  WARNING
Note: New York is probably the most difficult state in the US in which to exercise your right to determine what goes into your body and your children's bodies. We encourage you to join with activists groups that are letting "authorities" know that vaccine mandates are unacceptable.

Given the pitfalls of dealing with NY school officials and other state employees, it is recommended you consider the following actions:

Contact NY_State_Resources and follow their step by step instructions. (Note: Some information is free, additional information, E-Book or other assistance requires a small charge.)

Or read the background information below and then contact NY_State_Resources.

Or do the process yourself. As noted above NY state exemptions require more knowledge and care than does any other US state.

Read our full disclaimer here.

Birth Exemptions: (General information that applys to all states)

For those who are planning a hospital birth but want to evade invasive routine post natal procedures such as a Hep B shot, vitamin K injection, newborn screening, or the application of silver nitrate in the newborn's eyes, a very specific birthing plan must be submitted to the hospital in advance of the birth. Hospital staff must be informed, in advance, of your needs, wants and desires where your baby and birthing experience are concerned. The same applies to midwives.

Steps: [General]
  • Create the Birthplan. You may modify one of our ours to fit your state laws and any other personal circumstances. (see VacLib's below) or contact NY_State_Resources.

  • Sign the birthplan in front of a Notary.

  • Submit the birth plan to your hospital or midwife. Keep a couple extra copies in case plans change.

  • Make sure affected parties (doctors, nurses, etc) understand your requirements and wishes.
  • .
  • Plan on having one or two trusted persons stay with the mother and child to watch the child at all times while in the hospital, so no unwanted injections are given the baby.

  • The birth plan arrangements and letter should be turned in before delivery date.

  • The "Refusal to Permit Medical Treatment" form below is optional.
The above steps are general for all states.
However, please note that New York state is a HARD state to get ANY exemptions although religious exemptions are allowed. New York is notorious for calling in Child Protective Services, for those who want to exercise their basic fundamental right to decide what will and what will not be injected into their children. You will more than likely have to have legal representation if you want to avoid this mass medical experimentation and Public Health assault on your childrens' bodies. DO be prepared to fight for your baby's rights!


Steps: Specific to New York:
Suggested checklist of items needed for birth exemptions in New York.
  1. Competent counsel or knowledgable help. *

  2. Model Birth Plan (Model Birth Plan Letters).

  3. "Refusal to Permit Medical Treatment" form

    PDF-file (.pdf) letters/refusal_treatment.pdf

  4. @ Vitamin K Package Insert by Merck printed out.  Also needed, is the alternative natural Vitamin K info.

  5. @ A copy of 42 USC 1983 for legal documentation to refuse Vitamin K.

  6. @ Note: above two items needed only if refusing Vitamin K injection.

  7. Page 15 of the Refusal of Newborn Screening Guide Appendices from the Physicians Guidelines.(Optional. Use only if refusing screening.)

  8. Copies of any other applicable Public Health Law to back up your claim. HepB

  9. An AFFIDAVIT or letter expressing your religious objections to vaccination or specific medical treatment.

  10. you may also want an ACCEPTANCE OF RESPONSIBILITY Form in case anyone seeks to force you to engage in treatment with which you do not agree..

  11. Consider home birth with a midwife, if at all possible. Only if you're not exepecting complications.

  12. These documents need to be ready and in place at least three months beforehand.

Vitamin K Injection...

The Question of Vitamin K for Newborns
"Essentially all human infants are born with very low blood levels of vitamin K and, since low amounts of vitamin K crosses into breast milk, levels remain low for several weeks after birth in breastfed babies. The purpose of this natural, universal experience of low vitamin K levels in newborns is not known. ..."
"Mouse and epidemiologic studies indicate that the neonatal “deficiency” of vitamin K, which promotes cell turnover, may actually protect the developing fetus from damaging substances that “escape the primary placental screen.”
Read the rest of the article here:
http://www.thevaccinereaction.org/2016/08/the-question-of-vitamin-k-for-newborns/

The prescribing information on Vitamin K shot states that fatalities are an adverse reaction according to the Merck pharmaceutical package insert.
"WARNING - INTRAVENOUS USE Severe reactions, including fatalities, have occurred during and immediately after the parenteral administration of AquaMEPHYTON® (Phytonadione)."
fatalities=death
Links to prescribing information for Vitamin K:
http://vaclib.org/chapter/inserts.htm#vitK

Alternatives to Vitamin K Prophylaxis...

Although oral vitamin K is not licensed for use as a drug by the FDA, drops for oral administration are available. Typically, one drop contains 2 mg. of vitamin K. Contact a midwife in your area, or a birthing supply company (such as birthwithlove.com), or Scientific Botanicals (206 527-5521) where your health care provider can order liquid vitamin K directly.

Here's another much safer alternative that your chiropractor or naturopath can order for you. Or order directly from Amazon.com

Biotics Research, Bio-K Mulsion - 1 fl oz

A good organic whole food diet along with lots of leafy green vegetables is all that is necessary to prevent vitamin K deficiency in newborns.

Section 12.3 of New York State Law NYCRR, Title 10, Section 12.3 (Vitamin K prophylaxis)...

Source: http://disc.server.com/Indices/149373.html (No longer active.)

"It has been shown that New York State Law currently forces medication that subjects healthy newborns to risks of life threatening side effects. New York State Law NYCRR, Title 10, Section 12.3 violates longstanding traditions in medicine and law that protect free citizens from unwarranted and unhealthy intrusion. This law must be repealed, or ammended to explicitly provide parents the right to refuse medical prophylaxis. Article 78 of New York Civil Practice provides a mechanism for temporarily nullifying Section 12.3. It is cumbersome and expensive, but may be the only legal option available to individuals within the courts of New York State. Another option is to sue under in Federal Court by invoking 42 USC 1983.

Parents are justified in their right to refuse medication of their children to protect them from unnecessary harm."
FindLaw.com Article 78 of New York Civil Practice

It's unclear whether invoking 42 USC 1983 could apply to the administeration of antibiotic eye drops.

Hepatitis B Vaccine
"Letter to hospital administrators from the Immunization Program on the NYS Dept of Health website:"

http://www.health.state.ny.us/professionals/hospital_administrator/letters/2003/administrator/2003-10-02_new_program_hepb_vaccine_newborn.pdf

"Scroll down to the paragraph that admits: "Your policy must clearly state that hepatitis B vaccine is to be offered to all newborns. As with all childhood immunizations, medical and religious exemptions are recognized in our state, and because the administration of hepatitis B vaccine at birth is recommended, but not mandated by state law, some parents may choose to defer immunization until a later time."

"...hepatitis B vaccine at birth is recommended, but not mandated by state law..."

Waivers - Take Care In Signing
If you take your new baby to an MD as opposed to a naturopath and/or chiropractor, please be aware of and careful of any forms you sign.

Our WARNING below is about signing (some) state approved and AAP created forms. See this letter from our director, Ingri Cassel, before you consider signing waiver forms.

WARNING!

Dear VacLib Members and Friends -

Wanted to give you all a heads up on state issued exemption forms. I haven't had to deal with this personally for several years, and I always crossed out sentences or clauses, and often adding some of my own, before signing their exemption of medical release type of forms. When Donna Carrillo began to diligently search out existing exemption forms and posting them, I read over a couple of them and encouraged people to make up their own whenever possible. After having a "closer encounter" with such a form - a form provided to the state of Idaho by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and used by licensed Idaho daycares, I was shocked into the VERY REAL danger of signing these forms without changing them significantly.

Any form one affixes their initials to, dates and affixes their signature to at the end is a LEGAL document. All statements prior to your signature you must agree to fully OR restrict your signature to say that you are signing under TDC - threat, duress, and coercion. The form that my daughter was told she needed to fill out for this daycare is posted here: ChildCareExemptForm.pdf. On this form, she crossed out all the "nots" and in her personal statement she further clarified that she understands fully the risks of vaccinating her child.

I have since found out that most public schools and daycares in other states also use a similar form. Basically, by initialing and signing this form as is, you are admitting to understanding that "vaccine preventable" diseases are extremely deadly and ALSO admitting to negligence for willfully denying your son/daughter the life saving protection that vaccines offer. These forms are MEANT to not only be intimidating but to catch the legally ignorant off guard. This is very serious to me since all states have adopted the federally funded Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act which gives states the right to literally steal your children for up to 48 hours -- the time they have to prove child neglect OR abuse.

If it were ME, I would insist that they accept a form that I provide them since it satisfies the law. If there are any problems or they insist on me using their form, I would cite the law and ask the school or daycare provider where it actually says in state statute that this particular form is the only form that will satisfy the law. Since your parental rights are at stake here, it is best to be vigilant and err on the side of being overly cautious.


A modified AAP form is posted here that you may wish to use with your doctor: AAPmodified.htm

AAPmodified.doc MSWord .DOC file  |   AAPmodified.pdf PDF file, best for printing.

Not all State employees are aware of the law and many exhibit the Hitler Complex. Take a firm stand. Some individuals have had difficulty getting the required forms. Such arrogance on the part of State employees should be reported to the Director of your state Department of Health.

See:   AnaiRhoads.org Why Signing a Waiver to Avoid Vaccines Can Be Considered Abuse
She is referring to the Refusal To Vaccinate Form developed by The American Academy of Pediatrics, not a regular religious or conscientious exemption letter or form.

Note: After reading the material in the document above, you may want to contact an organization in New York, (NY_State_Resources info) for their version of a religious exemption form.

NOTE: So called "sincerity testing" in NYS continues: Ny school exemption forms were created following a 2005 Board of Regents determination that the first application a parent submits should address basic questions about their religious beliefs. Unfortunately, schools are given wide discretion in following up with more questions, including questioning of parents in formal live depositions or written questionaires. Some school districts take this more restrictive tact. Coalition For Informed Choice (CFIC) in NYS assists parents with this new affidavit form, as well as with other tactics that a school may employ to deny you the waiver.

The Compliance Officer should determine whether or not all occupationally exposed employees have had the hepatitis B vaccination series made available to them after the training required by paragraph (g)(2)(vii)(I) and within 10 working days of their initial assignment. The term "made available" includes the healthcare professional's evaluation and arranging for the administration of the first dose of the hepatitis B vaccination series to begin within the 10 days. This includes all employees with occupational exposure, regardless of how often the exposure may occur. Part-time and temporary employees are included in this coverage. The vaccine does not have to be made available if the employer documents the exemption(s) set forth in paragraph (f)(2). It does not have to be administered if the employer can produce the signature of the employee on the mandatory declination form (See Appendix A of 29 CFR 1910.1030.)

I have been given the opportunity to be vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccine, at no charge to myself. However, I decline hepatitis B vaccination at this time. I understand that by declining this vaccine, it is alleged that I continue to be at risk of acquiring hepatitis B, a serious disease. If in the future I continue to have occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials and I want to be vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccine, I can receive the vaccination series at no charge to me."

TB can be detected by biofeedback machines that are hooked up to a computer, such as the QXCI, Best BioMeridian MSAS (Meridian Stress Assessment) or Electro Dermal Screening, Quantum Life System, and the F-Scan. You will need to ask specifically for a pathogen scan, especially TB. You will also need to request a printout with the results.

TB Test:

Note from: (Coalition For Informed Choice)
"TB testing. I supply the same info, BUT I make sure parents do not cite it with respect to their exemption application. because it would tend to negate religious sincerity. Instead, I provide them with the following argument, should the issue come up (which it almost never does):"

NYC Board of Education, Regulation of the Chancellor, Number A-710 (note that affiliation in a church is no longer required):

————————————————————————————————————————————
2.2 RELIGIOUS:

The NYC Health Code exempts from tuberculosis examination children whose parent/guardian objects to the administration of a tuberculosis examination due to bona fide membership in a specified religious organization whose teachings are contrary to tuberculosis examination or sincerely held religious beliefs which prohibit the administration of a tuberculosis examination upon his/her child. If the statement is made orally, notation, which includes the name of parent/guardian and date on which request was made, must be recorded on the child’s Cumulative Health Record, form 104S.

However, the appropriate official may require supporting documents or statements from the parent/guardian, or make an inquiry as to the basis of the religious beliefs, the bona-fide membership of the organization or the teachings of the specified religious organization. The exemption may be denied If, for example, it is determined that the opposition to tuberculin screening is based on philosophical rather than religious considerations. Questions concerning religions exemptions may be brought to the Office of Legal Services.

Immunization Handbook for NYS Post-secondary Institutions
SECTION I - Glossary


20. Mantoux Test - A screening test for tuberculosis. This is not required by state law for college admission, but the results of this test may appear on a submitted health form. This is the only reliable method for testing tuberculosis infection. (See definition #42, Tine Test.)

42. Tine Test - This test is NOT required of post-secondary students by New York State Public Health Law, but the results of the test may be noted on submitted health records. If the Tine test is used, it must be confirmed by the Mantoux method since the Tine test can have false negative results. (See definition #20, Mantoux.)

TB Testing Exemption Letter:

These sample letters are intended to be used as a negotiation tool with employers who require employees to be tested for TB. They have not been shown to work with school bureaucrats in NY State who's sole function is to carry out administrative codes. Fortunately, successfully obtaining a religious waiver from vaccination will apply towards any TB tests that employ the injection of attentuated tubercule baccillus.

See Section above for letters.
TB Testing Alternatives...

TB can be detected by biofeedback machines that are hooked up to a computer, such as the QXCI, Best BioMeridian MSAS (Meridian Stress Assessment) or Electro Dermal Screening, Quantum Life System, and the F-Scan. You will need to ask specifically for a pathogen scan, especially TB. You will also need to request a printout with the results.
