Press Conference: CHD Legal Team Sues New York State for Children Denied Lawful Medical Exemptions

IMPORTED FROM YOUTUBE

Attorneys Sujata Gibson, Michael H. Sussman, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Mary Holland filed a class action lawsuit last Thursday in Federal Court challenging the constitutionality of New York State’s Department of Health regulations that allow school principals to overrule treating physicians on recommendations about medical exemptions to immunization for medically fragile kids.

The named plaintiffs, eight New York State families whose valid medical exemptions for their school children were overruled, and Children’s Health Defense (CHD) ask that the court declare the state policy unconstitutional and allow the children back into school.

This widespread practice of rejecting valid medical exemptions is especially bewildering as New York State repealed the religious exemption to vaccination in June 2019, arguing that it was to protect immunocompromised and medically vulnerable children.
