What are Jessica Biel’s views on vaccines?
Environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Biel appeared at the California State Assembly together on June 12, 2019. His work focuses on allegations that vaccinations are unsafe for children and could potentially injure those that are “medically fragile.”
Kennedy Jr. and Biel posed with other several activists and legislators uploaded to Instagram. In one of the captions for the pictures, Kennedy Jr. called Biel “courageous.”
The unlikely pair came together to lobby against SB 276. The existing law requires parents to submit a written statement provided by a licensed physician to exempt their child from vaccination. SB 276 would also require a form signed by an official from the State Department of Public Health.
Kennedy Jr., Biel, and other anti-vaxx advocates all oppose the bill because they claim it would reduce the medical exemptions by up to 40%. However, vaccination advocates say SB 276 will have a minimal effect on those that have valid reasons for vaccine exemptions.
In 2015, several publications reported Biel and Timberlake would not vaccinate their child because she felt the “vaccinations could cause complications.” However, Biel has never publicly said anything about the hot topic.
Kennedy Jr. did confirm that Biel is “a very effective advocate,” and they both believe the SB 276 is forcing children to get vaccinated. Biel has received social media backlash for her beliefs, and she publicly responded in an Instagram post. Biel explained she not against vaccinations and supports everyone’s personal decision.
