How do you feel about mandatory vaccines? No US federal laws mandate vaccination, should they?


The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends getting 28 doses of 10 vaccines for kids aged 0 to six. No US federal laws mandate vaccination, but all 50 states require certain vaccinations for children entering public schools. Most states offer medical and religious exemptions; some states allow philosophical exemptions. Proponents contend adverse reactions to vaccines are extremely rare. Opponents say that children’s immune systems can deal with most infections naturally, & that injecting questionable vaccine ingredients may cause side effects, including seizures, paralysis, and death.

    Compulsory vaccine laws have strong support in the state&federal courts for over a century.SupremeCt found constitutionality of a statute authorizing a municipal board of health to require enforce vaccination a valid exercise of thestate’spower.

    I'm wondering,did I write that?Cause I very well could have.Well said,but I do have a question.Though rare there can be side effects.If vaccines are mandated don't you think it only fair expense caused by side effects be paid for by the gov't?

    I agree with you. It also would be that the only ones that get that and spread it would only be the ones who are not immunized, not the ones that have been. Who got it first is the ? and where id they get it from?

    I completely agree, I am not against all vaccines, but as a country we vaccinate our kids far more than other countries do, why? I'm with you "Mandatory" over anything about our own bodies is a scary place to go.

    Hey, Mike, the bubble isgreat.We could totally eliminate public schools&put curriculums on the internet.Children wouldn't have to leave home,think of the money the gov't would save=lower taxes. Graduates could work from home, less demand for gas.
