A federal judge denied a temporary injunction on Tuesday that would have allowed 44 unvaccinated children to return to school.
Parents of unvaccinated children attending Green Meadow Waldorf School in Rockland County, New York, brought this suit challenging an exclusion order by the Rockland County Health Department barring unvaccinated children from attending schools where the vaccination rate is less than 95 percent. The exclusion order is part of the health department's efforts to quell a recent measles outbreak.
