What does that even mean?

Unavoidably Unsafe Vaccines

Folks should first understand that it is a term used by lawyers, not doctors.

“Basically, it means that there is nothing that can be done to make the product safer without compromising the function of the product. The term comes from the legal document, “Restatement (Second) of Torts, Section 402A,” and it is about protecting manufacturers from frivolous law suits, not about providing consumers with health information. The basic idea is simply that companies cannot be held accountable for an injury that arises from unavoidably unsafe products because there was nothing that the company could have done to prevent that injury (inherent in this term is the requirement that the product was manufactured correctly, labelled correctly with adequate instructions for how to administer it, etc.).”

Vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe,” but that doesn’t mean they are dangerous

It came up again in a recent Supreme Court case that reaffirmed that vaccines are safe.

Remember, these vaccines are FDA approved and have been found to be safe.

The unavoidably unsafe thing relates to liability and doesn’t mean that vaccines are in any way dangerous or risky.
