New law would change vaccination rules in WA

OLYMPIA, Wash -    Last Friday, a bill was introduced in Olympia that could change vaccination rules in Washington state.

Representative Paul Harris (R-Vancouver) proposed house bill 1638 to change exemptions for measles, mumps and rubella vaccinations. Currently all parents need to do is a claim a "philosophical or personal objection" to the vaccine to avoid their children getting them. 

The new law, if passed, would remove that exemption.
