The status quo is unacceptable.
It should go without saying that no one making public health decisions that will directly affect the lives of millions of United States children and indirectly affect the lives of millions of international children through our global influence should have any ties to the pharmaceutical industry. But sadly, this is not the case.
The US urgently needs, and taxpayers firmly deserve, ethical leadership in government, industry and media who are free from conflicts both before and after taking the job. The far-reaching health decisions made need to be driven by solid and truly independent science, not personal bank accounts.
Here’s a sneak-peek of the information covered in this comprehensive document:
- How the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Compensation Act Began a “Gold Rush.”
- Who Benefits When There is No Liability? Follow the Money.
- Federal Agencies’ Roles as Cheerleaders and Are They Shirking Their Public Duty?
- Facts About Specific Vaccines.
- Learning From History.
- Tainted Science.
- Untrustworthy Research.
- Scientific Censorship in Action.
- Are Front Groups Cozying Up to Pharma?
- Should Your Doctor Get an Incentive For Vaccinating Your Child?
Don’t Silence the Debate …
“Debate on vaccine safety is a Kafkaesque taboo on network news channels, which accept upwards of $5.4 billion annually from pharma, or on the editorial pages of America’s newspaper conglomerates, many of which have financial ties to drug companies. …Instead of fact-based discourse, the debate… has devolved into ‘argument by credential’ and its corollary, ‘argument by insult.’ By reducing the issue to a binary choice—you’re either pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine— journalists marginalize safety advocates…, vilify the parents of vaccine-injured children and silence debate on a complex issue. …The American public is entitled to an honest, probing and robust discussion about this critical public health issue—a debate based on facts, not rooted in fear, nor on blind faith in regulators and the pharmaceutical industry.”
—Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
What Can Concerned Citizens Do?
Three urgently needed steps include repealing the NCVIA, eliminating vaccine mandates and establishing a fully transparent and independent vaccine safety commission. It is essential that conflicts of interest be addressed so that sound science—rather than deep pockets—can form the basis of vaccine policy-making.
Using this ebook, concerned parents, health care professionals, legislators and others can rise up and lend their voices to these reasonable requests so that conflicts of interest can be abolished once and for all, and sound science—rather than deep pockets—can form the basis of vaccine policy-making. The health of our children hangs in the balance.

The IOM has authored dozens of influential reports on vaccines. However, the organization’s independence on this topic is open to question, because it draws its members from the ranks of the very same government agencies, schools of medicine, schools of public health, hospitals and private foundations that have uncritically supported existing vaccine policies for decades.
The culture of dishonesty and ethical violations that characterizes the U.S. vaccine enterprise is deeply entrenched and given the CDC’s aggressive determination to leave “no child unvaccinated,” the agency’s longstanding vaccine criminality should be troubling to all Americans.
Officialdom’s wish to keep vaccination’s unflattering track record out of the public eye is nothing new and there is a chasm between vaccine rhetoric and reality for most if not all vaccines. However, four vaccines offer especially instructive before-and-after case studies.

Laughing All the Way to the Bank: Vaccine Makers and Liability Protection—Conflicts of Interest Undermine Children’s Health: Part III
When it comes to telling the story of vaccine injuries and how frighteningly commonplace they have become, denial, censorship and lies seem to be ruling the day—for now. However, future public health historians will surely acknowledge that the unprecedented health crisis beleaguering American children began around the same time—1986—that Congress let the genie out of the bottle by passing the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA).
NCVIA: The Legislation that Changed Everything—Conflicts of Interest Undermine Children’s Health: Part II
In 1986, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA), radically altered the vaccine policy landscape in the United States. It essentially abolished vaccine injury lawsuits against vaccine manufacturers (or health providers), giving pharmaceutical companies what amounted to blanket immunity from liability for injuries resulting from childhood vaccines, while also exempting companies from the transparency and document discovery normally associated with litigation.
With this article, CHD is launching its second eBook: Conflicts of Interest Undermine Children’s Health. This part outlines the political developments in the late 1980s that allowed fateful changes in the childhood vaccine schedule to happen and describes the widespread conflicts of interest that continue to overshadow the U.S. vaccine program.
