Awareness Campaign~ counter RI Dept of Health

The RI Dept of Health recently sent out postcards direct to minors and also robo called homes of 7th and 8th grade parents in regards to vaccinations. Some calls were for multiple vaccines and some focused on the HPV vaccine. None of this effort gave risks vs benefits data or disclosed exemption options.

We are working to counter the efforts of the Dept of Health with informed consent via our Awareness Campaign. They have over a half million dollars to which they can delegate to different forms of marketing. We don’t need that much to still be loud and keep citizens informed.

Our current goal is $2500, If you give $8 or $80 or $800 it makes a BIG difference. Help with whatever amount you are able. 100 people giving $25 puts us at our goal. This is not just a RI issue, this is a national issue. RI reports the strategies to the National Vaccine Advisory Committee, along with their % of vaccinated children in the age range. NVAC is already advocating for minor consent without parental consent of the HPV vaccine, we need to show that we can and we WILL fight back. The nation leaders need to know that mandating HPV vaccines on any level anywhere in the USA is not acceptable.

This is very important issue on so many levels.

  • Mandating a vaccine for a disease that does not impact the classroom
  • Marketing direct to minors for medical procedures
  • Calling homes with automated messages, for a vaccine that this state has one of the highest vaccination rates in the country.
  • Neglecting informed consent

The RI Dept of Health has never been challenged by the public like we have done in the last year. They stepped up their efforts, we need to STAND UP STRONG. It is time to put them on the Defense. The more you give the more we can do.

Tax Dollars Used To Market Controversial HPV Vaccine Mandate

Tax Dollars Used To Market Controversial HPV Vaccine Mandate

Subject: Tax Dollars Used To Market Controversial HPV Vaccine Mandate

PRESS RELEASE for Immediate Release

JULY 5, 2016

Rhode Islanders against mandated HPV vaccinations (#NOHPVmandateRI) calls out the RI Dept, of Health

Recently, the RI Dept. of Health began robo-calls to households of children entering the seventh and eighth grade urging students to get vaccinations. This call outlines that HPV (human papillomavirus) is a dangerous disease. In never mentions that most cases of HPV are asymptomatic and that 90% of all cases clear themselves within two years. It does not inform that there are religious exemptions available for vaccinations in Rhode Island. Rhode Islanders against mandated HPV vaccinations (#NOHPVmandateRI)

The Dept. of Health doubled their efforts with postcards. Each one was sent in the name of the student and was marketing vaccinations. Direct health decision information mailed and marketed to minors. When did it become appropriate to bypass the parent for a medical procedure? Why is proper informed consent not being utilized? Why is there no mention of the religious or medical exemptions?

In 2014, the same year the vaccine was mandated, the RI Dept. of Health received a grant for the HPV vaccination of over $638,000. The grant money line item breakdown shows that none of the money is to purchase the vaccine or to subsidize the vaccine cost. The grant for over a half million dollars is to market one specific vaccination. Federal grant money, our tax dollars, was awarded in this large sum to the smallest state in the nation. So far none of their efforts have included risks vs benefits, which is essential to any medical procedure, or that Rhode Island has exemptions for parents. They have not yet returned a phone call from a group member, to determine if the grant was part of the National Vaccine Advisory Committee test market campaign of 2014.

“This marketing to minors is completely inappropriate,” says Aimee Gardiner, Director of #NOHPVmandateRI. “I do not feel it is a good use of tax dollars, to increase a push on vaccination especially for a vaccine this state already shows a high rate of students have received. It is concerning that a Dept that is supposed to be dedicated to Health and well-being does not respect informed consent, and then crosses into marketing at minors.”

“Parents are upset, and they have every right to be” Christine Waldeck of Providence adds. “I find it appalling that the automated call ends with ‘vaccines are safe, and vaccines work’, they are not one size fits all, some kids are seriously injured as evidenced by the billions of dollars in payouts to families from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.”

Rhode Islanders against mandated HPV vaccinations strongly encourages anyone not fully comfortable with receiving the HPV vaccination to file a religious exemption form. The RI HPV Info pack has the exemption form included, it is located at

A day of doing serious focus on the HPV vaccine. June 7th a lady called in hitting it spot on with great info, and many of the scientist in the room brushed it off due to her not having a title. So basically we need as many people that have some kind of medical title to call in during public comment. 12:45est

If you have doctors in your network willing to call in and speak against vaccines being mandatory and especially regarding the HPV. & any specific data relevant would a great thing.

from 10:15-11:30 they will be discussing the 2010 National Vaccine Plan mid-course review

11:45-12:45 Annual update on efforts to increase HPV vaccination among adolescents.

12:45 public comment

PLEASE extend the invite to as many doctors and medical professionals as you are able on a short notice. If too many people from the across the country call in randomly it may not leave much time for the medical profession to also speak against the pushing the HPV vaccine.
