A Kentucky teenager who refuses to get the chickenpox vaccine on religious grounds is suing his school for barring him from basketball practice.

Jerome Kunkel, an 18-year-old senior and basketball captain at a Catholic school in Walton, objects to vaccines because he believes they 'contain aborted fetal cells'.

But his stance means he is automatically banned from completing his final term of classes and extracurricular activities at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart/Assumption Academy amid an outbreak affecting 32 people.

The Northern Kentucky Health Department announced last week that all students who are not vaccinated are not allowed to attend school 'ntil 21 days after the onset of rash for the last ill student or staff member.'
