Conferences & Workshops
In 1989, NVIC held an International Scientific Workshop attended by pediatric neurologists, epidemiologists, neuroimmunologists, molecular biologists, bacteriologists and neuropathologists to evaluate the neurological complications of pertussis and the whole cell pertussis vaccine. In 1997, NVIC held the First International Public Conference on Vaccination, which brought together doctors, scientists, health officials, lawyers, ethicists, journalists and parents from 34 states and five countries to the U.S. Capitol to present new scientific data about vaccines and diseases and discuss the biological mechanism of vaccine-induced injury, death and chronic illness. NVIC also sponsored international public conferences on vaccination in 2000, 2002 and 2009 in the Washington, D.C. area.
2020 Fifth International Public Conference on Vaccination. In October 2020, NVIC sponsored the Fifth International Public Conference on Vaccination: Protecting Health and Autonomy in the 21st Century and marked its 38th year of public service. Like NVIC’s previous conferences on vaccination, the 2020 conference provides information and perspective on long-standing and emerging scientific, medical policy, legal and ethical issues related to health and vaccination that empowers individuals to make well-informed decisions for themselves and their children. The conference features video presentations by 51 speakers, including scientists, physicians, holistic health professionals, authors, attorneys, and civil and human rights activists, who openly explore controversial issues about vaccination and health.
Conference presentations are now publicly available free of charge and continue to provide the public with a variety of information, including vaccine ingredients, monitoring vaccine side effects, epidemiology of SARS-Cov-2, development of COVID-9 vaccines, flaws in clinical trial designs, use of human fetal cell lines in vaccine development, research into the reported association between inflammation and epigenetics and how human health is affected by the microbiome and much more.
Below are links to information and presentations previous conferences and workshops sponsored by NVIC.
Professionally produced, the conference included formal presentations and panel discussions featuring 51 distinguished speakers from the U.S. and other countries that offered their knowledge and personal experiences to empower and inspire you to make well informed decisions about health for yourselves and your children. The goal of NVIC’s 2020 conference was to provide high quality information and perspective about vaccine science, policy and law within the context of emerging medical research and the challenges posed by suppression of scientific inquiry and rational criticism of public health policies and laws, which affects the right to exercise freedom of thought and speech and other civil liberties. All conference presentations and videos are currently available for public viewing free of charge and continue to provide the public with timeless information on vaccination.
