US Vaccine Exemptions Remain Secure in 2018

Leave a comment

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  • In Minnesota, two bills that tried to eliminate conscientious vaccine exemptions (SF 3977 and HF 4406) failed to secure even a single hearing.
  • The same thing happened in Oklahoma, where a bill (SB 1123) that would have eliminated all exemptions to vaccination except for limited medical reasons, along with a resolution (SJR 57), which would have placed the elimination of all non-medical exemptions on the next general election ballot, were both rejected.   
  • Minnesota HF 96 and SF 143 would have required parents to get a physician to sign off on the conscientious belief exemption and would have replaced the language “conscientious belief” with “personal belief,” but both of these bills died.
  • Government health officials do not like vaccine exemption language that includes the words “religious” or “conscientious” because freedom of religion and freedom of conscience are defined as human rights.

NVIC’s 2018 Annual Report on U.S. State Vaccine Legislation: Breakdown, Trends and Predictions

By NVIC Advocacy Team and Dr. Joseph Mercola at Mercola.com

Protection of the human right to exercise informed consent to vaccination continues to be a topic that is of great concern for many people in America. In a 2018 Annual Report on U.S. State Vaccine Legislation, the non-profit charity National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) reports that during this year’s legislative session, no state eliminated or restricted existing medical, religious and conscientious or philosophical exemptions for daycare or school attendance.

This is the third year in a row that state legislatures have rejected the efforts of vaccine industry lobbyists to persuade more state governments to do what California did in 2015 and eliminate the legal right of citizens to exercise freedom of thought, conscience and informed consent when making vaccine decisions for themselves and their children.

Working to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education since 1982, NVIC is the largest and oldest U.S. charity disseminating information about diseases, vaccines and informed consent to vaccination. NVIC provides well-referenced, accurate information to the public about vaccination and health but does not make vaccine use recommendations. In 2010, NVIC launched the NVIC Advocacy Portal (NVICAP), a free online vaccine choice advocacy network, for the purpose of securing and defending informed consent protections in state vaccine policies and laws.

Protect Your Right to Use the MN Vaccine Conscientiously Held Belief Exemption Without Obstructions!

The issue about whether vaccine science is safe and effective is a secondary issue.

The primary issue is about who makes vaccines and why they really want to force us to inject their vaccines in our bodies. That is something you need to know before the vaccine compliance SWAT team knocks on your door. Dees_Vaccines

S.F. 380/H.F. 393 are bills attempting to impose barriers on parents before they exercise their fundamental right to decline vaccines under MN’s legal exemptions!

Minnesota S.F. 380/H.F. 393 seeks to make opting out of childhood vaccinations more difficult for MN parents. Under current law, parents can opt children out of vaccination for medical reasons if approved by doctors, or because they hold conscientiously held beliefs if they present notarized forms to their schools. But, SF 380/HF 393 would require those parents to first talk to a Physician and obtain a statement from the physician verifying that the physician has reviewed with the parent information about the risks and benefits of the vaccines that is consistent with information published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.(emphasis, mine.  This is the last place I would go for relevant information on vaccines.)

Please help stop this attempt to set up hurdles for parents before they exercise their fundamental rights to direct the health choices and wellness path of their children.
