UPDATED: Senator Pan’s New Amendment to Change SB 276 (after it passes)

I am not a California legislative expert and I am not sure what is going on, but today, I received an automated notice as a SB 276 bill watcher of an amendment. Originally I thought that Senator Pan blinked and made the changes requested by the Governor. But then I am not sure what changes the Governor wanted. So I am doubly unsure. The amended bill has a different bill number, SB 714, and it says it will only go…

My Second Take on Senator Pan’s SB 714 and I May Even Be More Confused

My Second Take on Senator Pan’s SB 714 and I May Even Be More Confused

It was pointed out that the language in (2) does not require vaccination by the Fall 2020 as I perhaps misstated in my prior post. I think they are right and I was wrong, mostly, but frankly, I am still not sure. Let’s start with the language: “(2) Commencing January 1, 2020, a child who has a medical exemption issued before January 1, 2020, shall be allowed continued enrollment to any public or private elementary or secondary school, child care…

FDA v. California Stem Cell case update

FDA v. California Stem Cell case update

Honestly, I lost interest in this case after the federal judge in the Florida US Stem Cell case granted summary judgement to the FDA and issued a permanent injunction barring the use of the stem cell/SVF product, which is basically the same stuff used by the California group. I assumed that the California federal judge would agree with the Florida judge. I am still making that assumption, but I did learn a few interesting things from my cursory review of…

The Final SB 276 Push: What Might Help with the Legislators and What Won’t

The Final SB 276 Push: What Might Help with the Legislators and What Won’t

By all accounts, SB 276 will come out of the suspense docket next week. That means it goes for a vote in the Assembly and presumably back to the Senate to consider the amendments made during its travels through the Assembly, then to a Senate vote, and if it passes, on to the Governor’s desk. Caveat: I am not an expert on the California legislative process. Nonetheless, I do have opinions on what I think might impress the legislators and…

NY Adopts California like SB 276 Limitations on Vaccine Medical Exemptions via “Emergency” Regulation”???

NY Adopts California like SB 276 Limitations on Vaccine Medical Exemptions via “Emergency” Regulation”???

On Friday August, 16, 2019, New York State Department of Health issued “emergency regulations” concerning the issuance of vaccine medical exemptions. The short of it is that NY has basically done what California SB 276 will do (and what the original version of SB 277 tried to do) via regulation, thereby circumventing the legislative process. The regulation limits medical exemptions to ACIP other nationally recognized guidance documents establishing the standard of care.” Here is the Health Department’s summary of the…

To All California Physicians: Watch out for Scammers Claiming to Be DEA Agents and Demanding $25k

To All California Physicians: Watch out for Scammers Claiming to Be DEA Agents and Demanding $25k

As if physicians didn’t have enough to worry about, apparently there is a scam being being run on California physicians. They are getting a call from someone claiming to be a DEA agent stating that the physician is under investigation. The caller requests a $25,000 bond, maybe to make the investigation go away. Here is what the Medical Board of California says about it: “Fake DEA Agents Extortion Scam The Medical Board of California (Board) has learned that scam artists…

The US Stem Cell Judge Denies the Motions to Intervene by the SVF Owners Subject to….?

The US Stem Cell Judge Denies the Motions to Intervene by the SVF Owners Subject to….?

On July 31st, the US Stem Cell judge issued an “Omnibus Order” denying “without prejudice” all of the SVF’s Motions to Intervene in the case. Here is her order: orderdenyingintervention What is happening is confusing, even to an FDA litigator like me. But, for what it’s worth, here is my explanation of what’s going on and why we’re here, (whereever “here” is). First, I think that neither party specifically informed the judge that the company was banking SVF product for…

No, you were not just subpoenaed by the California Medical Board

No, you were not just subpoenaed by the California Medical Board

I have previously written about the Medical Board’s attempt to trick, cajole, and intimidate families whose children have a vaccine medical exemption into agreeing to execute a consent/authorization to allow your child’s doctor to release medical records to the Board. Here is that post: https://rickjaffeesq.com/2019/07/16/so-you-just-received-a-certified-letter-from-the-cali-medical-board-asking-you-to-sign-a-release-for-your-childs-medical-records-what-are-your-options/ The bottom line is that you are not legally required to sign the release, and there is nothing the Board can do to you to force you to do so. Specifically, the Board cannot issue…
