source: Republicans red-faced as rivals seize on vaccination row - World - NZ Herald NewsThe Republican Party was on the defensive yesterday after two of its leading presidential hopefuls indicated that they had sympathy for parents unwilling to vaccinate their children against infectious diseases, even in the midst of a dangerous outbreak of measles centred in California.
One day after both Senator Rand Paul and Governor Chris Christie publicly questioned the requirement for parents to vaccinate their offspring, the Speaker of the House in Congress, John Boehner, said all children in the United States should be vaccinated. So far the outbreak, which has been traced back to the Disneyland theme park in California, has infected more than 100 people in the US.
So how do you feel about Vaccinations? I personally feel like they should be mandatory if parents want to enroll their children in any school or daycare. If Parents want to be stupid and not get their kids vaccinated, I don't want those plague carriers near my own.
