Should vaccines be mandatory?Posted by: NewLifeChristian
The definition of "vaccine", according to Google, is, "a substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or several diseases, prepared from the causative agent of a disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, treated to act as an antigen without inducing the disease."
Yes, vaccines should be mandatory.
No, vaccines should not be mandatory.
it's selfish to not vaccinate your putting everyone's lives at risk
Due to herd immunity, vaccination is a health issue, not an individual issue.
Vaccines are most effective if the population is vaccinated. A vaccinated population has a higher quality of life than a population without vaccinations. It then follows that the more people that are vaccinated in a population, the higher the quality of life will be. A government needs to look out for the quality of life for all the people, and that means that vaccines should be required.
If we don't all use vaccines, the vaccines will be invalidated when the pathogen mutates, and people will DIE if they aren't vaccinated, because of some lie on the internet. Many people, even in rich countries, die of the "most harmless" diseases, like the common cold, influenza, rotovirus, and unknown pathogens we think nothing of, like a stomach ache. Humans spread rotovirus and gastroenteritis, which kills livestock, increasing the cost of meat. If we all vaccinate, the cost of meat will decrease. Cool, huh?
This idea of a "right to choose" in this case is ridiculous. You dont have the right to choose to murder someone, you dont have the right to choose not to pay taxes, you dont have the right to choose to not go to school.
You're putting your child and many others in danger when you don't vaccinate for an complete lie of a "theory".
Just saying, but the pictures shown are biased.
Excluding those with compromised immune systems or who are allergic to the ingredients, people should be forced to be vaccinated, at least if they are going to work in the public sector or attend public schools and institutions.
People have the right to not be jabbed in the arm. The government has no place to force us to receive vaccinations.
Personally, I believe in vaccinations for certain diseases. However, that belief should not be forced on people.
People use the word "should" far too often when phrasing their questions. No, no one "should" have to get a vaccine, as a duty or obligation. However, if they don't want to die from whatever disease it is the vaccine protects them from or lower their chances of dying from the disease, they should get the vaccine. Is it a duty or obligation to make vaccines mandatory? No.
Mandatory for public school attendance? Yes, absolutely. But taking away kids who haven't been vaccinated? That's ridiculous. If a kid isn't in a public school, then the government shouldn't mandate that they be vaccinated.
fuck that people should have a choice
No government should force you to vaccinate. Especially considering that there is less than a 5% chance that it will be effective. They've shown to do more harm than good.
People have the right to chose their medical procedures.
No, I am a Libertarian.
Vaccines can, have and do cause harm. If they did not, then the VICP would not have paid out over 3 billion dollars to vaccine injured children. If a medical procedure carries with it risk, then there must be personal choice. It is never right to mandate a medical procedure that carries with it risk onto someone for the "safety" of another. Never. If you believe otherwise, then you are the enemy of free man everywhere.
That is like the seat belt law. Wearing a seat belt will not harm anyone but me, so why do I have to wear one? What gives the government the right to tell me how I have to keep myself safe? With vaccines, it virtually the same idea. Every time I get a vaccine, I just get sicker and more often than when I don't. I don't need the flippin' higher-ups telling me what I can and can't do concerning my health!
Educated people believe in the right to choose.
It's pretty funny how the no side has more comments than the other yet less votes. It just goes to show how idiotic the ones who want to make it mandatory. We have the right to not get jabbed in the arm with toxins.
