How Can the Public Health Department Get Away It…
Senate Bill #1050
Clarifies Section 39-4802 (2)Idaho Code that a parent has the legal right to enroll their child(ren) in Idaho schools, while maintaining their privacy, their right to medical confidentiality, and the right to opt out of providing IRIS-type vaccination information. 

Parents’ rights, privacy, confidentiality, and the right to shield oneself from unjust incrimination are paramount to Idahoans and of utmost importance in maintaining liberty.  This bill will secure those natural rights.

Idaho has clearly stated in existing laws that parents are legally able to opt out of some/all vaccines for their children when enrolling in daycare or public school.  The Public Health Department has created administrative procedures that intentionally discriminates against a minority group, violates their privacy, and denies their children access to schools when they opt to take their legally allowed vaccine exemption.

1. IDAHO STATUES CLEARLY STATE: VACCINES ARE NOT MANDATED FOR DAYCARE or SCHOOLS.
2. IDAHO STATUES CLEARLY STATE: PARENTS MAY SUBMIT A WRITTEN STATEMENT THAT THEY ARE CHOOSING TO EXEMPT THEIR CHILD FROM SOME/ALL VACCINES.

Department of Health will NOT ACCEPT the legally acceptable written statement from parents.

Department of Health has created a form that violates family’s rights and in turn forces school officials to deny children entrance into schools

  • Parents are forced to sign IDHW’s mandatory form that demands parents state they are putting their children at risk to contracting disease that carry serious complications.
    EXEMPTION FORM http://www.healthandwelfare.idaho.gov/Portals/0/Health/Immunizations/School%20Exemption%20Form%20-%20English.pdf
  • IDHW’s form was intentionally created to gather data from parents for the purpose of submitting that data to a ‘voluntary’ vaccine tracking database. Removing parental right to privacy and legal option to OPT OUT of the registry.
  • The Health Department refuses to accept a legally acceptable signed parental affidavit. A blatant disregard for Idaho statue. Discriminating against families who choose to invoke their legal option to vaccine exemption.
 
The Public Health department is getting away creating procedures that contradict the law and children are being denied access to daycare and schools.

February 6th the Senate Health and Welfare Committee heard Health Freedom Idaho’s concerns and voted to have those concerns heard as bill #S 1050. <https://legislature.idaho.gov/wp-content/uploads/sessioninfo/2017/legislation/S1050.pdf>

The purpose of this bill is to clarify Section 39-4802 (2)Idaho Code.

The current language is as follows:

 (2) Any minor child whose parent or guardian has submitted assigned statement to school officials stating their objections on religious or other grounds shall be exempt from the provisions of this chapter.

 Original Intent

The original intent of this section was that an Idaho parent/ guardian may exercise their right to privacy and medical confidentiality by simply submitting a signed statement to school officials in

order to invoke their right to exemption regarding the state-prescribed vaccination schedule for school enrollment.

 Rules Created Mandating Unjust Form

Rules have since been created requiring a state health department form be mandated. The form that was created for this purpose contains unnecessary, possibly incriminating language that is far outside the scope of this section.

 

Section 39-4804 Idaho Code is being disregarded in the forced use of the current mandatory exemption form. That section states in part:

 

NOTIFICATION TO PARENT OR GUARDIAN.

 (b) Participation in the immunization registry is voluntary;Because the Idaho IRIS vaccine registry is voluntary, a parent is not requiredto disclose vaccination status to the state.

 Form Forces Parents to Give Up Rights or Child’s Education

By mandating the current exemption form, which listsindividual vaccines and demands confidential medical information, parents arenot able to exercise their right to privacy and exemption without facingenrollment denial by schools. Clearly this form does not align with theintentions of the current statutes.

 This Bill Will Re-secure Idahoan’s Rights to Privacy, Confidentiality,& Avoidance of Unjust Incrimination

 This bill would modify for clarification Section 39-4802 (2)to read:

 (2) Any minor child whose parent or guardian has submitted asigned statement to school officials stating their objections on religious orother grounds shall be exempt from the provisions of this chapter. The signedstatement may appear in a letter from the parent or guardian and is notrequired to be made on a form furnished by the state board of health andwelfare, a school, or another entity.

 This clarifies that a parent has the right to enroll their child(ren) in Idaho schools, while maintaining their privacy, their right to medical confidentiality, and the right to opt out of providing IRIS-type vaccination information. Parents’ rights, privacy, confidentiality, and the right to shield oneself from unjust incrimination are paramount to Idahoans and of utmost importance in maintaining liberty.  This bill will secure those natural rights.
