Diseases & Vaccines


NVIC is dedicated to the prevention of vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and to defending the informed consent ethic. As an independent clearinghouse for information on diseases and vaccines, NVIC does not promote the use of vaccines and does not advise against the use of vaccines. We do not offer medical advice and support the availability of all preventive health care options, including vaccination, and the right of consumers to make educated, voluntary health care choices.

Know the Risks Campaign

Like prescription drugs, vaccines are pharmaceutical products that carry two risks: a risk the product will not work and a risk the product will cause harm. Before you take a risk, find out what it is. Learn more about this important campaign here.

Vaccine Shedding Report

Vaccines may provide temporary immunity but sometimes fail to provide individuals with even short-term protection from infection. Learn about the potential of live virus vaccines to spread illness in this special NVIC report.


Over $3.6 billion has been awarded by the federal government to children and adults injured by vaccines. NVIC encourages consumers to become fully informed about the risks and complications of diseases and vaccines and speak with one or more trusted health care professionals before making a vaccination decision.  Below are links to specific disease and vaccine information. Each topic contains information from peer reviewed science, resources and federal agencies to assist consumers in making an educated vaccination decision.
