Be leery of vaccine lobby

To the Editor:

I am a citizen of Washington state. I have been informed that legislation has been introduced in your state to eliminate the Philosophical Vaccine Exemption. This was done in Washington last year.

This is not the result of any problems with your current system. You have a very low disease incidence rate. You have 98 percent coverage of the Vermont requirements with the exemption in place.

There is a national vaccine lobby that is on a push to end any types of exemptions nationwide and will misrepresent the facts to do so.
