Disabled Vaccine Injured 9 Year Old Boy Back In School

New York Democrats Kicked Him Out, But Now He’s Back!

***Update 11-13-2019 — 24 hours after this historic courtroom decision, not a single news organization has picked up the story. The *only* coverage of this came from P&T® Community, who provides information to pharmacy and therapeutics committee members; however even that was quickly pulled off of the internet.

November 12, 2019 — God bless Del Bigtree and the ICAN Network! Thanks to their legal efforts a temporary restraining order has been granted sending a 9-year-old vaccine injured boy named Ameer back to school. This is important for at least 3 major reasons

  1. Ameer is a human being who deserves to be treated with dignity and respect; and he deserves an education.
  2. This proves that in New York the law is clear – only doctors can write medical exemptions to vaccination, the Department of Health cannot override the doctor’s expert opinion.
  3. This opens the doors for other medically fragile children who were kicked out of public school to have a pathway back in.

How truly disgusting is it that Governor Cuomo and the New York Democrats have become the party that kicks disabled and injured children out of school?!? I never in my lifetime thought I would see the day the Democrats – my own party – would sink so despicably low. All of the Democrats who did this to Ameer must pay by being kicked the hell out of Albany in the 2020 elections.

Thank god there is a judge in New York who brought a little bit of justice to this disabled, injured 9-year-old boy and his family. This is a much needed victory for Health Freedom and Vaccine Choice Advocates in New York. Below is the complete press release from ICAN and Del Bigtree: (below that is a youtube video of Del Bigtree and Ameer’s father)


New York Judge Re-Admits Expelled Disabled Student Missing Single Vaccination, According To Informed Consent Action Network

BUFFALO, N.Y., Nov. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — A New York State court granted a temporary restraining order today, re-admitting disabled student Ameer Hamideh to school at the CHC Learning Center here, according to Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) which supported Ameer’s case.

Nine-year old Ameer became an unwilling national story when he was expelled from school at CHC in October because he lacked a single mandatory vaccine for school attendance.

Ameer has numerous neurological impairments, including cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and a seizure disorder. He has received all vaccinations required to attend school, with the exception of a fifth dose of a pertussis (whooping cough) Tdap vaccine.

Ameer was expelled even after his life-long treating pediatric neurologist submitted a medical exemption to the school. He was expelled because the New York State Department of Health opined that the medical exemption should be denied.

Because of Ameer’s previous severe reaction to the DTaP vaccine—most recently a grand mal seizure that sent him, uncontrollably screaming, to the hospital—his parents Ali and Orooba Hamideh followed the advice of Ameer’s physician to not give him an additional dose.

ICAN took up the family’s cause and turned its team of attorneys to the case, which pointed out—among other things—New York state law allows any doctor to provide a valid medical exemption, and does not provide the Department of Health the authority to overrule that exemption.

“This is so satisfying because of what it means for the Hamideh family,” says Del Bigtree, founder and CEO of non-profit ICAN. “The State thought they could steamroll the Hamideh family. Their bureaucratic decision regarding Ameer’s medical treatment, made without ever even talking to his doctor, could have seriously injured him.” 

Ali and Orooba Hamideh appeared on the October 24th episode of ICAN’s weekly online fact-based medical and health news show “The HighWire with Del Bigtree,” which streams Thursdays at 11am PST on https://thehighwire.com/, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter (@HighWireTalk).

Tim Kennedy Kicks Disabled Children Out of Public School

Claims “I didn’t know” I Kicked Out Disabled Students!

July 14, 2019 — Tim Kennedy– a Democratic Senator from Western New York – voted YES to repealing the religious exemption to vaccination. This resulted in children being kicked out of all public and private schools in New York immediately; including severely disabled children that have extensive educational programs.

Constituents have been trying to meet with Senator Kennedy since January, however he never once granted them a meeting! When constituents recently confronted him at a Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra Concert, Senator Kennedy claimed he wasn’t aware that the bill he voted to become a law resulted in thousands of disabled children being kicked out of all New York Schools.


Rita Palma and Dr. Larry Palevsky met with Senator Kennedy’s Chief of Staff (COS) just days before the repeal bill was voted on. According to Rita Palma, Kennedy’s COS was completely inattentive as they spoke about the repeal bill and spent the majority of the time on his phone instead of listening to Palma and Palevsky.

Here is the account of what happened as written by one of Senator Kennedy’s constituents who was part of a group who confronted him:

We went to a Sen. Tim Kennedy sponsored event (also endorsed by Crystal Peoples-Stokes). There were 4 of us with 400 flyers to pass out- the venue was in an old train station in the city of Buffalo- all day music / vendor event ending with Sen. Kennedy introducing the Buffalo Philharmonic (BPO) at the end. We began talking to people outside the venue, handing out flyers. Then we went inside where we handed more out, we posted them on the bathrooms, entrances. Then we took the rest of the flyers and canvased the cars. It was 7:10pm- our inner shy selves wanted to go home, but we knew we had to go back inside to see Kennedy before he introduced the BPO.

We went right up front- we were in 15 feet of him, we waited, my heart raced. We knew we had to talk to him. We took the leap – I approached him and kindly said “Sen. Kennedy, so nice to meet you- I’m…..” he immediately engaged in friendly conversation and then I brought up that he voted in favor of S2294 (the bill that repealed the religious exemption to vaccination) – he was the ONLY WNY (Western New York) senator to vote in favor and even Crystal Peoples-Stokes voted against it.

We totally caught him off guard, he said this wasn’t the forum to discuss this and we could get a meeting. I said- we’ve been trying to get a meeting w/ you since January, we were in Albany twice. What are you going to do about the children with IEPs/ disabilities? He said- well it signed, it’s the law now. He was not aware of issues with IEPs / disabilities. (emphasis added)

Went back and forth. His community director took my card and said she would call to schedule a meeting, etc. We stood there standing and watching- he was uncomfortable- he was waiting to introduce the BPO. After his introduction- we were still there- looking- he came back up to us and said, please schedule a meeting- I’m very sympathetic and if this affects you directly- I can see what I can do. Lesson learned: don’t be fearful- got do it. We just wish we had BIG ASS signs UP FRONT. Here is a pre-jitter photo of (name withheld).

Everybody needs to confront their Albany Reps just like this – be bold, BE BRAVE! We need to hold these people accountable for what they have so thoughtlessly done.

***Update — After this terrible law was passed a disabled boy named Ameer Hamideh – whose family lives in Kennedy’s district – was kicked out of school because of Kennedy’s vote. When Ameer’s father went to speak to Kennedy about this at a public event Kennedy ran out the back door. Complete coward! Thankfully Ameer is back in school today after a major legal victory in New York court. Learn more about Ameer here.
