To consent to a vaccine, you must be informed – hence the term informed consent. Watch the videos below from leading-edge doctors, scientists, and educators, and become more informed.

Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that unites doctors, scientists, public health researchers, educators, and concerned citizens who are compelled to safeguard the medical ethic of informed consent. With a growing membership of doctors in nearly every medical discipline—including specializations in pediatrics, internal medicine, neurology, immunology, and infectious diseases—PIC is challenging outdated paradigms and changing the cultural perception of mandatory vaccination laws. Watch the educational videos below and find out what the vaccine controversy is all about.
