The Importance of Preserving Philosophical Vaccine Exemptions


Should parents have the right to exempt their children from vaccinations for non-medical reasons?

There is an on-going global battle. And while it has been going on relatively low-key for many years in America, a few cases of measles in Disneyland in 2014 thrust the vaccine debate into the public limelight and resulted in legislation banning personal vaccine exemptions in California.

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.

How detecting the early symptoms of GBS can help your vaccine injury claim.

One of the primary functions of the immune system is to distinguish between the body and foreign agents, keeping the individual healthy and strong while at the same time attacking and destroying outside invaders.  Guillain-Barre syndrome (or GBS) is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the body’s immune system malfunctions and begins attacking its own nervous system. In patients diagnosed with GBS, the myelin sheath that covers the nerves and assists with signal transmission is attacked during a process called demyelination. Unlike Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (or CIDP), the chronic form of the disease, GBS presents quickly and is frequently followed by some sort of infection or illness, and in some cases follows administration of a flu shot.  GBS following flu vaccination is marked by tingling and weakness in the arms and legs.  If left undiagnosed and untreated, severe forms of GBS may lead to whole body paralysis, hospitalization, or even death.
