vaccine education message sponsored by NVIC will be shown during the New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square on the 5,000 square-foot TSQ Digital screen at 47th St. and 7th Ave. in New York City. The 15-second ad, which encourages informed decision-making, has been shown on the megatron twice an hour for 21 hours a day since Dec. 16, 2011.

The full-color LED screen on which NVIC’s ad is appearing is located near the Times Square Information Center in the heart of the Broadway district and is one of the largest digital display screens in the Times Square area. An estimated one million people pack the Times Square area during New Year’s Eve and the celebration is viewed on television by billions of people around the world.

NVIC co-sponsored a similar vaccine education message with Mercola.com last spring on another display in Times Square. During November, NVIC sponsored a flu prevention video on Delta Air Line’s in-flight programming that encouraged consumers to become informed about how to stay well during the flu season and all year-around.

“Knowledge is the key to informed consumer decision-making,” said Fisher. “Everyone has the right to know about the benefits and risks of products and choose the kind of preventive health care they want for themselves and their children.”

About NVIC: The National Vaccine Information Center was founded in 1982 and is dedicated to preventing vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and defending the ethical principle of informed consent to medical risk-taking. NVIC founders worked with Congress to insert vaccine safety provisions in theNational Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. A 501C3 charity, NVIC is the largest consumer-led organization advocating for the institution of vaccine safety andinformed consent protections in U.S. public health policies and does not offer advice about whether individuals should or should not get vaccinated.

NVIC.org is one of the oldest health information websites on the internet and had nearly one million page views last year. More than 30,000 fans follow NVIC onFacebook and Twitter

You can't read 'your choice'! Who paid for this ad, Autism Speaks?? It's as though they don't want people to see 'our choice' but only 'vaccination, your health, your family'. People are going to see this and think that vaccinations are GOOD things! It will encourage more people to vaccinate, sheesh. NVIC Editors note: Robin, please press the arrow to run the 15 second Ad. All of the words are bolded and bright. What you see on the page is not what you will see on the screen. Thanks for your input and support. ~ PFA

Great job! I hit play and was impressed! This is groundbreaking...the idea that vaccines have risk...know the risks. The mere idea that YOU HAVE A CHOICE!!!! Most people have no idea. Great job, NVIC. Thank you so much for all the hard work and perseverance over the years. I read books by Ida Honorof in 1984-5 and knew at 13 that I would never vaccinate my children. I read DPT: A Shot in the Dark after our first daughter was born...I bawled and bawled, was thankful I had not harmed our daughter and was able to stand up to the pressure of the hospital staff and the Pediatrician, whom I fired. Now, I am mad at Big Pharma and motivated to spread the word!!!! We have nine never vaxed beautifully healthy children. You have made an impact, directly, in my life and I thank you for it.

Mad at pHarma, what about the families who have one or two vaccine damaged children? Are they just collateral damage or can we get them back. Organic sulfur twice a day has brought 13 back, and that is just the kids, Alzheimer's is the same heavy metal damage which can be from a needle or the air. 49 of them are back, two have left the home, alive. Stephanie Seneff from MIT asked this question "Could sulfur deficiency be a contributing factor in . . . " Basically all of our modern disease especially those made by man. The Cellular Matrix Study called and said: "Yes!" Now lets speak for Mom. Damned if you did, is great for guilt but we have humans in need. They need not suffer for past actions, its not their fault but it is the fault of the greed of medicine of which Dr. Rush warned when he signed the Constitution. If you have a vaccine damaged child or senior, add a teaspoon of sulfur to the diet twice a day and watch their eyes. No miracle only biology, sulfur combining and chelating the heavy metals of profit from the bodies of those we love. Do this simple thing and within the coming year I believe we will hear of remarkable return of neurological stuff, beginning with an almost hungry eye contact. Tiny Tim said God bless everyone, that means everyone. Making this a Happy New Year also means for everyone, even those vaccine damaged. The guilt of a Mom is addressed by taking the sulfur with your kid or parent, guilt is a depression thing and depression is a lack sulfur. Happy New Year, Tal Ben-Shahar and everyone.

Since "vaccinations" do not vaccinate, and the foreign animal tissue, chemicals and bacteria that are injected with alleged "vaccinations" only create havoc within the immune system, side reactions and spread diseases induced by the injections, that they pose a "risk," puts it too mildly. Rather than pose a "risk," they are a "sure thing" when side reactions that cause everything from Autism to stroke to death are seriously considered. One tends to conclude that WWII NAZI Dr. Josef Mengele-types have overtaken medicine in the U.S.A., the pharma industry, the Food and Drug Administration and Monsanto.

My fear is that this message will only reach the already savvy. The ridicule and attacks that we suffer from the ignorant, the outrage and the finger-pointing, and the massive political machine behind ma$$ vaccination$ is daunting. But, we cant give up. Kudos to you and your groups' efforts!

I am very happy to know that this message will be seen by a large number of people--as something needs to be done to counteract all the propaganda out there, promoting vaccines--that they are safe and effective, that studies show no relationship between vaccines and autism, etc. Even my children (who are adults) have blind faith in doctors and believe whatever the doctors say. I never taught them to put their trust in doctors--but everyone in their generation (born in '69 to '74) seems to have been conditioned, or indoctrinated, to believe whatever any authority figure or the mainstream media says. I have prayed that the truth about the risks of vaccines will become known and recognized by the general public--and God seems to be answering my prayers.

Thank-you, once again, BLF and NVIC! Far too many people simply don't question or do their own research about vaccines. Thank-you for all you do to help plant seeds and educate parents. Your work has been invaluable to me and to so many of us who share this mission. You are the standard to which the rest of us aspire.

I see this ad condoning VACCINATIONS. That it represents HEALTH and FAMILY and not the lack there of, if in fact VACCINATIONS are administered. Im sure the only way for them to post anything in the CHOICE manner was to have this message presented in this misconceived way. I still see PRO- Vaccinations and little PRO-CHOICE. Can someone change this??
