New legislation in Arizona is going to require you to see a medical doctor if you do not want to have your kids vaccinated. Currently in Arizona, if you do not want your kids vaccinated, all you have to do is sign a personal waiver, and this will allow your kids to go to any public school, and legally gives you a waiver for no vaccinations. As parents are becoming more aware of the dangers of vaccinations, the number of parents that have signed the waiver has doubled in the past ten years. My guess is that pharmaceutical and medical doctors are losing a lot of money because of this. Sue Brage, the executive director of the Arizona Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics states: ” the intent is to start curbing the number of people who get exemptions.” The law being proposed is by Rep. Cecil Ash, R-Mesa, who introduced this bill at the last minute, just minutes before the deadline for new bills. This law would require a parent who does not want to have their child immunized, go to a medical doctor to have the waiver exemption. The bill does not allow parents to go to a Chiropractic physician, a Naturopathic physician or any other physician who generally does not agree with the current allopathic model of health. Now lets be realistic. Does anyone honestly feel that they could get the right guidence for their concerns about vaccinations when the only doctor they are allowed to see is one who thinks that vaccinations should be mandatory and who directly benefits financially from this decision.
This is just the beginning of Arizonans losing their rights. What next? If we do not vaccinate our kids, do parents go to jail? Do we get fined hundreds, thousands of dollars?
