Immunization Policy in NYC upheld!

An informative article in the NYTimes discusses the New York City vaccination policy in detail… specifically since it was recently called into question.

Unfortunately, we have the “freedom” to not let our children get vaccinated if we don’t want to in this country.  To counter this, an NYC policy states that unimmunized children can be bared from public schools when another student has a vaccine-preventable disease.  A nice way to keep disease from spreading…

Recently, several families in NYC have called this policy into question since their children have been kept from school because they were not immunized due to “religious” reasons; and that this policy prevents their religious freedom.

Fortunately, the Supreme Court Judge Kuntz wrote in his ruling that “religious objectors are not constitutionally exempt from vaccinations,” and has voted to uphold the policy.

Good work NYC.
