Reuters reveals how an ex-Pfizer scientist became an anti-vax hero


Michael Yeadon was a scientific researcher and vice president at drugs giant Pfizer Inc. He co-founded a successful biotech. Then his career took an unexpected turn. In a special report, Reuters detailed how in recent months, Yeadon has emerged as an unlikely hero of so-called anti-vaxxers, whose adherents question the safety of many vaccines, including for the coronavirus. The anti-vaxxer movement has amplified Yeadon’s skeptical views about COVID-19 vaccines and tests, government-mandated lockdowns and the arc of the pandemic.
