Autism Action Network Alert: US Take Action: FDA head threatens state exemptions from vaccine mandates - Time for Trump to appoint a new head of the FDA


     In a report released by CNN on Wednesday, Scott Gottlieb, MD, the head of the Food and Drug Administration, threatened federal action to eliminate religious and secular exemptions from vaccine mandates to attend school in response to several hundred measles cases in a country of 330 million people. 

    "Some states are engaging in such wide exemptions that they're creating the opportunity for outbreaks on a scale that is going to have national implications." Gottlieb is reported to have said. If, "certain states continue down the path that they're on I think they're going to force the hand of the federal health agencies." 

    Several hundred cases of measles, a disease that was considered a routine childhood inconvenience a generation ago, can be manipulated as a pretext for draconian new federal powers, yet annual increases in autism of 50,000 to 100,000 new cases per year don't event merit comment. 

    Please click on the Take Action to send a message to the White House asking the President to replace Gottlieb with someone who takes seriously fundamental rights and relevant information for policy making. 

     And please call the White House at the number below and politely let the staffer know you would like to see a new head of the FDA.

   The vaccine industry is creating hysteria over a trivial measles outbreak to eliminate vaccination rights in the US. It's a program that worked successfully in California, France, Italy, Croatia and Romania, why not the rest of the United States?

    But the facts just don't support the hype. "Overall vaccination coverage among young children remained high and stable in the United States in 2017," according to the CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report of October 12, 2018.

     The vaccine industry's claim that measles vaccination rates are falling are not supported by the federal government's own statistics. According to the CDC's National Immunization Survey, there was no change in the percentage of children who received one or more MMR vaccines from 2013 through 2017, holding steady at around 91.5% with no statistically significant changes for the past 5 years. Children who are unvaccinated make up less than 1% of all children and pose no threat to achieving herd immunity.

It's better now - Dr. Gottlieb is gone.
He failed with autism, failed with opioids, failed with Juul, and failed to make a positive impact on our world. good bye and good riddance.

Very discouraging. This issues are too complicated for many with no medical background to understand. Some have no desire to understand. I have learned what I know piece my piece from dealing with my vaccine injured son's issues. He was vaccinated in the early 90's. The hospital where I work is a hot bed of pro vaxxers. Hard to explain things to the young women I am trying to warn.
Last night a young co worker was saying. My friend has an autistic son that is pretty bad off. Her second son also has problems. This child was not vaccinated according to my co worker. She did not have all the facts for me to try to explain how meds probably played a role. I left her with the hope if he got less vaccine hopefully he won't be as severe. Breaks my heart to hear of these situations. She said "Making decisions about vaccine is hard." It is so hard for me to live in the age of Autism. What an unnecessary waist of lives. So many disabled kids. I see so many on just one shopping trip alone.
I don't think Trump and company are doing anything to help anyone but themselves. Robert Kennedy alone has my trust. If anyone in government is helping us PLEASE print their name prominently. I don't know of anyone. Who are the vaccine choice candidates? Elizabeth Warren should be ashamed of herself. How dare she "Smack down parents of disabled children." It is about getting herself campaign money, but where is her empathy for those less fortunate. Autism is more difficult to deal with in many ways than the financial fraud she crusades against. Most parents of disabled kids deal with both medical and financial plights.
Politicians make me sick.

Pete, Thank you for the link. I agree with your comments. However, Gottlieb's plan may simply be to make more money for shareholders, so the plan makes perfect sense in that regard. The conclusion/solution recommended in the article is to add vaccines for adults with live virus and probably as many times as they deem necessary - since the criteria for additional doses is vaccine failure. With their criteria and ineffective products no one will avoid vaccination ever. The article also laments they have yet to convince ACIP to accept their recommendations. The use of of language admitting "mistakes were made in the past" is just there to make them seem more trustworthy - when really the game plan is unchanged - just expanded.

for FDA

Thanks for providing the telephone number AoA.
It took 9 minutes (8 on hold and 1 to talk). Felt GREAT.


Hearing on “Confronting a Growing Public Health Threat: Measles Outbreaks in the U.S.”
Wednesday, February 27, 2019 - 10:00am
2123 Rayburn House Office Building

Oversight and Investigations (116th Congress)

The Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee will hold a hearing on Wednesday, February 27, at 10 am in the John D. Dingell Room 2123 of the Rayburn House Office Building, on the current measles outbreak and response efforts. The hearing is entitled, “Confronting a Growing Public Health Threat: Measles Outbreaks in the U.S.”


New one today (22nd Feb 19), yet more evidence they haven’t got a clue what they are doing with vaccines, showing clearly the absurdity of Gottlieb‘s plan.

“all children who were primed by DTaP vaccines will be more susceptible to pertussis throughout their lifetimes”
