If you have been or are being harassed because of your decision to not use or delay vaccines, know that you have rights.
Please fill out a vaccine harassment feedback form and consider filing a report with the Vermont Board of Medical Practice (form: http://healthvermont.gov/hc/med_board/documents/ComplaintForm.pdf).
First of all, there are exemptions available for vaccine mandates. So if a health provider or school nurse tells you that a vaccine is MANDATORY or that your child can’t go to school unless they are fully vaccinated, they are not telling you the truth – there are legal exemptions to vaccination.
Secondly, if anyone tells you that you are abusing your child or if they threaten to call chid welfare services/department of children and families, or actually files a false report, know that you have the legal right to refuse a vaccine and refusing to consent to a vaccine by itself in Vermont is not considered abuse. You have rights and remedies under the law.
