The New York State Senate is about to vote on legislation that will give aschool nurse or doctor the power to vaccinate children under- age 18 yearsof age with controversial vaccines such as GARDASIL and Hep B-- WITHOUT parental "consent or knowledge." Sexually transmitted diseases are NOT communicable through casual contact. The Gardasil vaccine is engulfed in much controversy because it is not at all proven that its risk / benefit ratio favors children's welfare.
Indeed, the vaccine's period of effectiveness is unknown while mountingevidence shows that it poses serious risks for some children and young womenexposed to it.
See: The Risks and Benefits of HPV Vaccination by Charlotte Haug, MD, PhD,MSc JAMA. EDITORIAL. 2009; 302(7):795-796.
Not be ignored is Merck's record of aggressive, illegal marketing of drugs including the Gardasil vaccine: Merck is on record of having bribed state legislators to mandate Gardasil.
Let the NYS legislators below know that S4779B violates parental rights and responsibility to make health care decisions on behalf of their children. S4779B is BEYOND THE BOUNDS OF SCHOOL AUTHORITY.
Who will bear moral, medical, and financial responsibility should a child be harmed by a vaccine that was administered to a child WITHOUT parental knowledge or consent?

Subject: URGENT: info for religious or vaccine-aware parents
Friends: The following info is of critical importance to religious conservatives and/or parents who wish to have consent rights for vaccinations.
The NYS Senate Code Committee will vote on S4779B Tuesday (tomorrow) at 10:30 AM in the capitol blding. L
WHY is this bill bad?
It gives a school nurse or MD the power to vaccinate or treat (if infected) your under-18 year old child with STD vaccinations (Hep-B and GARDASIL) WITHOUT your "consent or knowledge."
It also seems flawed.
Are there provisions in state law that defines one who has a "capacity" to consent to a vaccination?
If not, then how can this law be implemented? And what would prevent a school nurse from vaxxing a 6 yr old student?
And how could a 6 yr old "consent" toobtaining a vaccine?
This is the applicable excerpt:
QUOTE This section also provides that a health care practitioner may provide health care related to the prevention of a sexually transmissible disease, including administering vaccines, to a person under age eighteen without the consent or knowledge of his or her parents or guardians, provided such person has capacity to, consent to the care, without regard to the person's age, and the-person consents. UNQUOTE
There are other problems with this bill. But here's the wording for you to judge:

Key Talking Points: Oppose S4779 and A6702 which permit ALL present and future vaccines and drugs for sexually transmitted diseases to be given to New York children WITHOUT parental consent
These bills remove parental rights for all New York parents
If a child has a drug or vaccine reaction, the parents won't know what is happening or how to help
These bills apply to ALL children - there is NO age limit
A child's has a limited capacity to understand pharmaceutical drug and vaccine risks and identify side effects they may experience
Unknown vaccine administrators don't know the child's medical history, vaccine contraindications, allergies, and past vaccinere actions
Children unknowingly are giving up their legal rights when asking for a vaccine because Federal QUESTIONS?
