SB1050 Immunization Exemption Form

SUPPORT SB 1050 for Immunization Exemption Form COMPLIANCE

Media Contact:  Sarah @ [email protected]

IDAHO STATUTES CLEARLY STATE: VACCINES ARE NOT MANDATED FOR DAYCARE or SCHOOLS. LAWS CLEARLY STATE A PARENT'S WRITTEN STATEMENT IS AN ACCEPTABLE FORM OF IMMUNIZATION EXEMPTION. The Public Health Department refuses to accept a parents' written affidavit, which leads many to wonder HOW IS THAT LEGAL?

Idaho's Health & Welfare Department created a mandatory immunization form that falls FAR OUTSIDE THE SCOPE OF CURRENT STATUTES and is discriminatory to the minority of parents who legally choose to OPT OUT of the full CDC vaccine schedule. Parents are forced to sign IDHW's mandatory form that demands parents state that they are putting their children at risk. No parent should be forced to sign a form that is self-incriminatory in order to enroll their child into a daycare program or public school.

The Public Health department is getting away with creating their own rules and children are being denied access to daycare and schools.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 enrollment that violates privacy and is potentially self-incriminating. 

LAW STATES Idaho Code 39-4802: 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.  Medical exemptions are also allowed.

Our Current Immunization Exemption Laws Clearly States:

  • Idaho Statutes permit you, as an individual or parent the right to choose whether or not to vaccinate your child.  
  • The statute does not require you to disclose what other grounds your refusal to immunization is. As with any medical decision, the decision to vaccinate is a right of the individual or parent.
  • The State of Idaho, your doctor and public health employees cannot force you or your child to be vaccinated.
  • Your child cannot be excluded from a school or public program because you have exercised your right to not vaccinate.


    Just line out and initial it? NOPE!

    Health Freedom Idaho Surveys show that most schools have denied children access to school when parents have submitted the legally acceptable parental statement of vaccine exemption. There are many schools refusing to accept the form if it has been altered in any way.  

    This discriminatory action on the part of schools (who feel their hands are tied due to Health and Welfare Administrative policy) has caught the attention of Health Freedom Idaho.  While correspondence from the Office of the Attorney General and Legislators have shown that there is in fact a discrepancy in the legal statutes and the scope of the form required by IDHW there has been no challenge to change the current administrative procedures to fall back in line with the law.
    SEE:  Letter 1.    Letter 2. 

    The Law Clearly States Exemptions are Permitted and the legally acceptable process a parent can follow.
    The Administrative Policies of the Health and Welfare Department clearly fall OUTSIDE THE SCOPE OF LAW.

    IDHW's MANDATORY IMMUNIZATION FORM IS DISCRIMINATORY.

    Health Freedom Idaho presented proposed clarifying legislation on February 6 to the Senate Health and Welfare Committee. They confirmed that indeed the Idaho Health and Welfare Department's form falls outside the scope of the law. A new bill Senate Bill #1050 was created and will now work its way through the legislative process.

    Health Freedom Idaho's summary of the bill's purpose:

    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.

  • CONTACT THE HEALTH AND WELFARE COMMITTEES Today tell them YES on SB1050 the Health Department should be required to comply with the existing statues allowing parents to opt out of vaccines using a signed statement.

UPDATE!! ACT NOW!


There is A LOT going on behind the scenes to shut down the bill SB 1050.
(SB 1050 is the HFI sponsored bill that would keep the Health Departments administrative policy in line with the current statute.)
It appears we are poking a bear (aka the Health Department) that is use to getting its own way! In order to protect liberty, we need a GIANT response. The Health Department is making every attempt to not only shut down our efforts to keep them 'in line' with existing statutes. Tell our elected officials they MUST SUPPORT SB 1050.

Additional Resources:

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 signed 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 required to disclose vaccination status to the state.

 

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

By mandating the current exemption form, which lists individual vaccines and demands confidential medical information, parents are not able to exercise their right to privacy and exemption without facing enrollment denial by schools. Clearly this form does not align with the intentions 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 a signed statement to school officials stating their objections on religious or other grounds shall be exempt from the provisions of this chapter. The signed statement may appear in a letter from the parent or guardian and is not required to be made on a form furnished by the state board of health and welfare, 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.
