Four mandatory vaccine bills defeated in Florida.
Four separate vaccine bills have been withdrawn in the state of Florida.
Two mandatory vaccine bills concerning the controversial HPV vaccine have been pulled, along with two bills concerning vaccine databases.
In January, the Florida Senate and the House of Representatives were sent two identical bills which aimed to make the HPV vaccine mandatory in the area. These two bills have now been defeated.
The HPV vaccine is one of the newest, and most prevalent vaccines. It is given to almost all school girls under the age of 16, as a way of protecting against the HPV virus.
However, the vaccine as been met with opposition. There are countless horror stories concerning young girls who received the vaccine who were permanently injured.
The Independent report how ‘thousands’ of young girls report having adverse side effects after receiving the shot, and many have permanent injuries. Girls have reported feeling ‘severely ill’ after the shot and were unable to move their limbs.
Even more serious side effects have been reported like the onset of life-altering seizures after receiving the vaccine.
The second bills that were halted concerned the ability for parents to opt out of their children receiving certain vaccines.
In the U.K, parents are generally free to choose whether their child gets certain vaccines, on the advice of their doctor. However, in the U.S refusing to comply with certain state vaccine laws can land a parent in jail.
The government have been pushing for blanket laws across the country which would mean every single child must have the same vaccines.
But in reality, the situation is not this black and white. In the majority of cases, children are not adversely affected by vaccines, but in some cases they are.
There is virtually no program which seeks to find which children are more susceptible to succumbing to vaccine injury, and so each time a child is vaccinated, the parent runs the risk of damaging their health permanently.
One of the rejected bills in Florida was pushing for children to be ‘entered into a centralized database‘ which would track their every move. This way the government would have tabs on them at all times and force them to adhere to vaccine laws.
Many parents feel it is their choice whether their child should be vaccinated or not, and a small number of campaigners managed to successfully stop there utilitarian bills from being passed.
