NEW JERSEY, Oct. 15 /Christian Newswire/ -- NJ Assemblywoman Charlotte Vandervalk, Board-certified Pediatrician Dr. Lawrence Palevsky, National Vaccine Information Center co-founder Barbara Loe Fisher, and World Renowned Health Advocate, Gary Null, will join NJ parents and professionals at a rally in Trenton for vaccination choice. Nearly one thousand people are expected, requiring Trenton to close the streets to accommodate the crowds. The speakers represent a cross-section of society including medical doctors, nurses, chiropractors, scientists, clergy, educators, soldiers, politicians, journalists, autism activists, homeschoolers and many parents.
The NJ Coalition for Vaccination Choice (NJCVC) invites the public to rally with them by the steps of the State House, outside Gov. Corzine's office. The group opposes the four new vaccine mandates including an annual flu shot for children ages 5 and under, required for daycare and pre-school.
NJCVC supports the passage of bill A260/S1071, a conscientious exemption to mandatory immunization which will permit parents to select all, some or no vaccinations for their children. A form of this parental right already exists in 19 other US states. All legislators will be in Trenton for a Special Session. Fox News plans to cover the event. Fox aired a live segment on vaccination choice in NJ on October 9 (see http://tinyurl.com/3nmgqb and http://tinyurl.com/45ca5y). Press urged to cover this high visual impact event: signs, banners, balloons, photos, children, music, personal stories, legislator appreciation ceremony.
