Governor signs law strengthening MMR immunization requirements:
Last Friday Governor Jay Inslee signed EHB 1638, updating Washington state's school and child care immunization requirements to remove the personal/philosophical exemption for the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine. The law takes effect July 28, 2019 and applies to public and private schools and child cares.
