    No child should be allowed into public schools, private schools, or any college without all of their vaccinations regardless of personal choice, religion or just plain stupidity. We as a country had all but eradicated measles and now we have to start worrying again. The parents who choose to not vaccinate should keep their children away from the rest of the population, they don't have the right to cause another innocent child or anyone else for that matter, to get sick. That is just irresponsible and I will repeat, STUPID. Find another cause, one that only affects your family, not potentially mine or anyone else's.

      Do some research Leo. I believe avoiding vaccinations is a smart decision. I would say no child should be forced to have shots. A Mountaineer is always free, well unless he or she is a child in public school, in which case the rights to his or her bloodstream are forfeited.

        Works for me, just homeschool them through college.

          Leo doesn't seem to believe in freedom, just the illusion of freedom that the Government and mass media projects.

            Are you one of those hippie dudes I have read about?

      Why don't you ask all the people who has had severe side affects and has or nearly died from them over the years, Mr. Vaccine.
