Is that what this bill, which wasn’t even put to a vote, does?
Is There a Plan to Send Unvaccinated People to Concentration Camps to Be Force Vaccinated?
Of course it doesn’t!
“Relates to the removal of cases, contacts and carriers of communicable diseases that are potentially dangerous to the public health.”
Anything about forced vaccination?
Just the part that goes out of its away to reassure folks that it doesn’t allow forced vaccination!
The bill, which never made it out of committee, wasn’t even about unvaccinated people.
It was about being able to manage people who have contagious diseases, who might be a danger to the public, either because they refuse to stay in quarantine, get treatment, or have contacts that refuse public health orders to get treatment.

Why would anyone go visit a new doctor just to get their child a medical exemption for vaccines?
Shouldn’t they just get the medical exemption from their regular pediatrician?
Who Should Write Your Child’s Medical Exemption for Vaccines?
As lawmakers in California debate passage of a new vaccine bill, SB277, which would put help stop doctors from writing fraudulent medical exemptions, we are learning more and more about what are thought to be fake MEs and the doctors who write them.
“The exemption practices of three doctors in the records have already come under investigation by California authorities, and many are on lists of “vaccine-flexible” pediatricians circulated online by anti-vaccine parents. Three exemptions were signed by a doctor in New Jersey, and a fourth by one in Florida.”
California’s vaccine battle: Here are the doctors behind Bay Area students’ medical exemptions
One of these doctors practices at an anti-aging clinic, so it doesn’t seem like they are the regular primary-care physicians for these kids getting exemptions.
“SB277 did not substantially change the granting of medical exemptions by physicians, which expected and anticipated that each child would be evaluated by a physician who regularly cared for that child and receiving the exemption applying the standard of care.
Instead, after passage of SB277, we witnessed physicians who advertised exemptions for cash on social media and the internet. Some parents posted that their child’s physician refused to grant their child a medical exemption, so they bought one from a distant physician.”
Richard Pan SB 277 Assembly Health Committee Testimony
And that’s why a state without non-medical exemptions continues to have schools with fewer than 50% of the kids vaccinated.
Doctors who think that they are “vaccine experts” are granting kids medical exemptions because they think that everything is a vaccine injury. Or that a family history of something that they think is a vaccine injury qualifies a child for a medical exemption.
“I’ll tell you what I do personally is I charge the same amount of money for a patient who I see for a medical exemption as I do for new patients coming in to me for a check up or a consultation. I don’t charge any more. In fact, my medical exemption appointments are actually two appointments. I don’t make any more money from medical exemption appointments as anything else.”
Bob Sears SB 277 Assembly Health Committee Testimony
Most of us don’t make any money from medical exemption appointments…
“And just to follow up – is there some other… back to the idea of a specialist in this. Could there be some other standard in which a specialist could do more of these?”
Chad Mayes SB 277 Assembly Health Committee Testimony
There are certainly situations in which a specialist will be the one writing the medical exemption.
Is your child getting chemotherapy for ALL? Then his oncologist might be the one to write the exemption.
Did your infant get immunoglobulin to treat Kawasaki disease? Then her cardiologist might write a temporary medical exemption for live vaccines.
Does your child have infantile spasms? Then his neurologist might write a temporary medical exemption for DTaP.
Why Are Medical Exemption Visits a Thing?
In most situations though, it would be your pediatrician who would write the exemption.
“When we passed SB 277, again as we mentioned, we didn’t really touch the medical exemption, but what our expectation was is that it’s going to be your child’s regular doctor who knows the child granting them… And what we’re seeing is that actually we have physicians… who are not really the primary care doctor.
I mean I find this idea of having medical exemption visits kind of intriguing because you shouldn’t really have medical exemption visits. Either you’re the doctor or you’re not. If you’re the doctor you should take care of them. You have that relationship and if they have an issue with vaccines, you write them the exemption.
That’s it. That’s what’s supposed to normally happen. People shouldn’t be going out finding other doctors for exemptions. If you happen to see a specialist, and they think you can’t get vaccinated safely, then they either submit the exemption or they tell your primary care doctor, by the way, that child should not get vaccinated, we should get an exemption. That’s how it should normally work.”
Richard Pan SB 277 Assembly Health Committee Testimony
Of course, medical exemptions to get vaccines are not very common though. If your pediatrician refuses to give your child a medical exemption, it is likely because they don’t need one.
Remember, medical exemptions for vaccines should be for kids who can’t be vaccinated, not just because you’re scared or don’t want your child to be vaccinated.

If you use the same anti-vaccine math, in the 1950s, they actually got at least 22 doses by age 9 or 10! And they got even more once the polio vaccine was introduced in 1955.
Anti-vaccine folks still try to downplay the number of doses of vaccines folks got back in the 1950s and 1960s though.
To scare you.
Kids do get more vaccines, but they have far fewer antigens, and more vaccines means more protection against more diseases.
In the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, kids were dying of diseases that are now vaccine preventable, including rotavirus, hepatitis A and B, chicken pox, pneumococcal meningitis, epiglottitis, Hib meningitis, and meningococcal meningitis, etc.
Did New York Declare Medical Martial Law over a Measles Outbreak?
As most folks know, Rockland County Executive Ed Day made an emergency declaration banning unvaccinated kids from public places.
I guess because he was anticipating a freak-out from anti-vaccine folks, he went out of his way to say that the emergency declaration does not mean that law enforcement will be asking for vaccine records and that they are just trying to get the attention of parents, some of whom weren’t cooperating when their kids were sick.
So what was the reaction?
About as you would expect…
Medical martial law? An emergency declaration saying you will get a class B misdemeanor if your unvaccinated kid goes to the mall is the same thing as martial law? Ordinary laws have been suspended and the military is taking over?
If you listened to the press conference, the problem isn’t really that we need new laws, it is that some folks aren’t cooperating with existing ones. Again, in the middle of the longest outbreak in recent history, some parents who have kids sick with measles aren’t talking to health department officials who simply want to control and stop the outbreak.
What else is wrong with the Natural News post?
Of course, it is the stuff about shedding and “improperly weakened viral strains.”
In truth, measles outbreaks are started when unvaccinated folks travel out of the country, get measles, and bring it back to a community with a lot of other unvaccinated people. And tragically, sometimes folks who are too young to be vaccinated or who have true medical contraindications to getting vaccinated get caught up in these outbreaks.
Did they listen to the press conference? When did he say that they would be going door-to-door?
Is it actually legal to tell folks to riot and incite them to open civil disobedience?
Surpriginsly, most went to straight to comments about Hitler and concentration camps.
These are the leaders and heroes of the anti-vaccine movement.
To be clear, rabbis in the community have been telling folks to get vaccinated and protected!
“Whoever isn’t vaccinated is a murderer” reads a rabbinic letter recently signed by leading charedi rabbis in Israel, according to Yeshiva World News. The kol koreh was distributed after a spread of Measles in the ultra-Orthodox communities in Israel and around the world. Earlier this month an unvaccinated infant died, and more than 1300 people have been infected with a preventable disease. The Gedolim who signed the Kol Koreh include: Rav Yitzchak Silberstein, Rav Shimon Ba’adani, Rav Sriel Rosenberg, Rav Moshe Shaul Klein Rav Menachem Mendel Lubin.
As Measles Spread, Leading Charedi Rabbis Come Out Strongly Against Anti-Vaxxers
I wonder what the people in these communities would think of all of this holocaust imagery that anti-vaccine folks are using to try and keep the outbreaks going?
