New Jersey Parents and Autism Advocates Demand Parental Right to Choose Vaccinations for Public School

blog_articles(N.J.)  Local parents, and vaccination choice and autism advocates are organizing meetings across the state.  At issue is the parental right to make decisions regarding their children’s health and education, including whether or not they are vaccinated as a condition of public school admission.  

Government says it knows best. A bill is moving in the legislature that will allow the state to challenge whether exemptions from mandatory immunizations for students are based on valid or genuine religious beliefs.  Parents are outraged and say this is unconstitutional. 

While Governor Christie has openly supported parental vaccination choice, former Governor Corzine enacted the first flu vaccine mandate in the nation, causing large numbers of New Jerseyans to protest.

The press is invited to the following meetings:

Monday, March 28 at 6:30 pm at 9th and Coles Tavern, 174 Coles Street, Jersey City

Thursday, March 31 at 7:00 pm at St. Teresa’s of Avila Memorial Hall, 306 Morris Ave, Summit

Friday, April 8 at 7:00 pm at Camp Jefferson, 81 Weldon Road, Lake Hopatcong

Sunday, May 15 at 1:00 pm at Hampton Inn, 370 Route 9 North, Woodbridge

Saturday, May 21 at 7:00 pm at ACS Education Culture Center, 146 US Hwy 1, Edison
