California kids 12 and over could receive vaccines without parental consent

A bill in the California legislature would allow children over 12 in California to receive vaccines without parental consent.

The bill is sponsored by State Senators Richard Pan and Scott Wiener.

Currently, state law allows for minors to consent to medical care and treatment without the consent of a parent or guardian under certain circumstances. Those include “infectious, contagious, or communicable” diseases as determined by the State Public Health Officer.
