School Immunization

Key points

  1. Informed consent should be foundational in the states school immunization program. The legal right to be fully and accurately informed about the benefits and risks, and the right to choose for oneself and minor child. The state should not implement a one size fits all mandatory schedule. The parents should decide what vaccines their child receives or does not receive.
  2.  The right to a medical exemption should be protected. These are hard to come by because medical doctors fear reprisal from the states regulatory bodies. The medical exemption should be strengthened to account for bioindividualism. Not everyone is biologically the same nor do they tolerate pharmaceuticals the same. 
  3. The state absolutely should not mandate vaccines for children taught at home. This is a major over reach of the states authority.  This in an of itself shows these laws aren't about safety of others. It's about commerce. 
  4.  The covid 19 vaccine should never never never be mandated as part of the monorail child's school requirement.  The evidence is now ample to indicate heart inflammation side effects among others that lead to death. This vaccine does not even stop the transmission of covid. This should remain voluntary. 
  5. 5. Where there is risk with medical therapies and pharmaceuticals there should always be choice.
