5 Predictions Since California Passed Vaccination Law

By    |   Friday, 25 September 2015 12:51 PM EDT

California’s passage of a stricter vaccine law has upset many who oppose requiring parents to give their children shots.

SB 277 removes all exemptions for personal and religious beliefs in an attempt to decrease the number of children who do not get injections following an outbreak of measles at Disneyland last year.

Here are some predictions being made about the outcome of the bill’s passage:

VOTE NOW: Should Parents Have the Freedom Not to Vaccinate Their Children?

1. Homeschooling rates will increase.

While private and public schoolchildren are required to have vaccinations, homeschooled students are not, and pediatrician Robert Sears told Religion News Service he predicts this will lead to an increase in this particular population.

2. Families will lose trust in the government and medical system.

Sears predicted the mandate will foment further loss of trust in the government and medical system.

3. Lawsuits are expected.

According to The Sacramento Bee, opponents predict
the new law will end in court as critics argue unvaccinated children will be blocked from receiving an education.

4. Some are unsure of how it will affect city schools.

“It’s difficult to predict how a new law is going to affect you until it actually takes effect, and we have some time to plan,” Carolyn Seaton, the Manhattan Beach Unified School District Human Resources Executive Director, told the Daily Breeze. “Certainly, we knew this was a possibility. Hopefully [parents will] all comply with the law, and we can enroll their students accordingly.”

5. Immunization rates will increase.

Dr. Mark Schleiss, a University of Minnesota pediatrician specializing in infectious disease, told CBS News he predicts the law will have an effect on immunization numbers. He said he thinks some parents aren’t committed to withholding vaccinating their children but rather do so out of convenience.
