    This was already covered earlier in the thread. YOU are the one wrong.

    Text from the actual bill:

    Section 1. Section 2164 of the public health law, as amended by chap-
    ter 401 of the laws of 2015, subdivisions 6 and 7 as amended by chapter
    35 of the laws of 2019, is amended to read as follows:
    § 2164. Definitions; immunization against poliomyelitis, mumps,
    measles, diphtheria, rubella, varicella, Haemophilus influenzae type b
    (Hib), pertussis, tetanus, pneumococcal disease, meningococcal disease,
    [and] hepatitis B AND HUMAN PAPILLOMAVIRUS (HPV). 1. As used in this
    section, unless the context requires otherwise:
    a. The term "school" means and includes any public, private or paro-
    chial child caring center, day nursery, day care agency, nursery school,
    kindergarten, elementary, intermediate or secondary school.
    b. The term "child" shall mean and include any person between the ages
    of two months and eighteen years.

    That is indeed the definition of a "child" in the bill. But read the part I posted as to what age of a child would be required to have the HPV vaccine. (sections in capital letters are proposed changes). Two month olds are not required to have that vaccine in the bill.

    AS
    RECOMMENDED BY THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON IMMUNIZATION PRACTICES OF THE

    APPROVED BY THE UNITED STATES PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE FOR SUCH BIOLOGICAL

    AS MAY BE SPECIFIED BY THE PUBLIC HEALTH AND HEALTH PLANNING COUNCIL.
    The existing law covers many types of vaccines and some are required at different ages. For the HPV vaccine, that age would be the seventh grade.

    The only reason not to get the vaccine is because you don't want one. But their crazy conspiracies will be the reason the freedom to make that choice will soon disappear.
    I had the flu vaccine this year. It turned me into a newt! I got better.

    "Ah but suppose the Typhoid Mary refuses to be vaccinated; I argue she must be compelled to do so. Also, it is possible that the vaccination will not work for all possible victims. Suppose they are too sick to be vaccinated. I think it is the responsibility of the disease carrier to stop infecting other people, not the responsibility of possible victims to protect themselves.

    "I agree with you. If the disease carrier quarantines herself to her own property, we may not force her to become inoculated. But this would have to be a very serious quarantine. Typhoid Mary would not only have to stay on her own property; she would have to insure that the disease cannot be carried by air to others. Practically speaking, she could make no such guarantee. So, I think that strict adherence to the NAP would justify compelling her to stop what is in effect her aggression."

    You're just quoting the section which quotes the current CDC standards for HPV vaccination:

    AS
    RECOMMENDED BY THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON IMMUNIZATION PRACTICES OF THE
    CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION
    The CDC does not even include HPV as required for school attendance for ANYONE. But states can do whatever they want, and they have been trying to mandate the HPV vaccine for years, as it was even a hot topic of debate with Gov. Perry in Texas when he ran for president.

    This NY bill is clear - it includes daycare and young children. And that is how lawmakers are interpreting, as I quoted above with the Assemblyman from Warsaw.

    No, it doesn't. You are mis-representing what it actually says. I have posted it twice now. You choose to ignore it to suit your own purposes. Facts are problems.

    Seventh grade is the age it is to be required for. Only parts with all caps are proposed changes.

    It’s a good thing that Big Mother dictates all of those specifics. There needs to be a law dictating how many times a week kids must eat their veggies, and which ones that have to eat.

    Read the bill. Find me the section which shows what age the HPV vaccine is required to be obtained by. Hint: It is the section I posted three times now.

    The following is just a definition of terms, and not a required age:

    b. The term "child" shall mean and include any person between the ages of two months and eighteen years.
    Here is the section listing the ages for DPT:

    Every person in parental relation to a child in this state born on
    or after January first, nineteen hundred ninety-four and entering sixth
    grade
    or a comparable age level special education program with an unas-
    signed grade on or after September first, two thousand seven, shall have
    administered to such child a booster immunization containing diphtheria
    and tetanus toxoids, and an acellular pertussis vaccine,
    which meets the
    standards approved by the United States public health service for such
    biological products, and which is approved by the department under such
    conditions as may be specified by the public health AND HEALTH PLANNING
    council.
    Or is that also required by two months?

    Who the bill applies to is also clearly stated, as I have already posted here numerous times. It includes small children in day care for the future.

    And here is what New York State Assemblyman David DiPietro has said:

    New York State Assemblyman David DiPietro visited Warsaw on Thursday, Nov. 14 to discuss with the community upcoming bills mandating vaccines like the human papillomavirus and the flu.

    “This is about the parental choice aspect that has been taken away from us, [this is] downright illegal,” DiPietro said.

    His discussion was not about whether a child is vaccinated. Rather, he reiterated the fact that parents will no longer have a choice of whether their son or daughter is.

    One of the possible new state laws set to take effect in January would require kids born on or after Jan. 1, 2009 who are entering public schools or daycares to receive the HPV vaccine.
    This is being widely reported in the media, but somehow your interpretation is the right one? You didn't even know this bill had already been passed, and erroneously stated it died in committee....

    Your own link shows it still in committee- not "passed by both houses and awaiting signature by the governor". You should read your own links before posting.


    Sent to the Health Committee in January where it still sits. Never made it to the calendar of bills to be considered on the floor.

    Try reading the actual bill while you are there.

    I stand corrected. I was looking at the graphic and mis-read it.

    But the legislature is not even in session, and the bill is certainly not dead. I do hope it dies in committee...

    Walter Block has his ass handed to him on that. And he had to backtrack substantially before he was done. There is a continuum of how contagious and deadly a disease may be, and also a consideration of how dangerous the proposed preventative action. Block choose the most contagious and deadly case he could think of. He could have also used Ebola. He essentially finally concluded that mandates would only apply to the most extreme end of the spectrum.

    HPV is nowhere near that end of of the spectrum. I suspect Block would oppose mandatory HPV vaccination.

    I would say that Block’s example borders on hyperbole beyond reality. What actions and laws would be justified in a zombie apocalypse? It’s ridiculous to even consider, and ignorant to propose such scenarios when they will bolster real world totalitarian mommy government.

    And as he is primarily an economist, perhaps he should consider that a vaccination is a product, and he had proposed (in a limited and extreme situation) that government mandate purchase of that product.

    Come back when Ebola outbreaks occur in the US. That is zombie apocalypse level. Drastic, emergency measures would become necessary. Until then, it’s support for Big Mommy government.

    I know nothing about HPV or the vaccine. I am talking about vaccines in general. I listen to people who are experts. On one side you have Alex Jones, Jenny McCarthy and a maybe a fringe doctor or two. On the other side you have 99.8% of doctors and medical researchers. I tend to just listen to what experts say unless there is a compelling reason not to.

    I am inclined to think HPV isn't necessary. But measles and polio? I think those meet the threshold. And the undercurrent of these threads is always some variation of vaccines are dangerous and a plot by pharmaceutical companies in conjunction with the government to give children autism.

    You wrote that in a later post in response to another person. But that is similar to what Walter Block said: “I'm not enough of a biologist to know the specifics about these sorts of things, so I'll just make assumptions.”

    How about "thousands of doctors." And the ones who dare to come forward and challenge the controlled narrative on vaccines? "Fringe" is about the only thing you wrote that is correct. Doctors who think for themselves and do their own research rather than depend upon Pharma based propaganda are indeed "fringe."

    But for now, let's just stick with the HPV vaccine:

    Not surprised.



    One of the myths propagated by the corporate-sponsored “mainstream” media is that medical doctors are united in their support of mandatory vaccination laws.

    This is simply not true. The medical doctors and physician groups that have taken a stand against mandatory vaccination laws are almost never interviewed in the corporate media, and if they are referred to at all, they are called “quacks.”

    The largest medical association in the world is the American Medical Association (AMA), which has strong ties to the pharmaceutical industry and probably represents more lobbyists in Washington D.C. than any other trade group.

    And yet, less than 25% of the licensed medical doctors in the United States are members of the AMA, down from 75% in the late 1950s.

    So it would be incorrect to believe that the AMA represents the views of most of the physicians in the U.S. They do not.

    American Medical Revolutions: How the AMA Took Over America

    Intro:

    About 170 years ago our ancestors forced the repeal of licensing laws which had created a monopoly over the practice of medicine for orthodox physicians. Ordinary people, farmers, artisans, tradesmen and others got together and forced politicians to act on their behalf. They were tired of bloodletting, and harsh medications like mercury compounds that ruined their teeth and weakened their bodies. They opted for kinder and gentler alternatives with lower casualty rates, particularly the newly introduced homeopathy. They were impressed that tiny doses of medicine were able to cure cholera much better than the massive doses used by orthodox physicians.
