A New York appeals court court has overturned a Bloomberg-era regulation requiring all children to obtain a flu shot in order to attend NYC preschools, daycare centers, or Head Start programs.
The rule, which aimed to increase flu vaccination among children 6-59 months of age, was set to go into effect in Jan. 1, 2016, Activist.com
