The Wyoming Department of Health has new 2021 medical and religious exemption forms here. It gives info about the two waivers, including links to the updated May 2021 pdf forms.

The Religious waiver and the Medical waiver are each available in English or Spanish language at the above link.

On page 2 of the Religious Waiver Request pdf, about a third of the way down the page, it says:
I understand the risks and possible outcomes of my decision to exempt my child from the mandatory immunizations, which may include serious illness, disability or death.

The information I have provided on this form is complete and accurate. I acknowledge that I have read this document in its entirety and fully understand it.
Below that, the person filling out the waiver form must sign it and date it. If the person filling it out feels uncomfortable with signing the above statement, or any other statement on the form, any necessary changes can be made and initialed.

More may be learned at the Your Choice? Your Choice section of VacLib's exemption index web page.

Further information about this liability issue can be seen beginning with the "May 12, 2017, religious exemption form update" below and continuing in April 2018, on August 3, 2018, and on September 2, 2018.

Letter June 10th (2021), to the committee members in Wyoming state legislature.
The subject line of our email said:
Please support draft bill "Vaccine requirements-limitations" - letter from WVIN co-founders
June 9, 2021

Dear members of the Labor, Health, & Social Services Committee:

This letter is being written by Susan Pearce and Jacque Jones. We are the co-founders of Wyoming Vaccine Information Network, a group of concerned citizens who believe we all have God-given freedom to make health-care choices that no one can take away.

Thank you for taking the time to discuss the draft bill called "Vaccine requirements-limitations." Please support Representative Sue Wilson as its sponsor.

Most of this letter gives reasons for not coercing anyone to receive Covid-19 injections. However, because the draft bill is about all vaccines, we are first showing you the attached "Vac-Q Test for Legislators, Doctors, Nurses, School Board Members, and Parents" pdf document that was written by Laura Hayes. To see more of her information, please go to this page. https://www.ageofautism.com/editorials-from-laura-hayes.html

The attached document called "Covid-19 Vaccines: Important Talking Points" is a publication of the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF). http://www.westonaprice.org/coronavirus/

The attached "Top 10 Things You Should Know About COVID-19 Vaccines" pdf document was provided by Children's Health Defense. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/

The attached "5 Things You Should Know About the COVID-19 Vaccine" document is from https://www.visforvaccine.com/.

The attached "Covid-19 Remedies Showing Covid-19 Injections Are Not Needed" information was compiled in March 2021. It has been updated today, June 9, 2021.

If you believe the Covid-19 vaccines are necessary, did you know that the pharmaceutical companies are not liable for damages when people experience adverse reactions from their experimental products? See the fourth item in the attached document called "Covid-19 Vaccines: Important Talking Points." See #1 in the attached document called "Top 10 Things You Should Know About COVID-19 Vaccines." Additional sources: https://sharylattkisson.com/2021/05/vaccine-info-site-censored/ and https://www.visforvaccine.com/exempt.htm

Covid-19 injections are being fast-tracked, with no long-term studies. Vaccines are supposed to be studied for years so that people can be assured they are safe and will not cause health problems or death months and years from now. Instead, within months, these shots were given Emergency-Use Authorization (EUA), but not approval. No one should be coerced into taking these experimental products, since common sense tells us that none of them have gone through proper safety testing. https://www.fda.gov/emergency-preparedness-and-response/mcm-legal-regulatory-and-policy-framework/emergency-use-authorization See #4 in the attached document called "Top 10 Things You Should Know About COVID-19 Vaccines."

The Emergency Use Authorization information linked in the previous paragraph https://www.fda.gov/emergency-preparedness-and-response/mcm-legal-regulatory-and-policy-framework/emergency-use-authorization says:

...FDA may authorize unapproved medical products or unapproved uses of approved medical products to be used in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions caused by CBRN threat agents when certain criteria are met, including there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives.

According to multiple physicians and scientists, there are many adequate, approved, and available alternatives that are safe and effective for healing and preventing serious health issues with regard to Covid-19 disease. These men and women make it clear that the Covid-19 injections are not needed.

The attached document titled "Covid-19 Remedies Showing Covid-19 Injections Are Not Needed" begins with this entry:

Title: Global HCQ/CQ studies - June 8, 2021 - @CovidAnalysis - 226 page pdf document https://c19hcq.com/c19study.pdf This document contains many instances of hydroxychloroquine, chloroquine, ivermectin, azithromycin, zinc, vitamin C, vitamin D, and other products.

Please see that attachment for further information.

Drug companies have failed in their previous attempts to make products that are similar to the current Covid-19 injections. See #3 in the attached document called "Top 10 Things You Should Know About COVID-19 Vaccines."

The coronavirus injections cannot accurately be called vaccines since vaccines are products that prevent infection and prevent transmissibility to others. Concerning prevention of infection, see the first and the third items in the attached document called "Covid-19 Vaccines: Important Talking Points." Clinical trial study designs failed to address transmission, but instead focused on reduction of symptoms. See #6 in the attached document called "Top 10 Things You Should Know About COVID-19 Vaccines."

See Dr. Joseph Mercola's March 22, 2021, article called "Definitions of Pandemics, Vaccines, Herd Immunity All Changed" here. https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2021/03/22/who-pandemic-definition.aspx

There is very little risk of death from Covid-19 disease. See the first and the sixth items in the attached document called "Covid-19 Vaccines: Important Talking Points." See #7 in the attached document called "Top 10 Things You Should Know About COVID-19 Vaccines."

Adverse reactions to the Covid-19 injections include many severe effects, including sterility, autoimmune diseases, and death. See second and seventh items in the attached document called "Covid-19 Vaccines: Important Talking Points." See #5 in the attached document called "Top 10 Things You Should Know About COVID-19 Vaccines." See two MedAlerts "release of VAERS data." https://www.medalerts.org/vaersdb/findfield.php?TABLE=ON&GROUP1=CAT&EVENTS=ON&VAX=COVID19 and https://www.medalerts.org/vaersdb/findfield.php?TABLE=ON&GROUP1=AGE&EVENTS=ON&VAX=COVID19&DIED=Yes

There are very risky ingredients in Covid-19 injections. Concerning mRNA injections such as those made by Pfizer and Moderna, see # 9 in the attached document called "Top 10 Things You Should Know About COVID-19 Vaccines." The Johnson & Johnson injections are grown in a human embryonic cell line derived from an abortion of an 18-week-old healthy unborn baby. For details and sources about it, see #10 in the same "Top 10 Things..." document.


The mRNA shots are experimental gene therapies, not vaccines.

David E. Martin, Ph.D., and Judy Mikovits, Ph.D., both know that they are gene therapies. Read the "Story at-a-Glance" here:
https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2021/02/09/coronavirus-mrna-vaccine.aspx

The following words of Dr. Martin reveal that the mRNA Covid vaccines are not actually vaccines.

This is not a vaccine.

We need to be really clear. We’re using the term “vaccine” to sneak this thing under public health exemptions.

This is not a vaccine. This is an mRNA packaged in a fat envelope, that is delivered to a cell.

It is a medical device designed to stimulate the human cell into becoming a pathogen creator.

It is not a vaccine. Vaccines actually are a legally defined term, and they’re a legally defined term under public health law, they’re legally defined term under the CDC and FDA standards.

And a vaccine specifically has to stimulate both an immunity within the person who is receiving it, but it also has to disrupt transmission.

And that is not what this is. They have been abundantly clear in saying that the mRNA strand that is going into the cell, it is not to stop transmission. It is a treatment.


But if it was discussed as a treatment, it would not get the sympathetic ear of the public health authorities, because then people would say, well what other treatments are there?

Dr. Mercola interviewed Dr. Judy Mikovits.
COVID-19 Vaccination: Experimental Gene Therapy Under the Guise of Immunity? A Special Interview With Judy Mikovits, Ph.D., by Dr. Joseph Mercola https://mercola.fileburst.com/PDF/ExpertInterviewTranscripts/DrMercola-JudyMikovits-COVID-19-Vaccination.pdf

This is an explanation of why mRNA Covid-19 vaccines should not be given to anyone with an inflammatory disease:
How COVID-19 ‘Vaccines’ May Destroy the Lives of Millions,
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola, Fact Checked -- January 31, 2021

Story at-a-glance

· The COVID-19 vaccine really isn’t a vaccine in the medical definition of a vaccine. It’s more accurately an experimental gene therapy that could prematurely kill large amounts of the population and disable exponentially more

· Since mRNA normally rapidly degrades, it must be complexed with lipids or polymers. COVID-19 vaccines use PEGylated lipid nanoparticles, and PEG is known to cause anaphylaxis

· Free mRNA can signal danger to your immune system and drive inflammatory diseases. As such, injecting synthetic thermostable mRNA (mRNA that is resistant to breaking down) is highly problematic as it can fuel chronic, long-term inflammation

· Many commonly reported side effects from the COVID-19 gene therapy “vaccines” appear to be caused by brain inflammation

· Anyone with an inflammatory disease such as rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson's disease or chronic Lyme and those with acquired immune deficiency/dysfunction from any microbial pathogen, brain trauma or environmental toxin are at high risk of dying from COVID-19 mRNA vaccines

The Wyoming State Constitution in Article 1, Section 38, preserves our rights to make our own health care decisions. The restrictions that some people are trying to make on our health care decisions have been made because of their fears about diseases. I (Susan) have a sister who recently showed me that the people in authority have not provided proof of an actual public health emergency. She is correct. The bill draft sponsored by Rep. Wilson is very much needed.

In conclusion, we, as co-founders of Wyoming Vaccine Information Network, are urging each of you committee members to support Representative Wilson in her sponsorship of the draft bill called "Vaccine requirements-limitations."

Sincerely,

Susan Pearce and Jacque Jones, co-founders

The topic was discussed at the committee meeting. When they discussed it and heard some public comments, they voted, twelve supporting the draft bill, one member was absent from the meeting, and one opposed it. It will be heard in a future legislative session.

The video of the "bill draft" section of the meeting can be heard beginning at 3:37:21 in the online video here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bwm2VEFejF8 [Joint Labor, Health and Social Services Meeting, June 10, 2021-AM] That link was obtained from https://www.wyoleg.gov/Calendar/20210601/Meeting where you click on the "Audio/Video" tab on that page. That part of the meeting ends just before 4:47:11, which is the end of that video.

To see the "Meeting Materials" that the legislature web site put into a "Meeting Materials and Handouts" file, go to https://www.wyoleg.gov/Calendar/20210601/Meeting and click on the "Meeting Materials" tab. Halfway through the list, you will see three that are in the "Vaccination requirement limitations - bill draft" section of the page.

The link below has a news article about the section of the meeting that was about the draft bill.

September 14, 2020, regarding update made by Wyoming Health Freedom on August 15, 2020, discussing Wyoming Department of Health's 2019 proposed vaccine rule changes and petition

Rule Changes and Petition Update -- Health Department Rule Change Proposals DEFEATED -- Meeting With Governor Gordon


https://www.wyominghealthfreedom.org/news/rule-changes-petition-update

At the bottom of the August 15, 2020, "rule changes and petition" update on the Wyoming Health Freedom web site, you will see a 15-minute video done by Vanda Cathey, RN. She described the Zoom meeting with Governor Gordon that took place on July 10, 2020.

She told in the video who the meeting participants were and she described what was said to Governor Gordon and also what he said in reply. The subject of the July 10th Zoom meeting was about the 2019 proposed vaccine rule changes that the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) wanted to pass.

Last year, many of you commented to the WDH about the rule changes that concerned you. Thank you so much for doing that. You'll enjoy hearing what was said in Vanda's video.

I also urge you to read the information written above the video.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~[End of WDH email]~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Before the August 9 (5 PM) deadline, several people sent comments to the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) saying they needed to remove the word "genuine" from the rules about the religious waiver. As you saw in the email above, the WDH decided to remove the word from the proposed rules. It is in the medical and religious waiver forms, however. It was put
into them in 2018, whereas it had not been in the forms prior to that, from 2016. You can see the 2019 exemption forms here https://health.wyo.gov/publichealth/immunization/patient-and-parent-resources/mandatory-immunizations/immunization-exemptions/.

February 20, 2019 - Update
February 20, 2019

On Friday, February 15, 2019, I received a very important email from Vanda Cathey, a Gillette, Wyoming, nurse. The title of her email was "Informed Consent Action Network & HHS."

Below, you will see what she said about the four documents that she sent me in her email. The documents are included below her message. Please take the time to study them and pass them on to your family and friends, as well as to officials and others who could help educate people about vaccination.
... If you haven't already, please share the attached with the group. As you know, the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) has been addressing Health and Human Services (HHS) lack of overseeing vaccine research and safety as mandated by the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. Attached is their back and forth communication including the law suit won by ICAN revealing HHS has not for the past 30 years, as mandated by the 1986 act, provided to Congress every two years reports showing what research and injury monitoring they had done in the previous two years to ensure vaccine safety.

The last attached document #4 is the most recently submitted amazing response back to HHS. It is filled with HHS's own referenced science, which HHS says supports vaccines are safe. Instead, these studies are even more alarming . . . they show no research has used the gold standard of requiring an inert placebo-controlled group, among many, many other examples of negligence! All four documents are attached, numbered, to help with the sequence of events. These truths can help us as we move forward.

Also, I've found the podcast "The Highwire with Del Bigtree" extremely informative and in real time along with his Facebook page (same title). ICAN is his non profit team who's taking on the HHS backed by the Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., law firm who recently won the huge case against Monsanto and Roundup. RFK Jr's page "Children's Defense Network" is another amazing source.

January 21, 2019 - Updates
January 21, 2019

Action Alert - Two bills currently in Wyoming State Legislature - Also, there are new January 2019 vaccine waiver forms on the Wyoming Department of Health web site.

This information is in three parts:

(1) SF 55

(2) SF 60

(3) New January 2019 vaccine waiver forms on the Wyoming Department of Health web site

If you don't have much time, be sure to see the parts in BOLD print. The rest can be read if you need more information.

Part 1 - SF 55

SF 55 update

Update for 1/29/2019 - SF 55 Optometrists practice act amendments.

https://www.wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2019/SF0055

Allows the state health officer to authorize optometrists to administer vaccines

Digest for SF 55: https://www.wyoleg.gov/2019/Digest/SF0055.pdf

On 1/22/2019, SF 55 passed the Senate.

On 1/23/2019, the House received it for Introduction.

As of January 29, 2019, https://www.wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2019/SF0055 says "No Meetings Currently Scheduled" and "No Floor Sessions Currently Scheduled." This page always shows latest action on this bill.

Joint and Standing Committees - Go here to find members of each committee. https://www.wyoleg.gov/Committees/List/2019/J

When the committee meeting has been scheduled, ask committee members to delete Part (f) on page 7 of Engrossed version https://www.wyoleg.gov/2019/Engross/SF0055.pdf. If that does not happen, they need to vote NO on SF 55.

     Part (f) on page 7 of the Engrossed version should be deleted. This is because vaccines are a pharmaceutical product which can cause injury or death in some people. Vaccines should only be administered by healthcare practitioners who are educated in (1) identifying possible vaccine reactions, (2) screening for contraindications, which means conditions that serve as reasons to withhold a certain medical treatment due to the harm that it would possibly cause a patient, and (3) providing fully informed consent.

If SF 55 passes through the committee meeting, you need to contact your state (House) representative. You can find your state representative by looking at the LEGISLATORS section on the lower right of this web page: https://www.wyoleg.gov/.

As you can see below today's update, in the January 21, 2019, updates posted last week, the bold print in Part 1 - SF 55 reveals more information about SF 55.


Please keep checking the NVIC Advocacy Portal page for information about these Wyoming bills: < https://nvicadvocacy.org/members/Home.aspx

[January 21, 2019]
SF 55 Optometrists practice act amendments (The bill authorizes optometrists to administer vaccines.)

On the upper right side of the above page, under "Bill Versions and Resources" you see links to three documents explaining details about the bill.

On January 17, 2019, I emailed the following to my state senator:


Subject: SF 55 - Please delete part (e) on page 6.

Part (e) on page 6 says:

(e) The state health officer may authorize licensed optometrists to administer immunizations when providing the authority is not inconsistent with other law and when necessary for public health purposes.

This part should be deleted. This is because vaccines are a pharmaceutical product which can cause injury or death in some people. Vaccines should only be administered by healthcare practitioners who are educated in (1) identifying possible vaccine reactions, (2) screening for contraindications, which means conditions that serve as reasons to withhold a certain medical treatment due to the harm that it would possibly cause a patient, and (3) providing fully informed consent.


Sincerely,

Susan Pearce, co-founder

Wyoming Vaccine Information Network (I also included my address and phone number here when I emailed him.)

Additional SF 55 information:

Information about SF 55 is given on the NVIC Advocacy Portal web site. https://nvicadvocacy.org/members/Home.aspx

This site also gives you the names and contact information of your state legislators and your governor.

If you have not already registered at the NVIC Advocacy Portal site, in order to make use of their site, you need to do that so that you can login.

I didn't know about SF 55 until a leader of the Portal told me about it.

My suggestion is that you ask your legislators to delete Part (e) on page 6, as I said above in my email to my state senator.

According to https://www.wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2019/SF0055, SF 55 has had its Senate Second Reading. On January 22, it is scheduled to have the Senate Third Reading at 10 AM. The Digest at https://www.wyoleg.gov/2019/Digest/SF0055.pdf describes the changes that were made until the present time. They have not made changes regarding optometrists vaccinating people.

Below, in Part 2 - SF 60, you will see a brief comment (by Jacque Jones) regarding SF 55.

Part 2 - SF 60

SF 60 update

Update for 1/29/2019 - SF 60 - Protection of children-child endangerment amendments.

Digest for SF 60: https://www.wyoleg.gov/2019/Digest/SF0060.pdf

On 1/17/2019, the Senate passed SF 60.

On 1/22/2019, the House received SF 60 for Introduction.

As of this morning, January 29, 2019, https://www.wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2019/SF0060 says "No Meetings Currently Scheduled" and "No Floor Sessions Currently Scheduled."

When something is posted at https://www.wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2019/SF0060, you will know details about the committee so that you can contact each of its members.

Joint and Standing Committees - Go here to find members of each committee. https://www.wyoleg.gov/Committees/List/2019/J

When you contact the committee members, please ask that they include wording that will protect parents' rights to exemptions from vaccination for their children if/when their children are removed from the home by certain authorities.

If SF 60 passes through the committee meeting, you need to contact your state (House) representative. You can find your state representative by looking at the LEGISLATORS section on the lower right of this web page: https://www.wyoleg.gov/.

As you can see below today's update, in the January 21, 2019, updates posted last week, the bold print in Part 2 - SF 60 gives more details.


Please keep checking the NVIC Advocacy Portal page for information about these Wyoming bills: https://nvicadvocacy.org/members/Home.aspx


[January 21, 2019]
SF 60 Protection of children-child endangerment amendments

First, I will give the information that Jacque Jones, co-founder of Wyoming Vaccine Information Network (WVIN), has shared about SF 60. It also includes her statement regarding SF 55.

Jacque said:

There are currently 2 bills this legislative session that deserve close attention. First is SF 60 concerning child protection and abandonment. I sent the following email to several of the sponsors and co-sponsors of the bill:

I have some concern with SF 60 in regard to parental rights. In 1999 I had to sue the State Department of Health over the medical exemption from vaccines for my child. In meeting with the Governor's counsel my husband and I were told that if we could find another doctor our exemption would be approved. We chose to instead take our case to the Supreme Court and won. It was stressful, time consuming and expensive. We won because we followed the law.

My concern with SF60 is that a child or children with a valid exemption to vaccination would then be vaccinated against a parent's or legal guardian's consent if taken into state custody. I am begging you to add an amendment to the bill to keep this from happening.

The second is SF55 that will allow optometrists to administer vaccines and prescribe hydrocodone.

For info on the bills go to https://www.wyoleg.gov/.

[The above indented section was what Jacque Jones shared about the two bills.]

The information below is about SF 60. https://www.wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2019/SF0060

Last week, I discussed SF 60 with Jacque Jones, co-founder of Wyoming Vaccine Information Network, and with a leader of NVIC Advocacy Portal. https://www.nvicadvocacy.org/members/Home.aspx

What you see below is similar to what I emailed to a few state legislators before the WY State Senate's third reading, on the 17th. Since then, I have changed the wording a little.

In your discussions regarding SF 60 https://www.wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2019/SF0060, please protect parents' rights to exemptions from vaccination for their children. I ask that you consider the following information.

If a child is put into state care in temporary custody while protective services investigates, we are concerned that they would vaccinate children whose parents have a valid religious or medical exemption. Wyoming should not be doing any non-emergency care such as vaccination if the parent has an exemption, since custody hasn't been terminated.

Wyoming allows religious and medical vaccine exemptions. Therefore, investigations and termination should not be based upon a parent who is utilizing a legal exemption. SF 60 needs to be amended to include protective language for families who refuse vaccination and who use a vaccine exemption for medical or religious reasons.

The courts should be prohibited from terminating parental rights and Child Protective Services should not be allowed to investigate or take possession of a child based on a parent who has declined immunization for a child on religious or medical grounds. Also, if a vaccine exemption is already in place for a child who is in temporary custody of the state, the state should be prohibited from administering any vaccines for that child, since parental rights have not been terminated and that action cannot be undone.

Thank you for your consideration of these important points.

Sincerely,

Susan Pearce, co-founder Wyoming Vaccine Information Network

The original version of SF 60 was changed while it was discussed in the Wyoming State Senate last week. It will next go to the Wyoming House of Representatives. The quotes in the information below are part of the engrossed version, showing some changes that were made in the Senate:

https://www.wyoleg.gov/2019/Engross/SF0060.pdf

"SF 60 Protection of children-child endangerment amendments" is a bill that has gone through its third reading in the Wyoming Senate. The bill is necessary when it has to do with a child who is endangered by such events as abandonment, neglect, or other safety issues. However, it needs to include wording that will protect parents' rights to exemptions from vaccination for their children if/when their children are removed from the home by certain authorities.

Page 2 of the engrossed version says, "the examining physician, law enforcement or local child protective agency shall consider whether temporary protective custody is necessary under W.S. 14-3-405."

On pages 2 and 3, the engrossed version says: "A child, or any other child residing in the same household, may be taken into custody by a law enforcement officer without a warrant or court order and without the consent of the parents, guardians or others exercising temporary or permanent control over the child when: (i) There are reasonable grounds to believe a child, or any other child residing in the same household, is abandoned, lost, suffering from illness or injury or seriously endangered by the child's surroundings and immediate custody appears to be necessary for his protection; or"

[I noticed that both the original and the engrossed versions do not have a (ii), but instead they have a (iii) here.]

"(iii) The child, or any other child residing in the same household, is as evidenced by an examination being abused or neglected by a parent, guardian or legal custodian, a member of the parent's, guardian's or legal custodian's household or any other person known to the parent, guardian or legal custodian.

"(b) A child, or any other child residing in the same household, may be taken into temporary protective custody by a physician, physician's assistant or nurse practitioner without a warrant or court order and without the consent of the parents, guardians or others exercising temporary or permanent control over the child when the physician, physician's assistant or nurse practitioner treating the child, or a hospital in which the child is being treated, finds that there is reasonable cause to believe an imminent danger to the child's life, health or safety exists unless the child is taken into protective custody, whether or not additional medical treatment is required, and there is not time to apply for a court order."

If you go to https://www.wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2019/SF0060 you will see more about this bill, including the names of the sponsors, the version of the bill as it was initially introduced, as well as a Digest, or summary of proceedings (changes) for the bill that have been made so far in the legislative process.

Since SF 60 has passed the Wyoming Senate, it will be seen in the Wyoming House of Representatives. I believe it will first go through a committee, perhaps the Judiciary Committee, because that is where it was discussed before going to the Senate. Then it would be sent to the full House.

As of this afternoon, January 21, https://www.wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2019/SF0060 says "No Meetings Currently Scheduled" and "No Floor Sessions Currently Scheduled." When something is posted there, we will know details about the committee so that we can contact each of its members, then contact our representative before it goes to the full House.

When you contact a state legislator, please ask that he or she includes wording that will protect parents' rights to exemptions from vaccination for their children if/when their children are removed from the home by certain authorities. You can find your state senator and representative by looking at the LEGISLATORS section on the lower right of this web page: https://www.wyoleg.gov/.

September 2, 2018  The religious exemption form - more answers to your questions about personal liability

Please read the DISCLAIMER for WYOMING VACCINE INFORMATION NETWORK near the bottom of our web page. http://www.vaclib.org/chapter/wyhome.htm#disclaimer

Please be very cautious when you are filling out a form that requires your signature. When you sign it, the form becomes a legal document. You have agreed to everything above your signature.

In 2017 and also in April 2018, when I wrote the exemption updates for those two years, I mentioned the "Your Choice? Your Choice" section on the vaclib.org web site. In April 2018, I urged you to see that section, particularly pointing out a certain part of it. Now I am urging you to also read the following parts, in case you missed them.

The entire "Your Choice? Your Choice" section contains much important information. The page begins with the writers' disclaimer (please read it at http://www.vaclib.org/exemption.htm#disclaimer) and is followed by the section called "Your Choice? Your Choice." http://www.vaclib.org/exemption.htm#yourchoice  

Today I am highlighting these parts:
Warning About Physician's “Refusal to Vaccinate” Form  https://parentsaganinstmandatoryvaccines.net/2015/08/18/do-not-sign-the-refusal-to-vaccinate-form/  Article title: "DO NOT SIGN the Refusal to Vaccinate Form!" [This warning includes any waiver/exemption form that could cause you liability problems, not just a physician's "Refusal to Vaccinate" form.]

What to do if you have signed the “Refusal to Vaccinate” Form  https://parentsaganinstmandatoryvaccines.net/2015/01/26/so-youve-signed-the-refusal-to-vaccinate-document/   Article title: "So, you’ve signed the Refusal to Vaccinate document?"  [If you signed a form that contains statements with which you are uncomfortable, this applies to you. It tells why you need to use the Vaccination Notice.]

[Note: At the end of that section, the author states, "The Vaccination Notice with instructions can be found in the Overcoming Vaccine Mania Guide." https://parentsaganinstmandatoryvaccines.net/overcoming-vaccine-mania/  The Overcoming Vaccine Mania Guide is a 2018 guide on the web site of Parents Against Mandatory Vaccines. https://parentsaganinstmandatoryvaccines.net]
If you decide to sign a state authorized exemption form, you will not be using a Vaccination Notice. Be sure to read the section called "H. State Vaccination Exemptions" on pages 23 and 24 of the Overcoming Vaccine Mania - 2018 Guide. https://parentsaganinstmandatoryvaccines.net/overcoming-vaccine-mania/ This section ends with these words:  
Again, as long as moms and dads don’t challenge false or misleading statements on exemption/waiver forms, it will be assumed they agree with them. Should any employee of the school or public health department tell you that their forms cannot be altered, politely ask them for the number of the state statute that prohibits initialed clarifications. While these employees are bound by the rules of their employers, parents are not and should not hesitate to challenge their inane rules. If they don’t accept your appropriately modified waiver, move on to a Vaccination Notice.
If you have any questions, you may contact us (Susan Pearce and Jacque Jones) by using the contact information below. If you call, please leave a message, as I almost never answer my phone if I do not recognize the phone number.

August 3, 2018, Update Regarding Religious Exemption Waiver Forms

The Wyoming Department of Health updated the medical and the religious waiver request forms.

[NOTE: The 2018 link to both forms has been deleted.

[Note the link below to the 2019 updated forms.]

In their place the Wyoming Department of Health has new updated January 2019 medical and religious waiver forms at the following web page: https://health.wyo.gov/publichealth/immunization/patient-and-parent-resources/mandatory-immunizations/immunization-exemptions/ The updated forms are given at the bottom of the web page. A note at the bottom of the list of waiver forms says,
"*Note that previous versions of the waiver forms will continue to be processed."]

The updated May 2018 Religious Waiver Request form can still be found here: https://health.wyo.gov/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Religious-Exemption-to-Mandatory-Immunizations-ENGL-5.2.18.pdf

The updated religious waiver form no longer requires a notary public to witness your signature. The new form does not provide blanks for you to initial the vaccines for which you are requesting a waiver, but you are told to check the box next to each vaccine.

As I pointed out in my April 2018 update below, there is still a question of possible liability if you sign the form as it is written. Please read that update, which contains much more information. That update title starts with the words, " Changes in Wyoming Immunization Religious Waiver Form Raise Personal Liability Questions..."

April 2018
Changes in Wyoming Immunization Religious Waiver Form Raise Personal Liability Questions - Resubmission of Religious and Medical Forms Needed Due to Two Newly Mandated Vaccines - Privacy info about WY Immunization Registry

Please read the DISCLAIMER for WYOMING VACCINE INFORMATION NETWORK near the bottom of our web page. http://www.vaclib.org/chapter/wyhome.htm#disclaimer

Wyoming Vaccination (Immunization) Religious Waiver (Exemption) form:
It was brought to my attention in April 2018, that last month (March 2018), the Religious Waiver 2016 form had been changed. The Wyoming Department of Health web page concerning immunization waivers is here.
[Update: January 2019 Forms are on this page.] https://health.wyo.gov/publichealth/immunization/patient-and-parent-resources/mandatory-immunizations/immunization-exemptions/
   Note the newer January 2019 form in link above.
The new March 2018 form is found here. https://health.wyo.gov/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Religious-Exemption-to-Mandatory-Immunizations-ENGL-3.14.18.pdf

Introduction to this update - Explanations for each item are provided in the "Body of the Article" section, below this "Introduction." Beneath that second section is a third section, called "Resources."

1. Personal liability information is explained, regarding parts of the religious exemption request forms on the WY Department of Health web site. [More information about this is in number 1 in the "Body of the Article" section below.]

2. Two additional vaccines were added to the mandatory schedule, so that a new waiver request form would need to be filled out for a child to be exempted from them. [More information about this is in numbers 2, 4, and 5, in the "Body of the Article" section below.]

3. Be sure you read two of the six Wyoming statutes (state laws) regarding vaccinations because familiarity with these two statutes helps you respond to the religious waiver form with more caution. [More information about this is in number 3 in the "Body of the Article" section below.]

4. There are two ways to request a religious exemption. You may use the waiver form provided by the Wyoming Department of Health or you may provide your own written statement. You are not required to justify or explain your religious beliefs. [More information about this is in number 4 in the "Body of the Article" section below.]

5. The 7th grade exemption renewal requirement has been dropped. [More information about this is in number 5 in the "Body of the Article" section below.]

6. Another change was that they removed the statement on the religious exemption form in which you could decide to exclude the exemption from being entered into the Wyoming Immunization Registry (WyIR). At this time (April 2018), waivers are not being entered into the Wyoming Immunization Registry. Regarding vaccination information that has already been entered into the registry system:


The web page of the Wyoming Department of Health "Office of Privacy, Security, and Contracts" (https://health.wyo.gov/admin/privacy/notice-privacy-practices/) discusses privacy practices that apply to a person's vaccination information. Disclosure of a person's information can be restricted by submitting the F-12 - Use and Disclosure Restriction Form (https://health.wyo.gov/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/F-012-Use-or-Disclosure-Restriction.pdf), which can be located here (https://health.wyo.gov/publichealth/immunization/immunization-records/).

[More information about this is in number 6 in the "Body of the Article" section below.]

7. Wyoming Administrative Rules and Agency Rules - Additional web pages are included so that we can learn about future proposed rules on vaccination, which would allow us plenty of time to comment before the proposed rules are accepted. [More information about this is in number 7 in the "Body of the Article" section below.]



Body of the Article - More details about the above introductory points are shown below.

1. This is very important personal liability information to keep in mind when filling out the religious exemption form. Some wording on the form says, "Exempting my child from any or all required vaccine(s) may result in serious illness, disability, or death to my child or others. I understand the risks and possible outcomes of my decision to exempt my child. ________ (initial)" In my opinion, that is not the only section that could cause you to be liable if you initial certain items and sign the completed document. Because of the changes made in 2016 and in 2018 in the Wyoming religious exemption form, learning the information on the following web page is very important. The page begins with the writers' Disclaimer (please read it at http://www.vaclib.org/exemption.htm#disclaimer) and is followed by the section called "Your Choice? Your Choice." It is the "Your Choice? Your Choice" section that I'm referring to here, when you are obtaining your vaccination waiver. http://www.vaclib.org/exemption.htm#yourchoice

Regarding the information in the "Your Choice? Your Choice" section, be sure to read this subsection that I have indented below. It is found near the bottom of the "Your Choice? Your Choice" section.

More information:
READ VERY CAREFULLY
any waiver forms before you sign. Find out why signing the AAP waiver form is a self incriminating act.

1. DoNotSign_Waiver_Info_page
http://www.vaclib.org/legal/donotsign.htm

2. Signing_Under_Duress http://www.vaclib.org/legal/donotsign.htm#duress

The part that stands out (to me) is the part called "1. DoNotSign_Waiver_Info_page" (http://www.vaclib.org/legal/donotsign.htm). On that page, scroll down to the word Warning! After you read that short part, read the four paragraphs below it that begin with the words "Dear VacLib Members and Friends" in which the writer begins, "Wanted to give you a heads up on state issued exemption forms."


2. Two vaccines were added to the mandatory schedule a few weeks ago and are included in the 2018 medical and religious exemption forms.
These are the pneumococcal vaccine and the rotavirus vaccine.

Recently, someone asked me whether or not people can still receive a religious exemption from all of the vaccines. The answer is yes. As before, the state statutes (see below) allow a person receiving an exemption to still be exempt from all of the vaccines. The fact that they've added two more vaccines to the mandatory schedule does not change the fact that you may receive your exemption from all of the mandatory vaccines.

In part 4. Administrative Rules below, you will see more information regarding the two additional vaccines that were added to the mandatory schedule. Basically, a person needing his child exempted from the two vaccines will need to reapply for an exemption.

3. Be sure you read two of the six Wyoming statutes (state laws) regarding vaccinations because familiarity with the statutes helps you respond to the religious waiver form with more caution. The titles of these two statutes are listed below and the laws can be read on the last half of this web page https://www.nvic.org/Vaccine-Laws/state-vaccine-requirements/wyoming.aspx.
Wyo. Stat. Ann. § 21-4-309. Mandatory immunizations for children attending schools; exceptions.

Wyo. Stat. Ann. § 14-4-116. Mandatory immunizations for children attending child caring facilities.

Find more information regarding Wyoming vaccination statutes in #3 at the beginning of the Resources section below this "Body of the Article" information.

4. Administrative Rules https://health.wyo.gov/publichealth/immunization/statutes_rules/
There are two ways to request a religious exemption. You can use the waiver form provided by the Wyoming Department of Health or you can provide your own written statement. You are not required to justify or explain your religious beliefs. Further details and sources are listed in #4 in the Resources section below this "Body of the Article" information. The first and second excerpts that I included there will explain this paragraph.

Another point is that when they added two more vaccines to the mandatory schedule, a person who already has a religious exemption for his child, who also needs his child to be exempted from the additional vaccines, needs to apply for a new religious exemption that includes them. You will find details in the third and fourth excerpts in #4 in the Resources section below this "Body of the Article" information.

5. Article title: "Wyoming Immunization Requirements Enhanced, Updated" https://health.wyo.gov/wyoming-immunization-requirements-enhanced-updated/ [Three excerpts are included below.]

Excerpt #1 from that February 28, 2018, article on WY Department of Health web site: "Wyoming offers limited medical and religious exemptions from the state’s immunization rules." [See #2 above in which I explain that the statutes still allow people to become exempted from all of the mandatory vaccines.]

Excerpt #2: "Because only babies younger than 8 months can receive the rotavirus vaccine, catchup doses aren’t required for older children by the new rules."

Excerpt #3: "The exemption process has been streamlined by dropping a 7th grade renewal requirement." Some people might be confused by the dropping of the 7th grade waiver renewal requirement when they realize their 7th grader may need a new waiver for a new mandatory vaccine. The student will need a new waiver that includes the new mandated vaccine that was not included on his original waiver form. This new waiver would not be called a renewal. If a 7th grade exempted child has not received the newly required vaccine that the new mandatory schedule requires, he would need a new waiver that would include the addition of that newly required vaccine, along with any other mandatory vaccines from which the parents (for religious reasons) or the doctor (for medical reasons) want him exempted. This would apply to both the religious and the medical exemptions provided by the Wyoming Department of Health.

6. Wyoming Immunization Registry -- One of the changes on the religious exemption form was that they removed the statement in which you could decide to exclude the exemption from being entered into the Wyoming Immunization Registry.

a. The 2016 form said, "Check this box to exclude this exemption from being entered into the Wyoming Immunization Registry. Please be advised that you will be responsible for maintaining your child’s/your immunization records to ensure child care or school compliance." The March 2018 form no longer has this statement.

b. Excerpt from February 28, 2018, article on WY Department of Health web site: "Rules and procedures for healthcare professionals who administer vaccines in Wyoming have also been updated, including a requirement to report immunization data to the Wyoming Immunization Registry (WyIR)." https://health.wyo.gov/wyoming-immunization-requirements-enhanced-updated/

c. I emailed a person in the WyIR and I now know that at this time (April 2018), waivers are not being put into the Wyoming Immunization Registry.

d. I was told by this person that you may restrict disclosure of information in the Immunization Registry. You would need to submit the F-12 - Use and Disclosure Form, as stated in #6 in the Introduction to this article. Before I emailed this person and heard back, I did the following research:

(1) On this web page, https://rules.wyo.gov/Search.aspx?mode=1#, click on "Health, Department of (048)" and scroll down to "Wyoming Immunization Program (0071)." Click on that and it will show Chapters 1 through 5, which were updated on February 7, 2018. Click on "Chapter 5: Wyoming Immunization Information System," which became effective on February 7, 2018. To the right, click on "Download" and it shows you a document called "Chapter 5: Wyoming Immunization Information System."

(2) In that document, scroll down to "Section 13. Patient Consent" in which a person "...may request an exclusion of his or his child's immunization information from the IIS by completing the Use and Disclosure Restriction (F-12) form available at https://health.wyo.gov/admin/privacy/ and made available by the Department upon request. ... The Department may not retain individually identifiable information in the IIS for a patient listed on an approved Use and Disclosure Restriction (F-12) form." [Note: The quoted statement above was copied from the document. The link in that statement no longer works. If you need the F-12 form, click on the links in #6 in the Introduction to this article.]

(3) Also before I had an email conversation with someone in the Wyoming Immunization Registry, I wrote this:

To make sure that the IIS (which is the Wyoming Immunization Information System) is the same as the Immunization Registry, I searched a 2011 document called "Rules and Regulations for the Wyoming Immunization Registry." In it, I found this statement: " 'Designee' means an individual, acting under the authority of a health care provider or another category of Authorized User, who has been specifically delegated responsibility to access the WyIR, an Immunization Information System (IIS), and perform the functions permitted the primary Authorized User." https://legisweb.state.wy.us/ARULES/2011/AR11-007Health.pdf Therefore, the Immunization Registry must be the same as the Immunization Information System (IIS). If so, this means that you can still opt out of allowing your "individually identifiable information" to be included in the IIS (which apparently is the same as the registry.) It appears to me that if you opt out, your identifying information will not be included in the registry.

(4) The F-12 Use and Disclosure Restriction form states:

As required by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), clients have a right to request restrictions on how a covered entity uses and discloses their protected health information. All requests will be considered. Wyoming Department of Health(WDH) is generally not required to agree to a requested restriction. However, WDH must agree to restrict disclosures to a health plan (e.g., a health insurance company) when a client or someone other than the health plan has paid WDH for services provided to the client, unless the disclosure is required by law. If the client is in need of emergency treatment WDH will disclose the minimum amount of information necessary to provide adequate treatment. In this event, WDH will notify the client. If an information restriction is modified, information in the record created or received while the restriction was in place will remain subject to the original restriction.

(5) If you have further questions, you may contact the Wyoming Immunization Registry here. https://health.wyo.gov/publichealth/immunization/wyir-wyoming-immunization-registry/ The page lists three people for you to contact with your questions.


7. Additional web pages for Wyoming Administrative Rules https://rules.wyo.gov/Default.aspx and for Agency Rules http://legisweb.state.wy.us/StateStatutes/Rules/2018

Please help us keep an eye on these sites for future proposed rules on vaccination (immunization) so that we can know in plenty of time to make our comments before the proposed rules are accepted. Thank you.

#3. (from Item 3 above) Wyoming vaccination statutes that are the most important in this update are (1) "Mandatory immunizations for children attending schools; exceptions" and (2) "Mandatory immunizations for children attending child caring facilities." Those two statutes can be read in the last half of this web page: https://www.nvic.org/Vaccine-Laws/state-vaccine-requirements/wyoming.aspx.

The following web pages include the Wyoming vaccination statutes. The first link listed below is from the Wyoming Department of Health web site. As of April 2018, it listed six Wyoming Statutes, two of which you especially need to read (mentioned in the paragraph just above). To see the list of six Wyoming vaccination statutes, click on Wyoming Statutes when you go to this web page.


#4. (from Item 4 above) Below the Wyoming Statutes section at https://health.wyo.gov/publichealth/immunization/statutes_rules/ is the Administrative Rules section. Click on it and when the list appears, click on "Ch. 3 Mandatory Immunizations for Children Attending" which shows you the document at https://health.wyo.gov/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Ch.-3-Mandatory-Immunizations-for-Children-Attending.pdf See "Section 7. Waivers." Below are four excerpts from that Waivers section of this particular administrative rule:

First excerpt:

(a) A waiver of an immunization required under Section 4 of this chapter must be granted if written evidence of a religious objection is submitted to the State or County Health Officer by the child’s parent. Written evidence of religious objection includes:

(i) A complete and signed religious waiver form, found at https://health.wyo.gov/publichealth/immunization and made available by the Department upon request; or
(ii) A signed statement from the child’s parent, certifying religious objection to the administration of a specific immunization.

I'm sure you noticed that the above rule states that the "waiver of an immunization ... must be granted if written evidence of a religious objection is submitted to the State or County Health Officer by the child's parent." I'm sure you also noticed that this rule gives you two choices in this submission of written evidence of religious objection: you can either use the religious waiver form that was mentioned above or you can submit a "signed statement from the child’s parent, certifying religious objection to the administration of a specific immunization." They both result in the waiver being granted, according to that rule.

Second excerpt:

Part (c) of the same section ["Section 7. Waivers" of the rule (described just above)], says:

(c) The State or County Health Officer shall grant a waiver to a child upon submission of written evidence of religious objection or medical contraindication. In the event a child submits written evidence in a form that the State or County Health Officer determines does not comply with subsections (a) or (b) of this subsection, the State or County Health Officer shall determine whether to grant a waiver consistent with Lepage v. State of Wyo., Dep’t of Health, 2001 WY 26, 18 P.3d 1177 (Wyo. 2001), and Jones ex rel. Jones v. State of Wyo., Dep’t of Health, 2001 WY 28, 18 P.3d 1189 (Wyo. 2001).

Two notes about the second excerpt:

Note #1: Where it says, "In the event a child submits written evidence in a form..." I'm sure the people who wrote the rule meant to say "parent" or "parent/guardian" rather than "child."

Note #2: Regarding the Wyoming Supreme Court religious exemption 2001 decision cited above (Lepage v. State of Wyo., Dep't of Health, 2001), the health department was told it could not require a person to explain why it is against his or her religion. In other words, as is stated in this Wyoming Supreme Court decision, "... the statutory language lacks any mention of an inquiry by the state into the sincerity of religious beliefs. As a result, the Department of Health exceeded its legislative authority when it conducted a further inquiry into the sincerity of Mrs. LePage's religious beliefs. ..." Further explanation of this Wyoming Supreme Court decision can be read here: https://law.justia.com/cases/wyoming/supreme-court/2001/183457.html.

Third excerpt:

Part (d) of the same section ["Section 7. Waivers" of the rule (described just above)], says:
(d) A waiver granted under this section is limited in scope to the immunizations referenced in the submitted written evidence of religious objection or medical contraindication.

Note about the third excerpt: This simply states that the waiver only applies to the immunizations that were referenced in the request for exemption.

Fourth excerpt:

Part (e) of the same section ["Section 7. Waivers" of the rule (described just above)], says:

(e) If the immunization requirements under Section 4 of this chapter are amended to include a new immunization, a previously-granted waiver under this section does not apply to the newly required immunization. If the newly required immunization is objected to on religious or medical grounds, a new waiver must be requested in accordance with this section.

Apparently, because of that part of the rule, people with exemptions, who also seek a religious or medical exemption to the two recently added mandatory vaccines, the pneumococcal vaccine and the rotavirus vaccine, will be required to request a new waiver "in accordance with this section."

May 12, 2017, religious exemption form update:
In October 2016 the Wyoming Department of Health made significant additions to the 2010 religious exemption form, making it two pages rather than one. The https://health.wyo.gov/publichealth/immunization/patient-and-parent-resources/mandatory-immunizations/immunization-exemptions/ web page has exemption information and forms for January 2019. That page gives you the following link to the pdf document for the religious exemption.

https://health.wyo.gov/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Religious-Exemption-to-Mandatory-Immunizations-ENGL-3.14.18.pdf

Because of the additions to the previous 2010 Wyoming form for religious exemptions, becoming acquainted with the information on the following web page should be helpful. The page begins with the Disclaimer and is followed by the section called "Your Choice? Your Choice." http://www.vaclib.org/exemption.htm#yourchoice
CDC police powers to forcibly detain, isolate, vaccinate and quarantine citizens
From Susan Pearce, co-founder, Wyoming Vaccine Information Network:
Letter to legislators:
[about] CDC's proposed rule that would expand police powers to forcibly detain, isolate, vaccinate and quarantine citizens.
PDF letter

   January 2013
Message from Susan Pearce, co-founder, Wyoming Vaccine Information Network:
"HB 94 Immunization by pharmacists"
would allow pharmacists to prescribe and administer vaccinations to children from age seven and older. I am not opposed to allowing pharmacists to administer vaccines as long as certain conditions are met. Parental consent for children to be vaccinated needs to be included in the bill. Because the vaccine manufacturers are not held legally responsible for damages or death caused by vaccines, federal law requires that the person administering the vaccine gives the parent or guardian of the child, prior to being vaccinated:

(1) accurate information regarding the risks and benefits of each vaccine,
(2) how the parent should report an adverse reaction to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), and
(3) information about the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

Also, there needs to be documentation in the patient's permanent medical record that gives the names of the vaccines given, with the name of the vaccine manufacturer and the lot numbers of each vaccine. Pharmacists need to have access to the child's medical records prior to the vaccine(s) being given so that they are aware of previous reactions and allergies to vaccines and their ingredients. They need to be prepared to deal with sudden adverse vaccine reactions. For updates regarding HB 94, go to http://nvicadvocacy.org/members/Home.aspx. It also contains the letter I e-mailed the committee members who are discussing HB 94 and instructions on what you need to do.

Update on SF 54 Meningococcal vaccination
(mandate for WY college students)


I have good news about Wyoming bill SF 54. The bill died Friday, Feb. 24, because it didn't get discussed at length in the full Senate, after its Monday, Feb. 20, committee meeting. It needed to be heard on the Senate Floor (Committee of the Whole), by Friday, but missed the deadline.

Please see the NVIC Advocacy Portal at http://nvicadvocacy.org/members/Home.aspx for important details about what is possibly going to happen in upcoming legislative sessions with regard to vaccination in our state. Registering with the NVIC Advocacy Portal is imperative for anyone who is concerned about our eroding rights to control what is injected into our bodies. The people who operate that web site will keep you informed about troubling Wyoming bills, but please occasionally re-check that site for announcements for Wyoming.

* * Feb. 17, 2012 - Important Alert:
SF 54, Meningococcal vaccination bill regarding WY college students

If you live in Wyoming, please register at http://nvicadvocacy.org/members/Home.aspx because the SF 54 Meningococcal vaccination bill would mandate the meningococcal vaccine for WY college students, if it passes. We are keeping the NVIC Advocacy Wyoming page updated, so people need to help defeat the bill by doing whatever is asked on the Wyoming page. Thank you.

HB 88 was killed yesterday. Two senators' comments are below.

Susan,
       It was near the bottom of the General File. When the Majority Leader cut off discussion on the GF, HB88 was below the line -- and died there.
~Sen. Hanes
Date: Tue, 2 Mar 2004 14:42:05 -0700

Dear Susan,
In case you haven't heard
HB 88 IS DEAD --- it died Mon. evening at about 6pm in the Senate.

Wyoming State Legislature

HB 88 (Child Protection Amendments) Threatens Parental Rights

     There are parts of HB 88 that would allow the authorities to give your child medical treatment or vaccines, if they felt that such things were necessary. Although the word vaccines is not mentioned specifically, ordinary medical care would be provided for the neglected or abused child, which we all know includes vaccinations.

     They could keep your child for a period of time without your consent. They could do this if they suspected you had spanked your child or neglected him. They could fine and/or imprison people who refuse to turn a person in for suspected child abuse or exploitation.

     I prefer that the bill is killed, but if it is not, then our rights to parental approval before vaccination and parental choice in medical practitioners and treatment, need to be assured.

     Also, the following information is necessary in making additional amendments.

     The amendment of Mr. Brechtel is good
(See bottom of http://legisweb.state.wy.us/2004/digest/hb0088.htm), but I have additional ideas that should be included. The child protective service workers need training in vaccine adverse events. Otherwise, the child will be thought of as abused or neglected when in fact in many cases, vaccination was the cause of the bruising, subdural haematomas, brain swelling, intracranial bleeding, ocular retinal haemorrhages, and broken skull and other bones. Also, failure to thrive can be linked to vaccination. These reactions are usually slow in arriving, and are not thought of as vaccine-caused, so special training needs to be given to social workers. See "Shaken Baby Syndrome - the vaccination link" by Viera Scheibner, PhD, 1998, at http://www.nexusmagazine.com/shakenbaby.html.

     Also, if the definitions are left out of the bill, then it is even MORE open to subjective interpretation than it was before. Good definitions and necessary training of social workers need to be included. [Then all we need to work on would be training the medical personnel in recognizing vaccine adverse events.]

     The Scheibner article referred to above explains the adverse events of vaccination that I mentioned above. One example is: "Indeed, vaccines like the pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine are actually used to induce encephalo-myelitis (experimental allergic encephalomyelitis) in laboratory animals (Levine and Sowinski, 1973 5). This is characterised by brain swelling and haemorrhaging of an extent similar to that caused by mechanical injuries (Iwasa et al., 1985 6)."

     One of the state representatives just gave me an example of a family whose five-year-old was taken away, traumatizing the family, because of bruising on the body. It was later discovered that the child had leukemia, causing the bruising. Please consider this: Dr. Frederick Klenner, Polio Researcher, USA, said, "Many here voice a silent view that the Salk and Sabin Polio vaccine, being made of monkey kidney tissue has been directly responsible for the major increase in leukemia in this country."

     HB 88 will have third reading in the House on Monday, February 23, 2004. If passed, it is sent to the Senate.


February 27, 2004 update

HB 88 Child Protection Amendments

    I sent this to the four senators who are on the Senate Judiciary Committee, who have e-mail addresses. Senator Meier, of LaGrange, does not. The four I sent it to are:
John Hanes jhanes@wyoming.com, Bruce Burns bburns@dbburns.com,
Ken Decaria kdecaria@senate.wyoming.com, and Keith Goodenough guvgood@hotmail.com.

    Their committee meeting was at 7:00 this morning. As of 10:00 A.M., bill status 1-800-342-9570 doesn't know how that meeting turned out.

    For now, if you have the same concerns I tell about below, please contact the above senators and your state senator. State legislator contact information is included on this web page. If you want to briefly say something to a senator, you may use the summary info in the paragraph that starts with "In conclusion, I prefer that HB 88 is killed. ...", which I wrote at the end of the letter, about one-third of the way down this page. Or you can excerpt anything you want to from my info below.
~~Susan Pearce


Dear Senator ____:

    I prefer that HB 88 is killed, but if you see that such a thing is impossible, please ensure the rights to parental approval before vaccination and parental choice in medical practitioners and treatment.

    In addition, the child protective service workers need training in vaccine adverse events. Otherwise, the child will be thought of as abused or neglected when in fact in many cases, vaccination was the cause of the bruising, subdural haematomas, brain swelling, intracranial bleeding, ocular retinal haemorrhages, and broken skull and other bones. Also, failure to thrive can be linked to vaccination. These reactions are usually slow in arriving, and are not generally thought of as vaccine-caused, so special training needs to be given to social workers.

    An article called "Shaken Baby Syndrome - the vaccination link" by Viera Scheibner, PhD, 1998, explains the adverse events of vaccination that I mentioned above. One example is: "Indeed, vaccines like the pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine are actually used to induce encephalo-myelitis (experimental allergic encephalomyelitis) in laboratory animals (Levine and Sowinski, 1973 5). This is characterised by brain swelling and haemorrhaging of an extent similar to that caused by mechanical injuries (Iwasa et al., 1985 6)." [ http://www.nexusmagazine.com/shakenbaby.html ]

    A note at the bottom gives more information about vaccination (and other causes that are not child abuse or neglect) being the cause of the above symptoms commonly thought of as child abuse.

    One of the state representatives just gave me an example of a family whose five-year-old was taken away, traumatizing the family, because of bruising on the body. It was later discovered that the child had leukemia, causing the bruising. Please consider this: Dr. Frederick Klenner, Polio Researcher, USA, said, "Many here voice a silent view that the Salk and Sabin Polio vaccine, being made of monkey kidney tissue has been directly responsible for the major increase in leukemia in this country."

    Also, please include a changed definition. HB 88 states that the definition of "neglect" is that found in State Statute 14-3-202 (a) (vii), which says "a failure or refusal by those responsible for the child's welfare to provide adequate care, maintenance, supervision, education or medical, surgical or any other care necessary for the child's well being. Treatment given in good faith by spiritual means alone, through prayer, by a duly accredited practitioner in accordance with the tenets and practices of a recognized church or religious denomination is not child neglect for that reason alone;".

    This definition is unacceptable; it needs changed. In March of 2001, the Wyoming Supreme Court concluded that waivers are to be granted upon simple request for religious exemption from vaccination. No church affiliation is necessary; nor are prayer or church tenets or practices investigated before that exemption is granted.

    Although that Supreme Court decision did not address personal beliefs that are not religious, the children of people who are not religious should not receive treatment or vaccination, when that treatment or vaccination is against the parents' or guardians' personal beliefs. I see HB 88 as a danger to the rights to refuse treatment and vaccinations when the parent or guardian objects on religious or philosophical grounds.

    In conclusion, I prefer that HB 88 is killed. However, in the event that such a thing is impossible, I ask that you ensure the rights to parental approval before vaccination and parental choice in medical practitioners and treatment. Also, the child protective service workers need training in vaccine adverse events and other causes that are not abuse or neglect. Last, the definition of neglect needs to be changed as explained above. [Note: If you use this paragraph when you contact your senator, the last sentence can say, "Last, the definition of neglect needs to be changed to exempt anyone from vaccination or medical treatment that he feels is wrong for his child or dependent."]

Sincerely,
Susan Pearce


    Below is additional information excerpted from writings of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, Inc. (AAPS), concerning refusal of medical treatment, including vaccination.

    The AAPS says, "The Centers for Disease Control admits that the reported number of adverse effects of vaccines is probably only 10% of actual adverse effects." http://www.aapsonline.org/testimony/mandvac.htm

    On Aug. 3, 1999, Jane Orient, MD, Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) said: "Public policy regarding vaccines is fundamentally flawed. It is permeated by conflicts of interest. It is based on poor scientific methodology (including studies that are too small, too short, and too limited in populations represented), which is, moreover, insulated from independent criticism. The evidence is far too poor to warrant overriding the independent judgments of patients, parents, and attending physicians, even if this were ethically or legally acceptable. Indeed, evidence is accumulating that serious adverse reactions are being ignored. Although this statement has focused on hepatitis B vaccine, similar questions should be raised about others as well."

AAPS RESOLUTION CONCERNING MANDATORY VACCINES

"Ethical Medicine"
AAPS Annual Meeting
October 25 - 28, 2000
St. Louis, MO
Submitted for Member approval:

WHEREAS: The statement of Patients' Freedoms adopted by the Assembly at the 47th annual meeting of AAPS in 1990 provides that "Patients have the freedom ... to refuse medical treatment even if it is recommended by their physician and to be informed about their medical condition, the risks and benefits of treatment, and appropriate alternatives"; and

WHEREAS: There are increasing numbers of mandatory childhood vaccines, to which children are often subjected without meaningful informed consent, including information about potential adverse side effects; and

WHEREAS: Parents who exercise their freedom to refuse one or more vaccines may be subjected to penalties ranging from deprivation of the right to enroll their child in school, to threats of removing the child from parental custody and forcible vaccination; and

WHEREAS: Safety testing of many vaccines is limited and the data are unavailable for independent scrutiny, so that mass vaccination is equivalent to human experimentation and subject to the Nuremberg Code, which requires voluntary informed consent; and

WHEREAS: The process of approving and "recommending" vaccines is tainted with conflicts of interest;

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED: That AAPS calls for a moratorium on vaccine mandates and for physicians to insist upon truly informed consent for the use of vaccines.


Thank you for your help on this important issue.

Note: A letter by Harold E Buttram, M.D., in 2001, about shaken baby syndrome/vaccine damage at http://vran.org/vaccines/sbs/sbs-rebuttal.htm also explains how temporary brittle bone disease (TBBD), lack of vitamin C, and vaccination can cause fractures, hemorrhagic complications, etc. "One of the primary roles of vitamin C in the body being that of producing and maintaining connective tissue, Dr. Kalokerinos hypothesized that with minor viral infections further depleting an already marginal store of vitamin C, the administration of endotoxin-bearing vaccines would sweep away the residual traces of vitamin C provoking fulminating scurvy with hemorrhagic complications from the [of (sic)] weakening of blood vessels."


September 8, 2002

Sometimes a health professional or school official tells a parent that his child must be vaccinated, even though the parent asks to have his child exempted.

Harold Buttram, M.D., described very well some reasons people need to do their own research on the vaccination issue. His Vaccine Scene 2000 -- Review and Update can be read at http://www.haciendapub.com/medicalsentinel/vaccine-scene-2000-review-and-update .

When you start to do your own research and begin to understand the effect of vaccine ingredients on the immune system, you may decide these ingredients are harmful to the human body.

Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, an osteopath from Cleveland, OH, stated, "A vaccine may contain 0.002 percent of a toxic substance such as formaldehyde. The percentage may seem like an insignificant, or 'safe' amount. However, the percentages, particularly when multiple antigens are injected at one time, often exceed the parts per million safety guidelines established by the Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency."

She goes on to say that doctors need to understand "that vaccines contain toxic ingredients and foreign DNA that do not belong in the bodies of people." She believes it is up to ordinary citizens to insist that physicians do the reading and the math. When they have done their homework, Dr. Tenpenny claims that, "it becomes nearly impossible for physicians to justify vaccinating children as the most intelligent way to 'immunize' them from childhood diseases."

Medical and religious exemptions to mandatory vaccines are available in Wyoming. Keeping our blood pure (untainted by the many vaccine ingredients) and our seed (our genes) from being mixed with RNA and DNA from foreign species is a principle that people often do not think of.

When God told us to keep the blood pure and to not let the seed be mixed, He had good reasons. Our immune system was created to fight an invasion of pathogens by mounting an acute response. This acute response drives the disease from the body and, in the process, strengthens the immune system so that it can be more effective in protecting us from any future onslaughts.

Vaccination does away with God's methods of ridding the body of these pathogens. Vaccines introduce an artificial means of prevention that has been shown to be a contributing factor in the development of chronic diseases and start a process of genetic recombination in human cells.

Imagine the result after several generations of genetic alterations in human cells. Our parents and grandparents had the smallpox vaccine, then the next generation had the diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, and polio vaccines. The next generation has been given measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis b, and others. The human immune system, at least in those who have been vaccinated, is made weaker and is less capable of responding effectively to an infection.

When people decide to place their faith in man's means of disease prevention instead of in God and the beautiful, efficient immune system He created for us, they needn't be shocked to discover the damage they have done to the human race.

Isaac Golden, author of the book _Vaccination? A Review of Risks and Alternatives_, put it so well when he said, "To someone whose god is science, vaccination makes sense. But to someone whose god is God, it is appalling."

September 8, 2002

Often in the last four years, I have read information on vaccination that I wish I could have read 24 years ago before my first child was born. One example is described below.

Richard Moskowitz, M.D., in his article "How Do the Vaccines Work?" explained the way a person normally responds to the measles virus. He inhales the virus and his body responds by allowing it to multiply in the head and neck region, from where it eventually passes into the blood and the visceral organs of the immune system, such as the spleen, the liver, and the thymus.

Dr. Moskowitz said that the illness is the effort of the immune system to rid the blood of the measles virus. The processes of mounting and recovering from acute illnesses involve the entire immune system.

God created a person with the ability to strengthen his immune system in this way, so that recovery from the illness means he is immune to it in the future. When we allow the immune system to be strengthened in the normal way, it is prepared to respond more quickly and effectively to any future infections.

Dr. Moskowitz went on to explain that injection of an artificially attenuated vaccine, such as that for measles, directly into the bloodstream, bypasses the normal portals of entry that activate our immune system. There is very little possibility of eliminating the virus from the body, as it would have done if it had been acquired normally. This is because there is no normal incubation period at the normal portal of entry.

The vaccine is an attempt to "trick" the body into producing antibodies so that it will be "protected" from a future exposure to disease. The trouble with this is that God didn't want us to ever have to deal with a virus or other antigen being placed directly into our bloodstream. We have no obvious way of getting rid of it when it is allowed direct access to our most vital immune organs and tissues.

The vaccine virus becomes latent in the host cells of the immune system. This latent virus has survived as a foreign element within the cell, so the body tries to keep making antibodies against it. Since the virus has become a permanent part of the cell's genetic material, the antibodies now are directed against that cell.

This leaves the body with a dilemma. It must destroy those infected cells in order to remove the constant antigenic challenge from the body. Vaccination is introducing highly antigenic material, such as live viruses, into our blood. A truly frightening result would be the many autoimmune diseases we are facing today. Our God-given immune system can no longer tell the difference between self and non-self. Our body becomes unable to recognize its own cells as its own and unable to destroy the parasites that it should perceive as foreign.

Circulating antibodies keep the virus within the cell, and continue to keep the immune system from mounting an acute inflammatory response. Then, finally, accumulated stress or emergency may be the impetus that causes the production of large quantities of antibodies that attack the cells, causing autoimmune destruction of tissues.

Dr. Moskowitz described the above processes in his article that was published in May, 1984, in Health Freedom News. More recently, Philip Incao, M.D., has written about the same subject. I have listened to many parents say they wish they had known about it before their children were born.

  About Wyoming Vaccine Information Network:

In April, 2001, Jacque Jones and Susan Pearce formed a statewide information/support group as a state chapter of Vaccination Liberation. In Sheridan and Buffalo, they have held meetings that are always open to the public. At each meeting, they usually show a DVD and then informally discuss vaccine and health topics.

During the months of January and February, they have been active in working with state legislators in order to ensure that people’s rights are maintained in the area of vaccination mandates and exemptions.


How to contact your Wyoming state legislators:

Voter Hotline:

    Call 1-866-WYO-VOTE (1-866-996-8683) if you want to leave a "vote yes" or "vote no" message. If you live in Cheyenne, call 777-VOTE (777-8683).
    Other than recommending that a legislator vote for or against an identified bill, callers cannot leave a general message for legislators through this service. All you have to tell them is your name, address, county, and which bill you are saying "yes" or "no" about. In this case, if you want the bill killed, say "No" on HB 88.

General Telephone Messages and Correspondence for Legislators:

Citizens who wish to contact a legislator directly during the session, or to convey a detailed message to a legislator, should call the
Senate Receptionist at 307-777-7711 or the House of Representatives at 307-777-7852.
Written mail may be directed to a designated legislator in care of the Wyoming House or Senate, State Capitol, Cheyenne, Wyoming, 82002.
Fax messages may be sent to a designated legislator at 307-777-5466.

You may easily find out who all your elected officials are and contact them by going to http://capwiz.com/hslda/home/. It lists all ways to contact them including e-mail. (However, it does not list the Voter Hotline number, which I gave above.)

http://legisweb.state.wy.us is the web site of the state legislature. On the left margin, where it says "Members of the 57th Legislature", you can find out how to contact any of the legislators, not just your own.

A former state representative told me the information in the first paragraph below:

The hotline is an OK way to go when one is in a hurry. The most effective way is to call each house or senate member individually and leave your message. That way it is on a pink slip and not among all the other calls legislators are getting. [Before you do that, please read the paragraph just below this one, starting with the word "Note".] They get sheets at the end of each day with a laundry list of bills and folks who say yes or no. The pages are numerous and sometimes legislators don't have time to peruse them as they have a committee meeting upon adjournment. It costs more money to call each individually, but email can be used, also. No one pays attention to the mass emails. Again, individual messages are key.

Note: Use 1-307-777-7852 only for a message that is NOT a YES/NO vote because the telephone receptionist who answers your call at 1-307-777-7852 said not to call this number with a yes/no vote, just with a message for the one legislator you are contacting with a message. That is the number that you call when you want to have a pink slip delivered to the legislator. I would only use that number to send a message in a paragraph form telling why I disagree or agree with a bill. I would rather use e-mail, when the person has an e-mail address, and most of them do.
