So, You Just Received a Certified Letter from the Cali. Medical Board Asking you to Sign a Release for your Child’s Medical Records. What are your Options?

Social Media is abuzz with posts from parents who have received a certified letter from the Medical Board of California demanding that they sign an enclosed release which authorizes their child’s physician to release his/her medical records to the Board. What should you do? Actually, for a variety of reasons, I am not going to tell you what to do or give you legal advice of any kind. What I am going to do is lay out a decision tree…

Can the Cali. Medical Board Obtain Your Child’s Medical Records Without Your Consent?

Can the Cali. Medical Board Obtain Your Child’s Medical Records Without Your Consent?

This is the question de jour in light of the Sacramento Bee’s recent article revealing that the Medical Board has sought the medical records of several vaccine exemption writing physicians in Northern California. The short answer is that it can if it has “good cause”. In practice, that means the Board has to present a clear and specific reason why the medical records are needed to determine if the physician violated the standard of care, or some other law which…

A Very Short Response to the 11 Reasons Thing Circulating on FB Vaccine Aware Pages

A Very Short Response to the 11 Reasons Thing Circulating on FB Vaccine Aware Pages

Many people have asked me to comment on a post raising 11 reasons (I think that’s the number) why SB 276 is illegal. I glanced at it quickly. Although I acknowledge and appreciate the effort, most or all of the points and discussion is recyled from arguments raised and rejected in prior court cases. There were at least four challenges to SB 277 in state and federal courts, all of which were rejected. The lawyers who challenged SB 277 were…

Grandfathering of Current Medical Vaccine Exemptions under the July 1st version of SB 276? Don’t Believe it!

Grandfathering of Current Medical Vaccine Exemptions under the July 1st version of SB 276? Don’t Believe it!

Some of you might be thinking that because Secction 120372 (c)(2)(B) has been struck through, that currently exemptees are grandfathered and continue to be valid or are unreviewable. I do not think that is the case, I think there was either an error in drafting or another change small amendment is coming, but even if not, I think the department of health will take the position that it can revoke SB 277 exemptions. First, here is what was struck through/deleted…

Fast Take on the July 1, 2019, SB 276 Amendment

Fast Take on the July 1, 2019, SB 276 Amendment

Because of the press of other business, this is going to be short and quick. The new amendment is at least as bad as the prior version, because it does not change the two main operative provisions, 1. All Exemptions are still reviewable and revocable by the health department if they do not comply with the established guidelines, and 2. Physicians who write exemptions beyond these guidelines will be reported to the Medical Board for prosecution. here is the link…

What About Home Schoolers under SB 276?

What About Home Schoolers under SB 276?

Some people are worried about the effect of SB 276 on home schoolers. Let me allay those fears. The current bill does not mention, nor does it affect home schooling your own children. Meaning, you do not have to vaccinate your children under SB 276, if they are home schooled. (I am not talking about Charter Independant Study Schools, which is adifferent and more complicated question, and one which there might not yet be an answer.) At least one major…

Does Senator Pan Have a Conflict of Interest by Proposing and Advocating for SB 276?

Does Senator Pan Have a Conflict of Interest by Proposing and Advocating for SB 276?

I will tell you up-front that I will not answer the titled question in this post because I do not have personal knowledge about Senator’s Pan’s finances and business affairs. However, I will say that I have NOT seen any evidence of a conflict of interest, as that term is defined by the relevant California law. The real purpose of this post is 1. to provide the vaccine concerned community with the actual law, and 2. to respectfully suggest that…

Update on Dr. Stoller’s Lawsuit against the San Francisco City Attorney

Update on Dr. Stoller’s Lawsuit against the San Francisco City Attorney

The San Francisco City Attorney’s Office has not yet filed an answer to Dr. Stoller’s lawsuit. (It will do so in the next week or two.) And still no separate lawsuit to compel compliance with his administrative subpoena, which is what I was expecting, but I think it may still be coming. The discovery phase of most civil cases does not start until after the defendant answers the complaint. However, there is a way to start discovery sooner, and that…

To New York vaccine injured, religiously vaccine exempt families

To New York vaccine injured, religiously vaccine exempt families

As all New Yorkers who have/had a religious exemption to vaccination now know, A2371 which is now the law, eliminated the exemption. If you had the religious exemption, you probably received a letter telling you that you have until June 28, 2019 to come into compliance with the initial doses of all required vaccines. That is between 4-6 shots of maybe 8 to 10 different vaccines. That seems like alot of vaccines to receive in a couple weeks, in light…
