( CINCINNATI ENQUIRER)– The Northern Ky. high school trainee who litigated over restrictions due to not being immunized for chickenpox, has come down with the disease.

His family filed a claim versus the health department after students without proof of vaccination or evidence of immunity against the infection were prohibited from school for 21 days following a break out.

Kunkel is a student at Assumption Academy in Walton, Ky.. Numerous parochial students in the area have religious exemptions from the vaccine.

His attorney states Kunkel is great, albeit a little itchy.
