This decision is a win for parental choice and basic American civil rights. Let's hope this begins a trend back to a more rational form of pediatric healthcare and an end to mandates. From Autism Action Network:
A New York Court issued a decision today overturning a Bloomberg-era regulation requiring all children age 6-months through 59 months to obtain a flu shot in order to attend pre-schools, daycare centers or Head Start programs regulated by the City of New York. The rule was set to go into effect in January 1, 2016.
Aaron Siri, attorney for the families who sued the city and the families themselves will hold a press conference at 60 Centre Street, in Manhattan at 11 am on Thursday, December 17, 2015.
Read the decision here.
Please come to the New York Supreme Court Building steps at 60 Centre Street tomorrow, Thursday, Dec. 17, on Foley Square in downtown Manhattan for an 11 am press conference with the parents who sued the city and Aaron Siri, their attorney, who won a permanent injunction today on the New York City regulation that would require children ages 6-59 months to get flu shots or get kicked out of pre-school, daycare and Head Start.
There hasn't been a word in the media yet about the NY Supreme Court injunction shutting down the illegal city flu shot requirement. Coincidence? Not a chance. Don't bring signs. Please dress professionally. Be there. What you do counts.
Please share this message and post on social networks, and please make a donation if you can, we know the city will appeal this decision.
