Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego), who voted for the measure, said she understood the personal nature of parents' decisions about their children's health.“While I respect the fundamental right to make that decision as a family,” Gonzalez told her colleagues, “we must balance that with the fact that none of us has the right to endanger others.”Assemblyman Mike Gatto, a Glendale Democrat, voted against the bill, saying it violated parental rights.“The broadness of this bill likely dooms it from a constitutional standpoint,” Gatto said, accusing the state of “infringing on the rights of children to attend school.”More than 13,500 California kindergarten students currently have waivers based on their parents' beliefs.
A parent group, A Voice For Choice, found Thursday's vote “unsettling,” spokeswoman Christina Hildebrand said.

Those with medical conditions such as allergies and immune-system deficiencies, confirmed by a physician, would be excused from immunization.
An employee shall receive an influenza vaccination between August 1 and December 1 of each year. The two most extreme positions are those doctors who are 100% against vaccines and do not administer them at all, and those doctors that believe that ALL vaccines are safe and effective for ALL people, ALL the time, by force if necessary.
This bill eliminates medical autonomy, crushes religious freedom, undermines personal freedom, and burdens quality providers with a non-optional series of medical interventions in the form of mandated vaccines that are not even 100% effective. Very few doctors fall into either of these two extremist positions, and yet it is the extreme pro-vaccine position that is presented by the U. Government and mainstream media as being the dominant position of the medical field.
