Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Tapped for Trump Vaccine Panel

President-elect Donald Trump met with Robert F. Kennedy Jr., outspoken critic of vaccine safety about heading a task force on the subject.

Kennedy said, “President-elect Trump has some doubts about the current vaccine policies and he has some questions about it.”

“And that everybody ought to be able to be assured that the vaccines that we have — he’s very pro-vaccine, as am I — but they’re as safe as they possibly can be,” he added.

Kennedy was editor for the book Thimerisol: Let the Science Speak, where he connects major diseases with the mercury-based preservative. He writes:

Big money has fueled the exponential expansion of CDC’s vaccine schedule since 1988, when Congress’ grant of immunity from lawsuits suddenly transformed vaccines into paydirt. CDC recommended five pediatric vaccines when I was a boy in 1954. Today’s children cannot ­­ school without at least 56 doses of 14 vaccines by the time they’re 18.

When asked what his goal would be in leading a task force on vaccines, Kennedy said, “To make sure that we have scientific integrity in the vaccine process for efficacy and safety of vaccines.”
