It started with a measles outbreak in 2014 that began at Disneyland. That outbreak was the last straw for California and the anti-vaccination movement. Its law changed so that it is now one of the most conservative states on requiring vaccination, not the most liberal. Gone is California's exemption for many and varied personal, religious beliefs. Now only a medical condition can cause an exemption from vaccination.
Parents can no longer avoid vaccination requirements by citing their personal beliefs against immunization. California, Mississippi, and West Virginia allow one exemption: a doctor must certify that a child has a medical condition making vaccination too risky. This law applies to both public and private schools. One example given is a child who has just had a bone marrow transplant for leukemia. It is too risky to vaccinate him. There are some other medical conditions which also make vaccination risky but they are small in number.
Otherwise, parents must produce documents proving their children have been inoculated against 10 designated disease, like chickenpox. Students without such vaccine documentation are barred from school (unless they qualify for the slim exemption).
The anti-vaccine movement saw this change as a violation of their personal freedoms. Some of them decided to home school their children in reaction to the change in the law. The only other choice is to move to another state which still allows personal belief exemptions.
