California Law and Vaccines

No shots, no school? No way! Not in California. In fact, all 50 states allow exemption from childhood vaccination for medical reasons, and 48 states provide religious and/or philosophical exemptions for vaccination.

California law is very clear that parents have the ultimate authority to decide what vaccines – if any – their child will receive. It is the parents who call the shots. Not the federal government. Not the state government. Not the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC).

Parents in California preserve the right to make all medical decisions for their children, including whether or not federal- and state-recommended vaccines are best for their kids.

Has a school nurse, a teacher, or even a school administrator told you that your child absolutely must be vaccinated before he or she can attend school? Unfortunately there are many people in positions of authority who are unaware of the law in California, which applies equally among every single public school district in California.

If anyone at your child’s school tries to tell you that opting out of vaccinations for your child is not an option, politely tell them they are misinformed. Ask the person to go online to the website of the California Department of Public Health and read what the law states. The Personal Belief Exemption (PBE) form is available right there on the website for downloading and printing. A parent or guardian must get the PBE form signed by a healthcare professional, and then simply bring a copy of the signed form to the office at their child’s school.

“The fact that manmade vaccines cannot replicate the body’s natural experience with the disease is one of the key points of contention between those who insist that mankind cannot live without mass use of multiple vaccines and those who believe that mankind’s biological integrity will be severely compromised by their continued use,” according to Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center.

Health officials are unable to explain why the vast majority of people who contracted whooping cough in the last two epidemics in California and Washington had been vaccinated against whooping cough with the DTaP vaccine. Despite high levels of vaccination against whooping cough, its incidence is on the rise all across the United States.

Many public figures and the mainstream media continue blaming unvaccinated children for causing periodic outbreaks of whooping cough. This is not the case. “It does not appear that anti-vaccination sentiment among parents has contributed to either the national rise in cases or the Washington state epidemic,” according to Ann Schuchat, MD, director at the CDC’s National Center for Immunization.

What medical reasons are there for not vaccinating a child with the DTaP vaccine, other than the fact that the vaccine is utterly failing to protect against whooping cough? According to the CDC there are several reasons a child should not be vaccinated: If the child is moderately or severely ill; if the child has ever had a life-threatening allergic reaction from a vaccination; if the child has ever suffered encephalitis (brain swelling) or a nervous system disorder within 7 days following vaccination; if the child has ever collapsed or had a seizure following vaccination; if the child has ever cried nonstop for 3 hours or more following a vaccination; if the child has ever spiked a fever over 105 degrees Fahrenheit following vaccination.

More than 30,000 reports of vaccine-induced injuries are filed each year with the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), with 13 percent of the reports termed “serious.” That’s approximately 4,000 serious events per year. VAERS is co-sponsored by the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The “serious” category on VAERS includes disability, the onset of seizures, and death. Even so, authorities estimate only 1 to 10 percent of all adverse events are ever reported, so the actual number of vaccine injuries is likely much, much higher.

Vaccine makers cannot be sued for wrongful death or vaccine injury, yet the government has paid out over 3 billion dollars to parents whose children have been seriously harmed or killed by a vaccine.

Infectious illnesses declined significantly due to major advances in nutrition, hygiene, antiseptic medical care, and public sanitation in the past 120 years. In fact, vaccines did not come into widespread use until the death rate from childhood infections had already plummeted by 95 percent. And yet the CDC continues to make the wildly misleading claim on its website, “Perhaps the greatest success story in public health is the reduction of infectious diseases resulting from the use of vaccines.”

Ask your pediatrician why no scientific study has ever been done comparing the health of vaccinated children versus unvaccinated children. Ask your doctor why there has never been a single study verifying that is safe to give multiple vaccines to a child during a single visit to the doctor’s office. Ask your pediatrician why “one-size-fits-all” vaccine doses are given without regard to the weight of the individual baby or child. Ask your doctor why toxicologists warn against exposure to the tiniest microscopic amounts of toxic metals and chemicals found in vaccines, yet medical doctors expose children to these substances repeatedly with each injection of a vaccine.

In my work with vaccine-injured children, there is one sentiment I have heard over and over from parents: “I wish I had waited. I wish I had asked more questions. I wish I had taken the time to research vaccines before I vaccinated my child.”
