South Carolina: Urgent--Immunization Bill Passes Senate

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Unfortunately, Senate Bill 1046, which would establish a state
immunization registry for South Carolina children, passed the Senate
yesterday. It has been sent to the House of Representatives for
consideration. At this time we do not know to which committee the bill
will be assigned. Your calls are needed to your representatives to
stop this bill before it goes any farther.

Senate Bill 1046 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.

ACTION REQUESTED

1. Please contact your state representative 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
representative as well.
