Vaccination cover-up that you need to see playing in Arroyo Grande

When the California Legislature passed a law (SB 277) last year that took away my right to claim a religious exemption to vaccination mandates for my school-age children, I began my own research into the matter, questioning the need for such a heavy hand.

One of the salient pieces of information I came across detailed the confession of a senior scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. William Thompson, who received federal whistleblower status because of his allegations, admitted that he and others in the agency concealed and destroyed data that showed a significant risk of harm associated with the MMR vaccine.

An explosive new documentary called “Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe” investigates this very matter. This movie, detailing the corruption within the CDC, is screening at Arroyo Grande’s Fair Oaks Theater for one week; it started Friday, June 24.

I hope all current and prospective California politicians (and all parents of school-age children) make it their business to view this film and inform themselves about the burden of risk this new law places on the lives of California children and their families.
