Pharma Dogs Hunt Down Vaccine Disruptors in California

“Anti-Vaxxers Have Found a Way Around California’s Strict New Immunization Law. They Need to Be Stopped.” This hostile and derogatory headline was published in the Los Angeles Times November 8.1 The “loophole” they’re referring to is the use of medical vaccine exemptions written by physicians.

According to this editorial, no more than 3 percent of children “should reasonably” qualify for a medical exemption to avoid vaccination, yet parents of more than 10 percent of school-aged children enrolled at 58 California schools in the fall of 2016 had obtained a medical exemption written by a physician, allowing their children to attend school without every dose of every state-mandated vaccine.

“The new law — SB 2772 — pushed up the statewide immunization numbers to a safe level overall. But dozens of schools have reported suspiciously high numbers of medical exemptions that, if left unchecked, could endanger their communities,”the LA Times editorial board writes.

Medical Exemptions in California Have Tripled Since the Personal Belief Exemption Was Eliminated in 2015

On June 29, 2015, California enacted SB 277, which eliminated the legal right for parents to file a personal belief exemption to vaccination for religious and conscientious beliefs so their unvaccinated or partially vaccinated children can attend school. Now, school-aged children in California must get nearly three dozen doses of 10 federally recommended and state-mandated vaccines or forgo their right to be educated in a public or private school.

The alternative is for parents to homeschool their children — an option that is simply impossible for many single parents or families in which both parents work. The article goes on to state:

“[T]he numbers of medical exemptions statewide didn’t just rise after SB 277 took effect, they tripled, with a few schools reporting exemptions from as many as a quarter of their students. Given what health experts say about the expected rate of medical exemptions, that’s just not credible. Are there some physicians who are, for either ideological or financial reasons, helping parents avoid vaccinating their healthy kids?” 

California Doctors in the Crosshairs

The authors note there have been “examples of a few doctors’ offices that advertise medical exemption evaluations for a fee,” and that these doctors are providing medical exemptions for health conditions that are not included in the narrow list of contraindications to vaccination defined by federal health officials at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).3

By and large, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), which develops CDC vaccine policy guidelines, limits medical exemptions to severe allergic reactions to previous vaccinations and rare severe immunodeficiencies.

According to the LA Times, some children have received medical exemptions for autoimmune disorders, such as eczema, asthma and diabetes, which federal health officials do not consider a vaccine contraindication. Under current law school officials must accept a medical vaccine exemption form signed by a licensed physician.

“The only real enforcement mechanism against doctors circumventing the vaccination requirement is through the Medical Board of California,” the LA Times noted, meaning the only way under current law that the state can limit medical exemptions is for the state medical board to hunt down and punish doctors who think for themselves and stray beyond the CDC’s narrow contraindication guidelines if they believe a child’s health will be endangered by vaccination.

‘Why Informed Consent Matters’ plus other articles for Vaccine Awareness Week

In recognition of the 8th annual Vaccine Awareness Week, co-sponsored by the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) and Dr. Joseph Mercola, here are a few of the important articles that caught our attention in recent days:

Einstein risked arrest for this back in the 1930s, and I urge you to stand your ground against doctors and the government on this issue – it must remain a choice as there is a massive gap in scientific knowledge, and the risks are cataclysmic.

Update on the Orchestrated Attacks to Eliminate Vaccine Safety Exemptions

Original here: https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/11/05/attempts-to-eliminate-vaccine-exemptions.aspx


By Dr. Mercola

I’ve written many articles discussing vaccine safety and freedom of choice. The encouraging news is that while we’ve faced more than 180 legislative attempts in the states to add more vaccine mandates and restrict or eliminate vaccine choices in the U.S. in the past two years, we’ve successfully defeated all but a few. As noted by Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC):

“What we’ve seen in the last few years is a very orchestrated attack on vaccine laws that allow people to have choice …We’ve had some of the most restrictive and oppressive vaccine laws. We do have exemptions in the laws and that’s what they want to eliminate. They want to eliminate all choice.

We have organized, and — through the NVIC advocacy portal, which people can sign onto — we’ve kept people informed by monitoring all the bills in the States. We have been able to generate enough opposition to not lose, despite more than 180 bills this last legislative session trying to add more vaccine mandates, trying to monitor vaccine status of everyone, trying to restrict or eliminate exemptions — we defeated all of those bad vaccine bills.

The only bill that passed was a meningococcal vaccine mandate in Indiana for college students. This is an incredible accomplishment, but the heat is on. We’re going to see another mass attempt in 2018 to take away exemptions.”

Vaccine Safety and Freedom of Choice Have Become International Issues

Americans are no longer alone in our fight for medical freedom of choice, as the aggressive push for mandatory vaccinations has gone international. Part of the problem is that governments are making business deals with vaccine makers. The Gates Foundation is also very much involved in the global mass-vaccination agenda.

Australian parents now forfeit child care and nontaxable child benefit payments unless their children receive all government-mandated vaccines.1 As in California, they also cannot attend day care or preschool unless fully vaccinated.2

Is the Childhood Vaccine Schedule Safe?

By Barbara Loe Fisher

Is the childhood vaccine schedule safe? 1

In 1953, health officials at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control told doctors to give children 16 doses of four vaccines by age six. 2

In 1983, it was 23 doses of 7 vaccines by age six. 3

In 2013, it was 69 doses of 16 vaccines by age 18, with 50 doses given by age six. 4

With infants and children in America getting four times as many vaccinations as their grandparents got, how healthy are they?

Today, 1 child in 6 is learning disabled. 5 In 1976, it was 1 child in 30. 6

Today, 1 child in 9 has asthma. 7 In 1980, it was 1 child in 27.8 9

Today, 1 child in 50 develops autism. 10 In the 1990s, it was 1 child in 555. 11 12

Today, 1 child in 400 has diabetes. 13 In 2001, it was 1 child in 500 has diabetes. 14

On top of that, millions of children suffer with seizures, inflammatory bowel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid disease, multiple sclerosis, life-threatening allergies, anxiety, depression and behavior disorders. 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24

In 2013, a physician committee at the Institute of Medicine reported that there were fewer than 40 studies examining the safety of the government’s vaccine schedule for children under age six. 25

Only 40 studies.

Vaccine safety science has so many knowledge gaps 26 27 28 that the Institute of Medicine could not determine whether the timing and numbers of vaccinations given to babies and young children is or is not responsible for the development of learning disabilities – asthma – autoimmunity – autism – developmental and behavior disorders – seizures – and other kinds of brain and immune system problems. 29

An unprecedented number of children are born healthy, get vaccinated and are never healthy again. It is a public health crisis that cannot be ignored.

Before you take a risk, find out what it is.
