A while ago, I wrote about a bill in the California legislature intended to remove non-medical exemptions to vaccination requirements for children in the state. Despite often vicious and irrational opposition, science and reason and public health have won the day! The bill passed all committees and both houses of the legislature, and it has now been signed into law by the governor.
It wouldn’t surprise me if there are legal challenges to the law ahead, but I am proud of my state and grateful as a parent that the politicians have made the right choice for public health.
I share your pride and gratitude all the way from Wisconsin! Good job California!
