NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — A New York judge declined on Wednesday to issue an immediate ruling on whether unvaccinated New Yorkers can go back to school.

Parents of children who have been affected by the state’s elimination of the religious exemption to otherwise mandatory vaccines sought a court order to allow their children to return to class.

Parents and children looking for the order packed the hearing and surrounded the courthouse in Albany.

The religious exemption was eliminated in June following the biggest outbreak of measles in 25 years.
