CHARLESTON, WV (WOAY) – A new bill being introduced in the West Virginia Senate would provide exemptions to mandatory immunizations for medical, religious, and personal objections.
Senator Mark Maynard, R-Wayne is the lead sponsor of the bill, with Rollan Roberts, R-Raleigh and Sue Cline, R-Wyoming as co-sponsors.
Right now, immunization is required for all children entering public school against chickenpox, hepatitis-b, measles, meningitis, mumps, diphtheria, polio, rubella, tetanus, and whooping cough.
Maynard believes that autism is linked to vaccinations.
