Vaccine Choice Advocacy

In order to protect vaccine choice in Michigan—as well as nationwide—we must be willing to educate the public, our family and friends, and our legislators. Here are some simple steps anyone can take:

Write Your Legislators

While a handwritten letter is best, an email is still a good option when time and resources are limited. Let your State Rep and State Senator know why vaccine choice matters to you. 

Find My Legislator

Build Your Own Advocacy Folder

Print off these documents to study and use as talking points. You can also share them with your legislators, school administrators, health care providers, family and friends.

Go to MVC Handouts and Materials

Attend Legislative Coffee Hours

You're invited to meet with legislators each month right in your own community. It's a great way to get to know your legislator and like-minded citizens, while sharing the importance of vaccine choice. When you join MVC, we'll pair you with a legislative liaison in your district.

Improve Public Access to Information

Verify that your local library carries DVDs, books, and other educational materials that inform readers about potential vaccine risks.

Find a Library or Request Materials

All Hands on Deck

Base your level of involvement on your availability, not experience. We can even connect you with an experienced vaccine choice advocate for more guidance. 

1-2 hours a month to spare

We get it. You have a demanding job, either at home or in the office. For many, you have both. Rest assured there are things you can do to help secure vaccine choice in Michigan.

  • Write your legislators at least one time a year

  • Be prepared to call or write your legislator when an immediate response is needed; this happens about 2-3 times per year

no time to spare

At minimum, we ask that all MVC members:

5-10 hours a month to spare

This works out to about 1-2 hours each week, and is the level at which our most active users contribute their time and advocacy efforts.

  • Be prepared to call or write your legislator when an immediate response is needed; this happens about 2-3 times per year

  • Monitor and share vaccine-choice legislation

  • Build relationships with your legislator(s) by attending their coffee hours to educate them about the importance of vaccine choice as often as necessary

  • Volunteer to educate other MVC Community Members or do community outreach

Guides To Help You Better Advocate

NVIC Vaccine Law Reform Guide (pdf)

Prepared by the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), explains how informed consent and precautionary principles together serve as an ethical foundation for protecting consumer rights and ensuring patient safety.
