Why Avoid Vaccines
It’s Your Health. Your family. Your Choice.
IF You Vaccinate, Ask Eight
1. Am I or my child sick right now?
2. Have I or my child had a bad reaction to a vaccination before?
3. Do I or my child have a personal or family history of vaccine reactions,
neurological disorders, severe allergies or immune system problems?
4. Do I know the disease and vaccine risks for myself or my child?
5. Do I have full information about the vaccine’s side effects?
6. Do I know how to identify and report a vaccine reaction?
7. Do I know I need to keep a written record, including the vaccine manufacturer’s
name and lot number, for all vaccinations?
8. Do I know I have the right to make an informed choice?
Under the U.S. National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, more than $2 billion has
been awarded to children and adults for whom the risks of vaccination were 100% and
caused injury or death.
Common Sense Ways to Protect Yourself
Most healthy people, who get type A or type B influenza, are left with long lasting, natural
immunity that helps protect them when that strain or a similar strain of influenza circulates
again in the future. Here are some common sense ways to help you avoid getting the flu and
also help you heal faster if you do get the flu:
1. Wash your hands frequently.
2. Avoid close contact with those who are sick.
3. If you are sick, avoid close contact with those who are well.
4. Cover your mouth if you cough or sneeze.
5. Drink plenty of fluids, especially water.
6. Get adequate sleep and lower stress.
7. Eat healthy foods rich in vitamins D and C (take a vitamin D supplement in the winter or
all year around if you are indoors most of the time)
8. Exercise regularly when you are well.
9. Consider holistic options to heal and stay well, such as chiropractic, homeopathic,
naturopathic and acupuncture.

Have Flu Vaccines Been Proven Safe & Effective?
Vaccines, including flu shots, stimulate a temporary, partial immunity. Vaccination does not exactly mimic the natural disease process and does not give longer lasting immunity that most healthy people get naturally after experiencing and recovering from infectious diseases, including influenza.
Can Flu Vaccines Cause injury or Death?
Vaccines, like prescription drugs, are pharmaceutical products that carry a risk of injury or death. Vaccine risks can be greater for some than others depending upon a person’s health at the time of vaccination, personal and family medical history, whether there has been a previous vaccine reaction, and other factors.
Vaccines stimulate the immune system to mount a temporary inflammatory response so antibodies are produced. Sometimes the inflammatory response stimulated by vaccination does not resolve and leads to chronic inflammation in the body that causes serious, permanent health problems or even death.
Always read the vaccine manufacturer’s product information insert for descriptions of vaccine studies, precautions and reported vaccine reactions, injuries and deaths. You can also view vaccine reaction reports at NVIC.org.
Are Some People At Higher Risk for Vaccine Reactions?
Like with prescription drugs, adverse responses to vaccines can vary from person to person.
The CDC lists the following high risk factors that can predispose a person to having a serious reaction to a flu shot:
• People who have a severe allergy to chicken eggs.
• People who have had a severe reaction to an influenza vaccination in the past.
• People who have a moderate or severe illness with a fever at the time of vaccination
• People who developed Guillian-Barré syndrome (GBS) within 6 weeks of getting an
influenza vaccine previously.
• Children younger than 6 months of age (influenza vaccine is not approved for use in this
The National Vaccine Information Center opposes intimidation and sanctions against any American, who declines a flu shot, because it violates the ethical principle of voluntary, informed consent to medical risk-taking.
