Calvin Cheng urges Govt to “punish the twelve quacks” who warned against Covid-19 mRNA vaccines

Strip them of their licence to practise, he says

Singapore — Punish the 12 quacks, ex-NMP Calvin Cheng thundered against the 12 doctors who in an open letter to parents said children should be given traditional and not mRNA vaccines.

The doctors’ letter, originally posted on the HardwareZone forum, cast doubts on the efficacy and safety of the mRNA vaccines.

Both the vaccines approved for use in Singapore — Pfizer BioNTech and Moderna — are mRNA vaccines.

And the Government has recently announced children 12 to 15 years old will be given the Pfizer vaccine.

The Pfizer vaccine is safe and effective for children aged 12 to 15, assured the Expert Committee on Covid-19 vaccines, rebutting the doctors’ letter.

Eleven of the 12 doctors have themselves retracted their claim after a backlash from the Government.

Unmollified, the former Nominated Member of Parliament Calvin Cheng wrote in a Facebook post he was “aghast and disappointed by the unscientific and unprofessional way in which these doctors have interpreted scientific evidence and conducted themselves”.

“It creates confusion and fear in the public and propagated myths and untruths,” he said.

Mr Cheng said he was glad to see other doctors stepping up and speaking out against such untruths.

“The fight against Covid-19 will continue to evolve as new data and development present themselves. We need to navigate this with scientific rigour and not let our emotions or personal biases create more confusioN,” he stressed.

Denouncing the doctors who criticised the mRNA vaccines, he added:

“This is dangerous behaviour by the group of doctors. In a crisis, they undermine confidence in vaccines.

“I call on the authorities to strip them of their license to practise.

“Especially Dr Khoo Boo Kian, who did not retract.”
