SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KGO) -- State senators will decide Monday on a bill that would require vaccinations for every child attending school in California.

The bill would eliminate nearly every vaccine exemption that exists now.

Senators must vote on the bill again, because it was amended before being passed in the Assembly.

If the Senate approves the bill, it then goes to Gov. Jerry Brown.

Opponents of the bill have vowed to keep fighting it, even if it becomes a law.
