AB 2109, authored by Assembly member Pan of Sacramento, affects section 120365 of the CA Health and Safety Code to amend provisions of exemptions for immunizations given to school children. Existing law enforces full immunization of children attending public or private schools, nurseries, day cares and other types of care centers, as well as enforces exemptions with the authorization of an affidavit prepared by the parent or guardian who can claim that the immunizations contradict their personal beliefs. AB 2109 will require said letter or affidavit to be submitted with a completed form provided by the State Department of Public Health, which also includes the signature of a health care practitioner. This addition to existing law will become effective on or after January 1, 2014. Please contact us at 800-666-1917 for more information regarding the legislative research for this bill.
