Now it heads on to the Senate!
• Vaccine safety and monitoring should be of top concern to ensure the health and well-being of our future generations.
• Potential vaccine related deaths are not currently being evaluated to the best of their ability.
• This bill will help improve vaccine safety and allow data to be evaluated in a new way.
• Death is a reported adverse event for all vaccinations on the CDC schedule.
• Less than 1% of all vaccine adverse events are reported.
• The US is LAST among developed nations for its high infant mortality rate, despite having the largest vaccine schedule.
• Given the lack of data available due to an underutilized reporting system, it is concerning that SIDS research isn’t looking further into this data set as potentially playing a role in SIDS death cases.
