This is our first in a series of FOUR articles highlighting each Action Item from the TFVC Save Texas Action Plan The purpose is to give you some additional resources so you can more easily implement this Action Item today! Action Item One focuses on ways you can protect your medical freedom within your home and among your immediate family.
Obtain Medical ID Bracelets
🔹 Easy access to vaccine allergy information is imperative in times of emergency.
🔹 Suggested wording for bracelets: “vaccine allergy, medically exempt”
🔹 Where to purchase:
Great customer services & a variety of styles to choose from. You can order online and create your own engravings. It is suggested that when ordering for the first time that you call customer service for sizing assistance as the online guide is not accurate.
Great for those in the medical profession or for those looking for a more discreet, professional option. Your bracelet will have a unique number by which the information you choose to provide (medical history, allergies, etc.) can be accessed by those treating you in an emergency. Requires a membership.
A silicone sleeve compatible with Apple Watch, Fitbit, Samsung Gear, Garmin, TicWatch Pro, Disney Magic Bands, and more. A great cost-effective way to discreetly have your medical history and allergy information readily available at all times.
Be Mindful of What You Post Online
🔹Even with the strictest privacy settings, highly personal posts or posts with your children are not advised since these images have been used against parents in court.
Have a CPS Action Plan
🔹 Yearly visits with an MD / DO (a paper trail of consistent medical care could be helpful)
🔹 Membership in an organization that provides CPS legal representation (For homeschoolers, TFVC recommends Heritage Defense and Texas Home School Coalition (THSC).)
🔹 Know your rights if CPS knocks:
– Stay calm. Be polite. No not volunteer any info. Do not sign anything.
– If they do not have a warrant, do not let them into your home. Say, “I know you are looking out for the best interest of my children. If you’ll give me your business card, I will call you within 48 hours.”
– After they leave, call your family lawyer, your CPS legal representation, or Krista McIntire with Family Rights Advocacy: 817-715-7022.
