Vaccines - Good or Bad?
VIVE Foundation neither supports nor opposes vaccines. The Foundation will always recommend that all consumers make informed health care choices and will always support a parent or individual's right to choose whether or not to vaccinate.
VIVE simply recognizes that vaccine injuries CAN and DO happen. We know this not only from personal experience, but typically prior to receiving a vaccine the patient (or parent) needs to give consent by signing a form that states the type of injuries or side effects that may occur. In addition, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was signed into law in 1989, whereby the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and the Department of Justice (DOJ) all recognize that vaccine injuries occur.
