Governor Signed: 06/26/2020

Bob will follow. CCDC position: Support.  A large unvacinated population may pose sunstantial risk to PWD.

Although this bill does not reduce access to vacination exemption, it has created controversy. Under current law, each student must submit either a certificate of immunization, a certificate of medical exemption, or a statement of nonmedical exemption for an immunization for a religious or personal belief.

The bill requires the department of public health and environment (department) to develop
standardized forms and a submission process for persons who want to claim a nonmedical exemption for an immunization for a religious or personal belief. A person who wants to claim a nonmedical exemption for an immunization for a religious or personal belief can do so by submitting to the school either:
  • A certificate of completion of the online education module;
or
  • A certificate of nonmedical exemption.

The bill also creates a vaccine-protected children standard, whereby the immunization rate goal for every school is 95% of the student population to be vaccinated. Every school shall publish its immunization rate and exemption rate annually and distribute it to the parents, legal guardians, and students of the school.
