Any of you Mommies in California aware of Bill SB277 and what are your thoughts? This is the mandatory vaccination btw.

Although I'm not from California and my daughter is fully vaccinated, to take away anyone's choice is unconstitutional and to force medical treatment on anyone is also unconstitutional. For me this is not a vaccine vs non vaccine issue it is a civil rights issue and my rights as a parent to make medical decisions with my doctor for what is best for my child. Medical decisions should not be in the hands of the government but in the hands of parents.

It shouldn't be mandatory. But children that aren't vaccinated shouldn't be allowed in schools/day care etc.

I agree with Ashley people Gould have the choice of vaccinating but other parents shouldn't have to deal with the repercussions of other parents decisions and children who aren't vaccinated should not be allowed in schools and daycares. There's a reason we don't have to deal with the diseases we vaccinate for and it's the vaccinations!

Just curious, does anybody know how it applies to children who can't get vaccinated because of allergies and stuff? I agree that it shouldn't be mandatory to vaccinate but at the same time, school is somewhere that is supposed to be safe.

@holley, I read the bill (don't live in California, just curious) and kids with medical reasons are exempt

It shouldn't be mandatory. But kids shouldn't be allowed to enroll in school or daycare without them.

Why are you all worried about kids being in school and day care if they aren't vaccinated? If your children are vaccinated they should be protected from anything that could be transmitted right? Also if they aren't allowed in school that is taking away their right to be educated.. One more civil liberty being violated.

They prevent kids from going to school if they don't have their TB shot and I think one other. Why shouldn't it be for all vaccines?

And Jocelyn children can't get some vaccines until a certain age, so if a baby is at a day care with an older child who doesn't have his vaccines they are exposing they younger child to that disease.

Because when my daughter is in daycare without a certain vaccination and an older kid who is old enough to get the vaccination doesn't have it that could have it, it could get my daughter severely sick. Why are you being so sour?

I have 2 kids fully vaccinated and my last one is not so far. It wasn't until I started researching vaccines when I decided not to do my last child. You can go to the government website and see all the ingredients for vaccines they are horrifying, formaldehyde, aluminum, calf serum, beef serum, half of the things I had to look up because I didn't know what they were. My friends DD had a adverse reaction and had seizures from her hepB vaccine. She's now opt out. Aside from the vaccines (cont)

I don't think it's very constitutional that we are having rights stripped away from us which is the big picture. So much for the land of the free.

.. But why should it be up to the less popular choice to keep out of public areas? It worries me having basic rights taken away in this country is all. I say each parent should be able to make medical decisions for their own child. Anyway.. To each their own.. 😀

Oddly enough it use to be your 2 choices for not vaccinating your child and having them attend public school was 1) for religious reasons or 2) for medical reasons. So many children don't fall into either of those categories, but their parents lie in order to get them into school. Lying about reasons for not vaccinating should never be okay. The fact that so many parents have lied is what's causing this to be an issue in the first place.

I agree parents should be able to make choices for their own children but not vaccinating your children and having them around mine is making medical choices for me as well. My children will be vaccinated as soon as they are old enough to receive them but until them I'm counting on you to vaccinate yours

I'm a first time Mom and my grief with this is with the pharmaceutical companies producing unsafe vaccines because they are not being held accountable for their products. As it stands, the money paid out to the vaccine injured are coming out of our hard earned tax dollars.

As far as personal experience goes, I started suffering from chronic migraines from the age of 11 yrs old and I remember clearly that's when my Mom took me in to get my shots up to date for middle school. To this day I still suffer from migraines at least once a week lasting 2-3 days only if I'm lucky. The cost of my prescription per pill is $255.00. I now have a beautiful, healthy baby girl...she has half my genetics and who's to say she won't be as sensitive to vaccines like I am.
