There’s a priceless headline on Reuters this evening:
“Is it safe? U.S. vaccine experts want to build trust”
The Centers for Disease Control are working overtime to assure people that they have nothing to fear from the new @untested new vaccines created in response to government proclamations on swine flu.
And the most important part of assuring that people can trust the vaccine?
A total waiver of liability for the vaccine producer. This assures that, if the vaccine does harm people (dozens, hundreds, millions, whatever), the victims will have no recourse.
Of course, the vaccine victims could always write their congressmen. Assuming that they can still write. (This recourse has worked out great for victims of the Gulf War Syndrome) .
