Here's a vaccine that may cause Guillain-Barre Syndrome, but no tylenol for you!

A brief post regarding vaccines and some twisted "freedom"

Example: New York. Apparently, while the state allows religious exemptions, they require sincerity tests.

Also, many states allow personal exemptions, which is good for families who want informed consent and to be able to research and verify to what they are agreeing.

But, in California, a 12 year old can consent to vaccines for "STDs". (HPV Vaccine). Lovely.

In the same breath... they can't get tylenol from their school. So they can give their own permission (coerced? let's not go there)... for a vaccine that is controversial (especially for religious families) and has documented cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome... but that same CHILD cannot request pain relievers.

California State Law states that medication may not be dispensed by school personnel without a physician's order. Occasionally a student under medical care may continue to attend school. In these special cases, school personnel may administer medication when the parents provide the school with a Physician's Authorization for the Administration of Medicine by School Personnel/Parent Release for the Administration of Medicine form which includes name(s) of the medication, dosage, time(s) and duration that the medication is to be given to the student.Physician's instructions must be renewed each year. Any changes in medication, amount, or means of administering require new physician's instructions.The "Physician's' Authorization for the Administration of Medicine by School Personnel" and the "Parent Release for the Administration of Medicine" forms are available in the office.When a child’s physician prescribes medication to be taken during school hours, state law requires that the physician state the dosage and related information on the appropriate school district form, which is available in all school offices. Parent are required to sign a release allowing school personnel to dispense medication. For additional information on medication issues, please see sections of the California Education Code in the parental notifications handout.An information sheet about medication administration, illness and communicable diseases is distributed in all student registration packets, and is available by contacting the Main Office or click on PDF document below.

Do we have freedom? And, if so, what cost?

Preach it! This is so backwards, isn't it?

This infuriates me. Have you heard about New York schools passing out birth control and morning after pills to whoever asks regardless of age? They can't give our kids aspirin for a headache but they can give them hormones and abortifacients. Which is why there's no way my child will be going to a public school.
