In the news this morning, the national debate over vaccine exemptions will rear its head in Maine today when lawmakers begin to consider proposals to make it harder for parents to forgo vaccinating their children.  Specifically, a bill before the Legislature would remove the philosophical exemption.  Another would require a doctor to sign off on a request from parents to opt out for personal reasons.  It is a "parents rights" versus "public safety" issue.  The hearing began at 9:30 this morning.
