My financial interests in that vaccine have been sold out by either The Wistar Institute, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, or me. I will, however, continue to stand up for the Science of vaccines because unfounded fears about vaccines have hurt children. That is why I do what I do and why I have always done it.
