Speaking out on vaccine rights

-A A +A

In response to recent concerns voiced about vaccine rights, this is a case of the rights of the many vs. the rights of the few.  Vaccines only work to preserve the general population if “herd immunity” is achieved, when vaccines are administered to a high percentage (85 percent).  
With fewer parents vaccinating their children whether due to personal choice, safety concerns or greater awareness of the health risks to a susceptible child, this high percentage is not being met in some areas and outbreaks have occurred.  Our medical community is rightly concerned and has tightened the circumstances under which a parent may refuse to vaccinate their children.
Is the information now required too onerous or private for our government to collect?  Good point.  Are so many parents now refusing to give vaccines that the rest of the population is at risk?  And doesn’t that majority have the right to health?  Good point.  Both groups have their rights infringed.  Which group is larger?  Which rights are more important?
