By Robert F Kennedy Jr
Kennedy reminds Biden that first as a candidate, “and later as our president, you promised to give Americans a COVID vaccine program rooted in honesty, transparency and rigorous science.”
Kennedy asks Biden to “intervene now to fix the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System and order the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to adopt an open-source, science-based, functional and verifiable surveillance system that can rebuild public trust.”

Dear President Biden:
We write to ask you to fix the HHS’s catastrophically inefficient surveillance system for vaccine injuries. Genuine transparency, robust science (unbiased data gathering and analytics), and a functional surveillance system are the only ways to end widespread vaccine hesitancy, and to build public trust for the COVID-19 vaccine program.
The “Warp Speed” vaccine program allowed pharmaceutical companies to abbreviate clinical trials and rush experimental, unlicensed EUA [Emergency Use Authorization] vaccines to Americans in, what health officials acknowledge is, a population-wide experiment. HHS regulators justified this shortcut by promising to implement a post-licensing surveillance system that would detect vaccine injuries and allow public health authorities, physicians, and Americans to understand the risks and benefits for each of the various vaccines. However, HHS officials are instead adopting procedures designed to hide COVID vaccine injuries — particularly deaths — from the public and to obscure safety and risk profiles.
The sad reality is vaccines cause injuries and death. In the two and one-half months since the U.S. began our COVID vaccination program, there have been 31,079 injuries and 1,524 deaths reported after COVID vaccine. What is also undeniable is that the U.S. is not doing enough to find more about these injuries and deaths, and why some people are more susceptible than others to injury. In this age of individualized medicine, a mass vaccination program that abdicates all responsibility to protect vulnerable subgroups is reckless and unethical.
