NY Take Action: Dinowitz brings back his bill to mandate COVID shots for school children
It’s back. Assemblymember Jeffrey Dinowitz, Albany’s leading drug company shill, has reintroduced his bill to require COVID shots for all kindergarten through twelfth grade students in New York. The new number for the bill is A2178. 

Gov. Kathy Hochul keeps on saying she wants a school mandate. New York City Mayor Eric Adams said over the weekend, “there may be another time that we are going to have to do mandates again.” This could be the vehicle to do that.

The minimum standard for any medical intervention is that we have solid, credible data to show that the intervention provides better health outcomes than not giving it. Dinowitz, Hochul, Adams and the vaccine industry cannot meet that minimal standard for mass injection of children with the COVID shot. Dinowitz has shown time and time again that he can’t be bothered to do even minimal research on his bills. 



Please use the panel at the right to send a message to your Assemblymember stating your opposition to A2178 and mandatory COVID shots for school children. 

Please get on the phone. Call your Assemblymember and ask if he or she supports mandatory COVID shots to attend school. They may try and dodge the question by saying that they are not on the health committee, or this bill is not scheduled for a vote, or some other excuse to avoid answering. Do not let them divert you. 

Right now there is no companion bill in the Senate for A2178, and the bill has only one co-sponsor in the Assembly, Phil Steck, (Clifton Park-D), (518) 455-5931. That could change in a day. 

Please get on the phone and keep working the phones. Be polite and professional.  Call your Assemblymember and the leadership in the Albany (numbers below.)

Here are some of the major issues with COVID shots and children:

57% of children have not had the COVID shot. Despite massive propaganda campaigns for three years and free shots available nearly everywhere, a poll by the American Academy of Pediatrics shows that 57% of children have not had the COVID shot.  Why? Parents do not trust the shot and they do not think COVID is a serious threat.  Good luck to any politician who wants to force those parents against their will to give the shot to their kids. 



COVID shots do not prevent infection with COVID.  A fact the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) admitted in August of 2021. Everybody knows many people who got the shots and boosters and still ended up with COVID. 



96% of US children have had COVID. According to the CDC, 96.3% of US children have already had and recovered from COVID most without experiencing any symptoms. https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#pediatric-seroprevalence


Recovery from COVID offers greater protection than shots. Multiple studies, including a recent study by Anthony Fauci, acknowledges recovery from an infection is more protective than shots. https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanmic/article/PIIS2666-5247(22)00287-7/fulltext



COVID shots  have very limited efficacy in children. A 2022 study co-authored by former New York State Health Commissioner Mary Bassett concluded:  “There is limited evidence on the effectiveness of the BNT162b2 (Pfizer) vaccine for children, particularly those 5-11 years and after the Omicron variant’s emergence. Bassett found vaccine effectiveness against cases for 5–11-year-olds declined from 68% to 12%, an 82% reduction in effectiveness, in less than 35 days.



Even Fauci says COVID shots do not “effectively control” the virus. In reference to viruses for colds, influenza and SARS Covid-2 Fauci said, “Because these viruses generally do not elicit complete and durable protective immunity by themselves, they have not to date been effectively controlled by licensed or experimental vaccines”. 



COVID survival rate for children is 99.995% or 1 death out of 200,000 cases.



COVID shots have an extremely high injury rate. According to the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) there have been 34,270 deaths, 191,486 hospitalizations, 10387 cases of anaphylaxis, 16,707 cases of Bell’s Palsy, 4,920 miscarriages, 18,504 heart attacks, 26,388 cases of myocarditis/pericarditis and 63, 097 permanent disabilities associated with the COVID shot as 2/14/23. More deaths have been reported for the COVID shot than for all other vaccines combined since VAERS was founded in  1988.  Federal studies have shown that VAERS is believed to capture at most 13% of all actual injuries. 




No matter what else you might say about Dinowitz there is no denying that he is the hardest working person in Albany for the giant companies that control the global vaccine market and public health apparatus. 

Dinowitz was the author of the 2019 bill that repealed the religious exemption from vaccine mandates to attend school. 

In addition to A2178, Dinowitz has so far introduced: 

  • A837, Requires the state to publish the vaccination rate at all NY schools, even though the State has been doing exactly this for years. You can see it here: https://health.data.ny.gov/Health/School-Immunization-Survey-Beginning-2012-13-Schoo/5pme-xbs5/data
  • A1811, which mandates annual flu shots for daycare, pre-school, and K-12,
  • A2125, (Dinowitz-D), which eliminates religious exemptions from vaccine mandates for work and college, 
  • A2130, Creates a permanent vaccination propaganda campaign and a tax return check-off to  fund it,
  • A2143, Requires COIVD shots to attend college,
  • A2183, Specifies altering digital information in the New York State Immunization Information System is illegal (even though that is already illegal,)
  • A2186, Prohibits children who have not had the full vaccine schedule required to attend public school from attending overnight, day, or travelling camp, 
  • A2905, Requires the New York State Department of Health to track all medical exemptions written by New York physicians,
  • A4324, Allows New York State Department of Health to require employees of overnight, day, or travelling camp to get shots.


Obviously,  Dinowitz does not think that anyone should have any say about what goes into our own bodies or our children’s bodies.
