HFI Applauds Senator Foreman's Bill # 1227 for Vaccine Exemption Form Clarification

Contact the Health Committee and tell them to VOTE YES on SB1227! This bill is important in providing CLARIFICATION to the statute. A parent's right to invoke vaccine exemptions for their children is NOT DEPENDENT on a form provided by the Health Department. WE NEED YOUR PUBLIC TESTIMONY!
Tell the welfare committe to vote yes on bill #S1227 
This bill adds only clarification to Idaho Statute 39-4802. The is contradiction in the Idaho statute and the administrative rules used by Health and Welfare that causes confusion for schools and discrimination against families who choose to invoke their right to opt out of some or all vaccines for daycare and school enrollment.

The existing statute is clear that a form is not necessary.



The administrative policy must adhere to the statute in place.
Regardless of your opinion on the efficacy of vaccines, it is unacceptable to allow the department of health to mandate a discriminatory form for school and daycare enrollment that violates the intent of the law, invades privacy, and is potentially self-incriminating.

Idaho statute 39–4802(2) permits a parent/guardian:
1. The right to choose whether to vaccinate their child.
2. The right to choose to participate or decline participation in the state registry system (IRIS)
3. The right to opt out without explanation of objection.

Contact the Health Committee and let them know this bill is important in providing CLARIFICATION to the statute. A parent's right to invoke vaccine exemptions for their children is NOT DEPENDENT on a form provided by the Health Department.
