Immunization Order Did Not Violate Mother's Free Exercise Rights

In In re Julie C.and Anthony Price, 2019 Cal. App. Unpub. LEXIS 935 (CA App., Feb. 6, 2019), a California state appellate court held that a wife's free exercise rights were not violated by a court order in a divorce proceeding requiring immunization of her children.  In 2016, California repealed the personal belief exemption from immunization requirements for school children. The court ordered the immunizations on motion of the husband, finding that immunization was in the best interest of the children. (Corrected. Earlier version referred to wrong court).
