NVIC Launches Research Fund To Study Health & Vaccination

By Barbara Loe Fisher
Published October 12, 2009 in Science

“Show Us the Science and Give Us the Choice” was the rallying cry of the 700 parents and health care workers who traveled from 44 states and 11 nations to attend the groundbreaking Fourth International Public Conference on Vaccination sponsored by the National Vaccine Information Center Oct. 2-4, 2009. The historic conference featured presentations by more than 40 world experts in the areas of vaccine science, policy, law, and ethics and raised more than $100,000 to launch an international fund raising campaign for scientific research to investigate health differences between vaccinated and unvaccinated children and identify those at risk for suffering vaccine injury.
  Families with healthy children and those with vaccine injured children joined hands with nurses, doctors and allied health care workers in a united call for quality scientific research and the human right to make informed, voluntary vaccination decisions. What we witnessed was a celebration of the human spirit and what we affirmed was dedication to truth in science and the duty to protect the biological integrity of our children.
We are not going to wait any longer for government or industry to answer the big question of whether the nearly 70 doses of 16 vaccines that doctors now give our children between the day of birth and age 18 is contributing to the unexplained chronic disease and disability epidemic that is harming far too many of our children. With 1 child in 6 now learning disabled; 1 in 9 asthmatic; 1 in 100 developing autism; 1 in 450 diabetic and millions more suffering with seizures, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, bi-polar disorder and other chronic illness, the National Vaccine Information Center is assembling a group of independent experts from multiple scientific disciplines to immediately evaluate and act to protect our children’s health.
NVIC’s Children’s Fund for Hope, Health and Healing will raise funds to first create data collection systems and conduct small preliminary studies with a longer term goal of conducting a large 10-year clinical study. The scientific research program will evaluate health outcomes of vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals; identify potential high risk factors for adverse responses to vaccination; and investigate the biological mechanisms for vaccine injury and death.
 Vicky Debold, PhD, RN, who teaches health research methods at George Mason University and has served as NVIC’s Director of Patient Safety for three years, has been appointed Scientific Research Director for NVIC’s Children’s Fund for Hope, Health & Healing. She is assembling a steering committee of health research experts and has pledged “to leave no stone unturned in our efforts to understand why so many healthy infants and children are regressing after vaccination and becoming chronically ill.”
NVIC will also raise funds to strengthen informed consent protections in US vaccine laws and support health care workers seeking to protect their right to make informed, voluntary vaccination decisions. Dawn Richardson, co-founder and president of PROVE, has been appointed as NVIC’s Director of State Advocacy. Mrs. Richardson led a seven-year successful grassroots campaign to obtain conscientious belief exemption to vaccination in Texas in 2003. She said “There is too much abuse of executive power taking place at the state level when it comes to mandatory vaccination.”
If you want to support unbiased, scientific research into the health effects of vaccination and be part of this historic grassroots movement to defend truth in science and the informed consent principle, become a donor supporter of the consumer-led non-profit (501c3) National Vaccine Information Center. The world’s largest and oldest vaccine safety and informed consent organization is funded by donations from individual citizens and foundations, including Dr. Joseph Mercola and the Albert and Claire Dwoskin Family Foundation. NVIC takes no pharmaceutical industry or government funding.
You can direct your tax deductible donation to scientific research or informed consent advocacy – or both. It’s your choice.

  A heartfelt thank you to all the parents, grandparents, nurses, doctors, scientists and health care workers who came and made history with us at the Fourth International Public Conference on Vaccination. You are writing a new chapter in the three decade vaccine safety and informed consent movement.
  Together, we CAN stand up and protect our human right to make informed, voluntary vaccine decisions based on good science. Because the future is ours to change for the better if we have the courage and believe we can do it.

The conference was a complete triumph and will go down in history.”
 “Thank you Barbara Fisher and your entire support team for an
outstanding conference. My husband and I were so impressed with the entire conference.The speakers were great and the attendees were knowledgable and committed.There was not a wasted moment. As Barbara said,it was a "World Class Conference".It is regrettable that the press did not attend.But committed, loving, concerned moms are powerful force as your organization has shown. Getting the truth out is a challenge in a truth challenged world.
This issue is so much a matter of integrity and it is shocking how little of that important quality is available today.”
“Congratulations on an amazing conference. I think it was the most well attended conference I have ever been to! I am so proud of you and the work of the NVIC.”
 “Thank-you so much for the invaluable conference that you put on this past weekend.  The speakers you brought together from around the world were amazing. We are fortunate that we were able to attend.  There is comfort in knowing that individuals with the utmost integrity and strength have dedicated everything they have in them to magnify the fact that valid science has never been done on the risks and benefits of mass vaccination.  I applaud you and others for holding your head's high for nearly 30 years despite the ridicule and opposition you have faced….  My husband, myself, and my family want to be a part of this. Change needs to take place as fast as possible.” 
 “All I can say is AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING. The conference was phenomenal. I can't wait to see everything that comes out of this now… 
Thanks again for pulling together such an amazing array of experts and people It was truly a wonderful weekend.”  
“I am a long time supporter of NVIC, since Chiropractic College. I was at the conference this past weekend and found it just so Incredible on so many levels. The speakers were invaluable, the presentations, the quality of people attending and the contacts that I made were amazing! I write to you today to let you know that I will be a huge supporter of this new study that you are embarking on, good for you!! It's about time I say…. I applaud you for your bravery and unending dedication for truth and the pursuit of freedom of choice. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. God bless you.”
”Congratulations on pulling off a WONDERFUL conference. I worked a lot of conferences in the past as a webcaster and none even touched the excitement and passion that all those who attended had. It was truly an amazing experience to be a part of. I am so excited for NVIC.  It's truly an honor to be a part of such a wonderful thing!!”
“I just wanted to say THANK YOU again for all your hard work in making the conference happen this year. I was thrilled to be part of this event. 
Thank you for all the work the NVIC does to educate and empower us to make informed choices.  My mission now is to start working with my state legislators to move the philosophical exemption bill forward!! 

Thanks again -  I'm telling everyone I can about the study that NVIC is now raising money for as well!”
“What a great gathering of fantastic speakers on this topic!! I purchased the recordings already . Just wanted to thank and commend you for all of your hard work!! Keep fighting...people are listening!!

Thanks so much for all of your dedication in our search to prove the link between vaccines and childhood neurological diseases! God WILL expose those lies we've been told about the safety of vaccines.

Barbara, I attended this conference last weekend as a concerned parent of a uninjured non vaccinated child. I have so many friends who just don't "get it". I am so blessed to have a father that brought this subject to my attention when I was 6 mo pregnant and so blessed to have been lead to make the choice to not vaccinate my daughter. She is 4, vibrant and amazing... and I am positive that she is unbelievably healthy due to the fact that she is not vaccinated and receives very regular chiropractic care. I want to thank you for your dedication and let you know that my family prays for your strength and the strength of all the key players in the NVIC daily and want you to know that you are one of my hero's! Thank you for what you are doing, have done and will continue to do in the name of informed consent so that my daughter will continue to have her right to be healthy! I will continue to support the NVIC and hope that many others will too! Thank you again for your work and your influence to others throughout the world!!!

I sure would love for my unvaccinated children to become part of the studies to come. I know how healthy they are and I would love to see them compared to vaccinated children!

I work at a childrens hospital in the NICU. We give the 2 months shots, 2 months after the baby is born, not 2 months from the due date, sometimes these infants are only 4 pounds. Do you have any info on giving shots to premature infants?

This is wonderful news! I think it would be EXCEPTIONAL if we can get additional data such as were the kids exclusively breastfed and for how long or formula fed or if it was a combination, when did they start solids, what family history is there of allergies etc... I think this would also help show a trend as well, because I suspect that even kids who are extended breastfed but fully vaxed end up having just as many issues as if never being bf'd. Let's go all out on this one and expose the truth once and for all!!! I'd love to participate if it were possible!

Have flyers or bumpers stickers been created advertising NVIC's Children's fund for Hope, Health and Healing? How can we help get the word out?

I used to be pro vaccination but I must say when my children received their vaccinations at around eight months old (they are six years apart) they both wound up hospitalized with fevers of 104 that would not come down until they administered a sizable amount of antibiotics by injection and IV fluids and antibiotics for 24 hours. I have become leary. All the information you give is amazing. Right now my son has the H1N1 virus due to a flu vaccination. Last year he received the flu vaccine and also had the flu two weeks later. Thank Goodness I document everything. No more flu vaccines for my children. Please keep the information coming.

Thank you for all that you do. My 3 children, now 4 months, 2 and 4 years old, have never been vaccinated. I also would LOVE to participate in your research...and help perpetuate the discussion in an effort to help other families out there on the fence. And even further, help families that are “pro-vaccine” simply due to ‘compliance’ learn that vaccination is a very risky medical procedure.

Dear Barbara, There are no amount of thanks for all of your, as well as everyone connected with NVIC, hard work and dedication. You all save lives. I think one of the very important messages that can be presented is REPORT, REPORT, REPORT all reactions after a vaccine. Don't let the doctors get away with not reporting incidences. If anyone get a vaccine followed my any reaction, it should be reported. That is the only way of having any chance to get close to how many people can be effected. I think people should ask to have a blood test and have titers done to find out if they need a vaccine, or if they are already immune. Again, thank you and God Bless you and your team. Paula

My two children aged almost 18 and 11 have not been vaccinated and have great natural immunity. My daughter has never had an antibiotic and my son has had them only once (it was mandatory as he was having a repair to correct a congenital heart defect). I am sure they would be happy to take part in your research. Thanks so much Barbara to you, and all who work with you, for your courage and perseverance in providing the basis for a truly informed choice.

To all of you here. Keep doing what you are doing. I am a victim of Hep B vaccination which has ruined my life. I was in my 20's in 1998 when I had an adverse reaction leading to a life devestating auto immune disease. After 12 looooong years I have won my case with the Federal Vaccination Compensation Act. I am so enraged that I think I will contact Larry King to expose all guilty parties. p.s. Every "stupid" dr. I have "EVER" seen say vaccinations "ARE SAFE".....Goes to show what they know. "I AM PROOF THAT THEY ARE WRONG". I have concluded: The government & the drug co's that support them are corrupt. Don't be fooled, "It's all about the money". Please keep fighting for me & all the others. Let the immune system do what it is naturally meant to do w/o nasty, questionable, unanswered intervention. "NEVER" doubt your current beliefs/doubts. I AM PROOF THAT YOU ARE RIGHT". THANK YOU!

Yes! It's about time, and long over-due. We will not wait for the government or the industries. We want answers NOW! Thank you Barbara Loe Fisher and associates for your perseverance in the issue of vaccine safety.

Thank you for all of this research and organization! I am not vaccinated and I did not vaccinate my baby. Compared with all my friends' vaccinated babies, mine is a super star - superior health. Keep up the good work. We need to end this nonsense.
