Asked in HIV and AIDS, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

What name did the CDC have for HIV before it was HIV?

User Avatar
Former Names For HIV I'm not sure there is a clear answer to this, due to how the question is worded. Part of this comes from the separation of HIV from AIDS as source vs. medical condition. The other part comes from the timeline that extends long before what most consider the beginning of HIV and AIDS (circa 1980 or slightly before). AIDS was originally called HTLV-3. HTLV-1 is distantly related to HIV and is found mostly in Japan and the Caribbean,... www.thebody.com/Forums/AIDS/Infections/Archive/STDs/Q5161.HTML An incorrect, but common answer would be GRID(Gay Related Immunodeficiency Syndrome), which was rejected by the CDC. Source and original citation: http://biotech.law.lsu.edu/Books/lbb/x590.htm#fnB129 In short, if another name can be identified by another contributor, I think it might miss the bigger issue which ties all the different names used during the evolution and continued understanding of HIV and AIDS. Read on for more from WikiAnswers contributors: Previous names for the HIV are: lymphadenopathy-associated virus (LAV) human T-lymphotropic virus-III (HTLV-III) AIDS-associated retrovirus (ARV) The first name for HIV that was officially adopted by the CDC (in 1984) was human T-lymphotropic virus-III (HTLV-III). In 1981, when the syndrome that is now known as AIDS was first observed in a cluster of gay men in California, the CDC did in fact refer to it as GRID (Gay-Related Immune Deficiency); but this was replaced with the term AIDS (in September 1982) when it was realised that it was not just gay men who were affected. The previous answer states that AIDS was originally known as HTLV-3. This is not correct - and you will no doubt also note that careful reading of the cited source: "HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, was originally called HTLV-3" does not actually say that either. The original name for HIV (which is not the same as AIDS) was lymphadenopathy-associated virus (LAV) and was first used by Luc Montagnier when he announced the discovery of the virus in 1983. (this name was however never officially adopted by the CDC). The term human T-lymphotropic virus-III (HTLV-III) has only ever referred to HIV - and was first used by Robert Gallo in 1984 (a full two years after the term AIDS had been officially adopted by the CDC). The term human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was first agreed and officially adopted in 1986. Given that HIV and AIDS are not interchangeable terms and that HIV was not even discovered until 1983, any other "timelines" are wholly irrelevant. It is only with the benefit of hindsight that isolated instances (spanning back to the late 1950s), of people mysteriously developing unexplained (and unnamed) immune deficient conditions, have been tied back to what we now know as HIV and AIDS.

User Avatar

This interim guidance is meant to inform and educate management, unions, and employees about appropriate precautions and work practices to minimize the risk of potential employee exposure, illness, and the spread of novel influenza A (H1N1) flu in the workplace through general prevention and preparedness strategies and in the event that a worker becomes ill. The guide includes sections on: * Prevention of Illness in Well Employees * Management of Employee Exposure in the Workplace after a Confirmed Case * How Businesses Can Respond to the Impact on their Operations and Employees It includes a link to a joint informational publication from the US Government Department of Labor and the US Department of Health and Human Services for OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration).

Does the CDC have the right to force people to get vaccine?

User Avatar
Answer 1: No. You have the right to decide whether you want a vaccine or not, but doing what the CDC wants is definitely the wise thing to do. This is primarilly a legal and ethical issue. The CDC is a government agency charged with disease prevention and research; it is not an enforcement or police agency. An important tennant of US culture is the freedom of the individual. The government is not generally permitted to force an individual to do things when it is merely for the good of that one person. So, except in most eggregious situations, extremely resistant tuberculosis is one example, competant adults cannot be forced to accept a vaccination. Answer 2: The US Supreme Court has ruled that you cannot be forced to take a vaccination - but you can be restricted from activities without the vaccination (which is a way to force the vaccination by another means). For instance, if you refuse a vaccination you can be refused participation in any public program (even if that is a force program like attending public school - so you will be jailed for not attending school, even though they refuse to let you attend because you refuse a vaccination. IE: Forced vaccinations by any other name). A provision in the Patriot Act, and follow up acts, allows for the government to declare a national medical emergency and force a vaccination on anyone, or if you refuse, they can jail you until the emergency is passed or you take the vaccination; many states have state laws that are the same. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is an arm of the US Public Health Service which is overseen by the Surgeon General of the US (a cabinet level position). Under certain limited government-declared health/disease emergencies the Public Heealth Service (in order prevent or reduce the spread of communicable diseases throughout the general population) is empowered to require individuals to become treated or immunized. Under 'normal' situations the Public Health Service "recommends" that certain steps be taken in order to prevent the spread of illness and disease but they do no have the power of law, UNLESS - Congress or State governments adapt these recommendations and give them the force of law (e.g.: the requirement that children entering school must have immunizations against certain communicable diseases).

What are the legal responsibility of the CDC to inform the public of the risks of a vaccine?

User Avatar
this is a good one, legally they are supposed to..do they? No- most vaccines are very dangerous and it is not made public knowledge- they are laced with mercury and other toxins and although the medical comm. and the fda and other entities swears they are not, its untrue- so to answer your question, they are legally obligated to inform you of any proven dangers (proven being the key word here) do they? Nope!
