The current spread of measles has made clear the dangers of allowing children to go unvaccinated. There is no scientific basis for not vaccinating our children, and the risk we take on by allowing this to happen is a public health problem. I'm supportive of Senator Richard Pan's proposed legislation to remove the Personal Belief Exemption from the vaccination requirement, and I will be authoring a resolution at the Board of Supervisors in support of this legislation. We should be moving forward, not backwards, in our efforts to protect our children from the spread of disease.
