The United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is the federal department in which all health agencies, including CDC, FDA and NIH, are located.  On October 2017, ICAN sent HHS a letter demanding that it explain serious and dangerous shortcomings in vaccine safety.  HHS, after review and approval by the CDC, FDA and NIH, sent a response letter in early 2018.  After we carefully reviewed every document they cited, we responded on December 2018 and to-date, despite follow-up, HHS has still failed to address the serious vaccine safety issues raised.  ICAN soon intends to take HHS to court for failing to abide by its vaccine safety obligations.  In the meantime, get a cup of tea or coffee, and get ready to finally read the great vaccine debate so that you can arm yourself to make an informed decision the next time you must choose whether to vaccinate yourself or your child.
