A recent law passed in New York requires that all children must be fully vaccinated within the first two weeks of school – regardless of any previous religious exemptions. This new law was prompted by a measles outbreak in New York back in October 2018. Many parents have since started homeschooling in NY to avoid this legislation. Lawmakers in New York voted to end religious exemptions for immunizations, overcoming opposition by those who believe the law infringes on religious freedoms and constitutional rights. The new legislation is effectively forcing parents who wish to not vaccinate their children – regardless of religious or personal beliefs – to either vaccinate, homeschool their children, or move out of state.
