California used to be one of the few states that made it easy to get a personal exemption to opt out of vaccinations. In 2014, that will change.
On January 1, a new law will go into effect in the state that will require parents who file a personal belief exemption to include a document signed by a doctor or other approved medical practitioner acknowledging they have been educated about the pros and cons of vaccines.
Dr. Dean Blumberg, a physician at UC Davis Medical Center, testified in support of the new law. He believes that most children should be vaccinated:
“Immunizations work and children do benefit. I thought the law was a good one. I was all for it.”
