The science on vaccines is not settled

“No doctor in California, or public health official at the CDC in Atlanta, can accurately predict whether or not a child will suffer brain inflammation, injury or death after vaccination… While we are all born equal under the law, we are not all born the same, and we do not all respond the same way to pharmaceutical products.

As the Institute of Medicine has repeatedly stated in published reports, some of us are genetically and biologically more vulnerable to being harmed by vaccines, but doctors cannot accurately identify who we are, because of large gaps in the vaccine safety science. The fact that science has not adequately defined who among us is at high risk for vaccine complications does not mean that our lives are less deserving of protection than those at high risk for the disease complication.

The science is not clear. It is not settled. Health officials do not know how many vaccinated children and adults transmit infections to others without being diagnosed or reported, including to immune compromised people. It is an illusion that severely immune compromised children will not get sick if all the other children in the school are vaccinated.”

— Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC)
