Today, the most common argument used to justify “no exceptions” mandatory vaccination laws is that unvaccinated people pose a serious health threat to others who “cannot be vaccinated,” such as the immunocompromised. Some parents of unvaccinated children are asking the opposite question: Could my unvaccinated or immune compromised child get sick from coming in contact with a recently vaccinated person? The short answer is: Yes.
NVIC’s special report “The Emerging Risks of Live Virus and Virus Vectored Vaccines” authored by Barbara Loe Fisher and anchored with more than 275 references reviews the history of live virus vaccine infection, shedding and transmission and the potential risks of new virus vectored vaccines.

At the center of this conversation is vaccination, which includes the inalienable right to self-determination and protection of bodily integrity, which has been globally acknowledged as a human right.
