Vaccine Exemptions: Bill Would Make It Harder For Colorado Parents To Opt Out

Vaccine Exemptions: Bill Would Make It Harder For Colorado Parents To Opt Out

Apr 15 2019

Colorado could be the next state to pass a law to get more children vaccinated. Lawmakers are debating the new bill Monday afternoon.

The bill requires the state health department to develop a standardized form and a strict process for parents who choose to not immunize their children — whether it be for medical, personal or religious reasons.

Additionally, the bill will overhaul how the state keeps track of who has received immunizations.

The bill’s sponsors say they want schools to be safe for all kids. But on Sunday, some parents protested the bill outside of the state Capitol.
