Dear Sandy,

I have been meaning to write this note for a while but have been away on holiday for a couple of weeks. I write to praise the efforts of Sandy Gottstein and her friends and thank you for all the valuable work you have performed and support you have provided to interested parties all over the world for so many years.

It is sad that financial constraints have put the Vaccination News at risk of being lost to us. However, we all realise that such problems are facts of life for those of us who are not toeing the party line with regard to sacred cows such as the vaccination industry. Perhaps “golden goose” would be a more accurate analogy.

Sandy’s work and views came to my attention many years ago when I “met” her though internet discussion groups. Her ideas and information were very helpful to me and instrumental in allowing me to interpret what I was seeing in front of me.

Most of us laboratory based researchers just do not have the time to scan the literature for ourselves, to track down publications or to go through all the detailed interpretations. Sandy’s efforts make it possible for us to keep up-to-date with developments and to address issues as they appear.

In order to get to the truth it is as necessary to read and understand all points of view even if it does not accord with our own. Sandy’s work is particularly important in this respect. It is a privilege and a pleasure to be able to access this information as and when required. I am delighted that Sandy has managed, for the time being at least, to keep the operation afloat and hope that supportive funding is located in order to keep such an important information tool afloat.

With very best wishes, gratitude and admiration,

Paul Shattock
