Abstract

“Given the assault on science that we are likely to see over the next four years in the U.S., SHEA must lead by ensuring that all of its recommendations are solidly based in evidence and that expectations for compliance with interventions correlate with the strength of the evidence,” notes Michael Edmond, MD, clinical professor of internal medicine and infectious diseases at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. “Just as we must defend vaccines from false claims of adverse effects, we must also truthfully acknowledge their limitations and shape our policy on science not opinion.”
