The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted on October 20, 2022, to add the experimental COVID-19 injection, which is being distributed under an EUA, to the list of recommended routine childhood immunizations. This approval allows pharmaceutical companies to be shielded from liability if a child experiences an adverse event, is maimed, or dies after a COVID injection.
New Jersey decides via the legislative process which immunizations are added to the mandated list for school entry. New Jersey does not require all of the CDC/ACIP recommended vaccines. However, parents must remain vigilant because legislation to add the COVID-19 vaccine to the mandated list for school entry can be introduced at any time in the New Jersey legislative body.
In January 2021, Senator Vitale (District 19), the Chair of the Senate Health Committee, declared on News 12 NJ his intention to push for the vaccine to be mandated for New Jersey school entry, “once it (the vaccine) has been proven through trials.” You can watch the video here.
Senator Vitale and Assemblyman Herb Conaway (District 7), the Assembly Health Committee Chair, are already seeking to mandate the COVID shot for all New Jersey college students. Tell your legislators to oppose bills A4334 and S316 here.
This duo has also sponsored a bill to mandate the flu shot (A2007 / S1101) for all New Jersey students from kindergarten to 12th grade.
Assemblyman Conaway is also the primary sponsor of bill A1991, which “clarifies statutory exemptions from mandatory immunization requirements for child care centers and school attendance.” This bill seeks to remove the religious exemption to refuse vaccinations for all students in the state. If passed, the state of New Jersey would no longer acknowledge the rights and legitimacy of citizens to decline an invasive and serious medical intervention for deeply held religious beliefs, a right that is protected by the First Amendment, as well as Article 1, Section 6 of the New Jersey Constitution.
Young adults have proven to handle COVID infection very well. One study, released earlier this month, estimated that only three of every million kids who have been infected with COVID have died from it. For this population, there are higher risks of vaccine reactions, such as myocarditis. The risks of mandatory COVID-19 vaccination far outweigh the benefits in this age group.
The high rate of breakthrough infections in vaccinated populations demonstrates that vaccinated individuals are still spreading the COVID-19 virus.
A 2022 study shows that natural immunity provides the same protection and for a longer window than mRNA vaccination.
As of October 22, 2022, Pfizer announced it will increase pricing for their COVID-19 mRNA injection. Pfizer used to charge its only customer in the U.S. – the federal government – $19.50 per dose.

It charges $130 per dose How much is a dose of covid vaccine? although each dose costs only $1.18 to produce. If a mandate were passed in New Jersey, Pfizer would have another liability-free product producing significant income for this private company.
