Vaccines Make Headlines Again With New California Law

A recent California Law has outlawed a family’s personal and religious beliefs as reasons for refusing to vaccinate their child. The law requires that children enrolling in daycare or school be immunized against diseases such as measles and whooping cough. The only exemption to the requirement is for children with certain medical problems, including certain immune system deficiencies. If parents refuse to vaccinate their child, he or she loses the right to attend school or daycare and instead is relegated to a home-based private school or a public independent study program off campus.

Awards Increase for Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA) Cases

Can you be compensated for SIRVA?

It seems simple -- your doctor recommends that you get the flu shot this fall before flu season is in full swing. You receive the shot and all is well, right? Wrong. First of all, the flu shot only protects against certain strains of the flu, so you may still get sick from one of the strains that is not covered by the vaccine. Second, as with any vaccine, you may end up suffering from a serious injury to your shoulder. Fortunately, the vaccine court has been handing out higher awards recently to those who have suffered shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA).

Health Officials Urge Stages to Make Vaccine Information Public

Under current laws, the decision to exempt one’s child from the rigid and questionably-safe recommended vaccination schedule is to be kept confidential and personal. However, if Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has its way, public schools will be required to publicly reveal this information to all parents and guardians with children enrolled in a particular district – a maneuver that, depending upon your viewpoint, provides necessary health information or is calculated to bring shame and public ridicule upon parents choosing to forego vaccinating their children.
