House Bill 1015: Immunization Requirements
Sponsors:
Representatives Bailey, Cody, Hinkle, Appleton, Seaquist, Roberts, Kagi, Jinkins, Johnson, Warnick, Orcutt, Moeller, Pedersen, Billig, Ladenburg, Van De Wege
Summary:

HB 1015 would negate the existence of any personal objection to immunizations based on religious or philosophical reasons. Families would have to get a doctor's permission to get an exemption. This would increase costs to families, and take the decision-making out of their hands.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose.
Action Requested:
None at this time
Status:

2/15/2011 - (Senate) Sent to the Health and Long Term Care Committee

Background:

Currently, Washington families are entitled to a religious exemption, without it needing to be approved or verified.
