There Is No Freedom Without Health Freedom

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

Starting in July 2018, Vaccination News will no longer be manually updating the news because I can no longer afford to do it and I get almost no financial help.  I have tried numerous solutions, including charging $10/yr but even that was too much for but a few people.

To see what the news will look like, scroll down the page to the RSS feed articles.

I welcome the opportunity to continue as before by receiving the necessary funding, so am giving everyone enough of heads up to possibly come up with it.  Costs, including legal and technical fees, are about $20,000/year, most of which I have been covering for many years.

All the best,

Sandy Gottstein
