Did you know that in 2016 your parental right to medical decision making will be restricted by the State? Passed in 2015, Act 37  removes a parent’s right to have a “philosophical conviction” opposing state-mandated child vaccination, effective July 2016.

For now, the law keeps a “religious exemption” intact. However, a bill has already been introduced to do away with all non-medical exemptions in VT (see: H.212). Lobbyists say that this bill to remove the religious exemption will not be touched during an election year. Are you willing to wait and see?

Act 37 was not fully vetted by lawmakers because it was the result of a “sneak amendment” orchestrated by the American Academy of Pediatrics and pharmaceutical interests. In just one month, the industry managed to attach major vaccine policy changes to another bill that had already passed the house and even switched committees in the process. The new law was signed by the Governor Peter Shumlin on May 28, 2015 and includes a report to be made to the legislature on feasibility of mandatory vaccination for school staff. Teachers, administrators and janitors take note: H266, a bill to require mandatory vaccination for school teachers and administrators, has already been introduced.

There are many elements to the new mandatory vaccine law (Act 37),  effective July 2016. Click here for a detailed overview.

Also, “rulemaking” is going on now at the Health Department and there is a public comment period open through Dec. 2nd. Click here for a detailed overview of the proposed rule that is supposed to implement the new law. File a comment, here.

Citizens have been told by David Englander, Attorney for the DOH that, “Shortly after the conclusion of the public comment period the Department will file the final proposed rule, including any revisions based on public comment and a response to all issues raised during the public comment period, with the Secretary of State’s Office (SOS) and the Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules (LCAR). Members of the public can testify in favor of or against the rule when LCAR meets to consider the rule. For information about the day and time this rule will be considered at LCAR and how to testify at LCAR contact Katie Pickens at [email protected] or (802) 828-5760.”
File a comment, here.

It is critical that your elected lawmakers hear from families and schools that will be impacted by the new law, because they have been told there will be no fiscal/economic impact. Lawmakers need to know that there is indeed an impact on families schools – and this is our chance to speak up.

Proposed Rules Call for:

– 7 vaccines – 5 shots – by age 2 months
– 14 vaccines – 10 shots – by age 4 months
– 21 vaccines – 15 shots – by age 6 to 14 months
– 25 vaccines – 17 shots – by age 15 to 18 months
– 28 vaccines – 18 shots – by age 18 months

– Plus:
—Penalties for school administrators and childcare providers who do not enforce compliance.
— Includes All schools – including independent schools and colleges, for just one class enrolled (so may affect homeschoolers).

– The State spent $16,424,373 on vaccines in FY2015. It is one thing to be forced to pay for vaccines – quite another to be forced to take themhttp://www.vtvaccine.org/vtvaccine.nsf/documents/VVPPFinalAssessmentCalculationWorksheet2015.html/$File/2014-10-15%20VVPP%20budget%20and%20assessment%20worksheets%20%28VVPP2015%29%20v6.pdf-
 
– New law proposed to require mandatory vaccination for teachers, too! See H266: http://www.voicesforchoice.com/#!teachers/c20x3

The following persons in VT will be affected by Act 37 :Screen shot 2015-11-25 at 12.15.10 PM

  • parents.
  • children enrolled in a child care facility or pre-kindergarten.
  • students enrolled in kindergarten. elementary school, secondary school.
  • students in post-secondary school.
  • health care providers.
  • child care and school administrators.

Act 37  is 19 pages long and has several components you must know about:

  • Requires reports to the Dept. of Health when a person has reason to believe another person is sick – shall tattle within 24 hours (see section 2 on 18 VSA sec 1001).
  • Requires all schools to make publicly available aggregate vaccination rates of the student body to all parents and students (see section 3 which amends 18 VSA sec 1121).
  • Removes the right of parents and/or students to hold philosophical beliefs in opposition to the State’s universal list of mandatory vaccinations listed as required for daycare, pre-K, K, and all schools (public, private, independent, primary, secondary, post-secondary) (see section 4 which amends 18 VSA sec 1122).
  • Requires the Dept. of Health to adopt rules together with the Agency of Education and Dept. of Children and Families that shall LIST which vaccine doses will be required for Vermont schools (see section 5 which amends 18 VSA sec 1123).
  • Collection and reporting of data on chid vaccination status in 1st and 8th grades (see section 6 which amends 18 VSA sec 1124).
  • Grant the Dept. of Health the power to implement “quality improvement intitiatives” at any school that has a vaccination rate below “the average” (see section 7 which adds 18 VSA sec 1125).
  • Requires the participation of all Vermont residents in a Mandatory vaccination registry (adults and children) with no opt-out or penalty for violation of privacy and allowance for any researcher with IRB approval to have access to these records (see section 8 which amends 18 VSA sec 1129).
  • Establishes an advisory council on vaccination practice – there is no public membership or dissenting member (see section 9 which adds 18 VSA sec 1131).
  • Makes VAERS reporting mandatory for all healthcare providers (see section 10 which adds 18 VSA sec 1132).
  • Sets up a committee to look at the legality of making mandatory vaccinations required for all school administrators, faculty and personnel (see section 11).
  • Effective: July 2015 except sections 4 and 6 (see section 12).

The Dept. of Health has begun to set forth how they envision this law to be enforced. Their draft proposal includes an intensive and complicated vaccine schedule which mandates all CDC recommended vaccines within 2 years of recommendation and imposes penalties on daycare and school administrators who do not exclude children if these children are not in compliance with a new law.  You can read their draft proposal, which is incomplete, here.

This update is by no means an exhaustive analysis of the new law or the rules being proposed. Please read the new law for yourself and if you have comments or concerns about Act 37 or how it is being implemented, please send them ASAP to:

Free and informed health choices. No Coercion.

This year, parents plan to continue to file philosophical vaccine exemption forms to modify or say no to VT’s now mandatory (unless religious) school vaccine schedule.

Note: Parents are reporting difficulty in obtaining vaccine exemptions from doctors. Are you having the same problems? Please, contact us HERE.

Thank you for visiting. We believe that vaccine choice is a human right, and that parents should be provided with fair and accurate information about the medical products that their children are prescribed – most especially, vaccines.

>Vaccine Choice FAQs.

>Look up Vaccine Ingredients here.

Did you know?

> In 2007, there was a bill introduced to mandate HPV vaccination in Vermont.

> Until 2012, Vermont respected differing preventative health philosophies when it came to vaccines. The form was relatively easy to fill out. In 2012 there was a failed attempt to remove Vermont’s Philosophical Vaccine Exemption but the form was changed and heavy tracking of those refusing any state-mandated vaccine, was placed upon schools. (link to VTDigger/Vermontbiz)

>In 2015, several bills were introduced to remove exemption rights and to enhance tracking of those refusing any state-mandated vaccine. A last-minute amendment was jammed onto another bill a month before end of session, and in just 29 days, with only very limited testimony taken, Vermont’s philosophical exemption was repealed.  Many parents protested and continue to work to reverse this decision. Please get involved today.

May 13, 2015

Thank you so much to the 300+ individuals who showed up last night to stand up for our rights. Sadly, the Vermont House of Representatives voted today to repeal our philosophical exemption (H98).

The amendment that we had agreed to support was valiantly drafted and explained by Rep. Donahue. It was also supported by many Reps. on the floor, but lost by a hairline margin of 73-71.

After the amendment failed, Representatives Till, Dakin, Poirier, Pearson, Bankroft and Briglin ponied in a 85-57 vote to repeal Vermont’s philosophical vaccine exemption. All in all, our House Representatives were worn out, tired, and eager to go home. Many questioned why so much time was spent on this topic so late in the session, and wondered if we should delay consideration until January, 2016.

The exact language of what passed the house, and the official roll call are not yet publicly available. The House version that passed today slightly expanded the medical exemption, delayed implementation of repeal until July 2016, and included a study group to explore how to implement mandatory vaccination of school staff. It will head to the Senate (probably Thursday) for a vote of concurrence.

WHAT YOU CAN DO.

  1. The Governor may wish to hear from you about how this decision will impact your family and your children, your schools and your communities. Telephone him Weds-Fri,8-5 pm, at (802) 828 3333– [email protected].
  2. Find your Senator(s) hereand call them Weds-Fri, 8-5 pm at (802) 828 2228, to ask for support in preserving your right to say no to big pharma. http://legislature.vermont.gov/bill/QuickSearch/2016?SearchBy=Name&SearchBills=&SearchLegislators=&SearchCommittees=
  3. Touch base with your representative(s) to discuss how they voted and why. Thank your representatives is they voted to preserve the exemption. The many Reps. who voted “anti-choice” are glad that “this Thing” is finally just going to go away. Do you think that they are correct in this assessment? Be polite and kind…

If you support choice, and oppose mandatory vaccination,

CALL your Representatives at home Sat+Sun

  • Find your representative contact information HERE.
  • Come to the State House on Monday for the public hearing.

 

Support health choice when it comes to drugs for your children – Preserve the right to “exemption” from mandatory vaccination. Call your representatives NOW.

We are not advocating for “no vaccinations” – we are advocating for the program to remain voluntary, with philosophical exemptions.

The debate about compulsory vaccination is fundamentally one of individual control over one’s own body versus perceptions of public safety.  “When personal liberty is restricted to protect public health, the measures applied must be effective, the least restrictive (i.e. least liberty-infringing), proportional to the risk, equitable and non-discriminatory, minimally burdensome and in line with due process. Those whose liberty is violated should, when appropriate, be compensated, particularly if they experience vaccine-associated side-effects. In addition, individual rights should be restricted only with utmost respect for the dignity of persons.” http://www.who.int/bulletin/volumes/91/4/12-113480/en/

This issue demands an examination from multiple perspectives: human rights, corporate influence, constitutional law, education policy as well as public health. Each of these issues deserves a thorough examination by our Legislature, not a repeat of what occurred in the Senate. The families who will be most effected by this decision deserve a public hearing and the ability to testify in committee. Health, Education and Judiciary Committees should all hear of the impact of such draconian legislation.

Please urge your House representative to vote no on H98.

These are some of the open questions:

  • What vaccines are next to be mandated? (Vermont purchased $2.5 million of HPV vaccines, plus many others not “required” this year. For list of the required vaccines – click here. For list of the purchased vaccines – click here.
  • Why are vaccine reactions routinely ignored and why do they go unreported?
  • Why are public record requests to the Vermont Department of Health to release immunization rates for the current school year (2014-2015) still pending?
  • Why does the vaccination rate target continue to rise every few years? There was no “golden age” from which we are falling (click here to see more). Immunization rate goals are now near 100%, but pharma should never be forced just to meet changing “goals”.
  • We all want healthy and safe children. Recently vaccinated people can pose a risk due to viral shedding – why are they not kept away from school during the shedding period? Waning vaccine-induced immunity has been shown to be the major culprit in whooping cough and maybe even measles outbreaks, why do we not perform titer testing to see who is immune as an alternative?
  • Why not support the right of parent to make choice, especially when there is no liability for these vaccine products?
  • The Senate has not addressed issues of fundamental fairness. For example, a vaccinated child who is already infected with Hepatitis-B would be allowed in school, while a healthy child not vaccinated for Hepatitis-B would be excluded. A child presumably too sick to attend school will be allowed to attend, while a healthy, partially vaccinated or untreated child will be excluded from any child care or even private school school if the bill passes? Immune-compromised children already have special accommodation in the case they cannot attend school; are they really safe going into large crowds?

The education of present and future school children hangs in the balance.

Choice or Responsibility?

4/2/2015 UPDATE: the following was written by an attendee who wishes to remain anonymous: (link)

Tuesday, March 31, 2015 – UVM – Med Ed 200 @noon – Event Info

What sort of debate is a non-debate?

Two very pro-mandatory vaccine supporters in one room lecturing med students… where is the debate going to happen? On the picket line in the parking lot?

Bob Macauley: “I believe that parents should be free to decide” (but) “objecting parents” should “not be able to imperil other children” by  “sending their unimmunized children to school.”

Rebecca Bell: “The good news is that vaccines have been widely studied and we have lots of data showing they are safe and effective. The bad news is that there is a lot of scary and inaccurate information about vaccines on the internet. With this kind of misinformation out there, how do parents find answers to their questions?”

Are medical ethics changing in Vermont?

Moral coercion should not be used to gain compliance in what should be a voluntary medical procedure. Vaccines should be a personal choice. Vermont law,  thankfully guarantees that personal choice. Respect for autonomy is the basis for informed consent. By judging morals, you intrude upon the patient autonomy and the private medical decisions of individuals and parents on what happens to their bodies or their children.

Proponents assert that children who are unvaccinated “not only put themselves at risk for vaccine-preventable diseases but they increase the risk to others.”

…however, if you believe vaccination will prevent disease, and you have your child vaccinated, then according to your belief your child has nothing to worry about. And the immunocompromised should be aware that vaccinated people can carry and transmit whooping cough, live influenza vaccine virus, live measles virus, live mumps virus, live rubella virus, live oral polio vaccine, live oral rotavirus vaccine…; unvaccinated people who did not intentionally infect themselves are far less a health risk to those with immune systems that are not functioning.

Spotlight on measles 2010: Excretion of vaccine strain measles virus in urine and pharyngeal secretions of a child with vaccine associated febrile rash illness, Croatia, March 2010

“We describe excretion of measles vaccine strain Schwarz in a child who developed a febrile rash illness eight days after primary immunisation against measles, mumps and rubella. Throat swabs and urine specimens were collected on the fifth and sixth day of illness, respectively. Genotyping demonstrated measles vaccine strain Schwarz (genotype A). If measles and rubella were not under enhanced surveillance in Croatia, the case would have been either misreported as rubella or not recognised at all.”

Protect your right to informed medical decision making.

Central to the right of informed consent is the right to decline consent. In practicality with current vaccination laws, this translates into the right to exercise vaccine exemptions when state laws call for mandatory vaccines. Vermont law grants parents the right to exercise both religious and philosophical objections.

We are the individual human Voices for Vaccine Choice in Vermont. We are active community members and a vital part of the Vermont economy – the young families and future of vermont.

We are not “anti-vaxxers.”

There is no “Anti-Vaccination Movement” (read more). However, despite S199/Act 157 (2012), vaccine risk information offered to Vermont parents continues to be truncated and downplayed. When parents have questions and concerns about the health effects of vaccines, they are uniformly told: “the benefits far outweigh the risks”.  However, vaccines can and do cause unexpected side effects.

Do Vaccines Promote Health?

Public health officials aggressively market “routine” baby vaccines and insist they are safe and effective. However, an alarming “new normal” of chronic illness has more and more parents choosing to opt out of some – or all – of the many vaccines purchased and mandated for their children by the state. Bearing witness to the staggering rise in cases of children with allergies, asthma, eczema, ADHD, autism and other chronic autoimmune and neurological disorders, parents are asking: Do vaccines really promote long-term health?

We seek to protect informed consent by providing educational forums and by sharing published, peer-reviewed scientific information and news about the health effects and health outcomes of vaccination. Today’s doctors are not trained to recognize vaccine reactions; children and families suffer as a result.
