(Daily Mail) The outraged parents of 44 pupils who have not been vaccinated against the measles have filed a federal lawsuit to get their children back in school.

The children from Green Meadow Waldorf school had been told by authorities in December that they would not be allowed to enter the school as they had not been vaccinated against the measles virus.

However their parents are now taking a stand against the decision made by the Rockland health department arguing ‘the medical benefits of the vaccination are debatable’.
