Can’t attend the hearing on the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program?
You are not alone! The program created by congress to “swiftly and generously” provide compensation to care for those individuals harmed by vaccines is badly broken. Vaccine safety advocates continue to expose malfeasance within the NVICP, and on December 2013 the Congressional Committee on Oversight and Government Reform will investigate this dysfunctional program. Sadly, most of us who live with vaccine injury can ill afford the time or expense of traveling to Washington, DC.
But you can still have a voice in this historic proceeding!
The Canary Party has provided two methods by which you can tell congress your story:
1. Complete a brief questionnaire
We have created a survey that can be completed within a few minutes. Answers will be tabulated to provide the OGR committee an overview of how the NVICP worked or did not work for families affected by vaccine injury and death. You will have the ability to provide short comments for some of the questions. Click HERE to access the survey.
2. Submit written testimony
Tell congress what happened to you or your loved one. In your own words, describe how vaccines caused damage or death. What was your child like before the vaccine(s)? What were your own beliefs about vaccines? Did your experience with the NVICP help you or your child in any way? Report how your journey with vaccine injury has brought you to where you are today. You can write a paragraph, a page, or more. Email your story to email@example.com.
Deadline for submissions is November 27th. Survey data and testimonials will be submitted to the OGR Committee for inclusion as hearing exhibits. All submissions MUST include your name, email address, state and zip code. We may contact you if clarification is needed, and will redact your personal data before submitting your testimony to congress, if you prefer.
Feel free to complete the survey AND submit your full story. Excerpts from both methods may be used in oral testimony provided to congress. Thank you!
