State House Rally to support removing HPV vaccine mandate
Rhode Islanders against mandated HPV vaccinations (#NOHPVmandateRI) is holding a Rally to support senate bills S2292 & S2295
Thursday March 31st 2016 at 3:15p
RI State House inside Rotunda
RI citizens will be gathering together to support the senate bills S2292 & S2295 that will remove the HPV vaccine mandate from the school schedule of vaccinations for admittance to school. These bills will also require the RI Dept. of Health to hold public hearings prior to mandating any future vaccines for school students. Both bills will be heard on Mar 31st by the senate Health and Human Services Committee at the rise of the senate, in the senate lounge on 2nd floor.
#NOHPVmandateRI encourages everyone to come out and show support of these bills, and these legislators that heard our requests and took action. Teens and adults are welcome to attend the rally and the hearing to follow.
“I am glad that RI parents and citizens spoke up and reached out to their legislators. Together by many efforts combined is how change is possible. Now the bills are scheduled to be heard, and a big part of getting them passed is by showing up and supporting them. This has been a rewarding experience to be a part of, and I will continue to work to see the bills pass.” – Aimee Gardiner, Director of Rhode Islanders against mandated HPV vaccinations.
#NOHPVmandateRI strongly recommends that any parent uncomfortable with this vaccine for their children should claim a ‘religious exemption’, which can be executed via a simple form that can be downloaded from the files section of nohpvmandateri.wordpress.com.
