South Carolina: Urgent--Calls Needed to Stop Immunization Bill

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Your calls are needed today to stop South Carolina Senate Bill 1046
which would create a state immunization registry to track vaccinations
received by children. Such record keeping of personal medical
information by the state is an unnecessary invasion of privacy.

Private medical providers already do an excellent job of maintaining
records on patients receiving immunizations. We don't want the state
to begin harassing citizens about what shots to get and when.
Additionally, the increase in the number of state employees required
to administer this tracking program will result in higher operating
expenses to the state and possibly higher taxes for citizens.

Unfortunately, this bill is moving very fast. Yesterday it passed the
second reading in the Senate and today is scheduled for the third and
final reading. Your calls to senators expressing your opposition to
this bill is the only way this bill will be defeated at this point.

ACTION REQUESTED

1. Please contact your state senator with this message:

"Please vote against Senate Bill 1046 which would create a state
immunization registry for children. Such record keeping of personal
medical information by the state is an unnecessary invasion of
privacy. Private medical providers already to an excellent job of
maintaining records on patients receiving immunizations.

2. Please forward this email to other homeschooling families who are
not members of HSLDA and ask them to contact their state senator as
well.

To find the name and contact information for your state senator, use
HSLDA's Legislative Toolbox at http://www.hslda.org/toolbox, or you
may contact the Clerk of the Senate at (803) 212-6200.
