LA Times: Senate committee OKs bill that would remove vaccine exemptions in California
LOS ANGELES — A key Senate committee has approved a bill that would remove vaccine exemptions for school children in California, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The measure passed the Senate Education Committee after its authors agreed to changes that would make it easier for parents to home-school their children if they decided against immunization, according to the report.
Under the legislature, parents would no longer be able to exempt their children from vaccinations based on personal beliefs. The only waiver would be for medical reasons, the article stated.
The bill now heads to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
