Report Vaccine Reactions - Its The Law!

Vaccines are pharmaceutical products. Like all pharmaceutical products, vaccines carry with them risks for injury and death that can be greater for some than others. Vaccines can cause a reaction that resolves without injury or the reaction can lead to permanent disability or even death. Also, sometimes vaccines fail to protect or only protect against an infectious disease for a short period of time.

This webpage provides the public with the ability to report vaccine reactions, failures and harassment. It also provides the public with the ability to search and analyze the tens of thousands of vaccine reaction reports submitted to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). Visit our Recognizing Vaccine Reactions to learn more about vaccine reaction symptoms.

NVIC Reporting Systems

NVIC worked with Congress to pass the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 and was responsible for urging the creation of safety provisions in that historic law. This included a centralized vaccine reaction reporting system, the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), that is jointly operated by the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Prior to this law, there was no centralized reporting system for vaccine reactions.

Although this law requires doctors and other vaccine providers to report hospitalizations, injuries, deaths and serious health problems following vaccination to VAERS, it is estimated that between less than one to ten percent, of all vaccine-related health problems are ever reported to VAERS.

Reporting Vaccine Reactions

As a society we need to know how many people who get vaccinated are getting sick after vaccination and how many go on to die or are permanently injured. It is very important that ALL serious health problems, which develop after vaccination, be reported to VAERS. You should make a vaccine adverse event report to VAERS if you or your child has regressed physically, mentally or emotionally after vaccination or has experienced acute symptoms within hours, days or weeks of vaccination.


U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)

Since 1990, the U.S. Government has collected millions of vaccine adverse event reports, which is stored in the VAERS database and is available for anyone to search or download. Reports made to VAERS can assist federal officials in identifying vaccine safety signals and help reduce vaccine risks for everyone. If your doctor will not report a serious health problem you or your child suffered following vaccination, you have the ability to report a suspected vaccine reaction to VAERS on your own.

NVIC Vaccine Reaction Registry

Since 1982, the NVIC has operated a Vaccine Reaction Registry, which has served as a watchdog on reports submitted to VAERS and provides an opportunity for NVIC to follow-up with individuals submitting reports to us with additional information and resources. If you have experienced a vaccine adverse event, please report it to VAERS and to NVIC's Reaction Registry.

Vaccine adverse event reports submitted to VAERS are available to the public and may be searched using the below listed database search engines. VAERS is a passive reporting system and there are limitations when interpreting search results from the VAERS database. The federal disclaimer on the limitations of VAERS may be viewed on each search engine.



NVIC hosts MedAlerts, a powerful and user friendly VAERS database search engine offering increased search and reporting capabilities in comparison to the federal CDC Wonder search engine. MedAlerts now offers the public the ability to use Proportional Reporting Ratio (PRR), which is a statistical method used by the CDC to analyze reports submitted to VAERS for vaccine safety signals.

U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Wonder VAERS Search Engine

Since 1990, the U.S. Government has collected over a million vaccine adverse event reports, which is stored in the VAERS database and is available for anyone to search or download via the CDC's Wonder search engine. Search VAERS database with CDC Wonder.


Impact of Vaccine Recommendations and Mandates

As more vaccines have been recommended and mandated by government health officials, NVIC is receiving more reports from Americans describing how they are being harassed for trying to make informed vaccine choices for themselves and their children:

  • Children are being denied a public education if their parents do not show state officials proof they have received all state mandated vaccines or have obtained a signature from a medical worker when they file a religious of personal belief exemption to vaccination;
  • Doctors are refusing to provide medical care to children and adults who do not agree to get every government recommended vaccine;
  • Employees are being fired if they do not get employer mandated vaccines.
  • Vaccine failures may not be reported.
If you have experienced any of the above, please choose one or more options below to share your experience.

Reporting Vaccine Failure 

No vaccine is 100 percent effective for everyone. Vaccines don't always prevent disease. Vaccine failures and vaccine strain infections do occur. It is important to understand that vaccinated persons can still get infectious diseases, as well as transmit them to others. Read stories shared by others on NVIC's Vaccine Failure Wall, and report a vaccine failure here.

Vaccine Harassment Reporting 

Have you been threatened or sanctioned by your employer, doctor, school personnel or public health official for delaying or declining a vaccine for yourself or your child? View harassment stories on NVIC's Cry for Vaccine Freedom Wall and report vaccine harassment here.

The Truth & Freedom Monument located at the Mercola Market in Cape Coral, Florida was created by NVIC and co-sponsored by Dr. Joseph Mercola. It was dedicated on March 25, 2023 to celebrate the four decades that NVIC has been working to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths and through public education, to protect the ethical principle of informed consent to medical risk-taking, and to defend freedom of thought, speech and conscience. The centerpiece of the monument is a silvered bronze angel holding a child in one arm and the light of truth in the other.

If you visit the physical monument in Cape Coral, please consider taking a photo in front of the angel and sharing your experience with us on our website. Click on the button above to learn more about posting your experience on our virtual Truth & Freedom Monument. You may also share your experience on our virtual monument page, even if you are unable to physically visit the memorial in Flordia.

Since 1982, NVIC has been receiving reports that describe vaccine reactions, injuries, deaths, and failures. As implementation of one-size-fits-all vaccine policies and mandatory vaccination laws have become more and more coercive over the past 40 years, we also have received many reports of threats and harassment targeting people, especially parents, who decline one or more government recommended vaccines for themselves or a minor child. 

Medical professionals are often forced to choose between getting vaccinated and keeping their job or declining a vaccine and losing their job. Parents and their children are being discriminated against and punished by pediatricians refusing to provide medical care to a child if the parent asks too many questions or wants to vaccinate their child using a different schedule than the one recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and, especially, if the parent refuses to give a child every vaccine on the CDC schedule. Too many parents are struggling to raise children injured by vaccines that the child was required to receive as a condition for getting an education or receiving medical care and, 

These true life stories of coercion and vaccine injury represent real people, whose lives have been forever changed by a vaccine they were required to get. At NVIC, we believe what happened to them must not be swept under the rug and minimized or forgotten. 

Please consider sharing your vaccine experience with others to help educate the public about vaccine risks and failures and the impact that coercive vaccine policies have on the lives of people. If you know someone who has first-hand experience with vaccine reactions or being coerced to get vaccinated, please pass this information on to them.
