NVIC Online Conference
Welcome to the Fifth International Public Conference on Vaccination sponsored by the non-profit National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) that was first broadcast online Oct. 16 through 18, 2020 with the theme of Protecting Health and Autonomy in the 21st Century. NVIC’s 2020 conference was scheduled in late 2018 to be held in 2020 in a hotel in the Washington, D.C. area like the previous conferences on vaccination that NVIC sponsored in 1997, 2000, 2002 and 2009, which also were transparently open to the general public.
NVIC Pivots to a Virtual Conference. In March 2020, when coronavirus pandemic-related social distancing and travel restrictions were instituted, NVIC staff quickly pivoted to the production of a virtual conference. Like NVIC’s previous conferences, the goal is to provide information and perspective on long-standing and emerging scientific, medical policy, legal and ethical issues related to health and vaccination that will empower individuals to make well-informed decisions for themselves and their children.
51 Selected Speakers.
This conference features video presentations by 51 selected speakers, award presentations, a special guest appearance, and a film documentary and was originally broadcast over a three day and evening period. Biographical information is included in the introductions of speakers before each presentation.
This conference was organized to be an educational event and you are encouraged to follow the conference agenda and view presentations in sequential order. This will allow you to experience the conference as it was originally broadcast.
Tickets No Longer Available – Watch for Announcement. Tickets to view NVIC’s first online conference were $80 and included lifetime access to presentations. More than 3,000 people registered and viewed the conference broadcast in October 2020, and attendees came from every state in the U.S., as well as from Canada, Australia, Europe, Asia and Africa.
Currently, conference presentations can be viewed only by those who registered and previously purchased tickets to view the conference. However, in light of a public attack launched by a UK media outlet in late December 2020, which created disinformation about NVIC’s conference disseminated by major U.S. news outlets, NVIC is exploring options for opening up the conference website to the public for free viewing.
NVIC will make an announcement as soon as a date has been set for making content on this conference website more widely available.
“Show Us the Science”
The quality and quantity of the science being used to buttress public health policy and law in the 21st century, particularly vaccine policy and law, has been debated since the mid-20th century when serious adverse reactions to whole cell pertussis (DPT) vaccine were acknowledged in the medical literature and publicized in Europe and the U.S. This 2020 conference, like the four previous public conferences on vaccination sponsored by NVIC between 1997 and 2009, features presentations by scientists, physicians and health professionals examining vaccine science policy, law and ethics.
Multidisciplinary Approach. During Session 1 of this conference, scientific information is provided by speakers with expertise in biology and bioinorganic chemistry; pediatrics, immunology and molecular genetics, physics, health research methods, pharmaceutical policy, family practice, internal medicine, pathology and molecular diagnostics, molecular and cellular physiology, pharmacology, immunotoxicology and microbiology.
Speakers discuss vaccine ingredients, monitoring vaccine side effects, epidemiology of SARS-Cov-2, development of COVID-9 vaccines, flaws in clinical trial designs, pharmaceutical product marketing, HPV vaccine risk factors, use of human fetal cell lines to produce and test vaccines, research into the reported association between inflammation, epigenetics and autism, and how human health is affected by the microbiome.
Before Session 1 begins, NVIC co-founder and president Barbara Loe Fisher opens the conference with a Welcome to attendees. She gives an overview of the conference and offers perspective on the need to defend autonomy and the legal right to exercise informed consent to vaccination.

U.S. and International Vaccine Choice Advocacy
Over the past four decades but, especially, during the 21st century, the pharmaceutical, medical trade and public health industries in partnerships with Big Tech companies and global communications corporations have stepped up lobbying efforts to eliminate flexible medical, religious and conscientious belief vaccine exemptions in public health laws. The debate about the science and ethics of mandatory vaccination has become more intense in the past decade as citizens of many countries push back against one-size-fits-all vaccine policies that apply increasingly more severe societal sanctions to individuals, who maintain that use of vaccines should be voluntary.
Vaccine Laws Reviewed. Session 2 at this conference reviews vaccine laws in the U.S., Canada and Europe and how inflexible vaccine mandates impact the lives of people. Speakers discuss the ways in which grassroots vaccine safety and informed consent movements are responding to threats to autonomy and freedom of thought, speech, and conscience with educational, legislative and civil court initiatives to defend the legal right to exercise voluntary, informed consent to vaccine risk taking.
The Paradigm Shift To Health & Liberty
The vaccine safety and informed consent movements in the U.S. and other countries have developed alongside other grassroots movements that began in the middle of the 20th century, such as social reform, environmental and holistic health movements that focused on civil and human rights, protection of the environment from industrial toxins and non-pharmaceutical options for healing and staying well. As the education level of populations is increasing in the U.S. and throughout the world, so is easier access to scientific, medical, legal and other types of information that consumers can use to make informed choices. Recent public opinion polls demonstrate that more people are asking more questions about the quality and quantity of the science being used to buttress medical policies, which rely almost exclusively on use of prescription drugs and vaccines.
Challenging the Status Quo: Medical and holistic health professionals are challenging the vaccine and drug dependent medical model as the sole option for preventing and treating illness. Attorneys are challenging the pharmaceutical industry and educational and law enforcement systems. Spiritual leaders and human rights activists are holding institutions accountable for eroding cultural values and beliefs and for violating freedom of religion and other civil liberties.
Presentations, Achievement Awards, Guest Appearance, Movie. Session 3 of this conference “The Paradigm Shift to Health & Liberty” features physicians who defend informed consent rights and have been sanctioned for exercising professional judgment and conscience; representatives of different faiths; holistic health leaders; a best selling author and an environmental protection activist; constitutional law and product liability attorneys; and a keynote presentation on “Defending Life and Liberty in the Vaccine Culture War.”
Session 3 ends with presentations of two NVIC Lifetime Achievement Awards to holistic health pioneer Dr. Joseph Mercola and posthumously to Jeanne Ohm, D.C., of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association; a guest appearance by actor and civil rights activist Rob Schneider; and a showing of the award-winning 2011 documentary The Greater Good, a character-driven movie that features interviews with families with vaccine-injured children, doctors, scientists and vaccine safety and health freedom activists.
Growing Our Grassroots Advocacy
A continuation of the scientific, medical, legal, ethical and holistic health themes that were explored in the previous three sessions, Session 4 of this conference features speakers discussing issues that inform grassroots vaccine safety and choice advocacy.
From Animal Vaccines, Medical Privacy and Adult Vaccine Mandates to Propaganda, Vaccine Liability Shields and Medical Atrocities. Topics covered in this session include animal vaccines; how to access and interpret information contained in the federal vaccine adverse event reporting system; the threat to medical privacy and informed consent rights posed by electronic health care records and vaccine tracking systems; the expansion of vaccine mandates to include adults; strategies used by mandatory vaccination proponents in state legislatures; COVID-19 vaccines; propaganda and psychological warfare; urban community education and organizing; historical examples of medical atrocities; vaccine product liability shields and the untold story of why and how the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was passed and then systematically dismantled.
Session 4 ends with a plea by the mother of an adult vaccine injured son for public recognition of the suffering of vaccine injured children and their families, and a brief Close by NVIC’s co-founder and president.
