Vaccine choice is YOUR choice – both at school and at work.
Everyone should have the right to make their own healthcare choices.
Vaccine mandates interfere with that choice, and set a precedent for other unwanted medical interventions. Mandates also interfere with your ability to receive individualized medical care due the one-size-fits-all protocol.
Vaccine Exemptions: Fact vs. Fiction
Do you hold one of these common assumptions about vaccine exemptions? Find out now and learn if your assumption is correct.
Medical exemptions are easy to get after a vaccine injury.
Most people assume that if a child or adult has an adverse reaction to a vaccine, they will automatically qualify for a medical exemption. However, despite Michigan state law granting discretion for medical exemptions for children to a treating physician, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) often interferes with the doctor-patient relationship, and it usurps state law by limiting medical exemptions pursuant to standardized guidelines that do not account for a person's unique genetic makeup or a treating physician's expert opinion. CDC standardized guidelines regarding vaccine exemptions are even more stringent for adults than children.
Vaccines are not required if the person has immunity.
A person may still need to obtain a vaccine exemption, sometimes referred to as a vaccine "waiver," even if they have immunity to the disease that the vaccine is targeting. Chicken pox is a good example: a parent or guardian would still need to obtain a vaccine exemption for school regarding the varicella vaccine even if the child previously had chicken pox and is therefore immune. Note that while a titer test (to prove immunity) is not required for school, it may be requested by an employer. A school may also require a titer test in the event of an outbreak; if a titer test is not provided, the school may attempt to exclude the student
Vaccines are required to attend school in Michigan.
Vaccines are not required Pre-k thru 12th grade for children to attend public or non-public schools. Many people are not fully informed about their rights to avoid, delay or selectively vaccinate in Michigan. While true that certain vaccinations are required to attend school in Michigan, state law provides exemptions to mandatory vaccinations for medical, religious or other reasons per Statute §333.9215.
