New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg successfully pushed a highly controversial mandate through his NYC Board of Health on Wednesday, which stipulates all children between the ages of 6 months and 4 years, 11 months, that attend a NYC licensed daycare or pre-school must receive the annual flu shot. Set to go into effect in approximately 30 days, the mandate is expected to affect as many as 150,000 children in the NYC area. Autism activists and enraged parents held a protest Wednesday morning in resistance to the proposed mandate, yet their voices went unheard by the Bloomberg appointees, as the measure passed unanimously. Angry that their rights as parents were being infringed upon and angry at the dangers that the vaccine will pose to children, the group, as well as supporters around the country, was clearly disturbed.
