A teenager from Kentucky fell ill with chickenpox while suing the city because of his removal from school through a reluctance to be vaccinated
A Kentucky teenager, Jerome Kunkl, who filed a lawsuit against the local health department after being suspended from school for not wanting to get a chickenpox vaccine, contracted the disease two months after the lawsuit.
His lawyer said that the teenager fell ill in early May, he recovered and returned to classes at the 8 school in May, reports CNN.
However, the guy has already missed seven weeks of classes in the senior class.
"This is funny. Because they issued a ban (for students who do not have chickenpox vaccinations) from going to school for 21 days, and then they extended it because another child with chickenpox came along. And in the end, when the ban period came to an end, I fell ill with chickenpox, which should have extended the ban, but for some reason they did not, ”said Kunkle.
The Department of Health in Northern Kentucky issued a ban on school attendance by unvaccinated students against chicken pox in March to curb the outbreak of the disease at Jerome’s school, in this school of chicken pox they infected 32 people.
Kunkl appealed against the ban in court, but eventually he himself became infected with smallpox, and the ban was lifted by the Department as the outbreak subsided.
Recall, the anti-vaccination movement, believing that vaccination can harm the health of their children, is quite developed. In addition, some orthodox religious movements urge believers to refuse vaccinations. Because of this, in the US there is a surge in measles cases.
In addition, the Oregon family survived a terrible two months while their 6 year old son battled against tetanus. However, after the boy recovered, his parents still refused to be vaccinated.
