"If AB 16, and companion bills SB 533 and SB 676 are enacted, the following mandatory vaccine schedule will be imposed on every child from birth to 12 years old in California beginning on July 1, 2008. Every year thereafter, all new vaccines recommended by ACIP will be routinely added as well, with no limit on the number of new vaccines that can be added at one time. With over 300 new vaccines currently in development, there will be no end to the madness. If AB 16 and the others become law, in less then one year children in California will be receiving 14 more shots then they are receiving today. " - Rick Rollens

Barbara Loe Fisher Commentary:

California is on its way to becoming the first state to mandate Merck's GARDASIL vaccine for all 11 year old girls.

In a July 5 NVIC E-News, we reported that the California legislators, who were sponsors of the failed HPV vaccine mandate earlier this year, were working with drug companies and doctors to make sure the public is never able to stop a new vaccine mandate again. They are sponsoring three bills that would re- write California public health law and make sure every vaccine marketed by Merck and other drug companies that is recommended by federal health officials now and in the future would be automatically mandated despite any public opposition. The original versions of the bills have been amended in the last few days to eliminate the five year waiting period after a new vaccine has been licensed by the FDA and make ALL existing and new vaccines, including Merck's GARDASIL, recommended by the CDC automatically mandated by July 1, 2008.

Merck has been very busy in the state of California.

With heavy lobbying by drug company lobbyists making and selling vaccines, together with medical organization lobbyists whose physician members profit from administering vaccines in their offices, Representative Ed Hernandez, an optometrist (D-West Covina) and Senators Mark Ridley-Thomas (D-26th District) and Leland Yee, Ph.D., a psychologist (D-San Franciso/San Mateo) are the three politicians most responsible for helping drug companies and doctors ram three pieces of legislation (AB 16, SB 533 and SB 676) through the California legislature.

Tomorrow, July 11, members of the Senate Health Committee are scheduled to vote on AB 16, including Senators Ridley-Thomas and Leland Yee. If AB16 or companion bills SB 533 and SB 676 are enacted, all 11 year old girls in California will be mandated to use GARDASIL beginning in July 2008 and all children will be required to use every other vaccine the CDC has ever endorsed.

Following is a list of members and email links of the Senate Health Committee members, whose vote tomorrow could hand over power to mandate new vaccines to one unelected Public Health Officer employed by the state, who takes direction from unelected federal public health employees in Atlanta. br> Click on their names to register YOUR vote.

The CDC currently recommends children get 49 doses of 14 vaccines by age six. This is double the numbers of vaccines the government "recommended" 25 years ago. If AB 16 or one of the two other companion bills become law, the numbers of vaccines California children are required to get could double or triple within the next decade and there will be nothing parents can do about it.
