Bill Requiring Vaccinations is Approved by the California Senate

The California Senate approved a bill on Thursday, May 14 requiring vaccinations for almost all children enrolling in state licensed daycares or schools.

Legislators voted 25-10 in favor of the bill, which still allows the medical exemption clause for unvaccinated children with medical conditions.

Triggered by a measles outbreak in December at Disneyland where 131 Californians contracted the disease, the California Department of Public Health declared the outbreak contained in April. Seven other states and two countries reported measles cases linked to the initial Disneyland epidemic. The bill now moves to the state Assembly. 

If the bill becomes a law, California will be the third state to ban religious exemptions, and the 32nd state to ban the personal belief exemption.
