Tell Us Your Vaccination Story
Dr. Margo Roman has written this to fellow vets: “There is a change that is occurring and we need to have our clients at our backs and start to help us, be our voice. Many of them can write well and they can tell their stories and those stories need to be sent to the Veterinary boards and State Associations. Let the consumer drive the market.”
If your dog or cat has experienced a health or behavioral problem that you may think is linked to vaccination, please make sure it has been reported to the vaccine maker and the USDA. You do not need proof positive to report it — just a good faith belief that the vaccine is linked to the problem. Do not presume that your vet reported it. Underreporting is common.

In addition, please tell the world your story. Post a comment after a relevant article or send your story to us with pictures. We will post it on this website. Write the story, or better yet, make a short video.
- Send us a photo(3) and/or video of your dog or cat. If you have any showing the illness, please send that as well.
- Tell us what happened
- Was your pet ill before being vaccinated, or healthy?
- Send documentation if you have some — biopsies, letters, etc., even copies of vet bills
- Give us your express permission to post the story and photos/videos
- Keep it relatively short; we all have short attention spans
- Express your feelings
- Don’t slander your vet or anyone else. Use “Dr. Sam” or “Clinic X”.
- Keep it factual
- Did treatment resolve the problem?
- If you would like to be added as a supporter of this movement, please give us your permission to use your name
Here are some examples: Vaccine Stories
If writing isn’t your thing, do the best you can and we’ll spiff it up but won’t change any facts. We’ll send it back to you for approval before posting.
Thanks for taking the time to help your fellow dog and cat lovers avoid what you’ve been through.
