Finding Resources you can TRUST is always a challenge. Vaccination News has emerged to be one of the best. Vaccines stimulate a huge number of articles, blogs, opinions, rage and oftentimes flat out misinformation. Being able to have a resource that helps you find the valuable studies and emerging data is priceless! Keep up the GREAT Work!!!

VaccinationNews has helped us on our journey after we suspected something was quite wrong with the 'normal side effects' our son experienced after vaccination. It helped us put on a different thinking cap so that we could grieve, learn and share. Thanks for helping us not feel so alone with our battle between our experiences versus the paradigm that vaccines are safe!

Vaccination News is an incredibly valuable resource for scientific information about vaccination and its under-recognized adverse reactions. It's a daily must-read for me. I use the articles posted on Vaccination News for blog and facebook posts. There is really no other resource that has such comprehensive news for this scientific information.

I'm a graduate of the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business and I use statistical models to advise financial institutions. One of the mottos of the UC Berkeley Haas Business School is: 'Challenge the status quo.'

The medical status quo is the 3rd largest cause of death in the US (medical mistakes). Vaccination News helps people to avoid becoming part of that dreadful statistic.

Vaccination News performs a valuable service in capturing and making available medical news stories regarding the subject of vaccination. I refer to this web site constantly to stay abreast of the latest developments in this field. For instance, vaccination news archives one of the most important articles on vaccine adverse reactions by a Neurologist Dr. Poser who is professor of neurology, Department of Neurology, Harvard Medical School, Boston This article is not available anywhere else. http://www.vaccinationnews.com/DailyNews/2003/May/17/NeurologicalComplications17.htm

Increase their budget

I could not have written my book "Evidence of Harm" without Vaccination News - the most thorough online compendium of real-time news and analysis from around the world. Whatever your views on vaccination are, this is a vital and useful site.

I am an author, journalist and blogger (Huffington Post, Take Part, etc) who has written about vaccine safety issues for 10 years. During that entire time, there has never been a more comprehensive site covering vaccine news stories of the day than this one. It makes my work go so much more efficiently.

After my son was diagnosed with "autism" in 2000, one of the first people I met in the virtual world, and whose website site I relied heavily on was Sandy Gottstein. I obtained enough information to realize even then that there was a connection between autism & vaccinations. Sandy's website vaccinationnews.com is still to this day a wealth of information where one can find articles dating as far back as 2000 and beyond. At a time when finding these articles, one had to dig. Not many knew then or even cared. Many people know today, but alas, sadly few in the position of power care!

Sandy was one of the first to express concern for the conflict-of-interest between an industry, namely the FDA; that was suppose to regulate safety of vaccines and their ties with the pharmaceutical industry. The industry they were suppose to regulate.

Many in my family were not convinced of my concerns until they started researching this issue, and they relied very heavily on Sandy's site for their information. I used articles found on Sandy's site for my own yahoo group, autism & vaccinations (now defunct).

Sandy is dedicated to educating the masses on vaccinations, both the good and the bad. She's non-biased about her approach. She just puts it out there for others to decide. See, Sandy doesn't have a child effected by autism. THAT is the one thing that impresses me the most about her. She's trying to educate others on an issue that she has NO PERSONAL STAKE IN!!!

God bless Sandy for all that she has done and continues to do to this day. All though she lives in Alaska and I, in Pennsylvania and we only met in the real world a few times in DC during the Dan Burton hearings of thimerasol and vaccine safety; I truly consider Sandy a true friend and champion for those who can't fight for themselves!

Vaccination News provides detailed, relevant information for anyone confused or overwhelmed by the mass amount of misinformation on vaccinations. I personally appreciate the updated emails. I have referred many to this organization for vaccine questions.

As I have investigated questions about vaccines over the past several years, I have frequently had occasion to use the resources of Vaccination News. This is a unique, extremely valuable resource. Most news sources on vaccines are highly biased, either promoting vaccines without reservation or condemning vaccines without reservation. Vaccination News provides a considered middle ground, with information submitted from many credible viewpoints, including information which is unavailable anywhere else. I have found the articles by Dr. Edward Yazbak on the site to be particularly insightful and useful. I strongly support this information resource on this crucial area of health.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My research -- having access to its archive and current resources has been invaluable.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ensure it had more stable funding; I know this is the most vexing problem Vaccination News has.

VaccinationNews is the premier organization for presenting both sides of the vaccination debate without being indebted to either government or industry. The author of this review maintains a web site which focuses on vaccination and vaccine exemption information. A google search reveals we have over 50 links to VaccinationNews on our web site to flesh out our own information web pages. Many parents owe a debt to VaccinationNews for the presentation of information and viewpoints that facilitate making informed choices. Many organizations have a vested interest in promoting only one side of the vaccine debate; this deficiency has been overcome by the independent editorial policy of VaccinationNews.

Researching topics involved in locating difficult to find vaccine information.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make no changes. Each information source provides a unique place viewpoint.

Vaccine news not only educates people about vaccine dangers, they provide a common sense outlook on childhood diseases. I am a survivor of a vaccine injury and the sad thing is most people think vaccines are without risk.

I would give them more funds to serve more people!
