Illinois Bills Supported by IC4IC:


No to adopting Resolution 179

March 6th 2019 US Congressman Adam Schiff submitted a vaccine resolution to Congress. This is the first step to taking away your exemptions. Read resolution 179 here:

Please note that this is NOT a bill, but what this does is asks legislators to all agree on the ideas and points made in this resolution. —recognizing the "Importance of Vaccines”. The resolution, if passed, will "send a message of unequivocal Congressional support for vaccines and urges parents, in consultation with their health care provider, to follow scientific evidence and the consensus of medical experts in favor of timely vaccinations for the well-being of their children and surrounding communities”, which sets the stage for them introducing a federal bill.

With this new resolution, Tammy Duckworth is jumping on the bandwagon and is expected to introduce another measure ⬇️ see below

Senators Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) and Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) are expected to introduce a companion measure in the upper chamber.

Bipartisan lawmakers introduce resolution supporting vaccines.

It's time to SPEAK UP and make our rounds of calls and emails to say NO📢 to resolution 179 (recognizing the importance of vaccination)

Talking Points

**No to adopting Resolution 179***

  • As Rand Paul stated, "We Shouldn’t Trade ‘Liberty’ for ‘False Sense of Security"

  • Informed consent; to be fully informed of any and all medical procedures with the right to decline such procedures

  • Autonomy over ones body

  • Government interference into personal medical decisions with known risks

  • Immunizations are not continually monitored for adverse events as the resolution states, and in fact, vaccine manufacturer's are not liable for their product by law.

  • There is credible evidence that immunizations can and do cause adverse events, including (seizures, encephalitis, the disease itself etc..) , per the vaccine manufacturer's insert. Until it is understood which persons will receive these adverse events, immunizations should not be mandated for all.

**- contradictory statements by US government stating that vaccines are unavoidably unsafe, while also repeating the mantra of safety and efficacy ("vaccines are safe and effective "
" All vaccines are unavoidably unsafe"
-Informed consent in healthcare is the law, codified by the 1914 Schloendorff vs. The Society of the New York Hospital case. It is also an important ethical consideration for doctors and healthcare providers

  • 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.

" Sec. 2f. Human papillomavirus vaccination. The Department of Public Health shall adopt a rule requiring students, upon entering the 6th grade of any public, private, or parochial school, to receive a human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination. The Department shall adopt the rule in time to allow students to receive the vaccination before the start of the school year beginning in 2022."

"Beginning with the 2020-2021 school year, a parent or legal guardian who objects to immunizations on religious grounds must submit with the Certificate of Religious Exemption a certificate of completion of an online immunization seminar issued by the Department of Public Health under Section 2.5 of the Communicable Disease Prevention Act.

Online immunization seminar. The Department of Public Health shall develop and implement an online seminar that contains information on the risks and benefits of immunizing children against preventable communicable diseases. The Department shall issue a certificate of completion to those parents or legal guardians completing the seminar who must submit a certificate of completion under subsection (8) of Section 27-8.1 of the School Code."

Please call the bill sponsor (info above), and use this link to find your Representative and let them know you OPPOSE this bill.


1) This is already in place via the 'Health and Immunization Code 665.510' as parents are currently required to sit through a risk versus benefit lecture prior to their IDPH religious exemption form being signed by the pediatrician.

2) A similar law was passed in Michigan and doctors have stated it had very little success swaying vaccine hesitant parents, and that most parents who are choosing not to vaccinate are already highly educated on this matter.

3) This certificate of completion would violate privacy of parent's personal and medical security information.

4) This bill should only apply to those states with philosophical exemptions which Illinois does not have. A religious exemption is for religious reasons which is a Constitutional right, and forcing education on vaccinations is disrespecting their sincerely held religious beliefs.
