Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Testifies on Vaccines

Robert Kennedy Jr. is in Springfield today advocating to Illinois state lawmakers about the need for more research on vaccines.  At a Senate Executive Committee Hearing, Kennedy said, the CDC procedure for putting new vaccines on their schedule is “corrupted” because of financial interests with the vaccine industry.  “They are not putting them on the schedule as a public health mission, but rather for financial mission,” said Kennedy.

At the hearing, Kennedy also mentioned there should be more transparency before forcing families to vaccinate their kids. “The checks and balances that would normally protect our children from dangerous vaccines or from too many vaccines…have been eroded.”

Kennedy finished up his testimony urging state lawmakers to push the CDC to study the link between vaccines and autism.
