The Great Double-Talking Vaccine Scientist
Notes From The Memory Hole
Matt Orfalea’s latest mashup takes on Dr. Peter Hotez, bowtied mass-producer of contradictory health advice

Few health figures have been more visible during the pandemic than Dr. Peter Hotez. Interviews by the Director of the Texas Children’s Hospital Center for Vaccine Development are a master class in modern day branding, as the good doctor seldom appears without an instantly recognizable ensemble of lab coat, specs, and bow tie. (If cable TV had a Halloween Party, Hotez-in-a-bag would surely have been one of the most popular get-ups from 2020 on.) Hotez advertises his marketing acumen, making sure every time he appears on air that the shot is crammed with posed copies of his books. He’s become a legit pop culture phenom, appearing with Trevor Noah, TMZ, CNBC, CNN, Fox and beyond.
Like Dr. Anthony Fauci, Hotez was among the most prominent members of the “Your child will die in shrieking agony if you don’t get the shot” school of pandemic messaging. As Matt Orfalea’s brutal new video shows, however, he accrued more contradictory dosage recommendations on this score than Imelda Marcos had shoes.
For those of us who wanted to believe authorities, such messaging about the safety and efficacy of mRNA vaccines, and the necessity of inoculation to save not only our own lives but those of our children and our neighbors’ children, was powerful stuff. “If you wait,” you see him saying, “it’s going to be too late to protect your child.”
How could you not believe him? He’s in a lab coat! But fear not: “I’m strongly recommending for adolescents to get their two doses of vaccine,” he said. “Two doses of vaccine are fully immunized.”
As Orf shows, Hotez from there went on to release one sad-trombone update after another. First: “We’re seeing that two doses is not holding up well for emergency room visits.” Then it was, “You need that third immunization, triple the amount… We were always a three dose vaccine.”
Then the third immunization didn’t “hold up,” either, so: “We have to consider some out of the box things — a fourth immunization.” Next: “A fifth immunization. Five.”
But don’t worry, “I don’t think we’re gonna need an annual booster like flu,” until he said exactly that, only worse: “Every, you know, few months, we may need another booster.”
