Calif. Senators Introduce Bill To End All Personal Belief Exemptions to State Vaccine Requirements
State Sens. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento) and Ben Allen (D-Redondo Beach) have introduced a bill (SB 277) that would end all personal belief exemptions to childhood vaccination requirements. If enacted, California would become the third state to only allow exemptions in cases when it is medically necessary.
