Questions requiring responses from HHS:
· Will parents be informed that the manufacturer (and everyone involved in justifying, planning, and executing the program) is shielded from all liability by the PREP Act?
· Whose children will be sought as subjects and who will bear responsibility for a child’s injury?
Approval of this HHS-proposed experiment would be a throwback to the ignoble history of US-government sponsored medical experiments that brought shame to our nation, including the Tuskegee and Guatemala syphilis experiments, and numerous tests that exposed disadvantaged children to diseases, radiation, dangerous drugs,  and lead poisoning.
