Suit Seeks Religious Exemption From Catholic School For Immunization Requirement

Fox News yesterday reported on a lawsuit filed in a Nassau County, New York state court against a Catholic high school by parents of a 14-year old seeking to require the school to accept their religious objections to vaccination requirements and enroll their son.  The parents, Andrea and Paul Polydor, say they believe that immunizations defile bodies as created by God and show a lack of faith in God and his divinely created immune system. Kellenberg Memorial High School says state law requires a Certificate of Immunization before students can begin to attend classes. New York law does provide for religious exemptions if the school determines the objections are legitimate.
