Anti-Vaxxers Sue Over Vaccine Mandate

According to Huffington Post, A group of parents in Brooklyn are suing the New York City health department for ordering mandatory measles vaccinations in parts of the borough earlier this month amid a growing outbreak of the highly contagious virus.

The mandate, which affects four ZIP codes in the Williamsburg area largely inhabited by an Orthodox Jewish community, is a violation of public health law, according to the lawsuit, filed Monday in Kings County Supreme Court.
