(Worthy News) – A bill that would allow California youth ages 12 and older to receive vaccines without parental consent was advanced by state lawmakers.
Senate Bill 866 by Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, would allow California teens to receive any vaccine that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration and meet recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices without the consent of a parent or guardian. The bill was advanced by lawmakers in the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday.
Under existing law, minors ages 12-17 cannot be vaccinated without parental consent unless the vaccine is to prevent a sexually transmitted disease. Supporters of Wiener’s bill say changes to existing law are needed to reduce vaccine barriers for teens across California. [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
