|In the near future, I intend to introduce legislation (former HB 2683, 2017-18) that will support parents in obtaining fair and equal access to medical treatment for their children regardless of their child’s vaccination status.
As I am sure you are aware, parents sometimes choose to exercise their legal right to delay or decline one or more vaccines for religious, philosophical, or medical reasons. These children are being denied medical care at Pediatric offices, even when presenting with urgent medical issues or needing referrals for special needs speech/ physical therapies or needing physical exams to meet school attendance requirements.
In light of recent information, especially studies and reports indicating unintended harm from Gardasil HPV vaccines, it is vital to address this violation of basic rights.
My legislation will do the following:
I believe this legislation addresses a serious problem in which some Pennsylvania children are being denied medical care. Please join me in cosponsoring this legislation.
If you have any questions please contact Gina Deppen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 717-783-1707.
Introduced as HB286
