SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KABC) -- There is a new push underway to toughen California's immunization law.
A state lawmaker has introduced a bill that would ban anti-vaccine parents from doctor-shopping for medical exemptions.
Under California law, every child in California must receive mandatory vaccinations unless they have a medical exemption.
But Sacramento Sen. Richard Pan, who is a doctor, said the number of unvaccinated children in California is spiking.
He blames crooked doctors.
Senate Bill 276 would prohibit doctors from giving vaccine exemptions .
Instead, parents who want to petition to let their children attend school without vaccines would have to ask the California Department of Public Health.
