Buffalo New York: New York’s repeal of vaccine exemptions creates unintended consequences

New yorkNote: One might go so far as to call the unintended consequences "side effects...."   Perhaps we should alert the VAERS?

Correct me if I am wrong, but did this law also create a crackdown on ALL students' medical records, so that any student not fully vaccinated was flagged and contacted, not JUST students with a religious vaccination?  Was this law pushed through to create an instant DEMAND for vaccines? Were sales lagging? Not enough kids in the special ed system? Stocks piling up and doctors were Marie Kondo'ing the shelves?  WHAT?  If a child has an RE, Mom and Dad have particular and personal reasons for not vaccinating per the CDC schedule. I can not imagine these parents racing to the pediatrician for up to "catch up."  So why the "sudden" lack of availability?  If New Yorkers who know could chime in, please do so. 

New York’s repeal of vaccine exemptions creates unintended consequences

WIVB TV,  BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)–Keing Taylor, 11, loves school–his favorite subject is math–but the Buffalo third grader has been sitting home all week because the two medical clinics where he went to get vaccinated were out the vaccine he needed.

One of the clinics told Keing’s mom, Rebecca Graves, they could not get a fresh supply of the vaccine until November, “He can’t be out of school until November 4. He is a high honor student.”

New York’s crackdown on school immunizations has led to unintended consequences, like Keing’s, for thousands of students across the state.

When state lawmakers repealed religious exemptions families had been using to avoid state mandated immunizations, earlier this year, they also set a hard 14-day time limit for students to get vaccinated.

As those grace periods have expired, school districts have started sending un-vaccinated students home because their medical caregivers were unprepared for a last-minute crush.

State health officials have said there is no shortage of the required vaccines, it is a matter of getting the medications to the practicioners.

Buffalo Public Schools started turning kids away Monday, when their grace period expired, and BPS Chief of Staff Darren Brown said school officials could see the surge coming.

“A week prior to that, which was [September]16th we had a little over 5,000 students that were not in compliance.”

When the pending calamity became abundantly clear, Brown said the District marshalled all hands on deck, coordinating state health efforts to get the needed vaccines to local medical facilities.

“Our nursing staff, our social workers–all of our staff–worked really, really hard to assist parents in getting the proper records in, making sure they had their appointments with their primary care physician.”

Brown said many of the children’s health clinics seem to be left “out of the loop,” with state health officials, and now that deficit of 5,000 un-vaccinated students from two weeks ago is down to about 1,500.

Those coordinated efforts have apparently shortened the time it is taking the local health facilities to stock up on vaccines.

School officials are now advising parents whose children are barred from school to contact their primary health care provider to arrange their vaccinations immediately.

Wonder how much money the schools lost because of this idiotic fast pushed through mandate. I hope lots. I wonder how many parents lost their jobs and how many employers were harmed. I hope to God this radicalized people and they realize how insanely stupid this was. Not only to do it but to rush it. What’s the rush? Is this just an experiment? To see how fast a new vaccine could get deployed? Think of it—a quickly rush-created accidentally contaminated vaccine could have killed or given narcolepsy etc to thousands of kids in 2 weeks before anyone woke up to it. How can public health take a chance like this? Drs are not even trained to notice adverse events. If something happened that took 3 weeks to show up this couldn’t be catastrophic. True scientists and health professionals do not take risks like this. Only reckless bought and controlled politicians—how much Pharma stock do they own? Who invested before this bill and is now enjoying spiked stock?

I am patiently awaiting the report of children who have suffered serious adverse reaction to 'catch up" vaccines .. hopefully SOMEONE has taken the responsibility to collect data on these children .. unfortunately that SOMEONE will have to rely on parents themselves as those who are supposed to collect and compile Adverse events .. pediatricians and VAERS .. have proven themselves to be UNRELIABLE.

What NYS legislators and Governor have done to parents is a clear violation of INFORMED CONSENT laws .. either these people recognize INFORMED CONSENT or they don't .. and by their actions .. it is clear they DON'T RECOGNIZE INFORMED CONSENT. In every election going forward .. INFORMED CONSENT SHOULD BE THE PRIMARY .. BASIC ISSUE A CANDIDATE MUST DECLARE.
