Vaccinations in California
Re “California Is Set to Toughen Rules on Vaccinations” (news article, June 26):
Now that Gov. Jerry Brown has signed the bill, California should buy vaccine injury insurance for its residents, which would supplement payouts from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. A direct stake in avoiding vaccine injuries would incentivize the state to mandate only essential vaccines and to grant all proper medical exemptions.
It would also make the state a credible messenger of vaccine safety, especially if the insurance premium is low.
