Senate Bill 277: Public Health: Vaccinations would prohibit private or public child care centers from admitting children unless they are immunized against the following ten (10) childhood diseases:
(1) Diphtheria, (2) Hepatitis B, (3) Haemophilus influenzae type b, (4) Measles, (5) Mumps, (6) Pertussis (whooping cough), (7) Poliomyelitis, (8) Rubella, (9) Tetanus, and (10) Varicella (chickenpox).
Exemptions will only be given for medical reasons and children enrolled in a home-based private school or independent study program. The medical exemption, written statement by a licensed physician, must indicate the specific physical condition of the child, and the nature and probable duration of the medical condition for which the physician does not recommend immunization.
Parents can still submit a personal belief exemption until January 1, 2016 and it shall remain until the child advances to the next “grade span” or changes schools. For purposes of childcare, a personal belief exemption will remain with the child until the child transitions into kindergarten. Parents who submit a personal belief exemption should be informed that the exemption will not be honored once the child leaves the current childcare facility to attend kindergarten.
