National Vaccine Advisory Committee Seeking Comment on CDC's Vaccine Safety Agenda
Posted Jan 26 2009 12:00am
Urgent Action Needed Today!
You have an opportunity to comment on CDC's vaccine safety agenda. Electronic responses are preferred and may be addressed to vaccinesafetyRFI@hhs.gov. You can send a personal story, like the hundreds of comments left on Dr. Paul Offit's piece on HuffPo, or touch on one of the topics at the end of this post.
The official deadline is 2/2 but comments that are filed today by 5 will be summarized and included in the folders for the NVAC vaccine safety working group. There are a few revealing sentences in the NVAC document. CDC concedes on page 33 that"[u]sually simultaneous vaccination is incompletely studied at time of licensure." And this one on page 17: "Little is known about the immune gene expression changes that occur after vaccination; even less is known about immune genes expressed during an [adverse event following immunization]." Is this finally an admission that the vax schedule is an experiment and the government is treating a generation of kids as lab rats? Read the full (this is the home page for the National Vacccine Advisory Committee working group.)
It is extremely important that our voices be heard, both as individuals and as organizations. Without constructive engagement, there will never be change. So, please take the time to make a paper trail, and, if possible, attend this and the other upcoming meetings.
HERE is a pdf of the Federal Register Announcement:
SUMMARY: The National Vaccine Program Office (NVPO) is soliciting public comment on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Immunization Safety Office (ISO) draft Scientific Agenda related to scientific research questions in vaccine safety.
