Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education, Health

Mission: The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is dedicated to the prevention of vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and to defending the informed consent ethic in vaccine policies and laws. As an independent clearinghouse for information on diseases and vaccines, NVIC does not advocate for or against the use of vaccines. We support the availability of all preventive health care options, including vaccines, and the right of consumers to make educated, voluntary health care choices.

Results: NVIC's co-founders worked with Congress on the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, which acknowledged that vaccine injuries and deaths are real and that the vaccine injured and their families should be financially supported and that vaccine safety protections were needed in the mass vaccination system. The law set up a federal vaccine injury compensation program, as well as included legal requirements for vaccine providers to give parents vaccine benefit and risk information before their children are vaccinated; keep written records of vaccine manufacturer names and lot numbers for each vaccination given; enter serious health problems following vaccination into a child's permanent medical record; and report serious health problems following vaccination to the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS). In 1996, NVIC realized a major goal when, after 14 years of public advocacy, the FDA finally licensed a purified pertussis vaccine (DTaP vaccine) for American babies. In 1999, the live virus polio vaccine (OPV) was replaced by the inactivated polio vaccine and vaccine strain paralytic polio cases were eliminated in America. Co-founders and members of NVIC have also represented consumers on the Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines, the National Vaccine Advisory Committee, the Institute of Medicine's Vaccine Safety Forum, the FDA Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee, the Vaccine Policy Analysis Collaborative, and the Consumers United for Evidence-Based Healthcare, Cochrane Collaboration – U.S. In 1989, the organization held an International Scientific Workshop attended by pediatric neurologists, epidemiologists, neuroimmunologists, molecular biologists, bacteriologists and neuropathologists to evaluate the neurological complications of pertussis and the whole cell pertussis vaccine. In 1997, 2000, 2002 and 2009 NVIC held the International Public Conference on Vaccination, which brought together more than 500 doctors, scientists, health officials, lawyers, ethicists, journalists and parents from 34 states and five countries to the U.S. Capitol to present new scientific data about vaccines and diseases and discuss the biological mechanism of vaccine-induced injury, death and chronic illness. Since 1982, NVIC has reached millions of families and provided information about diseases and vaccines to thousands of parents, health care providers and other individuals around the world through our free NVIC Vaccine E-newsletter, website and social media efforts. NVIC also operates a Vaccine Reaction Registry, and online public forums on vaccine harassment and failures. In 2010 the NVIC Advocacy Portal was launched as a public service to provide support and information on changes in state vaccine policy and laws, which has created a grassroots network of activists engage to protect vaccine informed consent.

Target demographics: The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is dedicated to the prevention of vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and to defending the informed consent ethic in medicine.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Last year alone NVIC responded with life-saving information to over 9,000 individuals who contact us annually with questions about vaccines and disease.

Geographic areas served: The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is a national charitable, non-profit educational organization founded in 1982. NVIC launched the vaccine safety and informed consent movement in America in the early 1980's and is the oldest and largest consumer led organization advocating for the institution of vaccine safety and informed consent protections in the public health system.

Programs: Since 1982, NVIC has operated a Vaccine Reaction Registry and provides the public with a forum to post vaccine harassment and failure reports to our website, as well as founded the International Memorial for Vaccine Victims. NVIC’s website also provides to the public information on vaccines and disease to support informed decision-making, and many other resources which provide more information about infectious diseases, vaccines, and new research into healing therapies for vaccine related illness and disability. In 2010 NVIC’s Advocacy portal was launched to provide the public with analysis and legislative alerts on vaccine policy and law changes in each state and has since built a nationwide network of educated citizens activists to advocate for informed consent protections in vaccine law and policy.

I'm so happy to have an organization like NVIC to be able to refer patients to. I support their position of educating others and being a vocal advocate for appropriate testing and the ability to choose what is right for the individual. This message is now more important than ever as we have seen a virus create such fear, anxiety, panic, overreaction, and sensationalism by the media.It is now more important than ever for society to become educated about the many issues of mandatory vaccination; the people need to be heard and we need to take back our right of bodily autonomy.

I have been a member of NVIC for 18 years and have appreciated their information and education all along the way. It is such a great resource for people to educate themselves on so many issues, ranging from personal rights to vaccine ingredients. They are not anti-vaccine - just advocates for safe vaccines while also protecting our freedom to choose what pharmaceuticals are injected into our bodies. Thank you NVIC for your tireless, and oftentimes unappreciated, work to do all you do on behalf of all of us.

I reached out to NVIC regarding a disheartening + over-reaching flu vaccine mandate from my place of Federal employment. NVIC California Advocacy Director Terry Roark contacted me herself after researching the issue. She provided me with a directive which will allow me + fellow coworkers the ability to maintain our right to decide what is or isn't injected into our bodies. This gives me a huge sense of relief. It is reassuring to know there are organizations who advocate for the preservation of our rights to make informed choices. And, that organizations like NVIC are filled with passionate individuals like Terry with stealth sleuthing skills + a know-how in obtaining vital information to protect our continued yet wavering rights to informed consent.

Stay Strong + Thanks Again!

You cannot rely on the AMA schooled doctors to provide you with accurate information about vaccines given their interwoven relationship with the pharmaceutical industry and government policy. Keep in mind that in 1994 Congress gave pharmaceutical companies iability immunity if a baby/patient suffered a vaccine injury. A life can be ruined and the government will not provide assistance and the family holds the bag. What a country. That is why NVIC is a must to educate you and your family to avoid injury. I know this first hand. And parents rights to choose for their children are being taken away and vaccines are being mandated. The Bolsheviks have taken control.

So much amazing information provided by this organization. Information that's very hard to find elsewhere due to the stigma around vaccine "questioning". THe NVIC provides well-sourced, reliable science about vaccine safety and efficacy. It's important to understand that all drugs have side effects and I support the right to know / informed consent which is currently not provided to most parents prior to vaccinations. I highly encourage parents to dig deep into the articles and information provided by the NVIC to determine if and when vaccinating their child with the current schedule of 72 shots before age 18 is the best choice for their child's health.

Every time I have contacted the NVIC via phone they have responded within the same day. I needed help because my son joined the Marines and didn't want any vaccines that contained aborted fetal tissue in them. NVIC helped me find the CDC's list of ingredients in vaccines along with the Military's Religious Exemption Form . NVIC even warned me that the military would not honor their own form. They were correct. My son, who was the leader of the 3 squad of his platoon was discharged before he reached week 5 of boot camp for signing the exemption form.

I have been following NVIC's journey since my almost 21 year old daughter was an infant. I was fortunate enough to be alerted about the dangers of vaccines by my mid-wife -- when I began to do my own due diligence I was horrified. Having dealt with autoimmune diseases since my first verifiable "flare" at 17 years old (which was exactly 17 days after at least my 6th tetanus shot) when I woke up nearly blind in both eyes from Iritis, I immediately felt very confident I had inadvertently discovered my answer. To make a long story short, when the ER doctor called in an ophthalmologist at 3 a.m. who immediately instructed us to meet him at the Dean A McGee Eye Institute, we knew it was serious. He said had we waited even hours longer, I definitely would have lost the vision permanently in at least one of my eyes. Anyway, I have been following their journey ever since my accidental discovery and am happy to say my daughter is completely 100% vaccine free and healthy as the proverbial horse. I will continue to follow them as well as believe in their mission statement until the whole world realizes that vaccines are NOT mandatory and they never should be!

I’m very opposed to vaccinations and feel very compelled that they should be fully informed to make their decisions whether or not to receive vaccines. Barbara Loe Fisher has been voicing her concerns and is very devoted to sharing updates. It’s a very personal choice, not government or doctors decisions. Why do they have booster shots??

Please do NOT give to this harmful organization. They are spreading misleading and inaccurate information about vaccines. Due to organizations like this, the resources of our public health departments end up getting depleted fighting outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases and the resources of our school districts are wasted on fighting lawsuits with parents who have been misinformed by this organization. The tragedy of the Covid 19 pandemic will help reinforce the importance of a robust public health system and the need to make health decisions based on scientific evidence.

My wife and I are so happy that we found the NVIC website. NVIC does not promote the use of vaccines and does not advise against the use of vaccines.  Rather, NVIC empowers parents with informed consent so that parents are aware that vaccines have both benefits and risks and can decide what's best for their children. The NVIC co-founder's opening remarks from the Doctors episode about vaccines is truly powerful and eye opening: Watch "Child Vaccinations - The Doctors Debate" on YouTube

I'm a grandmother of three children (my daughter's kids) and my daughter and I are very concerned about vaccines and their adverse effects especially after my two oldest grandkids have been vaccinated and experienced some negative reactions. (although we didn't quite make the connections at the time) But thanks to some books and the NVIC, we are making better choices now. The NVIC was extremely helpful in informing us with everything we need to know. And they sent us some very helpful resources to share with others including a book, pamphlets, and DVD's. Thank you NVIC, we will share all your info to help keep other kids safe and advocate for better laws.

As a volunteer who wants to protect our health freedom, I can honestly say that doing so would not be possible without the help of the NVIC. This organization is made up of women who inspire me every day, and I have come to admire them greatly. Any time I have needed guidance or an answer to a question, they have been there for me without hesitation. These women work tirelessly to help volunteers like myself, as well as anyone looking for answers regarding health laws. The NVIC website is a one stop shop for all things legislative to help people find their local representatives and keep track of current and upcoming bills that could impend on our freedom. The site also includes information that is vital in helping parents make an informed decision regarding vaccination. I am so thankful for this priceless resource and the incredible people that represent the NVIC.

I am concerned with the ingredients in vaccines. Doctors usually give you the package insert AFTER your child has been vaccinated that details the possible side effects. I really appreciate the "Vaccine Ingredient Calculator" on NVIC's website. It helps vaccine consumers become educated BEFORE they go the doctor. Especially with newly censored internet content, NVIC will continually be a mainstay of information for those looking to make informed decisions about vaccines. I read the articles that NVIC publishes about vaccine information. It is important for Americans to have and exercise their right to informed medical decisions. NVIC is working tirelessly to preserve that right. Thank you!

It is an honor to share how NVIC has assisted our family in making informed health care choices. Three of our four children have experienced severe reactions to immunizations, and NVIC has been a beacon of truth and well-researched, practical information. We highly value their practical, clear-minded content and are grateful for their positive perspective on parental rights and informed consent.

Regardless of what a person's political beliefs are, if they live in America they know very well that pharmaceutical companies have released a great deal of most untrustworthy scientific literature about the safety and efficacy of their products. Vaccines are pharmaceutical products (!), yet the trend has been for each of these companies to be regarded by the totality of the general public as “the devil himself” when it comes to pills and to be regarded as angels when it comes to shots. I am a direct relative of a medical doctor who founded what is today one of the largest charities in the world, which has given untold numbers of vaccines around the world in an effort to eradicate infectious diseases. My relative could not have known about the problems with vaccines then, but we don't have that excuse today and that is partly because of the efforts of NVIC. I can tell readers plainly that vaccine manufacturing has *long* been one of the most dishonest industries in human history and that the government agencies promoting the shots in concert with that industry have done more than their share of regularly lying to the public.

The 1979 CBS 60 Minutes segment on the 1976 Swine Flu vaccine disaster was an excellent example of real journalism; I believe the mainstream news did that sort of thing infrequently then and never in more recent years. The industry knew that neurological injuries would result and released the shot anyway. That formula (foreknowledge of neurological damage → callous release of the product) has been repeated so many times in America that we are now reaching the point where the nation can be considered very significantly crippled by that factor alone.

Now here's another picture of honesty (I'm truly not being sarcastic) from the June 1st 1984 issue of the Federal Register, daily journal of the US government, regarding the live oral polio vaccine:

“However, although the continued availability of the vaccine may not be in immediate jeopardy, any possible doubts, whether or not well founded, about the safety of the vaccine cannot be allowed to exist in view of the need to assure that the vaccine will continue to be used to the maximum extent consistent with the nation’s public health objectives.” [1]

None of the people who mistakenly wrote 1-star reviews here can possibly refute the quotation I just used because it is straight out of the mouth of the US government—provably so. For this reason I implore those reviewers to delete their 1-star reviews until such a time as they have done some independent investigation (which necessarily means looking at both sides) rather than just repeating what we all were trained by the mainstream news to believe in.

Here I have only just given a couple of starting points for the reader so that he or she may begin to see the cracks in the edifice of immunology. Why should that be such a great surprise, when the official US health agencies openly refer to *next year*, 2020, as the beginning of the “post-antibiotic era” (their terminology, not mine)? Aside from vaccines, antibiotics *were* the other supposedly-wondrous allopathic intervention of the modern era.

We are living in a time when a few individuals have been using science (i.e. thorough control of what is published in scientific journals) and technology (i.e. the surveillance state) to perfect dictatorship. I'm not referring, primarily, to communist China. I'm referring to America.

Really, NVIC is actually far too moderate for my personal taste. They just promote free access to information about the risks and ostensible-though-not-actual 'benefits' of vaccines and they simply promote medical informed consent (which by definition is actually the freedom to refuse medical interventions for oneself or one's child). To use the words of Joel Wallach, DVM ND of Dead Doctors Don't Lie: “[Allopathic] doctors have legislated themselves into a protected monopoly.” Personally, I'm anti-vaccine. It took me years to get there. At first I made wimpy statements like: “I just want safe vaccines.” But anyone who has been studying this for a while knows as I do that (just as I said before) vaccine manufacturing has been one of the most dishonest industries in human history. That alone is more than enough to make a decision: if the industry is dishonest, then don't buy their products and inject your babies with them. But it seems to me that maybe the world has really needed organizations like NVIC (which appear to be rather moderate) because some people have had a tendency to reject the truth if the truth didn't sound very moderate at first. But that's only a tendency. I trust that people are maturing; they can handle the truth. So my difference with NVIC right now is mainly just a stylistic one. Now NVIC has long tracked the pending legislation in each state and sent out action alerts any time medical freedom (medical informed consent) was under attack. This is a very valuable service, and should be continued for as long as the would-be allopathic dictatorship may be expected to continue its steady march forward in enacting unfavorable state and federal legislation.

Medical kidnapping of children for the purposes of the three most tyrannical 'disciplines' in allopathic 'medicine' (oncology, immunology and psychiatry) has occurred in very large numbers here in America; medical kidnapping of adults has also occurred in large numbers. The problem has been much larger than the topic of vaccines and much larger than the field of medicine itself, but I would have to say that:

(a) I like and generally agree with the speeches I have heard by NVIC Director Barbara Loe Fisher and
(b) I value the informational services provided by NVIC including but not limited to what I described above

For these reasons, I give an overall thumbs up.

Thank you!

I was so grateful to find this wonderful organization, which serves parents into rightfully making an informed decision about the way their children should be treated by medical professionals. I am not against all vaccines but I am against them being given at such an early and short interval while the BBB is still forming and it’s fragile at the most.
I am glad that NVIC and Gina in particular gave me strength to change my Peds office by giving me information about doctors who don’t push on Big Pharma’s and CDC’s vaccine extensive schedules. I wish we could all wake up into a reality which controls healthy lifestyle choices instead of pushing us and our children into traumatic, chronic and lifelong negative consequences.

Dangerous nonprofit that has the sole goal of spreading fear and distrust about safe, life-saving treatments to overly-concerned parents trying to do right by their children. They seem to have an extremely tenuous understanding of basic scientific principles, and they flagrantly ignore overwhelming evidence disagreeing with their presuppositions while blindly accepting any rumor that confirms their hoax. No doubt this organization will directly lead to deaths of innocent children, and I can hardly think of a more detestable goal than that.

The NVIC is one of the oldest and most important organizations working toward educating the public and the medical profession about the truth regarding vaccines and vaccine science. It never ceases to amaze me, as a 25 year full time health professional, how well the pharmaceutical companies and our government have corrupted the public knowledge and access to real science. The NVIC and anyone else who works towards getting the facts out has a very difficult uphill battle. This is a very worthwhile nonprofit and many more should learn the facts and donate to their difficult quest or else so many of our children will be permanently damaged that we may end up with no work force and lose our standing in the world. I have many audio and video recordings on my web site as we all work to get the truth out. Some of the audio recording are from past NVIC conferences. Remember that the only reason we move forward in science is due to those few forward thinking individuals and organizations that have learned that Main Stream Is WRONG. Without such pioneers, we would not have planes, boats, cars, electricity, antibiotics and many other helpful things, unlike the harmful vaccines that are only thought to be something that they are not. Always FULLY investigate a number of true experts on BOTH SIDES of an argument before deciding where you feel the truth is or may be hiding. David Getoff, CCN, CTN, FAAIM

Thank you Dr. David! We appreciate the time it took to share how important it is to have accurate information on diseases and vaccines as one makes health-related decisions.

I am so grateful for NVIC and for speaking to Gina who was able to provide me with lists of doctors who will either delay or not insist upon vaccination for my new grandson. My son, who is now 29, had episodes of prolonged, inconsolable crying after each of his 3 DPT vaccines as an infant. Our pediatrician, at that time, dismissed it as not being significant and said, "Just give him some Tylenol." My son, who was a very healthy and strong infant when born, went on to have a delay in speech and toileting, along with constant crying, irritability and mood swings which have lasted to this day despite no further vaccinations and many holisitic interventions, for which I have had to pay out-of-pocket for as the AMA does not recognize most alternative treatments!

When I had a question on vaccines and the risk, I contacted NVIC and was provided with factual information that allowed me to make an informed decision. My doctor kept pressuring me to get vaccinated despite my health issues and the information provided to me by NVIC made me realize that the risk of vaccine injury far exceeded any potential health benefit. Thank you NVIC for your unbiased and factual information.

I had a question regarding my vaccine rights for my child, and the legal information that my pediatrician had me sign. The NVIC gave me exactly the answer and info that I needed to move forward. They truly care about the well being of our kids, and freely give of themselves to fight for the freedom of vaccine choice.

Thank you for the kind words. We do care and believe that vaccine decisions should be voluntary and recognize that we are all unique individuals and don't all respond the same way to pharmaceutical products - including vaccines. Where there is risk, there must be choice.

What an encouragement to find help online. While this organization did not have the help I needed at their fingertips, they directed me to the people who sent links to help me discern the truth about immunization laws in our state as they pertain to our daughter's private school. Simply doing an internet search is not as helpful as it used to be. But with the help I found from this organization, things came into focus quickly. I had to click back and forth from one link to another, but all of the links were finally easy to find! Thank you!

I want to thank God for this wonderful organization and for its co-founder, Barbara Loe Fisher, whose books on vaccines I read when I was pregnant with my first baby. I, now have 2 very healthy unvaccinated boys and I couldn’t be more grateful for coming across this organization and Ms Barbara’s books!
I will do my best in sharing the information they provide with as many people as possible as my heart breaks with every child injured and abused by the vaccine industry!

I just finished watching Barbara Loe Fisher's Nuremberg to California… Why Informed Consent Matters in the 21st Century video on Dr. Mercola’s website and it affected me incredibly. The historical, philosophical, and sociological backdrop blended with the ethical questions and your personal story was compelling. Thanks to the NVIC for their inspired work on this vital issue.

Speaking out of this topic is incredibly brave. Barbara's delivery and demeanor on the very loaded subject matter is spot on. Thanks to her for her tireless work. I became a mother almost six years ago and the question of vaccination plagued me. I found information through the National Vaccine Info Center that thankfully educated me to wait and research further before having my son vaccinated.

My decision has caused much controversy within my family and has received some harsh scrutiny from our former pediatrician’s office. I now understand first hand how much backbone it takes to speak out on this issue and you are an inspiration to women like myself who only want to protect our children's' health and futures.

Thoughtfully presented information like in this video, provides an opportunity for those that innocently follow the advice of their doctor’s to actually hear another perspective and consider.

In gratitude!
Take the 45 minutes and watch.

My daughter had a reaction to her vaccines at 18 months, became lethargic after adm. of two vaccines, it frightened the heck out of me. I started my quest of learning all that I could about the pros and cons of all vaccines, becoming more informed. I have read tons of books ( read Dr. Sears) and have spent hours and years researching, and feel empowered and now informed to make an educated decision, moving forward in the future if and when I choose to vaccinate my family. I applaud Barbara Lo Fisher and NVIC for all their hard work and dedication. Please support NVIC so that we can keep moving forward helping to allow freedom of choice! You do have a choice, and a voice!

Thanks to the NVIC, I was able to find answers on the Internet after my son's pediatrician described his adverse vaccine reaction as "normal". We were able to save him from further damage and also protect our daughter who was born 4 years later. We started asking for vaccine inserts and we discovered that we could get exemptions from vaccines in our state, even though the teachers and doctors told us we didn't have that option.

NVIC has played a central role in my activism over the past year. The Advocacy Portal informed me of vaccine related legislation in Rhode Island which empowered me to take action. On Saturday, I had a lengthy conversation with my congressman as well as many of his team members and a local reporter. All around me, I am seeing people beginning to wake up and question vaccine safety. This would never have happened without the decades of tireless work on the part of NVIC.
In addition, the NVIC is one of my top resources when directing people toward reliable and up to date vaccine information.

There are so many organizations in this day that you sometimes miss the diamond in the rough! That is what I feel the NVIC is for not only the Chiropractic community but for anyone looking for legit information on vaccines, and the possibilities to help the cause.
I thank all who work diligently to supply us with information that we can help out a campaign with but also help our communities spread the word of truth about vaccines.
I commend you and from the bottom of my heart say thank you!

There are so many causes in the world today. Many of them on face value seem good and worthwhile but you always wonder if the money you contribute it truly going to the cause they claim to represent. That is not a fear of mine with NVIC. This organization is very transparent with their finances and their cause. I have been so impressed with their selfless mission. Their issue is obviously polarizing but i believe it is important for all of humanity to know the facts. If history shows us anything it is that you cannot trust the people that are making billions on the very products they claim we, as a body of people, MUST have. We see these effects with the opioid epidemic facing our nation now. Organizations like NVIC are so important to keep the truth out there.

I am very pleased with this group and encourage others that share the same believe to get involved!

This is a fantastic organization. So often you contact an organization or company with a question and it's like they never get back to you or do halfheartedly. When I've reached out to the NVIC with questions they have taken the inquiry seriously and responded kindly after serious research into finding the answers. No one will debate that this is a topic with lots of emotion on both sides and I they know this and respond with a level of care that is appropriate for such an important, emotional topic. Impressed, truly.

My husband's children both had severe reactions to immunizations and when our daughter was born we knew that we needed to put her on a delayed, slower vaccine schedule then what is recommended. We have been blessed to have a Nurse Practitioner that works with us on our wishes. It is getting time for her to go to school and we needed to have exemption papers ready as she will not be getting all of the vaccines on the schedule. I have used this site for many years to stay informed on all things vaccines. NVIC has a wealth of information and has been a huge part of this journey my family is on. The link under the State of Louisiana for the exemption form did not have the exemption form and I emailed Gail. The response she gave was so amazing. She responded right away looking into the matter and within a few days the link was fixed and I had a copy of the exemption form. I was so taken back by this response because my request could have easily been ignored or forgotten about. This decision that us parents have to make that the rest of society deems as unreasonable and dangerous is no easy feat. The opposition from every side can seem very daunting at times and this experience has been incredibly uplifting and I was given hope today. Thanks Gina, keep up the amazing work!!

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!

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.
