"You have a situation in America where you've got forced vaccination; you've got no, almost no medical exemptions; a threat to the other exemptions -- religious and conscience -- that we've been holding the line on so far; and you've got no liability on the part of anybody involved in the vaccination process. So when somebody gets hurt, they're on their own because two out of three people are turned away from the federal vaccine injury compensation program, why...because the DHHS and justice do not want to admit how many people are being harmed by vaccines. They consider every award in that compensation program to be an admission that vaccines can do that...We're nearing four billion dollars of compensation, but that's only a tip of the iceberg because they turn most people away...They turn two thirds away...and almost no child is being compensated. They're compensating adults who are injured by the flu vaccine but they don't want to admit that children are being hurt."

This week from November 5-11, 2017 Mercola.com and the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) are co-sponsoring the Eighth Annual Vaccine Awareness Week (VAW), a week dedicated to raising awareness about vaccines and informed consent rights. With all the uncertainty surrounding the risks and failures of vaccines, it's critical to protect your legal right to make independent health choices and exercise voluntary informed consent to vaccination. It is urgent that everyone stand up and fight to protect flexible medical, religious and conscientious belief vaccine exemptions and expand informed consent protections in state public health and employment laws.
Watch the video below to hear NVIC's Barbara Loe Fisher and Dr. Joe Mercola discuss what is at stake in America's Vaccine Culture War.

During this week, Dr. Joseph Mercola will double match your donations up to $100,000 to the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), a non-profit charity advocating for vaccine safety and protection of the ethical principle of informed consent to medical risk taking, including vaccine risk taking.
NVIC's mission since 1982 has been to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and to defend your legal right to exercise informed consent to vaccination.

"...it was a Merck vaccine (Hepatitis B), I remember when I was at the CDC in 1985 with a mother who had a child die after DPT vaccine; we were reporting the death there at the meeting in Atlanta...so the manufacturer rep gets up and says to the CDC, and this is why they own it, he said, look, to the CDC officials, if you can't get the high risk groups to take this vaccine that we've poured all this research and development into, you're just gonna have to pass a law to shoot it in the arms of every high school kid in the country, cause we are not going to have an orphan drug on our hands; and instead, they decided to shoot it into the arms or the legs of every newborn as soon as they're born in this country."

"I believe that we still have a chance, even though we're up against such enormous power...the mothers most of the time are the ones who take their children into doctors. That's been true forever. Mothers are the ones who've got this in their DNA...I know it's there because that's the way that God intended us to have this, this, this inside of us so that we will give our lives for our children. It's programmed into us. We are responsible for nurturing them until they can function on their own; and I believe that it will be the mothers across the world...I do believe that we can turn this around but we have to be awake and we have to take action..."
