Royce Christyn| Are you ready to receive a mandatory adult vaccine? We have written about the recent vaccine laws being put into place in the U.S. (read here and here). If you live in California and are an adult who is not vaccinated, you may want to consider moving if you don’t want to be forced into getting vaccines. Many are asking if California is becoming a medical police state.
It all began when California became the first state to pass a bill. The bill, SB277, made it so that parents could no longer use religious reasons as an excuse to not vaccinate their children. The controversial bill is now a law, yet it is facing backlash and legal hurdles as it moves forwards.
But California lawmakers don’t want to stop at making vaccines mandatory for children.
VaccineImpact.com writes of what they are calling “medical tyranny”:
Now, legislators in California want to pass the “first US adult vaccine mandate with NO personal exemptions and CRIMINAL penalties for failure to comply.” SB 792, would eliminate an adult’s right to exempt themselves from one, some, or all vaccines, a risk-laden medical procedure.
Will California soon become a medical police state?
According to California News Wire:
The Calif. Assembly Committee on Human Services yesterday approved SB 792 authored by Senator Tony Mendoza (D-Artesia) on a bipartisan vote of 15 to 2. The bill will protect California children in day care from contracting serious diseases by requiring family day care home and day care center workers to be vaccinated against measles, pertussis, and influenza. The bill now goes to the Assembly Appropriations Committee for consideration.
Vaccine Impact continues:
SB792- The first US adult vaccine mandate with NO personal exemptions (only medical exemptions approved by a doctor and defined by the bill) and CRIMINAL penalties for failure to comply will be heard in the California Assembly Human Services Committee this Tuesday July 14th at 1:30 in Room 437.
SB 792 would eliminate an adult’s right to exempt themselves from one, some, or all vaccines, a risk-laden medical procedure. This bill would make California the first state to require mandated vaccinations for all childcare workers, including all private and public school early childhood education programs (Headstart, Private preK and preschools), family daycares, and daycare centers.
Commencing September 1, 2016, a person shall not be employed at a family day care home if he or she has not been immunized against influenza, pertussis, and measles. An employee shall receive an influenza vaccination between August 1 and December 1 of each year.
This bill eliminates medical autonomy, crushes religious freedom, undermines personal freedom, and burdens quality providers with a non-optional series of medical interventions in the form of mandated vaccines that are not even 100% effective.
Bill SB 792 excerpt:
This bill, commencing September 1, 2016, would prohibit a day care center or a family day care home from employing any person who has not been immunized in accordance with the schedule for routine adult immunizations, prescribed by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The bill would specify circumstances under which a person would be exempt from the immunization requirement, based on medical safety and current immunity, as specified. The bill would make conforming changes to provisions that set forth qualifications for day care center teachers and applicants for licensure as a family day care center. Because the bill would extend the application of a crime under the act, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
