Vaccination reporting bill signed into law in Colorado

DENVER - A bill involving vaccination reporting has been signed into law.

The measure requires schools and day care centers to disclose vaccination rates.

The original proposal would have made it harder for Colorado parents to opt out of vaccinating their children. However, the bill was dramatically watered down amid opposition.

Colorado is among a handful of states that allow parents to sign "personal belief" exemptions from required immunizations. Last school year Colorado had the 6th-highest rate of immunization exemption in the U.S. at 4.3 percent.
