While the vaccine mandate mess may sometimes feel like a hopeless situation, there are signs of good news on the horizon. People are starting to understand exactly how shaky of a foundation the entire mandatory vaccination system is built upon.
Vaccine Awareness Week Update 2021
The COVID-19 shots are waking people up to vaccine myths, such as the idea that vaccination always prevents infection and transmission, and is the only way to achieve herd immunity. The truth is that many vaccines don’t prevent infection or transmission, and vaccine-acquired immunity is typically temporary. Sometimes you don't get it at all
Over the past 18 months, the number of people asking questions about vaccine safety has grown significantly. The subscriber base to the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC)’s The Vaccine Reaction journal newspaper has increased by more than 50%
After 9/11, Congress and the pharmaceutical industry got together and passed BioShield legislation that expands liability protection for drug companies marketing pandemic drugs and vaccines in the U.S.
The PREP Act’s Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP) is so inadequate, if you’re injured by a drug or vaccine used under a public health emergency declaration, it’s nearly impossible to receive compensation
Health authorities and government officials have proven their incompetence during this pandemic. From the beginning, they neglected and actually prevented safe and effective treatments from being widely used — a decision that has resulted in unnecessary deaths and needless suffering
This week, we celebrate our 12th anniversary of Vaccine Awareness Week. In this video, Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) — which will celebrate its 40th anniversary as an organization in April 2022 — summarizes some of the high and low points we've experienced over the past year.
"It's really kind of surreal for me to watch what has unfolded since the winter of 2020," Fisher says. "In the 1990s, I predicted that the day would come when we would not be able to function in society unless we had received every government recommended vaccine.
I didn't exactly understand how they would get there. Well, now we know how they got there, and it's like living my worst nightmare, which I thought my children and grandchildren would be grappling with after I was long gone. Instead, I'm here to witness it and it's very disturbing.
But within this difficult challenge, we also have opportunity, because I truly think that what they've done has completely changed the public's view of public health officials and of public health policy in general. And I don't think they're going to recover — perhaps ever — but certainly not for a long, long time.
The perception is that the public has not been told the whole truth about how this virus came about, and about the way in which they [need to] handle it.
Certainly, if you look at it, you see that psychological warfare has been used to create such fear and anxiety in the minds of so many people that they were willing to give up fundamental civil liberties in order to feel safe, [but it's] an illusion of safety … I think they have overreached, because they are zealots in saying that everyone should get all these vaccines in order to keep the public safe."
Growing Understanding of Vaccine Dangers
According to Fisher, polls show two-thirds of Americans do not want COVID shot mandates.1 They do not want to be required to show a vaccine passport in order to participate in society, enter a restaurant or a store, hold a job or go to college.2 "There is definitely not an appetite in this country for mandatory use of this COVID-19 vaccine," Fisher says.
[People are] starting to understand that vaccines do not prevent infection and transmission. The entire mandatory vaccination system has been built on the myth that if you get vaccinated, you cannot get infected and transmit the infection to other people. The truth is that vaccine-acquired immunity is often very temporary and sometimes you don't get it at all. ~ Barbara Loe Fisher, NVIC
