Children Vaccines
1) The state should move from a mandatory, one size all vaccination schedule to one that allows parents to decide which vaccines their child receives or does not receive. Where there is risk, there must be choice. At a minimum, the regulations should be amended to include a definition of informed consent. 
2) The right to a medical exemption must be protected- this option should completely be allowed. 
The regulation should be strengthened to protect an individual’s right to a medical exemption.   
3) The state should not require vaccines for children taught at home 
Regulations requiring vaccinations for children taught at home are an overreach of the state’s authority and infringe on the rights of parents. There is no reason my child should be required to get any vaccines, especially if they are not exposed to most of the things because they’re home. 
4) The COVID-19 vaccines should not be added to the vaccine schedule
There is now ample evidence that the COVID-19 vaccines are associated with heart inflammation and other side effects. Myocarditis and pericarditis are inflammatory conditions that can lead to cardiac arrhythmia and death. There is also ample evidence that the shots do not prevent transmission. Again, where this is risk there must be choice. This vaccine should remain voluntary.
