I know this is long, but its' a very important issue. Please take time to read carefully, and forward this alert from the New York Alliance for Vaccination Choice to everyone you know in New York and post it to your different email lists asking others to do the same. These bills are horrible and need to be stopped there so they don't show up in other states. Act quickly as the vote is on Tuesday for one of them.

Key Talking Points:

Oppose S4779 and A6702 which permit ALL present and future vaccines and drugs for sexually transmitted diseases to be given to New York children WITHOUT parental consent

· These bills remove parental rights for all New York parents

· If a child has a drug or vaccine reaction, the parents won't know what is happening or how to help

· These bills apply to ALL children - there is NO lower age limit

· A child has a limited capacity to understand pharmaceutical drug and vaccine risks and identify side effects they may experience, this is a SEVERE violation of the principles of Informed Consent for minors, which requires parental involvement in medical treatments (and participation in research)

· Unknown vaccine administrators don't know the child's medical history, vaccine contraindications, allergies, and past vaccine reactions

· Children unknowingly are giving up their legal rights when asking for a vaccine because Federal law (PL 99-660) removes liability from vaccine manufacturers and doctors for injuries and deaths caused by vaccines

· The HPV vaccine, which this bill would include, has already been associated with thousands of reactions and dozens of deaths

· The open ended language allows for any future vaccines for STDS to be given without parental knowledge or consent - coming soon and already in the research pipeline are vaccines for Syphilis, gonorrhea and HIV

Oppose A0778 which legally forces the controversial and sometimes dangerous vaccine for the sexually transmitted virus Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) on 6th grade New York schoolchildren

· New York's vaccine exemption laws are inadequate and don't allow a parent to refuse this vaccine if they don't want it for their child

· Safety issues: thousands of young girls have experienced serious vaccine reactions

· Not Necessary: Less than 1% of all cancer deaths are from cervical cancer, cervical cancer is preventable by regular screenings, and 90% of women who contract HPV clear the virus on their own

· Efficacy Questions: While shown effective in preventing genital warts in adults, clinical trials were conducted on fewer than 2,000 girls aged 9 to 15 years old and the studies were far too short to show that the vaccine even prevents the HPV transforming into cancer

· Cost Issues: This is one of the most expensive on the market ($360 for 3 doses not including administration fees) costing taxpayers millions of dollars for the Medicaid reimbursements to fulfill the requirements of this mandate'

Please Act NOW: The Codes Committee vote on S4779 is this Tuesday February 9th. Let your New York State lawmakers know these bills are unacceptable!
