The Greater Good is a film purportedly discussing the risks and benefits of vaccines. It originally debuted at the Dallas International Film Festival on April 2, 2011, and which then began playing in Los Angeles, California on October 14, 2011, which won awards from the Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival as well as the cinematic vision award at the Amsterdam Film Festival. The film has been described as "pure, unadulterated anti-vaccine propaganda". Stories covered in the film include those of: Gabi Swank of Wichita, Kansas, who received an HPV vaccine and attributes a number of adverse reactions, including a seizure, to this experience, Jordan King of Portland, Oregon, who was claimed to have regressed into autism following routine vaccination, and was one of the test cases for the autism omnibus proceedings and whose case was rejected by the Special Master, and Victoria Grace Boyd Christener of Tulsa, Oklahoma, who died at the age of 5 months after receiving a vaccine. Well-known vaccine experts who appear in the film include Paul Offit, Melinda Wharton, and Norman Baylor of the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research. The film was endorsed by Joseph Mercola on his website, as part of "Vaccine Awareness Week", a joint venture with anti-vaccine propaganda organisation the National Vaccine Information Center. The filmmakers, Kendall Nelson and Chris Pilaro, are from Sun Valley, Idaho.
