I use Visual Basic / ASP.NET on IIS 7.5.  Want the "Cache-Control" header to be sent with a value of "Public" and I do NOT want the "Vary" header to be sent.  The following code sets the "Cache-Control" header to "public" with a lowercase "p" instead of an uppercase "P" and it does NOT remove the "Vary" header.

How can I customize the value of the "Cache-Control" header and remove the "Vary" header?
Imports System.Web
Imports System.IO
Namespace org.HeaderHack
	Public Class CustomHeaderModule
		Implements IHttpModule
		Public Sub Dispose() Implements IHttpModule.Dispose
		End Sub
		Public Sub Init(context As HttpApplication) Implements IHttpModule.Init
			AddHandler context.PreSendRequestHeaders, AddressOf OnPreSendRequestHeaders
			AddHandler context.PreRequestHandlerExecute, New EventHandler(AddressOf OnPreRequestHandlerExecute)
		End Sub
		Private Sub OnPreSendRequestHeaders(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
			HttpContext.Current.Response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.Public)
			HttpContext.Current.Response.Headers.Remove("Vary")

		End Sub
		Public Sub OnPreRequestHandlerExecute(source As [Object], e As EventArgs)
			Dim url As [String] = HttpContext.Current.Request.FilePath.ToString()
			Dim ext As [String] = Path.GetExtension(url)
		End Sub
	End Class
End Namespace
