638 in law to applause Friday at Vancouver City Hall, eliminating personal and philosophical exceptions to requirements that children in public and private schools and licensed kindergartens receive measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines.

Outside the City Hall, protesters performed posters that opposed the bill and argued for elections on vaccinations.

Inslee said the new law aimed to end the measles outbreak in Washington and send a statement in the debate about the necessity of vaccination against parental control over their child’s care.

“We’re here to say something very simple,” Inslee said before signing the bill. “In the Washington state, we believe in our doctors, we believe in our nurses, we believe in our teachers, we believe in science, and we love our children. That is why in the Washington state we oppose measles.” [19659003] The bill erupted from Clark County’s outburst, which began in January, ended in late April and racked up 71 cases and also spread to King County and Multnomah County, Ore.

Christie Nadzieja, Bob Runnells and Katie Bauer twisted their backs on Inslee while he signed the bill in the Vancouver City Hall’s chamber.

Nadzieja, who threw her hood up when she turned her back, said she was continuing to fight for parents’ choice of vaccines. Runnells carried a manila cover filled with what he said was 5,000 signatures against HB 1638. He said the county’s outbreak “does not justify this overreaction to our personal health care”.

“I have the freedom to choose health care,” Runnells said.

Inslee, who runs the democratic nomination for the presidential election in 2020, says that science and safety for children is more important than personal choice.

“We should listen to health and science, not social media,” Inslee said. “Therefore, we need a national public health campaign on this issue to ensure that people in America have access to real science, based on real-world information rather than fear. It is science and truth that will keep us healthy rather than fear.” [19659010] Clark’s outbreak is one of the largest in the United States this year, which has seen more than 760 cases, the largest number since measles was eliminated from the country in 2000.

The outbreak cost Clark County nearly $ 870,000 to fight, almost excludes 850 students from the school and guessed the creation of the bill, which is sponsored by ropes. Paul Harris, a Republican in Vancouver and Rep. Monica Stonier, a Vancouver Democrat.

“Bills like this won’t be a law by mistake. If you see how Olympia works it wasn’t an accident, it shouldn’t be an accident,” Harris said at the signing.

Sen. Annette Cleveland, a Vancouver Democrat , gave a huge boost in pushing HB 1638 through the Senate, where the bill met with more resistance than in the House.

“In our society, we estimate our individual freedom and personal choices as we should,” Cleveland said. must also, as a society, draw a line when the personal freedoms really jeopardize the safety of others. Infectious disease should not really be a topic for debate. It is a threat to public health. In terms of public security, I believe that our decisions as public officials should be governed by fact and science. Because we must honestly remember that the opinion does not replace knowledge, passion is no substitute for knowledge and fear is not a substitute for truth. “

Harris called HB 1638″ Apple’s first piece. “He wants to see what the bill does to change the vaccination rates statewide before exploring any similar legislation for other schooling vaccines. He thinks the bill can change behavior and cultural norms.

Health Officer in Clark County Dr. Alan Melnick said he would extend the scope to eliminate personal exemptions for other vaccines and Cleveland submitted a bill during the recent legislative period that would have done so for all school-fed vaccines.

“At the end of The day we passed the bill that deals with the outbreak that was before us in Clark County, and I am very pleased with it, “Cleveland said.” As for the future, I’m not sure yet. We know that vaccines prevent disease, so it may be a problem we need to keep coming back to the next legislative session. “
