Children may be granted a medical exemption to vaccinations with a note from a doctor attesting that the child’s health condition prohibits vaccinations.
Those with medical conditions such as allergies and immune-system deficiencies, confirmed by a physician, would be excused from immunization.Bill SB 792 excerpt: This bill, commencing September 1, 2016, would prohibit a day care center or a family day care home from employing any person who has not been immunized in accordance with the schedule for routine adult immunizations, prescribed by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In between these two extreme views, however, is where the vast majority of doctors practicing today would probably categorize their position.The bill would specify circumstances under which a person would be exempt from the immunization requirement, based on medical safety and current immunity, as specified. Many doctors who consider themselves “pro-vaccine,” for example, do not believe that every single vaccine is appropriate for every single individual.Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego), who voted for the measure, said she understood the personal nature of parents' decisions about their children's health.“While I respect the fundamental right to make that decision as a family,” Gonzalez told her colleagues, “we must balance that with the fact that none of us has the right to endanger others.”Assemblyman Mike Gatto, a Glendale Democrat, voted against the bill, saying it violated parental rights.“The broadness of this bill likely dooms it from a constitutional standpoint,” Gatto said, accusing the state of “infringing on the rights of children to attend school.”More than 13,500 California kindergarten students currently have waivers based on their parents' beliefs.A parent group, A Voice For Choice, found Thursday's vote “unsettling,” spokeswoman Christina Hildebrand said.An employee shall receive an influenza vaccination between August 1 and December 1 of each year. The two most extreme positions are those doctors who are 100% against vaccines and do not administer them at all, and those doctors that believe that ALL vaccines are safe and effective for ALL people, ALL the time, by force if necessary.
This bill eliminates medical autonomy, crushes religious freedom, undermines personal freedom, and burdens quality providers with a non-optional series of medical interventions in the form of mandated vaccines that are not even 100% effective. Very few doctors fall into either of these two extremist positions, and yet it is the extreme pro-vaccine position that is presented by the U. Government and mainstream media as being the dominant position of the medical field.
Hundreds of parents besieged the Capitol during a series of legislative hearings to oppose the bill in the belief that vaccines are unsafe, that the proposal would violate their privacy rights and that they alone — not the state — should choose whether to vaccinate their children.
More gathered for the vote on Thursday.“This bill puts the state between children and parents regardless of your position on vaccination,” said Luke Van der Westhuyzem, a parent from Walnut Creek who was among dozens of protesters at the Capitol.
“It’s a great thing for California kids,” said Catherine Flores Martin, director of the California Immunization Coalition.
“It’s a big win for schools and communities.” To be clear, California parents do not have to immunize their children.
