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?
