NY Take Action: STD shots w/o parental consent bill could pass

     There are still three legislative session days left before the New York legislature goes home for the remainder of the year. And there is plenty of damage that still could be done. Senator Liz Kruger's bill S3899a, that would allow shots for hepatitis b and Gardasil for HPV for minors without parental knowledge or consent, already passed in the Senate Health Committee (with 100% support from the Democrats and none from the Republicans.) That could be put on the floor of the Senate and passed at any time in the next three days.
     Not all the legislators oppose vaccine rights, 26 Senators voted against the bill to repeal the religious exemption, and 66 Assemblymembers did not vote for repeal.
     And as we saw on Thursday, if the Assembly Health Committee gets orders from Speaker Carl Heastie to pass the companion bill in the Assembly, Asm. Amy Paulin's A973a, they would do it in a heartbeat.

Talking Points:
     Children do not know enough about their own medical history to consent, It is absurd to assume that a child of any age knows enough about their own medical history and the medical history of their family to provide informed consent. They must know if they had earlier adverse reactions to vaccines given to them as infants, whether they have allergies or sensitivities to vaccine ingredients, or if there is a family medical history that would contra-indicate a shot. A nine-year old, or younger, child will know this?
   Gardasil has a terrible safety record, According to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System there have been 60,179 reported adverse incidents with HPV vaccines, including 439 deaths, 15,397 emergency room visits, 5989 hospitalizations, and 2,832 permanent disabilities.  And according to Dr. David Kessler, who was the head of the FDA under Presidents George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, these injuries are probably less than 10% of the actual number. The safety record for HPV vaccines is so troubling that Japan ended their recommendation of HPV vaccination for Japanese girls in 2014.
     Merck is charged with submitting fraudulent documents in the licensing process, A lawsuit is under way in California, Robi v. Merck, that alleges Merck, the manufacturer of Gardasil, submitted fraudulent safety and efficacy data to the federal government during the licensing process.
     The bill protects pedophiles, This bill also provides protection to pedophiles by subverting New York’s  “Mandated Reporter” law that requires licensed professionals to report suspected sexual abuse of children.  What rational person would not suspect something was very wrong if a nine-year old requested an injection that purports to prevent a sexually-transmitted disease?
     Who decides who can decide? A person giving the shot, who may have a financial incentive to do so, is allowed to use whatever reasons they want to determine if a minor is capable of giving consent. Nor is there any language to prevent shots from being given to minors with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
     How can a parent make informed healthcare choices for their child? In the event of an adverse reaction, especially if a child is unconscious, how is a parent, first responder, or other healthcare professionals supposed to provide appropriate medical care to the child?
     Nothing prevents children from consenting to experimental vaccines, There is nothing in the law that prevents children from “consenting" to experimental vaccines.
     STDs are not transmissible in school, As a sexually transmitted disease there is no chance that HPV can be transmitted via casual contact at school, or anywhere else.
   Efficacy of Gardasil is in doubt, We also do not have solid evidence that vaccines actually prevent cervical cancer, which takes decades to develop and we have no solid data on how long the vaccine is allegedly effective.
