Call Your Representative Support SB 866
SB866 is a bill that permits minors 12 years and older to consent to vaccination when the vaccine is approved by the FDA and meets the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on the Immunization Practices (ACIP) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
SB 866 builds on the existing law, which currently allows minors and over to make choices about their bodies around reproductive healthcare. SB866 protects the ability of young people to live healthy lives, helps keep schools open and safe, increases vaccination rates, and promotes public health in California. Senators Hertzberg (District 18) and Stern (District 27), members of the Judiciary Committee are wavering in their support.
Making vaccination as widely available as possible is an important public health goal.
If you live in their districts please call your Senator, and let him know as a constituent you support this bill and you expect them to vote in favor of its passage.
Senator Hertzberg – (818) 901-5588
Senator Stern - (818) 876-3352
