Jessica Biel says she's not against vaccination

ANI  |  Hollywood 

After reports of Jessica joining Jr. to lobby against a state pro-vaccine bill surfaced, took to her account on Thursday morning to clear the air.

"I am not against I support children getting and I also support families having the right to make educated medical decisions for their children alongside their physicians," wrote on

"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," she added.

"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," Biel said.

The bill has received criticism by anti-advocates like Kennedy. Once passed, the bill would decrease the medical exemptions from vaccines that don't have approval from state public health officers.
