Provide non-medical (religious/philosophical) vaccination exemptions

    1. Petition by

      C R

      Wheeling, WV

48 other states and the United States Military allow for non-medical vaccination exemptions. West Virginians deserve the same rights as those citizens. There are legitimate religious and philosophical reasons to selectively vaccinate. But in West Virginia, those with religious or philosophical objections to some or all vaccines are not permitted to send their children to public school. This must change!  

We ask that the WV Legislature draft and pass a bill to provide parents with non-medical vaccination exemptions.

      I don't want to vaccinate my 6 month old son. I pay taxes and I still want him to be able to attend public school. It is our religious right to deny these chemicals in our bodies.

      Vaccines are a medical procedure and as a parent, I have that right to consent. The govt and drug companies need to back off of our children and start protecting the ones who truly need it

      I believe in a parents right to choose. I believe that some children are allergic to the vaccination. my daughter has autisim and i believe that she was well and functioning fine until the night after her vaccination.
