Ohio: H1N1 Vaccinations for Homeschoolers

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

We understand that the decision to vaccinate is personal and will
differ from family to family. We believe that this decision is for
parents to make.

For those who choose to vaccinate in Ohio, we have learned that local
school districts are offering H1N1 vaccination for public school
children, and that homeschooled children may not be included in
vaccinations at public schools. However, we have learned that local
health departments are having separate clinics for target groups,
meaning a group that has been identified as being especially
vulnerable, such as school-age children. Homeschool students should be
able to receive vaccination at these clinics.

If you want your child to be vaccinated and a public health department
has turned you away, please contact us so that we may assist you.

In some cases there simply may not be enough vaccine for all those who
want it. However, homeschool children are members of the target group,
"school-aged children," and should receive priority in receipt of the
vaccine over individuals who are not in a target group.

Thank you for your support of homeschooling freedom in Ohio.

Very truly yours,

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

We don't know that this has ever been determined; but we do know
that HSLDA's Federal Relations Department is the only
national organization lobbying on behalf of homeschoolers on
Capitol Hill.
