 Five-Year-Old Girl Without Chicken Pox Vaccination Banned from School

A 5-year-old girl, Frankie Elizabeth Staiti, on Staten Island is banned from her kindergarten class because she has not been vaccinated against the chicken pox.

Frankie Elizabeth has a 14-week-old baby sister, Devin Elizabeth. Her doctor is concerned that the vaccination, containing live virus might affect the baby and has refused to give vaccination to Frankie. According to the doctor, the baby might have inherited her mother's immunodeficiency disease, which may increase the risk of infection.

However, the family's request for a medical exemption from the Department of Education has been denied.

Elizabeth Wagner, the mother of the girl, is busy making arrangements for homeschooling and plans to appeal to the State of New York for a waiver.
