Paediatrician suspended from IAP after raising voice against ‘nexus’ between vaccine manufacturers and doctors

Sunday, January 22, 2017

Bengaluru: Dr Vipin Vashishtha, a paediatrician who wrote on December 17 last year to all 24,000 members of the Indian Academy of Paediatrics (IAP) raising concerns over immunization guidelines being allegedly tweaked to favour certain vaccine manufacturers, was on Friday suspended from all memberships of the association, including as convener of the Advisory Committee on Vaccines and Immunisation Practices.

Following his suspension, Dr Vashishtha approached the Bengaluru police on Friday night against the IAP over his suspension from its advisory committee. In his statement to the police, Dr Vashishtha alleged he was manhandled at the IAP’s ongoing 54th annual conference Paedicon at Palace Grounds here. “They were upset that I exposed their wrongdoings,” Dr Vashishtha has been quoted by ToI as saying.

Congrats Dr. Vashistha , for whistle blowing against the nexus which is a open secret now, but most of fraternities , are helplessly under that clutch. In line with the article by Dr. Sundeep Mishra, ” the other side of the moon”— in true sense you have blown the whistle against the wrong doing, it will go a long way and effect against corruption!!!! LOVE and regards to you—-this will increase the stamina of common man of India.
