Peter McCullough was recently interviewed by “Red Voice Media” and attacked Health Impact News, claiming that we have been “fact checked” by someone named “Dan O’Connor” at TrialSiteNews and that we were found to be “100% fallacious” and that we don’t cite our claims, and that we make “false claims.”
Let me just say that fact checkers, Health Impact News and the fact checkers – they’ve been fact checked themselves.
So, Dan O’Connor at TrialSiteNews fact checked the fact checkers. And he found them to a one to be 100% fallacious.
They don’t cite their claims. They’re making false claims. And then within a few clicks, every single one of them traces back to one of the vaccine stakeholders.
Healthfeedback, Health Impact News, they all trace back to… Dan O’Connor at TrialSiteNews has really exposed that.
In making this accusation against us in public, Peter McCullough has himself made a “false claim” and slandered Health Impact News in the process.
We have published several articles about Peter McCullough, including highlighting the very fine work he has done in promoting early treatments for COVID-19, and exposing the COVID fraud. See:

But we have also published articles showing that Peter is very much pro-vaccine, as he supports the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine, and we very clearly cited our sources.
Here’s what we wrote (click through the links to see our sources):
The Pro-Life Christian news site, Lifesite News, interviewed pro-vaccine Dr. Peter McCullough on August 5, 2021, who also spoke positively about the Novavax vaccine.
Speaking as a doctor, McCullough said that he has looked at studies of a vaccine called Novavax that does not use mRNA technology but is antigen-based, and he’s very encouraged by it.
According to the pro-life Charlotte Lozier Institute, Novavax is not produced using cell lines derived from the cells of aborted children. It appears, however, that some tests of this vaccine have involved the controversial cell lines.
“I [saw] rates of vaccine effectiveness over 2 to 5 months of 90%,” McCullough stated, but he cautioned that the studies were carried out before the Delta variant became dominant. Nevertheless, he is still hopeful that Novavax could offer a “broader amount“ of protection and with less risk of vaccine injury.
“It would be my understanding as a doctor, that this could be less likely to have these internal organ effects that we’re seeing with the other vaccines.” (Source.)
Dr. McCullough is opposed to the current COVID-19 shots, and has been a strong advocate for early treatments that he states are more effective than the COVID-19 shots which are harming people.
But even though he has had success with early treatments, he apparently still believes that COVID-19 is a real virus that is dangerous, and that a vaccine is still needed.
He was interviewed by the Right Wing America Out Loud podcast on September 2, 2021, which did a COVID Q&A with him.
One of the listeners, at about the 40-minute mark, asked him this question:
“Please, Dr. McCullough, give your analysis of the Novavax COVID vaccine.
I’ve been waiting for this vaccine to be available in the U.S. I’ve studied how it works, and how it differs from the RNA tech vaccines now being offered.
My conclusion is that this will be a safe vaccine. I am not anti-vaxx, and I do want to be vaccinated for COVID.
What is your analysis of the Novavax?”
This was Dr. McCullough’s response:
I agree with that conclusion. I’m not anti-vaxx either. In fact, I’ve had two vaccines this year.
I traveled to India a couple of years ago. I got extra vaccines. I have no problem with vaccines.
The Novavax is protein-based vaccine. It would be the purified spike protein that’s made, ah, in a, ah, medicinal format, 5 micrograms, they picked a lower dose.
In the published studies in the Journal of Medicine, it was every bit as good as Pfizer and Moderna.
And a sore arm, maybe the arm is sore a bit, more sore than Pfizer or Moderna or J&J, but should be free from the systemic side effects. Should be free, certainly free of any genetic, uhm, manipulation in the human body.
And I can completely agree. We need to get Novavax sooner. It was supposed to be second quarter of 2021, which is now.
The FDA has delayed it. And I think many ought to think about just waiting. If they can ride it out for Novavax.
You can listen to the full podcast here. The Delta variant was making the news rounds when this was recorded, and Dr. McCullough stated that the Delta variant was “more dangerous” than the original COVID-19 virus.
We have also reported that Peter McCullough has profited quite a bit from Big Pharma, even in 2020 when he was opposing COVID vaccines, by receiving payments from the pharmaceutical industry.
This is public information and we linked to the source, which is Open Payments.
Peter McCullough collected over $2 million in payments from Big Pharma from 2014 through 2020, mostly for “consulting fees,” but also including “Food and Beverage” and “Travel and Lodging” among other payments.
In 2020, when he was opposing the COVID-19 vaccines, he received kickbacks from two of the companies that produced COVID-19 vaccines, $41,649.05 from Astrazeneca, and $10,000 from Janssen Research.
Again, we cited our source, which anyone can “Fact Check” for themselves at Open Payments.
Also, on the About Us page here at Health Impact News, the very first sentence states:
The Health Impact News network is owned by Sophia Media, LLC, which is owned by me, Brian Shilhavy.
So if Dan O’Connor and Peter McCullough are claiming that we have ties to “vaccine stakeholders,” where is their source?
This is a false claim.
I have reached out to Peter McCullough prior to publishing this article asking him for clarification and why he is attacking us like this, but so far he has not responded.
