Child Vaccination Policy's A recent outbreak of measles has brought the attention to the fact that there may need to be a change to the current vaccination policy. The issue arising is whether or not there should be a law making it mandatory to vaccinate all children. There are parents on both sides, some saying the law should be in place, others wanting the freedom to choose. Measles is not usually a very deadly disease, however 1-2 out of 1000 die. This puts the health of children, and the freedom of choice at steak. The first solution is that doctors should recommend that parents vaccinate their children. This would allow the parents to still have the choice to vaccinate their kids or not. According to the article "Everything you need to know about measles" it says"The first dose given at 12 months is about 95 percent effective. The second dose given at age 4-6 years, improves those odds to 98-99 percent.". This shows that parents have good reason to vaccinate their children as the chances to catch measles is low. The second solution is that there could be a law making it mandatory to vaccinate all children. In "The ethical negligence of parents who refuse to vaccinate their children" it's written "With the rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, it's even more important to make sure children are immunized. Some vaccines protect against viruses that can lead to secondary bacterial infections. Other vaccines protect against bacterial diseases themselves. In both cases, the threat of antibiotic resistance hovers over the vaccine controversy.". If every kid were to be vaccinated than the chance of other kids getting it is very low, making the death rate down to 1/100000. On the other hand letting the states decide whether or not to make vaccines mandatory would allow citizens to move to which ever state they agree with the policy on. As mentioned in "Bill To Limit Vaccine Exemptions Moves A Step Closer In California" it states "A California bill that would allow students to opt out of mandatory school vaccinations only if they have a medical condition that justifies an exemption is one step closer to becoming a law, though it still has a long way to go. The bill was introduced in the California senate in response to a measles outbreak at Disneyland in late December that's now linked to almost 150 infections.". Certain states have already implemented this law and those states have very small amounts of measles cases. tap and hold to changethis text! To let the states decide costs no money to implement and has proven to succeed. The fact that the states get to choose lets people decide to either comply with their state or move to another state with a law they comply with. This is very possible as it requires no change to the current law and most people will comply with it. People still have their freedoms of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness guaranteed in the Declaration Of Independence. By: Alex Green, Alexx Addington, And Charlotte Cox.
