There are good vaccines. Vaccine research should continue.
However, most of the commercial vaccines which our children – and soon all of us – will be forced to be jabbed with are not safe and not effective. They contain dangerous adjuvants. Protection fades and boosters are required, with each booster shot boosting less. Many have been harmed; the Vaccine Court has paid out over $3 billion dollars. Vaccine manufacturers are completely exempt from any and all liability, and they have become reckless. The result is an industrialization of vaccination. Commercial vaccine technology is in a very primitive stage.
The herd theory is used to justify compulsory vaccination. The theory goes like this: Some 95% must be vaccinated to protect the 5% who cannot be vaccinated because of immune and other disorders. However, those immunized are themselves contagious and therefore more likely than the unvaccinated to spread disease. Moreover, outbreaks occur in populations which are mostly vaccinated. The 95% level cannot be achieved because both the vaccinated and the un-vaccinated can be infected. So the herd immunity theory turns logic on its head. The only thing true about the herd immunity theory is that suckers are herded in.
For more detail read my attorney analysis of vaccines, where I discuss the safe and effective vaccines and the not safe and not effective vaccines.
What part does Governor Jay Inslee play in this? Jay is a public advocate for forcing virtually all children to be vaccinated with every dose of every vaccine on the CDC approved vaccine list.
“We know parents care deeply for their children and some are afraid of these vaccines and worry that they cause disease,” Inslee wrote Friday. “I understand their fear, but there is overwhelming scientific evidence that the risks are minuscule and that my grandchildren and your children and grandchildren are safer if we all go to our doctor and get our shots.”
The news for Governor Inslee is that the risks are not miniscule. Some children are not made safer by some vaccines. They are harmed, sometimes seriously.
The effort to eliminate religious and philosophical vaccine exemptions failed in Washington as well as in Oregon.
However, the effort succeeded in California. It will go into effect in July of 2016. Parents there must either home school their children or vaccinate them or leave the state. Some suggest charging medical practitioners with assault. Expect litigation.
Washington has recently made it more difficult for parents to decline vaccination for their children. RCW 28A.210.090 provides:
(1) Any child shall be exempt in whole or in part from the immunization measures required by RCW 28A.210.060 through 28A.210.170 upon the presentation of any one or more of the certifications required by this section, on a form prescribed by the department of health:
(a) A written certification signed by a health care practitioner that a particular vaccine required by rule of the state board of health is, in his or her judgment, not advisable for the child: PROVIDED, That when it is determined that this particular vaccine is no longer contraindicated, the child will be required to have the vaccine;
(b) A written certification signed by any parent or legal guardian of the child or any adult in loco parentis to the child that the religious beliefs of the signator are contrary to the required immunization measures; or
(c) A written certification signed by any parent or legal guardian of the child or any adult in loco parentis to the child that the signator has either a philosophical or personal objection to the immunization of the child.
(a) The form presented on or after July 22, 2011, must include a statement to be signed by a health care practitioner stating that he or she provided the signator with information about the benefits and risks of immunization to the child. The form may be signed by a health care practitioner at any time prior to the enrollment of the child in a school or licensed day care. Photocopies of the signed form or a letter from the health care practitioner referencing the child’s name shall be accepted in lieu of the original form.
(b) A health care practitioner who, in good faith, signs the statement provided for in (a) of this subsection is immune from civil liability for providing the signature.
(c) Any parent or legal guardian of the child or any adult in loco parentis to the child who exempts the child due to religious beliefs pursuant to subsection (1)(b) of this section is not required to have the form provided for in (a) of this subsection signed by a health care practitioner if the parent or legal guardian demonstrates membership in a religious body or a church in which the religious beliefs or teachings of the church preclude a health care practitioner from providing medical treatment to the child.
(3) For purposes of this section, “health care practitioner” means a physician licensed under chapter 18.71 or 18.57 RCW, a naturopath licensed under chapter18.36A RCW, a physician assistant licensed under chapter 18.71A or 18.57A RCW, or an advanced registered nurse practitioner licensed under chapter 18.79 RCW.
In plain English: To obtain a medical exemption a parent needs a certificate from a medical professional. To obtain a religious or philosophical exemption the parent must 1) either be an active member of a denomination which opposes vaccination or perhaps even all medical treatment or 2) if the parent is not an active member of such a denomination, the parent must also obtain a medical certificate. It is probably unconstitutional to require that a person be a member of a particular religion in order to raise a religious or philosophical objection.
In Washington unvaccinated children can be sent home if there is an outbreak of a childhood disease in his or her school. This is an odd rule give that the CDC admits, in the case of pertussis, that vaccinated children can spread the disease. The same is true for children who have been vaccinated with the measles vaccine or any attenuated live virus vaccine.
