This popped up on Facebook today. The claim in the red box is:
Vaccines have a "package insert" which is a huge dump of federally mandated information. Section 13 seems to be covered by §201.57 :
Misinterpreting vaccine package inserts is a constant source of misinformation in the anti-vaccine community. There are multiple detailed articles on the topic listed at the end of this article:
Which also discussed "The Section 13 Vaccine Conspiracy?" However this "conspiracy" is not that section 13 is missing, but rather that it's there, and states that testing has not been done.
For example, here's the section 13 for Gardasil:
Non-clinical studies are studies done using animals. There's also a section 14, listing clinical studies done on people. In the case of Gardasil it discusses how to prevents cancer.
Despite all the discussion of how people are misreading the insert, there seems to be an unanswered question here (or at least a difficult-to-google question): WHY is section 13 missing in some vaccine inserts?
It is actually missing in the Pneumovax 23 insert:
I suspect the reason might be essential that it was not applicable, and was omitted because it was confusing people into thinking the product was unsafe. But now we've got this conspiracy theory that they are deliberately hiding information.
So why was it omitted, and what bit of the law allows it to be omitted?
