Vaccine safety: British are less sceptical than Europeans, but younger people need assurance

Re: Vaccine safety: British are less sceptical than Europeans, but younger people need assurance

Heidi Larsen and her esteemed colleagues provide a link to the CHOP website as proof that studies have been carried out to demonstrate the safety of vaccines given to children. There are no safety studies for any vaccine given to children on this website. No safety studies have been carried out. If I am wrong then provide a link to primary published research documenting just one safety study for just one vaccine given to children.

Competing interests: My group researches the safety of aluminium adjuvants in vaccines and we have received funding from the MRC, CMSRI and Bencard Allergie in the last 5 years.
