The Center of Disease Control Receives Funds Based On Vaccine Sales:

The CDC’s largest funded role is to promote vaccine use and they are measured on their effectiveness.
1. The CDC is given billions of dollars to promote vaccine use, and is the government body that also monitors vaccine adverse events and reports on safety.  This is a conflict of interest of the worst kind for our children.
2. CDC only receives a handful of millions of dollars to monitor vaccine safety.
3. The CDC uses manipulative tactics to “Foster Demand” for vaccines.
a. Example: A CDC presentation on vaccine promotion outlines manipulative tactics to influence the public to vaccinate.

In the presentation "Recipe that Fosters Higher Interest and Demand for Influenza Vaccine" by  Glen Nowak, Ph.D., Associate Director of Communications, National Immunization Program.  Full document available here:
