Dr Tan, I presume?

Google is a wonderful thing.

This letter on the ST Forum today did not come as a surprise to angry doc:

Dispel concerns about complications after vaccinating kids

I REFER to Tuesday's report, 'Immunise infants early, specialists urge'.

I would like to ask child specialists how much adjuvants are given to children in the form of aluminium and mercury salts in vaccines, besides preservatives, over a two-year period, under the Ministry of Health (MOH) childhood immunisation programme.

Scientists have shown that aluminium and mercury are foreign to our biological system and do more harm than good. Does MOH have a register of all complications related to childhood vaccines given in Singapore? According to vaccine package inserts, these complications range from mild fever to severe convulsions and delayed eczema.

In a 2007 clinical study of 300 babies aged between nine and 12 months at five SingHealth polyclinics, what was the adverse complication rate and the severity, in terms of morbidity and mortality? Are these babies followed up long-term and for how long?

Mothers' concerns about autism and vaccination are real. The incidence of autism is reported to be rising in Singapore. This issue has not been thoroughly addressed as to its causation.

Tan Soon Kiam

Sounds familiar?

On a whim angry doc decided to google Mr Tan's name, and it turns out that 'Mr' Tan may in fact be 'Dr' Tan.

In fact, judging from the topic of his 'concern', he may be the same Dr Tan we encountered on this blog more than two years ago.

Dr Tan, as we can see from his letters, is no heavy metal fan. Readers may wish to google his name to find out for themselves why this is so.

  • I think the point is that he is a really, really, really old anaesthesia dude who would rather die than be administered vaccines. He has apparently been fighting this vaccinations-kill-babies campaign since the early '90s. We sure have some oddballs in the medical fraternity.

  • I don't think its wrong not to put a Dr in front of your name while writing to the press. Unlikely to be a coverup.
    He is the Secetrary of SOCMTS. Go see who else is there. I'm a member too.
