CAMPBELL (KRON) — The vaccination battle is heating up, as California’s Senate could vote this week on a controversial bill that keep un-vaccinated students from attending traditional schools.
The proposed bill would eliminate California’s personal belief and religious exemptions so unvaccinated children would not be able to attend public or private schools. Medical waivers would only be available for children who have health problems.
The authors amended the bill so parents can seek an exemption if the state adds any additional vaccination requirements.
The bill, SB277, has generated intense debates, pitting parental rights against community health. Some of those parents took to the streets of Campbell to express their unhappiness with the proposed bill.
