Re: SHOULD YOUR STATE FORCE VACCINES ON YOUR CHILDREN ?

I've a bit more nuanced opinion than most.

The state forcing something into your body is intrusive. So I am against requiring vaccines simply as requisite to exist in this country.

However, I'm ok with the child being allowed to override the parent and make their own decision to vaccinate if they're old enough (maybe 13? the minimum age to get accounts with various internet services).

I'm also ok with requiring the most important vaccines to attend public schools so long as another option is available, but those vaccines must be specified in the law (so they can't make the annual flu shot required, for example). If someone is objecting to vaccines for religious reasons, there should hopefully be a private/religious school available that will allow it. Maybe it will create demand and new religious schools will crop up. There's always homeschooling as well.
