Karen Contreras, Lou Ann Flaherty and Elaine Freeman

AB 3121

This bill has been amended for the better.  This bill, the Cancer Prevention Act, would declare the public policy of the state that pupils are “recommended” rather than “expected” to be fully immunized against human papillomavirus (HPV) before admission or advancement to the 8th grade level of any private or public elementary or secondary school.  

The bill would, upon a pupil’s admission or advancement to be the 8th grade level, require the governing authority to submit to the pupil and their parent or guardian a notification containing a statement about that public policy and advising that the pupil be fully immunized against HPV before admission or advancement to the 8th grade level.  As amended,  this bill would incorporate that notification into existing provisions relating to notifications by school districts.

This bill is currently pending in the Senate Education Committee scheduled for hearing on July 7.

  1. I too am now afraid of vaccines. Being in a high risk category of COVID 19 death due to my multiple underlying health problems and age, I received my 3rd COVID vaccine (the booster by Pfizer Pharmaceuticals) about 2 years ago. I still have a lot of pain in that 3rd booster shot arm, and still have trouble lifting anything with that arm, or extending that arm above my head to this very day. Personally, I am done with any and all vaccines. Also, I never plan to leave the United States again.

    Here is what I did research on the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). I am no doctor or expert on sexually transmitted diseases (STD or STI), but the way I understand it, the HPV vaccine is highly recommended to be administered before one becomes sexually active because it takes a while for the supposed immunity to kick in. These days the beginnings of sexual activity can be as young as 12 years old, or even younger. However, I do personally know of cases where females got cervical cancer from HPV genital warts. Those warts are easily spread to the males with whom they have sexual contact, then it is spread to others the same way as the virus snowballs.

    “What is HPV? HPV is the most common STI. There were about 43 million HPV infections in 2018, many among people in their late teens and early 20s. There are many different types of HPV. Some types can cause health problems, including genital warts and cancers.

    A 2-dose schedule is recommended for people who get the first dose before their 15th birthday. In a 2-dose series, the second dose should be given 6–12 months after the first dose (0, 6–12-month schedule).
    The minimum interval is 5 months between the first and second dose. If the second dose is administered after a shorter interval, a third dose should be administered a minimum of 5 months after the first dose and a minimum of 12 weeks after the second dose.
    If the vaccination schedule is interrupted, vaccine doses do not need to be repeated (no maximum interval).
    Immunogenicity studies have shown that two doses of HPV vaccine given to 9–14-year-olds at least 6 months apart provided as good or better protection than three doses given to older adolescents or young adults.” ~ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

    1. Yeah no. No HPV. We didn’t have that in the 60s and 70s or 80s. You can get HPV from sea turtles. There is a vaccine for anything and everything. The government gets rich off these vaccines that are nothing more than human experiments.
