Giving California some of the strictest school vaccination requirements in the nation could help prevent outbreaks of disease like the measles flare-up at Disneyland, experts say.

Lawmakers introduced a measure eliminating the state’s personal belief exemption for vaccines after the outbreak at the theme park in December infected over 100 people in the U.S. and Mexico. The bill likely would be successful in increasing immunization rates and stopping the spread of disease, pediatric doctors said Monday after the state Senate sent the legislation to the governor.
