Guess we need to have our heads up tomorrow to see how this finally plays out.

This website sums it up nicely.  Basically, we still have our exemption, but now have to do extra paperwork every year for it.

Ok, cool. I won't sign anything that I don't believe in. If there really is something I have to sign that states that I understand I am putting others at risk by choosing not to vaccinate....I don't believe that so I won't sign it.

My understanding is that it may be possible to legally challenge the paperwork, depending on how it reads.  (Eg. if it is not factual.)   I'm not sure if anyone knows the exact language yet, but Vermont Coalition for Vaccine Choice might.  It would be great if we could coordinate responses for maximum impact.

 

Three cheers for Vermont Coalition for Vaccine Choice!   A number of members basically gave up their day jobs and lived at the state house for a couple months. They pulled off a job that was looking impossible at the beginning of the session.   I am so grateful.
