Fight for Vaccine Choice in Albany

Come to Albany on January 8th

December 29, 2019 — ACTION ALERT from John Gilmore

January 8 is the first day of the New York legislative session and you need to be there if you want to stop mandatory flu shots, mandatory Gardasil, and allowing drug companies direct access to your kids without your knowledge or consent. It is highly unlikely there will be any votes on any bills that day, but we need to be there to be heard and seen, and we need to keep it up until we restore our rights. There are literally dozens of bills that threaten you and your family. We need to fight hard to stop them. And as we saw in New Jersey, we can win if we fight hard enough and in big enough numbers.

     Gov. Cuomo will make his State of the State address on January 8 and we need to be there in big, visible numbers. You need to go online to reserve a spot in the lottery for tickets. Tomorrow 12/30 is the last day to apply.

      From the Governor’s website:

     “Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that the 2020 State of the State Address will be held in the Empire State Plaza Convention Center in Albany on January 8 at 1:30 PM. New Yorkers wishing to attend should visit the Governor’s homepage at to register between December 20th at 12:00 PM and December 30th at 5:00 PM. Seating is limited and tickets are non-transferable. In the event that the number of requests exceeds available seating, attendees will be selected by lottery. Guests will be notified of their selection via email.”

     You also need to make appointments to see your Assemblymember and State Senator in Albany on January 8. If they are not available meet with a staffer. Be polite when you call, and if you don’t know who they are look them up here.

   The drug industry is insatiable. There are bills coming to force HPV Merck’s Gardasil and annual flu shots on our children, they want to take parents completely out of the picture with bills allowing giving vaccines to children without parental knowledge or consent. And there are literally dozens of more bills to help the drug industry sell products and control your lives.  Eighty percent of success is just showing up, for your children’s sake show up.
