Vaccines should be a choice for parents. We should have the RIGHT to DECIDE!!!
1215. CeCe Hillman from Neshoba, MS signed this petition on Friday, January 15, 2016.
Even though I am not a parent yet, this is a huge fear that I have for my future children. My life was forever changed after I received the Gardasil Vaccine. I had my first stomach spell and broke out in a cold sweat after the first shot; then, I passed out for the first time ever after receiving the second shot of Gardasil, and after the third and final shot I got to the point that fatigue sat in. I could no longer hold my back up straight or stay up late two nights in a row without being extremely ill for a week later. I watched my health decline with no clear answer from age 13-18. No doctor would tell me what was wrong except that my heart raced a lot, I felt sick every time I ate, I woke up in a cold sweat almost every night with severe stomach pain, and I vomited every single morning for over a year and a half. I had no energy anymore. In fact, I had to resort to putting my makeup on in the bed; then, I got to were I couldn't even wear makeup. Then, I found myself wheelchair bound and bed ridden at age 18. My health just kept declining until I reached that point. Now, I know I have Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome and doctors are pretty sure it was caused by that vaccine. Therefore, I lost my whole life as I knew it due to a vaccine. I tried to get better and push myself to attend college and I made it a little while with some breaks in between. I was a 4.0 student at college, but due to my illness caused by vaccine injury I couldn't stay at college. I now spend most of my days in bed. I try to work when I can at my family's business, but that isn't very often anymore. When I was in college, I might have had a 4.0 and been ranked number one in the class, but I was under disability services to handle my absences and let me test in a quite room and have extended test time because sometimes my brain just freezes up. I will know something, and then, it will be gone. However, I'm not a quitter. I would then work on other parts of my test that I currently remembered and then come back to the question that I knew the answer to but had temporarily forgotten. Oh and how I said I passed out the very first time from the second Gardasil vaccine, I wish I could say that was the first and last time I passed out, but things have only gotten worse. I pass out now on average of 10 times a week. Sometimes I pass out a lot more than that, but I don't want to scare people too much about how bad it really is. Some of these passing out episodes even make my eyes roll back in my head and make my body jerk all over- seizure like episodes. After being injured by a vaccine, I started my research and I found out a lot more than I truly wanted to know. I found out what all is really in these vaccines that we take as babies, and my honest first statement after reading this was, "I'm surprised I made it to thirteen without having health problems." There are so many toxins in these vaccines. It is pure scary. No one would actually pick that up and put it in their body if these items were all labeled and laying out buffet style for everyone to serve themselves. Then, you look at the deaths and injuries caused by these vaccines. However, once you actually sit down and find out what is in them, you are sadly not shocked at that, but instead, you are shocked that someone would come up with the idea to put this into little tiny babies bodies. I am not completely against all vaccines, but I believe that with so much at stake, we should be able to make informed decisions and alternate the schedule. I feel that should be a parents own choice.

Mississippi has the highest childhood vaccine rate in the world along with a corresponding infant mortality rate. Vaccine choice is a human rights issue; it does not mean I am anti-vaccine.

This should not be a decision for the government to make. It's a parental right. I want the right to decide what if my child receives vaccines or not. Its taking away our rights as parents to not have vaccine exemptions and then be forced to get them if our child has to go to public school or day care. Thank you.

No one knows a child better than a mother. If she feels that the vaccine caused the child harm then she should have the right to chose. If the child does get one more vaccine and it causes the child to have a serious reaction or even death what do you think she is going to feel like the cause was. Even if it's not a common side effect it doesn't mean that it don't happen. Each child should be treated individually. Not every one has text book reactions. Grown ups have reactions to meds that doctors find hard to believe but no one knows one better than yourself and mothers know how children tolerate things better than any textbook will ever be able to tell. Please consider this when considering if it's mandatory or not. No one will never fully understand until it happens close to home and then it will be too late.

1193. Linda Forman from Franklin, MS signed this petition on Monday, November 09, 2015.
Parents should have the right to decline if they wish to not have certain vaccines administered to their child. The reactions to some of the vaccines is worse than having the disease itself.

We are the voice of our children. We are their voice. It is our right to choose what's best and protect our children.

We have a right as parents to decide what we feel is right for our children. We as parents are allowed to choose what school and activities our child is involved in, what food or drink our child ingests, why not allow a parent the right to refuse so many vaccinations at one time. As a nurse, I agree that vaccinations have helped our population, but also as a nurse, I believe that babies/children are given way too many vaccinations at one time. I agree with vaccinating my child, but I also think I as a parent should have a right to request that the vaccination schedule be changed. As a member of the healthcare community, I can't help but ask how you expect a medical professional- MD- to distinguish what a child had a reaction to if we are giving so many vaccines at one time. You wouldn't want your child exposed to multiple allergens at one time and then never know what specific allergen caused the reaction. As a parent, it is our duty to protect our children. Wouldn't you do anything and everything possible to protect your child/children? Why is it that our children aren't being protected until it's too late and the harm has already been done? What's the reasoning behind so many doses at once? Is it because our pediatricians are too busy and don't want to be bothered with a spaced out vaccination schedule? Is it for government population control? Our children are our future and we are called by God to protect them. We as their parents are their voice.

Mississippi has the highest vaccination rate because of strict mandates and the highest infant mortality rate. This is not just coincidence. When there is a risk for injury, there must be a choice. The state has no place deciding which medical choices families make. This is America not Nazi Germany!

I firmly believe that everyone has the right to choose what is right for themselves, their children and their families. I am a one issue voter until this is rectified. The State's current position is a one size fits all mentality that leaves injured children in it's wake.
