The announcement from Lakewood teachers and threats from schools to not allow unvaccinated children in school, appears to have worked – at least for the most part.
Administrators from two schools in Lakewood tell TLS most of the anti-vaxxer children in fact went last night to get vaccinated, while some chose to stand their ground.
One school said the parents of only about eight children stood their ground and refused to vaccinate. They were not allowed to return to school.
The schools took a harsher stance on the exclusion after the guidelines allowing for the exclusion were updated by the Ocean County Health Department.
According to attorneys too, the schools have full right to exlcuse unvaccinated children from school.
TLS has learned that there are at least two law firms who are may be offering pro bono work on behalf of the schools being threatened by the anti-vaxxers.
