The US Supreme Court and the Safety of Vaccines

Hosted by

Hannah Bruesewitz is now 19 years old, but she'll need special care for developmental impairments caused by a vaccination, when she was 6-months old. By a vote of 6 to 2, the US Supreme Court today sided with the drug-maker Pfizer and the Obama Administration and ruled that she's not entitled to monetary compensation -- even though a safer vaccine was available.
