H5443 Philosophical Exemption bill

To restore personal or philosophical beliefs as a reason for immunization exemption.

H5443 restores the vaccination exemption for philosophical reasons to opt out of vaccines for school. There are many reasons why a family may choose to opt out of one particular vaccine (like HPV) or to delay a few vaccines, or decline entirely. The innate human right to refuse a pharmaceutical intervention may or may not include medical and/or religious reasons so it stands on its own merits. Parents/legal guardians should be deciding the best health practices for their children. These kinds of decisions should not be dictated by bureaucrats, politicians, media, doctors or societal pressures. They must be collaborative, with chosen consultants, and based on transparent, true informed consent recognizing inherent and unavoidable risks of liability-free interventions.
