Kate Frey and Paula Mackinnon: Childhood immunizations save lives
February 15, 2022
NOW, midway through the 2022 legislative session, New Hampshire lawmakers are continuing to review more than 40 bills that, if passed into law, would undermine our public health infrastructure like never before. These bills, which would prohibit our businesses, schools and other organizations from setting their own vaccine policies, among other harmful efforts, would deeply impair our ability not only to overcome COVID-19, but also to prevent and address public health crises into the future.
Among this harmful legislation is House Bill 1035. This bill, which is under review in the House Health and Human Services Committee, and likely soon to move on to a vote on the House floor, would make it easier for families to send their children to school unvaccinated and unprotected against preventable diseases.
