    Vaccinations before School??

    According to the Massachusetts Legislature, children must be vaccinated against diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, measles, and poliomyelitis before entering school unless there is some endangering reason to the child why they cannot have the vaccination. Many believe this should continue to stay a law, but in the past 20 years, this has been a question if this should stay a law as more and more parents are against vaccinating their children.

    What are your thoughts?

    That if you consult your pediatrician and he recommends the vaccinations are safe for your child, and you dont do it, you are a very ignorant and dangerous parent.

    That could be straight out of A Brave New World but is comfortingly less fascistoid than 1989.

    schools and hospitals are incubators, so i support requiring kids to be vaccinated before they are allowed to attend.

    Unless your kid's doctor recommends against it, if you choose not to vaccinate your child, you're not only endangering her, but all other children in his/her school.

    Keep up with your kids' vaccinations. To do otherwise is stupid and irresponsible.

    While I believe that society should be allowed to protect itself, I also think that it should be closely restricted by the Constitution. Infringing on the protections of the citizens should not be allowed till the Constitution has been amended to allow it. It is vastly negligent or ignorant of a citizen to want a majority to do otherwise.

    Another pseudo-intellectually empty response, please feel free to provide us with facts that refute my statement that vaccination programs are better for individuals and society.

    That might be alright for private schools. For public schools such a restriction would require catastrophic circumstances or a change to the Constitution I should think.

    Vaccination programs (required vaccination) can require catastrophic consequences? Require how? And please specify these catastrophic circumstances. And please also specify what change(s) is needed for the Constitution.

    Please be specific.

    I realize your statist approach to individual rights. But you do surprise me that you might think of having read standard parables of our culture might be confused with intellectualism.
