Judge halts mandatory flu vaccines for healthcare workers
New York Times, October 16, 2009
A judge on Friday halted enforcement of a New York State directive requiring that all healthcare workers be vaccinated for the seasonal flu and swine flu. The temporary restraining order by the judge, Thomas J. McNamara, an acting justice of the State Supreme Court in Albany, is likely to add to the growing debate about the flu vaccine. Justice McNamara scheduled a hearing on the case for Oct. 30.
