Gov. Jerry Brown today signed into law one of the toughest school vaccine restrictions in the country.

The law takes away the state’s personal belief exemption and will require almost all kids attending public and private schools to be vaccinated, leaving parents opposed to vaccinations with little clear recourse. Read the full story here.

Guests:

Senator Richard Pan (D-Sacramento), pediatrician and co-sponsor of SB 277, the bill that Gov. Brown signed into law today

Christina Hildebrand, president and founder of A Voice for Choice, a group opposed to the bill.
