Week 1 – 2016 Email Campaign

Our personal exemptions option, or personal choice to not vaccinate, is being threatened under Assembly Bill AB924.

Copy and paste this letter (and any endnotes) into an email to your Wisconsin legislators today! Don’t forget to add your name and address to the bottom.


Dear Legislator,

Many parents ask, “Are Vaccines safe?” Which leads me to ask if vaccines are safe, why are we protecting the vaccine manufacturers?

The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (NCVIA) removes any liability from manufacturers and doctors should a child sustain a vaccine injury or death.

The CDC claims vaccines are “safe and effective.” But in 2011, the U.S Supreme Court said that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe.”[1]

The Federal government payout for vaccine injury and death total to date (1989 – February 2016) is $3.3 Billion.[2]

The average annual payout between 1989 and 2015 were $120+Million per year. The average annual payout between 2010 and 2015 is $221.8 Million per year.

The Cases pending as of February 2016: 2,332.

On December 4, 2015 the U.S Department of Justice (DOJ) and Division of Injury Compensation Programs (DICP) reported that the number of vaccine injury claims for this year will exceed previous years.[3]

The estimated 1,000 claims that the VICP anticipates being filed in 2016 are projected to cost $224 million. Today it is not children but adults injured by influenza vaccine who are receiving most of the compensation.[4]

If the government can’t decide whether vaccines are “safe and effective” or “unavoidably unsafe,” parents should have the final say.

Since there’s a risk, there must be a choice!

Please oppose any legislation that threatens the personal and religious vaccine exemptions. For more information on reports of vaccine adverse reactions, please see https://vaers.hhs.gov/esub/.
