#OpposeHB4425: In 2017, Michigan’s new vaccination waiver rules for school enrollment are working! Since 2015, waivers have been reduced by over 30%, keeping our kids and our communities healthy and safe. Yet, some Michigan legislators don’t see this as a benefit and hope to undo the new rules with MI House Bill 4425.
If you’d like to see vaccination rates up and waiver rates down, please email or call your Michigan House Representative (they just got back from spring recess!): http://www.house.mi.gov/mhrpublic/. Don’t be too shy or too busy when it comes to speaking up for kids! We will even give you a script:
“Hi, my name is ____, I’m a voter in your district calling/writing to oppose House Bill 4425, which would undo the MDHHS rules requiring parents to receive a complete education before obtaining a vaccination waiver.
As a _____ (parent/grandparent/teacher/doctor/concerned citizen, etc), I am concerned that removing these rules would harm the safety of children and communities, and would be especially detrimental to those who are too young or too sick to be vaccinated.
Please don’t let Michigan take a huge step back. I’m counting on you to stand up for the safety of our kids.”
