Colton Berrett was injured by the Gardasil Vaccine. It left him paralyzed and unable to breathe unassisted or hold his head up on his own. Despite this devastating injury, Colton had a wonderful, positive outlook. He worked hard to learn to walk again. He was interviewed by the Vaxxed Team in his native Utah in 2016. Watch here: Colton Barrett 2016
Colton’s wish was to see a day when no child, teen, or young adult is injured by any HPV vaccine. Sadly, Colton left this world unexpectedly on Friday, January 5, 2018 at the age of 18. He joins a growing list of Gardasil Angels. His loving and supportive family are devastated by his passing. Please “Pray Big” that they may find comfort in God’s grace.
In Rhode Island, we can all honor Colton and his wish by continuing to inform and educate our friends, family, elected officials and especially medical professionals about the risks involved in vaccination, particularly the Gardasil vaccine. This ineffective and unsafe vaccine must be removed from the recommended CDC schedule and the Rhode Island school attendance requirements.
I know you are all busy with Holiday preparations. It is that time of year when we enjoy time with family and friends. While you spend time sharing food, drink and holiday cheer with others, take the opportunity to share this information about vaccine safety.
In this video taped early this year, vaccine safety advocate, producer and medical journalist, Del Bigtree, presents a Vaccine Safety Project power point developed by the World Mercury Project. This information will inform and empower. Less than an hour of your time.
Del Bigtree-vaccine safety
In the new year, let’s all continue the work to inform and protect the rights of all to vaccine choice and health freedom.
Wishing you good health and good cheer in the New Year,
In 1986, the United State Congress passed a bill called The 1986 Childhood Vaccine Injury Act.
This bill was written and supported by the pharmaceutical companies who manufactured vaccines. In the early 1980’s there were increasing numbers of liability lawsuits filed by parents of children who were injured or killed by the DTP vaccine. Some of the settlements were sizable. These vaccine makers threatened to stop producing vaccines altogether unless something was done.
What Congress did was make it nearly impossible to sue a vaccine maker or a doctor administering a vaccine. Instead, they created a “vaccine court” within the US Court of Claims and began adding a fee to every vaccine dose sold in the USA to fund it. Since 1987, the vaccine court has paid out over 3.7 Billion dollars.
The CDC recommended vaccine schedule has grown unchecked from 24 doses of 3 vaccines to 72 doses of 13 vaccines and more are being considered for approval. Most are required for school attendance and child care. Forty eight states, including Rhode Island, allow religious or philosophical exemptions to vaccination. California, Mississippi and West Virginia have only a medical exemption. A manufacturer can be sued if your child’s crib falls apart, but if your baby dies or becomes seriously injured by a vaccine, the manufacturers and medical personnel who administer the vaccine, have no liability.
2017 is the year this could all change. Below are links to a letter and a supporting white paper sent to the Acting Secretary of HHS by the Informed Consent Action Network which questions HHS compliance with the provisions regarding vaccine safety and if they have been followed. Please read by clicking on here HHS Letter and Documents
The HHS Secretary has 60 days to reply to ICAN’s request.
Informed Consent: knowing all the risks, benefits and alternatives to any medical treatment.
YOUR RIGHT, YOUR CHOICE, YOUR HEALTH
Parents, Please do your Research!
April, the month when our sixth graders once again will be reminded that they will need more vaccines to enter 7th grade. It is the one year anniversary of the documentary Vaxxed: From Cover up to Catastrophe and two years since our movement for Vaccine Choice in Rhode Island began. Great news! The Vaxxed Bus with Polly Tommey and Dr. Suzanne Humphries will be coming to Rhode Island this year. We will keep you abreast of dates and locations as soon as we know them.
In the News:
This week’s Warwick Beacon has an article on the HPV vaccine requirements. In my interview I mentioned the Gardasil manufacturers insert. I also mentioned that parents need to do their own research on vaccines. The link to all the manufacturers inserts are on our resources page. The excipient list of all vaccine ingredients is found here as well. Here is a video by Dr. Suzanne Humphries on the information contained in the Gardasil 9 Insert.
Last evening, Tucker Carlson on Fox News spoke with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on the topic of vaccine safety. This is the first mainstream media coverage of vaccine safety. Five minutes is not long enough. We hope the discussion continues.
Start Your Research:
If you need quick information on the vaccine scheduled and ingredients, visit the resources page on this website
RI Vaccine Legislation:
There are four bills currently in the General Assembly. H 5986 and H 5919 in the House HEW committee and S 047 and S 0489 in the Senate which have yet to be heard. We will be there to testify on the Senate bills. The dates have not been announced yet. Information on contacting your State Senators and Representatives is on our resource page. To read each bill go to www.RI.gov and click on Legislative. These bills expand and protect vaccine exemptions and limit DOH on which vaccines they can require for school attendance.
Outreach and Education:
Do you have questions?. RIAVC can help. Do you have a group who would like to view the documentary Vaxxed: From Cover up to Catastrophe or who want more vaccine information and discussion? If so, contact us, we may be able to a arrange small group showing or informational session. You can always email or contact us on Facebook with individual questions and we will do our best to provide you resources.
Where there is Risk, there must be Choice.

Dear Rhode Island Families: This hasn’t been a cake walk.
Last year, we came together to testify at the State House to protect and preserve our rights to Informed Medical Consent and Vaccine Choice and that the HPV vaccine be removed. The bills which would have achieved these goals never came out of committee. It was disappointing.
Our group has continued to work throughout the year to inform and raise awareness. The release of the documentary “Vaxxed from Coverup to Catastrophe” about the CDC whistleblower and his documentation of scientific fraud on the CDC 2004 MMR study, became a catalyst which brought new faces and voices who shared their concerns about the safety of our increasing vaccine schedule. We attended a showing of Vaxxed at Brown University Medical School and members of our group attended the Vaccine Advisory Committee meeting at the Rhode Island Department of Health this past December.
As we predicted last year, more vaccines were added to the RI schedule after the HPV vaccine mandate. This year, the Rhode Island Department of Health added two doses of the Meningitis B vaccine for 16 to 18 year olds. The brand names are Bexsero and Trumenda. This will affect all college students attending in Rhode Island.
There were two senate bills introduced in this legislative session and we hope you take the time to read and support them. Senate Bill S0047 was introduced by Senator Raptakis & Senator Elaine Morgan. Senate Bill S0489 was introduced by Senator Raptakis & Senator Elaine Morgan Senator Metts, Senator Kettle, and Senator Paolino. Please be sure to thank them for their support.
We also ask that you send a personal email to each member of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee. Be sure to write the bill(s) # in the subject line and whether you are in favor or opposed. In your email briefly tell your story: What brought you to the vaccine safety/informed consent issue in the first place. Do you have a child with a vaccine injury? Was your child given a vaccine without your knowledge or consent? Were you bullied or threatened by a health care provider to vaccinate against your better judgement? Did your doctor fail to inform you of all the risks of each vaccine? Did your doctor fail to address your concerns? Are you pregnant and worried that vaccination during pregnancy can cause harm to your developing baby? Were you not informed of your option to submit a religious exemption? Why is vaccine choice and safety important to you?
