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.
VaccinationNews is one of my favorite sites. The information is always up to date and reliable. I am so grateful to Sandy Gottstein and all the hard work that she does to keep people informed on this very important issue.
I want to stress how important I feel Vaccination News is to those of us who seek reliable, up to date and well-researched information about the troubling world of vaccines.
Editor Sandy Gottstein, and other writers like Dr. Edward Yasbak bring great knowledge and insight into an area that is often rife with rumor and gross misinformation.
Thank you to all of you.

IN SUPPORT OF VACCINATIONS NEWS!
I met Sandy Gottstein (aka Mintz) through my late husband, Nicholas Regush. At the time, Nick had just begun publishing Red Flags Daily, a website devoted to probing health and medical scientific issues in a manner that one rarely encounters in mainstream news reports.
Nicholas was an internationally renowned journalist, famous for his penetrating writing about many issues in the field of health and science. He was very careful with his time. So when I heard him spending hours on the phone with this mysterious woman from Alaska, Sandy Gottstein, I knew it must be about important business.
And so it was.
Like Nicholas, Sandy was a tireless worker in her own field of expertise, vaccines and vaccine policy. She and Nicholas had “met” (in cyberspace) while he was still a producer at ABC TV in New York. He was also writing a column for ABC's Web site called, “Second Opinion.” When Sandy sent him an e-mail about one of his columns, she discovered that he had been checking the news on her website almost daily.
Nick believed in Sandy's mission to provide all sides of the vaccination controversy; that it was imperative that people should have a broader understanding of what was being published about vaccines so that they might grasp the complexity of the issue.
I am not the fiery wordsmith that my husband was. (He died in late 2004.) But I can say with strong conviction that Vaccination News remains a vital resource that is desperately needed in these times when it is often near impossible to find reliable and honest information.
Former CEO/Publisher, Red Flags Daily
It must be nearly ten years since I came across Sandy Gottstein and Vaccination News.
My son was injured by vaccines and his life destroyed. He was 15 when they gave him MMR, polio and diphtheria / tetanus. One month ealrier his head teacher told me he was university 'material' and could look forward to an interesting future. That was 19 years ago. Once I discovered that vaccines were involved in his catastrophic transformation, I made up my mind to do everything I could to warn other parents of vaccine dangers. It would lend some purpose to my son's experience.
I joined forums and chat groups galore, and enthusiastically shared relevant news from Sandy's site! More than once I was asked where I found all my links - and happily told them.
Vaccination News has proved to be invaluable in my mission and long may it continue. If I have succeeded in saving anyone from the fate suffered by my son, it has to be thanks to Sandy.
God bless you Sandy for the hard work and time you must spend keeping the site up-to-date with information not found elsewhere.
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
This organization has been tirelessly providing accurate information about vaccination for many years. This organization meets the needs of parents who do not receive unbiased information from their mainstream practitioner. Vaccination News offers high quality, well written articles to its readers.
Vaccination News is intended to disseminate accurate information to the public about vaccine safety issues, and to offset the imbalance so prevalent in our federal health agencies such as the CDC, NIP, IOM and NIH, wherein the benefits of vaccination are universally heralded, but the risks and adverse reactions, as well as long-term chronic health conditions caused by the ever-expanding routine vaccine schedule, are summarily dismissed.
The information provided on this site has proved to be invaluable to me personally as a parent. I also reference this site often when communicating with other interested parents as well as health professionals.
I love this site and access it regularly. It takes alot of the work out of scouring the internet about news items that relate to vaccine research. Parents need to do their due diligence and research this topic and this site makes it far easier to do just that.
Vaccination news is an invaluable resource for those interested in educating themselves on both sides of the vaccine controversy. It is difficult as parents to wade through all of the propaganda and get relevant, up to the minute news about this important topic. It takes the hard work out of searching numerous places for information and puts it in 1 place at your fingertips. I hope this website sticks around. I don't know how I would get my information without it!
Vaccination New gives both sides of the vaccination debate. It is a great reference for anyone trying to understand the pros and cons of vaccination.
Sandy writes with vigilance in a world that's in desperate need of it. Thank you for keeping us informed, the best weapon we have to protect our children.
Anyone wanting a dated "compendium" of vaccine information can't go past this website, which gives a year by year snapshot analysis of the medical information pertaining to vaccination.
There is no better collection.
Vaccination news is THE one-stop shop for all vaccination information both pro and anti, and is the easiest way to find information rather than trying to find individual needles in all the haystacks. You can equally quickly find provaccine, or people questioning vaccines, and it enables a parent to make a much better balance decision than just going to any of the dedicated PRO-VACCINE sites.
I've watched Sandy Gottstein increase the visibility and good work of Vaccination News, a nonprofit corporation, for many years. She's a gifted and creative funder of many worthwhile anti vaccination projects and activities. I wholeheartedly support her work and her courageous approach to this important issue.
This organization provides a comprehensive, non-biased list of everything related to vaccination, in other words this place has what you need on their site, the fastest and yet most efficient way possible. Their services a crucial when compiling a list for important studies and reviews, I give vaccination news 5 stars!
Vaccination News is a vital source of current and archived information--news and special reports--about vaccination for professionals and lay people. This is especially important because the mainstream media continues to be one-sided and unreliable in its reporting. In the words of the late Bernadine Healy, MD, "There are unanswered questions about vaccine safety... There are no sides--only people concerned for the well-being of our children." We can count on Vaccination News to post comprehensive information on vaccination for all of us who are concerned about vaccine safety.
For over a decade, Vaccination News has provided a critically important resource to many communities, that care about health and wellness, truth in science, holistic living, industry corruption, and our fundamental rights (parental, human, personal, religious, constitutional). Questions, concerns, and controversies about vaccination abound. People need a dedicated, reliable clearinghouse focused solely on this topic.
Vaccination News is, simply put, the very best site for anyone who is looking to sort through the propaganda and hysteria too often found on other sites, including those of vaccination promoters such as the CDC.
I have depended on Vaccination News for years to help me recognize the unanswered questions regarding vaccine safety and informed consent. I know of no other as reliable and comprehensive.
This site is wonderful and consolidates a lot of information on a very important topic that is often overlooked.
As a researcher in the area of vaccine safety and effectiveness as well as vaccination program effectiveness and cost effecftiveness, I have found Vaccination News to be a good ite to keep up with relevant news items from around the world.
These reports and articles have, at times, helped guide the focus of my studies as well as provided valuble insights into the views of others around the globe.
Since measles is one of the areas that piques my interest, Vaccination News' coverage of the current situation in the UK (especially Wales) has been helpful in confirming that the public articles are being less than forthcoming about the reality that, because the MMR vaccine is a live-viruses vaccine, it actually infects each child inoculated with the vaccine in an abnormal manner that spreads the risk of measles through shedding as well as, at a steady rate causes clinical measles cases in a few of those inoculated with them.
Also, Vaccination News provides a valuable platform where the parents of those adversely affected can share their stories and inform others of interventions that have helped their affected children to recover.
Sometime these stories have provided valuable insights and tools that seem to aid in the recovery of vaccination-damaged children.
Hopefully, this valuble Internet web-site resource will be available for the foreseeable future.
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!
The news which is posted daily on Vaccination News keeps you up to date on all the breaking news on the subject.
Vaccination News helps countless numbers of people from around the world understand this issue. It has helped parents, journalists and medical professionals find the information they need to help their children, write books and journal articles.
The archives are extensive and include articles that can no longer be found elsewhere.
Thanks to Sandy Gottstein for all the work she has put into this site for many years!
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.
Vaccination News has detailed information and expert opinions about vaccination pros and cons. It gives questioning people information that is difficult to find in other places.
