      DOCTORS' GROUP VOTES TO OPPOSE VACCINE MANDATES
      November 2, 2000

      http://www.aapsonline.org/aaps/press/nrvacres.htm

      A leading national physician organization is calling for a moratorium on all
      government mandated vaccines and has passed a resolution to that end at
      their annual meeting.

      Members of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) voted
      this week at their 57th Annual Meeting in St. Louis to pass a resolution
      calling for an end to mandatory childhood vaccines. The resolution passed
      without a single "no" vote. (Resolution and mandatory vaccine fact sheet
      posted at www.aapsonline.org)

      "Our children face the possibility of death or serious long-term adverse
      effects from mandated vaccines that aren¹t necessary or that have very
      limited benefits," said Jane M. Orient, MD, AAPS Executive Director.

      "This is not a vote against vaccines," said Dr. Orient. "This resolution
      only attempts to halt blanket vaccine mandates by government agencies and
      school districts that give no consideration for the rights of the parents or
      the individual medical condition of the child."

      Forty-two states have mandatory vaccine policies, and many children are
      required to have 22 shots before first grade. On top of that, as a condition
      for school attendance, many school districts require vaccination for
      diseases such as hepatitis B -- primarily an adult disease, usually spread
      by multiple sex partners, drug abuse or an occupation with exposure to
      blood.

      And yet, children under the age of 14 are three times more likely to suffer
      adverse effects -- including death -- following the hepatitis b vaccine than
      to catch the disease itself.

      Just last week, students in Utica, NY were sent home from school, and told
      they could not return until they had been forced to receive hep B
      vaccinations. Further, parents were threatened by Child Protective Services
      with possible seizure of their children based on "education neglect."

      "It¹s obscene to threaten to seize a child just because his parents refuse
      medical treatment that is obviously unnecessary and perhaps even dangerous,"
      said Dr. Orient. "AAPS believes that parents, with the advice of their
      doctors, should make decisions about their children¹s medical care -- not
      government bureaucrats. This Resolution affirms that position."

      (Note: AAPS is a professional association of physicians dedicated since 1943
      to the sanctity of the patient-physician relationship.)
