California’s vaccination laws rank among the strictest nationwide. In 2015, the state eliminated exemptions for vaccination based on personal beliefs. Governor Newson recently signed legislation authored by California State Senator Dr. Richard Pan further tightening medical exemptions. What are the barriers, policy considerations and legal implications of protecting the public’s health through vaccinations? How do they intersect with personal choice, and how do they impact providers and employers? Panelists will explore these timely and important issues surrounding one of our most cost-effective “pillars” of public health. Speakers will include Dr. Robert Kim-Farley, MPHProfessor-in-Residence, UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, Lauren Dunning, JD, MPH, Director, Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging, Former Director, Government Affairs, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, and Dr. Ronald Ferdman, MEd, Attending Physician, Division of Clinical Immunology and Chief of Staff, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Associate Professor of Clinical Pediatrics, USC Keck School of Medicine.
