Who is Dr Sean Brooks? PhD's apocalyptic anti-vaccine warnings go viral, spark outrage

Sean Brooks says say in the video, “Dr. Robert Malone, who created the messenger RNA [mRNA] vaccine has said no one should ever take these jabs ever, under any circumstance whatsoever -- he created it! And he says, ‘Don't ever do it!’"

A viral video has taken the internet by storm and is being touted online by anti-vaccine folks as a must-watch. The video is being shared online as a supposed doctor’s chilling testimony of what happens when one takes the Covid-19 vaccine — "The people who have taken it are going to die in the next 6 months to 3 to 5 years."

This viral video comes in the wake of the Joe Biden administration’s announcement on Wednesday, August 18, that Covid-19 booster shots would be available starting September 20 for American adults who received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. The US will provide a third shot to Americans who received their second vaccine dose at least eight months ago, pending authorization from the US Food and Drug Administration.

"This will boost your immune response. It will increase your protection from Covid-19," President Biden said. "That's the best way to protect ourselves from new variants that could arise."

Who is Dr Sean Brooks?

The viral video features a man called Sean Brooks, who was seen speaking at what is being reported as an “SW Ohio School Board Meeting”. It is not clear if that refers to the Ohio School Boards Association Southwest Region or the Southwest Local School District. 

The video sees a bald man approach the mic in an auditorium of sorts and introduce himself. He says, “My name is Dr Shawn Brooks, PhD, Oxford. I have 48 publications, including 23 books. I've studied health medicine, anatomy, and physiology for approximately 21 years.” He adds, “Dr Robert Malone, who created the messenger RNA [mRNA] vaccine has said no one should ever take these jabs ever, under any circumstance whatsoever — he created it! And he says, ‘Don't ever do it!’"

There’s much to break down here. But first and foremost, in the very beginning, he introduces himself as a PhD — not a medical doctor. There seems to be very little information about him online.


In the comments section of the video published on, one person asked, “I saw this on another channel. I like to cover my basis and do my own digging on this stuff. So I tried looking up this published doctor. I can’t find anything on him. I would have asked this on the other channel but the comments are blocked. Can anyone else?” To this, another person responded with, “I found something that appears to be the same guy on quite frankly channel but that guy said his profession was in education. Not a medical doctor.”

Another person shared an Amazon author link to that of Sean M Brooks, a man whose books include titles like ‘Violence Among Students and School Staff: Understanding and Preventing the Causes of School Violence’, ‘The Unmasking of American Schools: The Sanctioned Abuse of America’s Teachers and Students’, ‘Purposeful Deception: The Inside Plan to Communize and Destroy American K-12 Education,’ and more. It’s unclear if this is the same person at all.

Brooks, in his speech, referred to Dr Robert Malone as the person who supposedly “created the messenger RNA vaccine”. That claim too has some problems with it. As per an August 12 report in The Atlantic, Malone started popping up on podcasts and cable news shows a few months ago, presented as a scientific expert, arguing that the approval process for the vaccines had been unwisely rushed.

He reportedly told Tucker Carlson that the public doesn’t have enough information to decide whether to get vaccinated. He also reportedly told Glenn Beck that offering incentives for taking vaccines is unethical. He is slowly becoming an anti-vaccine ideologue. And he’s always billed as the mRNA inventor — a credit which he touts very often as well. “I literally invented mRNA technology when I was 28,” Malone, who is now 61, told The Atlantic.

Malone reportedly did work on this in the late 1980s at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. He also wrote two papers on it. But as per Rein Verbeke, a postdoctoral fellow at Ghent University, in Belgium, and the lead author of a 2019 history of mRNA-vaccine development, while Malone and his co-authors “sparked for the first time the hope that mRNA could have potential as a new drug class,” the achievement of the mRNA vaccines of today “is the accomplishment of a lot of collaborative efforts.”

It is unclear what Dr Sean Brooks’ credentials are. But if his own words are to be taken into consideration, he is not a medical doctor. And what he cites in his little speech is also not the most reliable information.
