It's ridiculous that in 2019, with all the outbreaks that have happened in the last 1-3 years, that we are still having the conversation of whether or not we should vaccinate.

Kudos to Italy's 2017 law mandating the 10 vaccines it does. Hopefully the U.S. will follow that practice.

Of course they should. We allow young girls in New York to get birth control and to have abortions without the parental notification or consent. Certainly getting vaccinated should be allowed.

Social media has villanized the modern age of vaccination. The ad hoc self medical knowledge has reversed decades of progress against these dangerous and ever present diseases. Every individual has the obligation to educate them self about the benefits of modern medical advances and make the decision for them self to vaccinate or run the risk of disease.and possible death.
