The Colorado Legislature will be discussing the merits of a new bill being introduced this week that will make it more difficult for parents to not vaccinate their children.

The bill being introduced requires parents who wish to opt-out to submit a medical form signed by a medical professional or watch a video online produced by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. As it currently stands all parents need to do is submit an opt-out form.

For some parents, it doesn't matter what you produce as long as their children aren't forced to be inoculated. Groups such as Colorado Health Choice Alliance and Medical Autonomy Colorado oppose any legislation that would force them to inoculate their children. For many, adverse reactions to the inoculations are reason enough to bypass them?

Like other states, some in Colorado have struggled with vaccinating their children and professionals urge parents to talk to their doctor and get all of the information to then make a better, healthier choice for their children as well as the children of other parents who do inoculate their children.

This bill, if passed, will set guidelines for parents concerning inoculating their children.
