Action Alert: STOP FL SB 1182!
Please contact Rep Thad Altman and ask him not to file his house bill that would require the Department of Education to distribute certain information relating to the human papillomavirus, the availability of the HPV vaccine, and the recommendation of the CDC to complete the HPV vaccination before age 12.
The bill was filed as a courtesy by Senator Gibson but she is not promoting this bill. You can see the text of SB 1182 here which is what Rep. Thad Altman will file. Please contact Representative Altman’s office and voice your opposition. Contact information here. You can use the talking points from below and add your concerns about HPV vaccinations. You can also email Rep. Altman’s aide, James Benfanis, at James.Befanis@myfloridahouse.gov.
CONCERNS/TALKING POINTS regarding Rep. Altman’s proposed HPV bill that has not been filed yet:
 A state recommendation implies an endorsement by the state. The state should not be endorsing this highly controversial HPV vaccine which has significant side effects that include death.
 The discussion and decisions regarding sexually transmitted diseases and children should take place between parents and healthcare providers and the state should not be endorsing this controversial HPV vaccine. The HPV vaccine is highly controversial. Using the MedAlerts search engine, as of May 31, 2017, there were a total of 57,520 vaccine reaction reports made to the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) associated with Gardasil vaccinations, including 271 deaths. HPV infection is experienced by the majority of sexually active women and men and is naturally cleared from the body within two years by more than 90 percent of those, who become infected. Antibodies to the HPV type, which caused the infection, remain in the body to help prevent future re-infection with that same HPV type. This lasting natural immunity does not occur with the HPV vaccine.
