Maryland schools plan to ban thousands of students from attending class over new mandatory vaccine requirements.
Maryland students are required to receive vaccinations for chicken pox, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, and meningitis and parents are required to provide proof within 20 calendar days from the start of school, but thousands of students across the state are out of compliance, the Baltimore Sun reports.
This week, students without the proper immunizations will be banned from class until their parents provide proof they received the shots.
“… Baltimore County barred hundreds of children from school this week after failing to meet a Tuesday deadline for required vaccinations,” according to the news site.
