Making Informed Decisions - Vaccination Support Group

Informal monthly support meeting

Next meeting: unknown
Please check here for possible changes

October 2011

Dear Friends,

Many people (you may be one of them) have told us that the real value of our past monthly meetings was the strength and inspiration they experienced by just arriving and finding out that they were not alone - that the important questions they have been thinking about, have been, and continue to be, asked by others. Our team volunteers have been happy to host these meetings since the late 1990s, but unfortunately, our numbers, which have never been large, have continued to be thinned by the competing calls of parenthood, careers and other responsibilities. As a result, sustaining our in-person support meetings is no longer possible at this time. This is not to say that the meetings will not be resumed in some form. The NYVIC team is considering a number of options. We would very much like to continue helping you to sort through your vaccination-related questions.

Keep your fingers crossed and, if you have not already subscribed, sign up for our updates email list. Hopefully, next time you hear from us, we will have better news.

Please stay in touch. If you have suggestions or questions you can contact us here.
