Free screening of ‘VAXXED’ Sunday
“VAXXED: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe” will be screened at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Orpheum Theatre.
Admission is free.
A question-and-answer session will follow the 90-minute documentary.
The film pivots around an incident in 2013, when biologist Dr. Brian Hooker received a call from Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who led the agency’s 2004 study on the Measles-Mumps-Rubella vaccine and its link to autism.
Thompson said the CDC had omitted data in its final report that revealed a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Hooker recorded his phone calls from Thompson for the next several months as Thompson provided the confidential data.
“VAXXED” contains interviews with pharmaceutical insiders, doctors, politicians, and parents of vaccine-injured children “revealing an alarming deception that has contributed to the skyrocketing increase of autism and potentially the most catastrophic epidemic of our lifetime.”
The film calls for the following:
• That Congress subpoena Thompson and investigate the CDC fraud.
• That Congress repeal the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act and hold manufacturers liable for injury caused by their vaccines.
• That all vaccines be classified as pharmaceutical drugs and tested accordingly.
