Vaccinations should be mandatory to eligible children before reaching adolescence not just to protect them, but to protect the health within the community. Vaccines are safe and effective. They are cost-effective compared to medical treatment. Severe reaction from vaccines occurs rarely. Deaths due to vaccine-preventable diseases are undeniably high. Preventing this deaths through vaccinations does not only save lives, but it is also beneficial for the growth of the community. Stories that lacks scientific evidence continues to spread and if this continues to happen, future generations will be unvaccinated and can lead to a big outbreak. Take an action. Parents will do everything to keep their children safe. Protect them. Vaccinate them.


First off i am throwing a link at you.

It isn't the vaccines that are eradicating diseases, it is quarantine conditions.

What did they do when someone infected with E-bola?

They immediately closed the person off to society.

Vaccines are not necessary.

Now for ethics...

You know abortion?

Killing fetuses?

Yeah, they inject you with them.

If that isn't enough for the ethics then what is?

Is it by chance they put that part at the very bottom?

I think not.

Then there is freedom of religion.

I am not vaccinated because of my faith (religion).

MCopper1992 forfeited this round.



Also freedom of religion is expressed in the first amendment.

Making it mandatory would be a violation of this.

But justified by the risk of spreading disease?

Vaccines don't actually help that much.

It is healthy practices such as hand washing that get the job done.

You didn't read anything but the last line.

Also, I would just like to point out that the link you supplied is laughable, it's better to trust real researchers rather than these sorts of unscientific, incorrect information.
