Discussing his book, “How The ‘Pox’ Epidemic Changed Vaccination Rules,” April 5, 2011, https://www.npr.org/2011/04/05/135121451/how-the-pox-epidemic-changed-vaccination-rules Historian Michael Willrich says:

“Public health officials can and should do more to inform the public that the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Medical Association and the CDC all believe that vaccines are safe. I think this is the time for doubling their efforts to spread the good word about vaccines and also have a candid public discussion about the risks and benefits, . . . . “There’s no more opportune moment than the present to launch a new publicity campaign around vaccines. … Viruses spread in human populations from person to person and if you have a vast majority of a community vaccinated against that virus, the virus will simply never have a toehold in that community.”

VACCINES HAVE BEEN AROUND SINCE THE YEAR 1000

Take a look at a timeline of epidemics and vaccines showing the history of vaccines going back to the year 1000.

SINCE 1922, THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT AND STATE APPELLATE COURTS HAVE RULED THAT COMPELLING VACCINATION TO ATTEND SCHOOL IS CONSTITUTIONAL

1922. Zucht v. King, 260 U.S. 174 (1922), was a Supreme Court case in which the United States Supreme Court found that the school district of San Antonio, Texas, could constitutionally exclude unvaccinated students from attending the schools in the district and, for the protection of public health, deny admission to school to children who failed to provide a certificate of vaccination.

1944. Prince v. Massachusetts, 2321 U.S. 158 (1944),was a Supreme Court case in which the United States Supreme Court found that the government has broad authority to regulate the actions and treatment of children, that parental authority and the right to practice religion freely does not include the liberty to expose the community or the children to communicable disease, ill health, or death and can be Constitutionally restricted if doing so is in the interests of children’s welfare.

1987. Maricopa County Health Department vs. Harmon, 156 Ariz. 161 (1987), was a case where an Arizona Appellate Court determined that it is prudent to combat the spread of disease due to a measles epidemic that occurred in Maricopa County, by denying un-vaccinated children a place in school until the risk for the spread of measles has passed, finding that the state’s need to protect against the spread of disease took precedence over an individual’s right to education.

2018. Brown v. Smith, 24 Cal. App. 5th 1135 (2018), was a case in which a California appellate court rejected an anti-vaccination group’s claims that the California mandatory-vaccination law, which abolished all non-medical exemptions for school admission, violated the right to due process, right to privacy, right to a public education, and right to free exercise of religion under the California Constitution.

ALL FIFTY STATES IN THE UNITED STATES MANDATE VACCINATIONS FOR CHILDREN TO ENROLL IN SCHOOL

This Grandma lives in the South.

“Only 33% of the 12- to 17-year-olds were given the Covid-19 vaccine here in the South, in most of the southern states, compared to 80% in the northeast. So once again, you have this geographic divide where parents are holding back on vaccinating their adolescents,” Hotez 3[Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Texas] said. “I have to believe they’ll probably hold back on vaccinating the younger kids as well.” See, “Fewer Covid-19 hospitalizations, more vaccinations show US may be turning corner in pandemic but experts warn: ‘We’re still in two Americas’,” by Jacqueline Howard, CNN, October 7, 2021.

The author quotes President Biden:

“With vaccinations, we’re going to beat this pandemic finally. . . .Without them, we face endless months of chaos in our hospitals, damage to our economy and anxiety in our schools, and empty restaurants and much less commerce.”

The COVID-19 pandemic has killed more than 700,000 Americans.

According to Jacqueline Howard, who directs us to a study by the American Academy of Pediatrics, “COVID-19-Associated Orphanhood and Caregiver Death in the United States.”

And in many instances, they were parents. Yesterday, a new study revealed more on the devastating impact of COVID-19 on kids. Since the start of the pandemic, more than 140,000 children in the US are estimated to have lost a parent, grandparent, or caregiver who provided things like basic needs, housing, and everyday care because of the virus. That’s about one in 515 kids. The real number could be higher. “

Do we want more deaths of children to join that number?
