Rhode Island it is time to #BE BRAVE!!

This is the end of Autism Awareness Month and not a mention from the Rhode Island State House.  If you have seen Vaxxed the Movie, you may recall at the end of the film a call to action was mentioned to ask Congress to subpoena Dr. William Thompson the CDC whistle blower to testify before Congress about manipulation of data and corruption in the MMR study.  We have a resolution being heard to do just that.  A resolution is a shot across the bow, a warning that we are aware and we want action!  Just as we were the first to revolt in the Revolutionary War (remember the burning of the Gaspee)  Come out and support Senate Resolution 2670.

The RI Senate Committee on Health and Human Services will be holding a hearing Tuesday, May 1st and will consider bills we are supporting with regard to health freedom of choice, vaccines and human rights.

The bills authored by Senator Metts  (S2605 and Senate Resolution 2670) and Senator Goodwin (S2744) are the ones we are working hard promote and pass.

This will not happen without the efforts of everyone.  Make your best effort to appear and testify.  Email written testimony or call Chairman Miller. 401-276-5582 and Senate President Ruggerio 401 222-6655 and tell them you support these bills and want them brought to the floor for passage.

Time to Let your voice be heard.

CALL TO ACTION

Let your Voice Be Heard

Tell your story

 

Have you taken your child to a well baby check-up and were given little or no information on the vaccines to be given and told simply that they were required?  Now is the time to speak up for informed consent.

 

Have you asked questions about the vaccines to be given to yourself or your child and your doctor simply said they are “necessary, safe and effective” and was annoyed by your question? Now is the time to speak up for informed consent.

 

Have you refused one or more vaccines or wanted to use an alternative vaccine schedule and your doctor asked you to find another doctor?  Now is the time to let your voice be heard.

 

Were you told vaccines are mandatory, and your child could not attend daycare, preschool, etc. without them? Now is the time to stand up for the truth!

 

Did you submit a religious exemption form for the HPV Gardasil 9 vaccine?   Now is the time to stand up for your rights to be fully informed.

Honoring Colton Berrett

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.   

Looking forward to 2018.

Happy Holidays!

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,

Deb O’Leary

Eighth Annual Vaccine Awareness Week

  • November 5-11th, is Vaccine Awareness Week.  The National Vaccine Information Center in association with Mercola.com will be hosting a series of online videos on Vaccine safety and Informed Consent.  Go to www.nvic.org for more information.
  • #RIAVC has received several inquiries regarding vaccine choice friendly pediatricians in Rhode Island. It appears they are difficult to find.  If your doctor is “friendly” and taking new patients, please contact us.
  • Don’t forget to set your clocks back 1 hour tonight!

 

 

 

Are We Doing Enough Raising Vaccine Awareness?

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.

How can you help others who need vaccine choice information?    Share this blog!

A Message From The Board – March 8, 2017

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?

Please visit our Resources Page for updated Senate/Representative lists, The Senate Committee lists and other valuable resources.

– Deb
