No Forced Vaccination. Not in America.

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is “America's Vaccine Safety Watchdog.” Founded in 1982, NVIC is the oldest and largest consumer organization advocating the institution of vaccine safety and informed consent protections in the mass vaccination system.

We help families make informed decisions about vaccination to help prevent serious vaccine reactions.

We also support informed consent to vaccination in America.

It’s your family. Your health.
Your choice.

Vaccination should be a choice, not a requirement.

But today, you may not have that choice. Why? Because vaccines are big business in America. The market for pediatric vaccines is predicted to quadruple by the year 2016 to more than $16 billion.

For the past 25 years, every vaccine created by the pharmaceutical industry for children has been recommended by the Federal Government for use by all American children. Americans buy and are required to use more vaccines than citizens in any other nation in the world.

In 1982, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommended 23 doses of 7 vaccines for children up to age six. Today, the CDC recommends that children take 48 doses of 14 vaccines by age six.

  • But do more vaccines mean healthier children?
  • In 1983, one in 10,000 children were diagnosed with autism. Today, 1 child in 150 develops autism.
  • One out of 6 American children is learning disabled.
  • One in 9 has asthma and one in 450 is diabetic

Serious vaccine reactions include brain damage and even death. Sometimes, vaccine reactions can be serious and life-threatening. Learn how you can reduce the risk of a serious vaccine reaction.

The worst is yet to come. With the recent addition of annual flu shots for all infants and children, the CDC now recommends that children get 69 doses of 16 vaccines by age 18.

It's about informed consent. A right we should all have.

We believe Americans should have the opportunity to make smart decisions about using vaccines and other pharmaceutical products.

But in some states, you can be threatened with fines and imprisonment if you do not give your children vaccines. Yes, Americans can be arrested for not vaccinating their children! That's wrong.

In November 2007, government officials in Maryland threatened several thousand parents with jail time and stiff fines if they do not have their children vaccinated for chickenpox and hepatitis B.

US soldiers face the court martial and prison if they do not take experimental vaccines.

Our service men and women deserve the basic human right of informed consent to using pharmaceutical products or undergoing any medical procedure that carries a risk of harm. Learn more
