Letter: Say no to vaccine tax assessment bill


Derry News

---- — To the editor:

A little-known vaccine tax assessment bill, HB 664, is working its way through the state Legislature that will impose a new, limitless tax assessment on every self-insured business and municipality in New Hampshire. It would also impose an expanded de facto vaccine mandate on all children for all vaccines ever recommended for use, including new, unproven vaccines. The bill is now in the Senate and is expected to be voted on by the full Senate on May 23. Please ask your state senator to please vote no on HB 664.

Whether you are a business or taxpayer concerned about the ever-increasing cost of health insurance or a parent concerned about the ever-increasing vaccine mandates, this is a bill you do not want passed. Please know that no harm will come if this bill is not passed. No one will be denied vaccines and there will be no shortage.

Voting down HB664 will force the Vaccine Association and DHHS to explain to the public why they are engaged in the most expensive vaccine purchase program in the country, a universal purchase program that has been rejected by 44 other states.
