From our friends at Autism Action Network. Comments due today - use the link below.
The Institute of Medicine (IOM) has begun a purported review of the alleged safety of different vaccination schedules and has invited the public to comment on the scope of the study. The public comment period ends on July 31 so click on the link HERE and register your thoughts on the vaccine schedule and vaccine policy.
It is important to note that your survey answers and comments, as well as all other personal information you enter as part of the survey, will be published in a Public Access File in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA).
The Institute of Medicine is a consulting group run by the National Academies of Science that has shown itself to be a reliable defender of the status quo far more concerned with justifying current policies (and the careers of current policy makers) than functioning as the independent watchdog it pretends to be. Nonetheless, the IOM is required to include public comments and therefore provides a vehicle for criticizing the vaccine schedule and the way vaccine policy is made in the US.
This is a great opportunity for health-conscious individuals everywhere, including those who have experienced first-hand the devastating effects of vaccines, or who know a family member or friend who has, to share their concerns about vaccines with a group that is well-respected among many in America and around the world. But it is important that you submit your comments by July 31 to ensure that the IOM receives them and includes them as part of its assessment considerations.
The IOM has issued a preliminary report where they layout some of the issues that the IOM may consider as this process goes forward: HERE
