I am Not Contagious

By Angela K. Pearson

A Book for Children Who Have Known the Sting of Rejection and Ostracism When Parents Have Decided Against Vaccination

Angela K. Pearson’s Movement to Protect Children’s Self-Esteem When the State Takes Away Their Right to Public Education — and Others Fear or Point Fingers

Angela K. Pearson had a very powerful reason to opt out of the standard CDC-recommended vaccination schedule for her youngest children. Immediately after her healthy elder son was vaccinated, he developed side effects and eventually the chronic symptoms of systemic lupus, the same autoimmune disease her father had, and which has caused lifelong challenges for her son.

Her daughter and youngest son, Grayson, have remained perfectly healthy without any vaccinations. And yet, on the heels of Grayson entering first grade—just weeks into the school year—in 2019, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a mandate that only vaccinated children could attend school in the state of New York. More than 26,000 children were banned from public and private education. (Similar laws have been enacted in California.) As a result, Angela was forced to quit her corporate career to be a stay-at-home home-schooling mom. But she was especially concerned about the impact that this rejection and the resulting ostracism by other children and parents on Grayson. So while seeking to restore his sense of self-esteem and emotional equilibrium, she hit upon the idea of a children’s book – for Grayson and other similarly-situated children, told from Grayson’s view point. Thus was born I am Not Contagious, a beautifully-illustrated children’s book that explores a child’s frustration at these adult issues, but also the wisdom to know there is nothing wrong with him. The book is a heartwarming story from a youngster’s perspective, filled with confidence, compassion and courage.

 But for Angela, the book is more than just a mission to help children through such challenging dilemmas. It is also one aspect of her quest for medical freedom for all parents and individuals seeking to make decisions that may run counter to government regulation and medical establishment practice or policy. She advocates for informed consent and believes that vaccines are not a one-size-fits-all solution…that ingredients and family history must be taken into consideration.

To help parents and students to process, synthesize and rebound from this societal rebuff, I am Not Contagious also includes puzzles and lessons on basic freedoms and individual rights. More of these, along with an audio of Grayson reading the book, and parent’s supportive worksheets, are available on www.angelapearson.com  And parents can actually purchase I am Not Contagious t-shirts on her website, www.angelapearson.com in support of solidarity.

Below are just a few Podcast Shows I have appeared on. Unfortunately, due to censorship I have been a target and it has been difficult to keep our story on Youtube and on any other platforms. This has been a learning curve and now I take a different approach to how I use “certain words” so that I may continue to share my story and Grayson’s story with others.
