NVIC's Mission, Work and Vision for the Future
The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is dedicated to preventing vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and advocating for informed consent protections in medical policies and public health laws. NVIC defends the human right to freedom of thought and conscience and supports the inclusion of flexible medical, religious and conscientious belief exemptions in vaccine policies and laws.
NVIC's Work and Vision
NVIC provides counseling and information assistance to those who have suffered vaccine reactions; promotes independent, methodologically sound scientific research to evaluate vaccine safety and effectiveness, as well as to identify factors which place some individuals at higher risk for suffering vaccine reactions; and monitors vaccine research, development, regulation, policy-making and legislation. Visit our programs web page to learn more about NVIC's work.
Since 1982, NVIC has advocated that well-designed, independent, on-going scientific studies must be conducted to: (1) define the various biological mechanisms involved in vaccine injury and death: (2) identify genetic and other biological high risk factors for suffering chronic brain and immune system dysfunction after vaccination; and (3) evaluate short and long-term health outcomes of individuals, who use many vaccines, and those, who use fewer or no vaccines, to determine the health effects of vaccination on individuals and the public health.
- an independent agency in the federal government to monitor vaccine safety and oversee vaccine safety research;
- a large, prospective study to compare the long term health outcomes of highly vaccinated children and unvaccinated children;
NVIC works to protect the freedom for citizens to exercise the human right to voluntary, informed consent to any medical intervention or use of pharmaceutical product, such as a vaccine, which carries a risk of injury or death. NVIC is a member of the GuideStar’s Exchange Program, which requires that our organization meet certain transparency requirements.
