LAPD refuses to Enforce Mandatory Vaccine Mandate

The Los Angeles County sheriff has refused to enforce California’s mandatory vaccine mandate, which requires children in public and private schools to be vaccinated unless they have a medical exemption. The mandate was passed by the state legislature last year after measles outbreaks across the country.

Two mothers reportedly sued the Sheriff because he will not exclude their unvaccinated children from schools. Their complaint accuses the sheriff of violating state law by failing to enforce the mandate, which went into effect July 1.

Parents have a legal right and a civic responsibility to make sure their children are vaccinated prior to school entry, says the California Department of Public Health. But right now, under a temporary court order, school-age children who have not been vaccinated for nonmedical reasons may be banned from attending school or other activities attended by many people. However they can request an exemption if their doctor says vaccines would be harmful to the child’s health.

According to a statement from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department We cannot support policies that place an additional burden on parents who already make sacrifices to keep their children safe and healthy, says Supervising Deputy Dora Noriega.

This is not the first time schools in California have had trouble with mandatory vaccine enforcement: in 2014, over 100 students were suspended from Huntington Beach High School for reportedly failing to provide documentation proving they had been vaccinated.
