Sacramento school district refuses to admit 145 unvaccinated students on first day of school

In Sacramento this week, “scores” of students were sent home on the first day of school when they failed to provide proof of vaccination.

According to The Sacramento Bee, 145 children in the Folsom Cordova Unified School District were sent home for lack of immunization records, as a result of the new state law which took effect in July 1, eliminating personal/religious belief exemptions for vaccines.

The new law mandates that students entering the two “checkpoint years” of kindergarten and seventh grade must now provide full vaccination records.

District spokesman Daniel Thigpen said the district was hoping that the students sent home on Tuesday – 72 children from kindergarten and 73 from seventh grade – will go through with their shots and return to class this week. The SacBee reports that as of this Friday, 98 students remained out of class – 37 in kindergarten and 61 in seventh grade.

From the Sacramento Bee:

By the start of school, the district had identified 157 students who were unvaccinated out of 1,462 kindergarteners and seventh-graders, he said.

On that day, 103 unvaccinated students arrived at school, Sanders said. He said their parents either returned that day with the proper paperwork or took their children to one of the district’s two clinics – a stationary clinic at Natomas High School or a mobile clinic at a middle school.

Since then, Sanders said, the district has been working to reach the 54 students to see if they need help. Some turned out to have transferred to other districts.

Vaccinations have been required in California schools since 1962. But in the wake of a measles outbreak last year, Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill into law that eliminated the personal and religious belief exemptions that anti-vaxxers often used to get around the mandate.

    Claiming religious exemption is a stretch since vaccinations were not available when the bible was written nor was there even a word for it. It’s patently unfair to require vaccinations for everyone and exempt others for religious reasons. Older, unvaccinated students put younger children who have not yet received all vaccinations at risk. They put students whose health may be compromised by illness or birth defects at risk. If you don’t want to vaccinate then homeschool or “Christian” school your student, but you don’t have the right to put others in danger.

    Wow, Teneal you opened up a can of worms. I am not a scientist. What I do know is my 27 year old daughter is allergic to the whooping cough vacine. She had it at 2 months old. Her very competent pediatrician at the time said she can’t have it again. So I worry whenever I hear about it going around. I worry because parents are choosing to have children unvaccinated. This is like most situations they are not a problem until they affect you personally. I pray your children stay healthy and disease free.

    It is the common sense thing to do. Evidence-based medicine shows vaccines are safe and protects your child and the community from deadly diseases. I was vaccinated , so were my children. I have no patience with anti-vaxxers who are causing comebacks of diseases.
