No Jab, No education: New CA Law Requires Middle Schoolers to Provide Proof of Tdap Vaccination in Order to Receive Education

Thursday, 03 May 2012 09:03

‘A new amendment to California’s Health and Safety Code as it relates to vaccinations will take effect this fall for the 2012-2013 school year, and will require all incoming seventh graders, as well as eighth and twelfth graders for the first year, to get a Tdap booster vaccination for pertussis (whooping cough) before being admitted to school. The website of the Marin County School District, which includes the city of San Francisco, literally states “No shot, No School!” in an apparent attempt to strong-arm parents into complying with the new provision.

Even though students in California can be exempted from any and all vaccinations for medical or personal reasons, most parents are largely unaware of this fact. And because of the 2010 whooping cough outbreak in California, many parents will likely just comply with the new Tdap requirement simply out of fear that their child could be the next victim of the disease, even though the Tdap vaccine itself has been shown to be ineffective at protecting against whooping cough.’

    Just a few days ago I wrote about my son’s bad reaction to pertussis vaccine. It’s good that we have vaccines to keep our children safe but bad that parents are strong-armed into giving their kids drugs without being given all the information about their possible effects.

      The ideea of vaccines is not bad and some maybe even help, but you must be 100% sure of what it contains and side effects before you inject it in your infant. I`m willing to bet that almost every “must be done” vaccine is extremely bad in the long term. Take care
