The Kansas Senate Public Health and Welfare Committee passed two bills this week that potentially weaken the existing safety net of vaccine requirements, putting us at risk for preventable disease. This marks the third straight session in which the Senate has considered anti-vaccination legislation. As we approach the last days for consideration of these measures, it is important that you contact your Senator and let him/her know that you oppose this legislation and express your concern for the impact on the health of Kansans.
If you reside in Johnson County, it is imperative that you contact your Kansas State Senator via email or phone and record your opposition. Both bills promote policies soundly rejected by Kansans in Nurture KC’s 2022 scientific public opinion poll: Kansas Vaccine Poll.
