Washington lawmakers weigh vaccine bill amid outbreak

Amid a measles outbreak, Washington lawmakers heard testimony Friday on a bill that would remove parents’ ability to claim a personal or philosophical exemption to opt their children out of the combined measles, mumps and rubella vaccine. The bill comes as health officials have reported at least 52 known cases in Washington state and four in Oregon.

The only exemptions should be medical period.

As much as I dislike big govt, this is a public health issue. Diehard anti-vaxxers who refuse to get with a safe program should be offered to change places with law-abiding immigrants.

People should not be forced by the governemnt to put anything into their bodies. however these idiot anti-vaxxers are endangering people and bringing diseases back that we have already got rid of. The best thing we can do is educate people on the importance of vaccines and how they aren't causeing autism. They will then make the decision themselves to vaccinate.

CS, you and your family don't have the right to infect others.

I’m pretty sure most people would rather be autistic than incomprehensibly incompetent.

The government doesn't get to tell me or my family what we inject into our bodies.
