Vaccines and SB277 are still making headlines in the news. Do you have questions about this new bill or about vaccines in general?
Instead of writing a big long article, I decided to provide you with the following resources:
Senate bill 277 proposes to mandate for all children the administration of 10 vaccinations (49 doses birth to 6 years old alone, and 69 total by age 18) for entry into any day care facilities, public, private and home schools in California. This bill would eliminate the exemption from vaccination based upon personal beliefs, taking along with it religious exemptions, and leaving only hard to obtain medical exemptions as options for parents to opt out of even one vaccine for their children. SB277 has an added clause stating that the state department of health can add an unlimited amount of new vaccines to the mandate in the future “as they deem necessary.” Combined with California Compulsory Education laws, which state that all children aged 6-18 years must attend school full time or risk being truant, SB277 threatens to criminalize parents for non-compliance with the vaccine mandate.
I would be happy to answer any questions you might have about vaccines or SB277. If you would like to be a part of the referendum action, we do have the form to fill out at the office. Feel free to stop by any time!
