A NZ doctor has slammed the anti-vaccination movement at a screening of one of its movies.

Doctor Lance O’Sullivan angrily took to the stage at a screening of the controversial movie Vaxxed in Kaitaia on Monday evening to tell those gathered he was not there to see the film, reports STUFF NZ.

“I’ve come here … to continue my battle and my challenge for my people … and importantly, for our children.”

“I come here with a lot of anger … and that’s because I am adamantly opposed to this because this position, this idea of anti-immunisation has killed children around the world and actually will continue to kill children … whose parents are put off immunisation because of misinformation – misinformation based on lies, quite frankly.”

He added: “Your presence here will cause babies to die”.

Vaxxed was directed by discredited scientist Andrew Wakefield, whose fraudulent research linked the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine to autism in 1998.

  • wow he is amazing! sadly i think that basically no-one there would listen to him as it is hard to change people’s minds once they are set on something. I think that he is very admirable though for trying and with him being a doctor, you would like to think that he would be able to influence those who are sitting on the fence.


  • I would like to think It might have done some good. They should have to watch films of children suffering from severe cases of mumps, measles, rubella, whooping cough, chicken pox, tetanus, typhoid, malaria etc. These people are not likely have vaccinations for some diseases if they go overseas too.


  • I can appreciate his passion but wonder if his action has any effect ?


  • Good on him!
