Dr. Rachael Ross is a a practicing board-certified family medicine physician and sexologist whose engaging manner and frankness has garnered comparisons to Dr. Ruth Westheimer.

A pioneer of groundbreaking discussions about relationships, sex, health, abstinence HIV/AIDS prevention and comprehensive sex education for teenagers, Dr. Rachael has spread her message to audiences across the U.S. on television, social media and numerous publications.

For Dr. Rachael, practicing medicine is something of a family business. She continues to practice in her hometown of Gary, IN, with her father, Dr. David Ross and her brother, Dr. Nathaniel Ross, while mom Ruthie serves as office manager. Dr. Rachael’s sister, Rebekkah Ross, was also a physician and part of the Ross Family Doctors’ practice until she passed away from complications related to sickle-cell anemia in 2011.

Dr. Rachael earned her M.D. from Meharry Medical College and her Ph.D. from the American Academy of Clinical Sexologists, along with a B.A. from Vanderbilt University, where she studied anthropology. She now lives in Chicago, and in her free time, refurbishes furniture, dabbles in interior design, maintains her medical practice in Gary, and commutes throughout the U.S. passionately offering “prescriptions for life.”

About Vaxxed:

The film gained notice when it was dis-invited to play at Tribeca Film Festival. It has been mis-labeled an “anti-vaccine” film when in fact it is calling for more research on the MMR and advocates for safe vaccines. Central to the film is a discussion of a possible link between the MMR and the onset of autism in a significant and ever-increasing percentage of children.

It will be released on 9/13/16.


The backdrop is the intractable, seemingly inexplicable and soaring rates of autism in the U.S. As little as 20 years ago, the disease affected 1 in 10,000 children; today, it’s 1 in 58. As discussed in the film, researchers at the Centers for Disease Control were ordered to destroy data of its flawed MMR study, which indicated a causative link between MMR and autism, and in particular a very high statistical association between the drug and young African-American boys.

This data was shown to Dr. Rachael who has since posted on her website that she is not following the CDC vaccination schedule any longer.

Vaccines are the only class of drugs in which drug manufacturers are exempt from liability. Should a parent file suit against a drug maker on behalf of his or her vaccine-damaged child, the case goes to the Orwellian sounding “Vaccine Court,” where settlements are paid by the U.S. taxpayer (not the drug maker).

    I totally believe this because my niece received the vaccine before 36 months and she is now 24 years old with a severe form of Autism. She, unfortunately can no longer live with her family due to her violent Disorder and very sensitive to noise and touch) Such a beautiful girl. She was thriving before she received this vaccine.

    If the MMR Vaccine is associated with a 236% increase in autism in African American boys if given before 36 months of age, why doesn’t the CDC change the vaccine schedule so Africian American boys can receive the MMR vaccine AFTER 36 months? is that so much to ask?

    • It is too much to ask. If they do so, they will have to admit there are issues with the vaccine which will cause even more of the public to take a closer look, more of the public will start to educate themselves and sales will plummet… can’t let the truth get in the road of a dollar.
