CANADA - IMMUNIZATION EXEMPTIONS by State & countries (includes current statutes, letters & forms)
IMMUNIZATION EXEMPTIONS by State & countries (includes current statutes, letters & forms)
HEALTH CANADA STATEMENT ON IMMUNIZATION
"Unlike some countries, immunization is not mandatory in Canada; it cannot be made mandatory because of the Canadian Constitution. Only three provinces have legislation or regulations under their health-protection acts to require proof of immunization for school entrance. Ontario and New Brunswick require proof for diphtheria, tetanus, polio, measles, mumps, and rubella immunization. In Manitoba, only measles vaccination is covered. It must be emphasized that, in these three provinces, exceptions are permitted for medical or religious grounds and reasons of conscience; legislation and regulations must not be interpreted to imply compulsory immunization.

Vaccine exemption forms can be obtained from your local health department. Ask for form #2. This needs to be filled out, and notarized and given to your child's school. Parents are advised to retain a copy for their own files, as schools often lose the forms, and the process then has to be repeated. Form #2 can be accessed in PDF format at: (.pdf) http://www.vran.org/docs/form-2.pdf

Exemption Letters & Forms...
For those who are planning a hospital birth but want to evade invasive routine post natal procedures such as a Hep B shot, vitamin K injection, newborn screening, or the application of silver nitrate in the newborn's eyes, a very specific birthing plan must be submitted to the hospital in advance of the birth. Hospital staff must be informed, in advance, of your needs, wants and desires where your baby and birthing experience are concerned. The same applies to midwives.
Vitamin K Injection...
The prescribing information on Vitamin K shot states that fatalities are an adverse reaction according to the Merck pharmaceutical package insert.
"WARNING - INTRAVENOUS USE Severe reactions, including fatalities, have occurred during and immediately after the parenteral administration of AquaMEPHYTON® (Phytonadione)."
Alternatives to Vitamin K Prophylaxis...
Although oral vitamin K is not licensed for use as a drug, drops for oral administration are available. Typically, one drop contains 2 mg. of vitamin K. Contact a midwife in your area, or a birthing supply company (such as birthwithlove.com), or Scientific Botanicals (206 527-5521) where your health care provider can order liquid vitamin K directly.
Here's another much safer alternative that your chiropractor or naturopath can order for you.
Sample Vaccine Letters From this website
Most hospitals now require the Hepatitis B vaccine for newborns. Many parents are also cornered by emergency room personnel during accident visits. Hospitals nationally are under pressure to utilize every opportunity to score a "hit." If your pediatrician understands your views, get him involved with the hospital. As a last resort, protect your right to receive quality care in the following manner. (Usually, you'll never find anybody in the hospital to sign this simple form):
"I certify that the (Name of Vaccine)________ vaccine being administered to (Name of Child)_________ is free from all known and yet unknown zoonotic or human viruses or viral fragments and will not cause acute or chronic illness in the recipient due to viral contamination or as a reaction to the components of this vaccine. (Signature of Physician and Date)_________."
If you do get a signature, hold on to the form.

This ï¿½Refusal to Permit Medical Treatmentï¿½ form is optional to use.
"Refusal to Permit Medical Treatment" form
Refusal to Permit Medical Treatment. A generic form.
It would be good idea to use with an AFFIDAVIT (Ontario) (.pdf) or exemption statement from parents AND model birth plan letter. We hope people will use this affidavit, model birth plan letter and refusal forms, and is successful. We want to hear about it when someone is successful with this. The ACCEPTANCE OF RESPONSIBILITY is imperative in exercising your rights for legal exemptions from forced medical experimentation and legalized bioterrorism. DO be prepared to fight for your baby's rights!

Wildeman & Downie ï¿½ Genetic and Metabolic Screening of Newborns 1
Genetic and Metabolic Screening of Newborns: Must Health Care Providers Seek Explicit Parental Consent?
"On the issue of whether these screening programs were mandated by government authority, the authors stated:
Genetic screening programs in Canada are voluntary; there are no health laws or regulations which enforce screening for genetic disease. The viability in the provincial programs more often than not reflects the initiative of individuals or groupswho usually hold no position in government but who act as advisers to their programs. The diverse nature of the provincial programs undoubtedly reflects the interests of their advisers.37"

TB Testing Alternatives...
TB can be detected by biofeedback machines that are hooked up to a computer, such as the QXCI, Best BioMeridian MSAS (Meridian Stress Assessment) or Electro Dermal Screening, Quantum Life System, and the F-Scan. You will need to ask specifically for a pathogen scan, especially TB. You will also need to request a printout with the results.
