Comment on Colorado bill to tighten vaccine exemptions gets first hearing

Colorado bill to tighten vaccine exemptions gets first hearing

Medical experts call vaccines one of the most significant achievements ever in public health and polling data shows Coloradans strongly support them, but still a measure to tighten vaccine exemptions for children is facing a heated political fight. A bill seeking to increase Colorado’s low immunization rates by making the process to request nonmedical exemptions harder was killed last year after the Democratic governor and a vocal minority of parents opposed it. Now, a revamped version is set to be heard in a Senate committee on Wednesday, and parents are again expected to fill the statehouse to testify against it. Senate Bill 163 is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Health & Human Services Committee after the Senate adjourns from its 9 a.m.
