The Medical Board of California is considering SB276 again. The opposition is planning a major effort to try to sway them against SB276. Please help us make sure the members of the Medical Board know that the vast majority of Californians support SB276 specifically and vaccines more broadly.
ACTION NEEDED: Please take some time to write a quick note to the Medical Board telling them you SUPPORT science-based public health policy, that SB276 is necessary to ensure immunocompromised children are safe from preventable disease at school, and that you encourage them to stand with the doctors, nurses, and parents of California in endorsing SB276 without reservation.
