HB 1379 (2022)

Decrease and limit current vaccine requirements for children

Summary:

Limits the current statewide immunization requirements for children to those diseases already identified in state law: diphtheria, mumps, pertussis, poliomyelitis, rubella, rubeola, and tetanus. This bill then repeals the Department of Health and Human Service's rulemaking authority to add required immunizations to this list. For example, current rules also require a chickenpox vaccine.
