Professor Ken Flegel, an editor of the Canadian Medical Association Journal, wrote an editorial last fall supporting mandatory flu shots for healthcare workers. I blogged about his standard for vaccination last November, but did not critique many other problems with the article. Somehow, like Perry Kendall, Dr. Flegel got his citations (and his ideas) all wrong.
Makes you wonder if they really write this stuff themselves… how can they be so vehement when they apparently don’t know the subject or the relevant literature?
Flegel got his comeuppance from many expert authors. I encourage you to read their comments here, as they are both edifying and amusing.
