"Polio was once America's most-feared disease, causing death and paralysis across the country, but today, thanks to vaccination, there are no reports of polio in the United States." In recent years people have been becoming "anti-vaxxers" These people do not vaccinate their children, but getting back on topic, vaccines can save lives, and they are completely safe.
According To most anti vaccine sites I have visited most people just want vaccines to be their choice. Vaccines don't just stop you from getting sick, it helps those who don't vaccinate. There is a thing called herd immunity, if enough people get vaccinated, it can stop a disease from spreading to people who do not vaccinate. But if more people do not vaccinate, it can get though, and sicken the people who do not vaccinate. Causing unnecessary sickness and disease. Vaccines are safe and effective. The only danger is an allergic reaction. There is no mercury or toxic substances in vaccines.
Vaccines are safe, and effective.

Elliott, nice wisdom. However if you want to debate against, you should argue against the entire thing. Including criminals.

Mandatory means compulsion under threat of force.

I'm against the use of physical force on anyone. (Criminals etc excluded)

Therefore I'm against mandatory anything.
