NY Take Action: Stop mandatory inclusion in the adult vaccine database

URGENT NY Take Action:  Adults should control their vaccine records.

No vaccines for kids without parental consent. 


The New York Assembly Health Committee passed several very bad bills last Tuesday.  Including A7154 (McDonald-D)/S1531 (Hoylman-D) This bill essentially makes inclusion of vaccine records mandatory in the statewide adult vaccine database. Right now, medical workers are supposed to get permission of the patient to put records in the database. A7154/S1531 would require people to actively ask to be excluded from the database. This is another incremental step toward a mandatory vaccine database for adults and provides the essential information for future enforcement actions and vaccine passports. 

The Assembly Health Committee also passed A276b (Paulin-D), /S762a (Krueger-D) which allows drugs and vaccines that are marketed to prevent sexually transmitted diseases to be given to children without parental knowledge or consent. In the bigger picture, this bill eliminates the existing right of parents to know and have choice over the vaccines our children get. 

These bills still must get through the Senate Health Committee, the rules committees of both houses, possibly other committees, and eventually a signature by the Governor. This fight is far from over, and they must get it all done by June 8 when the legislature adjourns for the year. 




Use the panel to the right to send an opposition message to your Assemblymember on A7154 that creates an essentially mandatory adult vaccine database.

Talking Points


Oppose S762a/A276b


The bill does not have any age limits, which means that the only age limit will be the youngest age permitted to use a product set by the Food and Drug Administration. Hepatitis B vaccines are given at birth so there is no age limit, HPV vaccine can be given at 9, and Truvada can be given to people who are at least 77 lbs., the weight of an average fifth grader. 


S762a/A276b Would violate federal law. The infamous law passed in 1986, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, which removed legal liability from vaccine manufacturers and people who administer vaccines, also requires that a healthcare professional provide a copy of the current vaccine information sheet to an adult patient or to a child’s parent/legal representative before vaccinating a child. 42 U.S.C. §300aa-26. 


Last year, a federal court voided a Washington DC that allowed children 11 years and older to get vaccines without parental consent. See the judge’s order HERE.


S762a/276b protects pedophiles by gutting mandated reporter laws. Paulin’s bill protects pedophiles by subverting New York’s  “Mandated Reporter” law that requires licensed professionals to report suspected sexual abuse of children to law enforcement. What rational person would not suspect something was very wrong if a nine-year old requested an injection that purports to prevent a sexually transmitted disease and the child did not want his or her parents to know about it? What should a mandated reporter do if an 11-year-old requests a drug to prevent HIV? Under New York law sex with children of that age is always a felony.


S762a A/276b takes away the current legal right to refuse vaccines for a child. This law goes much further than the repeal of the religious exemption from vaccine mandates to attend school. At least parents have the option to refuse a vaccine and homeschool a child. This law removes parents completely from their child’s healthcare. 


HPV shots have a terrible safety record According to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System as of 4/28/2023 in New York there have been 3,273 reported adverse incidents with HPV vaccines, including 9 deaths, 814 emergency room visits, 119 hospitalizations, and 88 permanent disabilities. Almost all of these injuries are among girls under 20. And according to Dr. David Kessler, who was the head of the FDA under Presidents George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, these injuries are probably less than 10% of the actual number. 

The safety record of HPV vaccines is so troubling that Japan ended their recommendation of HPV vaccination for Japanese girls in 2014.

Truvada (PrEP) has significant safety issues and costs more than $20,000 per year, Kidney failure, bone loss, death, and dozens of other side effects caused by TDF, the active ingredient in Truvada. 

Children do not know enough about their own medical history to consent. It is absurd to assume that a child of any age knows enough about their own medical history, and the medical history of their family, to provide informed consent. They must know if they had earlier adverse reactions to vaccines given to them as infants, whether they have allergies or sensitivities to vaccine ingredients, or if there is a family medical history that would contra-indicate a shot. A nine-year old child will know this?

Merck is charged with submitting fraudulent documents in the licensing process. A lawsuit is underway in California, Robi v. Merck, which alleges Merck, the manufacturer of Gardasil, submitted fraudulent safety and efficacy data to the federal government during the licensing process.

Who decides who can decide? A person giving the shot, who may have a financial incentive to do so, is allowed to use whatever reasons they want to determine if a minor is capable of giving consent. 

There is no protection for minors with developmental disabilities Nor is there any specific language to prevent shots from being given to minors with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

How can a parent make informed healthcare choices for their child? In the event of an adverse reaction, especially if a child is unconscious, how is a parent, first responder, or other healthcare professionals supposed to provide appropriate medical care to the child?

The official description of the bill is inaccurate and dishonest. It claims the bill, “Provides treatment for sexually transmitted diseases to minors without a parent’s or guardian’s consent.” That is a lie. New York law has allowed minors to seek treatment for STDs since the 1970s. New York law does not allow minors to consent to treatment purported to be “preventive.”

A current illegal regulation allows giving drugs and vaccines to minors without parental consent The goal of this bill is to make legal an illegal regulation pushed through in 2017 by former governor Andrew Cuomo that allowed giving drugs and vaccines to minors without parental consent.  Paulin acknowledges in the Memo for the bill that the bill is needed to make the State’s current practice legal! Cuomo had no legal authority to push through what amounts to an entirely new law.

OPPOSE A7154/S1531, Keep the New York State Vaccine Database Voluntary


What is the need? There are no required vaccines for general population adults.

A7154/S1531 violates every principle of medical privacy.

A7154/S1531 violates physician’s duty of confidentiality.

The database will be used to identify and punish people. It is COVID now, it will be other shots in the future. We currently have a mandatory children’s vaccine database. Its only purpose is to track children for compliance, enforcement, and punishment. 

This is the first step to statewide vaccine passports. The existing database was used exactly for that purpose during COVID with the Excelsior vaccine passport.

The bill opens the door to demanding all medical records, psychiatric drugs, HIV and other STDs, contraceptive use, etc.

This is taxpayer subsidized marketing for drug companies.

Immigrant rights advocates are concerned it will be used to track and locate undocumented people for deportation.

This bill will disproportionately impact black and brown people who have the lowest rate of COVID vaccine uptake of any racial groups.
