Connecticut Eliminates Future Religious Exemptions From Immunization Requirements

Yesterday Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont signed HB 6423 (full text) which eliminates the previously available religious exemption from the state's immunization requirements for school children. However, the new law allows children who have previously been granted a religious exemption to maintain the exemption, with certain exceptions for grade-school children.  AP reports on the adoption of the new law.
