As 2015 legislative session approaches Mississippi Parents for Vaccine Rights would like to begin a productive dialogue with our legislators in order to help you understand who we are, what our goals are, and why we are working so hard to get them accomplished.
WHO WE ARE
MPVR is a a fast-growing group of over two thousand loving educated families across Mississippi who seek the fundamental right to make medical decisions, specifically regarding vaccines, for our children without government coercion, discrimination, or interference.
We are NOT anti-vaccine. That is an unfair, false label. We have legitimate concerns and simply want the same options that parents in 48 other healthier states have. Most parents want to vaccinate their children, however, our children are each created as individuals and many parents would like the freedom to treat them as such.
Vaccination is currently a one-size-fits-all government program that started with good intention but has grown very profitable and out of control. Our children receive 49 doses of 14 vaccines before kindergarten. With a schedule this expansive, parents must have input. Vaccines are being added continually. Where will it stop? How many is too many for a given child?
