Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority it is time to pause and reflect.

Mark Twain, 1904.
 

 

 

 

 

VAIS is an information resource supporting non-vaccinators and those willing to question and investigate the practice of vaccination.

VAIS was originally formed in 1993 by a group of parents with vaccine damaged children, focused primarily on supporting individuals and families who have suffered a vaccine injury or death, and encounter discrimination, abuse and exclusion as a result. There is no government support or compensation for vaccine damaged families. Many VAIS subscribers also include those registered as conscientious objectors, religious or medically exempt, or who refuse or cannot vaccinate.

VAIS is non-profit, managed and funded by volunteers who network together to meet the communities requests for vaccination research and media. We strive to empower subscribers and visitors to honour their decisions about their health and the health of their families. Under NO circumstances do we provide medical advice or coerce individuals from vaccinating.

VAIS is not anti-vaccination, respecting those who have made an educated decision to vaccinate in part or completely. VAIS focus is education, not blind faith. This site includes links to both state and federal vaccine marketing and literature, policy development, manufacturers product inserts and pro-vaccine media reports. Unfortunately, pro-vaccine media and lobby groups have stifled much needed debate and concerns over vaccine safety, which we encourage vaccinating families to also review and question.

A growing number of medical and scientific professionals are raising valid and serious concerns over the quality of research, and integrity of the vaccine industry that continues to provide the overwhelming majority of research supporting vaccination, not to mention the economic and political influence they have in government endorsement. This site presents case studies, research and scientific literature that is being actively suppressed, ridiculed or ignored.

Where necessary, we address the media, government, medical and pharmacuetical companies regarding vaccination marketing, discrimination, misleading information and financial penalties. We strive to uphold the right to freedom of choice based on independent research and personal adversity. We also network with health professionals to better support their clients.

Does The Government Want You To Make Informed Decisions?

According to US behavioural research, NO. It is far more effective to appeal through emotive manipulation, medical propaganda and financial incentives (or penalties).

Australian Medical Observer: Five Ways To Boost Vaccination Rates

ATTEMPTS to boost childhood vaccination levels might be more successful if they are based on leveraging “how people actually think, rather than on how they ought to think”, commentators say in a Viewpoint article in JAMA Pediatrics. Rather than focusing on rational ‘education’ of parents, it might be more productive to appeal to their emotions, employing behavioural principles, they write.

Exerpt from JAMA Pediatrics paper: Leveraging Behaviourial Insights to Promote Vaccine Acceptance

In summary, the research recommends:

  • Make the dangers of infectious disease more visible with stories and photos of child patients to counter the prominence of information about children harmed by vaccines.
  • Emphasise the social acceptability of vaccination, by pointing out that the vast majority of parents choose it for their children
  • Ensure there is an immediate benefit from vaccination such as through financial incentives
  • Make it harder for parents to ‘do nothing’ about vaccination, such as through laws requiring a doctor’s signature for exemption.
  • Frame vaccination as the default position through counselling approaches that presume the parent will vaccinate rather than inviting deliberation about vaccination.

Australian media wholeheartedly endorses this approach...


Online Support network

We encourage you to explore the information on this site, and subscribe to the growing number of activist sites that provide regular updates and online forums. These are listed on our Explore More page.

There is a great deal to consider when making such a socially and politically charged decision, but knowing you are not alone can provide reassurance and empower you to stand by your decision and discuss vaccination confidently with your health provider, colleagues, friends and family.

What can I do to make a difference?

You can participate in on-line petitions, email politicians for recognition or change to government policy, respond to misleading articles and/or discriminating journalism on television, radio and websites via facebook, twitter and letters to the editor, via email. It may feel like a drop in the ocean, but collectively it adds weight to those who are doing the very same thing. Be the activist for your personal freedom and right to choose your health care. If not you, then who? If not now, then when?
