The truth about vaccination

EVERY parent wants to do what is best for their child. Every parent will seek information, and sadly, some will be misled by self-appointed "experts" and organisations who are not expert at all. One such organisation is the Australian Vaccination Network (AVN). The AVN claims to be a pro-choice group. It is, in fact, an organisation that is entirely dedicated to dissuade the public from vaccinations through the use of selective quoting of scientific data, misrepresentation and fabricated evidence. A recent investigation conducted by the Health Care Complaints Commission (HCCC) found that the Australian Vaccination Network’s website: Provides information that is solely anti-vaccination Contains information that is incorrect and misleading Quotes selectively from research to suggest that vaccination may be dangerous.

There is an abundance of credible scientific evidence to demonstrate that the risk from vaccines is far lower than the risk from vaccine-preventable illnesses. Before you make your decision on whether to vaccinate your child, we urge you to seek out unbiased, accurate advice from reputable medical sources. The Australian Vaccination Network is no such source.
