COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effects: "I Can't Hear You"

McCullough is an anti-vax ivermecton proponent - He’s nuts.


Sorry, what does Peter McCollough have a PhD in?

McCollough is an anti-vax propagandist. His conclusions are misleading and disingenuous and he uses the same flawed methodology to blame COVID-19 vaccines for practically every condition.

What McCollough is not acknowledging is that people have been getting afflicted with ailments and dying from them as long as there have been people. It’s same for animals. They get sick and die as well. On any given day, many people die of various causes. (According to a link on Google, the number is around 170,000 deaths per day.) Before there was COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccines, people were dying. That has not changed. No one is blaming the deaths before COVID-19 on the disease or the vaccine, yet now people like McCollough are blaming these deaths on the vaccine. As more people get vaccinated, the percentage of people who die after being vaccinated increases. This does not mean they died or were afflicted with whatever ailment because of the vaccine.

It’s the same for hearing disorders. At one point, most of us could hear normally, then our hearing gradually got worse. For those of us with tinnitus, most of us did not have it, then it gradually or suddenly developed. If someone acquired Tinnitus or some other hearing disorder after being vaccinated, it does not mean it happened because of being vaccinated.

The easy way to summarize this concept is the following:

Just because you died or were afflicted with whatever aliment AFTER you got vaccinated does not mean you died or were afflicted with whatever ailment BECAUSE of the vaccine.

This otherwise known as “Correlation does not imply Causation”. Claiming that Corellation does imply Causation is known as the Correlation Fallacy.

McCollough is using the Correlation Fallacy.

McCollough is preying on stupid people that cannot grasp this very simple concept. He is a contemptible human being for abusing his position to mislead stupid people.


" Conclusions

We present six cases of patients with otologic symptoms probably related to the AZCV, all of them with the onset of symptoms a few days after the AZCV exposure; five confirmed to have hearing loss by PTA, and one with clinical criteria strongly consistent with acute VN."

Oh boy:

" Through these two cases, we believe that the Coronavirus inactivated vaccine developed by Beijing Kexing Zhongwei Biological Technology Co., Ltd. may have potential adverse events that include deafness, which is total frequency profound hearing loss, accompanied by tinnitus, with or without vertigo. Treatment for these cases also proved to be ineffective. Moreover, deafness was unrelated primary disease and psychological condition and occurred without inducement. Therefore, we suggest that patients that have experienced unilateral sensorineural hearing loss in the past should see a doctor immediately following vaccination with the Coronavirus vaccine if they experience sensorineural hearing loss in the contralateral ear as to receive treatment and avoid irreversible damage."

He’s not an MD PhD. He’s just an MD with a professional masters in public health. So if you could go back and edit your posts to remove mis-attributing this guy with a degree he doesn’t have, that would be lovely.

But either way, he’s wrong about the particular data that you referenced with this post originally. If we’re talking educational chops, my PhD trumps his MD when it comes to interpretting data. Yet it would be disingenous for me to pretend that my non-epidemiology PhD gave me the relevant expertise, so I double checked with a friend who has a PhD in epidemiology and has been working in the field for 15 years. Quick and easy check that I’m surprised that Peter McCollough couldn’t do himself. So, it’s up to you to decide whether he is just mistaken, and arrogant enough to assume that he is correct without checking, or is willfully misleading you. :man_shrugging:

Perhaps you should get in touch with him and ask him for clarification, if you are confident that he’s open to that sort of dialogue. I’ll hold my breath for his response.


Peter McCullough, MD, MPH

Currently: Internist, Cardiologist, Epidemiologist

Dallas, Texas, United States


After receiving a bachelor’s degree from Baylor University, Dr. McCullough completed his medical degree as an Alpha Omega Alpha graduate from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. He went on to complete his internal medicine residency at the University of Washington, cardiology fellowship including service as Chief Fellow at William Beaumont Hospital, and master’s degree in public health at the University of Michigan. Dr. McCullough is a practicing internist, cardiologist, epidemiologist in Dallas Texas and the volunteer Chief Medical Advisor of the Truth for Health Foundation.

Dr. McCullough has broadly published on a range of topics in medicine with > 1000 publications and > 660 citations in the National Library of Medicine. His works include the “Interface between Renal Disease and Cardiovascular Illness” in Braunwald’s Heart Disease Textbook. Dr. McCullough is a recipient of the Simon Dack Award from the American College of Cardiology and the International Vicenza Award in Critical Care Nephrology for his scholarship and research. He serves on the editorial boards of multiple specialty journals. He has served as member or chair of data safety monitoring boards of 24 randomized clinical trials.

Since the outset of the pandemic, Dr. McCullough has been a leader in the medical response to the COVID-19 disaster and has published “Pathophysiological Basis and Rationale for Early Outpatient Treatment of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Infection” the first synthesis of sequenced multidrug treatment of ambulatory patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 in the American Journal of Medicine and subsequently updated in Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine. He has dozens of peer-reviewed publications on the infection and has commented extensively on the medical response to the COVID-19 crisis in TheHill, FOX NEWS Channel, NEWSMAX, OAN, ABC News, and America Out Loud Talk Radio. Dr. McCullough testified in the US Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and in the Texas Senate Committee on Health and Human Services, US Senate Panel “COVID-19 A Second Opinion,” Colorado General Assembly, New Hampshire Senate, South Carolina Senate, and Pennsylvania Senate, concerning many aspects of the pandemic response.

Yup, not a PhD.

Do you just skim?


@Neville I did put PhD myself, not Knowing he wasn’t or maybe i got somewhere, now having checked his Linkedin bio, I fixed it.
Regardless, your point about the table isn’t valid though, the numbers are clear.

You are more concerned about PhD than finding the truth about Covid Vax and its side effects!

Because Peter McCollough says?

YOU don’t know. And I’m just some schmuck on the internet. Perhaps you should seek an epidemiologist.


It is because Dr Peter McCullough published on a range of topics in medicine with > 1000 publications and > 660 citations in the National Library of Medicine…
I will take and trust his advice.

Fully qualified to manipulate statistics to suit his agenda

But you don’t actually care about these sorts of accolades, because you probably don’t trust Fauci, yeah? Or like, countless other people with equal or better expertise and accolades who aren’t “lone ranger doctors speaking the truth when everyone else is speaking lies”.


Sorry, I knew this would get off track as I was wading in.

But to others who are not Baltazard: Don’t worry, the vaccine is not associated with sudden hearing loss and continues to be one of our most effective tools against covid. Stay up to date. Consider Canada, where the age and health of the population is statistically similar to America but where full vaccination rate is 84% compared to 68% in America.


“our” Interesting word you’ve chosen here.

For anyone who believes the nonsensical claims of Peter McCullough and his cronies that 10s of thousands of people have died from the vaccines, I have some questions:

Where are the bodies? Did they just disappear?

Where are the family members of the 10s of thousands of people that supposedly died from the vaccines? Did they just go away and not say anything? Why aren’t there mass protests? Why aren’t there class action lawsuits?

During the pandemic, every hospital in the world was overflowing with COVID-19 patients, exhibiting ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome) and other severe symptoms. Many of these people died on ventilators. As of today, over 69% of the world population has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Over 13 billion doses have been administered. Almost 2 million doses are administered every day. If these vaccines are so dangerous and are killing so many people, hospitals should be overflowing with patients who are dying because of the vaccines. Yet, there is not a single hospital in the world with a COVID-19 Vaccine ward. How can you explain this? The answer is you can’t, because it’s not true.

If you want to read more about the nonsense that McCollough and the quacks that he associates with publish, here are some links: ESPECIALLY READ THIS

Rather than listen to anti-vax nut-jobs like McCullough, Kirsch, Malone, and others, read dozens of articles on these websites that demonstrate how flawed the anti-vax viewpoint is:

Neither McCullough, nor Malone, nor Kirsch, nor any of the other anti-vax nut-jobs are specialists in the treatment of respiratory illnesses such as COVID-19. Nor are they epidemiologists or immunologists. Of those three, Malone doesn’t treat any patients and he hasn’t done any active research in decades. Kirsch has ZERO medical training. They have no more business pontificating on this topic than a dermatologist has on the topic of heart surgery.

McCullough doesn’t publish his nonsense for his peers. They think he’s a nut-case. He publishes this for gullible lay people. McCullough is grifter. He probably has some sort of need to receive accolades and validation. Since he can’t get that from his peers, he’s getting it from ignorant and gullible people.


I wish I had a dollar for every time I’ve seen this in the last three years. What does “do your own research” mean for the average Bruce in the street? Google, basically. And what comes up top of the list when you search? The sites with the most traffic. And which sites have the most traffic? You see where this is going.

The interesting thing is that you find it interesting. I give this topic about 5 more minutes.
