Vaccination Bill Passes Assembly

The state Assembly has approved a controversial bill to boost vaccination rates by ending “personal belief exemptions” for parents of school children. The measure has drawn heated opposition from some parents rights groups and people who claim vaccinations cause autism and other health problems. Supporters say vaccinations are safe, and want to close loopholes that leave pockets of unvaccinated children in some communities. Christopher Martinez reports from Sacramento.
