Vaccines are pharmaceutical products. Like all pharmaceutical products, vaccines carry with them risks that can be greater for some than others. Vaccines can cause a reaction that resolves without injury or the reaction can lead to permanent disability or even death. Also, sometimes vaccines fail to protect or only protect against an infectious disease for a short period of time.
As more vaccines have been recommended and mandated by government health officials, NVIC is receiving more reports from Americans describing how they are being harassed for trying to make informed vaccine choices for themselves and their children:
- Children are being denied a public education if their parents do not show state officials proof they have received all state mandated vaccines or have obtained a signature from a medical worker when they file a religious of personal belief exemption to vaccination;
- Doctors are refusing to provide medical care to children and adults who do not agree to get every government recommended vaccine;
- Health care workers are being fired if they do not get an annual flu shot.
