Vaccination suits

While the idea of law suits against vaccine manufactures is appealing. Opening these doors to a multitude of frivolous cases will have a chilling effect on vaccine development and vaccine use

Supreme Court Considers Vaccine Injury Case

On the list of snake oil challenges is the vaccine causes autism bunkum. Unsupported in any scientific study but perpetuated by a wide range of people who may have good intentions but are using their influence to damage years of hard work building vaccination programs and relegating serious and life threatening diseases to the  history books

Let's hope the Supreme court can take account of these effects as they consider this case. If not we could be in for a rash of diseases.
