Reveals the truth behind the controversial issue of vaccine-related injuries.

Proponents declare that vaccines have saved millions of lives. Critics claim that the success is overstated and that vaccines may even be dangerous. Many consider mandatory vaccinations a violation of individual rights or religious principles. Many in public health argue that vaccine mandates are critical and justified and that antivaccination sentiment has resulted in outbreaks of preventable childhood illnesses. Vaccine critics point to mainstream medicine’s denial of and underreporting of vaccine injury.

Vaccine injuries have happened in the past and continue to happen today, and neither the mainstream medical establishment nor the government has ever fully and transparently addressed the issue of vaccine injury. In the 1980s, the United States addressed individual cases of vaccine injury by establishing the NVICP—the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program—a controversial Department of Health and Human Services program. The NVICP was intended to be “non-adversarial, compassionate, and generous” to vaccine-injury victims. However, many vaccine-injury victims and safety advocates believe that the program is not functioning as intended. There are also concerns that the program is keeping the reality of vaccine injury from public inspection.

Vaccine Injuries, a groundbreaking book in the field, reveals cases of vaccine injury from the NVICP—something that has never been offered to the public—and lets readers asses vaccine injuries for themselves.

About the author

Louis Conte is a law enforcement officer and independent investigator with the Westchester County Department of Probation. As a leading advocate for people with autism, he has championed their cause across the country. He was the lead investigator for and coauthor of a seminal paper on the autism-vaccine controversy, “Unanswered Questions from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program” in the Pace Environmental Law Review, which found that the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program compensated many children with autism for vaccine-induced brain damage while declaring no link between vaccines and autism. Conte lives in Pleasantville, New York, with his wife, Andrea, and their three sons, Thomas, Sam, and Louie.

Tony Lyons is the president and publisher of Skyhorse Publishing. He is the author of The Little Red Book of Dad’s Wisdom and Cutting-Edge Therapies for Autism.

“The authors begin with a truly masterful presentation of the fascinating history of vaccination, its successes and tragedies, followed by the government’s own account of where we stand now in terms of actual court cases involving adverse reactions. Every parent with young children, and parent-to-be, should read it.” —David L. Lewis, PhD, former senior-level research microbiologist, EPA office of research & development

“Conte and Lyons bring much-needed daylight to the dysfunctional NVICP and the secretive vaccine injury court. Never intended to be adversarial, the court is completely adversarial with the Department of Justice representing the Department of Health and Human Services against children and their families. Furthermore, HHS licenses technology directly to vaccine manufacturers and therefore has a financial stake in vaccine sales—unclean hands at work. The CDC is mandated to promote vaccine utilization, but has somehow been left in charge of evaluating safety, so this whole process needs far more transparency than has been afforded to it. Conte and Lyons have begun a much-needed airing of this dirty laundry.” —K Paul Stoller, MD, FACHM, president, International Hyperbaric Medical Association

Vaccine Injuries is essential reading for those curious about vaccine injury. Conte and Lyon’s highly readable account describes critical episodes in vaccine history and then provides annotated summaries of injury cases that the US government compensated in 2013. These lightly annotated injury cases tell a devastating tale—that US vaccines, far from being only ‘safe and effective,’ have indisputably caused chronic fatigue syndrome, brain damage, seizures, paralysis, anaphylaxis, multiple sclerosis, and death. The authors have done an important public service: they have revealed the truth.” —Mary Holland, research scholar, New York University School of Law
