Vaccinate All Children Act of 2015

This bill amends the Public Health Service Act to prohibit the Department of Health and Human Services from awarding grants to public entities of a state for preventive health service programs unless the state requires each student in public elementary or secondary school to be vaccinated in accordance with the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. The bill provides an exception for students whose health would be endangered by vaccination in the opinion of a physician conforming to the accepted standard of medical care.

Should vaccines be mandatory? New California law sparks debate
Jun. 30, 2015 at 2:08 PMLinda Carroll

TODAY
In the wake of the measles outbreak that started in Disneyland, more than 70 vaccine-related laws are being debated in state legislatures around the country.

With California Gov. Jerry Brown signing a bill Tuesday that removes most of the state's vaccination exemptions, the polarizing debate over whether parents should have the right to refuse vaccinations for their children has just gotten hotter.
