WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The non-profit charity National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC.org) and Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder of the Mercola.com health website, are co-sponsoring the fifth annual Vaccine Awareness Week Nov. 8-15, 2014 and publishing a series of articles, interviews, special reports and video presentations in the Mercola Newsletter and on NVIC.org.
The new film Bought: The Truth Behind Vaccines, Big Pharma and Your Food can be viewed for $4.95 through Mercola.com as a fundraiser for NVIC until Nov. 21, 2014. The film focuses on Big Pharma and Big Agriculture cover-ups and profit-making in the drug, vaccine and GMO food industries. Producer Jeff Hays said, “From opiates, to statins, to a blizzard of psychotropic medications that do far more harm than good, the film covers how our entire health care system, from education to practice has been ‘Bought.’”
A new fully referenced report published on NVIC.org, The Emerging Risks of Live Virus and Virus Vectored Vaccines: Vaccine Strain Virus Infection, Shedding and Transmission answers the question, “Can People Receiving Live Virus Vaccines Transmit Vaccine Strain Virus to Others?” The Nov. 9, 2014 Mercola Newsletter features an article and video interview with Dr. Mercola and the report’s author, NVIC president Barbara Loe Fisher.
“The public has been kept in the dark about what public health officials do and do not know about the risks of live virus vaccines promoted for mandated use by everyone,” said NVIC’s Barbara Loe Fisher. “There should be a much more open public conversation about the potential long term risks of live virus and viral vectored vaccines being developed for global use.”
On Nov. 11, a Mercola Newsletter article explores the Ebola outbreak in Africa and cases diagnosed in the U.S. and features an NVIC video commentary, Will There Be An Ebola Outbreak in America?, which reviews the timeline of the Ebola outbreak and the fast-tracking of experimental virus vectored Ebola vaccines.
On Nov. 13, an illustrated video presentation, Vaccination: Defending Your Right to Know and Freedom to Choose, given by NVIC’s Barbara Loe Fisher at the 2014 U.S. Health Freedom Congress in Minneapolis will be posted on NVIC.org and published in the Mercola Newsletter.
Beginning Nov. 15 and through Nov. 21, Mercola.com will offer free online viewing of the award winning 2011 documentary The Greater Good, which highlights the lives of three families affected by vaccine injuries and deaths. The film features interviews with doctors and consumer advocates criticizing vaccine safety and advocating for vaccine choices, as well as doctors and public health officials defending vaccine safety and opposing vaccine choices.
“I am a strong proponent that everyone has the right to make informed and voluntary decisions about how they want to stay healthy and heal,” said Dr. Mercola. “Education is the key to empowering people to make wise vaccination choices for themselves and their children and that is the purpose of Vaccine Awareness Week, which also highlights the long standing, responsible consumer advocacy work of the National Vaccine Information Center.”

NVIC is a founding partner of the non-profit Health Liberty Coalition, which was launched in 2011 by Mercola.com, to promote the public’s right to know about and freedom to make voluntary vaccine choices, use mercury-free amalgams, drink fluoride-free water and eat organic and non-GMO food.
