John Muir Health and Vaccine waiver in California

My continuing fight for getting John Muir Health to give me a simple letter stating that my kids shouldn't get vaccines any more.

Hello,

The information below is from our in-house legal counsel:

“SB 277 does not mandate that the physician sign the letter.

SB 277 is the bill that actually eliminates the personal beliefs exemption that parents used to rely on to exempt their kids from getting vaccinated in order to attend school. SB 277 does say that in order to exempt a child from the vaccine requirement, a parent needs to submit a written statement from a licensed physician (M.D. or D.O.) which states:
·         That the physical condition or medical circumstances of the child are such that the required immunization(s) is not indicated.
·         Which vaccines are being exempted.
·         Whether the medical exemption is permanent or temporary.
·         The expiration date, if the exemption is temporary.
MDs are NOT required to assist in requests for medical exemptions. They are legally permitted to, but not required to. “
