RUSH: Well, what are your options? I mean, if you don’t do it, who will know?
CALLER: Well, I was kicked out of a doctor’s office after my daughter had open heart surgery and she wanted to administer six vaccines in one day to catch her up after open heart surgery. The doctor kicked me out, sent me a certified letter, and I was genuinely afraid she was going to call CPS because I had heard she’d done it on another family, and thankfully she did not. My rights in Florida are I can claim a religious exemption, but what about families who aren’t religious and what about philosophical exemption?
RUSH: Well, I know. It’s happening everywhere. New York City now has mandatory flu vaccines every year for six months to six years old, and six-year-olds attending day care and preschool. It’s all rooted in this belief that you are not qualified, you’re not capable of protecting your children. Only the government knows best. These people that can’t do anything right. They can’t run the health care system. They can’t do anything. They know better how to protect your kid from disease than you do, and they want to exercise this control over you. I saw a report the other day that hospital systems are now required to have a 90% or higher flu-shot reception rate among their staff or they lose up to 2% of their funding of Medicare and Medicaid.
CALLER: Exactly. School districts lose their funding if their student body isn’t up to date. Yeah.
