About the Australian Vaccination-risks Network (AVN)

In 1994, amidst concerns about the emphasis on vaccination benefits while downplaying risks, the AVN was formed as a volunteer-run community organisation. Our objectives include:

Promoting Informed Discussion

Facilitating conversations based on medically-referenced information about vaccine safety and effectiveness.

Opposing Compulsory Vaccination

Advocating to ensure that vaccinations are never made compulsory for Australian children.

Supporting Freedom of Choice

Providing support for those choosing not to vaccinate or opting for selective vaccination.

A Volunteer-Driven Community

The AVN, an incorporated association since November 1994, was initiated by concerned parents and health professionals who perceived a lack of scientifically-based information regarding the ‘other side’ of the vaccination issue

From our inception, the AVN operated as a volunteer-run organisation, funded solely by membership fees and sales of books, videos, and DVDs in our webshop.

The AVN is a supportive organisation that respects a broad range of opinions – and we’re not alone!
