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

Autism sure beats growing up in a polio tube.

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.

Then get another government. Otherwise quit putting me at risk because you're insane.

The majority anti-vax argument isn't just that it causes autism but that it causes almost any chronic health issues. It's my belief that this stems from people doing poor independent research and believing non-peer reviewed data. I agree the best thing we can do is educate. However, to the scientific illiterate, nothing you say can convince them.

Educating them in the basic science around it was sort of implied, how else will you help them to understand.

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

That is a great way to put it.

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

I don't believe regulation is the way to deal with this either. But what would you propose we do to fix this problem? Bottom line is that kids are getting infected by easily preventable diseases and something needs to be done.

Just like a vegan. First thing he says "I'm vegan". Just like you, but you say " I'm willing to let my kids die because I read fake studies about vaccines and then say it was fault of the vaccines even if I was vaccinated and I turned alright even if a little dumb."

We can just have a simple rule: either you vaccinate, or you don't get to live near other people. Some people can't receive vaccines due to health issues, and depend on everyone around them being properly immunized and not carrying diseases near them. We already have plenty of laws that tell you what to do regarding public sanitation; being a potential walking biohazard should be part of that.

The only exemptions should be medical period.

I am mostly libertarian... except when it comes to this. vaccines should be applied by any means necessary.
M.Twain 6 months
Son, I lean libertarian as well and required vaccination is in line with libertarian thought. A person's rights ends at the tip of one's nose. No one has the right to infringe upon another person rights. The measle germ is air born and can last for up to 2 hours in the air.
