I've made several calls to the CDC demanding an answer.

Can they confirm that DHS is protecting the thousands of children in detention centers from the spread of communicable diseases by providing medical
assessments to treat those who are ill and vaccinations upon arrival?

So far - crickets.

Yesterday, it was reported that DHS asked the CDC to investigate the death of a second child they've detained, presumably from the the flu.

It's clear DHS is NOT doing their job in providing medical
care. They and the WH are acting helpless and trying to spin what amounts to neglect by blaming the families.

Where is the CDC in all of this? Not doing their job either.

I want answers. So far I have none but I'll keep trying.

3. CDC is under the umbrella of Dept of Health and Human Services

which is currently run by trump appointee, Alex Azar, former president of a major pharma and member of the board of directors of a pharma lobby.

This, and the current trump shutdown are the probable reasons for their avoidance of this topic of concern.

4. Urge your congresspersons to do the same.

Particularly if they are Democrats. Remember, they can start a hearing in, what, 6 days?

5. If one kid had the flu, it's likely hundreds of them have the flu.

6. The children probably need vaccinations, too.

But I wouldn't want them to receive them unless a parent was with them to provide medical history, comfort, and to advocate for their child.
