Hawaii H1N1 Resolution Advances Vaccination Exemptions In Favor of American Freedoms

Media Release:

Despite the declared H1N1 “national emergency,” Department of Health officials were unable to persuade the Hawaii County Council to stop a resolution advancing vaccination exemptions. The Resolution was put forth by County Council vice chair, Emily I. Naeole-Beason, who received concerns about vaccine-injuries from several constituents. Proponents declared the Council’s vote a victory for freedom, and a warning to those who seek mandatory medical authorizations under Federal “national emergency” statutes.  The vote was 7-1 in favor with County chair J Yoshimoto casting the only no vote and Council member Enriques was absent.
