Vaccine Awareness Week

Everyone needs to consider what they put into their body; however, those with Lyme/MSIDS need to be especially informed and cautious as our bodies are in a war of epic proportions.

This week from November 5-11, 2017 and the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) are co-sponsoring the Eighth Annual Vaccine Awareness Week (VAW), a week dedicated to raising awareness about vaccines and informed consent rights. With all the uncertainty surrounding the risks and failures of vaccines, it’s critical to protect your legal right to make independent health choices and exercise voluntary informed consent to vaccination. It is urgent that everyone stand up and fight to protect flexible medical, religious and conscientious belief vaccine exemptions and expand informed consent protections in state public health and employment laws.

In that effort, please take the quiz to see how much you know.
