Jessica Biel not against vaccinations, just against bill

Jessica Biel not against vaccinations, just against bill

While Biel included the hashtag for SB-277 - a 2015 bill which removed personal belief exemptions for vaccinations - it was SB-276 that she actually went to the Capitol to address this week.

She continued, "That's why I spoke to legislators and argued against this bill".

The bill would require "the State Public Health Officer or the public health's officer's designee to approve or deny a medical exemption request, upon determining that the request provides sufficient medical evidence that the immunization is contraindicated or that a specific precaution regarding a particular immunization exists, based on guidelines of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)".

"My dearest friends have a child with a medical condition that warrants an exemption from vaccinations, and should this bill pass, it would greatly affect their family's ability to care for their child in this state", wrote Biel, alongside a photo showing her outside the state house. Does Jessica Biel believe in not vaccinating her child, and what is her 2019 net worth?

Biel has since responded to the reports directly, noting that she is "not against vaccinations" but also supports "families having the right to make educated medical decisions for their children alongside their physicians".

He continued to hammer the point that until recently there was no arrangement with Mexico. The president refused to share details of what was on that piece of paper.


Biel took to Instagram to explain why she stood alongside Kennedy Jr.in speaking out against the bill, noting that she is not an anti-vaxxer.

Several other California politicians shared pictures of their discussions with Biel and Kennedy.

Jessica Biel first appeared on television screens as the preacher's daughter, Mary Camden, on 7th Heaven She is now one of Hollywood's most elite actresses and married to Justin Timberlake with a four-year-old son. Kennedy confirmed as much in a phone call with the outlet, though he wouldn't go so far as to outright say that Biel was a part of his movement. "My concern with #SB277 is exclusively regarding medical exemptions".

"She was very strong and very knowledgeable", he said.

"Thank you for being fearless and standing up on such an important issue that affects so many families across our nation", read a comment, while one mom implored Biel to "consider all sides please". That same year, an anonymous "friend" told In Touch that Biel and Timberlake had not vaccinated their infant son, Silas. "She feels that vaccination could cause complications", a Touch Weekly source claimed at the time.
