NYS Legislature: Bill Could Allow Vaccinations Without Parents' Consent

State lawmakers are set to introduce a bill that could let teens get vaccinated without their parents' consent.

The legislation would let anyone under 14 get shots to prevent diseases like measles, HPV and meningitis.

The proposal comes as the state is dealing with one of its worst measles outbreaks in recent memory with over 200 cases reported.

Right now, New York allows parents to skip vaccinating their kids for medical and religious reasons.
