How To Legally Avoid Unwanted Immunizations Of All Kinds
As you read this work, and put its principles into practice, there are two basic axioms you never want to forget, because they are the rock upon which
all your actions are based.
1. No one, nowhere, no time, and under no circumstances has the right or power in this country to immunize you or your children against your will and
conviction. If they attempt to do so, you can legally charge them with "assault with a deadly weapon" and have the full resources of our laws behind
2. At all times in attempting to avoid unwanted immunization, you have the Law of the Land behind you. Those who would try to vaccinate you against
your will are on very shaky ground. Into every compulsory immunization law in America are written legal exceptions and waivers which are there
specifically to protect you from the attempted tyranny of officialdom. It is not only your right, but your obligation to use them, if this is what
your conscience tells you.
In all your contacts with any member of the school, public health, or legal establishment, always remain calm, courteous, and humbly reverent toward
their position. You are only asking of them that which the law duty binds them to give you. There is no reason, or advantage to be gained, by
antagonizing them. Most of these officials believe they are discharging their trust as outlined by law. If they are overstepping the law, then you
must very diplomatically bring the true facts to their attention, but without attempting to belittle them. The more you can preserve their ego, the
more easily and quickly you are likely to get what you desire - a waiver of immunization.
Rule No. 1: Do not harass, belittle, or antagonize officials unnecessarily.
All compulsory laws concerning vaccination (including the military) contain exceptions and waivers. It is these protections placed in the laws that
you may legally use to exclude yourself and your children. Surprisingly, these exceptions were placed there, not for your sake (although you may take
advantage of them), but for the protection of the establishment. How is this? Let us assume that these exceptions were not there and everyone was
actually forced to be immunized. Should a child die or become mentally or physically disabled, the parent would have the perfect case to sue the
doctor, the school, the health department, and even the state legislature for enormous damages. Since they allowed no exceptions, they must accept
full responsibility for all the adverse consequences of the law. However, if exception waivers are placed in the law, the responsibility is then
transferred back to the parent. If a child should be injured by immunization, the officials can say, "Well, the parent should have exempted him if
they thought there was any danger."
Therefore, there is in truth no such thing as a compulsory vaccination law in this country. They are ALL, in essence, voluntary. The problem is that
practically no one in authority will let you know this fact.
Rule No. 2: There are no compulsory vaccination laws. All are voluntary, and you are held responsible for the adverse results upon you or your
While all immunization laws have exceptions you can use, the wording in each state differs, and you must know the exact wording for your state to make
the proper request of waiver. This information can be obtained in one of two ways.
1. Go to the reference section of your local library- look in the State Statute Revised Law Book under Public Health Law or Communicable Disease
sections. The list of immunization requirements will appear first and then the exemptions will be given. Usually one or two provisions will be listed,
either on religious or medical grounds or both.
2. You may call or write your state representative and ask for a copy of the immunization law in your state. Making this available is part of his job,
and it will be sent promptly.
Rule No. 3: Know your own state law so that you can conform to its exact requirements for exemption.
There are two basic reasons for exception - medical or religious. Which one you choose will often depend upon the wording of the law in your state and
your personal convictions. We shall discuss medical exemption first. While laws do vary, nearly all states require that a note or certificate of
waiver be submitted by a physician licensed in the state of residence. In some areas where states are small and people continually travel from one to
another for business, a statement from a physician in a contiguous state will be accepted.
In this letter it is usually necessary to state the reason for the requested waiver and the length of time it should extend. Many laws limit all such
letters to a school year and they must be renewed each fall. The two most valid reasons for medical waiver are "the fear of allergic reaction in a
sensitive child" and "to prevent possible damage to a weakened immune system." Both of these can occur in a child who has been immunized, and since
no one but the physician and the parent will be held responsible for their consequences, it is up to them to protect the child.
It is possible that some states may require the letter from an M.D. or D.O., but many will allow an exemption letter from a chiropractor if it is
courteously and properly written, as outlined above.
Rule No. 4: Medical waivers are always valid but must be written to fit each state law and often need to be renewed annually.
Most people will be best served by a religious exemption unless the state law is so restrictive as to make this nearly impossible to obtain. The only
church that is legally opposed to vaccination is the Christian Science Church. They took the matter to the courts and obtained a legal ruling of
exemption. It is because of this that state laws recognize the religious exemption.
Another church, The Church of Illumination is also by its tenets opposed to immunization for its adherents, and they are encouraged to go to jail if
necessary before submitting to this procedure. Since it is a "Church at Large," they are able to enroll members throughout the entire United States
and would be pleased to consider any applicant who is without present church affiliation and who desires the legitimate support of others in his
In some states an official letter from a church authority is required before exemption will be given; in others, it is only necessary to submit a
notarized letter that you ADHERE to religious tenets which hold vaccination against God's laws. All officialdom becomes a little shaky when you
mention religious freedom, as it is one of our basic American rights and no one wants to be made the "heavy" in denying anyone religious freedom.
The general desire of most health officials is to exert as much control as possible, while assuming as little responsibility as possible. If you place
them in a position in which they must either give you a waiver or assume additional responsibility, you will usually get your waiver.
Rule No. 5: Waivers can usually be obtained by a letter from a church official certifying that you are a member of a church that recommends against
immunizations for its adherents. Many states will also allow exemption on religious grounds if you send them a notarized letter stating that you
ADHERE to the beliefs of such a church, even if you are not an official member.
The foregoing may work for school exemptions, but are there any such waivers in the Armed Forces? Yes, all branches of the Service provide
"immunization waivers." Again, if they did not, you could sue them for millions of dollars if a reaction occurred from their immunizations. Because
of these waiver provisions you become responsible if you react.
When you first sign up or enlist, you must state your objection to the vaccinations and tell whether it is "religious conscience" or medical
reasons, such as allergies or a low tolerance to medication of any kind. If you do not show objection at this time, you have given the military the
right to do what they will with you. If there is any difficulty, the same rules apply here as in the school program. Never forget, even though you may
be in the Service, no one has the right to immunize you against your will. You do not give up your constitutional rights when you join the Armed
Rule No. 6: The rules that govern school vaccination exemption also apply to the military. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. They do not know, or
are hiding the facts of the law.
What about international travel? May I go around the world without vaccination?
The World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva grants American visitors the right to REFUSE shots when traveling internationally. However, if an area
you wish to enter is infected, you may be detained until the public health servant gives you the "go" (at his discretion). Thousands travel
world-wide each year without shots - so may you if that is your choice. Many of our co-workers have travel led over much of the world and have never
taken any immunizations, nor were they ever detained.
It would be wise to request a copy of Foreign Rules and Regulations, Part 71, Title 42, on immunization when you receive your passport. Never forget
the basic rule, however, "No one will vaccinate you against your will because by doing so they assume full responsibility for the consequences both
legal and medical."
Rule No. 7: You may travel wherever you wish in the world without vaccination. The worst that can happen is that in very rare circumstances you may be
