Just a word to the wise....I've been wresting with this whole skin test for tb they told me was mandatory this last year. After doing considerable research, I wanted to let everyone know who thinks there is a certain sanctity about your body and who thinks that it's wrong for the government to forcibly inject anything into your body, that the law--the statute which requires all children entering school for the first time, and seventh graders to have the tb skin test (that the school district is always quoting), doesn't exist! The law was repealed I believe in 2004. If you look under the state statute webpage (not the www.touchngo.com one), but the actual updated http://www.legis.state.ak.us/basis/folio.asp that you can look up under the court system, you will not find anything about a required tb test. You will find plenty on vaccinations and what's required if you don't vaccinate, but not one word on tb testing. The administrative code is still in effect, but unless there's a statute (the actual law) to back the code (how they enforce the law) they can't legally make you do it for your child to attend school. We are being fed a line! Don't buy it. Some company is making a ton of money off the manufacturing of the protein tests and another company is making even more money for producing the six month round of antibiotics they force you to take when your test results are "positive". It's amazing how many people are allergic to the protein (surprise, surprise) but since they can't tell the difference between an allergic reaction and an actual positive result, your kid gets the "benefit" of the doubt! Make everyone aware! There is no law! Even OSHA requires that an exemption be provided for tb testing and the hep b vaccine if people don't want to take either. They will tell you all day long its the law, you don't need to cite them any webpages or give them any information, just tell them to provide you the statute that says it's mandatory. They have the burden of proof.
