How Does NVIC Inform the Public About Vaccination Issues?
NVIC Colorado State Advocacy Director Cindy Loveland stands in front of one of the buses in the Denver historic district featuring an NVIC ad educating city residents and visitors about the need to make informed vaccine decisions. The ads ran from February to mid-May 2014.
Since 1982, NVIC has been the leading consumer voice in the vaccine safety and informed consent debate, providing clear, consistent and responsible framing of the most critical issues involved in the science, policy, law and ethics of mass vaccination.
NVIC monitors vaccine research, development, regulation, policymaking, and legislation from its Washington, D.C. area headquarters while working to make vaccine safety and protection of the human right to informed consent to vaccination a national health policy priority in America. We maintain the oldest and most influential consumer operated vaccine information website.
NVIC also conducts original research and analysis and publishes insightful, referenced commentaries for the public on breaking news about infectious diseases and vaccine development, regulation, policymaking, law, and legislation through the weekly NVIC Vaccine E-Newsletter and NVIC president, Barbara Loe Fisher’s blog - Vaccine Awakening.

NVIC maintains a Vaccine Reaction Registry and provides counseling to parents who report vaccine reactions, injuries and deaths and want more information about how to prevent vaccine reactions. NVIC also operates a searchable Memorial for Vaccine Victims for those who have been affected by a vaccine injury or death to post a public report with a photo and description of what happened. NVIC’s Cry for Vaccine Freedom Wall provides a forum for the public to post descriptions of harassment and punishment when attempting to make informed, voluntary vaccination choices.
NVIC recently launched new online forums to give the public more access to vaccine information and make it easier to share personal vaccine experiences with others. Learn more about vaccine failure and how to post to our Vaccine Failure Wall. You can also learn about other vaccine reporting options offered on NVIC.org such as reporting vaccine reactions or cases of vaccine choice harassment.
In 2008, NVIC launched a national Stand Up! Be Counted campaign to end forced vaccination in America. In 2010 NVIC also launched www.NVICAdovacy.org to assist consumers in protecting and expanding state vaccination exemption laws.
In 2015, the National Vaccine Information Center continued our Know the Risks national vaccine education billboard and ad campaign launched in 2013 to advocate for vaccine risk awareness and the right to exercise voluntary, informed consent to vaccination. NVIC billboards have appeared in Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Illinois, Texas, Georgia, New Jersey, New York and on Denver's airport and historic district buses. NVIC’s pro-education, pro-vaccine choice message began running on the Times Square CBS Jumbotron in New York City in 2015.
