HSLDA's Position:
HSLDA supports this bill.

Action Requested:
No action requested at this time.

Background:
Home School Legal Defense Association had opposed this legislation which would have been used to track vaccinations received by children. HSLDA considers such record keeping of personal medical information by the state to be an unnecessary invasion of privacy. Private medical providers already do an excellent job of maintaining records on patients receiving immunizations. Had this bill passed, it was likely that the state would begin to contact families about what shots to get and when.
