The National Vaccine Information Center marks 30 years of dedication to the prevention of vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and defending the informed consent ethic in medicine.
|Barbara Loe Fisher is co-founder |
and president of the National
Vaccine Information Center
This organization, located in Virginia, works to protect the freedom for citizens to exercise the human right to voluntary, informed consent to any medical intervention or use of pharmaceutical product, such as a vaccine, which carries a risk of injury or death.
If you are thinking about getting a vaccine or administering them to your child, NVIC recommends asking 8 questions:
1. Am I or my child sick right now?
2. Have I or my child had a bad reaction to a vaccination before?
3. Do I or my child have a personal or family history of vaccine reactions, neurological disorders, severe allergies or immune system problems?
4. Do I know the disease and vaccine risks for myself or my child?
5. Do I have full information about the vaccine’s side effects?
6. Do I know how to identify and report a vaccine reaction?
7. Do I know I need to keep a written record, including the vaccine manufacturer’s name and lot number, for all vaccinations?
8. Do I know I have the right to make an informed choice?

NVIC also publishes a free online NVIC Vaccine eNewsletter to keep consumers informed of the latest information about vaccines and infectious diseases and offers tools like NVIC's Advocacy Portal that helps consumers protect vaccine choice in their state and the Vaccine Ingredient Calculator to assist consumers in becoming knowledgeable about vaccines, existing safe standards for toxins found in vaccines and a printable vaccination plan to facilitate parent-health provider dialogue.
Also, be sure to visit the NVIC Diseases and Vaccines webpage, which provides information on risks and benefits associated with vaccines. This page is great resource.

The National Vaccine Information Center has created a Memorial to honor individual vaccine victims.
The Memorial also offers families around the world the opportunity to post stories and photos about what happened to their loved ones so that others can become educated about the signs and symptoms of vaccine reactions in order to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths.
The hope is that, by honoring those who are casualties of mass vaccination policies, there will be greater public awareness of the need to value and care as much about those who are harmed by the complications of vaccines as we care about those who are harmed by the complications of infectious diseases.
This International Memorial for Vaccine Victims is offered to the world as testimony of the need to protect the biological integrity of life on this planet.
Happy 30 years NVIC!!!!
