Alabama, North Florida
With some exceptions, starting this summer almost no one in the US has to be hospitalized from COVID-19 or lose their life from SARS-2 coronavirus. By now almost all (>90-95%) of the hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19 in America are by choice. That is the reality.
And the bad guys in this are not the victims of COVID-19. The bad guys = members of the US Congress who sought to discredit vaccines this past weekend, and the cable news outlets, weaponizing health communication and falsely claiming vaccines = political instruments of control.
