Courts to hear case on vaccination requirements

A hearing is set for Friday in Elkins over the new state vaccination requirements. A Pickens high school student and her father sued the county school board over the mandatory immunizations, and the district filed a motion to dismiss the complaint, arguing the state Department of Health and Human Resources should have been a defendant, and lawsuits against state agencies must be filed in Kanawha County. Other motions have been filed as well, and once it's all decided the outcome could have major implications on the vaccination rules for all West Virginia students.
