    Yeah, like the right to NOT drive a car just like the right to NOT take a shot.

    That's like saying you don't have sovereignty over your own body because you're not allowed to go around using your own body to punch people for no reason.

    Yes. If you want to engage in an activity, there can be requirements for doing so.

    Going to public school? Follow your state's vaccination requirements. Driving a car? Follow your state's driving requirements. What's the issue?

    What in the ****?

    No, it isn't like saying that. One is having your body violated and the other is violating a different person...

    If somebody here has an issue it is you... I already follow all requirements.

    It's a general "you." Clearly, what I am saying is applied to the general population and not just yourself.

    Starting an epidemic isn't violating a different person?

    The mortality rate for measles is very small, especially for those who are otherwise healthy and living in a developed nation such as ours.

    Measles — United States, January 1–May 23, 2014

    In fact, even in a place like the Philippines, the number of deaths is small compared to the number of suspected/confirmed cases, 32,000 cases with only 41 deaths. That is less than a 1% mortality rate. In fact, its about 0.13% mortality.

    No deaths from at least 288 cases in the US in the first part of 2014.

    That's just the way it was.

    Today children are still required to go school ( between ages 5/6 to 16 ) or be home schooled.
    Is that setting precedent that could lead the government to forcing other things upon it citizens ?
    Requiring for public school and requiring for being alive in the US are two different things. Nuance is important here.
