TALKING POINTS

  • 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.
