State to Require New Vaccinations for 6th-12th Graders: What Do You Think?

Do you think the state of Illinois should require students to receive the Tdap booster shot in order to remain in school?

The Illinois State Board of Health has approved new recommendations from the Illinois Department of Public Health and The Illinois Department of Education to require all sixth through twelfth grade students to have an additional vaccination.

The students will now need to show proof of receiving the Tdap booster shot. The vaccine immunizes against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis.

“We’ve seen an increase in pertussis, or whooping cough, in Illinois during the last six years. Medical experts have found whooping cough has been on the rise in pre-teens and teens, indicating a waning immunity from infant and childhood immunizations,” said Illinois Department of Public Health Director Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck in a press release.

Last year, Illinois required sixth and ninth grade students to receive the vaccine.

Students must either show proof of having received this vaccination, must have an appointment to get the vaccine or have an approved medical or religious exemption on file. Students who do not meet one of these three conditions by Oct. 15, 2013, will not be allowed to attend school until they do. For the sixth and ninth graders who already got the vaccine, they do not need to get another shot, but do need to show proof of being vaccinated previously.

Do you think the state of Illinois should be telling us how to vaccinate our children? Do you think it’s fair that those who refuse vaccinations will not be allowed to attend school? Tell us in the comments section.

The information is public on the NIH library. Anyone can figure this out. Like I said most MD's are completely ignorant. They don't bother to red the studies and they don't understand methodology. PHD's typically can ascertain what the h is going on in studies in regards to bias. Either way, the whooping cough outbreaks as well as the mumps and measles outbreaks we have been seeing are in fully vaccinated populations, not the unvaccinated. in fact, for some reason, the unvaccinated tend to be spared in these outbreaks. there are academic papers called "the paradox of measels" and others explaining why it is those vaccinated against pertussis that seem to carry pertussis and contract the disease. they are colonized with para pertussis when vacc against bordatella pertussis. the mumps outbreaks arebecause Mercks' MMR does not protect against wild mumps, only the vaccine strain and even then, the antibodies are very short lived. There is a tort case against MErck for falsifying the mumps aspect of their MMR.

Hey ronnie I have the medical report showing the high aluminum in son and every time we take for a treatment to remove these aluminum his autism gets better. So ronnnie if you don't have a clue about the ingredients in vaccines shut up. If you have not lost child to autism after vaccines shut up.

I am sorry for your child's autism, but aluminum has nothing to do with it. What is this treatment you go to to remove the aluminum? Is it provided by a medical doctor? No, it is not. I am sure you keep paying for the treatment right? Sorry you are getting scammed. The whole vaccine and autism debate has long be solved, except for amongst a few people desperate for treatments. I wish that those in the anti-vaccine camp would donate all the money they spend to real research by accredited professionals amongst the mainstream.

a medical conference I attended two weeks ago spent a whole day just on aluminum toxicity, and it was unanimously agreed that vaccines were a big culprit. I am at a conference now in DC which is all about pharma corruption at the academic and journal level including vaccines. and next week is the annual conference in aluminum adjuvant toxicity, in England

The approved fda treatment for heavy metal toxicity, Proscribed by a medical doctor gives a little bit my son back to me with every treatment. So no, no wired vodo treatments pure science. so ronnie why don't come back and talk after you get an ingridents to all childhood or even just some. look into way in 1980 birth to six year of age a child recieved 10 shots and now they need 38 shots by six years old. so aluminum has a lot to do with autism. three atopscies done autisic children all showed heavy metal toxicity in the brain. please watch "the greater good" i will even send you the six dollars for the digital download.
