The State Legislature  has extended the deadline by 60 days.  There is not enough $ to put nurses in the school to deliver the jabs and not enough personnel to process it all.

 

If there were a true emergency and the vaxes really worked, there would be no extension.

The extension is actually 30 days. A student can attend the first 30 days of the 2011-2012 school year without showing proof of the Tdap vaccine or turning in exemption paperwork. The bill, SB 614, was recently passed, and is awaiting the governor's signature.

The hospital's flu vaccine goal was 75% which is pretty interesting considering those are the people who supposedly love all vaccines and their GOAL was only 75% vaccinated...

That is pretty interesting.  Most of our friends work in hospitals and are therefore heavily pro-vax.  But it's actually written in as a condition of their employment that they recieve ALL vaxes or they could be terminated.  So waivers are not even an option (unless it was medically warranted) because they sign an agreement when they are hired.
