Story at-a-glance -

  • In 2010, the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) launched the NVIC Advocacy Portal, a free online vaccine choice advocacy network, for the purpose of securing and defending informed consent protections in vaccine policies and laws
  • During the 2019 legislative session, 22 bills across 17 states were filed to attempt to eliminate vaccine exemptions. Three bills passed, 12 died and seven are still pending in California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin
  • While media hyped bills attacking exemptions, there were almost as many bills to expand informed consent rights as there were to eliminate or restrict those rights. This can be directly credited to positive action taken by forward-thinking state legislators given fact-based information about vaccines, exemptions and diseases by concerned citizens who took the time to make one-on-one personal contact with their elected representatives
  • Of the 137 vaccine-related bills NVIC opposed, only 18 bad bills passed
  • It is critical that vaccine choice advocates in every state register for and check in to the NVIC Advocacy Portal. The most important thing you can do is to establish relationships with and educate your legislators now and into next year so you can be ready to counter bills that will restrict or eliminate exemptions and get good bills filed to protect and expand vaccine exemptions

Citizen involvement in the legislative process to protect the human right to exercise informed consent to vaccination increased to unprecedented levels in 2019 to meet the most aggressive and unwarranted attack on vaccine exemptions in U.S. history.

In a 2019 Annual Report on U.S. State Vaccine Legislation, the nonprofit educational charity National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) reports that during the 2019 legislative session, 22 bills across 17 states were filed to attempt to eliminate vaccine exemptions.
