ABC reports that before Senate Bill 277 is even in effect, children are being sent home from school despite having vaccine exemptions on file.
Unvaccinated Kids Sent Home
Imagine sending off your little one for their first days of school only to have them humiliated and sent home because they’re missing a vaccine. Even though Senate Bill 277 is not in effect and they have their proper exemptions on file.
That’s what happened to parents across the state of California this past week.
Despite the fact the parents had filed the exemptions, the schools didn’t have their records updated (shocker!) so 100 plus or so children were pulled from the schools.
In the video above, ABC says that other children were pulled from other schools around the state of California as well. Sources tell us that those children also had their exemptions, but alas, their records weren’t updated and parents are saying the schools are to blame.
From the article:
As many as 100 students were removed from their classrooms and told to call their parents, according to protesters.
“The problem that I had with the way that it was handled yesterday is that they removed the children from class and sent them to the auditorium for missing one vaccine, and I feel that’s kind of a violation of their privacy because my daughter’s teachers and her friends, nobody, needs to know her health history. That’s her private information, that’s information between myself, her pediatrician and possibly the school’s records office,” one mother said.
“These children that were pulled out already had a personal beliefs exemption on file, and the school still decided to pull them out from their classes and have them call their parents, and ask them for proof of vaccination or to come and pick them up from school,” parent Martha Jaureguy said.
According to LAUSD, current state law requires all students to have the Tdap vaccine, unless their parents file for a personal beliefs or medical exemption.
It might not seem like a big deal, but I had one mom who told me that it was humiliating to have to go pick up her little girl and have her embarrassed in front of her peers as she was singled out and forced to leave the school and go home for the day like she’d done something wrong.
Her daughter didn’t understand what she’d done wrong and was in tears as she had to go home and miss school despite having her paperwork filed and everything in order.
What will happen when the laws go into effect until next August?! (2016)
Many are saying their children are grandfathered in if they are already enrolled until they finish that school (for instance, if a child is in grade school they might be grandfathered in until grade 6 or 8 depending on the school) but others are more fearful that trouble will arise. I even had one reader of the site post publicly that she’s already having problems with the law for next year and has her lawyer on speed dial. When SB277 goes into full effect next year it will be interesting to see how things play out. Our hearts go out to all the parents out there and we do feel that it should be the parents’ right whether or not to vaccinate their child.
