School Districts: Vaccination Outreach Was Time Consuming, But Worth It

SoCal School Districts Use Different Tactics To Implement Vaccination Law
As the academic year gets underway, large school districts in Southern California are using different tactics to enforce the state's new vaccination law. Under the law, parents can no longer opt out of vaccinating their incoming kindergartners or 7th graders on the basis of personal or religious beliefs. Only medical exemptions remain. The law also applies to students of any grade who are new to a school. (Plevin, 9/7)
