When I heard that Dr. William Reynolds Archer, M.D., the Commissioner of Health for the State of Texas made sure that all Texas kids were to receive this vaccine, but then exempted his own children, I scheduled a conference call with him. I wanted to know why his children were exempt from this vaccine. I provided him with all Jonathan’s background prior to our phone call so I would not have to repeat the complicated and long story on the phone with him. He knew that I was calling regarding vaccines but did not know that I was going to question him personally. He had another doctor in his office with him and I was on speakerphone.

I later met this doctor at a public hearing in Austin who confirmed what I am about to share – and she confirmed it as a matter of public record. He said that he indeed had exempted his own children because he was concerned about its safety. He said his children had allergies and asthma and didn’t want to give it to them. He could write his own medical exemption since he is a physician. We are not in a position to do that. He resigned his position last year. Basically he was saying that all kids had to have this vaccine, but not his own kids because he was concerned about its safety and he wanted to protect his kids.

Wow, that is a horror story.

Misuse of public office, big time.

This is a big nasty secret that has been going on for a very long time.

And former U.K. P.M. Tony Blair refused to answer whether or not his children received the MMR.

P.S. his mother-in-law is a practicing homeopath.

Growing up in my circle of friends, I knew many M.D.'s who did not vaccinate their children or were selective. I am talking the 1950s and 1960s. I have been called a liar for stating this, but it is a fact.

There is Dr. Oz...who advocates vaccines, but may not vaccinate his own kids (well, at least for flu).

This does not entirely bother me. One can hold one position, but compromise with your spouse on the issue. As long as he does not argue mandatory vaccine when he himself does not fully vaccinate.....

Then there was Elizabeth Steiner Hayward...who argued parents should not have the right to make medical decisions for their children around vaccines, but that she had every right to make medical decisions for her children that were against her doctors medical advice:

If you do not trust the site, just look at the video which has her own words.

I had a friend who was a doctor. She selectively vaccinated her son.

However, she was by no means a vaccine fanatic and never advocated mandatory vaccinations.

If it's a matter of public record, then there should be no problem finding a source for this claim other than "this person says so".

I mean I'd like to see a primary source. I'm not going to take what some random person on the internet says at face value. She indicates this is a matter of public record, so there should be one. If there isn't, then that calls the rest of what she says into question as well.

Thanks for the clarification.

This is from the original link.
We saw a physician in Houston who specialized in Hepatitis B adverse reactions and he did a battery of tests. His name is Andrew Campbell, MD. He told us that Jonathan definitely did have an adverse reaction to the hep B vaccine. We had a SPECT scan by Richard Neubauer, MD in Ft. Lauderdale who also stated that Jonathan had toxic anoxic encephalopathy directly related to the hepatitis B vaccine and this was not the first time he had seen it and unfortunately would not be the last time he would see it. We were also told that Jonathan’s intracranial pressure was so intense for such a long period of time from his prolonged horrific screaming that the vessel couldn’t handle the pressure and ruptured. I was told that brain vessels are the thinnest vessels and are not built to withstand intense and prolonged pressure such as screaming for 18-20 hours a day for four months.
Yeah, it is important to come up with reasons not to trust anything this mother says. Got it.
@teacozy, consider for a few seconds what her life is. Twenty-four hours a day caring for a seriously disabled child with inadequate funds. Of course it is necessary to scrutinize her story and to demand documentation of every single point! After all, she is anti-vaccine and nothing she says is trustworthy and everything has to have documentation.

Perfectly fair and reasonable.

NO one is trying to come up with reasons not to trust anything this mother says. No one is questioning her testimony regarding her child's vaccine injury even. Just the point of this thread, that the secretary of health, William Archer, exempted his own children. There is ZERO evidence of that.

Everything in her post lists the complete formal names of every doctor who diagnosed her son with a vaccine injury. Then she gets to this part about William Archer and it is "this doctor" I met at a conference said he exempted his children because of fear of safety of the vaccine and it is public record. No it isn't. There is no public record indicating that William Archer exempted his own children. The only record of this is this one mothers 2011 blog that has went viral stating that she talked to him and that "this doctor" she met at a conference confirmed it.

The fact that the person who said it has an injured child isn't enough to make me believe it. By the same token when a parent loses a child to a VPD that fact isn't enough to believe everything they say about politicians who are vaccine skeptical.

Reyn Archer was a problematic figure who left office in disgrace because of his frequent sexist, racist remarks. Adding "also a hypocrite" would not be surprising, but I think if there was fire there more smoke would exist than this one vague internet posting. Because of how problematic he was, I also would find it surprising that he actually took a call personally from a constituent to discuss anything.

Vaccine-critics comment on a story about a child who allegedly dies from a VAD (even though the child was subjected to other medical interventions, and we may never know how many or what kind) and provaxxer gets upset that one or two people did not acknowledge death of child with commentary on the tragedy of it.

Provaxxer's first couple of comments on a story about a vaccine injured child includes no acknowledgement of how tragic the family's situation is (not even looking for acknowledgement that it is a vaccine injury); instead goes straight to questioning the validity of the story.

Double standards?

OMG. So don't believe the mother. It is one anecdote anyways.

Maybe the public record refers to the public hearing in Austin she said she attended (this is likely the case). Maybe it refers to exemptions on file that most of us probably cannot access, but health officials and school officials probably can.

One anecdote.

In contrast, look at this study.

https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=....23036&usg=AFQjCNGvKuVZE6ngEqL_tjfopbl5eTYXXQ

19% of pediatric specialists would delay MMR until over 18 months with their own kids, 12% would not give Rotavirus, 9% would not give Menactra and 6% would not give Hep. A. Generalists are more likely to fully vaccinate, but even then, delaying and skipping were not uncommon.

That people in the medical field are and will be able to get their children exempted by virtue of their profession is no surprise and is a point I have brought up a few times in this debate. Like cops who don't give speeding tickets to other cops it's a perk, although the cop perk is way less offensive.

I sure hope complaints were made about the way some of the doctors conducted themselves in that story.

You saw the link I posted from the state of Tx? They had her as testifying, the other was an AP story.

Texas has right to know doesn't it? Ask! :grin:

Texas doesn't make it public who is or isn't taking the exemptions, oh well! Texas does have right to know, it's hard to say that they would agree to look into a matter from nine plus years ago, even though he was a public official. So one is left to ether believe the mom or actually see if Texas would agree under right to know.

All accounts mom's story seem very credible. So what reason would she have to lie on just this one part?

Texas does have a large number of expeditions and is known for not restricting personal freedoms and all the good stuff!
