Court Rules In Favor Of School Vaccination Requirements

Albany, N.Y. - A judge has ruled in favor of New York's controversial school vaccination requirements.

Over 50 families filed a lawsuit earlier this year, claiming the new legislation that eliminates religious exemptions violates the constitution. But the Albany County Supreme Court disagreed, saying the law was put in place due to public health concerns and not to affect anyone's religious freedom rights.

The vaccination law was passed on the heels of an outbreak of measles in New York City and surrounding counties.

Parents, Doctors and State Health officials have not been on the same page since the law went into effect in June making for a messy roll-out.
