When it comes to health and safety, we should always put kids first. Unfortunately in our state, nonmedical vaccine exemptions are putting your children and community at risk for deadly, contagious diseases.
Children who cannot be vaccinated because they are too young or have certain medical conditions depend on the immunity of their peers and surrounding community to protect them. That’s why vaccine laws seek to make as many people immune to these diseases as possible. As misinformation and fears surrounding vaccines have spread, the number of people abusing nonmedical vaccine loopholes has increased in recent years. This has tragically resulted in outbreaks of dangerous diseases like measles that previously were almost entirely eradicated thanks to vaccines.
The evidence is clear: vaccines save lives. Laws intended to protect the most vulnerable members of our community, especially children, should put safety before personal beliefs. No harm, no exceptions. Take action now by telling your state legislators it’s time to put kids first.
Note: You will not be able to take action on this campaign if you are a constituent in California, Mississippi, or West Virginia. These are the only three states that do not have nonmedical vaccine exemptions.
