Impact of Eliminating Nonmedical exemptions in California.

Project Summary

Vaccines prevent a variety of infectious diseases and provide a substantial health care cost savings, however, many parents have become concerned with vaccines and are opting out of required vaccination for their children through nonmedical exemptions. Recently, California legislature passed SB277, a law that will remove all nonmedical exemptions. We will evaluate the impact of eliminating nonmedical exemptions in California to develop an evidence base for implementation of immunization legislation.
