Some parents don't want their children vaccination and get a personal belief exemption. But in California the Governor Jerry Grown signed a law only kids with medical problems can go to school without vaccinations. Now if a parent still refuses to vaccinate for personal reasons their child has to be home schooled.

What Kind of legislation did the Governor of California pass that is controversial?

Tuesday June 30, 2015, is a good day for some parents; they are jubilant, and some parents are furious showing up in the capitol of California, Sacramento to protest. What happened?
The bill SB277. It all started out by two sensible senators. One comes from Sacramento, Richard Pan and Ben Allen of Santa Monica, California. They started and sponsored this bill because of last year's outbreak of measles. It was this case when an unvaccinated person went to Disneyland and spread I The person spread it to somebody, and it started an outbreak of more than a hundred people. There there were even people in Mexico who caught it from the Disneyland outbreak.

Who needs to be vaccinated that previously wasn't required?

This SB277 is that all students have to be vaccinated with the vaccines required for their age. Some parents don't believe in vaccines. In California, unless you get an exemption from a doctor, your child by law needs to be vaccinated. These vaccinations are needed by the time they start school, The student that has a bad immune systems, don't have to be vaccinated. But personal beliefs no longer count when a child is in daycare, public and private schools. If the parent still refuses to vaccinate and they have no proven medical reason, then those children aren't getting into school and will have to be homeschooled

Why did Jerry Brown sign that vaccination legislation?

Tuesday, June 30, 2015, California Governor Jerry Brown signed this bill, and it goes into effect next year. Governor Brown wrote he signed the bill because "The science is clear that vaccines dramatically protect children against some infections and dangerous diseases. While there is no true medical intervention is without risk. The risk shows that immunization powerfully benefits and protects the community".

Parents protest one of three strictest states for vaccination

The California is one of the three strictest states in the United States. It joins West Virginia and Missippi. The remainder of the forty-seven states allows personal beliefs to not get a child vaccinated. All they have to do is ask for exemption papers fill them out, and the child does not need to be vaccinated

Parents must be furious they were showing up for some time in the thousands that showed up and protested. It got so bad some that have to do with the bill have double security and people involved are receiving death threats.
