To the Editor -

In reference to your May 2 article entitled, New Sandpoint student registration set Wednesday at Panhandle Health District, can anyone tell me who decided that the Panhandle Health District is the most appropriate location to register children for elementary school? Is there some overreaction to Bonner County's low immunization rates? What concerns me most is the fact that Idaho Statutes with regards to immunizations are not mentioned in your article. For your information, Idaho Code 39-4804 states that a parent or guardian must be notified before an immunization is administered to any child in this state that:
1) Immunizations are not mandatory and may be refused on religious grounds or OTHER grounds;
2) Participation in the immunization registry is voluntary;
3) The parent or guardian is entitled to an accurate explanation of the complications known to follow immunization.[emphasis mine]

The problem as I see it is that the Panhandle Health District either does not know about this law or has chosen to ignore it. I can see it now: "But officer, if the Panhandle Health District doesn't need to obey Idaho State Law, why do I need to?" Another issue is the fact that all the "information" from the Panhandle Health District appears to be slanted to the point of leaving out crucial information so that one can make a truly informed choice. Maybe if more parents would simply ask for the packet insert to the vaccine itself, they would make the obvious choice to opt out of this voodoo "medical procedure".

Benjamin Rush MD, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, said, "Unless we put medical freedom into the constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship....The Constitution of this Republic shall make special provision for medical freedom as well as religious freedom."

It appears that, unfortunately, the other "signers" didn't have the foresight that Benjamin Rush did.
