Vaccine Legislation - Action Needed Now!


Contact your state Senators!

URGENT: New legislation has been introduced in the state of Idaho that would register every man, woman, and child in the state-run Immunization Registry (IRIS) to monitor their vaccine status. This sort of information has been used around the nation by Child Protective Services (CPS) to remove children from their parents because CPS deemed vaccination avoidance to be a form of medical neglect.

SB 1011 would require that every child in Idaho be registered in IRIS, even if you have chosen to opt them out of some or all vaccines. This would enable your child to be red-flagged by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.

SB 1012 would require all Idahoans from cradle to grave to be registered in IRIS. Can you imagine the wasted tax dollars monitoring everyone's flu vaccine status, sending out reminders, and bothering folks who have decided a different path than that suggested?

If you know anyone in the state of Idaho, please make sure to forward this to them! Please email the members of the Idaho Senate Health and Welfare Committee and ask them to oppose this legislation. A two-minute email stating why you are opposed and copied to all the committee will suffice.

Suggested talking points pick one or a few:

-This is an intrusion into your privacy.
-Your medical records belong to you and the physician of your choice.
-You do not want the state to have the power to access your medical records either through IRIS or a state health insurance exchange.
-It is an unnecessary gathering of your personal information that could be abused in future
-As more parents educate themselves about the risks of the current vaccine requirements for daycare and school in Idaho, it would be a good idea for law makers to ask their constituents why the increase in recommended vaccines are not in their children's best interest.
-While public health officials reassure that public that vaccines cause no harm, there is a Federal tax-payer funded program that compensates those who have been injured by vaccines
-There is abundant science showing cause for concern
-You have educated yourself about the best path for your family and do not need or want intrusion into these private matters from the state.

My Letter & Response from Idaho Senator

Thank you Sarah for alerting us about the proposed piece of legislation in the state of Idaho regarding a mandatory vaccine registration for every person in the state. Following is a copy of the letter I wrote to all the state legislators on your post and a reply I received the day after.

The reply sounds positive and if real, should take the teeth out of this horrible piece of legislation. It also sounds like there is a chance that one of the pieces will be reintroduced with modifications so we still have to remain vigilant. The legislator who replied (Marv Hagedorn) gave what sounded like a very sincere and personal response which I will be thanking him for.

Keep up the good work.

My Letter

Dear Sirs:

I have been alerted that your state is considering legislation to require participation in a vaccine monitoring program (SB 1011 & SB 1012). Based on my 30+ years experience as a physician and health educator, I am strongly opposed to such measures.

Vaccines have major issues with them as a treatment class including:

- a history of limited and poor quality research;

- highly respected researchers indicating minimal to poor results on many vaccines;

- special interests influencing federal health agencies to promote policies contrary to what the scientific evidence supports.

Mandating participation in a controversial health program has so many issues involved with it, I am unable to convey even a small portion of my concerns to you in this short e-mail. If there is interest, I am available to provide research to support my concerns in the hopes of preventing this measure from being enacted.

Senator Marve Hagedorn's Reply

I appreciate the time you have taken to drop me a note on these bills.

You will be happy to know that I was able to table S1012 and we have sent S1011 back to the bill sponsor to review their intent and if they desire to rewrite them to allow for complete removal of information of those who do want to opt out, we will hear the bills once more.

Thanks for being involved, we need more folks reading the bills, following the legislative process and taking the time to inform those of us here representing you on your thoughts. We don't know everything, we need your help to educate all of us on issues we might not be aware of.

I got the same response

Ha..well I dont know if it was really personal, because I got the exact same response word for word!
Perhaps he was copy and pasting. We still must stay on top of this.


Yes, we must be constantly vigilant. Pharma is working full time with the best staff money can buy.

(They are good at making the letters sound personal....)

Great work on stopping this legislation.

Now to get the people who sponsored this legislation out in the cold where they belong. Also, stay vigilant that this legislation remains tabled.

Here's my follow up letter

Here's my follow up letter thank you letter to Senator Hagedorn

"Thank you so much for your personal reply to my note and the actions you have taken regarding the vaccine monitoring bills, SB 1011 & SB 1012.

Your requirement that the sponsor of 1011 rewrite the bill to remove all information of people who want to opt out sounds like a very encouraging step. I feel it is much more important to make sure that a program like this never gets started for such a controversial treatment.

Here are just a few reasons why total prevention of this program is preferred.

1) Many highly regarded researchers support the position that many vaccines have very limited benefits and appreciable risks. If public health is the goal, there are far more cost effective and fruitful ways to achieve progress. (i.e. nutrition screenings for pregnant women)

2) Once in place, a vaccine monitoring program will be much easier to modify. Privacy, freedom and even safety from abuses guaranteed at the beginning of implementation, will be much easier to eliminate with the right special interest influence or in a momentary lapse of legislative vigilance.

3) For those in the health care field, the depth of the penetration of influence by the pharmaceutical industry on regulatory bodies, medical colleges, journals and the media in general, is truly frightening. Education is a major part of the answer to stop special interest from co-opting the US health care system. Towards this end, I am available to assist should you or any of your colleagues desire.

Thank you again."

Another Senator Responds

Hi Sarah

Here's another senator who responded to my letter.

PS - I hope you are keeping track of which senators are supportive and giving them some type of support Any type of support let's them know that their actions benefit them. Something. If not financial, then cite them in supporting letters to organizations in the state and cc a copy to them.

From Senator Sheryl Nuxoll in Idaho

"Dr. John, thanks for contacting me. I will oppose the bills. Senator Nuxoll"

I've also sent her a thank you e-mail and told her that I posted her favorable response on a health freedom oriented web site in the hopes of helping her re-election efforts.

Looks like another 2nd Amendment failure in the winds.

But at least everyone will be able to keep there guns and that seems to be all that matters.

This is probably their test

This is probably their test bed, and if successful will be rolled out to the rest of the states. This must be opposed. Will it help if people from other states voice their concerns?

Live Free or Die Trying

Great one 'GarrittF'

Nice! Love it! That’s the best damn reply I’ve ever heard, thanks for sharing. My children haven’t had vaccines in over 15 years and guess what, oooo their still aliiiiive My children have never needed any antibiotic or any pharmaceutical drug either and their superbly healthy as can be. Many years ago my first son (22yo)had a bad reaction to his vaccines and then my second son (16yo) also had a reaction, I finally stopped the madness 16 yrs ago. I also have a daughter (13) whos never had any vaccines at all and the healthiest one in the family. We were thinking of moving to Idaho one day but now will cross that sh** off my list if that law ever stands.

We Know where Bill Gates stands

Gates on vaccines


In plain english he tells us what he thinks about vaccines. Im sure he and his family don't take the shots, but he wants everybody else to take them.

The Federal Reserve Act: Act To provide for the establishment of Federal reserve banks, to furnish an elastic currency, to afford means of rediscounting commercial paper, to establish a more effective supervision of banking in the United States

Vaccines aren't necessarily safe

I have a close relative that got MS after receiving a flu shot.

The founders would be ashamed at us for what we are putting up with.

Does fishy know about this?

She's in Idaho


I am not sure who she is...I have an idea, but there are LOTS and LOTS of liberty folks here in Idaho. I actually snagged this post from an Idaho bookface page, so who knows - could have been her! Please get this somewhere visible, Michael. It is current and VERY important. Idaho has a history of vaccine and health freedom - this is a DIRECT assault on that. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. - Sarah.

You won't find me on tracebook - lol!

I don't think we've met. I sort of gave up on politics in Idaho. I used to keep an eye on the meetup, then they stopped keeping it updated and moved to facebook, and I just don't do facebook.
I'll make some phone calls, but have low expectations. Both bills say inclusion in the list is voluntary. Remember when they crammed seatbelts down our throat? We voted that down over and over, then they just passed it saying that it would not be a "primary" offense, so the people stood down. Now look where we are. But the people are no wiser. When they pass a bill that says "We demand you consent to be guinea pigs for the medical industrial complex" they will couch it with "but we will only run SAFE experiments" and everyone will go "OK, as long as it is safe..."
Idaho is an odd mix of the most awake yet blinded people...
Thanks for posting. Have you contacted Wayne at Idaho Freedom Foundation or Ingi at vaclib.com? Those are your best bet for fast, statewide notification.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

I wasn't sure...

I knew you were a fellow Idahoan - can't blame you for avoiding bookface - tracebook!lol!! Thanks for the feedback! :) And thanks to the DP folks for giving this some exposure.
