Santa Monica Daily Press

Congratulations are in order to state Sen. Ben Allen (D-Santa Monica) and Sen. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento), who co-sponsored SB 277 which requires that California school children must be vaccinated against communicable diseases such as measles and whooping cough. SB 277 was signed into law June 30 by Gov. Jerry Brown.

The new law requires vaccinations against measles and whooping cough for nearly all public and private school children including those in daycare.
