Senator Richard Pan, the patron saint of vaccine mandates in California and sponsor of SB277, the legislation that radically reduced the ability for California families to make medical vaccination choices for their children, is quoted heavily in this article below. Homeschoolers are in his sites as ripe targets for his brand of medical political jack booted thuggery.
Earlier this year, one of America's best known pediatricians, Dr. Bob Sears, was placed on probation for almost 3 years because of a medical exemption he granted. That's the strategy - choke off the supply despite the growing demand. Threaten the livelihood of doctors. Imagine that. Families want choice in how to vaccinate their children. Americans do NOT like to be told what we can and can not do with our bodies, our children. California allows every possible liberty under the sun - EXCEPT vaccination choice. Why? Cui bono? Pharma and politicians funded by them.
The vaccination rate for California kindergartners went down slightly last school year, including in San Diego County, after hitting a record high the previous year.
One reason for the decline: Medical exemptions are increasing. Statewide, the rate of students with medical exemptions more than tripled since the 2015-16 school year. The rate in San Diego County increased sixfold.
Although medical exemptions represented a small portion of the overall student population last school year — less than 1 percent in California and slightly more than 1 percent in San Diego County — the increase has some concerned.
Dr. Dean Sidelinger, the county’s child health medical officer, said the number of children who need medical exemptions should be small, so he questions what’s behind the increase.
“Is it truly more kids who need a medical exemption, or is it that providers are getting more permissive in giving these medical exemptions?” Sidelinger said. Read more in the Times of San Diego at Vaccination Rates For Kindergartners Decline in San Diego County.
