NVIC's Work and Vision for the Future
Return to Table of Contents
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.
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.
