I am so grateful for this non for profit! I cannot thank Gina enough for all of her help. She and NCIV have been instrumental in providing a wealth of accurate, unbiased scientific information and assistance when my husband and I were struggling with finding helpful resources to guide and support us with important parenting decisions for our children. We are in a season where we are being judged and scrutinized for our parental choices. They were quick to be of help, empower and provide us with information, guidance and respond to our multitude of questions when were under scrutiny and rejected from our pediatrician's office for our parenting decisions.
I live in California worst state ever when it comes to vaccines so being that I have a 2 month old granddaughter I was concerned with her upcoming doctors appointment. I started doing some research online to see what my options were and I ran across this website. I emailed them and Gina Bernazzani Director of Counseling for NVIC responded, she was very helpful. I am truly grateful to have found a organization with such knowledge and resources.
I was given the shingles and Prevnar13 on the same day and in the same arm 10 months ago. I still have side affects. Swelling in my arm up my throat, in my face and onto my other arm. I turn a purple red at worst. I become breathless and hoarse throat. I'm very fatigued and emotional feeling fragile. I get nowhere talking with Sanford clinic. Hope to talk to the higher ups. Every organization from FDA CDC MERK and PHIZER tell me to go to the live virus information and they should follow that directive which states no other immunization with in 28 days. This organization has been very helpful
I just had a great experience with Gina Bernazzani of NVIC. I had a question regarding immunization laws in the 1990s, and although there were no relevant records in the NVIC files, Gina went out of her way to search for other sources that could be useful. I had tried searching online myself and found nothing, so Gina must have really worked hard to find these three different documents. Kudos to Gina for being so dedicated to public health!
Thank you, will be sure to pass on to Gina :-) So glad you found information we dug up to be of use.
I contacted the NVIC twenty years ago when my son whom I thought had totally recovered from autism became very ill again following a measles booster shot. I have followed their work ever since. Becoming autistic twice in one lifetime is two times too often. If you are looking for unbiased, scientific information regarding vaccines, NVIC is the place to turn to. I will be forever grateful for their amazing work, unrelenting focus and commitment to the truth.
As a parent, I found the Vaccine Policy & Law Reform Guide especially helpful in preparing for a mandatory meeting at the health department in order to obtain a vaccination waiver. NVIC does a fabulous job in clarifying the issues!
The National Vaccine Information Center has been a reliable and accurate source of support and information for me raising my children, as each vaccine has to be evaluated based upon its risk/benefit. I never would have known the "other side of the story" - how many vaccine damaged children are really out there. Parents have a right to know the risk/benefit information related to each vaccine, so they can make informed choices for their children.
So very thankful for a non-bias resource to help support my journey. So much information is available on the topic of vaccines and I have found NVIC to "top notch". NVIC is able to explain and source answers to questions related to vaccines and vaccine safe that is very helpful. I would recommend anyone interested in seeking knowledge on vaccines add NVIC to their resource list.
Thank you for your positive review of our resources. NVIC works hard to provide the public with credible information to assist in their vaccine decision-making process.
I was first introduced to NVIC 5 years ago at a Conference in Virginia. The entire organization from top to bottom is run with integrity. Everyone I met, volunteers, staff and representatives of NVIC were professional, knowledgeable and mission driven. What I really loved was the research and facts they brought to the conversation around vaccines, both documented and sourced. They do not tell people what to do, rather provide the information for consumer to make informed decisions. Thank you NVIC!!
Wow, thank you! We are very happy to hear that you were pleased with the conference and our support. Thanks for taking the time to give us such a wonderful review. We take our mission work very seriously and provide credible resources supporting our mission work and are very glad you found them helpful.
I had emailed NVIC inquiring if they knew why animal vaccines do NOT contain adjuvants, even with multiple dose vials. There is no mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, etc. in animal vaccines.
Also it is interesting to note that AVMA policy is now to only vaccinate every 3 yrs. It had been yearly. Titers to measure antibodies are also often used in pets, to determine if vaccine is actually 'needed'. It appears that vet med is more concerned with the welfare of their animal patients and/or their owners.
NVIC was very prompt in sending a helpful reply to my email.
Thank you for this wonderful review of our counselor response. We try very hard to answer all questions we receive. We hope the information we were able to provide was helpful for you and your pet.
