To Vaccinate Or Not To Vaccinate?

July 13, 2018

In California, the law says there is no question, unless a doctor says there is a medical reason not to. Two years after that law took effect, the state’s immunization rates are near their highest levels. Yet experts say there are pockets of resistance — at 105 schools, 10% or more of kindergartners had a medical exemption in the school year that ended last month, according to a Los Angeles Times analysis. The debate over how the law is enforced looks to be the next battleground over vaccines.

Those of us of a certain age recall how some diseases severely impacted our families and how relieved parents were when immunizations came along. Now some seem not to know the dread and horror of the diseases we thought had been eliminated.
