Next Up for Vaccines: Required for California’s Child Care Workers?
KQED Radio

While a move to abolish the vaccine “personal belief exemption” has dominated headlines in the last weeks across California, two other vaccine-related bills are making their way through the Legislature a bit more quietly. One would require preschool and child care workers to have certain vaccinations; another seeks to improve vaccination rates for 2-year-olds.

If SB 792 becomes law, California will be the first state in the country to require that all preschool and child care workers be immunized against measles, pertussis and the flu.
