Jessica Biel Clarifies She's 'Not Against Vaccinations,' But Supports Families Having Right to Make 'Educated Medical Decisions'

Jessica Biel is clarifying that she is not anti-vaccines after all those anti-vaxxer labels.

If you don’t know, Jessica was labeled as being anti-vaccines when she was seen lobbying with Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is known to be against vaccines.

Jessica is now explaining why she was lobbying against California’s anti-vaccine bill alongside Robert.

“This week I went to Sacramento to talk to legislators in California about a proposed bill. I am not against vaccinations — I support children getting vaccinations and I also support families having the right to make educated medical decisions for their children alongside their physicians,” Jessica posted on her Instagram account moments ago.

“My concern with #SB277 is solely regarding medical exemptions. My dearest friends have a child with a medical condition that warrants an exemption from vaccinations, and should this bill pass, it would greatly affect their family’s ability to care for their child in this state,” Jessica continued. “That’s why I spoke to legislators and argued against this bill. 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. I encourage everyone to read more on this issue and to learn about the intricacies of #SB277. Thank you to everyone who met with me this week to engage in this important discussion!”

Jessica Biel and her husband, Justin Timberlake, have a four-year-old son Silas Randall Timberlake.
