6. Vaccine Mandates are Coercive
If all vaccines were safe, effective, and necessary, people would line up for them at any price. All 50 states mandate vaccines for daycare and school admission via police power authority precisely because vaccines do not meet those criteria. Enforcing mandates and withholding information about legal exemptions -- or in Mississippi's case, habitually denying doctor's requests for medical exemptions for already vaccine-injured children -- is a sign of the failure of the childhood vaccination program. Because of this, it is completely necessary that parents be given options regarding our government's ever-growing, compulsory childhood vaccination schedule.
Industry spokespeople argue that vaccines are like seat belts and must be mandated to keep people safe. Vaccines are serious medicine. Vaccines are an invasive medical procedure done on healthy children. Our government compels virtually all children to get vaccinated knowing that some will die or sustain grievous harm. Children who are not fully vaccinated are denied daycare and a public or private education.
Vaccines are nothing like seat belts.
