2011 School and Child Care Immunization Exemption Law Frequently Asked Questions
The new law says that if a parent or guardian wants to exempt their child from school or child care immunization requirements, they must first get information about the benefits and risks of vaccinations from a licensed health care provider. The provider will sign the Certificate of Exemption form that parents have to turn in to the school or child care to exempt their child. Instead of signing the form, providers may choose to write and sign a letter verifying the same information.Here's a copy of the WA exemption form...
Just to get a PHILOSOPHICAL EXEMPTION, you have to go to an MD, SPEND MONEY, so they can give you their bullshit mainstream spill. For a PHILOSOPHICAL EXEMPTION! Might as well call it a medical exemption, because that's exactly how to get a medical exemption.
Meh. I want these assholes off the face of the earth YESTERDAY!

AB2109 was introduced in CA on 2/23/12 by Assembly Member Pan, a Democrat physician. The bill will require the signature of an MD, nurse practitioner, or physician's assistant for a personal beliefs/religious exemption from vaccination. Naturopaths and chiropractors CANNOT sign off. The signature must be obtained on a separate form to be provided by the CA State Dept of Health which will state that the "health care practitioner" has provided benefits and risks information to the parent or guardian or emancipated minor.
We need people to immediately contact their CA state legislators and ask for them to oppose this bill. We don't have a concrete hearing date or committee assignment yet, but hope to early this week.
Not everyone utilizes Western medicine based healthcare providers. This bill FORCES parents to do so in order to obtain an exemption. Doctors, nurse practitioner's and PA's should have NOTHING to do with a parents personal beliefs/religious exemption from vaccination. This is simply a way to make getting an exemption more difficult and force parents to pay money to be harassed by providers that don't share their medical views. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you live in CA and are willing to help fight this bill. I, for one, am not willing to sit here and let another complete violation of parental rights pass into law. It's bad enough AB499 was signed into law while our Governor banned tanning beds for minors.
