Washington State takes the next step towards socialism; Parents now have to get a doctors signature for vaccine exemption
I am a good parent. I care about my children and their health. It is MY decision whether to vaccinate them, with the understanding that if an
epidemic were to break out that they were not 'protected' against, they could be kept from school to prevent spreading it. Understood.
What I DO NOT understand, is how my State politicians think it is their right to tell me that I can not make that decision on my own. As of July of of
this year, it is going to be required that all exemption forms be signed by a physician, stating that they have advised me of all the risks of NOT
Oh, if I am of a religion that doesn't allow me to go to a doctor, that is another exemption, but I have to prove it. For cryin out loud!
What if I don't have insurance? What if....(just humor me here) I am an intelligent, well educated individual that has researched, explored and
already discussed all of this with numerous physicians? I am more than capable of making the decision on my own. What is happening to our country?
What is happening to our civil rights? Where is this going to END? I am SICK of it!
My kids have all of the normal required vaccinations (I wasn't as educated back then) it's only the (I think) unecessary 'boosters' that I have chosen
not to put into thier bodies. I have been given a hard time by the pediatrician, doctors I worked with (I have worked in healthcare for years) and
even the school nurse!
We are SOOOO brainwashed that we just go along with what our 'government wants'. Wake up...it has NOTHING to do with keeping our kids safe. It is
all about the profit that the pharmaceutical companies stand to make, who in turn FUND the campaigns of the politicians passing the laws!!!! It makes
On May 10, 2011, Governor Gregoire signed a bill that requires a licensed health care provider to sign the Certificate of Exemption for a parent
or guardian to exempt their child from school and child care immunization requirements. The signature verifies that the provider gave the parent or
guardian information about the risks and benefits of immunization. A parent or guardian can also turn in a signed letter from a health care provider
stating the same information.
The law goes into effect on July 22, 2011. It only applies to exemptions requested after this date. A health care provider doesn't need to sign
the form for parents or guardians who demonstrate membership in a church or religious group that does not allow a health care provider to provide
medical treatment to a child.
