Vaccination choice group to hold rally

Proponents of giving parents a choice as to whether to vaccinate their children plan to rally in front of the New Jersey Statehouse Thursday. They want to press the Corzine administration to allow parents to opt out of new vaccines required by the state for children enrolling in school.

In September, the state started requiring all preschoolers and children attending licensed child care centers to receive a flu vaccine and three additional immunizations.

Assemblywoman Charlotte Vandervalk and members of The NJ Coalition for Vaccination Choice are among those planning to attend Thursday's rally.

They oppose the new vaccine requirements and support a bill that would allow parents the option of choosing which vaccines their children get, or none at all.
