NEW JERSEY: Democrats pushing for mandatory flu vaccination for kids

Sharing is Caring!

New Jersey Democrats Herb Conaway, Jr. and Andrew Zwicker, serving the Middlesex/Mercer/Somerset/Hunterdon region of the state in the New Jersey Assembly are calling for mandatory flu vaccinations for students in K-12 and college across New Jersey.

The bill, A4576 will require students and certain other children to be annually vaccinated for influenza as a condition of enrollment at public and private K-12 schools, preschools, child care centers, and institutions of higher education.

If passed the law states any principal, director, or another person in charge of a public or private school in this State shall not knowingly admit or retain in grades K through 12 a child whose parent or guardian has failed to submit acceptable evidence, by December 31 of the relevant school year, showing that the child has received an annual vaccination for influenza.
