No Shots, No School? I think NOT! I had not given much thought to vaccines lately, but the other day, I attended an Orientation for one of my children’s upcoming year into middle school. One of the topics covered by the School Counselor was vaccines. She stated verbally (and it was given out in print), that BY LAW, your child MUST have two MMRs and two Varicella vaccines before they can begin the school year next year. Coincidentally, my child has already had those because we used to vaccinate, before I woke up. So, it really doesn’t matter for us. However, I really had to fight the urge to stand up and shout, “It’s a lie!! You don’t have to do that to your child if you don’t have peace about it!!” Of course, my common sense and social inhibitions kept my mouth shut and my batookus in my seat, but I left feeling a little queasy, hoping that parents are aware of what they are doing, making educated decisions. I am not saying that I believe no one should get the shots, just that we had decided it is not for us and that I hate the thought of parents’ rights being violated and parents being bullied into subjecting their children to something they might not otherwise…Here is a copy and paste of an affidavit I saved a while back that states that we DO have the right, in ANY state to refuse vaccinations if we choose to do so. I wish I could recall the site I retrieved this from, but it has been too long. I hope it is helpful and informative to someone. Notice the strong language..it points out the SCHOOL is the criminal, not YOU, when they attempt to force you to vaccinate your child!
