[SVC comment regarding Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald, recently appointed by Health and Human Services Secretary, Tom Price, to succeed Tom Frieden as the director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): There is currently much speculation as to whether Dr. Fitzgerald will make any attempt to restore integrity and accountability to the CDC. In particular, CDC’s vaccine program — which RFK Jr. has called a “cesspool” of corruption — must be completely overhauled, including the removal of all profit incentive to benefit the CDC.
It’s worth noting that Dr. Fitzgerald is an obstetrician-gynecologist and a former president of the Georgia OB-GYN Society. As we observe Dr. Fitzgerald as she settles in at CDC, in keen hope that she will do the right thing for women, infants and children, let’s never forget that most of the official package inserts provided by the vaccine manufacturers contain language similar to the following:
“Safety and effectiveness of have not been established in pregnant women or nursing mothers.” (See Doctors Give Flu Shots to Pregnant Women Despite Evidence of Harm to Fetus)
This is only the tip of the iceberg with regard to the harm caused by the current vaccination schedule. So, we watch, to see whether Dr. Fitzgerald will do everything in her power to protect informed consent and choice in medical risk-taking, including vaccinations.]

Our troops are up in arms over the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s article that ran last week, breaking the news that Trump is considering Brenda Fitzgerald, the Georgia Health Commissioner, as the new Director of the CDC. Her confirmation was announced by HHS two hours ago.
Is Dr. Brenda what we call “vaccine friendly?” Not in the slightest. Under her reign, Georgia instituted a requirement that notarized religious vaccine exemptions affirmed that vaccines are necessary to prevent the spread of dangerous diseases, vaccines are safe, and that unvaccinated kids are at risk of spreading those diseases to other people, including to the parent who is signing the exemption.
Three years ago Dr. Brenda wrote a love letter to the prenatal Tdap called “Babies Need Their Vaccines“ for the same newspaper that had the scoop on her federal appointment.
Do you know what really gets under my skin? Calling vaccines by a name that gives their ownership to a newborn. It’s gross. They are not the baby’s shots. They are Merck’s shots and Pfizer’s shots, and the pediatrician bought those shots, so if anything, they are the doctor’s shots. “Babies Need Doctor Shots” is a more accurate title for her essay.
In her letter she makes sweeping platitudes such as, “I’ve heard all the arguments against vaccination. All have been debunked.” Sweet Jesus, I don’t even know what she’s talking about– “all” of these vaccinated vs. unvaccinated studies that debunk the damage our children live with every day?
She signs off with, “I am a mother. I am vaccinated. And I ask you to join me.”
Bless her heart. This lady is 72 years old. She got all the way to the age of 10 before the polio vaccine was even invented. If we didn’t vaccinate kids until they were 10 our autism rates would be down to the 1 in 10,000 people that actually have a genetic predisposition for it.
Anyway. She’s obviously not a top 100 choice for any of us.
I don’t know why she’s been appointed. I watch House of Cards so I can only imagine the deals that go down before this kind of decision is made. She’s had political aspirations for a while; she’s run for Congress twice and lost.
In my opinion, the only business Dr. Brenda has being director of the CDC is if she’s there to dismantle it because she’d eventually be out of a job anyway, and Trump or someone else has promised to give her a juicy position afterward.
