A network of clinics in Texas has issued new guidelines asserting their facilities will no longer take children as patients if they have not been vaccinated.
Austin Regional Clinic, the largest healthcare provider network in the Central Texas region serving close to half a million residents, announced today they will begin prohibiting children who are not up to date on vaccine requirements from being seen by doctors starting tomorrow.
“The physicians and staff at Austin Regional Clinic support immunizations,” a statement on the ARC site says. “If you plan not to immunize your child, we prefer that you choose another practice. We do not want to place the rest of our patients at risk of contracting vaccine-preventable illnesses.”
“Parents who are unwilling to commit to a vaccination schedule will need to find another physician outside of ARC,” a press release states.
The ARC’s recommended vaccine schedule lists at least 21 innoculations infants should receive before the first year of age, many of which can admittedly cause severe adverse reactions – including death – largely in part to the ease by which toxicants can permeate children’s underdeveloped blood-brain barriers.
Notably, the list also recommends children receive a dose of Merck’s controversial Gardasil vaccine by age nine, despite reports that hundreds of young women in the US have died, and tens of thousands have been harmed by it. “Routine dosing intervals are recommended,” a handout from the clinic states.
Specifically, the clinic says parents may be confused about vaccines due to “misinformation in the media and on biased websites.”
Perhaps they find it biased to point out the fact that the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has, via a secretive, letigious network of courts, paid out nearly $3 billion to families who’ve suffered death or other debilitating side effects as a result of vaccines.
Russ Krienke, ARC’s chief medical officer, said the decision was based on ensuring the “facilities are safe” for all of its visiting patients.
“[W]hile we respect the right of families to make their own choices for their children, we also respect the trust our patients put in us to ensure the safety of all, and our policies must honor that trust,” Krienke said.
The clinic’s announcement follows passage of California’s SB 277 mandatory vaccination bill, which forces all public school attendees be up to date on their vaccine requirements as mandated by the state’s department of public health.
