Last week I received an email from a concerned citizen. They were requesting assistance to help stop the local health department from “targeting unvaccinated students during normal school hours.”
They were NOT overstating or exaggerating.
The citizen included a copy of the letter from the Clinton County Health Department.
The “Memorandum of Understanding,” or contract between the Clinton County Health Department and The Rossville Consolidated School Corporation, spelled out the exact concerns of the citizen.
The school corporation is being offered compensation for targeting students ‘needing’ vaccinations.
Plan and host at least one mobile, in-school immunization, even in cooperation with the Health Department that occurs during regular school hours to TARGET students who need immunizations during the school year.”
In exchange for the school's cooperation, the school corporation can receive up to $1000 in reimbursement for school nurse expenses PER CAMPUS.
That means that each of the campuses in the school district may receive up to $1000 for TARGETING students who “need vaccinations.”
What is the criteria for the amount reimbursement?
Is it the number of vaccinations administered?
Does this place a bounty on your student’s head?
The contract also states that the schools will plan and host an “Open House/Registration immunization record forecasting event”.
While we aren’t sure what all this could entail, we assume at a minimum means that they will use school registration or back-to-school nights as a means of data collection.
Sadly, this already happens.
Every year when students return to school, parents are asked to release CHIRP records.
CHIRP is the Child and Hoosiers Immunization Registry Program. The school nurse uses the CHIRP records to determine if students are up to date on vaccinations per the CDC schedule.
If students are ‘behind’ on vaccinations, then their parents are sent threatening letters.
Many parents simply don’t want vaccinations for their children. They are bullied and pressured into getting them out of fear from being expelled from school, just as the letters threaten.
Many parents don’t know that Indiana has religious exemptions to vaccination and this right can be exercised easily. Visit h4ml.org/exemptions to learn more.
Many parents don’t know that the school updates and inputs vaccination records into CHIRP and so do physicians. This information is collected by the state and then data is shared for national reporting.
The good news is that current law does not require you to report or participate in CHIRP, however, you are automatically entered without your consent.
Opting out is simple, for more information check here.
The contract between the schools and the department of health is renewable every year unless either the school or the health department opts out in writing.
Worse yet, we have every reason to believe that contracts just like this one will be popping up in nearly every school across the state thanks to “Health Worst Funding” instituted by SB4 and the Governor’s Public Health Commission.
If you would like us to help you activate your county to stop these initiatives, we will partner with you.
