The Kentucky Teen Who Refused Chickenpox Vaccine Now Has Chickenpox

Kentucky teen Jerome Kunkel refused the chickenpox vaccine and then quickly contracted the disease.

Northern Kentucky Health Department required that all students who attended his school get vaccinated.

This was due to a February outbreak that affected more than 30 students.

Kunkel unsuccessfully sued the health department after claiming the vaccine violated his Catholic beliefs.

Chickenpox symptoms include an itchy, blister-like rash that can spread across the entire body.
