House Bill 1136: A Bill Regarding Immunizations

Author:
Human Services Committee

Summary:
This bill does two things. First, it adds more vaccinations to the list of required immunizations. HSLDA generally opposes adding more state-mandated vaccinations because we believe this should be a decision between the parents and family physician. Second, the bill permits the state health officer to determine that under certain circumstances, such as shortage of vaccine, children do not have to have the vaccinations until the circumstances change.
