Rochester, Minnesota schools began sending notes to parents in January threatening to remove children from classrooms if they could not provide proof that they had received government mandated vaccines. While some are applauding this controversial strong-arming method, many are furious over this nanny state behavior and being told to comply or face the consequences.
Minnesota requires several vaccines for students to be found in compliance including:
- Diptheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis (DTaP, DTP, DT)
- Pollo (IPV, OPV)
- Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR)
- Hepatitis B (hep B)
- Varicella (chickenpox)
- Meningococcal (MCV, MPSV)
They also recommend but do not require, Human Papillomavirus (HPV), Hepatitis A, and Influenza. Failure to receive even one of the necessary shots resulted in children being removed from class. It should be noted that Minnesota takes their cues on vaccines from federal “recommendations” developed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
As Americans are becoming more and more skeptical about vaccines, expect to see more decisions like this as Big Pharma and the CDC scramble to ensure new information does not affect their bottom line. “Big Pharma and the CDC have very profitably generated and then propagated the myth that their overpriced and very poorly researched vaccines are both effective and safe,” says Dr. Kohl, a retired physician who tries to sound the alarm on vaccine dangers. “The safety and efficacy of all vaccines has been disproven (including the 270 new ones that the industry is currently developing and planning to market), but the word has not broken through to the large clinics like the Mayo Clinic.” (RELATED: Get more vaccine related news at Vaccines.news)
Vaxxed, the breakout 2016 documentary about the life altering side effects of vaccines on children, has forced many parents to think twice before subjecting their kids to these possibly deadly cocktails of drugs, and that has shaken Big Pharma and the CDC to their core. In the film, Dr. William Thompson, a whistleblower from the CDC, revealed that feds deliberately concealed data showing a causal relationship between one of the listed required vaccines MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), and autism. The documentary and the experts interviewed in it argue that there is an “alarming deception” surrounding vaccines that have “contributed to the skyrocketing increase of autism and potentially the most catastrophic epidemic of our lifetime.”
The only alternative Rochester parents have at this point, aside from removing their kids from public school, is to file an exemption based on “conscientious objection,” but that is no easy task. Besides jumping through multiple legal hoops Parents must also fill out the proper form, and it must be notarized and then filed with authorities. Reportedly almost 400 students in Rochester public Schools are currently under the “conscientious objection” exemption, but it could be short-lived as the exemption is now in the crosshairs of pro-vaccine legislation.
Most of the media that have covered this story thus far use mostly pro-vaccine sources, and they do not mention why so many parents are against forced vaccinations for their children. Some people have even cheered the school systems decision and called for others districts and states to follow suit. But there are children stuck in the middle of all this, and parents that are trying to make the best decisions they can to ensure their kids live a healthy and happy life.
Minnesota law doesn’t provide clear guidance on how districts should enforce the law mandating vaccinations, officials said. A state attorney general did agree however that students “must be afforded some level of due process” before being excluded from school for not complying with vaccination requirements.
