Note: Below is a letter and links from Laura Hayes. For those unaware California's SB276, here's the bill's introduction: In short, it does what HMO care has done to medical pre-approvals, puts a California Public Health bureaucrat in charge of the approval of a new, narrow definition of qualifying events for vaccine medical exemptions. Look at the terminology, "State Public Health Officer or the public health officer’s designee" or the Frankly, California's children would be safer in the hands of California's Department of Public WORKS.... If vaccination is so important to survival, how is removing the doctor who KNOWS THE PATIENT THE BEST from the equation and putting up a Wonder Wall that few will scale in the patient's or the doctor's best interest. While doctors should be aghast at the further erosion of the rights, I believe that many or even MOST young pediatricians will be HAPPY to blame the system and to shunt the decision to someone else. "Sorry, Mom, out of my hands. (Insert sad face.) Now roll up your son's sleeve."
CA SB276: Existing law prohibits the governing authority of a school or other institution from admitting for attendance any pupil who fails to obtain required immunizations within the time limits prescribed by the State Department of Public Health. Existing law exempts from those requirements a pupil whose parents have filed with the governing authority a written statement by a licensed physician to the effect that immunization is not considered safe for that child, indicating the specific nature and probable duration of their medical condition or circumstances, including, but not limited to, family medical history.
This bill would instead require the State Department of Public Health, by July 1, 2020, to develop and make available for use by licensed physicians and surgeons a statewide standardized medical exemption request form, which, commencing January 1, 2021, would be the only medical exemption documentation that a governing authority may accept. The bill would require the State Public Health Officer or the public health officer’s designee to approve or deny a medical exemption request, upon determining that the request provides sufficient medical evidence that the immunization is contraindicated or that a specific precaution regarding a particular immunization exists, based on guidelines of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
A colleague shared her letter to the CA Medical Board with me, which inspired me to submit my own. I hope that you, too, will be encouraged to contact the CMB, requesting that board members withdraw their support for SB276. You can email your letter to:
Here is what I sent yesterday, and below it is a link to the letter by a colleague. Other colleagues have sent letters, too, and I hope that you will join us! Laura HayesSubject: SB276: Reasons to not support this bill
Dear Members of the CA Medical Board,
As the parent of 3 vaccine-injured children, now in their 20s, one of whom was severely and permanently disabled by his "routine" childhood vaccinations, I am writing to urge you to NOT support SB276.
The sponsor of this bill, Senator Richard Pan, is without honor or ethics:
During the first vaccine bill he sponsored, AB2109, he promised parents that they would continue to retain the right to make vaccination decisions for their children...after first paying for and then submitting to a lecture of personal opinion by a specified healthcare provider. He lied, as just a few years later, he sponsored SB277. This bill eliminated the Personal Beliefs Exemption (PBE), and de facto, the Religious Exemption (RE), which Governor Brown had added when signing AB2109 into law, leaving only the Medical Exemption (ME), thus eliminating a parent's right to make vaccination decisions for their children. In order to send one's child to public or private school in CA, and/or to daycare, one had to submit to and comply with numerous state vaccine mandates, or secure a difficult-to-obtain Medical Exemption (ME), completely eliminating a parent's right to make vaccination decisions for their children. During hearings for SB277, Senator Pan promised that doctors would have full and unhindered discretion to write MEs as they saw fit. He lied again, as just a few years later, he is now sponsoring SB276, which would eliminate doctor discretion, and instead, place ME decisions in the hands of a designated public health official. Thus, Senator Pan is not an honorable man. He lies to CA citizens and to fellow legislators. He makes promises, then breaks them.
Furthermore, he is not an ethical man. By trade, he is a pediatrician. What doctor would prescribe, and worse, mandate, scores of risk-laden, sometimes-fatal, invasive medical procedures, which have a long and sordid history of inducing harm, including death, and of failing, for millions of children in CA, whom he has never met, and about whom he knows nothing? That is unquestionably unethical behavior. It is also unethical to practice medicine without the full and complete utilization of informed consent. The prior, completely voluntary, and fully informed consent of the individual/parent is essential to the ethical practice of medicine. That is universally acknowledged, and there can be no denying that. Informed consent requires a formal opting in, and never a formal opting out. Nothing other than a simple "no thank you" should be required when one wants to decline or refuse any medical treatment or procedure for oneself or one's child. Vaccine mandates, in and of themselves, make the ethical practice of medicine impossible. Therefore, any doctor who supports/legislates/enforces vaccine mandates, which includes Senator Richard Pan, is not upholding or practicing ethical medicine.
Senator Pan has wrongly and unjustly accused fellow doctors of acting fraudulently when writing MEs for patients. In truth, and in accordance with the ethical practice of medicine, no doctor should ever refuse a parent who requests a ME for their child when that is the only remaining way for a parent to direct their child's healthcare as they see fit, which is their right, and when that is the only remaining way to protect their child from the known, and as yet unknown, dangers of vaccines, short of leaving the state of CA. The person acting fraudulently is Senator Pan. He lies to CA citizens and fellow legislators, as noted above. He tells dangerous lies when he speaks publicly, including telling those in the audience when he spoke at UC Berkeley's School of Public Health that "water is the most dangerous ingredient in vaccines." That statement alone should have caused the CA Medical Board to immediately revoke his license to practice medicine. He has told many other dangerous lies about vaccines, and about those who are not vaccinated in accordance with CDC recommendations, during hearings for AB2109, SB277, and SB276, during multiple interviews, and at UCB's School of Public Health, yet, the vast majority of his medical colleagues and the CA Medical Board have remained silent. Not calling him to the mat when he lies, and when he wrongly accuses colleagues of fraudulent behavior, jeopardizing their licenses, careers, and reputations, and continuing to permit him to practice medicine are wrong. He is a danger, and he should not be allowed near children. (Ask yourself if you would want your 12 year-old, now permitted by AB499 to consent to HPV and HepB vaccines without parental knowledge or consent, to see Dr. Richard Pan without you present.)
There is nothing in SB276 worth supporting, as neither doctors nor the state should have any say in parents making vaccination decisions for their children. Vaccination decisions belong solely to parents and legal guardians. What the CA Medical Board should be doing is loudly and publicly denouncing SB276 and its predecessors SB277, AB2109, and AB499, in addition to denouncing Senator Richard Pan, and working to strip him of his license to practice medicine.
