Jessica Biel: ‘I am Not Against Vaccinations’

Senator Brian W. Jones  Twitter

Jessica Biel has never publicly said she's against vaccinations, but fans are now anxious because she met with CA lawmakers alongside Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., who has questioned vaccination programs.

Jessica Biel Timberlake spent her Tuesday lobbying 15 legislators against supporting a California vaccination bill alongside Robert F. Kennedy Jr.at the California State Assembly and State Senate in Sacramento.

Biel wrote that she argued against the bill because her friends have a child with a medical condition warranting an exemption and the bill would "greatly affect their family's ability to care for their child".

The vaccinations bill, SB 276, would create a standardized medical exemption request form that the state's public health officer or someone they designated would have to approve.

Biel came to join the lobby against SB 276, a state bill criticised by anti-vaccination advocates like Kennedy. Not because I don't believe in vaccinations, but because I believe in giving doctors and the families they treat the ability to decide what's best for their patients and the ability to provide that treatment.

Tragedy Strikes The Family of Former Plant HS Standout Eric Patterson
Saturday after hearing commotion in the house, located in the 500 block of West Plaza Place. Police said the shooting does not appear to be random.

According to the Los Angeles Times, officials estimate that about 40% of the 11,500 medical exemptions requested each year would be denied under the bill, which is now under review. 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.

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

In 2015, Kennedy compared child vaccinations to the "holocaust" in blaming inoculations on an increase in autism. (Children would not be immediately forced to get the vaccine - the bill would require a second exemption from the Department of Health to bypass vaccination).

"She's upset about this issue because of its particular cruelty", Kennedy told the Daily Beast. Most people who spoke were opponents of the bill who said vaccines had hurt their children, the Times reported.

The Tufts University drop-out has never before spoken out against vaccines, but a source told In Touch back in 2015 that Biel "refused to vaccinate" her son Silas Randall (now 4) with husband Justin Timberlake. "She feels that vaccination could cause complications".
