News Release (Feb 11, 2015)
State Rep. Mike Schlossberg, D-Lehigh, announced today that he intends to sponsor bipartisan legislation that would limit the types of immunization exceptions granted in Pennsylvania.
Current state law allows for three exemptions to childhood immunization – medical, religious and philosophical. Schlossberg's proposal, which is also sponsored by Rep. Becky Corbin, R-Chester, would eliminate immunization exemptions that are requested for philosophical reasons.
"I am happy to work in a bipartisan manner with members of the Health Committee to attack this problem and improve Pennsylvania’ public health," Schlossberg said.
