Scores of California students may be sent home on their first day of school because of a new vaccine law that took effect this year.
The new state law took effect July 1. Now, parents can no longer use personal or religious beliefs as a reason not to have their kids immunized.
This school year, kindergartners and seventh graders must show proof of immunizations.
Monday WAS the first day of school for kids in Oakland. Hundreds of them were expected to be sent home.
