Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina said Thursday that vaccinations should be left up to parents — a view that puts her in sharp contrast with at least one other Republican presidential candidate.
“First of all, we must protect religious liberty and someone’s ability to practice their religion,” Fiorina said Thursday when asked about religious freedom and vaccinations at a town hall event in Iowa. “We must devote energy and resources to doing so, period. When in doubt, it is always the parents’ choice.”
Fiorina said her daughter was “bullied” by a school nurse into giving Fiorina’s granddaughter an HPV shot.
“Our daughter said, ‘You know, measles is one thing, but some of these vaccinations now that they’re asking particularly young girls to get at age 10 and 11, I don’t want to do that.’ And I said, ‘I don’t want you to do it, either,’” Fiorina said. “And she got bullied, she got bullied by a school nurse.”
