Governor Brown signed SB277 *Because* of the strong medical exemption provision

  • Posted by Dr. Jay Gordon

Governor Brown signed this law because of the strong medical exemption provisions. He recognized that parents with reasonable medical objections—as opposed to personal or religious objections—must still have access to exemptions for their children.

Consult with a physician who knows your child and your family.

No one should scare you into or out of vaccinating.

This not a well-written nor well thought-out law and there will be legal challenges soon. In the meantime, read the law, understand the “grandfather” clauses from kindergarten through seventh grade and then from seventh grade through the end of high school. Also please know that almost every college will require vaccines for entry.
