Re: Vaccine safety: British are less sceptical than Europeans, but younger people need assurance
As one of the few independent research groups anywhere in the world researching vaccine safety I can confirm that John Stone in his rapid response is correct.
There has not been a single vaccine 'safety study' on any vaccine given to children (up to the age of 18) there have only been vaccine efficacy studies. To repeat what I have written over and over again in this format in this journal only the Government perpetuates the myth (fake news as some would call it) that all vaccines are safe for everyone. It is the Government that creates vaccine hesitancy and one does have to wonder why?
Competing interests: We research vaccine safety and we have recently received grants for this purposed from the MRC, CMSRI and Bencard Allergie.
