Review for Vaccination News A Nonprofit Corporation, Anchorage, AK, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
Great work!

Review for Vaccination News A Nonprofit Corporation, Anchorage, AK, USA

Rating: 5 stars  


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.

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

When I was the publisher of Red Flags Daily, Sandy Gottstein's column appeared regularly on the site. it was a well-read column that provided a deeply informed, broad view of the vaccination issue.

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

Make sure it is well-funded to continue the vital work.
