Texans for Vaccine Choice (TFVC) has a great newsletter for those who wish to learn and stay informed and involved. Vaccines are a choice, friends. That’s why informed consent is so important. Do your research and then make a choice.
Today’s wall of shame contender is sadly my growing-up hometown: Lufkin, Texas.
What makes the Lufkin ISD eligible for the Hall of Shame? I’m glad you asked!
Lufkin ISD makes it appear that in order for a child to attend school, they must have an “up-to-date immunization record with a current TB test result”. This is patently not true according to Texas Law.
Texas has no requirement for a TB test in order to enroll in public schools.
Exemptions are definitely possible. Your child does not have to be fully vaccinated (or vaccinated at all) in order to attend school in the state of Texas. Texas public schools, including charter schools, are required to accept the exemption form.
You can learn more about exemptions here: (Thank you TFVC!) https://texansforvaccinechoice.com/exemptions/
If you aren’t sure about vaccines, do your research.
If you trust the vaccine schedule because your doctor or school said so, as it stands….. do your research.
If you think vaccines are safe and effective….. do your research.
If you don’t know where to start researching, I’m happy to help. There are lots of resources out there once you know where to look.
