Skip to comments.California schools to turn away children without whooping cough vaccine

Some California schools are turning away middle and high school students who have not received a required whooping cough vaccine while others are defying a law passed last year after a historic spike in cases of the potentially fatal disease.
The law approved last September initially required all students entering grades seven through 12 to get vaccinated by the start of the 2011-2012 school year.
Lawmakers passed a 30-day extension this summer as districts worried many students wouldn't meet the deadline.

It’s mostly white rich kids in liberal families.
As they should.
Turning away kids because they are not vaccinated could be a good strategy for home-schoolers.
OMG, they are forcing injections upon young children!! This is a clear violation of their individual freedom and liberty!! /s
i guess home schooling will be legal in California, anyway
I agree with it too; all it takes is one unvaccinated kid to end up getting sick off of something they picked up and then it not only exposes the other kids, but also ends up setting up the school to be sued by the parent of the sick kid, if the unvaccinated kid gets sick.
Maybe there should home-hospitals to take care of sick kids raised by dumb parents.
They had to insist on the shots, it’s the illegals whom are the carriers. They certainly aren’t going to turn them away at the boarders...to many votes don’t you know.
Ah...the only vaccinations then are cocaine and pot.
“They had to insist on the shots, its the illegals whom are the carriers. They certainly arent going to turn them away at the boarders...to many votes dont you know.”
That’s also why Texas has a very unique problem with HPV.
I rather agree; vaccines have eradicated these diseases and I have to wonder really about the mentality of parents who don’t want their kids vaccinated from these illnesses. It sounds reckless on teh part of the parents and really, at what point will they learn the value of it? When their kid is in a coffin, is that what it will take?
My son could not play sports without the shots first this summer. Fact is, the children do not need the shots if the parents sign a form they oppose vaccinations.
The illegals get to go to school without the shots by signing a simply form putting all the other children at risk.
Which means that until the illegals are thrown out we have to vaccinate our kids, if only to protect them from the carriers who cross our borders illegally. That is actually what makes it such a priority.
The irony will be lost. Maybe someone will come into this thread and argue California is overstepping it’s bounds.
Yesterday there was an article about a mother dressing up her son in a dress, and nobody said the governemnt should stay out of it because parents have the right to do what they want to their children.
Not like it was a new vaccine on the market.
Exactly, it’s the illegals putting our kids at risk. I never realized it before, but that is a huge reason that I am supportive of vaccinations. Our kids a precious and need to be protected.
“Not like it was a new vaccine on the market.”
I know, which makes me wonder why parents are objecting so much all of a sudden.
