Lawmakers reject bills to loosen vaccine requirements in schools

by Will Tuell

Majority Democrats in the Maine House turned aside four bills that would have rolled back school vaccination requirements May 4. The bills, some in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, others an effort to repeal 2019 legislation that would have closed religious and philosophical exemptions to the state’s child vaccination law, were rebuffed mostly on party lines.
