ALERT! California Bill AB 659: HPV vaccine mandate for school kids.

February 9, 2023, California AB 659- HPV vaccine mandate bill was introduced for school kids grade 8 and up by Assembly Member Aguiar-Curry, and co-authored Assembly Members Wendy Carrillo, Friedman, Kalra, Ortega, Papan, and Blanca Rubio and Senator Wiener.

AB 659 will require the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine to attend 8-12 grade in public or private school, starting January 1 2024.

The bill would clarify the department’s authority to adopt HPV-related regulations for grades below the 8th grade level. By creating new duties for school districts, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.

  • California would be the first state to have an HPV vaccine mandate without non-medical exemptions available.
  • Personal or religious belief exemptions would not be available.
  • The bill would allow for the California Department of Health’s authority to use HPV-related regulations for students.
  • This bill is another obstacle for equal access to education.
