Kulldorff famously co-authored the Great Barrington Declaration in 2020 that advocated against universal lockdowns

Epidemiologist Martin Kulldorff, a professor of medicine at Harvard University since 2003, announced on social media Monday that he was “fired” by the university.

“I am no longer a professor of medicine at Harvard,” Kulldorff wrote in a lengthy essay in the City Journal, also posting the news on his X account. “The Harvard motto is Veritas, Latin for truth. But, as I discovered, truth can get you fired.”

Kulldorff was a prominent opponent of vaccine mandates and school closures during COVID-era debate about the regulation of schools and businesses. He, along with Professor Sunetra Gupta at Oxford University and Stanford’s Jay Bhattacharya, released the Great Barrington Declaration in 2020, which “argu[ed] for age-based focused protection instead of universal lockdowns, with specific suggestions for how better to protect the elderly, while letting children and young adults live close to normal lives.”
