Feb 22, 2017 03:33 PM EST

President Donald Trump has revealed that he might develop independent scientific commission to investigate vaccine's safety. The approach was discussed by the president with Robert F. Kennedy, an environmental lawyer.

According to WJLA, Kennedy has pushed members of Congress on Capitol Hill to investigate the safety of vaccines. The environmental lawyer has a different perception regarding the safety of vaccine. Government and other medical establishment have stated that there is no any scientific reason to be concerned with the side effects of vaccine.

During the news conference, Kennedy stated that he was contacted by Trump revealing his idea to form an independent scientific commission regarding vaccine safety. However, after talking with the press, he immediately revealed that Trump's administration declined the plan.

Furthermore, Kennedy revealed that Trump is aware that the pharmaceutical industry will be one of the obstacles in conducting the investigation. The lawyer also added that he will still continue with his advocacy regarding the safety of vaccines.

One of the concerns of Kennedy regarding vaccine's safety is its side effect. What are really the common side effects among vaccines? According to NHS, it is natural that when a person gets vaccinated he will suffer from some acute side effects.

The common and acute side effects of vaccine includes; pain, swelling and redness in the injection site, mild fever, shivering, fatigue, headache, and muscle or joint pain. A less common but serious side effect is called anaphylactic reaction or allergic reaction. This is a life-threatening body reaction but less than the possibility of one in a million whole.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have further revealed that all legally available vaccines in Unites States were required to go through different studies and extensive trials to assure its quality, effectiveness and safety. When newly formulated vaccines are licensed, concerned government sectors will continue to monitor each vaccine to prove its safety.
