International Vaccine Injury Awareness Day
International Vaccine Injury Awareness Day is a day of joint support from people around the world for those whose lives have been significantly affected by vaccination. Some live under compulsory vaccine policy and others have voluntarily made the choice believing that vaccines are safe.
International Vaccine Injury Awareness Day is dedicated to all whose lives have been changed forever by vaccination side effects because their loved ones suffer with vaccine damage. It is dedicated to parents and extended families, the direct and indirect victims who bravely carry the burden of lifelong care, especially of injured children. It is dedicated to their personal courage and to the social deprivation and mistrust they experience from others on a regular basis.
In some countries there is no state care and support for these families, not even an organization to whom possible adverse reactions can be reported. In other countries compensation and assistance is available for victims of vaccination. Some countries pay out to only a few cases a year while the US has paid out $3 billion for vaccine injury in the last generation.
Parents and patients are under pressure from advertising campaigns claiming almost zero risk in vaccination. In the name of expertise they are ridiculing those who bear the consequences and ask questions. Media campaigns turn people with personal experience of injury, afraid of further consequences, into ‘enemies of society’, disrespecting them and contributing to the negative atmosphere.
On this day, may people light candles in public places, in memory and support of those who have lost part of their lives to vaccination. Let us light a candle in the hope that those deciding on national vaccination programs will truly address the effects of vaccination and not succumb to interest groups. Light a candle as a symbol of support for those whose lives have been heavily affected by side effects of vaccination. Light a candle to shed a little more light on those injured by vaccination. Light a candle for hope and compassion.

Light a Candle for the Vaccine-damaged
Join the event called Light a Candle for the Vaccine-damaged held on International Vaccine Injury Awareness Day.
People gather in public places, in streets, town squares or parks and light candles to remember the suffering or even death of vaccine-injured children and adults. This event brings to our attention that vaccination is not a harmless act and can have adverse effects, sometimes even very serious.
At a time when vaccination is mandatory in many countries throughout the world, it is even more important to inform people about the potential risks of vaccination.
Vaccine injury is often denied by the health authorities and state officials even though many medical experts all over the world warn about the risks. But the parents of vaccine-injured children know the truth.
The Light a Candle concept was started in the Czech Republic by parents Alice Pelikanova and Václav Hrabák who had experience of vaccine injury and the lack of support from the medical profession and the state. It has been adopted by Poland, Slovenia, England, Holland, with Italy and Austria already staging demonstrations.
