The presentation to the American Institute of medicine (IOM) about the Hepatitis B programme in New Zealand was a full folder, which included Professor Ralph Edward's findings of the catch-up campaign, and further documentation of the events relating to the memos which preceded the removal of Hepatitis B from the "at birth" schedule in New Zealand. There was clear, unequivocal e...

In the early 1990s, the American National Institute of Medicine (IOM) was mandated to enquire into the safety of childhood vaccines.

Emboldened by Bill Gates comment that" vaccines are miracles" on his 16th February blog, Offit et al have set up the Vaccine Research Foundation. Following this announcement, Melinda Gates came up with this Huffington Post plea ahead of their GAVI meeting in London next week.

It's that time of year again, when the annual magical crystal ball from Lance Jennings predicts that Swine Flu will swarm back to mop up, hospitalise and possibly kill some of those not-previously-whacked-by-the-pigs-that-flew last time. He's obviously missed the fact that others have moved on, and are demanding that everyone be vaccinated for the next pandemic, H2N2, NOW!... The fir...
