In addition to weakened or killed disease antigens (viruses or bacteria), vaccines contain very small amounts of other ingredients - excipients or media. 

CDC vaccine excipient and media summary

A US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) vaccine advisory group today voted to include FluMist in the vaccine line-up for the 2018-2019 flu season, returning the vaccine to the US market after a two-season hiatus.

A Century of US Water Chlorination and Treatment: One of the Ten Greatest Public Health Achievements of the 20th Century

In 1908, Jersey City, New Jersey was the first city in the United States to begin routine disinfection of community drinking water.  Over the next decade, thousands of cities and towns across the United States followed suit in routinely disinfecting their drinking water, contributing to a dramatic decrease in disease across the country.

​Vaccines are considered one of public health’s greatest success stories. But is all promotion of vaccines necessarily a good thing, or does it depend on the details? Peter Doshi investigates the semi-transparent world of vaccine advocacy organizations 

The unofficial vaccine educators: are CDC funded non-profits sufficiently independent?

​A four-month investigation by United Press International found a pattern of serious problems linked to vaccines recommended by the CDC -- and a web of close ties between the agency and the companies that make vaccines.

UPI Investigates: The vaccine conflict

The CDC’s June 15 article in MMWR, which slams “chronic Lyme” treatments—and by extension, Lyme patients and the doctors who treat them—continues to draw sharp responses from the Lyme disease community.

​Realizing that many of their constituents do not support more gun control, anti-gun advocates in Congress are looking for creative methods to change public opinion. What better way than under the auspices of science?

That is what is behind the renewed call for Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) funding to “research gun violence.” It’s not objective data gun control advocates seek. They have a pre-determined outcome. Now, they just need some government-sponsored, taxpayer-funded data points to validate their anti-gun agenda.

Ask yourselves, should a public health agency that is supposed to make impartial vaccine recommendations, also be a private for profit company with an impressive portfolio?
