Every year people around Europe gather to honor and pay tribute to vaccine victims around the world. Although, people suffering injuries from vaccines are purported to be a “small percentage” of those actually vaccinated, many groups around the world want people to understand that those who are injured, or die after vaccination cannot simply be written off as collateral damage. Those whose lifes are permanently and negatively impacted by adverse reactions from vaccines deserve recognition, treatment and suppport. International Vaccine Victims Week is designed to make people aware of the fact that vaccine injuries do occur and exactly how devestating the consequences of vaccine injury can be.
This year’s event will be held in Girona, Spain from October 4th through October 9th. Activities are designed to promote awareness of vaccine-related injuries and death, promote informed consent, and raise awareness of the potential side effects associated with vaccine administration.
During the week there will be a travelling exhibition honoring the vaccine-injured, lectures, discussions, and family-oriented activities, including concerts and theater presentations. Anyone interested in attending can view the complete details of scheduled events via the link in the first paragraph.
