Dr Joseph Mercola reports that decades of advocacy for vaccine-informed consent rights are paying off as there were 446 bills supported in US state legislatures and only 158 opposed in 2023.
Despite vetoes and other challenges, the year marked a high point for his group, the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), and its supported legislation, writes Mercola.
There’s a heightened level of legislative and public support for informed consent rights, he says.
Key legislative successes include the passing of 15 bills across eight states, prohibiting COVID-19 vaccine mandates or passports, and reinforcing parental consent.
Mercola writes that NVIC continues to advocate against vaccine mandates and for personal liberty, with notable resistance to mandates and minor consent without parental approval.
As a call to action, Mercola encourages engaging with local legislators to advocate for vaccine-informed consent rights.
