The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is monitoring 134 vaccine bills that have been launched around the country — and the overwhelming majority of them are seeking to decrease medical freedom. A shocking 35 states have introduced pro-vaccine bills so far in 2017, and there is no guessing what the future will bring.
So far, the states that have introduced vaccine bills that may affect your rights are: Arkansas, Arizona, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Nevada, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Vermont, Washington, and West Virginia.
NVIC currently considers eight states to be “priority opposition” states, and those states are Connecticut, Iowa, Minnesota, New York, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and Utah. These are states that have bills to restrict or remove vaccine exemptions. Arkansas had a bill of such context, but it has reportedly been withdrawn.
The organization also warns that several states have introduced bills that would serve to expand vaccine tracking or remove “OPT-IN” consent for vaccine tracking — these are also bills that need opposition. The states with these proposed bills are Connecticut, Idaho, Kansas, Massachusetts, Montana, New York, Texas and Utah.
On a different note, there are also eleven states with newly introduced bills that NVIC has declared “priority support.” NVIC reports these bills will add or expand vaccine exemptions. These states are Hawaii, Iowa, Idaho, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and West Virginia. There was also another bill proposed in Mississippi, but NVIC reports that bill has gone by the wayside.
