some parents (and hence many politicians) think parents should get a "measure of" choice about vaccinating their kids. hrm. okay let's restrict this conversation to kids that can be vaccinated. and not about the kids who legitimately can't be. like those too young. and those with compromised immune systems. like those going through yet another round of chemotherapy. okay? yes. good. on we go. before sending your kids to school, or any other place where they're likely to encounter other kids, like say disneyland for cryin' out loud, you must: give them their vaccinations or give them the disease. and if you're too stupid to understand the concept of herd immunity or too stupid to trust the people whose kids don't get sick, then you have a slightly different choice: vaccinate your kids or kill them.
