IMPORTANT NOTICE TO VACCINATION NEWS VISITORS:

In about a year and a half, unless the site has become fully membership-funded, you will start seeing only RSS feed articles like those that are posted below the currently manually posted links.  (Do check out the difference!)

In order to accomplish full funding of the site, we are going to start charging the very small access fee of $5.00/year as soon as possible.  Of course, donations will always be welcome and will help meet the very important goal of covering my costs.

I’m sorry that it has to be this way, but I can no longer afford the considerable expense required to maintain the only vaccination news and information website that provides “all sides” in one very convenient,  time-saving place.  

All the best,
