Voices of Vaccine Injured, Advocates, Doctors & Scientists Included in Film

THE GREATER GOOD movie features the perspectives of families with children, who have been injured or died from childhood vaccinations, along with pro-informed consent advocates, including Barbara Loe Fisher; pediatricians Lawrence Palevsky, M.D. and Bob Sears, M.D.; Stephanie Christner, D.O., whose infant daughter died after a series of vaccinations in Oklahoma; Gabi Swank, who suffered a severe reaction to a series of Gardasil shots in Kansas; and the King family in Oregon, whose now-teenage son suffered regressive autism after childhood vaccinations.

Vaccine researchers, including Chris Shaw, Ph.D. and Diane Harper, M.D., PhD, discuss gaps in the vaccine safety science. The film also includes the perspectives of prominent pro-mandatory vaccination proponents, who are associated with vaccine manufacturers, the American Academy of Pediatrics and federal health agencies.

Film's LA Premiere Last Week:"What is Being Said is Staggering"

THE GREATER GOOD was first shown at the Dallas Film Festival last spring and, since then, has received the Amsterdam Cinematic Vision Award and the Sidewalk Moving Picture Film Festival Koroni Award from the School of Public Health at the University of Alabama.

At the LA premiere last week, a reviewer in the LA Weekly said, "What's being said is staggering, especially if you don't know much about the science and politics behind vaccines" and a reviewer for the Los Angeles Times commented,"Deftly examined ... provocative... film is an effective eye-opener."

Film's NYC Premiere in November

THE GREATER GOOD film is part of the November 2011 New York's Documentary Festival. There will be a special screening of the film co-sponsored by NVIC at the International Film Center on Nov. 18 at 8 p.m. (check NVIC's Facebook page for more details closer to the event).
