New York joined California, West Virginia and Missouri to be the 4th state to allow only medical exemptions as reasons school age children are not vaccinated. This is a huge step. This is not about religion or freedom of speech. Parents can opt to not vaccinate their children. But, if they do, they cannot attend public school. Thank you to all our state legislators for seeing the wisdom in this despite the vocal opposition. Thank you all you called your legislators asking for their support.
