National Vaccine Information Center

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is a non-profit charity founded in 1982 and dedicated to preventing vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and defending the informed consent ethic.

NVIC encourages everyone to empower themselves with information and make informed vaccine decisions for themselves and their children. NVIC works to protect the freedom for citizens to exercise the human right to voluntary, informed consent to any medical intervention or use of pharmaceutical product, such as a vaccine, which carries a risk of injury or death.

They publish a free newsletter via email and have a free online NVIC Advocacy Portal that tracks legislation in each state that will restrict or expand vaccine exemptions. People can directly contact their own state elected representatives on via smartphone or tablet.
