A bill that would require mandatory vaccinations for nearly all children enrolled in schools in California is on its way to Governor Jerry Brown’s desk after clearing its last legislative hurdle Monday afternoon.
Under the proposal, children enrolling in public or private schools, or day care, would be required to have certain vaccinations, such as those guarding against measles or whooping cough. Parents no longer would be able to cite personal or religious beliefs to decline the immunizations.
Those who decline the vaccinations would have to enroll their children in a home-based private school or public independent study program based off campus.
