(NaturalNews) In a letter dated February 23 and addressed to the members of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, the Coalition for Vaccine Safety (CVS) calls for congressional hearings to investigate and review the role of the Health and Human Services (HHS) department and its constituent agencies and to evaluate their performance in ensuring vaccine safety.1

"Congress should review the claims of HHS and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) that vaccines are safe with a jaundiced eye. The existing evidence on vaccine safety is grossly insufficient and fails to meet the requirements of public confidence."

The CVS goes on to point out that the HHS has not complied with mandates from Congress in a 1986 law titled The 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Compensation Act. That law, now codified as 42 United States Code: 300aa-1 to 300aa-34, reduced the potential liability of vaccine makers from vaccine injury claims.2 This law created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP).

As the CVS letter further points out, the requirements given the HHS under that law state that the agency must conduct testing and research to reduce vaccine-related injuries and that it has failed to do so. So far, no tests or studies which include both vaccinated and unvaccinated children have been done; little field surveillance and adverse reaction reporting is happening; and overall the HHS is ignoring their duty.

Further, the HHS has also ignored the spirit and intent of the Combating Autism Act of 2006 (now Public Law No. 109-416).3 The CVS calls on this provision due to the upcoming release of a finding from the Court of Federal Claims on its Omnibus Autism Proceeding. This involves test cases on the possible link between Thimerosal (a preservative containing mercury) and autism.

The letter then goes on to point out several examples of suppressed science, conflicts of interest in hearings and judgments, and more. These include several instances of prominent medical groups and doctors questioning the vaccination regimen and the lack of research into the causes of autism and its possible links to vaccination. Financial conflicts of interest between those charged with ruling on or researching autism-vaccine links are also well-documented.

This includes former CDC director Dr. Julie Gerberding who is now president of a well-known vaccine maker4 and her statements on CNN in 2008 to the effect that her industry's knowledge of negative health links and vaccines includes characteristics of autism.

The letter is hard-hitting, full of information, and was copied to the ranking members of the Senate Judiciary Committee as well.
