  • If the rationale for this mandate is to help ease hospital capacity to manage COVID-19, why is this mandate permanent and not tied to the state of emergency?

  • Why is this mandate only directed at school-aged children, when they account for less than 10% of flu-related hospitalizations? 

  • What is the legal basis for mandating a medical intervention in healthy children that is not proven substantially safe or efficacious? 

  • Education is a fundamental right in New Jersey. What educational alternatives will the state provide for non-religious families who still wish to decline the flu shot for their children, but do not have the means to homeschool?

  • In NJ, medical exemptions are rare (0.2% of kindergartners in 2019) and only granted per vaccine based on CDC contraindications. “Life-threatening” anaphylaxis to a previous dose is the only contraindication for the flu vaccine.

 

  • What will be the remedy for children who are at increased risk for an adverse reaction or who have already suffered a severe adverse reaction to a previous dose (ie. Seizure, high fever, urticaria, angioedema, GBS, syncope)? 

  • How will the state provide FAPE to qualified children who refuse the flu vaccine?

  • Please provide studies that support the safety of an annual flu vaccine in healthy children, specifically looking at the cumulative effect over 18+ years?

  • When over 71% of New Jersians voluntarily receive a flu vaccine (one of highest rates in the country), why is a mandate necessary?

  • What will happen if we do not comply?
