Though all 50 U.S. states recognize the natural human right of individuals to refuse otherwise compulsory vaccinations on the basis of religious, philosophical, or medical reasons — some states recognize all three reasons as valid — 95 percent of American parents still go along with the federal government’s recommended vaccine schedule for their children with no questions asked.
According to a new report issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 93.2 percent of all incoming kindergarteners for the 2011-12 school year were vaccinated with the recommended two doses of chickenpox vaccine, while more than 95 percent were vaccinated for diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis, polio, hepatitis B, and the combination measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine, the latter of which is implicated in causing autism.
Mississippi, the only U.S. state that does not allow vaccine exemptions for either religious or philosophical reasons — only for medical reasons — had a statewide total of only 16 kindergarten vaccine exemptions for the 2011-12 school year, representing a virtually 100 percent vaccination rate. Washington state, on the other hand, which recognizes vaccine exemptions for medical, religious, and philosophical reasons, had a vaccine exemption rate of 6.2 percent, the highest among the 50 U.S. states.
Between the 2009-10 school year and the 2011-12 school year, Arkansas saw the most dramatic increase in vaccine exemptions among kindergarteners with a 650 percent overall increase. Nebraska, on the other hand, witnessed a more than 50 percent drop in vaccine exemptions between 2009-10 and 2011-12.

Politicians, public health officials trying to eliminate vaccine exemption provisions across the country
- A d v e r t i s e m e n t
As more and more parents awaken to the fact that many of the recommended vaccines are extremely dangerous and could cause permanent damage in their children , the vaccine industry via its political and public health puppets is desperately trying to alter or eliminate vaccine exemption provisions in various states across the country.
Public health officials in New Mexico, for instance, recently altered their state’s vaccine exemption form to prohibit parents from citing philosophical reasons for refusing to vaccinate their children (http://www.wjtv.com ). And officials in California recently passed a bill that requires parents in the state who choose to protect their children against vaccines to first meet with a health care provider so they can be indoctrinated with pro-vaccine dogma.

As can be expected, most American parents are not even aware that they can exempt their children from vaccines because school officials, public health authorities, and others routinely lie to them and claim that vaccines are mandatory. If more parents  knew that they possess an inalienable right to refuse having their children poisoned with live viral fragments, toxic adjuvant chemicals, and heavy metals, the 95 percent vaccination rate in the U.S. would likely drop significantly.
