Flu Mandate Bills
ACTION NEEDED: NJ Assembly Bill 4576 proposes annual forced flu vaccination for all NJ students to reduce the number of children who experience severe flu and COVID symptoms and help reduce competition for medical resources such as ER and ICU visits.
Please find your legislator and send them to email the following
telling them that forced flu vaccination will not accomplish the bill's stated goals. There is significant evidence showing that mandating annual flu shots will make matters worse because of flu vaccination:
increases the risk of catching pre-COVID-19 coronaviruses,
increases the chance children will get other respiratory illnesses,
increases hospitalization of children,
can cause enhanced H1N1 illness
damages cross-reactivity of t-cells (crucial to fighting COVID-19).
