'Anti-vaxxers' lose: State Senate removes exemption for vaccinations

Washington has dealt a blow to the so-called "anti-vaxxers."

The Washington Legislature is poised to remove personal and philosophical beliefs as grounds for exempting school-bound children from being vaccinated against measles, mumps and rubella.

The State Senate passed legislation by a 25-22 vote on Wednesday night, after Republicans tried to stall the bill against a 5 p.m. deadline. They then voted No.

The legislation goes back to the House. which on a more bipartisan vote earlier passed a similar version of the bill. Assuming the two chambers can agree, Gov. Jay Inslee is expected to sign the bill into law.

Republicans continue to be anti science.

2. Russian bots have been part of the anti vax campaign...

they want to divide and conquer our democracy in every way imaginable. We must stop them at the state and local levels.
