Dr. Paul Thomas, MD FAAP is one of America’s top pediatricians. His thriving Portland practice, Integrative Pediatrics, employs seven health care providers and serves more than 10,000 Oregon children, including kids with varying vaccination statuses. Dr. Thomas explains, “Parents are discharged from other pediatric practices when they won’t continue vaccinating their already vaccine-injured children,” he says, “or they don’t want to vaccinate siblings or subsequent children. These families find our clinic where we honor the parents’ right to choose how to vaccinate their child.” Dr. Thomas has more than 1 million YouTube followers and is the author of many books, including “The Vaccine-Friendly Plan,” which provides an alternative to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) vaccine recommendations.

In recent years, the Oregon Health Authority has targeted Dr. Thomas by removing his access to the CDC’s Vaccines For Children program, which pays for vaccines for low income families. Providence Health Plan and the Oregon Health Authority’s Oregon Health Plans, which are major health plans, have threatened to drop Dr. Thomas’ insurance coverage, claiming that the practice’s low vaccination rate signifies inferior care. These maneuvers could trigger a domino effect, closing down Dr. Thomas’ practice and leaving thousands of families with no pediatric care.

Dr. Thomas’ 2016 best-selling book, “The Vaccine-Friendly Plan,” is a compelling challenge to the CDC vaccine schedule and the business model of the Pharma/medical cartel. That book has made Dr. Thomas a target of those vested interests and their media allies. Dr. Thomas and his colleague Dr. James Lyons-Weiler just published a peer-reviewed study comparing the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated children in the practice. The data in that study shatters the vaccine industry’s religious orthodoxies.

“The unvaccinated just don’t get sick and they rarely suffer from developmental delays, autism, allergies, anxiety, depression and autoimmune conditions that the highly vaccinated do,” Dr. Thomas said. “I am hearing stories every week of parents who watched their children regress into autism or ‘disappear’ as the lights in their eyes went out, often after vaccines.”

Dr. Thomas is leading the battle to practice ethical health care and evidence-based medicine, honor informed consent and stand up against medical coercion at every level. Health plans are not heeding the overwhelming weight of published science when they confuse full vaccination — according to federal guidelines — with good medical care. Reimbursement incentives for vaccines and “quality measures” contract systems and Pharma-friendly state medical boards effectively force most pediatricians to follow the CDC schedule or risk their practices. Dr. Thomas is a victim of this dynamic.

Here’s a timeline and data explaining the importance of Dr. Paul Thomas’ work:

In 2008: Dr. Thomas opened Integrative Pediatrics where informed consent is honored — always.

In 2016: Dr. Thomas released his best-selling book: “The Vaccine-Friendly Plan.”

This chart showing powerful data started being shared at rallies to stop mandatory vaccine bills and nationally by Children’s Health Defense:

Then the attacks began:

2018, 2019, 2020: Oregon Medical Board (OMB) sent letters of complaints threatening to revoke Dr. Thomas’ license.

2019: Oregon Health Authority removes Integrative Pediatrics VFC (Vaccines For Children) program preventing the disadvantaged from having access to free vaccines.

2020: Oregon Health Authority and Oregon Health Plan terminate contracts with Integrative Pediatrics, Dr. Thomas and his entire staff. Providence Health Plans terminates all contracts with Integrative Pediatrics and all providers.

Dr. Thomas’ legal team wrote the following regarding the OMB attacks:

“The information provided by me to the OMB clearly demonstrates that I have violated no law or rule, and that I have fully complied with the applicable standard of care for physicians who administer and manage childhood vaccinations. There is simply no factual basis for the complaints that have been made.”

March 2020: This peer-reviewed paper, “Acute exposure and chronic retention of aluminum in three vaccine schedules and effects of genetic and environmental variation,” is released, which compares the toxic exposure to aluminum when following the CDC childhood vaccine schedule compared to the Vaccine-Friendly Plan.

Along the left vertical, Y-axis is the amount of aluminum retained in a child’s body. Along the bottom, horizontal X-axis are the days of life from birth to 800 days (2+ years). Notice the yellow and black (CDC schedule) exposures exceed adult levels (red line) on vaccine days . CDC and VFP (green) exceed pediatric safety levels (blue)

Bar graph above shows children spend 30-70% of their first 7 months above the toxic level for their age (blue line). Those on the Vaccine-Friendly Plan (VFP) spend 6% of their first 7 months above the toxic level for aluminum.

October 2020: The long-awaited vaccinated vs unvaccinated study is released — Relative Incidence of Office Visits and Cumulative Rates of Billed Diagnoses Along the Axis of Vaccination. In response to the OMB’s baseless attacks, Dr. Thomas commissioned a thorough quality analysis looking at all health outcomes for patients born into his practice. That data set was de-identified and with Dr. James Lyons-Weiler, they published this landmark peer-reviewed paper

What does this study show? They looked at 3,324 patients born into the Integrative Pediatrics from June 2008 to January 2019. 561 were completely unvaccinated, and 2,763 were partially vaccinated.

These graphs show the highly vaccinated (orange) were far more likely to suffer health problems than the unvaccinated (blue). 

According to Dr. Thomas:

“Lifestyle differences between the vaccinated and unvaccinated groups in this practice cannot explain the large difference in outcomes, and if they do, then it would be objective to conclude that everyone should adopt the lifestyle followed by the unvaccinated if they want healthier children. That lifestyle choice includes, for many families, avoiding some or all vaccines, and thus, the lifestyle choice concern is inextricably linked to vaccine exposure.

“Parents are almost universally told by their child’s health care provider that the health issue was not due to the vaccine, in spite of growing evidence in the scientific literature that supports both plausible mechanisms of action for chronic illnesses including epidemiological associations. It is now apparent that the commonly reported lack of association of adverse events may be due to the use of a test statistic with low intrinsic power and due to problems including model misspecification and overadjustment bias and that further research is needed to update guidelines and recommendations via additional studies.

“We could detect no widespread negative health effects in the unvaccinated other than the rare but significant vaccine-targeted diagnosis. We can conclude that the unvaccinated children in this practice are not, overall, less healthy than the vaccinated and that indeed the vaccinated children appear to be significantly less healthy than the unvaccinated.

“It is time to state this fact: vaccines are not safe. Vaccines are associated with significant acute and chronic health issues in children, including asthma, allergic rhinitis, breathing problems, behavior issues, ADHD, respiratory infection, otitis media, ear pain, other infections, eye disorders, eczema, skin disorders and anemia. This is what the data above show clearly.

“Every major health plan and large institution with data should simply identify the unvaccinated within their data set and match those patients by age and demographics to compare all health outcomes as we have done in this historic study. This is the kind of work the CDC, the National Institutes of Health, the public health institutions, and every major health plan and clinic should be doing. We need more data, not less.

“As COVID-19 vaccines are rolled out, it is imperative that those getting the vaccines be compared to those not getting them to look at all health outcomes. Failure to do so will bury the negative effects of vaccination. It is unethical to administer an experimental vaccine that has no long-term safety testing without setting up a system to compare those who get the COVID-19 vaccines to those who do not get them.”
