Court Upholds N.Y. Childhood Vaccination Requirements
A three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday upheld New York state's requirement that children receive vaccinations prior to attending public school. The panel also upheld a lower court's decision that public school students who receive religious exemptions from the state's requirement can be barred from attending school during outbreaks of diseases.
