CDC Report: Record-High Childhood Vaccine Refusals Across The Country
A new CDC report claims that the overall number of childhood vaccine exemptions for children entering school has reached record highs.
People Are Waking Up
As people are waking up to the dangers of the COVID injections, many are taking the next logical step and are now questioning the safety of, and need for, all childhood vaccines.
In a recent report issued by the CDC, the number of children entering kindergarten who are claiming exemption from the mandatory childhood vaccines has risen 0.4%, pushing the number to 3%. The data is reflective of the increase from the 2021-22 to 2022-23 school years. The report goes on to say that the exemption rate increased in 41 states overall.

The report also indicates that in 10 different states, the exemption rate rose to above 5%! Those states are Alaska, Arizona, Hawaii, Idaho, Michigan, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, and Wisconsin (thanks to statistical analysis from The Gateway Pundit).
Even CBS News acknowledges that this is undoubtedly tied to the work that “anti-vaccine activists” have been doing raising vaccine risk awareness:
While the new report did not determine whether the uptick in nonmedical exemptions reflects an increase in opposition to vaccination or if parents are skipping the shots due to barriers or inconvenience, it does come at a time when vaccine hesitancy remains high, a sentiment amplified by anti-vaccine activists during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The state with the highest number of exemptions is Idaho, with 12.1% of kindergarteners having obtained an exemption from childhood vaccines, followed by Oregon at 8.2% and Utah at 8.1%. These are staggering numbers, considering states like Oregon are some of the strictest when it comes to vaccine requirements.
The state that had the biggest swing towards vaccine exemptions was Hawaii, with a 3% overall increase in vaccine exemptions from the previous year.
All in all, this is a huge indication that the information about the dangers of the childhood vaccine schedule is reaching more and more people, and thanks to you sharing information like this far and wide, we are making a difference.
