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 do not offer medical advice and support the availability of all preventive health care options, including vaccination, and the right of consumers to make educated, voluntary health care choices.
Over $2 billion has been awarded by the federal government to children and adults injured by vaccines. NVIC encourages consumers to become fully informed about the risks and complications of diseases and vaccines and speak with one or more trusted health care professionals before making a vaccination decision.
Below are links to specific disease and vaccine information on the National Vaccine Information Center web site. Each topic contains information from peer reviewed science, resources and federal agencies to assist consumers in making an educated vaccination decision.
