“AAP leaders have called for elimination of non-medical* exemptions to vaccination to be the top priority for the year, ranking it first among the top 10 resolutions during the Annual Leadership Forum (ALF).
“Given the measles outbreaks, prioritizing the elimination of non-medical vaccine exemptions is a timely undertaking,” said AAP President Kyle E. Yasuda, M.D., FAAP.
The resolution asks the Academy’s Board of Directors to advocate for the “development of a toolkit that highlights successful chapter strategies for the purpose of helping chapters work with their state legislatures to eliminate/reduce non-medical* exemptions that have allowed immunization refusals.”
Top 10 resolutions:
