This is a stunning, but wonderful development out of NYC. ‘Bloomberg Era’ forced flu vaccinations on school children has been blocked by the courts!
A judge has blocked a New York City rule that required preschoolers to get flu shots.
Judge Manuel Mendez’s state Supreme Court ruling was issued early Thursday.
Five mothers sued last month. They argued that the 2013 Department of Health and Mental Hygiene rule was invalid because it wasn’t voted on by the Legislature.
They also argued they would be excluded from certain types of preschools if they chose not to get their children immunized.
City Health Commissioner Dr. Mary Bassett says she is “disappointed.”
This is a wonderfully refreshing and common sense ruling on the part of the Judge Manuel Mendez! We will continue to follow this story and relay all the developments!
