The National Vaccine Information Center
The National Vaccine Information Center is a national, non-profit educational organization founded in 1982. The oldest and largest consumer organization advocating the institution of vaccine safety and informed consent protections in the mass vaccination system, NVIC is responsible for launching the vaccine safety and informed consent movement in America in the early 1980′s.
Their Mission Statement:
The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is dedicated to the prevention of vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and to defending the informed consent ethic. As an independent clearinghouse for information on diseases and vaccines, NVIC does not promote the use of vaccines and does not advise against the use of vaccines. We support the availability of all preventive health care options, including vaccination, and right of consumers to make educated, voluntary health care choices.
NVIC provides assistance to those who have suffered vaccine reactions; promotes research to evaluate vaccine safety and effectiveness, as well as to identify factors which place individuals at high risk for suffering vaccine reactions; and monitors vaccine research, development, regulation, policy-making and legislation. NVIC works to protect the right of citizens to exercise the human right to informed consent to medical interventions which carry a risk of injury or death for themselves or their children, including vaccination.
The Australian Vaccination Network
The Australian Vaccination Network (AVN) was founded in 1994 by a group of parents and health professionals who were concerned about protecting the rights of Australians to make free and informed health choices.
AVN believes that:
Both sides of every health issue should be freely available for anyone who is trying to make a decision. After all, the best health choices will always be informed choices.
Research into the benefits and risks of treatments and medical procedures should always be performed independently of those who hold a vested interest. Drug companies should not be funding safety and effectiveness studies any more than tobacco companies should be funding studies into the sagety of cigarette smoking, though currently, all research into drugs and vaccines is funded, in part or in total by the drug companies who will profit from their use.
All information about health issues and parenting should be presented in a format which makes it understandably to anyone who wishes to access it. Medical jargon has no place when it comes to helping people make the best choices for their families and for themselves. This is why the AVN established its magazine, “Informed Voice” – to give everyone who is searching for information on health and parenting an easily-understood and up-to-date source of esential information.
The AVN is not anti-vaccination, but we are most definitely opposed to any form of compulsion for any medical procedure and we are against the use of coercion, financial penalties, or social stigna against those who have decided not to vaccinate. Health issues must always be a matter of free and informed choice in any nation choosing to call itself a democracy.
Alan Phillips, JD
Attorney and Counselor at Law
Alan Phillips, J.D. of Chapel Hill, NC, is one of the nation’s leading vaccine rights attorneys. He advises individuals, families, attorneys, groups and organizations throughout the U.S. on vaccine exemption and waiver rights; supports legislative initiatives aimed at expanding vaccine freedom of choice; is published internationally on vaccine health and legal matters; and appears regularly at rallies, conferences, and on radio and TV shows discussing vaccine rights issues.
Over the years Alan has helped clients secure vaccine exemptions in a wide variety of settings, including schools and colleges, the military, immigration, healthcare employees, and parents in vaccine custody disputes. Alan’s e-book, The Authoritative Guide to Vaccine Legal Exemptionss, is the only publication that provides authoritative, accurate, in-depth information about how state and federal laws interact with individual circumstances to form the precise boundaries of each person’s legal right to refuse vaccines.
Alan is also the founder of the Pandemic Response Project (PReP), a volunteer organization focused on legislative initiatives to advance rights concerning vaccine choice, with a focus on emergency rights–most states’ laws allow officials to throw vaccine exemptions out the window in a declared emergency, and to quarantine unvaccinated people in government facilities or other locations of the government’s choosing.

Coalition For Informed Choice
Founded in 1994 By Gary Krasner, Coalition For Informed Choice (CFIC) is a free-to-join, non-partisan, statewide (NY only) organization whose members share one baseline conviction: Parents Should Decide Which Vaccines, If Any, Will Be Given To Their Children
Its 5,000 members residing in NYS are mostly parents who include doctors, lawyers, teachers, etc. as well as leaders of autism organizations. Their views comprise a wide spectrum of thought—from those who accept the general efficacy of vaccination, to those who reject it entirely. But all believe that “Informed Consent” implies a right to withhold consent, or else it means nothing.
Gary Krasner is the leading authority on the religious exemption in NYS. For the time being, religious objections are the sole viable means for a parent to refuse vaccinations. The medical waiver in NYS is hard to obtain and maintain, making it unsuitable for most parents.

Gardasil and Unexplained Deaths
Emily Tarsell’s daughter, Chris, died in June of 2008. She has grieved with other families whose daughters were injured or died following Gardasil. Photos of some of these young ladies appear in a slideshow on this website.
As information was exchanged with other parents, it became apparent that there were patterns to these post-injection reactions. She volunteered to work with the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) to support and network with families and to develop a questionnaire to document symptoms and any patterns in the reported events. This site is a wealth of helpful information for those who have questions about Gardasil.
Off the Radar
This site was born out of the frustration of a parent who wished to make an “informed” decision about Gardasil for their daughter, and the difficulty they incurred at not being told the complete story about the vaccine by “The Ministry of Health and medical establishment”. To have a “one stop shop” of information for parents concerning what is being put into their children, whether by vaccine or food, this site endeavours to tell “what they didn’t want you to hear”.
Gardasil Action Group
Gardasil Action Group is a resource for those who believe they may have been impacted by the Gardasil HPV vaccine. This site provides information on Gardasil, its ingredients, links to helpful articles, studies, videos and reports on Gardasil.
Contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org
Truth About Gardasil
Truth About Gardasil was founded by social activists and mothers of children injured by Gardasil. The website provides information and emotional support for victims and their families.
Their mission is to educate the public, politicians and the medical community about the critical need to be completely informed prior to making vaccine choices. First and foremost, they provide a voice for Gardasil victims.

Maintained by Andreas Bachmair
Andreas Bachmair is a homeopathic/naturopathic physician residing in Switzerland. He has maintained a vaccine-critical information site for over ten years. This site contains adverse events experienced after vaccination with almost every vaccine used in Europe, a form for reporting new injuries and helpful information about the vaccines involved. Most of the injuries reported are from Austria, Germany and Switzerland. Due to recently acquired translation abilities, the site is now open to accepting injury reports from nearly any country.
