This is just another Trump administration disaster inflicted on the scientific community. There is not a single credible scientist or medical profesional who will serve on a committee chaired by the science denier Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
President-elect Donald Trump has met with Robert F Kennedy Jr., a notorious vaccine denier, today. The two will discuss “the issues pertaining to vaccines and immunizations.” And whatever tiny spark of hope that maybe Trump was pandering to the anti-vaccine wing nuts for votes has been put out with a bucket of water.
The announcement that Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. will head up a panel on vaccine safety for Donald Trump is horrible news for the country. For more than a decade, Kennedy has promoted anti-vaccine propaganda completely unconnected to reality.
