A couple of anit-vaccine bills are making it through the GOP-controlled NH House.

One would remove all vaccine requirements (including polio!) for children entering daycare or private kindergarten (HB 1213), leaving it in place only for public school. It also and would remove requirement to report vaccination rates, which effectively means vaccinations often wouldn’t happen.

Another (HB1194) that tries to sidestep some vaccine requirements by changing the definition of “noncommunicable disease”, removing “infectious” as part of the definition, leaving only “transmissible from person-to-person.” This raises questions about things like tetanus which I can’t give to you directly; this was such an obvious problem with the bill that an exception was added in the Senate, excepting tetanus.

Obviously, either of these would be really stupid.
