Texas requires an affidavit to get an exemption

This information is from the dept of health in Texas. It explains what a college or university student must do to be 'exempted' from vaccination requirements. The info is on the bottom right of the page.] it also states:

"Please do not make any copies of the affidavit form. Photocopies will print with the word "void" throughout the form, making the form null & void."

My printing company said the words null and void are embedded in the paper and there is no way to get around it using copy machines or scanners.

Now, did the TX state statutes permit the department of health to put such a policy - requiring a signed notarized affidavit - in place or was it did done to comply with a federal grant? How can one use a copy of an affidavit as proof a requirement was met, when it says null and void across the front?

Unfortunately, you have to provide personal information to get a copy of the affidavit form, so I cannot access it. I'd love to see what it says. The idea of requiring that an exemption request be notarized and uncopyable makes me suspicious.

This is especially disconcerting when you look at the form pediatricians are now giving parents, which also requires the signature be witnessed. It reads like a confession and was designed to entrap the unsuspecting parent.

The heat is on to make ex emptions and/or refusals more and more difficult and unacceptable. It looks like [un]Healthy People 2020 is being rolled out before our very eyes.
