During the Seventh Annual Vaccine Awareness Week Nov. 13-20, 2016 co-sponsored by the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) and Mercola.com, NVIC is adding a new video vaccine reaction reporting feature to the online International Memorial for Vaccine Victims called Protect Life: Witness a vaccine reaction on NVIC.org.
“I encourage everyone who has had an experience with a vaccine reaction to share it with others by posting a video on NVIC’s Memorial for Vaccine Victims,” said Dr. Joseph Mercola, a family practice physician and founder of the largest natural health information website. “Making people aware that serious vaccine reactions are real and must be prevented can save lives.”
During Vaccine Awareness Week 2016, NVIC.org is also renewing its call for removal of the 30-year old product liability shield Congress gave vaccine manufacturers and doctors in the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. NVIC co-founder and vice president Kathi Williams said:
Thirty years ago Congress promised parents that vaccine injured children would be compensated fairly and generously. Not only has that promise been broken, there is an attack on vaccine freedom of choice because nobody is legally accountable for the safety of vaccines.
Throughout the week, NVIC.org and Mercola.com will publish articles, commentaries and videos on vaccine topics, and Mercola.com will offer a free viewing of The Greater Good documentary from Nov. 19-25. At NVIC.org, visitors can read or download a new 90-page state legislative policy analysis and new Spanish translations of NVIC’s most popular brochures.
NVIC and Mercola.com have been working together since 2008 to educate the public about vaccination and health. NVIC is a founding member of the non-profit Health Liberty Coalition, which was launched in 2011 by Mercola.com to advocate for the public’s right to know and freedom to make voluntary decisions about vaccination, non-GMO food, mercury-free amalgams and fluoride-free water.
The National Vaccine Information Center was founded in 1982 to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and advocates for inclusion of informed consent protections in US vaccine policies and laws, including flexible medical, religious and conscientious belief exemptions. NVIC operates three vaccine information and advocacy websites: NVIC.org, NVICAdvocacy.org, TheVaccineReaction.org and has a more than 185,000 followers on Facebook.
