Parents are demanding open access to government databases that claim vaccines are safe.
Vaccines are given to healthy children and carry an inherent risk of injury or death; and
federal officials recommend vaccines for universal use and states base their mandatory vaccination laws on those recommendations; and
national monitoring of vaccine reactions is almost non-existent because there is no enforcement of a 1986 federal law requiring doctors to report adverse events to the federal government; and
the vast majority of vaccine safety studies are conducted by government health officials promoting the mandatory use of vaccines and drug companies selling vaccines; and
the government bases its research and conclusions that licensed vaccines are safe on unpublished data, including data contained in closed government-operated databases, like the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD), and
the hallmark of good science is replication and the hallmark of good government is transparency.
we call on the Secretary of Health, Tommy Thompson, to provide the public, especially non-government, non-industry affiliated vaccine researchers, with full, open and timely access to all government vaccine safety monitoring data, including the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD).
