Please Let Us Vaccinate - Michele Maiers of Northwestern's President's Cabinet Begs Federal Government

Maiers is Executive Director at Northwestern & President of the American Chiropractic Association

Michele Maiers DC, MPH, Ph.D a Member of the President's Cabinet at Northwestern University of Health Sciences (Formerly Northwestern Chiropractic College) and Executive Director of Research & Innovation there, begged the federal government to add chiropractors to the list of eligible providers so they can inject the COVID vaccine.

As chiropractors around the country grapple with all of the mandates thrust upon them over the past year or so and as they deal with the prospect of forced vaccination for themselves and staff, it was shocking to find out that the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) was behind the scenes "urging" the Department of Health and Human Services to let chiropractors inject the experimental vaccine.

Now even more shocking is that a member of the senior leadership housing a chiropractic college is begging the government to allow chiropractors to inject the vaccine.

Maiers wrote to the White House and Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith from the Office of the Covid-19 Health Equity Taskforce and Norris Cochran in the Department of Health and Human Services.

In her letter to the federal government falsely claiming to represent 70,000 chiropractors in the United States Maiers states:

"ACA is working to coordinate information and guidance from the CDC and other credible sources for use by chiropractors around the country. Please consider adding chiropractors on the list eligible to provide vaccinations and please use us as a resource and point of contact for the chiropractic profession for your offices. We are prepared to speak in more detail about how members of the chiropractic profession can be of greater service to your efforts and the communities in which they work and live."

Far from representing "70,000" chiropractors in the United States according to the ACA's most recent publicly available tax forms the ACA took in $3,213,025.00 in dues for 2020. The ACA's yearly membership runs $660. At those rates the ACA has less than 5000 Doctors of Chiropractic as dues paying members.

Maiers continued in her deceptive letter to the Federal Government that chiropractors "indeed fall under the definition" of a Qualified Person to inject the experimental vaccine under the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act, Pub. L. No. 109-148 §2, 119 Stat. 2829 (2005) for the administration or use of a covered countermeasure.

Maiers is no stranger to controversy at Northwestern as she was involved in activities that were the subject of a complaint sent to the Department of Education by a student enrolled in Northwestern's Chiropractic school. The complaint was related to Northwestern automatically signing chiropractic college students up as members of the American Chiropractic Association and then forcing them to go through the process of resigning their membership if they didn't want it. Northwestern claims it changed its policy following complaints by students about whether student activity fees were being used to pay for the student memberships. This would be a concern since those fees typically come from student loan money. The new policy allegedly allows students to opt out of the automatic ACA membership sign up.

Maiers was also involved in the fiasco involving the World Federation of Chiropractic's (WFC) flawed immunity hit piece related to COVID as one of its authors and a member of the WFC's Research Committee that produced and disseminated the document. The WFC, ACA, Parker University and several state boards endorsed the WFC document which falsely claimed that there was no credible evidence regarding the role of chiropractic and immunity. Chiropractors around the world were subsequently hauled before regulatory boards for such discussions with the public.

In an about face from what she claimed in the WFC document Maiers claims in her letter to the White House and the HHS that chiropractors can treat COVID claiming:

". . . we are committed to eradicating this dreadful disease."

In addition to her Senior Leadership role at Northwestern, President of the ACA and ACA representative to the WFC, Maiers serves as the principal member in the health policy and advocacy division of Northwestern Health Sciences University. She is Section Councilor of the Chiropractic Health Care Section of the American Public health Association. And she is a Graduate of Northwestern Chiropractic College.

Neither the President of Northwestern nor the Board of Trustees of the school have issued any statement about Maiers' actions. Northwestern has 5 (five) chiropractors on the Board of Trustees including:

  • Todd Ginkel, DC - Vice-Chair of the Board, a member of the Finance, Facilities and Audit Committee, and a member of the Executive Committee.
  • Christopher D. Jo, DC - Chair of the Board of Trustees and Chair of the Executive Committee.
  • Keith M. Johnson, DC - Member of the Executive Committee and Finance, Facilities, and Audit Committee.
  • Bonita (Bonnie) R. Myhers, DC - Member of the Committee on Trustees.
  • David E. Peterson, DC - Member of the Institutional Advancement Committee.
