Patient discussion about safety

Q. what measures are in place to ensure the safety of vaccines. Hello there, I read the previous question which was asked by Edmund. This question made me to think, what measures are in place to ensure the safety of vaccines.

A. Not only related to Autism, we have to be very cautious when we vaccine for other diseases too. As with all medical products, vaccines undergo extensive testing to document their efficacy and to explore potential harms. Before a potential vaccine is licensed for use, FDA scientists conduct a thorough and independent review of the testing data and often employ the help of an FDA public advisory review committee. In addition, FDA rigorously oversees the manufacturing process for vaccines used in this country - including approval of each step in the process and on site inspection. Following licensure, vaccines continue to be monitored through information shared by parents, doctors, and other public health officials.

Safty's reconstruction of the twists and rums in the Egyptian-Israeli negotiations is particularly striking against the backdrop of the recent Palestinians-Israeli negotiations.
In reality, as Safty demonstrates, opposition to the Accords cut across wide sections of Egypt's political and intellectual classes, and importantly opposition was not against a peace with Israel per se, but against Sadat's unilateral concessions on Egypt's negotiating principles which required Israeli withdrawal from all occupied Arab territories, restitution of Palestinian national rights, and achievement of a comprehensive peace treaty.
"Egypt," the Free Officers concluded, "has committed itself to Israeli security, but has overlooked its own present and future security." (p.101) Because of its immediate applicability to the present, Safty's book should be read by every Arab desirous of placing the PLO-Israeli accords in historical perspective.
Safty examines the conventional discourse about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict against Israel's 1982 invasion of Lebanon and the subsequent Palestinian Intifada.
