A Book Too Dangerous to Read?

Book CoverThe Library Journal, which librarians read to decide what books to buy for their collections, announced last week that libraries should not carry the new book, The Vaccine-Friendly Plan: Dr. Paul’s Safe and Effective Approach to Immunity and Health, From Pregnancy Through Your Child’s Teen Years, which I co-authored with Jennifer Margulis Ph.D. investigative journalist and author of multiple books and an activist for children’s health and families rights.

February 17th is Vaccine Exclusion Day at Oregon Schools- Did You Know That You Can Still Get Non-Medical Exemptions? – Learn how

Feb17February 17th. is Vaccine Exclusion Day at Oregon Schools.

In 2015, I testified at the Oregon Senate health committee against SB442 that was going to get rid of the ability for parents to get a philosophical or non-medical exemption to vaccines. That bill was dropped, so we have preserved parent’s rights in Oregon to selectively vaccinate or not to vaccinate.  Medical freedom still exists in Oregon. If you ask most doctors and most school officials, you will not hear this truth.  They will tell you your child needs all the “required” vaccines or they will be excluded from school on February 17th. 2016.

The State vaccine program has been sending out warning letters to parents whose children are not fully vaccinated that these children will not be able to attend school starting February 17th. Sadly, they do not inform parents of their right to watch a state produced educational video and then print off their certificate so the schools will allow their child to attend school.

As a result of the passage of SB895 last year, students in public and private schools and certified child care facilities who had a non-medical (religious or philosophical) vaccine exemption in place before March 1, 2014 need to obtain a new non-medical exemption by next Wednesday, February 17.

You can watch the Vaccine Education Module here: http://public.health.oregon.gov/PreventionWellness/VaccinesImmunization/GettingImmunized/Modules/vaccineeducation.htm

You will have to sit there and click through the slides of the video. The length of the video depends on how many vaccines your are opting out of, and takes anywhere from 10 minutes for a single vaccine, to about an hour for all of them. Be sure your computer is attached to a printer at the time you watch this and print off several certificates, at least one for each child and an extra one for you to keep in your records. When you give this document to your school or daycare, you will also need to fill out, and sign the state certificate of immunization status: https://public.health.oregon.gov/PreventionWellness/VaccinesImmunization/GettingImmunized/Documents/SchCISform.pdf  that the schools typically provide.

Most of my patients have done lots of vaccines, just not all of them.  Fill in those that you have done.  Sign it. Turn in your certificate and wish them a good day. No, your doctor does not need to sign this form.

If your school is giving you any trouble, send them to the State web site on this topic: https://public.health.oregon.gov/PreventionWellness/VaccinesImmunization/GettingImmunized/Pages/non-medical-exemption.aspx

They can Google search “Oregon non-medical exemptions” and it comes right up!

If all this fails perhaps a visit from an attorney to level harassment charges might be the last resort.

Medical freedom and informed consent must be our guide, not misinformed schools and physicians who don’t even know the law or the rules. I’m being nice when I say they don’t know the laws and the rules.  Perhaps they are being dishonest and manipulative.  I’d like to think not.

Join Dr. Thomas for the Autism Intensive Expert Interview Series!

Autism-Intensive-AllJanuary 10-18: The Autism Intensive

Why the Autism Intensive Summit?

Autism spectrum disorders are the fastest growing developmental disorder in the world today.

In the United States a child is diagnosed every 11 minutes. For the past three decades the rates have increased at an accelerating rate and are currently 1in 68 children; 1 in 48 boys and 1 in 189 girls are affected.

This is the first online Autism Summit. The compilation of experts across multiple disciplines with cutting edge and innovative therapies make this summit unique, with a comprehensive, inclusive, credible approach to a much-debated issue.

Learn from video interviews with Functional  Medicine visionaries and innovators that are experts in root cause resolution. 

Autism spectrum disorders are a complex chronic condition with a large variation in symptoms. The cause remains elusive. A series of scientific studies over the last decade document that the increase is a real and cannot be attributed to better diagnosis.

There is a need to think deeply and objectively about this disorder. We know that multiple body systems are impacted, including: brain, nervous, immune, gastrointestinal, oxidation/reduction, inflammation, and mitochondria

We have assembled an outstanding group of doctors, parents, clinicians, chiropractors, nutritionists, and researchers that can shed light on this complex chronic condition. Our experts discuss the environmental connection and share with you cutting edge information about what you can do to improve the health and well being of your child.

Learn the latest, most up to date information about autism spectrum disorders, including ADHD. Discover how early intervention and treatment, and life-long support can make a difference for individuals with autism and their families.

The real answers are likely not being offered by mainstream medicine. We have traveled the country to interview 35 respected and trustworthy practitioners. It can often seem like there’s no options and no one else to turn to, The Autism Intensive Summit will help you get to the root of dysfunction in you child by giving you information you need to address:

  • Diet, nutrition, supplements, neutraceuticals, pharmaceutical, helminth therapy, essential oils
  • Healing the leaky gut
  • How to detoxify/eliminate heavy metals and environmental pollutants in food, air and water.
  • Treating chronic infections.
  • Hear from parents how they have been able to make dramatic positive changes in their children.
  • Understand biochemical and physiological basis for efficacy of biomedical interventions
  • How to begin a comprehensive approach
  • Body oriented therapies

There are many reasons why we seeing an alarming increase in autism spectrum disorder, by sharing this information we can do something about it! Collectively we know enough to prevent and remediate autism spectrum disorders.

How to Get Your Oregon Exemption for Vaccines

vaccine3Is your school threatening to kick your child out for missing vaccines?

Have you received the State letter from Immunization Alert informing you of which vaccines your child needs or they will be excluded from school?

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!

We are not living in NAZI Germany. The State does not have the right to force vaccines on your child without your consent and there is a way to get an exemption from the State “mandated” vaccines.

Oregonians for Medical Freedom, (I am a co-chair) succeeded in shutting down SB 442 that would have required all vaccines to attend school. While a law was passed so schools could post how many under-vaccinated or unvaccinated children they have in their school, they are not allowed to post your specific information nor should they harass you as I’m hearing has been happening.

Thankfully we still live in a relatively free country (although those freedoms are fast evaporating as happened in California where children must get all vaccines to attend daycare or school).

If you live in Oregon and you have thoughtfully considered which vaccines to give your child and which to delay or not do at all, then you can get your exemption by watching the State video and printing off a certificate for each of your children. Take this certificate to your school and let them know your child has a constitutionally protected right to an education and that you have met the State requirements for an exemption. Have them make a note of it and you should NOT stand and listen to any non-sense about anything from an uneducated secretary, teacher, or principal. If you have been one of my patients, you almost certainly know a lot more about vaccines, and which ones make sense and which do not, than most doctors in the country let alone non-medical folks!
