Idaho Parents To Receive Full Transparency Regarding Vaccine Exemptions
Idaho’s HB 298 passed easily by the legislature and was signed by the governor on April 19, 2021. The amendment to section 39-4802 reads as follows:
“School officials shall describe the exemptions provided in this section and provide a citation to this section in any communication to parents and guardians regarding immunization.”
It is important to note that the school must provide both the description of exemptions as well as cite the statute 39-4802 which says,
“Any minor child whose parent or guardian has submitted a signed statement to school officials stating their objections on religious or other grounds shall be exempt from the provisions of this chapter.”
Idaho parents will finally receive full transparency about what is actually required by Idaho law. If parents receive any form of communication regarding vaccine requirements after July 1 that doesn’t properly include the exemption information, they should contact the school board, their district, the superintendent, the Health and Welfare Department, as well as the Department of Education.
Many Idaho parents are wondering if the Covid-19 vaccine can be required for children attending school. Each state decides which vaccines are required for their children’s school enrollment but they often look to the CDC recommendations for guidance. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) is a committee within the CDC that develops vaccine schedules. ACIP recommends the use of COVID-19 vaccines within the scope of the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) or Biologics License Application for the particular vaccine. EUA is not the same as FDA approval and under 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3 medical products for emergency use must have informed consent and are not allowed to be mandatory.
As a parent, are you willing to have your child participate in a study using an experimental and, as yet, unproven intervention that is unlike any other intervention which modern medicine has developed?
None of these unapproved interventions (which are being called “vaccines”) have ever been tested in animals, let alone humans, in either short- or long-term safety nor efficacy studies for Covid-19. Furthermore, we have absolutely no idea what effects these interventions will have on our children nor the population at large. Everything about these new interventions is speculative, at best, and of extremely high risk to say the least.
Use of these interventions makes for bad science and bad medicine and is not healthcare by the farthest stretch of anyone’s imagination.
Our community benefits when Idaho parents are empowered with their rights and make informed choices. They should now have full transparency when it comes to the current required vaccines for school enrollment. It is imperative that parents hold their schools accountable for the new addition to the code that requires full disclosure of vaccine exemptions.
