The American Association for Health Freedom (AAHF) believes that the right of the consumer to choose and the practitioner to practice relates to all health care choices, including vaccination. AAHF is an advocate for opt-in (as opposed to mandatory) policies for vaccines, particularly the HPV vaccine.
As the news article below details, Gardasil, the vaccine created and marketed by Merck, is causing one death per month and numerous, serious reactions according to a recent FDA report.

Unfortunately, many states rushed to add Gardasil to the ever-growing list of mandatory vaccines last year. Almost every state introduced legislation in 2007 regarding the HPV vaccine. Our 2007 Government Affairs Annual Report addresses this topic under a special section entitled “Hot Issue”. (Note to members, you will be emailed your copy of the report this week!)
Our CAM-V initiative (Campaign Against Mandatory Vaccinations) is headed by renowned vaccination expert, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny and is lead by our state chapters.
