NYC parents go to court since Mayor Bloomberg overstepped his powers and made the order by executive fiat.

Montesquieu is rolling in his grave!

A mandate for all New York City toddlers of a certain age to receive flu shots amounts to a "bold and gross violation of the separation of powers," five parents claim in court.
"There is literally no legislative grant permitting the DOH to grant itself the authority to mandate any vaccine it desires and create an unprecedented regime to enforce its self-created dictates," the complaint filed Monday in Manhattan Supreme Court states, abbreviating the Department of Health. "None."
The rule in question, which the plaintiff parents call "unprecedented," mandates that all children between 6 and 59 months in New York receive annual influenza vaccines.
The Health Department adopted the rule upon orders two years ago from then New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, tracking earlier recommendations of the Center for Disease Control.

They are also doing this in FL daycares-- not all of them *yet*. I have a close friend who vaccinates on schedule but will not do the flu shot for herself or her family- she agrees with the schedule to a certain point. She (along with many parents) is angry about it because they are being forced to comply or lose their spot.

Sadly, they're going to lose this case. The NYS "justice" system doesn't have a good track record on these matters. A court in WV already upheld the power of state employees to mandate whatever they want on children.
