I understand that many Hasidic Jews in Rockland County, NY and elsewhere are refusing to have their children vaccinated against the measles.

What religious or other basis do these persons have for their refusal?

@gollum,
None of the major world religions have any problem with vaccinations, but there are some religious sects that claim that some religious tenet or another speaks to vaccinations. You can claim anything you want if you wrap it in religion. The Hasidic Jewish community is not unique in this.
