Bill Would Make “Opt-Out” A Little Tougher
The California Report

California is one of 20 states that allows parents to “opt out” of vaccines for their children simply by signing a form. It’s called a “personal belief exemption.” But AB 2109 would change that. The bill has cleared the Assembly and is starting its path through Senate committees.

If the bill becomes law, parents who wish to refuse vaccines would first need to receive counseling from a licensed health professional about the risks and benefits of skipping immunizations for their children.
