The mission of Physicians for Informed Consent is to unite doctors for informed consent in vaccination, and educate the public on infectious disease, the immune system, and informed consent.
Our vision is to live in a society free of mandatory vaccination laws. And to live in a society knowledgeable about infectious disease, the immune system, and informed consent.
This organization is dedicated to all the parents and legal guardians in California who lost their parental rights on June 30, 2015, when SB277 was signed into law and removed the personal belief and religious exemptions to childhood vaccination for both private and public school attendances.
Our Founder's Story
On June 30, 2015, Dr. Shira Miller felt personally assaulted when California SB277 was signed into law. The law phased out personal belief and religious exemptions to vaccination for both private and public school attendance, and since Dr. Miller does not follow the SB277 list of mandatory vaccines for her children…she was devastated. While she was busy taking care of her patients and raising her young children, legislators voted away her fundamental rights–an act which shouldn’t be possible in this day and age. Dr. Miller doesn’t think she or any other parent should ever be bullied or coerced to vaccinate (medicate) their children against their better judgement. So, she called upon a team of physicians, scientists, and attorneys, and Physicians for Informed Consent was born.
