On March 3rd, you can protect all Maine’s children from deadly diseases by voting NO on Question 1.
March 3 – REMEMBER TO VOTE! Even if you’re not a registered Democrat voting in the primary that day, it’s still important to go to the polls and vote no on 1 to protect Maine’s children.
We’ve watched as the headlines cover outbreaks of diseases that should be ancient history, including chicken pox, whooping cough, and measles. Maine’s vaccine opt-out rates threaten our community immunity and put kids at risk—but there is hope.
After an extraordinary effort, PL 154 was signed into law in May of 2019. The law eliminates non-medical exemptions to immunization requirements for school attendance and healthcare employment, closing the loopholes that threaten our health and safety.
Unfortunately, anti-vaccine activists have forced an effort to overturn the law on the upcoming March 3rd ballot. They are raising money and grassroots momentum to repeal this critical public health legislation. This vote will be the first of its kind in the United States, and the results will set the standard for children’s safety across the country.
We have one chance to defeat this veto.
Maine Families for Vaccines is leading this fight. MFV is a volunteer-led grassroots network of parents, physicians, experts, disease survivors, school nurses, and others who have organized to oppose the veto.
Now MFV has joined forces with a coalition of over 50 Maine organizations to defeat the veto. We need you to join us, too.
