Duff Supports Eliminating Vaccination Exemptions

Today, Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) released the following statement in support of eliminating vaccination exemptions for children at Connecticut public schools:

“When children are not vaccinated it jeopardizes their health and safety, as well as the health of others around them. Rolling back the religious exemption from vaccines is a step in the right direction towards addressing this issue, and I’m pleased that the Department of Health and the Commissioner support this measure. Low immunization rates are a serious public health concern and it’s critical that we work with health professionals across the state to fight back against misinformation on this topic.”
