SB1659 has been assigned to Public Health. This bill was introduced by State Senator Julie Morrison and *NOW* Senator Iris Y. Martinez has added herself as Chief Co-Sponsor for this HPV vaccine MANDATE.
Several IL constituents have reached out to IC4IC with word that their legislators (including the sponsor of the bill) stated that this bill has been tabled or dropped. Contrary to these many reports, this bill is still moving in a forward direction.
We need you to keep calling until the bill status states otherwise. This bill is still ACTIVE. Please keep calling their offices and let them know you OPPOSE this bill.

The current verbiage for this bill does NOT allow Religious or Medical exemptions! MANDATED for ALL 6th grade boys and girls
NO other states have the HPV required for school enrollment as this is an elective vaccine.
Many families who fully vacciante choose to opt out of this vaccine due to the severe side effects reported.
Requiring this for school entry will drastically drive up the states very low exemption rates.
The CDC has a nation-wide recommendation that ALL (boys and girls) age 9 to be vaccinated with the HPV vaccine.
Last year an HPV education bill was passed in which education materials is given to ALL children and parents at several locales including doctor’s offices, schools, or anywhere IDPH decides it is necessary to educate the community.
Several countries removed HPV from their recommended schedule, and France, India, Japan, and Spain have each filed criminal charges against HPV vaccine manufacturers for fraud, safety issues, and providing misleading information.
