Paul Offit in NYT



On the recent Poling vaccine-injury case:

The system [the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, financed by a tax on every dose of vaccine] worked fine until a few years ago, when vaccine court judges turned their back on science by dropping preponderance of evidence as a standard. Now, petitioners need merely propose a biologically plausible mechanism by which a vaccine might cause harm -- even if their explanation contradicts published studies.
