getting a vaccination vaccine injectionA conservative group suggests New Jersey lawmakers have gone against the will of the people in mandating vaccines for children.

Though a huge turnout of opponents convinced New Jersey senators this week to drop consideration of a bill that would force children to have vaccines, a new bill, A969, has been filed with the same basic requirements. Religious protections are still being reviewed.

Greg Quinlan of The Center for Garden State Families tells OneNewsNow there is a vaccine requirement in a separate bill for "a mandatory meningitis vaccination for all of those college age and up."

"It even states that if you are an outside learner, meaning you're doing this external degree, you're working from home, you must have the meningitis vaccine," he explains.

Another measure calls for the Human Papillomavirus vaccine for children in grades six through 12.

"There's another bill that will give minors ages 14 and over consent to vaccines," Quinlan adds. "So a child, a minor at 14 years of age and up, will be able to consent to have a vaccine over the parents' desires."

Quinlan says he has never seen so many people turning out as they did to oppose New Jersey's original bill, and he hopes that opposition will influence whether or not the new bills are passed. If they do pass, he says it would be a payback from liberal members to Big Pharma.
