Bill Eliminating Religious Exemption For Vaccines In Danger
TRENTON, N.J. - New Jersey State senators are scheduled to vote Monday on a vaccination bill that would require children to be vaccinated regardless of religious practices, unless they go to a private school or day care.
The last-minute addition of the private school stipulation has many people upset and angry as many Democratic senators are unsure about passing the vaccination bill.
Many are calling this new amendment unfair and it makes an exception for wealthy people.
Assemblyman (D-Union) James Holley says the revised bill will "segregate our students" and is an "abomination."
The vote is expected to take place Monday afternoon.
