CALIFORNIA- Parents no longer have the option to opt out of vaccines for their children if they want them enrolled in public or private school. On Tuesday Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 277 into law, removing the personal beliefs exemption from state mandated vaccines.
The new law only allows children to opt-out for medical reasons indicated by a physician. It also exempts students in a home-based private school or independent study program. Children who are not immunized will not be admitted to private and public schools or day cares.
