California Schools Turn Away Unvaccinated Students

The Huffington Post: Some California schools are turning away middle and high school students who have not received a required whooping cough vaccine.

The law approved last September initially required all students entering grades seven through 12 to get vaccinated by the start of the 2011-2012 school year. Lawmakers passed a 30-day extension this summer as districts worried many students wouldn't meet the deadline.

Under California law, students also can still attend if their parents file a form saying they oppose vaccines.
