Dr. Peter McCullough testified to the Texas Senate Committee on Health and Human Services on June 27th, 2022.
Since I listened to him give a speech last summer, I have told everyone that I know that Dr. Peter McCullough is the most important doctor in the world.
His knowledge of the medical literature and his work-ethic are world-class, but more importantly, his compassion for his patients and his integrity to the Hippocratic Oath are unshakeable.
If and when Republicans take over Congress, the American people deserve to see a three-hour nationally televised roundtable discussion between Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Below is a transcript of Dr. Peter McCullough’s latest presentation to the Texas Senate.

Dr. Peter McCullough
I’m a practicing internist and cardiologist in Dallas, Texas, and I'm an expert on covid-19. I have fifty-six peer-reviewed publications on the pandemic particularly on how to treat the infection and over seven hundred and seventy overall publications in the national library of medicine and well over a thousand overall medical communications.
I've served on two dozen data safety monitoring boards for large pharmaceutical and device and individual diagnostic studies and I consider myself both an expert on covid as well as drug and device and biological agent safety.
Here are my comments.
Early Treatment as a Community Standard of Care
There has always been a duty to treat covid-19. It started with the very first case as soon as we recognized that this was a potentially fatal infection.
When a patient could have died of this infection at that moment and we understood it early based on risk stratification, based on age, medical problems, and severity of symptoms upon presentation there was a duty to treat that patient. Period.
If a doctor did not treat that patient when that patient sought help there was a duty to refer. From the very beginning there was a community standard of care. From the beginning, it evolves over time.
In many situations like this or in rare diseases the community standard of care may be one doctor in that community who's going to take on the challenge of treating that patient but that becomes the community standard of care early. There was use of a variety of drugs that became standard of care as evidenced by surges in use of these drugs and they included hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, prednisone, and budesonide.
There were giant surges in use of these drugs as evidence that these were outpatient evolving standard care. Now there's a surge in use of paxlovid and a minor surge in molnupiravir.
There has always been a community standard of care for early treatment. Lesson learned from this committee — there's been eight hours of testimony today — not a single presenter could tell you what patients in these data sets received early treatment and what was their outcomes.
Not a single presenter knew who had received early treatment and what was the degree of complexity of that early treatment. Lesson learned, next pandemic, get immediately an outpatient early treatment committee together.
Their objective is to reduce the risk of hospitalization and death. That is the overall objective of this pandemic keep people out of the hospital and keep them alive.
If they can get through this illness at home that was your mission from the very beginning on early treatment. Fortunately it's now been about 1400 studies there have been hundreds and hundreds of randomized trials and we know that sequenced multi-drug therapy that addresses viral replication, inflammation, or cytokine storm, and thrombosis is the approach in handling this.
Dr. Proctor is here, he's published two very good studies right from the state of Texas. Vladimir Zelenko in Monroe New York, Dr. Raoult in France, all the data are cohesive that the early protocols very early had 85 percent reductions in the risk of hospitalization and death.
Now with monoclonal antibodies, paxlovid, and others, I've testified under oath in the U.S. Senate on January 24th, 2022, based on my expert opinion there is now a 95 percent risk reduction for death and hospitalization if early treatment is provided.
Conversely, I've reviewed hundreds if not thousands of reports of patients who are hospitalized and died, hundreds if not thousands of reports, the outcome of hospitalization and death is a product of not receiving early treatment. Whether someone's vaccinated or not, the vaccination is irrelevant because the vaccination is not a treatment what's relevant is was the patient treated before the hospital.
And every single case and every single patient outcome that I can see the reason why they're in the hospital is they received either zero outpatient treatment or they received inadequate treatment that was received too late. So a committee like this, lesson learned, is always going to be about treating the next infectious disease early.
In terms of inpatient care and the overall landscape of what happened, I think the charge of the committee is pay attention to big developments, pay attention to these in may of 2020, there was a U.S. senate hearing on the use of corticosteroids. Pay attention to that.
That was a big event. You heard confusing testimony, there were some of these doctors who didn’t know if steroids worked or not.
There was a landmark event where it was clear that steroids worked and it should have rapidly been instituted as a standard of care in the hospital. Another giant development was I had published the first overall treatment protocol paper in a major medical journal August 7th of 2020, but rapidly after that in September of 2020 there already was a home treatment guide by the Association of American Physician and Surgeons [AAPS].
When there is a physician group that publishes a home treatment guide pay attention to that. Remember the infectious disease side of America always had the first set of guidelines, and then the NIH, they still to this day do not have a comprehensive outpatient treatment guideline.
That's the reason why AAPS filled in, Frontline Critical Care Network filled in, Truth for Health Foundation, [America’s] Frontline Doctors, and others. When other physician organizations based on consensus and data fill in the gaps — pay attention to that.
Very, very important, when an organization puts out a negative position on a drug. This is really important and it’s a worldwide organization, you must pay attention to this.
November of 2020, the World Health Organization says stop using remdesivir, stop it, it’s bad, it doesn’t work and it’s leading to more deaths, it leads to kidney injury and liver injury. The immediate thing this committee should have done is who’s using remdesivir in the state of Texas and let’s talk about it.
Now whether or not the NIH disagrees with the WHO that's got to be vetted but the question should have been asked we needed to re-examine this. Where Texans going to be hurt by this drug?
The World Health Organization and the European Society for Critical Care said yes and that went on under this committee’s watch. These are very very important lesson learned — pay attention to the big developments.
The covid-19 vaccines went through clinical trials and had two months of observation. The standard regulatory guidance was 24 months for life attenuated, killed, or antigen-based vaccines. These were genetic gene transfer technology vaccines — they're classified that by the FDA, they needed five years of observation — all that was thrown out.
There was no carcinogenicity, no meningitis studies, mutagenicity studies, teratogenicity studies. So when they came out they were, and still are today, emergency use authorized, investigational which means the consent form says we don't know if these work or not, and we don't know if they're safe long term, the consent form still says that.
Under your watch, vaccine mandates started happening in the state for investigational experimental products. We knew by January 22nd there was a problem because the U.S. CDC Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System had too many deaths that have already happened with the covid-19 vaccine than they had from all the prior vaccines combined.
January 22nd of 2021, the warning bells came off and then nothing happened. We knew on January 29th through freedom of information, our FDA and Center for Disease Control was supposed to be putting out monthly safety reports for America.
No safety report, lesson learned from this committee get a vaccine safety committee together get them together and start having them meet if you’re not seeing safety being provided at a Federal level. Remember it's safety, safety, safety.
It would have been wonderful if these vaccines would have worked, but it was all about safety, we now know through court-ordered documents, freedom of information documents, Pfizer knew about 1000 deaths within 90 days of release of their vaccine. Pfizer knew about it, we don't know if the FDA knew about it.
Nobody did anything and the freight train continued. Now, fast forward as death started to occur people started to get very very uncomfortable, you saw all the pushbacks, protests, all kinds of worldwide feelings of great vaccine hesitancy because people were dying shortly after the vaccine.
Papers were published 50 percent of the deaths occurred within 48 hours, 80 percent within a week. We know the vaccines installed the genetic material for the Wuhan spike protein that was manipulated in a biosecurity lab in Wuhan, China.
There are now a thousand papers published on the spike protein and the vaccines. A thousand that deal with vaccine injuries, and they're well characterized, and the FDA agrees the vaccines cause blood clots, the vaccines cause heart damage, the vaccines cause neurological damage.
They also cause well characterized immunologic and hematologic system damage. This is in the peer-reviewed literature, this is not equivocal, this is not a subject of controversy or debate, it's in our literature.
There are now brand new diseases named after covid-19 vaccine injuries. As of June 17th, 2022, our CDC VAERS system has been certified 13,388 Americans who have died with the vaccine so though either they've taken it electively or they were forced into it.
That’s 13,338 people have lost their lives prematurely due to these vaccines. The vaccines qualify by the Bradford Hill Criteria, which is an organized set of criterion on causality, they qualify as causing these deaths according to these epidemiologic criteria.
I'm a trained epidemiologist, I am an expert in applying these criteria on a more probable than not basis, and almost certainly clear and convincing that these vaccines are causing death. This month, the World Council for Health which represents 70 bodies worldwide has called for a global recall of all vaccines because worldwide 40, 000 deaths that these safety databases across the world forty thousand in the big ones VAERS, the Yellow Card System, VigiSafe, and the EUDRA system.
Forty thousand deaths with the vaccines, unacceptably high. Typical standard for any biologic product is 50 deaths, pull it off the market, something's gone wrong.
50, not 40,000. So when there is a global recall by an international organization this committee ought to be having emergency meetings.
What are we going to do? A worldwide body has called for these to pulled off the market, they're still giving.
You just heard from the pharmacy director ahead of me there's still giving them out when there's a worldwide call for a recall. There should be some committee meeting so you have it down.
I mean you can tell something is going wrong here that we're in trouble in terms of vaccine safety. Dr. Malone's covered vaccine efficacy which is largely waned I will just tell you that the CDC told us as of December 10th, 2021, with the omicron strain, 79 percent of people with omicron were fully vaccinated.
That is prima facie evidence that the vaccines have completely failed against omicron variant. Now, it’s inverted, the vast majority of people who are sick with covid-19 and in the hospitals worldwide with the omicron variant are fully vaccinated.
Censorship and Reprisal for Health Professionals
It is clear now that in the area of covid that it's open season for censorship and reprisal not just to physicians but of nurses and patients and family members and others and the censorship is because there is a global effort to mass vaccinate the population every six months and anything that would deter from that is going to be censored. So if a family member has lost a loved one after the vaccine that event if it's written somewhere what have you is censored.
We have widespread censorship in the medical literature now, in social media, and even in oral presentations. I presented here on May 10, 2021.
Five statements that I made here under oath are now subject of censorship and professional reprisal by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Every single statement I made just in my written remarks and my prepared remarks is cited.
The American Board of Internal Medicine and the Texas Medical Board — they don't have a monopoly on the truth. No one holds medical truth, there are always two points of view on everything or more.
So Senator Johnson has stepped in and called the American Board of Internal Medicine out to have a roundtable discussion on what's going on now is a giant sweep through the federation of medical boards through the the American Board of Internal Medicine American Board of Family Medicine, etc., and to have an open conversation.
They have not responded in fact they've doubled down and said they're joining forces with the American Medical Association again in an effort to inflict reprisal on physicians as myself who are attempting to help patients through covid-19 respond to the pandemic in terms of our patient care, our scholarship, and our research, and also give patients a fair appraisal on a brand new set of experimental genetic vaccines which for some patients now represents a mortal threat to them and we must have certainly a conversation about the risks and benefits.
So I think right now the most important thing that this committee can do is this committee probably ought to have a working group on censorship and reprisal at the professional level — doctors, nurses, patients, — who under the watch of DHS is actually incurring their constitutional rights being stripped away from free speech. What is going on in this state to actually impair medical progress, remember medical progress will not happen unless there is a roundtable discussion on something.
Several speakers a few minutes ago talked about a conversation between some doctors and a doctor who wanted to prescribe ivermectin. That conversation to me didn't seem very fair balanced it seemed like a disciplinary conversation.
There is no disciplinary conversations in a brand new novel coronavirus. This is all about getting the patient better.
The other thing I heard in that conversation is a very important act of censorship or a violation of medical ethics is Dr. Bob Hall presented a case where a family member wanted the discussion about ivermectin of a patient in the hospital. There is a principle of medical ethics called shared decision making when you're a patient in the hospital you actually have a right to discuss what you want to have happen with your body.
If you're taking a medicine as an outpatient and you want to take that as an inpatient that's called medication reconciliation you have that full right to do so, no doctor can lord over you, and say no you can't have that medication. If you've had a fair balanced discussion and the drugs like ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine are supported by hundreds and hundreds of clinical trials, they're in dozens of government guidelines elsewhere in the world as first line therapy, any American, any Texan has the right to receive these drugs in the hospital when they engage in a discussion with their doctor.
Under no circumstances should any doctor refuse a patient share decision making and their own personal autonomy. It's unethical it's immoral and from a clinical perspective it's illegal and don't let it happen on your watch.
