NY: All New Vaccine Mandates Squashed

Parents are Powerful

It's official, New York Assembly Bill A 10942, the "worst vaccine bill ever" and the mandatory meningococcal vaccine bill it morphed into late in the session are dead. And they were killed by parents who just aren't going to let pharma kick them around anymore.

Another vaccine bill that would have allowed minors to get vaccines for sexually-transmitted diseases without parents permission or knowledge went down to an ignominious defeat when the Assembly Health committee refused to even consider it.

This represents the fourth defeat in a row, with no wins, for the vaccine industry in New York, last year an mandatory HPV bill was killed.

As usual with most vaccine bills in New York, they were submitted late in the session which limits the time that the opposition has to make arguments against a proposal. The original A 10942 was submitted at the request of the Health Department and would have caused a sweeping restructuring of NY vaccine policy; all CDC recommended vaccines would have become mandatory for all children, including those too young to enter school, and all new CDC recommended vaccines would automatically become mandatory.

A 10942 was greeted by a rally of hundreds of parents from all around the state, many were parent of vaccine-injured children, others though have healthy children and would like to see them stay healthy. A broad cross section of organizations were involved, autism organization, holistic health groups, libertarians, and many others came together for the first time in joint political action. Legislative aides report a flood of phone calls, faxes, letters and emails in opposition.

The legislature responded with scaling the bill back to require the menigoccocal shot for seventh graders. This new version was introduced last Friday and on Monday there were new demonstrations by parents both in Albany and in front of the Long Island office of State Senator Kemp Hannon who introduced the meningitis legislation. The bill died today with the adjournment of the legislature.

Organizers of the successful campaign will be holding meetings and conferences to make sure that in the next session of the legislature that the philosophical exemption bills sponsored by State Senator Frank Padavan and Assembly member Mark Alessi are passed. And in a new twist on vaccines rights, New Yorkers will be working to introduce legislation that will drop vaccines from the mandatory list. The first target will be hepatitis b, a shot given to newborns ostensibly to prevent a sexually transmitted disease.

Dear Mr Fucetola,
I have a son who is severely developmentally disabled, and he was given many vaccines beginning when he was newborn;(hepatitis b vaccine)I have found out that this is absolutely crazy, a health professional who would give a child a live vaccine before it's immune system is even developed.
I would also like to say that this autistic condition is being grossly underreported, since I have met many parents at the school my son attends, and their families, like ours, have absolutely no history of this condition in their families.
My son is now nine years old, and no behavioural therapy has helped him before the holistic biomedical course of therapy he is now receiving. This therapy includes EFA, glutathione cream, digestive enzymes, methyl b12 injections, and intravenous chelation, since it has been recently discovered that these children are extremely toxic, and and they have much oxidative stress, which may have been caused by major assaults on the young and undeveloped immune system, thus causing a major disruption in the biochemical balance in their bodies. Hopefully, these facts will be permitted as evidence, and as presented by brave doctors and lawyers such as yourself, who have ;no fear of any health for profit organization.
