If Covid taught us anything, it should be that people have an inherent right to medical freedom, and the parents of school children should be the ONLY people making these decisions for them. The Commonwealth should not MANDATE medical treatments (including vaccines) for children, whether they attend public school or are homeschooled. IMMUNIZATIONS SHOULD ALWAYS BE OPTIONAL -- opt-in, not opt-out. NO MANDATES FOR ANY MEDICAL TREATMENTS, EVER.
Recently, we have all read about how pharmaceutical companies are withholding study results for Covid vaccines. This should alarm you! If it doesn't, you are NOT paying attention, and you are blindly trusting those with financial interest to make decisions for you and your children.
While I believe NO CHILDREN should be forced to get vaccines to attend public school, homeschooled children should definitely NOT be held to any mandates.
Recently, we have all heard that Covid vaccines do not stop infection or spread of infection. For this reason alone, we should not mandate Covid vaccines or add it to the vaccine schedule. Any one who wants this for their children can voluntarily opt-in.
