NY Take Action: Assemblymember Paulin is at it again
STD/HPV shots without parental knowledge or consent

    Assemblymember Amy Paulin has yet again re-introduced her bill (A973) that will allow children of any age to obtain vaccines for sexually-transmitted diseases hepatitis B is licensed for people of any age, Gardasil for human papilloma virus is licensed for people older than 9) without parental knowledge or consent. The main selling point for this vaccine is that it claims to prevent cervical cancer, yet it would be required for boys as well.

     This bill is a backdoor way to increase the flagging sales of Merck's Gardasil, the only HPV vaccine available in the US. When Gardasil was first rolled out on the market a very aggressive and well-funded effort was made to make this new and poorly tested vaccine mandatory to attend school in every state. Fortunately, this unprecedented effort failed everywhere except Rhode Island and Washington, DC.  But Paulin keeps trying.

    Please call Assemblymember Paulin and politely request that she withdraw the bills:

Assemblymember Amy Paulin, District: (914) 723-1115, Albany: 518-455-5585

     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, 5,989 hospitalizations, and 2,832 permanent disabilities. And according to former head of the FDA Dr. David Kessler these injuries are probably less than 10% of the actual number. The safety record for HPV vaccines is so dismal that Japan no longer recommends it for their citizens.

     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, and they need to know whether they have allergies or sensitivities to vaccine ingredients, and they need to know whether there is a family medical history that would contra-indicate a shot. A nine-year old, or younger, child will know this?

     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.

     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?

     There are more than 200 school-based clinics in the state of NY that could give a child vaccine without a parent’s knowledge. And there is nothing in the law that prevents children from “consenting” to experimental vaccines.
