Fewer than 90 percent of Galt’s River Oaks Elementary School 76 students who entered kindergarten last year were up-to-date on their childhood vaccinations, putting them at higher risk of contracting preventable diseases, health professionals claim.
Of those, seven students’ parents signed personal belief exemptions, claiming vaccines are counter to their beliefs, compared to 20 in the entire Galt Joint Union Elementary School District.
