The New Vaccine Law – 277

The New Vaccine Law

We have gotten several inquiries on the new law eliminating “personal belief exemptions” for mandated vaccines in 2016.

Starting next year all school children must be vaccinated unless there is a medical reason why they should not. Medical exemptions will be based in some part by the Pediatricians discretion, but must be based on some scientifically proven medical condition. The Academy of Pediatrics has pledged to give more specific guidelines for those exemptions this week.

Parents opting to give vaccines at a slower pace than the CDC recommends should be fine unless the pace is ridiculously slow.

More information should be available soon.
