When my daughter was just 12 months, she experienced a potentially fatal reaction to a tiny amount of peanut butter, a drop that barely covered 1/4 of a dime. After the emergency was handled and things calmed down a bit, I began inspecting everything that was going into her body - and I didn't like what I was finding. I began paying careful attention to food ingredients, scrutinizing labels to keep what we were feeding her simple, safe, healthy and pure.
Not long after the peanut reaction, at a well-visit the doctor recommended 3 or 4 vaccines. Just like I had been doing with food, I began wondering: what is actually being put into my daughter's body? What are the ingredients in the vaccines and what are the risks for my daughter? And when she receives multiple shots, what is the cumulative total of all ingredients from all those shots? Is it safe? How can we know? Are there well-tested safety standards that we can rely on?
I began manually adding up ingredients from package inserts and it was just totally overwhelming to keep all the details straight - let alone research each individual ingredient (not to mention wondering about possible synergistic toxicity from combining so many chemicals and biologicals.) That's when I began to write a simple tool to help make the calculations.
When I told friends, family and colleagues about what I was doing, I was surprised by how many others were interested in using it, too. So I switched gears and built what eventually became the Vaccine Ingredients Calculator.
The Vaccine Ingredients Calculator (VaxCalc™) was originally launched on November 13, 2009. Since then, hundreds of thousands of families from around the world have used it as part of their informed vaccination decision-making research.
People from 198 countries around the world have used the Vaccine Ingredients Calculator as a fundamental part of their research to make the best decisions for themselves and their families, including the Top 15 countries:
|1. United States|
|3. United Kingdom|
|6. New Zealand|
|12. South Africa|

The Center for Informed Consent Technology has become a proud, Supporting Member of the Coalition For Informed Consent, the global effort to protect informed consent in vaccination.
December 22, 2017
After more than 10 years volunteering in support of the National Vaccine Information Center, I've launched The Center for Informed Consent Technology to support our common right to informed consent. Today, most technology is used to monitor you, collect and sell your data, and enforce compliance. Our goal is to turn that around by creating technology that supports your right to informed consent in vaccination: your right to choose ALL, SOME or NO vaccines.
Informed consent is globally recognized as a human right and with regards to vaccination it means that every individual has the right to understand the risks associated with vaccines when considering vaccination and to make a voluntary decision.
Under the informed consent ethic, decisions made are not subject to coercion, harassment, or sanction. Parents have historically made medical risk-taking decisions for their children.
Dedicated to the memory of Michael Schrimshaw, 1/24/75 - 6/14/13.
