Dozens of students at local schools who were granted a religious exemption from immunizations will need to receive immunizations or be home schooled.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed the legislation last month. The majority, 85%, said they support ending religious exemptions for vaccinations in order to attend school.
